The Secretary General of the United Nations, António Guterres, through his Spokesman, Stéphane Dujarric, has condemned in strong terms the violence in the Northwest and Southwest Regions that led to the slaying of over a hundred people.

The UN Scribe vented out his condemnation in a recent press release issued by his Spokesman.
According to the communiqué, “the Secretary-General remains deeply concerned about the situation in Cameroon and strongly condemns the acts of violence reported in the Southwest and Northwest Regions of the country on October 1, including reported loss of life.

He calls on the Cameroonian authorities to investigate these incidents and urges political leaders on both sides to appeal to their followers to refrain from any further acts of violence, and to unequivocally condemn all actions that undermine the peace, stability and unity of the country,” read the communiqué in parts.

Guterres lauded the move taken by the authorities for dialogue and encouraged the representatives of the Anglophone community to seize the opportunity in their quest for solutions to the community’s grievances, within the framework of the Cameroonian Constitution.

The UN Scribe reiterated the support of the United Nations for such efforts, through the United Nations Regional Office for Central Africa, UNOCA.

Guterres’ recent press released followed a September 28 communiqué, in which he had called on the Government to engage in inclusive and honest dialogue with the Anglophones and restrain the forces of law and order from using bullets on the unarmed citizens.
