Interim Government of Ambazonia Extends Invitation to All Ambazonians & Revolutionary Leaders for Consultations in USA
The Acting President of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia, H.E Dr. Sako Samuel Ikome, has sent out a national invitation to all Southern Cameroonians/Ambazonians and key Leaders of Liberation Groups, for an “All Ambazonia Consultative Council (AACC)” scheduled for August 18th and 19th, 2018
The invitation letter which is dated July 27, 2018 with reference number PD-FRA 070/18, reads as follow:
“All Southern Cameroonian/Ambazonian Stakeholders and friends of Ambazonia are invited to a global Consultative Council, code named “All Ambazonia Consultative Council” on August 18th and 19th to hold in the USA. Location will be disclosed to leaders individually. To be inclusive, deliberations shall be in two parts:
PART I: First Day August 18th. Will be a global telecast for thousands of Southern Cameroonian/Ambazonian Stakeholders and Friends of Ambazonia worldwide, who cannot travel to the US but are invited to make their voices heard, focusing on The Modalities of Separation of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia from The Republic of Cameroun. Leaders will recommend and vote on a Final Communique based on global inputs.
PART II: Second Day August 19th. Will be highly restricted to Leaders of Liberation Groups, Civil Society,
Episcopal Communities, and Human Rights Activists. They will talk about Unity and Collaboration, sign a Unity Declaration, and present a Joint Statement concerning our proposed Terms of Separation after the declaration of the restoration of our statehood of the former British Southern Cameroons /Federal Republic of Ambazonia.”
Apart from the fact that the invitation is open to all Southern Cameroonians/Ambazonians – that’s both Federalists and Restorationists, the following leaders have been individually and collectively invited:
- Leader of the AGC, Dr. Cho Ayaba
- Leader of SCYL, Dr. Ebenezar Akwanga
- Leader of ROA, HRH Fon Gorji Dinka
- Leader/Representative: ASC
- Leader of MORISC, Mr. Boh Herbert
- Leaders of Civil Society, Mola Njoh Litumbe & Dr. Simon Munzu
- Leader of Catholic Episcopal Community, Cardinal Christian Tumi
- Leader of Human Rights Community: Barrister Agbor Balla
- Leader of Ambazonia Pastor’s Network: Pastor Victor Mbah
The Acting President further states in the invitation that; the AACC telecast is an open event and is subject to Registration, which is currently going on in the website: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/all–southerncameroonsambazoniaconsultative–council–tickets–48501235501?ref=estw
The invitation for the consultative assembly is coming after a group of Southern Cameroons religious leaders led by the retired Christian Cardinal Tumi, the Synod Clerk of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroun and leaders of the Ambazonian Muslim community, met in the economic capital of the colonial master La Republic du Cameroun (LRC) two days ago, and convened what they called the Anglophone General Conference (AGC). According to the clergy men, the Conference which is scheduled for 29th and 30th August 2018 is to discuss the issues at stake in the ongoing war with colonial Yaounde, and prepare a team for a possible dialogue in relation to the conflict.
The said conference has however received a lot of backlash from Southern Cameroonians/ Ambazonians, for the following reasons: It is being organized in Buea, the capital of Ambazonia, by a die heart Federalist Dr. Simon Munzu who doesn’t believe in a free Ambazonia. This means that all restoration leaders will not be able to attend because of the determination of the colonial dictator to assassinate all Ambazonian frontline leaders.
The conference is expected to take place in Buea on the 29th and 30th of August, 2018, one month to the colonial Presidential elections which the colonial president Paul Biya desperate want to organized in Ambazonia and consolidate his colonial kingship in both territories of the Cameroons. Ambazonians therefore see the said conference in Buea as a leeway for Mr. Biya to come in and organized the sham elections to enthrone himself again as the slave master over Ambazonia once.
The wisdom of the Interim Government to schedule the Consultative Council meeting before the AGC in Buea and its decision to make it inclusive by inviting all the representatives of Ambazonias whether Federalists or restorationists, is worth praising. It is evident that majority of Ambazonians want to recover their lost country from the colonial master. The consultative meeting in the USA will therefore be an opportunity to make the stand of majority of Ambazonians across the globe known concerning the AGC of August 29th and 30th in Buea.
Ambazonians had long waited for such a meeting of all liberation leaders, which had not been forth coming due to disagreements and dichotomy in revolutionary opinions by the different revolutionary leaders and groups. The summoning of the AGC by the religious leaders two days a go has therefore acted as an advantage to the revolution as it will now bring all the leaders together, to chat a common course for the revolutionary journey. After all, everybody all this while has been heading to Buea, though in different revolutionary trains and captains.
It is therefore time to use one train and a captain at a time, supported by able assistants, in order to avoid delays, traffic and confusion on the way to freedom.

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
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.
