Supporters of the Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement plan rally in Bafoussam July 20; heightened security measures and traffic disruptions expected

TIMEFRAME expected from 7/18/2019, 12:00 AM until 7/22/2019, 11:59 PM (Africa/Douala). COUNTRY/REGION Bafoussam


Supporters of the Cameroon People's Democratic Movement (CPDM) called for a rally in Bafoussam on Saturday, July 20, to express support for President Paul Biya and call for unity in face of recent protests held by opposition parties.

The exact times and locations of the rally were not immediately reported. An increased security presence and localized traffic disruptions are to be anticipated around demonstration sites. Heightened political tensions are to be expected over the coming weeks.


Tensions between the country's minority English-speaking community and the national authorities are high in the Northwest and Southwest regions amid an ongoing separatist movement.


Individuals in Cameroon are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests or large gatherings due to the risk of associated violence, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
