The United States government has imposed a visa ban on government officials causing unrest in Southern Cameroon.

U.S. Secretary of State, Antony Blinken in a statement said that travel restrictions have been imposed on officials hindering the peace of Anglophone regions in Cameroon.

Mr Blinken said the travel ban reflects his country’s commitment to ending the lingering violence in the region.

“The United States is committed to ending the continuing violence in Cameroon and to supporting the Cameroonian people.

“Starting today, we are imposing visa restrictions on those involved in undermining peace in the Anglophone regions of Cameroon,” Mr Blinken said in the statement.

Recall that the crisis in the Anglophone regions of Cameroon started when Anglophone Cameroonians took to the streets of Southern Cameroon to protest the domination of French in Anglophone courts and schools.

The situation however escalated in 2017, when Julius Tabe-led secessionist groups, in an attempt to liberate the Southern Cameroon region declared the independence of Ambazonia, which resulted in a crisis that has claimed over 3,000 lives with several other persons displaced.
