From Switzerland to Music: Kemta Haunts Biya, Tells Anglophones Not to Give Up Their Quest for Freedom

In his latest release titled Don't Give Up, Kemta captures the short history of the current phase of the Anglophone crisis. He highlights that although some are asking for Federalism and some Separation, the bottom line is that, everyone wants Biya to go. Also, speaking on behalf of CODE, Kemta in this piece, demands that the Cameroon military stop the genocide it is carrying out in the Anglophone Regions. He further makes the declaration that Biya is wrong to tag Anglophone fighters as 'terrorists' given that they are simply engaged in legitimate self-defense.  A Cameroonian of Francophone extraction, Kemta has been among one of the most vocal activists challenging the gradual and systematic extermination of English-Speaking Cameroonians. He has been part of many demonstrations organised in the United Kingdom. (Click to read full article)

How Did Samuel Ikome Sako of Ambazonia End up Representing Another Organisation at the UN?

I was rather surprised to find out that Mr. Sako and another Martin Ayong Ayim had presented themselves as representing interests that had nothing to do with either Ambazonia, Southern Cameroons or even the Republic of Cameroon. They were listed as representatives number 60 and 61 in a document A/C.4/73/7 titled "Question of Western Sahara: Requests for hearing". On this document, Sako is listed as a representative of African Solidarity of Sahrawi. According to the UN document, a representative from Cameroon had raised concerns about the presence of two individuals on the list of representatives. It, therefore, goes on to state that "Samuel Ikome Sako of Africa Solidarity for Sahrawi and Martin Ayong Ayim of Living Stories and Memories, are listed in the requests for hearings on Western Sahara." and that "The Committee will take up those two requests later in the week following the informal consultations,"

Cardinal Tumi Confirms that All Anglophone Conference is going ahead as Planned: Just on a Future Date

Despite some initial challenges and reservations expressed within some quarters, Christian Cardinal Tumi has today confirmed that the All Anglophone Conference is going ahead as planned.  In a Press Release following a meeting that took place today in Douala, the economic capital of Cameroon, the retired cardinal expressed satisfaction at how plans were going towards the realisation of the conference. He also confirmed that there has been overwhelming support from across Cameroon

The One Thing that Scares both Ambazonians and the Biya Regime in Cameroon

If anything, this is by every indication, a very unusual alliance between the Biya regime and the Ambazonians, whose only point of convergence is their disdain for the Federalist. This, however, is understandable, given that the Federalist stands as the voice of reason within the carnage. The federalist presents the meeting point between two extremes and most importantly, the federalist approach presents the most likely prospect of success in giving autonomy to the Anglophone and bringing a close to the crisis. Why would this be a problem for the Biya regime and the Ambazonian, one may ask? This is simply, the two extremes thrive on power and control, the Biya regime loses its control of the English-speaking regions, unleashing the potential for accountability and growth. The Ambazonian leaders lose their only opportunity of attaining leadership by ascription rather than merit. The federalist position is one in which the actors have no personal benefits other than a change in the state which will usher in devolution of power, accountability and a system of fairness where the best and brightest will lead. This, unfortunately, is something that both the Biya regime and most of the current Ambazonia leadership, do not clearly want as it will render them obsolete 

Ayaba Cho Lucas Allegedly Exposed in Fake London Oil Deal

This scandal, whatever its merits may be, has further deepened the mistrust and rifts that exist between the leaders of the Ambazonia movement. As tensions intensify in Cameroon and as the death toll increases, with the number of internally displaced persons reaching an all time high, it is imperative that there is some semblance of unity of purpose among the front-line leaders.

#Cameroon’s Paul #Biya Goes into Shock as Kamto Declares Victory

Within the presidency, information reaching us is that Mr. Biya has been in shock over the turn of events and this has worsened following Kamto's declaration. This is not surprising given that a few weeks ago, Biya was in Geneva Switzerland receiving medical attention. Also taking into consideration that Biya is 85 years old, such news would have been bad for his ailing health.  A source from within Biya's ruling CPDM party has highlighted that the President has not been able to leave the country for medical attention as this would be considered a concession of defeat and an attempt to abscond. However, it is reported that medical staff from the Geneva University Hospital, who have been taking care of Biya, have been flown into Yaounde, to be on standby as his health is expected to deteriorate. The Geneva University Hospital is renowned its Stem Cells Collection and Cord Blood Banking, among other specialisations.
