Speaking at the party’s headquarters in Yaounde during a press confab, Sihm said CRM will also boycott upcoming regional elections to sympathize with victims of the Anglophone crisis in the North West and South West regions of Cameroon.
Since Kamto’s arrest on January 28, dozens of his party faithfuls have been arrested by security forces.
