Anglophone Marginalization:  "Cameroon is one and indivisible"- The catch phrases of Francophones
 "Cameroon is one and indivisible" "We must stay together as one" "Our national unity is very dear to us" These are the catch phrases you would hear each time the people of the former Southern Cameroons raise an issue that irks them and contemplate a different form of political existence. Oh yes at such moments our togetherness tends to make sense like it never has before.

In the past few weeks the people of the North West and South West regions of Cameroon, in an unarmed and nonviolence protest against the trampling upon their rights, have been under fire and blood from the hands of the very forces that are supposed to protect them. Beating, looting, rape, killing and all forms of humiliation have been meted on these people. Merciless humiliation of both the children parents and the the very noble ones and mentors of our communities (Teachers and lawyers) atrocities of the highest order have been the main stay of these other citizens simply because they by their constitutional rights ask to be heard, seek to preserve their rights which are under threat. And because their cry is only a refrain of an age old recurrent chorus to which the powers that be refuse to pay attention, they seek another form of political existence that will challenge the current state of the union.

 

Interestingly, in the Cameroon that is said to be one and indivisible, the rest of the country the former East Cameroon are rather unsympathetically tranquil and unconcerned. Yes and that I guess is how Cameroon is one and indivisible. As the heat of fire mounts and the streams of blood flow in these areas, perfect calm and indifference reigns in the former East Cameroon with not even a single region, or group of people to raise a finger to overtly say "This is not Fair" No, folks this attitude is the very proof that Cameroon could be one now but very divisible. It is the very attitude that lays the fissures in the so much heralded national unity. This attitude clearly tells us that there are issues that are the businesses of those referred to as Anglophones and that do not concern the rest of the country. Otherwise I need our brothers East of the Mongo who claim that we are one to tell me what their take is on the current atrocities in the former Southern Cameroon and what they have done about it. they are quick to say no we should not fight to separate, we should rather fight to change the regime. Yet they sit as spectators and watch the former Southern Cameroonians humiliated and even applaud, because we are one and indivisible.

My Challenge to the Francophones:

I challenge our former East Cameroon brothers, if brothers they are, to prove to us that they mean it when they say Cameroon is one and indivisible or tell us what is wrong with the requests of the Common Law Lawyers and Anglophone Teachers syndicates.

I challenge all the leaders of political parties who claim that Cameroon is one and indivisible to to rise up to the challenge and demonstrate in condemnation of the atrocities meted on the other Cameroonians in the North West and the South West regions. I call on them before the start to crisscross the country to look for votes in the upcoming political consultations, to show it today that they deserve to go into the North west and South west to seek militancy and votes because Cameroon is one and indivisible. Please before you come seeking for votes, show us today how you deserve those votes.

I Challenge our francophone brothers all over the country, our brothers and sister of the Centre, the South, the West, the East, the North, the Adamaoua, the Far North, and the Littoral to rise and cry injustice to the government that would release troops on citizens like dogs on thieves and criminals. I challenge you to stand in solidarity with the other citizens of the same one Cameroon who are of the North West and South West Regions to request for justice, to request for restraint from the forces, to request for a fair hearing to the genuine cries of your brothers and sisters on the other side of the one and indivisible Cameroon. Otherwise, you really cannot tell me that we are one and indivisible, no you cannot tell me that we are brothers and sister. I challenge you!!
