[:fr]The two English speaking Regions of Cameroon are currently characterized by a number of security issues which are pushing authorities to order curfews with the most recent one imposed during the just ended youth day period.

Inhabitants of the concerned Regions take the restrictions differently. Some think it reduces insecurity, “the orders passed by the authorities help reduce the insecurity in the Northwest and Southwest Regions, considering the fact that most criminal activities take place at night” a Bamenda resident said.

Cameroon News Today-CNT, got in touch with a youngster in Kumbo who is a motorbike rider. He accepted to comment on basis of anonymity.  “Business is not moving. Some of us motobikers who have to come back from school before we start business, face many difficulties when restrictions like curfews come up. This is because at times we even work till 10pm and it equally counts for other businesses” the youngster said.

Another observer of the situation took the case of travel agencies to illustrate the positive impacts of the curfews. He said Departure time for journeys becomes earlier for buses that used to leave very late at night, sometimes at 11pm.

It is worth noting that one of the recent curfews was ordered on 10 February by the Governor of the Northwest, restricting movement between 8pm and 6am in the Region.[:en]The two English speaking Regions of Cameroon are currently characterized by a number of security issues which are pushing authorities to order curfews with the most recent one imposed during the just ended youth day period.
