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.

A suicide bomb attack killed 10 people and injured 30 others in the northeast Nigerian city of Maiduguri on Wednesday, an emergency agency official said. Bello Dambatta, a spokesman for the State Emergency Agency (SEMA),

said the attack took place in the Muna Garage district of the city, which is the capital of Borno state and the epicentre of the Islamist militant Boko Haram insurgency.

A memo written by the South-west Elite Association SWELA, and destined to President Biya was abandoned in en empty hall after a coordination committee meeting on Saturday, November 11 in Kumba.

The document read at the meeting, advocates for free admission of Anglophones into HTTC Kumba and a quota for those wishing to read medicine at the University of Buea.


Just four delegates and the SWELA Scribe, Joseph Moki Etukeni, showed up the Kumba City Council Chambers for the meeting. A host of 16 names in a radio announcement which Emmanuel Etuge, Secretary of the Meme Coordination Committee invited to the meeting were absent. Those invited, but never showed up included; Wilson Ekong Sona, John Nduku Agbor, Isaac Mania, Prince Ndoki Mukete, Maurice Ndo Lobe, Dr. Joseph Betoto, Dr Zacheus Ebongo, Rev. Nyansoko Ni-Nku, Elisius Agbor, Victor Ndip Akem, L.T Nso, Professor Daniel Anime, and all the Mayors of Kumba and Chiefs of the Region.
Quizzed on the massive boycott of the meeting, the SWELA Scribe stated that it was a meeting exclusive to members of the General Secretariat. He claimed the Assistant Scribes from the six Divisions of the South-west and their executives were expected.
 
Moki claimed that having four of the six Assistant Secretaries General present at the meeting makes the deliberations representative of the population. He explained that the Memo is part of SWELA's contrtbution to seek solutions to the Anglophone Crisis.


 
 Other Demands
 
SWELA, in the memo, wants the Head of State to fully implement the 1996 Constitution. The association believes a Constitutional Court would have easily addressed the Anglophone Crisis.
The same document wants Biya to put in place the Regional Councils. It stands for the election of Divisional Delegates and two chiefs from each Division, into the Regional House.The elite association is also asking Government to make projects such as the Limbe Deep Sea Port a reality. It draws the attention of Government to the nauseating absence of industries in in the Anglophone regions.
The document, which is still under process, is expected to reach the presidency, following Saturday's deliberation.


Invitee fighting over Announcement


The Poet gathered that a host of those invited to the meeting queried over the position of their names. Such individuals visited radio stations asking  that their names be read first whereas none of them attended the meeting.
 
Moki insinuated that there was  a campaign against the meeting. He linked the development to that fact that, his leadership is not an appendage of the  is not an appendage the CPDM.
 Meme SWELA Scribe, Prince Daniel Nasako, told reporters that Moki has an agender of his own. He claimed there are internal issues within the association that must be addressed and not convening a meeting without invitees present. Nasako staged a walkout at the meeting claiming he was not invited.
