The Mandela Center International, an international NGO specialized in consultative status with the United Nations has demanded the immediate resignation of the Chairperson of the Cameroon Human Rights Commission (CHRC) Professor James Mouangue Kobila, from his duties for allegedly breaching of human rights ethics.

According to an official release from the said NGO, Mouangue Kobila is reported to have sexually harassed, threatened, blackmailed and defamed the alleged victim, Mrs. Nkouete Messiah Judith Esp√©rance Epouse Kouobou Tsemo, translator-interpreter, executive at the CHRC and Chief of the President’s cabinet.

As a consequence of his act, the Mandela Center International and its international partners have decided to suspend all collaboration with the national human rights institution until the withdrawal of its current president.

They also reminded the Cameroon government of its obligations to respect, protect and implement the rights of all Cameroonians to dignity, without any restrictions.

sor James Mouangue Kobila was appointed Chairperson of the CHRC in February 2021 by President Paul Biya.
