The KNDP was formed in 1955 by John Ngu Foncha. The party initially sought a close relationship with the UPC Union of the Peoples of Cameroon the main opposition party in French East Cameroun.
The KNDP , in the early days, contained a number of UPC members who had fled persecution in the French zone.
The SDF was formed in Bamenda in 1990 in opposition to the ruling CPDM party that was born from the UC –UNC party of Mr. Ahijo in East Cameroun.
The SDF, in her early days contained, a sizable number of francophone members who had fled persecution in the UC, CNU-CPDM in the French zone.
The KNDP was dissolved by Mr. Ahijo into UC to form CNU = UC+KNDP now called CPDM, at the behest of the French colonial master of those days called Mr. Jean Ramadier .
The SDF is in an all evident close relationship, not with an opposition party in East Cameroun, but with the ruling CPDM party that is responsible for the current constitutional mess in both Cameroons. (UC+KNDP)=CNU = CPDM ).
The same story ( our history not Mr. Foncha nor Mr. Ahijo's story ) is repeating itself today with Mr. Fru Ndi but with the odd paradox that the SDF,which is the main and only anglophone opposition party might be absorbed into the ruling CPDM just as the KNDP was dissolved into the CNU.
We must recall and never forget that the CPDM is the son of Mr. Ahijo's UC (Union Camerounaise) hence CNU or UNC ( Union Nationale Camerounaise) and today’s RDPC ( Rassamblement Democratique du People Camerounias), which translates into “ Democratic Reassembly of the Cameroon Peoples”. All these different names are a cosmetic makeup to fit the convenience of the French nominated Cameroonian politician to stay in power and toe the line of the 26-12-1959 Cooperation agreement between France and the nascent pseudo independent state of La Republique du Cameroun so as to safeguard the French colonialist unionist ideology at the end of the UN Trust Territory agreement in 01-01-1960.
It must be stated that France sole interest in LRC is nothing more than the goal of capturing and securing the rich oil wells of the Ex UN Trust Territory of Southern Cameroons which was not, cannot and shall never become a colony of France. France sole interest in LRC is for the capture and indirect annexation of Southern Cameroons in a fraudulent way and against international Law, UNGA Resolution 1806XV against which France and all her ex colonies except Mali voted on that fateful day 0f 21-04-1961 at the UNGA.
France fraudulently misinterpreted the UN Trusteeship Agreement as a developement contract for which the UN or LRC must pay France for her development services in LRC. The pre independence cooperation agreement between France and LRC was based mainly on her reliance on the Ndian and Bakassi Oil wells as a legal tender since LRC is void of the black gold that is petroleum.
This fraudulent and illegal annexation was to be done as per the classic French colonial policy and ideology of the “Code Noir” i.e. the Black (Slave) Code designed by France for the administration of the Slave camps in the West indies with specific reference to Haiti .
“The Code Noir was a decree originally passed by France's King Louis XIV in 1685. The Code Noir defined the conditions of slavery in the French colonial empire, restricted the activities of free Negroes, forbade the exercise of any religion other than Roman Catholicism, and ordered all Jews out of France's colonies.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Code_Noir)
The Code Noir was hence upgraded into the “code de l’indegenat” for the administration of the same slave camps ,but this time right there in Africa after the abolition of the slave trade. Old habits die hard !
“The Code de l'indigénat was a set of laws creating, in practice, an inferior legal status for natives of French Colonies from 1887 until 1944–1947 but it lived on in many former ex French colonies in Africa and in LRC until this day.( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indig%C3%A9nat)
The code de l’indegenat during the colonial era enabled the enslavement of the African right there in his Continent with no need of deporting him to the Americas. The indigenes just as in the slave camps of the America and Haiti were and are nothing more than indigenes as compared to French colonial interests in raw materials of these colonies where basic human rights are a secondary and insignificant detail.
The KNDP was dissolved into the CNU now CPDM at the behest of the French colonial master of those days called Mr. Jean Ramadier .
The SDF (just as the KNDP) is in the process of being absorbed into the CPDM at the behest of the same french colonial master.
Both the KNDP and the SDF just as the UC-CNU and CPDM were/are financed indirectly( via exorbitant loans) by the colonial master France pulling the strings behind the stage in LRC which is the only Country in the world that does not recognizes nor celebrates her Independence Day ! Of course ! France will do any and everything so as not to lose the rich oil wells of Ndian and Bakassi !
Prior to independence, St Dominique – the country that is now Haiti – was France's most profitable colony, thanks in no small part to its particularly brutal system of slavery. In 1791, the slaves revolted, and in 1804, after defeating Napoleon's armies, founded the world's first black republic.
Following Haiti's independence, former French slave-owners submitted detailed tabulations of their losses to the French government, with line items for each of "their" slaves that had been "lost" with Haitian independence. In 1825, the French King, Charles X, demanded that Haiti pay an "independence debt" to compensate former colonists for the slaves who had won their freedom in the Haitian Revolution. With warships stationed along the Haitian coast backing up the French demand, France insisted that Haiti pay its former colonizer 150m gold francs – ten times the fledgling black nation's total annual revenues.
Under threat of a French military invasion that aimed at the re-enslavement of the population, the Haitian government had little choice but to agree to pay. Haiti's government was also forced to finance the debt through loans from a single French bank, which capitalized on its monopoly by gauging Haiti with exorbitant interest rates and fees.
The original sum of the indemnity was subsequently reduced, but Haiti still disbursed 90m gold francs to France. This second price the French exacted for the independence Haitians had won in battle was, even in 1825, not lawful. When the original indemnity was imposed by the French king, the slave trade was technically illegal; such a transaction – exchanging cash for human lives valued as slave labour – represented a gross violation of both French and international laws. And Haiti was still paying off this "independence debt" in 1947 – 140 years after the abolition of the slave trade and 85 years after the emancipation proclamation.
A lawsuit launched by the Haitian government to recuperate these extorted funds was aborted prematurely in 2004, with the French-backed overthrow of the government that had had the temerity to point out that France "extorted this money from Haiti by force and… should give it back to us so that we can build primary schools, primary healthcare, water systems and roads".
The French government was similarly quick to suppress a Yes Men-style prank announcement last Bastille Day pledging that France would repay Haiti. On 15 July, the day after the hoax, a spokesperson for the French ministry spokesperson told Agence France Presse that the French government was pursuing possible legal action against the pranksters. https://www.theguardian.com/.../2010/aug/16/haiti-france
The problem here is that the Cameroon politician and their political parties seam not to be aware of playing the same French colonial policy in their very own Country that can never progress democratically, institutionally, economically in such a neocolonialist and absolutely illegal scenario where it is abundantly clear that the ideology of “ one and indivisible Cameroon aka French slave enclosure” has woefully failed the People of both Cameroons. These Cameroonian politicians are unable to set the terms for a termination of the 26-12-1959 Cooperation agreement between France and LRC of which the ex UN Trust Territory of Southern Cameroons was not a party.
COOPERATION AGREEMENTS BETWEEN FRANCE AND LA REPUBLIQUE DU CAMEROUN:
ALREADY 57 YEARS ON!
Signed December 26, 1959 by President Charles de Gaulle of France's and President AHIDJO.
Up to this day, neither Paul B, Georges Pompidou, Valéry Giscard d'Estaing, nor François Mitterrand, nor Jacques Chirac, nor Nicolas Sarkozy nor François Holland, have changed anything in it. But it's article 6 which arouses more curiosities because it was added after the Independence of Southern Cameroons on 01-10-1961. Article 3 lands us in the heart of the STRUGGLE !
1. France will determine the political, economic and sociocultural policy of Cameroun.
2. France will have to mint a currency the FCFA for Cameroun,
3. France will guide the determination of school programs at all levels
4. France will hold in her Treasury, a portfolio called “operation account, 100% of the reserves of Cameroun.
NB: this percentage was modified in 1972 and 1973 respectively via Brazzaville and Dakar to the BEAC and the WAMU, at 65% and finally today it stands at 50%.
5. Cameroon's strategic raw materials will have to be exploited by France in priority. If they are not interested, only then will Cameroun be able to find another partner or exploit them by herself.
6. November 10, 1961: military assistance. Whenever the Camerounian president will be overwhelmed by external aggression or internal rebellion, he may appeal for the military aid of France. If he is no longer in the ability to do so due to the absence of some means of communication, the Ambassador of France in Cameroun can do so in the place and on behalf of the Cameroonian authority.
This is the agreements a “country” signed...
Clearly, La République du Cameroun has never been out of colonization and her independence of 01-01-1960 was rendered null and void by the traitorous “accord de cooperation signed by Ahijo and Charles De Gaulle some 5 days before her independence day!
However! Southern Cameroons was not and shall never be a colony of France.
Is it far-fetched , in the light of the above, to conclude that nothing has changed in the mindset of both anglophone and francophone Cameroon politician in the past 60 years ?
The KNDP of Mr. Jean Fonstia of Dschang brought us into this mess and the SDF of Mr. Jean Fouda Ndi of Babajou is maintaining us in the same mess and has gone as far as asking Mr. Jean Ramadier for a colonial military base in Bamenda to secure the illegally and fraudulently expanded French slave enclosure of Cameroun? AMBAZONIA & LRC SHALL BE FREED !
