Edith Kah Walla wants Cameroonians to seat out Biya through street protest
Kah Walla Edith wants Cameroonians to take to the streets.
For the politician, the people must, through the street, bring down the regime of Paul Biya.
According to the president of the Cameroon people party (CPP) who dares to compare Omar El Bechir with Paul Biya.
Indeed, the Sudanese president was ousted from power after a popular revolt.
On ABK radio, on the show “Osons le dire”, Kah Walla believes that a departure of Paul Biya could allow a resolution of the Anglophone crisis.
“Biya’s violence represents nothing like that of Omar Hassan el-Bechir (Sudanese president overturned by the street Editor’s note).
If Paul Biya leaves today, we have a chance to recover the English speakers, “said Kah Walla.
According to the 55-year-old activist, the fall of Paul Biya is the only way to bring peace to English-speaking zones.
Kah Walla even reflects on the post-Biya period. According to her, after the departure of Paul Biya, we will have to set up a transitional government.
This government would spend two years and lead the real national dialogue.
Recall that during the legislative and municipal elections, Kah Walla also campaigned for a boycott.
Kah Walla and the Anglophone Crisis
In March 2019 she aroused controversy and criticism among many Anglophone Cameroonians for remarks that she made during a panel discussion at the Elliott School of International Affairs at the George
She was speaking at an event titled “Crisis in Cameroon.”
Sitting alongside the Institute for African Studies Director, Jennifer Cooke, and R. Maxwell Bone, and a student at the university who had spent time in the Anglophone regions of Cameroon.
She made comments accusing the Anglophone Secessionists operating from diaspora of lies and hypocrisy.
The remarks that she made elicited agreement from Jennifer Cooke and R. Maxwell Bone and subsequently went viral on social media.
This led to criticisms of the fellow panelists of being biased and opposed to Anglophone Secession, and accusations that she wanted to become a minister in the current government of Paul Biya.
She, along with the two other panelists said that the comments were taken out of context, and that she and Bone and Cooke alike were critical of the Cameroonian government during other potions of the panel.
Following the panel, both she and R. Maxwell Bone were subjugated to death threats, and intimidation from individuals affiliated with the Ambazonian cause.
This was particularly worrisome to R. Maxwell Bone who works extensively with NGOs in Anglophone Cameroon.
Kah resides in Douala, so the threats were not deemed as an immediate danger to her.
As of the summer of 2019, they continue to be the subject of threats, misinformation, and intimidation.
Claims have been made that this shows the true nature of Ambazonian secessionists, a claim that secessionists deny.
