Rights activist and journalist, Solomon Amabo has rubbished the special status, decentralization and other methods government is using to attempt to resolve the Anglophone Crisis.
In a writeup, Amabo notes that the “identity crisis” in Cameroon’s Anglophone regions is soon getting out of hand. To him, that notwithstanding, justice will prevail in the end.
Read full write up here: I hear some dishonest people saying that they should “give Anglophones,’’ Federation citing some lame reasons. I was wondering whether Southern Cameroonians/Ambazonians are now handicapped to a point where they just have to “give’’ them something… Special Status whatever that means. It is certain that some still think, Mr Biya and his parliament and the regime apparatchiks would sit and concoct anything to ram down the throats of a people they have killed and dehumanized and worse, they deny the genocide…
Please let Yaounde know; you can cook anything, sign all kinds of decrees, hold emergency or extraordinary sessions of their parliament, bribe people to turn against their own… You can even translate the Bible into one of the Southern Cameroons/Ambazonian local languages…Mopwke or Mungaka….nothing would change.
The fight for justice would continue. The fight for freedoms for the people of Southern Cameroons/Ambazonians would continue. Until Yaoundé would come down their high horse and talk. Engage in a negotiated settlement in the presence of third parties. Yes… Yaounde has proven that they are very dishonest and since 1961 tried to annex us and failed and now they want to extinct the people. Based on that, there would be no second chance for anything to be cooked up and dished out to the people who are not handicapped but know what they want.
To those thinking that those who stand for justice are mad or their desires would never materialize, they should think again. This matter is the last battle. Our future generations’ would have to know that we stood for. Justice, freedoms and the desire to have a place we call our home.
This is an identity crisis and a territorial dispute. It is not about speaking French and English like Moliere or Shakespeare. It is not about “Advance or Ordinary Level Decentralizing’’. It is about the existence of a people who are being extinct and have a duty to resist.
To those Southern Cameroonians who are there fighting to try to bring down the efforts in the fight against injustice, the people still love you. The efforts you make in trying to bring down the liberation struggle gives the people strength to move on. At the end, justice would take its course and you would be emancipated alongside the Yaounde junta.
So, those talking about Special Status, Bilingualism, Decentralization…..its your right to talk. But you are wasting your time and efforts and the same Yaoundé you try to speak for would devour you at some point. The little you can do is to advice Yaoundé to leave the empty pride and arrogance which Southern Cameroonians/Ambazonians now give a damn to, and engage in a negotiated settlement.
To those on GZ, keep faith, hold the fort. Nothing good come easy. We saw how even Jesus who came to assist us carry our worldly burden was badly beaten. The people would get there despite the odds. At your spare time, offer prayers to those who are losing steam and focus and a missing the road to go back on track. Better stand for something than nothing..
We left Misselele and are now moving towards Tiko Round about. See you in Buea
The Struggle continues….
