Anglophone Crisis Cameroon: How can you pretend to love this country???

When through ignorance, foolhardiness, idiocy, 18th century societal governance exaction, and multiform gross miscalculations we have decided to turn our own country into the real Heart of Darkness perceived through the scribbles of Conrad, then there should be no question of how and where I have to cry, blubber or wail out laud. Everyone (including right thinking francophones and of course the usual plethora of ill-informed, half-baked pseudo intellectuals) seems to have an incredible something to articulate about how the crisis in our country should have or should not have been handled! Thank God we all have opinions and approaches. Thank God we all know what others should have or shouldn't have done. Thank God all our individual solutions are the best ever!

The issue here therefore, is one of 25 million solutions to a single crisis. Oh yes, 25 million. If we agree that the ongoing crisis has gone off hand, then let us be unassuming enough to put our finger on how the derailment sparked off. If we think the Lawyers and Teachers were never supposed to have voiced out the grievances and the gripe we all suffer, then we should rethink our pretentious claims to patriotism. In all homes, the adolescent who questions the parents has always been the intelligent one; the hope of that family!

The dumb, meek, and candy addict remains a disgrace for through such will nothing but ignominy befall the family. If the Lawyers and Teachers speak out, and we decide to give a false, forged and bogus coloring to their plight, then we have ourselves to blame for the unfortunate/ adverse upshot. As a first reaction (coming rather late) to the lawyers and teachers, the President set up a committee to dialogue with the leaders of these professional corps. But we, yes, I say WE because I have been coerced into accepting that I am part of the voodoo miscalculations that have littered this panoramic scene from inception till date. I accept! WE decided to keep aside the commissions and organize a classic march of the CPDM instead. If you like you can ask me what is wrong in that. "Nothing!" I would say but my Dear Patriot... Did the Lawyers and Teachers complain that their dear party has not marched for long??



Let's drum it down our heads (for those who have any) that derailment number 3 was this unorthodox "patriotic" decision. I put it number three because I think WE actually started by sending police to brutalize the lawyers as a token of our love for our country! I put it no. 3 because the students pulled out of their hostels in nightgowns and suffocated in sewage could not have been striking in that attire. And even if they were, that kind of treatment clearly spells it out that the security men never never considered those children to be humans, let alone they being Cameroonian! I say no. 3 to remind us that refusing to dialogue with Cameroonians when we do dialogue with Boko Haram and exchange captives is gruesome! I say no. 3 because after the shocking images of torn testicles on social media, “patriots” like Cameroon Tribune organized a funeral for the burnt flag!!!

 I say number three because those who advice the President did not tell him that Anglophone Cameroonians including some francophones all over the world have been out demonstrating. Rather WE told him that teachers and lawyers were being "manipulated". Who has succeeded to manipulate everybody just like that? If such exists, then that entity deserves the leadership of the people.

 If it’s a war of manipulation, why is gov't unable to manipulate? I earlier mentioned 25 million answers to a single question. For an Anglophone problem, Senator Musonge whom I respect very much, decided on his own solution, leaving Achidi Achu to decide on a parallel or perhaps a rival one?

 Do our so-called elite urinate in their pants when it comes to telling the head of state what they think? Do they know that to have designated the PM and his Chief of Cabinet from the beginning, the president can claim that the buffoonery came from them? Why on earth did the PM accept to go and march? May be that is the real Anglophone problem; panic and confusion at the helm.

 May be the Anglophones need their own “National Media” because if we are on an Anglophone problem, why is CRTV letting more francophones to talk about it than those concerned? If it is an Anglophone problem, why do we think pictures (fake or real) of pupils marching on February 11can be any form of solution? If this historic approach may have been taught by the French colonial masters, and must have succeeded in the former French colonies, We (You and I) find it humiliatingly worthless in such a context.

This outcome was glaringly predictable! WE, yes, WE have to stop aggravating this problem in the name patriotism and stop turning the "one and indivisible" into a laughing stock. People who are not Cameroonian have been calling to ask me if there is no sane human among the 25 million. Some of us and many more by airing out semi-sane proposals would have helped orientate even the approach to dialogue which seems to have been designed by souls foreign to negotiation and conflict resolution. When begun, dialogue should never be halted because it takes the parties to sentiments more acrimonious and rancorous than the initial state of mind (I still remember my diplomacy course). Theory? This has happened unfortunately!

For those who truly love this land, WE, again, WE should stop trying to address the striking public. Decision-making is the preserve to the governor not the oppressed. Telling people to stop ghost town with the lame excuse that it is detrimental to their businesses is by its very nature stupidity. When I go on hunger strike I don’t need a minister to tell me that food nourishes the body. As from now, the striking public can never stop asking to be given the treatment they deserve and will extend the demands with each act of repression.

Technically and scientifically, the group/groups are now too varied and multifaceted to get messages from any Elite, Fon, or even Union leaders. After the Buea sewage gruesome images, secessionists increased by 2000 % and as the days go by, many are swearing never to accept gendarmes parading our villages and harassing our grandmothers in French! The sooner a reasonable speech full of apologies is made in this country with a clear agenda for the remake, the better. WE, should tell the President what WE know is the way out. We think that if some government is too big to respect us, then we legitimately need a modest government at our level. I see that as a human right. We know it! We also know for instance that the use of words that cannot help the situation is babble squandering and may breed the unintended instead.

If people hear extremist three times, the next thing we will hear is “Nous sommes les extrèmistes!” Knack ma hand!!! A lot about life is predictable but it unfortunately requires common sense to predict the logical sequence of occurrences, not tricks. My brother Owona Nguini writes that the government will go wild with repression. I think so too but I equally know the state of mind of the average Anglophone: “Chop fire”, they call themselves. We still remember that as a means to chip away at the death of six at the launching of the SDF, “Official News”, that is CRTV, told us that Fru Ndi had escaped to Nigeria!!! Are WE at it again? I hate déjà vu especially when it brings shame and disgrace. Some of us still have self-pride. In times of conflict, if your contribution does not seek to support the oppressed or the victim, keep your mouth shut. Spare your wife and children the embarrassment of being reminded of your shortcomings. WE are worried because we love this country!!! I really mean we, not WE. I here plead with my so-called “patriots” to understand that we, LOVE THIS COUNTRY more than them!!!
