The Southern Cameroon agitation, otherwise known as Anglophone crisis or Ambazonia crisis is a culmination of perceived marginalisation and suppression of the English-speaking Cameroonians. The problem forms part of the colonial hangover resulting from the partitioning of Africa by some European powers. Essentially, the paper is a longitudinal study pivoted on historical design and relied on secondary sources of data which were analysed textually. Findings show that the Reunification of Francophone Cameroon with the Anglophone parts amounted to a marriage of unequal and unwilling partners‟ underscored by „domination‟ and „subterfuge‟ spanning almost six decades. It is imperative for the African Union, Economic Community of Central African States, United Nations and international organisations of allied mandates to take more than a passing interest in this issue with the intent of effectively playing mediatory roles. Other recommendations are capable of attenuating or addressing the crisis
