PRETORIA - Cameroon is torn by protests in Anglophone parts of the country after the government shut down internet connections earlier this year.

Last month, authorities ordered the country’s telecommunications providers to shut off internet connections to English-speaking parts of the country.

The internet blackout in the north west and south west of Cameroon came after the government outlawed at least two Anglophone groups and arrested some of their leaders.

The groups had been pushing for so-called Ghost Town actions, in which they urge members of the public to stay at home and shops and businesses to shut.

The aim is to peacefully protest against what activists call the marginalisation of the English-speaking regions by government imposing the French language on their schools and courts.
