Updates from Bamenda

As early as 5am this morning gun shots could be heard here and there emanating from Police men and women, most of them novice in artillery operations of such magnitude. It's alleged that the gun battle erupted when three Police officers were shot, two seriously wounded and one seemingly lifeless. Thereafter orders were given that any civilians caught onsite be brutalized and killed.

The questions that hang on the lips of most city dwellers or populace are: Where were these Police officers attacked in the first place. These Police officers have been abandoned to themselves and have resorted to racketeering, looting, kidnapping, raping and armed robbery.

This annoying attitude of the Purported Police officers,majority being from the Beti Clan has provoked the desire for revenge. Why has the state of LA Republique Du Cameroun refused to honour its engagement with the Geneva convention tagged Convention Against Torture? Police officers have become the law rather than law enforcement officers in the two Anglophone regions of the North West and South West.

Why has LA Republique Du Cameroun spurned the instructions of the UN to pull out their thugs and militia from the North West and South West Regions of the Cameroon's? Can we say LA Republique Du Cameroun is a law abiding nation in the eyes of the International community? The planned genocide is ongoing and looting and state terrorism keeps growing in leaps and bounds. The purported curfew was only launched so that the fake state of LA Republique Du Cameroun could continue unchecked with its pogrom.

 

BaretaNews can now confirm as reported earlier that Enow Orock who was shot last night is CPDM sub-section president of Okoyong. We gathered information that he traveled to Ekok on the night of 17th-18th Nov in supposed violation of the SW Governor's curfew of no movements at night. He was stop at a checkpoint and money was requested from him. Having on him only 6000frs was not enough and this let to some argument and he was shot on the thigh. His situation is seriouse and is currently in Bamenda for treatment. BaretaNews on speaking on phone with a relative of Enow , she displayed shocked and accuses the military as mad people.

 

Let me just state that Enow is just like anyone of us though being a CPDM Sub section President. This barbaric forces everyday in our land are committing grave human right abuses. The maiming, harassment, shooting, of our people continues. The bullet knows no party, these barbaric occupying forces know no party. We must up our game to push them away from homeland. Enow like others, we wish him quick recovery.

 

The United Nations Regional Office for Central Africa (UNOCA) has expressed concerns over the rising spate of deadly exchanges between the Cameroon’s security forces and separatists in the country’s restive anglophone region.

UNOCA head and special emissary of the U.N. chief said the upsurge of violence against civilians and security forces was unacceptable stressing the need for dialogue to resolve deep seated differences.

 

“We strongly condemn those acts of violence. Their authors should be identified and brought before a court in accordance with the law,” Francois Lounceny Fall said in a statement on Thursday November 16, 2017.

He also spoke about commitment of the U.N. to the territorial integrity and unity of Cameroon as a nation. He further reiterated calls for calm and restraint and the need for inclusive dialogue to be held, a view advanced by President Paul Biya in October.

The two regions – Southwest and Northwest – have been at the heart of what has become known as the ‘anglophone crisis.’ The security forces have been accused by rights groups of heavy clampdown on people protesting marginalization in the regions.

Separatists have confirmed being behind recent attacks that has so far led to the death of four paramilitary forces – known as gendarmes. Their respective capitals (Southeast – Buea and northeast – Bamenda) have been under curfew following the attacks.

The quest for the restoration of the statehood of the Republic of Ambazonia picked up momentum. Ghana's former revolutionary leader JJ Rawlings warmly welcome talks with a delegation during a diplomatic endeavour in Ghana headed by HE HRH Fon Fongum Gorji-Dinka of the Republic of Ambazonia. Both men were born on tbe 22nd of June. Both men the dream of Kwame Kruma to liberate Africa, especially their respective countries.

In 1992 the proclamation of the Bamenda High Court Judgment HCB 28/92 formalized the restoration of the statehood of the Republic of Ambazonia with a government and a head of state, HE Fon Fongum Gorji-Dinka, the head of the revolution and the architect of the name Ambazonia. The quest for the restoration of the statehood of the Republic of Ambazonia picked up momentum and inspiration when Ghana's former revolutionary leader JJ Rawlings warmly welcome talks with a delegation during a diplomatic endeavour in Ghana headed by HRH Fon Fongum Gorji-Dinka of the Republic of Ambazonia.

Both men were born on tbe 22nd of June. Both men share the dream of Kwame Kruma to liberate Africa, especially their respective countries.

Can I know what criteria or criterion that was used in 1977 to demarcate the Provinces out of the erstwhile British and French Cameroon of West and East Cameroon? How could two Provinces or Regions be created out of the defunct West Cameroon having as Divisions like Donga Mantung, Bui, Boyo,Manyu, Meme etc much bigger in size and population than the Provinces or Regions that were carved out from the defunct East Cameroon such as the West, East, South and Adamawa?
Is there any document that warrants the unnecessary ranting of Francophones on this falsehood of Cameroon being one?
There is nobody who does not know that there are two separate entities that came together voluntarily in 1961 and have two distinct historical backgrounds, two Educational systems,two judiciary systems and two administrative systems.
Can anybody with s sound mind admit that two separate entities that only came together to form a platform for effective adminstration and nothing else.
Fraudulent approach can't pass for the correct and just approach because it's peddled by a government. No government can govern a people through the use of brute force and through the overwhelming crack down of people through the use of propaganda and extreme violence.


The strangest thing in Cameroon is that the state unfortunately is viewed lopsidedly by the Francophones as a structure independent of the Citizens and must be preserved more than the citizens . The people who must be crushed and even poured with acids are the people of Southern Cameroon's who are dogs,,gnats, cockroaches, monkeys and junkies.
Can anybody accept this carnage committed against unarmed civilians of Southern Cameroon's as the right approach in solving this crisis?
There is nobody who witnessed this carnage,who can admit reconciling with the Francophones who been maimed, incapacitated,physically and psychologically traumatize, incarcerated without any due process such as warrants of arrest, killed in specialized bunkers meant for the people of Southern Cameroon's and go without being inflamed by the actions of the Francophones.

Zimabwe: Mugabe resisting exit negotiotion

President Robert Mugabe is insisting he remains Zimbabwe’s only legitimate ruler, an intelligence source said on Thursday, and is resisting mediation by a Catholic priest to allow the 93-year-old former guerrilla a graceful exit after a military coup.

The priest, Fidelis Mukonori, is acting as a middle-man between Mugabe and the generals, who seized power on Wednesday in a targeted operation against “criminals” in his entourage, a senior political source told Reuters.

The source could not provide details of the talks, which appear to be aimed at a smooth and bloodless transition after the departure of Mugabe, who has led Zimbabwe since independence in 1980.

Mugabe, still seen by many Africans as a liberation hero, is reviled in the West as a despot whose disastrous handling of the economy and willingness to resort to violence to maintain power destroyed one of Africa’s most promising states.

Zimbabwean intelligence reports seen by Reuters suggest that former security chief Emmerson Mnangagwa, who was ousted as vice-president this month, has been mapping out a post-Mugabe vision with the military and opposition for more than a year.

Fuelling speculation that that plan might be rolling into action, opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai, who has been receiving cancer treatment in Britain and South Africa, returned to Harare late on Wednesday, his spokesman said.

South Africa said Mugabe had told President Jacob Zuma by telephone on Wednesday that he was confined to his home but was otherwise fine and the military said it was keeping him and his family, including wife Grace, safe.

Despite the lingering admiration for Mugabe, there is little public affection for 52-year-old Grace, a former government typist who started having an affair with Mugabe in the early 1990s as his first wife, Sally, was dying of kidney disease.

Dubbed “DisGrace” or “Gucci Grace” on account of her reputed love of shopping, she enjoyed a meteoric rise through the ranks of Mugabe’s ruling ZANU-PF in the last two years, culminating in Mnangagwa’s removal a week ago – a move seen as clearing the way for her to succeed her husband.

In contrast to the high political drama unfolding behind closed doors, the streets of the capital remained calm, with people going about their daily business, albeit under the watch of soldiers on armoured vehicles at strategic locations.

Whatever the final outcome, the events could signal a once-in-a-generation change for the former British colony, a regional breadbasket reduced to destitution by economic policies Mugabe’s critics have long blamed on him.
