It is true that we are all in the struggle for the good of p Anglophone Cameroonians, but in the course of this “la Lotta continua” it is unacceptable-that we lose the very values in which we the West Cameroonians were formed and brought up and which we are struggling by this very struggle to reestablish.This is the value of respect for elders and men of God. Mr. Boh Herbert who is now insulting the Bishops of the Bamenda Ecclesiastical Province, is a product of Catholic Education, at least from Primary school to secondary school. He did not just go to any secondary school but went to Bishop Rogan College Buea which is a minor seminary, and thus he had nursed the intention to become aCatholic Priest at some point in time. More so, Boh Herbert went to Bishop Rogan college at the time that many of the boys from the villages could hardly pay fees and the missionaries either paid for them or let them study for free. It is a shame that today, it is Boh Herbert, who would record his voice not only to challenge but insinuate insults on Bishops, who are men of God and successors of the Apostles. That voice clip will remain in history and Boh’s children will listen to it and be ashamed of their father, and his own father will turn in his grave in shame of his son. Mr. Boh cannot claim that he loves West Cameroonmore than any of the Bishops and what the Bishops have done in this struggle for justice to be established among the people of West Cameroon, Mr. Boh has not done and cannot do. The Bishops who are our spiritual fathers look at the global picture for the common good of our people and above all for our children. Mr. Boh sits in the United States of America and thinks that he can take hostage all Anglophone children and turn them into illiterates and use them as bullets for the struggle. Herbert is living out of context and thus he does not even know the realities on the ground. Generals command war from the battle ground and not from some hiding place where they are completely safe and they are instructing foot soldiers on which direction the fight should go. Boh should follow the example of our hero Hon. Joe Wirba and come back and stand up tobe counted and he will be a real commander. There are people who in the course of struggling in this fight in either camps, have lost their reasoning and they risk incurring curses upon themselves and upon their subsequent generations. Some of these include Paul Atanga Nji,Ekema Patrick, Okalia Bilai, Achu Julius and now Boh Herbert is struggling to join their ranks. Why do I say so?
Mr. Boh, if you went to Bishop Rogan college, it means that you have abit of knowledge of the Scriptures. The Scriptures say, “Do no touch my anointed ones; do my prophets no harm” (Ps.105:15) and I advice you to follow the wisdom of David who had the occasion to molest and kill King Saul,but he instead told his men, “The Lord forbid that I should do this to my Lord the King and attack the Lord’s anointed one, for the Lord himself has chosen him”.(I Samuel 24:6) What you are doing Mr. Boh is that you are behaving exactly like the authorities of La Republique du Cameroun, by forcing your opinion and your will on others and thanks you have no army, you would have been worse in brutalizing citizens more than the colonial masters you are seeking to expel from our territory. La Republique du Cameroun thinks that bishops are nobodies and because they are the moral voice of the Anglophone Cameroonians, they have to smear dung on them and disgrace them, and that is why they are in courts with criminal charges on their heads, brought by agents of LRC. You are doing exactly the same, although your own court to which you have dragged the bishops is the social media. The Bishopric is a divine institution and no matter the foolishness and weakness of those who carry it, they are chosen men of God and deserve respect. Even if the bishops took a foolish decision, it is not you, a born and brought up Catholic, that will go to the social media and think that you can disgrace them. You act exactly like Okwonkwo in Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart” who thought that he would be considered a hero if he killed his own son. Go and read Genesis 9:22 and see the curse that came upon the man who saw his father’s nakedness and started laughing and invited the others to come and see, instead of getting a loin cloth to cover his father. That is the risk you are running Mr. Boh. Above everything, if after all the church has done for you. Mr Boh, you can turn around and insinuate that the Bishops are fools,unreasonable, etc, then know that these words are for you: "But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court; and whoever says to his brother, 'You good-for-nothing,' shall be guilty before the supreme court; and whoever says, 'You fool,' shall be guilty enough to go into the fiery hell.” Mtt.5:22. I hope this write up will put an end to this rubbish that anybody thinks that LRC has set them the standard to get up from their sleep and insult our bishops and try to treat them like small children and unreasonable rascals. This is not the moral formation we received in our days in West Cameroon and it is not the behavior we want our children in the Anglophone territory to copy. Bishops have said that schools should begin in September 2017 and schools will begin. But “La lotta continua”.
