Cameroon government launches campaign against social media

The government of Cameroon has launched a campaign to highlight the ills of social media and need for social regulation in other to preserve the image of Cameroon. It comes after the several citizens has been taking to social media platforms to misinterprets and deform facts among others over certain issues revolving in Cameroon.

Last month after a deadly train derailed at Yaounde living at least 80 people dead with 600 injured, social media users in Cameroon criticized President Paul Biya for what they presumed as his unconcerned attitude towards the tragic accident after he didn’t return immediately from Switzerland where he had gone for a meeting.

After a parliament meeting was held on Monday, the Cameroon government in a statement confirmed that the country is committed to combat social media.
‘The State of Cameroon is resolutely committed to the fight against social media so as to preserve the image of the country. Social media is increasingly becoming a rallying point for those who want a change at the helm of the state.’

It means this nonchalant attitude of leaders towards tragedy is an African thing
I remember when bomb went off in Nyanya,ours truly zoomed off to a rally on Kano.He danced, he smiled ,he laughed.He forgot about Nyanya,forgot about what it means is that he has failed his people
Then this government came in, but in their different style.Recession hits the people,ours new truly is globetrotting. He forgot his people, he forgot his responsibilities and would rather reply critisms from foreign media than our own media
Social media has come to stay regardless of the ills bedeviling it
