Cardinal Christian Tumi is a known critic of the Cameroon government, yet he was one of those chosen by the regime to lead a “peace caravan” to the West African country’s troubled Anglophone regions.
As Africa enters a new year, Church leaders hope many of the problems of 2019 can be put behind them.
Catholic prelates are leading two “peace caravans” to inform the people of Cameroon’s two English-speaking regions of the resolutions of the Oct. 29-Nov.4 “Major National Dialogue” aimed at ending a secessionist rebellion in the country.
Every Christian is a “rebel against evil,” according to Cameroon’s lone cardinal. Speaking during a program on Cameroonian state television, Cardinal Christian Tumi also called on Christians to become more involved in politics.
A survey conducted by religious leaders ahead of Cameroon’s Sept. 30- Oct. 4 “Major National Dialogue” has indicated the severity of the nation’s Anglophone crisis, according to the country’s sole Catholic cardinal.
An upcoming “major national dialogue” in Cameroon has been hailed as a positive step by the country’s only Catholic cardinal.
