The 31st African Union Summit & Its Eloquent Silence on the Genocide in Ambazonia
The 31st African Union (AU) Summit recently held in in Nouakchott, Mauritania from the 25th of June to 2nd July 2018. At the end of the Summit, 8 resolutions were adopted. Examples of the resolutions include; setting up an African Continental Free Trade, Institutional Reforms of the AU, establishment of an African Union Development Agency, Peace and security in Africa, among others.
On resolution 4 which particularly addressed peace and security in Africa, the assembly reaffirmed its support for the imposition of punitive measures against those obstructing efforts to achieve reconciliation and peace in South Sudan, and the need to take major steps towards the restoration of permanent peace in other conflict-stricken countries, Libya, Ethiopia/Eritrea, Somalia, and Nigeria.
From the happenings in the Cameroons in the last two years, coupled with numerous calls by the African Commission on Human and People’s Rights and other Pan African Human rights Organizations for an AU position on the matter, the revolutionary conflict in Ambazonia, was highly expected to be on the agenda.
But interestingly and suspiciously too, nothing is mention in the resolutions about the Cameroons. A clear indication that the conflict was nowhere to be found on the agenda of the assembly. And so, from the beginning to the end of the Summit, nothing was mentioned about the ongoing genocide currently being perpetuated by the colonial regime of La Republique du Cameroun (LRC).
That was a diplomatic victory for LRC, the colonizer, isn’t it? The colonial President and blood sucker Paul Biya, had tactically boycotted the Summit, raising questions on whether he wasn’t acting an already prepared script that warranted him to stay away, so that his presence wouldn’t raise eyebrows among other member states why the issue wasn’t on the agenda.
If this is actually what played out, then fingers must be pointed at the AU Commission Chair, Chadian born Moussa Faki and the French President Emmanuel Macron, who attended the Summit. The French conspiracy against Ambazonia is already evident and so conspiring with a Chadian born AU Commission Chair to further frustrate the revolutionary course is possible.
Chad, where the AU Commission’s chairman comes from is an oversea French Province and has repeatedly provided military support to the colonial regime against Ambazonnia. There is no doubt therefore that the AU Commission Chair could have been successfully lobbied and corrupted to keep the Cameroons out of the 31st AU Summit agenda.
The silence of the chairman of the African Union, and President of Rwanda, Paul Kagame, in the midst of this quack mire, a man who should know better, is also very suspicious and worrisome. In the midst of the current growing genocide by LRC and the threats to exterminate the Southern Cameroons people, President Paul Kagame should be the last African Head of State to be eloquent in silence.
The African Union may be trying to provide France and the colonial regime with another opportunity to try their new diabolic strategies to stabilize their colony of Ambazonia and maintain control over their people.
Unfortunately, these colonialists are mistaken. The people have risen and are ready to die for Ambazonia. No amount of French conspiracy and connivance with AU diplomatic institutions against the people of Southern Cameroons can stop the revolution.
The people of Ambazonia have taken total responsibility of their destinies and they are determined to ensure that they will this revolution to the direction they so desire. NO COLONIAL STATE OR INSTITUTION can determine the future of the Ambazonian people. NOT in this 21st century where the android generation is in charge.
