In his opening remark, he pointed out that within three months, the Commission will organise a colloquium on hate speech and xenophobia, carry out awareness-raising campaigns against the scourge in all the Regions of the country, establish strategic partnership with stakeholders working on the issue and remind the public on the regulations penalising the phenomenon.

H.E Peter MAFANY MUSONGE later answered questions from journalists relating to what the Commission has done since its creation four years ago, how the campaign will be carried out concretely on the field and how he intends to interact with other groups in this fight among others.

Present at the press conference were the Vice President, Mr OUMAROU DJIKA, the members of the Commission, the Secretary General, Dr. CHI ASAFOR Cornelius and some guests who included the Minister Delegate at the Ministry of Justice, Jean De Dieu MOMO and the Secretary General in the Ministry of Communication, Professor Felix ZOGO.
