From a haven to ravisher of Human rights. The Story of Cameroon

Buea, Cameroon Investigative Reporting February 27 @ 1:31pm

Cameroon, once a harbinger of peace in the troubled Central African sub-region is now at the brinks of civil war, a phenomenon that has engulfed much of African states since independence. Cameroon’s once cherished peace is at risk. Yes, Cameroon has never been the most peaceful country in Africa. The Central African state has for sure never top the ranking of Human rights classification in the continent. But little over nine years ago, Cameroon was classified among the most peaceful and amenable country which did not fail to embrace refugees, give out aid to needy countries and resolve its international disputes by extending an “olive branch”. Its human right record was passably encouraging. Today, the story is different, tear-dropping.
