The question worth answering is what exactly is the UNHCR afraid of? Could it be that the work of the Ayah Foundation is exposing their weaknesses as an international relief agency? Could it be because the Ayah Foundation has been doing more to document the actual living conditions of the refugees than the UNHCR? Or may be it is because the UNHCR has colluded with the Regime in Yaounde to ensure that Biya's plans of exterminating Anglophones is successful.

Joseph Wirba did not only throw caution to the wind and abruptly make an appearance in parliament; he took the moment to address the house in the exact forceful manner he had done before and was declared a persona non grata. A visibly shaken and confused Speaker of the House of Assembly, Cavaye Yegue Djibril, failed to stop Hon Wirba from putting across his message. With the same eloquence he has come to be known for, with the same logical arguments for the government to pay serious attention to the plight of West Cameroonians, a determined Wirba made his arguments for justice for Anglophones.
One thing that’s common to the Anglophones is our sense of critique; our need to accountability and our penchant to question authority. I must say, SCACUF did its best to tap into the anger of the arrests or our leaders, the intimidation of our peoples and the perceived need to unify our voices in opposition to the status quo. Unfortunately, with no vision or plan of action, no accountability, and resorting to violence and blackmail as a means of persuasion; the train, in SCACUF terms, has since moved on with the people leaving them behind.
We have come too far to be conned by anyone that is not ready to answer serious questions and be held accountable. At the signing of the retainer yesterday in Boston, oddly on a Sabbath day, one could not escape the rookie mistake of the lady who issued the check - while the numerical value said $35,000.00, she wrote it out for "thirty-five 00/100" dollars. It certainly can be corrected, but it does not bode well for the quality of people that are representing us at SCACUF / SCAPAC. We have been blaming Foncha and Muna for dragging us into the doodoo, but it seems as if we could be regrettably poised for a repeat of the mistakes of the past by investing our emotions and not our brains into this fight.
It is one more reason why we need to fight against any forces that are stonewalling the logical step of an Interim Government in Exile that the roadmap, birthed by MoRISC and adopted by SCACUF, calls for. It is strange that SCACUF has recently pulled down the roadmap page from the website. It may be reasonable to wonder whether it is a clear indication of an intention to derail the restoration agenda. The reasons keep on piling why we need a qualified, visionary leader. We must continue to source for our Moses, possibly one who is voted into office by universal suffrage and with a clear mandate and resources to carry out the task at hand. This fight needs a leader, not charlatans or position fillers with some scars to show, that will understand the fierce urgency not now towards the countdown to the restoration of our independence
The President of the Cameroon Bar Council recently announced that Common Law Lawyers will be returning to court, signalling an end to the strike action that has paralysed the legal, educational and other sub-systems of West Cameroon.
During the period of the strike action, rather than make efforts to grant the demands of the striking civil society, the recalcitrant government of Cameroon resorted to intimidation.
Arbitrary arrests, rape, torture, shutdown or the internet amongs other human rights violations.
With none of the demands of the strikers granted, it is nothing but shocking that the Bar Council President should announce a return to the courts.
Following is a response from one of the Barrister's and it is fair to say, after listening to other views on Afrique Media today, that his position represents that of the majority.
