Anglophones Block Biya In New York Hotel

Takumbengs took to the streets of New York

A crowd of Southern Cameroonians (Amazonians) stormed the hotel where president Paul  Biya and wife Chantal are staying in New York. The protesters blocked the hotel's entrance, preventing Paul Biya and his delegation from making the slightest move. According to reports, the President of the Republic reportedly instructed the Cameroon ambassador to the United States to ask the US government to disperse the demonstrators.

This demonstration came a few hours after those by the Anglophone population in several cities, towns and villages of the Southern Cameroon.

President Biya is in New York since Thursday September 21, 2017, to take part in the 72nd United Nations General Assembly (UNGA72). On Friday he addressed the UNGA72  but did not mention the crisis in the Anglophone Region. The hall was very scanty during his speech. It’s not clear whether it was a boycott or mere coincidence that many delegates had abandoned their seats.
