This year, Moving On, Student's Book 2, a manual used by seventh graders in the English speaking part of Cameroon, has been greatly altered. The editor has inserted a page, with the flag of Ambazonia, promoting this unofficial country created by Cameroonian secessionists who demand the independence of the English speaking regions.
During an unequivocal report shown by CRTV, the public television channel, Jean Ernest Ngalle Bibehe, the minister of secondary education set the records straight.
During the report, he explained that he did not give his consent to this alteration. The minister said that eight educational inspectors working at the ministry of secondary education, an official of the British embassy and two persons at the publishing house took part in the deed.
Jean Ernest Ngalle Bibehe revealed that the educational inspectors were relieved from their duties. He also explained that the schoolbooks chosen for the curriculum will be reviewed every year; not every three years as it used to be.
