A Eulogy to Elah Geoffrey http://cameroon-concord.com/boko-haram/a-eulogy-to-elah-geoffrey http://cameroon-concord.com/boko-haram/a-eulogy-to-elah-geoffrey A Eulogy to Elah Geoffrey

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.

North-West governor bans motorbikes in Bafut http://cameroon-concord.com/boko-haram/north-west-governor-bans-motorbikes-in-bafut http://cameroon-concord.com/boko-haram/north-west-governor-bans-motorbikes-in-bafut North-West governor bans motorbikes in Bafut

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.

Anglophone crisis: Paul Biya pulls back General Melingui Nouma http://cameroon-concord.com/boko-haram/anglophone-crisis-paul-biya-pulls-back-general-melingui-nouma http://cameroon-concord.com/boko-haram/anglophone-crisis-paul-biya-pulls-back-general-melingui-nouma

President Paul Biya has ordered General Melingui to move back to Yaounde as the Anglophone crisis intensifies.

Melingui Nouma was the commander of the 21st Mechanised Infantry Division in Buea.

The move comes hours after gunshots are reportedly heard in Buea.

Colonel Djotsa has taken over.

{loadposition myposition}

 

It is not yet clear enough why Mr Biya decided to pull Melingui from the battlefield.

Rumours suggest the general has been overwhelmed by the intensity of the unrest. Soldiers continue to fall in clashes with separatist forces.

Cameroon: ‘DO for Buea Sub Division imposes curfew’ http://cameroon-concord.com/boko-haram/cameroon-do-for-buea-sub-division-imposes-curfew http://cameroon-concord.com/boko-haram/cameroon-do-for-buea-sub-division-imposes-curfew Cameroon: ‘DO for Buea Sub Division imposes curfew’

A note circulating on social media features a curfew from the divisional officer for Buea Sub Division. Movements from 7pm to 6am are prohibited.

Buea is the capital of the South West region of Cameroon. It is one of the two English-speaking regions of the country fighting for autonomy or complete reform in the nature of the state.

{loadposition myposition}

"The Divisional Officer for Buea Sub Division hereby reminds all commercial motor cycle riders and the general public of the prohibition of movements from 7:00pm to 6:00a in execution of the regional order No 139/L/SEC/22/SP," the note reads.

"Any rider who goes contrary to the order shall attract immediate reaction from the forces of law and order without prior warning," it warns.

A similar note was disowned by the powers that be months ago. It reportedly cautioned some villagers to relocate following an eventual crackdown on Ambazonian separatist fighters.

Tuesday 08 May 2018 is a decisive day for Mancho Bibixy  who will be appearing in court. 

{loadposition myposition}

 

In the last court hearing, Bibixy was acquitted of rebellion, civil war, killing and destruction but still guilty of terrorism, session and revolution.

He has been in prison for months now, as a result of his fight for the rights of Southern Cameroonians.

Since his imprisonment, one of the conditions for dialogue the Ambazonian activists gave was his release which they have been fighting for all this while.
