Dozens of ‘noisy’ churches silenced in Cameroon

Government continues crackdown on Pentecostal movement

The government of Cameroon has ordered the closure of dozens of churches in an attempt to put an end to what it considers to be anarchy among some Christian organisations.

The measure, which authorities began to impose on August 23, targets Pentecostal churches, which are not officially recognised.

About 10 churches have had their doors locked in Yaoundé, the capital. In Bamenda, the main town in the northwest, which houses a high proportion of the country’s Christians, some 20 churches have been affected.
