Cameroon has disrupted internet connection it its restive North West and South West Anglophone regions, largely affecting socila media sites like Twitter, Facebook and Whatsapp.

There are fears that the internet shutdown is a bid by the Paul Biya led government to stifle dissent  and protests in the English speaking regions. Communities in Cameroon like Buea and Bamenda had noticed slow or inconsistent connections to the popular social media sites in the last 48 hours. This is coming on the heels of the last 93 days internet shutdown which ended in April.

Gwain Colbert Fulai, a civil society activist in the city of Bamenda, confirmed the partal internet disconnection. Gwain said it was surprising that the government could go ahead with another internet shutdown barely a few days after debunking rumours to that effect. “It is ridiculous given that Cameroon has ratified international conventions and optional protocols that promote internet as a human rights in much the same way as water, electricity and education.”

Local activists had been planning to mark Oct. 1 to acknowledge an English-speaking independent state of Southern Cameroons/Ambazonia, a state that isn’t recognized by the Cameroonian government or the United Nations, but had previously existed prior to the country’s unification. On Sep. 30, however, they could no longer easily access the social media/communications platforms. Some local activists have installed a VPN which has unlocked the blocked apps and given him access to the social media.
