2019 African Cup of Nations: La Republique du Cameroun’s Hosting Rights Stripped?

A popular Ghanaian online tabloid Modern Ghana has reported that La Republique du Cameroun will be stripped of the right to host the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON), following a damning and negative report over her readiness to host the competition. This development according to the news agency came from former Egypt international goalkeeper and presently Egyptian Media personality, Ahmed Shobier.

According to Shinier, the executive committee of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has received the report of an independent inspection team, which is unfavorable in relation to the progress of work done so far in the construction of new stadia.

The inspection report generally reavels that the state of preparedness by LRC to host the Africa football jamboree in less than 12 months is generally poor, thus the decision of the inspection team to recommend that LRC be stripped of the right to host the tournament.

Morocco is therefore highly tripped to replace LRC as the hosts of the competition, stated Mr. Shobier.

“African Cup of Nations 2019 Morocco: a decision issued by the CAF,” Shobier wrote on his Facebook page.

According to the report by Modern Ghana, Widespread speculation in Egypt media circles suggests that the inspection report recorded several failures that have damaged LRC’s chances, with the construction of the infrastructure branded as ‘woefully insufficient to specifications’.

From Shobeir’s post on his official Facebook page, it means that CAF has received adequate and convincing information to the fact that LRC is unable to organize the African competition and that the football body is awaiting the appropriate opportunity to announce the decision.

CAF had reportedly placed a lot of premium on the report by the independent inspection team before their eight-day inspection visit before deciding if preparations were deemed to be behind schedule.

CAF leader Ahmad Ahmad said then that it will put much weight behind the inspection team’s report.

“We have decided that it is no longer the CAF Executive Committee who will inspect the countries selected for the organization of the AFCON.

“It is now experts who will do it and CAF will decide based on their report,” Ahmad said.

CAF was forced to spring into to action to avoid any embarrassments after reports LRC’s preparations were behind schedule.

The 2019 African Cup of Nations is going to see an innovation, as it is going to be the first of its kind to witness the presence of 24 teams in the competition.

This news of the hosting right to be taking away from LRC is not surprising. Apart from LRC’s state of unpreparedness for the tournament, the political and revolutionary atmosphere especially in Ambazonia is not conducive as a welcoming ground for footballers across Africa. Ambazonians are committed to the restoration of their statehood and the price has already been paid. Consequently, it will be highly suicidal for any African football team to accept to Come and play footbaĺl in Ambazonia or LRC under the present political atmosphere.

    Lrc in her foolish pride thought they will welcome AFCON while continuing their genocide on Ambazonia. Ambazonians reject lrc and will not give them any room. Pride has and will render lrc the home of arrogant criminals. Now they lrc) want to have a sham presidential elections in Ambazonia to continue their genocide – We have and will refuse and resist any attempts by such criminals to force anything down our throats. The aim of Ambazonia is bent on celebrating their independence since October 1961!!!

    Please all Ambazonians help paint the evils of lrc, expose cholera, poor roads, limited electricity, poor water supply, unsanitary hospitals, hotels and housing. Corrupt genocidal police, gendarmes and armed forces. Total insecurity from all borders. Fighting two wars, totally corrupt officials, horrible airports, tweet all countries, no AFCON. Egypt is right, take it away to Morocco or Timbuktu.

    The fact that Cholera a water borne disease is infecting people in the north, in Yaoundé and Douala while roads and bridges are being washed away and electricity supply is intermittent is slowly unmasking the failed State that this french slave call Biya has presided over. Rather than say no to the monumental criminality of Biya and his thieving tribesmen, many a deluding themselves that he should be the LRC President for another seven years. With this type of mind set, why will the world not see Africans as a bunch of jocker’s.
    Hell no Ambazonians it cannot be business as usual with these Etoudi criminals. Enough is enough.

    lrc bir is trained to shot and kill women and children in Ambazonia villages. Now let lrc bir go shot AFCON and force them play in cameroun. bir just killed innocent youths in Buea. What are they afraid of if they have been trained to take real fighters with dane guns? But for the killing of innocent women, youth and children and burning of villages in Ambazonia, the bir has nothing to show for. biya declared a reckless war he will never win. This shows how demented biya is. Let biya go fight AFCON now!!! Pride and arrogance and brutality will helm biya and his criminal thugs in.

Kofi Annan: His Death, SCNC, Biya, The West And Ambazonia






Kofi Annan: His Death, SCNC, Biya, The West And Ambazonia.

Kofi Annan, in memoriam

We have received news this morning of the passing away of Kofi Annan, a son of Ghana and Africa, a statesman of the world. We salute the memory of Kofi Annan who personally achieved many things, including recognition as a Nobel Peace laureate in 2001.

Kofi Annan brings up many memories for us. He worked for a negotiated settlement of the Bakassi conflict. Our forerunners in the struggle lobbied him intensely on case of the annexation of Southern Cameroons by La Republique du Cameroun. Mr Annan even visited Cameroun to discuss our situation. His advice to Biya to initiate negotiation failed.

Being a son of Africa, Annan hoped that Paul Biya will work with the SCNC and other groups to adjust the state peacefully and resolve the root cause of the problem. But he left and nothing changed. Biya duped him. Biya promised him that dialogue will ensue and Mr Annan played his own part of the bargain to not criticise LRC much, to give Cameroun the chance to fix its mess. Lai lai to lai lai, nothing happened. Biya pretended to listen. He ignored him. But sadly too, Kofi Annan had failed to learn from his past failure. As Under Secretary General of the UN in charge of peacekeeping operations, Annan had failed to stop the Rwandan genocide, in which 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus were murdered in 100 days. Mr Annan was also in charge when 8,000 Moslems were massacred in a UN safe area by Serbian forces.

Mr Annan was to some extent let down by the West. But he did publicly recognised that he could have done more to prevent those dark moments from occurring in our world.

Fast forward two decades. Successive batches of UN and world leaders have failed to address the case of the Southern Cameroons. Here we are today – in conflict, our people being murdered by troops loyal to the man whom Kofi Annan trusted, our women being raped, a genocide developing in our land, hundreds of thousands of our people displaced.

Biya scammed Kofi. Unfortunately, the story of this bloody struggle would be insincere without stating the obvious failure of the one African who held the office that could have saved our people from this mess and also preserve the husbands of the several women who are now widows on LRC’s side.

But Mr Annan knows the value of independence. Speaking about Ghana’s independence to a group in 2012 in Canada, he declared, “I walked away as a young man believing change is possible, even radical revolutionary change.”

The people of #Ambazonia #SouthernCameroons should take the hint from Mr Annan’s quote above.

As we mourn a great statesman of the world, a son of Africa, the world should seize the opportunity to examine one of the burning issues where they failed to empower Koffi to resolve the annexation of Southern Cameroons Ambazonia by Cameroun which has now turned into conflict and Africa’s fastest growing humanitarian crisis.

Biya duped Kofi. We hope Antonio Guttieres will reflect on this.

The independence of Ambazonia is non negotiable.

Cameroons Conflict: Biya Hires Another US Lobby Firm







Cameroun Hires Another US Lobby Firm.

La Republique Du Cameroun Government has hired another lobby firm known as Mercury. The Mercury firm will provide Cameroun with media and lobbying support.

BaretaNews can confirm Mercury started her operation with Cameroun on August 1st, 2018 according to documents filed under the US Foreign Agents Registration Act.

According to the registration, the contract runs for 12 months, with the Omnicom agency earning a fee of $100,000 per month, along with a one-time $5,000 fee for legal and filing costs that provides lobbying and media relations support.

It should be noted that this adds to the $400,000 contract with Squire Patton Boggs, another full service global law firm.

This move has been taken lately to fight the Southern Cameroons Independence dream. Political pundits say the regime is in dire need to change the narrative and safe guard the face of Cameroun battered human right abuses in Southern Cameroons and North of its own country.

Southern Cameroonians across the globe have been tweeting calling out the law firm for trying to protect and support a dictorial regime of Paul Biya, Cameroun President who has engaged in huge genocidal acts in Southern Cameroons as his military kill, maim civilians burning homes with some alive. More than 120.000 Southern Cameroonians have been displaced internally with more than 20.000 others seeking refuge in Nigeria

This latest move adds to Cameroun frustration in changing the minds of the international community. A country ravaged by internal civil war, a fallen economy, lack of basic facilities could not invest such resources in dialogue which could readily end the war with less than what is currently being spent in the senseless war but rather decided to spend heavily to hire lobbyists to clean its dirty image and thus prolonging the conflict

BaretaNews however understands that the people of Southern Cameroons are not shaken by this move. Their unity, determination and focus between the diaspora and those at home shall see an independent Southern Cameroons and beat La Republique Du Cameroun out of Ambazonia (Former British Southern Cameroons).

Father Alexander Sob Was Murdered With A Silencer-Bishop Bushu








BaretaNews Breaking

Father Alexander Sob was murdered with a silencer

His Lordship Bishop Bushu, Bishop Of Buea Diocese has dispelled all rumours and Information claiming Rev Father was killed as a result of a cross fire in Muyuka a month ago. He said Fr. Sob was brutally murdered with a silencer.

Monsignor Immanuel Bushu said all these in his homily which is still ongoing today at the Regina Pacis Cathedral where the funeral mass of Rev Sob is being observed.

“Father Sob was with two other people in his car when he was shot at close range with a silencer gun. Where are these people who were with him? Fr. Sob did not die in a crossfire.” The bishop lamented.

We at BaretaNews holds it that, La Republique Du Cameroun Forces have been actively engaged in killing Southern Cameroonians including men of God who have become targets lately. It beats our imagination why the regime will target and kill Father Sob. Of course we know who are the owners of AKs and silencers.

The words from Bishop Bushu goes to directly shame Francophone Bishops who just yesterday on August 7th, 2018 issued a statement congratulating Biya’s regime forces for maintaining order while claiming that the Southern Cameroons self defense forces whom they called as “secessionists” were the ones doing terror. Now we see the separation of the Church itself.

May his soul rest in peace.
