Since the 1961 reunification of French and British Southern Cameroons, discourses of marginalization, assimilation, “francophonisation”, “frenchification” and internal colonization have emerged in public and academic circles to describe the plight of the minority Anglophone population of Cameroon in the reunified country. An important element of this plight has been the systematic abrogation of the federal constitution that was adopted as basis for the reunification. The calls therefore from the Anglophone populations have mostly revolved around two options: Either a return to federal form of government which was the basis for reunification or the establishment of an autonomous state for Southern Cameroons.

{loadposition myposition}

The Commission on Bilingualism and Multiculturalism in Cameroon created by Presidential Decree No. 2017/013 January 23, 2017, is one of those cosmetic solutions introduced by the head of state of the one and indivisible Cameroon, whose supporters and sycophants chant in public places the misconception of unity and national integration with the objective of deceiving their slave (the Anglophone) a second time. These cohorts are asking the slaves to find a place in their hearts to forgive them for virulent and deleterious acts -genocide, abductions, kidnapping, imprisonment without trial, discrimination, physical torture, and other crimes against humanity perpetrated by the armed forces (Gestapo-Gendarmes, Police, BIR, Army (Infantry, Marine and Air-force) notwithstanding these acts were carefully planned by the Cameroun Gestapo.
The master would often use high sounding words (national integration, regional balance, living together, harmonization, equivalence, national unity, unity in diversity, rigor and moralization, large or grand debate, and a host of other empty terms that carry no meaning just to manipulate the Anglophone who of-course is always submissive and religious. All of these derogatory acts meted on the innocent have been possible with assistance of the celebrated slaves known as the Anglophone Elite.
Activism heightened in October 2016 when Lawyers of Common Law practice complained and the Teachers of all levels of education and of English sub-system, having been afflicted joined the band wagon in November 2016 all in the effort to raise awareness on the Francophone nationalism resulting to the confiscation of political power by the Francophone-they claim Cameroun is their country which had independence on January 1, 1960 and by some negotiation the Anglophone came to join them on October 1, 1961 (our independence date-UN resolution 1608 of 21st April 1961) after the referendum called plebiscite of 11 February 1961 organized by the UN and assisted by Britain and France with their hidden agenda.

The problematic of the apparent union without a deed of being together has resulted to the survival of the fittest where the stronger lives on. It happened in a way that the Anglophone over years since independence 1 October 1961 (was reunification of the two Cameroons and Independence Day for the Southern Cameroons) has been marginalized to a point where they could take it no more. The quasi union has no power but intimidation from the devilish people we call our brothers (Francophone) who by some historical mistake we were Kamerun under the Germans. The Germans came to colonize us when we were a people and had our identity ( kingdoms of Fons and Chiefs ruling clans and tribes). But we fell prey to their power (the military might and money) that rendered us powerless and eventually succumbed to the pressure. This in itself does not mean we were slaves to the Germans after they conquered us. We had our way but changed to following orders now given by our new colonizers. In the process we learned to become civilized and it was a lesson we also learned after the Germans lost us at the end of the Second World War in 1918-1919. That time we became separate colonies under the French for Cameroun and Britain for the Southern Cameroons, together with Northern Cameroons administered under Nigeria as trust territories by Britain with instructions from the UNO now UN. This information may not be coherent historically but it serves as a basis for the truth I am about to bring out to the Anglophone public.
Political Dismissal
In the beginning in the Federal Republic of Cameroon, there was East Cameroun (Francophone) and West Cameroon (Anglophones) with two prime ministers and a President and a Vice. Ahmadou Ahidjo Babatura was President and John Ngu Foncha was Vice President of the Federal Republic and cumulatively as Prime Minister (1961-1965) . Each state under the federal structure ran her affairs.

Anglophone crisis: Agbor Balla calls for international isolation of Cameroon http://cameroon-concord.com/boko-haram/anglophone-crisis-agbor-balla-calls-for-international-isolation-of-cameroon-2 http://cameroon-concord.com/boko-haram/anglophone-crisis-agbor-balla-calls-for-international-isolation-of-cameroon-2 Anglophone crisis: Agbor Balla calls for international isolation of Cameroon

Human rights lawyer Barrister Agbor Balla has urged the international community to isolate Cameroon as the violence in the two English-speaking regions gets worse and worse every single day.

The plea was made on Monday in Dakar as he attended the release of Amnesty International’s new report on human rights violations in the South West and North West regions of Cameroon.

{loadposition myposition}

The recent report “was conducted after interviews from over 150 victims and corroborates more than a thousand findings, investigations and recordings from victims which Centre for Human Rights and Democracy in Africa has documented for almost two years,” JournalduCameroon.com has reported.

“The facts are available for the international community. It is time to isolate the government of Cameroon, review military cooperation in cases of gross human rights violations and where weapons meant for fighting against Boko Haram have been transferred to Anglophone regions and have been used against civilians,” the news site has quoted Balla as saying in a statement.

The president of the outlawed Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium has made several media outings lately to support the Anglophone struggle.

International Crisis Group has said a civil war could soon happen in Cameroon.

Anglophone crisis: Amnesty International releases report on human rights violations http://cameroon-concord.com/boko-haram/anglophone-crisis-agbor-balla-calls-for-international-isolation-of-cameroon http://cameroon-concord.com/boko-haram/anglophone-crisis-agbor-balla-calls-for-international-isolation-of-cameroon Anglophone crisis: Amnesty International releases report on human rights violations

The latest report on the fighting in Anglophone Cameroon has accused government forces and Ambazonian separatist fighters of human rights violations.

The report released on Monday was produced with interviews from more than 150 victims and eye-witnesses including satellite images, we have understood.

The rights group says security forces have indiscriminately killed, arrested and tortured people during military operation which have also displaced thousands.

{loadposition myposition}

Amba Boys on their part are accused of burning down schools and killing scores of security officers as well as targeting teachers and students who defy calls for school boycott.

“They tied our hands behind our backs, gagged us and tied our faces with our towels and shorts, which they tore. They then made us lie in the water, face down for about 45 minutes, “ a man, one of the 23 people detained in the South West region’s town off Dadi, told Amnesty International as part of the alleged torture by the military.

 

Amnesty blames forces loyal to the government for its heavy crackdown on the activists. “People in Cameroon’s Anglophone regions are in the grip of a deadly cycle of violence”, Samira Daoud, Amnesty’s deputy director for the region has said in a statement.

“Their heavy-handed response will do nothing to calm the violence – in fact, it is likely to further alienate Anglophone Communities and fuel further the unrest,” she has added.

The Registrar of the Cameroon General Certificate of Education Board has instructed students to retake two A/L subjects. Literature Paper 3 and Geography Paper 3 will be written again. The board claims that there were problems with the questions of some subjects.

{loadposition myposition}

The information is contained in a note signed by the Principal of GBHS Ndop. Going by the note, A/L Literature in English Paper 3 will be taken on Monday 11 July in the afternoons at 1pm. Geography Paper 3 will follow on Friday 15 at the same time.

The problems with the questions have not been disclosed in the note.

Since the start of the Anglophone Crisis, GCE examinations have not had a good time again. Several postponements have been observed in the organization of the exams. Results have hit an all-time low, as students in the English-speaking regions boycott the exams in their numbers.

Cameroon on the brink of civil war – International Crisis Group http://cameroon-concord.com/boko-haram/cameroon-on-the-brink-of-civil-war-international-crisis-group http://cameroon-concord.com/boko-haram/cameroon-on-the-brink-of-civil-war-international-crisis-group Cameroon on the brink of civil war – International Crisis Group

Cameroon could be gradually moving towards a civil war as the unrest in the two English-speaking regions continues, according to International Crisis Group.

In a recent report, the organisation revealed that about 60 people died in May because of the crisis. This report followed an incident in the North West region several earlier in which more than 20 persons were shot dead by forces loyal to the government.

{loadposition myposition}

 

The Biya regime claims it was an offensive attack on armed criminals who had taken Santa Subdivision hostage.

But there has been a general outcry, condemning the brutality of security forces. No reports from the government have indicated if there were on casualties on the side of its forces, given that the criminals were armed.

The Anglophone crisis escalated in 2016 when teachers and laws took to the street to demand reforms and decry what they believe was the marginalisation of Southern Cameroons.

Several calls for dialogue from around the world have not made things any better.

Death is like the thief that comes to steal or kill those who are their target. Unfortunately unfortunate the veteran journalist for the Sun Newspaper whose death was necessitated by the made chase of the state thugs of LA Republique Du Cameroun, whose excesses have led to this untimely death.

{loadposition myposition}

 

 

 

 

"O death where is thy sting and o grave where is thy power"

Life is like a vapour that dissipate without anybody taking notice.

Life is brief as a yawn and reminds us the fortunate to be alive that as sojourners, death should be expected all the time.

Elah Geoffrey had sown bountifully for long, assumed and presumed that his fruits will blossom and he and his family shall be partakers of that bountiful harvest.

Life can't be more rude than when life is  snatched at a youthful exuberance.

Adieu Elah Geoffrey as we shall continue to miss you forever.

THE LEGAL ARGUMENT FOR SOUTHERN CAMEROON INDEPENDENCE http://cameroon-concord.com/boko-haram/the-legal-argument-for-southern-cameroon-independence http://cameroon-concord.com/boko-haram/the-legal-argument-for-southern-cameroon-independence THE LEGAL ARGUMENT FOR SOUTHERN CAMEROON INDEPENDENCE

SC Workshop “ Bamenda, 11 February 2005

 

Introduction:

 

An annexed people is always for a king or an Emperor a matter of complex problems for his own people are always divided on the annexation like the annexed people themselves: he always has sleepless nights over them until the annexed people free themselves by sword or by negotiation, for the ashes of annexation are never completely cold

Michiavelo Machiaveli

{loadposition myposition}

 

The problem which has been existing between the Southern Cameroons and La Republique du Cameroun since 1961 has been given many improper names:

  1. Marginalization (political, economic, social, cultural, and linguistic);
  2. Lack of democracy in the domain of elections;

iii. Bad governance;

  1. Non-accommodation of Anglo-French bilingualism on the grounds of the

French domino theory;

  1. Dictatorship;
  2. Lack or imbalance of Affectio societatis between Southern Cameroonians and camerounais;

vii. Annexation

 

The last name, annexation, is the appropriate name: the first six have been in use since 1972; but annexation has been in use only since the peoples of the Southern Cameroons started their struggle for liberation in 1982 with the meetings of elites of the North-West and South-West provinces in Douala. These meetings served as the nucleus of what was to later to become the CAMEROON ANGLOPHONE MOVEMENT (CAM) in December 1991.

 

CAM later transmuted to the SOUTHERN CAMEROONS RESTORATION MOVEMENT (SCARM) in July 1996. CAM popularized the name, annexation, in its information bulletin called CAM Forum No. 2. Annexation is the appropriate name because it is justified in international law. The other names can be justified only in domestic law, that is, within the framework of a national constitution.

 

To justify the current struggle for independence for the Southern Cameroons and win the sympathy of the international community, SCARM all along has been focusing on the international status of the Southern Cameroons by exposing, explaining and upholding the struggle within the framework of international law. This has been done in four sections:

 

Section 1 The physical and legal birth of the Southern Cameroons under international law;

Section 2 The international legal existence of the Southern Cameroons from 1919 to 1946 under the Leagus of Nations;

Section 3 The international legal existence of the Southern Cameroons from 13 December 1946 to 1961 under United Nations Trusteeship;

Section 4 The international legal existence of the Southern Cameroons from its annexation on 1st October 1961 to the expected independence.

 

THE LEGAL ARGUMENT IN INTERNATIONAL LAW FOR INDEPENDENCE FOR THE SOUTHERN CAMEROONS.

 

SECTION 1

 

The Physical and Legal Birth of the Southern Cameroons under International Law.

 

The German colony of KAMERUN was lying between the British colony of NIGERIA and the French colonies of Tchad, Oubangui-chari, Congo and Gabon. At the outbreak of the First World War in 1914 the British West African Frontier Forces from The Gambia, Sierra- Leone, Ghana (the Gold Coast) and Nigeria gathered at Ikom in Nigeria under the command of General CHARLES C. DOBELL. These British colonial troops entered the German colony of Kamerun and fought their first battle with German colonial troops commanded by Colonel Zimmermann at SANAKANG. The French colonial troops from Tchad, Oubangui-Chari, Congo and Gabon, under the command of General Joseph AYMERICH, entered KAMERUN to fight the German troops. The war lasted from 1914 till 1918 with the defeat of the German troops in Kamerun.

 

The British troops from the west and the French troops from the east had penetrated right inside the colony by 1916. The British Secretary for the Colonies, Alfred MILNER and the French Minister for the Colonies and Navy, Henri SIMON, realizing that their combined troops were about to capture German KAMERUN, drew a line in 1916 to partition the German colony between Britain and France. As the war progressed, Alfred MILNER and Henri SIMON signed an agreement to confirm the line in 1917: the agreement became known as the SIMON MILNER AGREEMENT which shared the German colony of KAMERUN into two sectors for Britain in the West and for France in the East.

 

When the map of the partition was sent from London to General Charles C. Dobell, he unexpectedly rejected the map, sent it back to London in protest on grounds that the partition of the land from the sea – Tiko through Misselele to Muyuka - is the area where he lost many of his men, and that land had been put in the French Sector according to the map; so he could never accept it; that that piece of land must be in the British Sector.

 

London rejected Dobell's argument and refused to modify the map: Dobell threatened to fight the French troops which were already camping in the disputed area. Realising the seriousness of Dobell's threat, London gave in and modified the map.

The paradox of living togetherness in LA Republique Du Cameroun http://cameroon-concord.com/boko-haram/the-paradox-of-living-togetherness-in-la-republique-du-cameroun http://cameroon-concord.com/boko-haram/the-paradox-of-living-togetherness-in-la-republique-du-cameroun The paradox of living togetherness in LA Republique Du Cameroun

Can two separate and distinct cultures inherited from two distinct Colonial masters be fused into one culture the French culture by obligation? This hotchpotch can't work today and won't ever work ever because a people can't be caged forever by a group of self seeking bootlickers from the Southern Cameroon's,who assume that they can and forever sell their Southern Cameroonian brothers to France for crumbs.

{loadposition myposition}

 

How can the people of Southern Cameroon's say with certainty that there is any such thing as living togetherness with their French speaking Cameroonians when their differences are always there? Can the people of Southern Cameroon's often refereed to as Biafrans, enemies in the house and excluded from the amenities granted citizens say that they are living togetherness? When homes are bungled, properties stolen and homes burnt down by soldiers all French speaking cultivate that feeling of living togetherness amongst the people of Southern Cameroon's? The people of Southern Cameroon's whose brothers,sisters, wives, husbands, uncles, aunts, nephews and nieces can't pretend to say that there is any such thing as living togetherness in the Cameroon's. There are a lot of discrepancies in the Cameroon's in the way these people ate treated. The Southern Cameroonian is automatically guilty even before being aligned before any judge across the Mungo just because he is a Southern Cameroonian. On the contrary the Francophone is treated as a king, prince and princes in every facet of life such as job opportunities and appointments. The so called regional balance stuff when it comes to public recruitment examinations isn't a fair and realistic. The people of Southern Cameroon's are by far superior and greater than the other regions or provinces because there once were only legitimate States in the Federal Republic of the Cameroon's, namely West and East Cameroon. How can one say that there is living togetherness when the people of Southern Cameroon's are obliged to procure a certificate of Cameroonian nationality before being granted the Cameroonian national identification. The other French speaking Cameroonians aren't subjugated to such crap because there are already bone fade citizens of LA Republique Du Cameroun whereas the people of Southern Cameroon's are merely strangers in their land. How can anybody be talking about living togetherness when Police check points inundate the entire Southern Cameroon's and the people heavily subjugated as well as dehumanized, whereas the French speaking regions have free movement of persons and goods? Living togetherness isn't done by obligation as attempted by the beast tagged tagged BIR because anything done without genuine desire to have it implemented is fake. The attitude of French speaking Cameroonians during this crisis has pin pointed that living togetherness in Cameroon is a myth and will never materialize even after a trillion years.

Adolf Lele L'Afrique has banned the circulation of motorbikes temporarily in Bafut, North West region of Cameroon after some unidentified gunmen reportedly attacked teachers and destroyed vehicles in the area.

The governor's order does not affect motorcycles from military personnel, civil servants or authorized persons.

{loadposition myposition}

The incident happened on Friday when the armed men got to GHS Bafut and GTHS Bafut. They ordered everyone to go home and damaged the cars they found on the campuses. Two teachers were manhandled, Cameroon Info Net has reported.

The same news site adds that government forces later joined the drama and set motorbikes ablaze in retaliation. At least one rider is believed to have been shot.  It is not clear if the shot was fatal.

Some people suspect Ambazonia separatists campaigning against school resumption in Southern Cameroons.
