The Ambazonia leadership currently held in detention in Yaounde for close to 14 months now have released a freedom Charter Manifesto spelling out their determination to pursue the independence of their country through a resistance that shall only end with victory.
Entitled “The Ambazonia Freedom Protocol”, the release defines the nature and value of the society that Ambazonia envisions.
In the three-page hand written document, Sisiku Ayuk Tabe Julius and nine of his close aids in detention at the Kondengui Prison in Yaounde take nine solemn commitments as follows:
“We shall pick up and bind together the pieces of our community that have been destroyed by slavery, colonialism and neo- colonialism.
“The leaders acknowledged the fact that the Ambazonia republic has been reduced to nothing but takes the responsibility to rebuilt when the time comes.
They commit to make former Southern Cameroonians today know as Ambazonia to enjoy full independence just as other countries in the world.
The leaders apologized to women for the shameful and dehumanizing manner they have been treated all these while taking a commitment for total respect of women and girls.
They apologized for the marginalization of the minority communities in most societies throughout human history and attest their engagement to total equality and respect without qualification of all individuals.
The interim leaders equally rendered sincere apologies to those who have been maltreated and hurt physically, mentally and emotionally by tribalism and commits to total equality.
Ayuk Tabe Julius and other leaders of the interim government of the Ambazonia mentioned that they are aware of the rich advancement and quality life envisaged by the people of Ambazonia with wisdom from cultural contributions of communities and tribes.
The leadership of Ambazonia in Prison commits to build a society that cultivates peace and harmony through the respect for human rights and equitable sharing of natural resources of the land. They insist to work tirelessly to create avenue for prosperity and wellbeing of all.
They detained leaders equally commit to engage in the Pan African struggle with full resolve to stand in solidarity with all people around the world fighting for dignity against neo colonialism.
Finally, ‘the Ambazonia Freedom Protocol’ document states “we are done being balanced from one colonial chess-board to another and assert unequivocally that going forward for Ambazonia it shall be total independence or resistance forever”
The document signed on the 28th of February 2019 is the first official declaration since the incarceration of the leaders .It comes days after the verdict of Abuja federal High Court that demanded the re extradition of the leaders.
