Fed up by those who blame them for poverty in the land, ordinary Cameroonians have launched a worldwide campaign to celebrate their unity in diversity with their national flag. The hashtag for the campaign is #unitychallengecameroon.
Pictures spreading on the social media show ordinary Cameroonians holding or covering their bodies with their green, red and yellow national flag. The campaign is expected to quickly spread across the world, those who started it say.
Anglophones have been agitating for independence, arguing that they were being neglected by the Frasncophones. But most Francophones are as impoverished as most Asnglophones.
And Francophones who have been hit by Boko Haram in the country’s far north find it alarming that they are being blamed for marginalization when their own situation seems to be worse off.
Thousands have been killed while hundreds of thousands there have fled their homes. Many schools remain shut and hundreds of people kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists remain missing.
Observers argue that Cameroon, like most African countries, suffers from poor leadership and poverty is just as biting everywhere as it is in the Anglophone region.
Below are some of the pictures already on the social media.
