Cameroon separatists abduct ruling party senator

A senator from Cameroon’s ruling party has been kidnapped in an English-speaking region where separatist groups have declared independence, reports said.

Elizabeth Regina Mundi was abducted on Saturday along with her driver in the north-western town of Bamenda, local officials are quoted as saying

 

.
An official said “that two wings of the separatist Ambazonian Defence Forces, ADF, had said they carried out the abduction.”

A video has surfaced on social media showing the senator reading a statement calling for the independence of the Ambazonia republic.

Anglophone activists say the country’s French-speaking majority is marginalising the English-speaking minority.
