I don't know if Belgium was colonised by Germany, then shared into a trusteeship to Britain and France.

The linguistic division is only the tip of the colonial relic of the British and French influence in the country.

There many books to express how this happened but the current civil war in the English speaking parts of the country is an example of the decades of failure and strife caused by these actions.

Unless Belgium segregates systematically the people speaking a different language ( which expresses different ideals, histories and culture), unless Belgium currently has a war with people dying, moving out of homes, losing lives and jobs, and security, unless this is what is happening in Belgium, then no, this division is not similar to that in Cameroon.
