    “Solidarity march must hold” SDF Littoral regional chairman respond to DO of Douala 1

    The Littoral regional chairman of Cameroon’s main opposition party, the Social Democratic Front (SDF), Hon. Jean Michel Nintcheu, has waved the decision of the Divisional Officer for Douala 1 Tchakui Noundie Jean-Marie, banning a solidarity march organised by his party, schedule for Saturday 21 October 2017.

    Speaking to reporters upon receiving news of the ban, Hon. Jean Michel described the DO’s decision as inconsequential, and reiterated that the march must hold on Saturday.

    “We are preparing ahead of our event on Saturday October 21 with peace of mind, we have invested a lot to make a U-turn at this point. It is a shame, why didn’t he wait for the march to take place first.” Hon. Jean Michel told reporters.

    The Divisional officer of Douala 1 prohibited the holding of the solidarity march in a press release made public on Thursday 19 October, stating that the march posed as a threat to public peace and order within his municipality. 

    The SDF solidarity march was suppose to be in support of the population of the Northwest and Southwest Regions following what has now been termed the Anglophone Crisis.

    Few days ago, the Cameroon People’s Party (CPP) of Edith Kahbang Walla, issued a statement highlighting the party’s interest to join the SDF party in the grand meeting and solidarity walk, inorder to ensure the respect of the constitutional rights and fundamental freedoms of Cameroon's citizens, political parties and civil society.

    Saturday’s march was suppose to be the first ever SDF party public rally to be approved by authorities to be held in Douala. 
    Authorisation to hold the rally in Douala was issued to the SDF Littoral Chairman Hon. Nintcheu on October 12 by the DO of Douala 1, who has now made a U-turn in his decision.
