The publication released over the weekend is called "Coface's political risks overview; the temperature is rising on the African continent.
"Our political and social fragility index indicates that 10 countries; Angola, Cameroon, Chad, Djibouti, Egypt, Ethiopia, Mauritania, Mozambique, Uganda and the DRC, could be or continue to be shaken by political turmoil", revealed Coface.
Cameroon's presence on the list is backed by the fact that the ongoing insecurity concerns raised by many stakeholders in the country, is affecting investments. The unrest in the North West and South West regions have been a threat to national security for close to three years today. Businesses have closed their doors in most parts of these regions in Cameroon.
In some divisional headquarters, international banks have shut down their offices, rendering many jobless. Armed separatists are fighting to restore the independence of a state they now call, Ambazonia.
According to some experts, constant attacks of Islamist militants group, Boko Haram in the Far North region since 2013, and the high rate of kidnappings in the Adamawa region, might have influenced the index results.
Cameroon's authorities are also concerned about the high rate of insecurity in the East region, following attacks from rebels in the neighbouring country, Central African Republic.
To Coface, the conflicts in most of these African countries have greatly affected investments and trade, leading to slow development rate. Insecurity remains a major setback for development in any country.
