Teachers’ strike: the government moves to the phase of repression

Pr Pauline Nalova Lyonga

In a correspondence from Nalova Lyonga to the regional delegates of secondary education, she asks them to send the files of undisciplined people to the services of the governors.

Since last Monday, the OTS movement has launched a new strike in public secondary schools. Faced with a situation that is getting bogged down and where the government is struggling to find valid solutions for teachers, Yaoundé is now moving into a repressive phase. In this momentum, Nalova Lyonga, Minister of Secondary Education has just sent correspondence to the regional delegates of his ministerial department.

During the first term of the 2021-2022 school year, important obligations of civil servants were regularly violated by some staff from the Ministry of Secondary Education. These include: the obligation to serve and to devote themselves to service, the obligation of obedience, the obligation of reserve”, informs the latter in her correspondence dated April 28, 2022. She subsequently proposes disciplinary sanctions.

To remedy this situation, the Prime Minister, Head of Government instructs me to take all the disciplinary measures that the situation imposes, in liaison with the ministerial departments concerned. In view of the foregoing, I have the honor to urge you to send the files of undisciplined persons to the services of the regional governors no later than May 5, 2022, with a view to the organization of the disciplinary councils. “, indicates the continuation of the correspondence of Nalova.

An irresponsible decision, judge several Cameroonians. “Out of inspiration to solve the problems posed by teachers, the government opts for the strong method: what are we going to witness in the coming days which open the period of official examinations? “, asks the lawyer Laurent Dubois Njinkam. “The same method as the one she used at the University of Buea by beating up students and which contributed to aggravating the Anglophone crisis. What do you expect from her? », ask Yannick Raphaël.
