Anglophone Crisis -- Paul Biya Orders The Admission Of 80 Southern Cameroonians Into ENAM

The Minister of Public Service and Administrative Reforms has issued a press release launching two competitive entrance examinations to recruit 80 English-speaking Cameroonians into the National School of Administration and Magistracy (ENAM).

The decision that came on Tuesday is a desperate attempt by the government to solve some of the problems raised by some Common Law lawyers, which is part of the raison d’être of the unrest in West Cameroon.

According to the press release, the president of Cameroon has instructed the Minister of Public Service and Administrative Reforms to launch two competitive examinations “for the special recruitment of 50 (fifty) Pupil Magistrates and 30 (thirty) student Court Registrars of English expression into the Magistracy and Registry Division of the National School of Administration and Magistracy (NSAM) for the 2017/2018 academic year…”

The written phase of the examinations will be done exclusively in English, and shall take place in the chief towns of the Centre, North, North West and South West regions, says the press release.

In the meantime, serial examinations organized by the institution are yet to be launched.

This is one in a line of desperate attempts by the government to handle the concerns raised by Southern Cameroonians, fighting against what they call their marginalization by their French-speaking compatriots.

Previously the Minister of Justice had announced the creation of a department of Common Law in the same institution. A department of Common Law had equally been created at the French-speaking state universities in the country, as well as a department of French Private Law in the two universities in West Cameroon.

This move targets principally Common Law lawyers who have been denouncing the invasion of their legal life by civil law professionals, among other things.

The unrest in West Cameroon began in November 2016.
