United States Embassy Again Says Ambazonia is not a Safe Place for its Citizens at the Moment.
The Embasssy of the United States of America in Yaounde, the capital of French Cameroon, has again warned its Citizens not to travel to Ambazonia, except for very essential missions. In a security alert issued today November 23, 2018, the Embassy notes that; the level of violence in the Ambazonian territorial space continues to increase as U.S citizens have been victims of violent crimes in recent weeks. The embassy says they have very limited means to assure the security of US citizens travelling to Ambazonia.
According to the Embassy, the violence has led to the closure, inaccessibility and severe understaffing of many medical facilities in the territory. Consequently, its ability to provide emergency services to U. S citizens in the war torn country is extremely limited.
This is about the fourth time the U.S embassy is issuing a security travel warning to its Citizens who may want to travel to Ambazonia, since the beginning of the present conflict. The latest alert is coming weeks after French Cameroun terrorist forces shot dead a U.S Baptist missionary, Charles Truman Wesco, in Bambui, Northern Zone of Ambazonia. Also recently, a U.S husband and wife were abducted by gun men in Buea, the Capital of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia, and were released after some days in captivity.
The security alert from the Embassy is also coming at a time where many Ambazonian Americans and other American citizens may be considering coming home to spent the Christmas holidays with their families while others plan to come for spiritual retreats and touristic reasons. However, with this warning, it is very evident that even courageous citizens who were initially planning to visit Ambazonia during this period may now be shielding their plans.
As the Ambazonian Independence war declared by the rogue dictator of French Cameroun, Paul BIYA, continues to claim the lives of many innocent civilians and fighters from both sides, the U.S states has consistently maintained its call for broad based negotiations between the conflicting parties without preconditions. Just a few days behind, it was former Assistant Secretary of State for f African Affairs, Herman Cohen, who called on both sides to approach the current Assistant Secretary of state for African Affairs to begin mediation between the two, as the conflict clearly appears unwinnable by either side. The blood sucking dictator Paul BIYA, has however given a deaf ear to the many advises and calls for negotiations from the international community.
Don’t the U.S government thinks it’s time to directly intervene to rescue the innocent masses being massacred by Paul BIYA’s terrorist forces and forced French Cameroun to the negotiations table? The Ambazonian revolutionary leadership had earlier given the Donald Trump administration the green light to unilaterally intervene, if the U.N is not living up to its responsibilities of resolving the conflict, which directly falls under its jurisdiction.
For how long will the U.S Continue to issue these security travel warnings to its citizens as the conflict persists?
