ENSET Bambili: Teachers' Trade Unions, Parents, Teachers, Politicians, Civil Society to Stage Endless Strike

The recruitment of Anglophone candidates into the Higher Technical Teachers' Training College commonly known by its French acroynm as ENSET is generating heat among English Speaking Cameroonians. Classified sources hinted that a mighty storm is gathering momentum ahead an endless strike against obnoxious plans by the Minister of Higher Education Prof. Jacque Fame Ndongo to frustrate the Anglo-saxon sub system of education. According to the hint Anglophones are worried that Prof. Jacque Fame Ndongo has transformed the Bambili Higher Technical Teachers' Training College into a branch of ENSET Douala. Our informant also revealed that the Anglophone community is aghast that majority of the lectures are in French and not English.
The majority of the student teachers according to what we gathered at ENSET are Francophones which to many is not helping in anyway to solve the Anglophone problem of the lack of a Higher Technical Teachers' Training College rocking the Anglophone technical schools. It should be recalled that ENSET Bambili was created following pressure from the Cameroon Teachers Trade Union-CATTU with the support of some key Anglophone politicians. These litany of problems we have been informed has led to the development of the intention to take to the streets. Teachers Association of Cameroon-TAC and Cameroon Teachers Trade Union-CATTU have been very bitter at the interferrances. Yet blames have been aportioned to Senator Achidi Achu Simon and Senator Peter Mafany Musonge for blocking plans by the representatives of the people to address a memo to the Head of state reasons why many say the only anwser is to take to the street.
