Concerns over continued internet block in Cameroon

The Mo Ibrahim Foundation has expressed concerns over continued internet censorship in Cameroon. The Cameroonian government cut off access to the internet in two English-speaking regions of the country in late January 2017, in an attempt to quell protests taking place in those areas. The internet blockade is still in place, something which the Mo Ibrahim Foundation says is damaging the regions' economy and its residents' access to vital educational and health information. The foundation has urged the Cameroonian government to lift its blockade of the internet, warning that continued censorship could have a potentially devastating impact on citizens' lives.
