The devastating losses of the Anglophone Crisis in Cameroon have led Karine to believe they are well past the point of no return. "At this point, living together with the French Cameroon part of Cameroon, will not be possible... It will just be another ticking time bomb because we will never be able to get over the things have been done to us."
"Seeing dead bodies littered here and there... nobody should go through that, for nothing! Because I think this is a senseless war. It is a war that we do not deserve. People have had to go into the forest and live there. Some had to run away to Nigeria, where today they are still living the forest. "
Karine wishes the United Nations, international community and African Union to intervene in this crisis. "It is time to arrive and to say that human life matters, the lives of the people of Southern Cameroon matter."
