The leading opposition party in Cameroon, the Social Democratic Front, SDF,
has announced it would not be taking part in the upcoming National day celebrations, 20th May 2017.
An internal circular from the party’s chairman, Ni John Fru Ndi issued May 7, to party officials,
said the decision is to protest against Cameroon government’s intransigence and inertia.
Though not making direct mention to the ongoing apparent tension in the two Anglophone regions of Cameroon,
there are indications that the SDF position vis-a-vis crisis that is already in its 7th month, might be a booster to organisations and movements clamouring for the restoration of the independence of Southern Cameroons.
