Many are those who expected that by now, the warring parties in the ‘anglophone crisis’ must have engaged in an inclusive national dialogue since none of them is against.
But the delay is becoming a call for concern with accusing fingers pointing left and right.
Analysts argue that both factions are responsible following their separate conditions tabled for the eventual talks.
The government is not for a dialogue with secession on the agenda, while the separatists wants it done on a neutral ground with a third party (UN, AU, ..) and after a ceasefire deal is reached.
The government on her part wants the secessionist fighters to drop down their arms before a dialogue move is initiated, that schools should resume effectively and a return to normal life in the North West and South West regions.
The separatists who doubts the sincerity of the government insist that the military should retreat to their barracks as step one of a possible peace deal.
From outside the conflicting parties, NGO’s and the international community expects the government of Cameroon to initiate the peace deal and an eventual national inclusive dialogue because she is responsible for the socio-political stability in the country.
