Over the last few hours, Tassang Wilfred; The Secretary General of the Cameroon Teachers Trade Union, CATTU, granted an interview with award winning journalist; Nfor Hanson Nchanji, on Equinoxe TV where he revealed that following the last meeting the administrators of the Teacher’s Trade Union held this May, they concluded that they would not call off the strike until at least one of the major points they raised to the government through the prime minister; Philemon Yang, was fulfilled.
He mentioned that there were two major points raised:
That Anglophone teachers should teach Anglophone students, and Francophone teachers should teach Francophone students. Francophone teachers should not teach Anglophone students subjects order than French. Likewise, Anglophone teachers should not be assigned to teach Francophone students subjects order than English Language.
He mentioned that Federalism is the solution to most of the problems, but they are aware that it cannot happen now, what can indeed happen now is the reforms they mentioned, and if the reforms are not fulfilled the strike will not be called off.
