“(Business in Cameroon) - Information circulating on social media for some time now claim that the ministry of post and telecommunication, plans to cut internet access in the southwestern and northwestern regions of Cameroon in the next few days. The ministry of post and telecommunication categorically refutes those allegations and vigorously denounces to the national and international public, the abuses and manipulations of some irresponsible social media users”, reads a statement signed on September 27, 2017 by the minister of post and telecommunications, Minette Libom Li Likeng.

According to posts on Facebook and WhatsApp, the false claims come as leaders of separatists groups, in the two English-speaking regions of Cameroon, are said to be preparing to hold a ceremony to proclaim their independence on October 1, 2017, today.

Indeed, October 1st marks the 56th anniversary of the reunification of the Anglophone and francophone parts of Cameroon after a referendum held under the leadership of the international community.

Those responsible of the posts certainly base their claims on previous internet cuts experienced, between January 17 and April 20, 2017, when the separatists’ claims became more pressurizing.
