Cameroon bans 'opposition' English-language TV channel

  |   Ghana News / World News / Nigeria News

Cameroon has banned people from watching a popular television station that says it represents the interests of the English-speaking population. Cable TV providers have been told they will be sanctioned if they do not stop broadcasting the South Africa-based channel, SCBC.

But content can still be viewed online. There have been months of protests by Cameroon's Anglophone population against what they say is discrimination by the Francophone majority. Some activists are accused of campaigning for a separate country.

SCBC, or the Southern Cameroons Broadcasting Corporation, airs programmes about the history and culture of the Anglophone region, as well as interviews with exiled lawyers and documentaries about human rights abuses in Cameroon, a BBC correspondent says.
