Mancho Bibixy and other initiators of the coffin Revolution have described anti back-to-school campaign as political, urging pro independence fighters not to heed the manipulation.
In an audio message released Thursday July 18, 2019, the jailed Ambazonia activists said the hitherto objective of school boycott has been attained.
“We had moved from county to county to disrupt classes, the purpose was to make our problem known to the world. We have succeeded to achieve that goal,” Mancho said.
According to Mancho and Co, it is time to take a different approach. “We have to change strategy of the struggle.”
They explained how the government of Cameroon is using the current situation to her advantage. “La Republic has changed tactics too, they are building Anglophone schools and attracting our kids and all the financial benefits go to them,” they said.
“Some of our jailed brothers are not in support of back to school campaign because they are in prison. But that is not the way out.” added the detainees.
Message to fighters on the ground
The members of the Coffin Revolution movement have three key messages to Ambazonian fighters in the restive North West and South West Regions.
“I want restorationists to know that we are fighting for our children and generation to come,” they said.
“Play a key role in guaranteeing a hitch free back to school for the kids who will run companies, institutions and giant corporations in our communities tomorrow. This will also mount pressure on the Cameroon Government to withdraw forces because the international community has its eyes on them.”
“I challenge you to haunt all the fake Amba disrupting classes and bring them to book,” he said.
Mancho debunks corruption allegations
In the audio message, the incarcerated Ambazonia activists denied claims that they received money or favour to launch a back to school crusade.
“It is not the first time we are being accused. Remember it was rumoured in December that a huge sum was found under my bed, it all turned out to be a lie,” Mancho said.
“I maintain that I have not been bought over and I remain fearless,” Mancho revealed.
The coffin Revolution leaders have said security is not a problem and that: “it’s time to get to work, work in unity and not in disunity” in ensuring that kids go to to school come September 2019.
