Young politician of the Popular Action Party, Fabrice Lena has sent a note of warning to the Government regarding purported agitations of installing Frank Biya to take over from the Head of State.
He warns that Cameroon is in a volatile situation, waiting for the smallest trigger for the country to disintegrate.
Read his statement below:-
“Frankist Movement is path towards Civil War in East Cameroon and possible Separation of Southern Cameroons.
Cameroon is in a volatile situation. Mr Biya is incapacitated but wining time.This is common in former French colonies-absentee president. Ngoh Ngoh is doing all the work through High Instructions from the old, tired and weary man. It is clear that transition eminent and France is as usual with a plan, testing the waters with the Frankist Movement. This is accompanied by Electoral fraud mechanisms against fragmented opposition.
At the end, they will be resentment, anguish and bitterness from the Citizens of East Cameroon. This will be happening when Southern Cameroons are intensifying Separatist activities, which may possibly push all appointed administrators away.
The Frankist Movement is dynastification of democracy, unconstitutional and unacceptable. Frank Biya is not Senate President or vice, he is not a uniform officer or a high ranking CPDM. He is less of a Politician and so unpopular amongst East Cameroonians.
He is an introvert. The culture of imposing pupputs is typical of former French Colonies. This is why during transition or Elections, there is always choas and violence. The people can’t be deceived anymore. Mr Biya is unable to put the country on the right track before passing on. He is bound by the chains of Political Condition from the Super Culture Master to succumb to their plans.
Replacing father by son is killing the integrity of democracy and the very essence of our existence as a nation. This will spark more rebellions and thus choas.
Imposing Frank Biya, shows that East Cameroon is not capable of Constitutional Democracy. This will also affirm the allegation that the Francophone dominated and power centred regime want to keep the people Southern Cameroons as an annexed territory.
To continue with the scheme of assimilation that Mr Biya confessed of in 2018. At this juncture, with choas in Etoudi,the chances of separation is greater and international support will also increase. A referendum at this point will be necessary on the question of separation.
It will pass with more than 90% irrespective of rigging mechanisms. France opposition to the referendum will only increase violence, and acceptance will leave her in a state of confusion as in Chad now.
The option of a civil war is one that Southern Cameroonians who are interested in preserving a united Cameroon would consider supporting. The initiative for the civil war may come from the north and find ready support among West Cameroonians who are hesitant about separation. The West region is likely to join and part of littoral is also likely to be on board. As many northern activists already indicate, Mr. Frank Biya will not be accepted by the north.
There is therefore a basis for 6-7 regions to unite in a civil war project aimed at freeing the country from a parasitic alliance between France and a certain political clique. This political class would be a continuation of the Biya regime that has failed to solve the Anglophone Crisis and failed to bring development to the northern regions.
The parasites are also determined to perpetuate a one-party-like system that rejects democracy and constitutional rule. If the French and the clique fall into this trap, then people will be forced to choose between separation of Southern Cameroons from United Cameroon and a civil war to dislodge the France-Afrique political order.
The north has only one choice and it is civil war but support from Southern Cameroons makes such a project a foregone conclusion even if it will lead to a decade or two of instability. No incantantions of exceptional circumstances will be tolerated in Cameroon. The era of Political Complacency is over. The regime and their first partner must admit that they have limited cards on the table and must take precautions.
At this point, not even a fake Anglophone president to blindfold the people can work. The only option that can push back the possible Separation of Southern Cameroons is a return to a new Federal System with adaptation to realities of the present Cameroon. This will work well and preserve territorial integrity especially without Mr Biya or a Biya at Etoudi.
This process must be in strict compliance with the constitution. Any further violation is road to choas. The constitution as bad as it is, can save us from chaos. Meanwhile, question of form of state is the only way to gain back Southern Cameroons. See example of peaceful transition in Tanzania. Let’s also copy good culture”
