English Speaking teachers in Cameroon embark on indefinite strike
Teachers from the two English speaking regions in Cameroon have embarked on an indefinite strike action to protest against the non respect of the Anglophone system of education in the country.
Cameroon, a former British and French colony uses two systems of education that were put in place by the colonial masters.
The strike came barely a week after a similar action was taken by English speaking lawyers in Cameroon. The demonstration of the legal experts was dispersed by Cameroonian police with some lawyers beaten and wounded.
President Paul Biya of Cameroon, who has been in power for more than three decades is on record for his repressive measures against opponents of his regime.
