Kamto’s bombshell declaration on Equinoxe risk angering Ambazonians

Published

on

The MRC leader says he will never accept a plan to partition Cameroon and neither will he accept a two state federation but he remains open for inclusive dialogue to find the best federal system of government for the country

He was speaking today December 1st 2019 on Equinoxe TV just days after he declared his party will not take part in February 2020 municipal and legislative elections

Kamto used the opportunity to talk about wide range of political issues in the country, reaffirming his party’s decision to boycot next year’s election and reiterating why the party made the decision

He also went after government for keeping his VP In prison and vow to continue his fight for political reforms in the country

But his statement on Anglophone crisis will distance the opposition kingpin from Anglophone voters, most of whom wants outright independence or two state federation  according to polls

Some Anglophones have been calling for restoration of their statehood while others want a return to two state  federation to resolve the three years crisis which has killed more than 3000 persons and displaced millions according to right groups

A five day grand national dialogue called by government has failed to appease the fighters who insist negotiations must take place on neutral ground in the presence of a third party.

Many Anglophones had welcomed the decision by the MRC leader to boycot the elections for 2020, arguing the conditions aren’t right for the polls given the increasing fighting in the two regions between armed fighters and country’s military

Governmemt has however insisted that the national dialogue was first and last and even though there are rumors of potential postponement of the polls, the date still remains February 2020 despite massive calls at home and abroad to postpone the elections which were due since 2018.

Lebialem: military employ Amba tactics

Published

on

Soldiers are now blocking roads in M’muock Fosimondi and demanding money from commuters, Mimi Mefor reprted

“I am writing to you from M’muock Fosimondi in the Lebialem Division. I have been hearing of the Amba boys blocking roads as defensive tactic but now in our area, it is the military that are doing so,” the local says.

The concerned local adds that: “There are two roads one can use to enter or exit the village to the nearby town of Dschang, one which passes through the Military post. There, the military block the other entry because they want all bikes and vehicles to pass through their post where they will forcefully collect the sum of FCFA 2,000 to FCFA10, 000 from each driver. Nobody have a voice because once you say a word, you’re an Amba boy.”

Lebialem is one of the hardest hit areas of the Anglophone crisis. Armed civilian  groups known as Red dragons under the command of Ambazonian field marshal controls most parts of the division, forcing local administrators to operate from neighboring Dschang in the west region of the country which borders the division

The red Dragons are seen as one of the most potent ground fighters in the two English speaking regions of the country.

[Must Read] Abdul Karim weeps for Southern Cameroon in a tear-dropping letter

Published

on

In an open letter addressed to SOUTHERN Cameroonians, Muslim scholar and government critic Abdul Karim weeps for the fate of the revolution, calls on its leaders to be more united against a common enemy and to shun hate, backstabbing and infighting amongst their ranks

he writes

Dear Southern Cameroonians, We have grappled the enemy hard and well; scored points beyond count. Yet ego, pride, hate, and greed are ripping us off our spoils of war; of our victory and gains.

Contemporary, we fight ourselves. We have created a circle of hate and dwell therein. We threaten ourselves with criminal charges, we tell lies about ourselves to the public, we sabotage genuine efforts, blackmail our very selves, we expose ourselves ruthlessly and shamelessly? come on!
—–How could a #Catholic Christian rejoice upon the demise of a #Protestant? (Is Jesus Christ not the center of belief?——
In the same light, Southern Cameroons should shield our hate and guard our tongues/modesty. I may disagree with one of us but my personal perception(s) about that individual should not overshadow the common position(liberation of Fatherland).

Note! Hate does the following to you.
1. Add your difficulties
2. Multiply your problems
3. Subtract your energy
4. Divide your effectivity.

please tell me who can thrive with those four in play? Remember hate and ego do more harm to the vessel that carries them than to the object on which they are being poured.

My candid advice: Please be careful what you do unto others. I think the Gospel according to Matthew captures it well;
“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, `Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye”. -Matthew 7:1-5

Instead of the above horrible and ugly demeanor, we should focus on prepping for the inevitable negotiations with LRC. We need one another more than ever.

Dear comrades,
The winner is not just the one who has truth or one who makes the case. The winner is necessarily one who is both competent and have the ability to negotiate. Negotiation is the use of INFORMATION and POWER respectively to affect behavior within a “web of tension”. Please, let’s all think about this broad definition by Herb Cohen and realize how bad we are doing.

Quit hating ourselves Southern Cameroonians. What the hell is wrong with us? Na Curse?

Abdulkarim Ali.
