A pro-separatist group called the 1961 Constitution has charged the government of Cameroon alongside the African football body, CAF, and world football body, FIFA for violating the independence of the Southern Cameroons state aka Ambazonia.
According to the organization, CAF and FIFA violated Southern Cameroons sovereignty by supporting the organization of the CHAN which Group D matches will be played in the South West Region city of Limbe, with Buea to host some of the Group D players.
“The entire territory of the Republic of Ambazonia is an active war zone. Foreign nationals visiting the Republic of Cameroon… should avoid entering the Republic of Ambazonia until members of the 1961 Constitution say it is safe to do so,” the group stated in a January 6th release.
They also said the government of Cameroon had no right to hold the 6th December 2020 Regional Elections in the two English-speaking regions whose sovereignty Ambazonia fighters seek.
“Of recent, the Republic of Cameroon has gone as far as organizing illegal elections on Ambazonia soil and this has been possible with the backing of their proconsuls, enablers, soldiers, and Gendarmes of the brutish military forces that rape, kidnap, behead, and dehumanize our people in many ways,” the 1961 Constitution said.
The group frowned at the Cameroon government’s neglect of some once-viable institutions in Southern Cameroons but which are inexistent today.
“Our house of Chiefs and Fons which were symbols of our cultural heritage were dissolved and today the colonizer continues to divide our people by bringing in two houses of Chiefs and Fons,” the group furthered.
