BBC tried to explain the crisis in Cameroon, but missed the point.

The British station did not blame the United Kingdom for the chaos they wreaked in Africa, but painted terribly impoverished French speaking Cameroonians, many of whom are being bombed by Boko Haram in the north or are victims of the brutal regime of President Paul Biya as well off.

Today News Africa’s Simon Ateba, who was born in French speaking Cameroon, visited the dilapidated area in 2015 and was arrested by Cameroonian soldiers and accused of being a spy for Boko Haram.

He was detained in atrocious conditions until protesters began to raise their voices.

In a country where one man with a few corrupt officials has been in power for over 35 years, there seems to be no hope in sight for all Cameroonians now stuck in squalor and hopelessness.
