Cameroon blocks social media access in restive English-speaking regions

Reports indicate that social media access has been cut in Cameroon’s English-speaking regions. This is contrary to a government communication that said no such action was to be taken.

This becomes the second blackout this year even though it is only limited to social media platforms like Twitter, Whatsapp and Facebook.

The earlier one was a total blackout in the Anglophone regions. It was only lifted in April 2017 after over three months. The reason for the earlier blackout was because of claims by government that social media was actively being used to spread false information.

The North West and South West regions of the central African country have planned to celebrate a separate independent day on October 1 this year. There has been a huge military deployment in the respective regions.

A recent report said internet blackouts on the continent cost governments millions of dollars. Most businesses in the region were hampered by the government’s move to cut internet following the anglophone protests.

The internet shutdown drew condemnation all over the world, with many using the Twitter hashtag #BringBackOurInternet. At the time, the blackout affected civil servants, with the government instructing banks to pay them manually since ATMs services were also suspended.

Protests were largely against discrimination by the country’s Francophone majority. Over 100 people were arrested and one person killed in November 2016 in the north-western town of Bamenda, following days of violent protests over the alleged discrimination against minority English-speaking people.

French is spoken in eight of Cameroon’s 10 regions and English in the north-western and south-western regions. The anglophone regions are calling for authorities to stop imposing French on their educational and legal systems.

Somalia hosts Turkey’s largest overseas military base

Somali and Turkish officials on Saturday officially opened a military training base in the Somali capital, Mogadishu.

The facility is Turkey’s largest overseas military training facility. Somalia’s Prime Minister, Hassan Ali Khyare, was joined by the Turkish army chief, General Hulusi Akar and other top officials for the ceremony.

Turkey is seen as a major security and development ally of the Somali people. President Erdogan last year opened the country’s new embassy also in Mogadishu.

The Horn of Africa region given its strategic location is a choice location for military bases by foreign powers. Neighboring Djibouti for instance hosts bases for China, France and Japan.

In July last year, the Somali government ordered the shut down of organizations linked to Fetullah Gulen – the supposed mastermind of a failed coup in Turkey. There were also nationwide protests held in support of Erdogan’s government.

The relations between Turkey and Somalia date back to the Ottoman Empire when Somalia had extensive relations with the Sultan Selim, during his rule in 1517.
