Lockdown and be shutdown: Ekema warns business owners in a nervy Buea

Published

on

The lord mayor of Buea municipality Ekema Patrick Esunge has called on the business owners, transporters and denizens of the municipality to go about their normal activities and shun calls for lockdown from “unknown men”

The Lord Mayor made the call through a communiqué today 4th April 2019 after his municipality was heavily affected by the controversial 10 days lockdown imposed by gun men fighting for the restoration of their statehood called Ambazonia

In a communiqué issued today April 4th 2019, the landlord of Buea municipality seem to be using both hard and soft powers, calling on denizens to ignore the call while  waning business owners of the town to remain open or risk having their businesses shutdown for 30 days

The latest threat from a mayor who historically sealed over 800 shops and businesses last year for respecting ghost town left many confused as armed separatists are promising dire consequences should any one violate the ban

Critics of the mayor say he is only fueling tension in the town and putting his own people at risk given the erratic nature of the fighters and their previous history of enforcing their rule.

His supporters however say the move is needed to reign order in the town and take back control from increasingly authoritarian armed groups

Ambazonian armed groups had declared a 10 days lockdown in Fako to frustrate the organization of the Lime Festival of Arts and Culture FESTAC 2019 which begins from the 6-13 of April 2019

The ten days lock down have been heavily criticized by the population and right activists

While there were gunshots in Mile 16, Muea and Mile 17 within the past 24 hours halting activities within the Buea municipality, the municipality of Limbe which happens to be the host of the cultural festival has largely remain calm as denizens there go about their daily activities.

It remains to be seen how the business owners will react to the mayor’s latest move

But speaking on the program inside on equinoxe television, the revered Cardinal said 69% of Anglophones favor “outright independence”

Tumi who is a known federalist said their survey which was carried ahead of a similar dialogue of their own  said even though secessionists was not on the question paper, many Anglophone opted for outright secession in their survey

The shocking statistics from the ma of God among other painful proposals contained in a 400 pages document will constitute some of the proposals government will have to deal it ahead of the talks

Kumba government delegate copies bad example

Published

on

Kumba government delegate, Nkelle Ngoh Victor wakes up from sleep, seals shops at the Kumba Main market. He says the decision is to punish the traders for respecting a lock down imposed by separatist fighters.

The traders are to pay 25000f cfa each to gain access to their shops. The action of the heavily armed government delegate who looks tired comes amidst a one week lockdown observed across the entire Anglophone regions which has hampered back to school efforts.

Separatists had called  for one week lockdown to protest the sentencing of their leaders Sissikou and Co and to frustrate back to school efforts by government and pro school activists

The move by the Government delegate of the Kumba Ciry council is not new within the context of the Anglophone crisis

The government Delegate of Bamenda City Council and the combative mayor of Buea have all employed similar tactics in the past but failed to change course on the field

Mayor Ekema historically sealed more than 800 shops in his city, seized hundreds of thousands and forced businesses to sign undertaking promising to defy ghost towns and lockdowns

His efforts have failed to resonate across his municipality, with many in the town still respecting the separatists imposed ghost towns much to the shagrin of the politicians

In a leaked video which is making rounds on social media this evening 27th April 2019, the SDF leader Ni John Fru Ndi has rejected the key demand put forth by the armed civilian fighters who kidnapped him briefly earlier during the day

Contrary to reports from party sources and Amba activists that the fighters only had a brief and friendly chat with the veteran politician, the armed civilians could be clearly heard in one of the videos telling the politician that he has been kidnapped because he was walking with politicians

The fighters then went ahead to demand that the party boss recall all his MPS and senators from Yaoundé, a request the chairman who looked comfortable immediately rejected while in captivity .

“I cannot call them back,” he said before one of the fighters couldn’t be heard asking “why”

After drinking from a locally made cup, the chairman says he needs a platform to talk to Biya reason why he can’t call the party lawmakers home.
He cited Hon. Wirba, the runaway SDF MP for Jakiri who left the country after defiling parliamentary rules to advance the course of the Anglophones in the lower house.

NI John Fru Ndi reminded the fighters that Wirba whom they so endear started talking at the parliament hence, he cannot recall the lawmakers.
