Having lived in Cameroon for 3 years, I would say that the shutdown in
these two region is no different from shutdowns witnessed in Uganda and
Gambia for instance. It is simply the political elite using their political
influence to prevent the human rights violations calling for federation in
these areas. The two areas made up of Anglophones, who have been
marginalized largely because of their language and their calls for
federation have been met by internet shutdown and full force of security
agents. It is this that the Cameroon government does not want to be easily
distributed within the social media.
