Some 26 Young leaders from all 10 regions of Cameroon and political parties have taken part in a three-day training workshop aimed at equipping them with skills on physical and online security as human rights defenders and activists.

The training, organised by Friedrich Ebert Stifung (FES) was hosted in Bano Palace, Douala with supervision from Resident Representative of FES Cameroon and Central Africa, Nina Netzer, and the consultation from the President of the Centre for Human Rights and Democracy in Africa CHRDA, Barrister Agbor Nkongho and Human Rights experts, Dr. Wabi Wilson, Dr. Gatsi Éric, and Dr. Mbianyor Arrey.

The lessons on both kinds of security centered on practical and safe modalities the young leaders could take to better succeed at their goals of leadership such as vigilance with phones, laptops, and other information-sharing devices, planning, and execution of activities within the reality of the political terrain and not the ideal situation that may exist on paper.

The drilling, which brought together selected cohort members from 2012-2020 is happening within the current context of increasing ways to hack into private accounts online and with the possibility of accessed online information translating into physical insecurity.

It is expected that the lessons received here will manifest in better-strategized moves of leadership that threaten human life at its minimum but ascertain change and hope through strategic actions.
