Ambazonia Leadership Requested Swiss Mediation

 

 

Ambazonia Leadership Requested Swiss Mediation

The Interim Government group faction led by its leader Dr. Samuel Sako sometime in December 2018 wrote a letter to the Swiss Government requesting the Swiss to help mediate between the Republic of Cameroun and the Federal Republic of Ambazonia.

In April this year 2019, the Ambazonia Governing Council led by its own leader Dr. Ayaba Cho Lucas sent a letter as well to the Swiss Government requesting their mediation between both nations, I have learned. This came through their own advocacy I was told.

But what I can report is that on 13th December 2018, communication from the source stated clearly the intention of Swiss Government via their Ambassador in Yaounde to begin this pre-talks process and the Swiss Government particularly requested the involvement of Dr. Ebenezer D. M. Akwanga and Dr. Ayaba Cho Lucas. I am not sure these two were informed in December but what I know is that one of the two was cornered (I will keep the name off for now, not important) by IG top brass to begin the process.

The Swiss Government in their recent reaction and public statement rightly said both parties (Cameroun and Ambazonia) had requested them to intervene and this is true.
What we do not know was what was/is peculiar with the Swiss acting as the mediator that caused both Sako IG camp and AGovC to request their mediation. What we do not know yet is if Cameroun did also requested the Swiss Government to mediate. Cameroun has been silent since then strangely but has responded to the BAS protest against Paul Biya in Geneva.

Be it as it may, we are at this stage, we must not run away from the process. We must own the process and owning the process means all movements, all group leaders come together in a private conclave and put in place an agreed team of would be experts negotiators for any eventual negotiation in the future while requesting the basic minimum conditions such as release of prisoners after Cameroun must have made her intention publicly clear to engage. On our part, while we continue to fund ground zero, we must be ready and the time is NOW.

    The CAMEROONIAN DEFENCE AND SECURITY FORCES have MOPPED OR WIPED THE FLOOR WITH AMBAZONIA TERRORISTS AND THEIR SO-CALLED LEADERS IN THE DIASPORA. THEREFORE, NO negotiations WITH AMBAZONIA TERRORIST GROUP.

    How SHAMEFUL, HUMILIATING, and ACUTELY EMBARRASSING for factional leaders of AMBAZONIA TERRORIST GROUP at having to GO CAP IN HAND (or go hat in hand) to the Swiss Embassy in Yaoundé to beg for negotiation via mediation. The Ambazonia Terrorist Group is now in a SNAFU, in a confused or chaotic state, and DOES NOT STAND A CHANCE. The plan of an “independent ambazonia” has not happened in the way it should!!! A bunch of BUMBLING IDIOTS AND POLITICAL MISFITS. As a result of the spectacular successes of the BIRs on ground zero (GZ), the Ambazonia Terrorist Group is IN TATTERS. Begging and Crying for mediation because the Cameroonian Defence and Security Forces are vanquishing the ambazombie terrorists on GZ will not be HEEDED by Mr Biya’s Government. In less than 3 months, the Government will declare victory. Thus, there is no need for negotiations and mediation. The REBELLION has been CRUSHED, but the MOPPING-UP OPERATIONS MAY TAKE 2-3 MONTHS. The BIRs are mopping-up any remaining resistance or opposition.

    It would be a colossal mistake for President Paul Biya and his Government to negotiate or dialogue with ambazonia terrorist separatist organization. It is sacrilege to even think of such a move, for such a move will be anathema to the vast majority of Anglophone Cameroonian Patriots who have borne the brunt of ambazonia savageries. It will be a betrayal, which will surely open up a pandora’s box for more opportunistic radical armed terrorist groups to emerge. Terrorists or armed separatists, whatever the stripe, are to be annihilated if they refuse to lay down their arms or drop their guns, just as President Ahmadou Ahidjo did with the maquisards. As an Anglophone Cameroonian Patriot, I agree, and I stand with the majority of Anglophone Cameroonian Patriots that the Government of Cameroon must not negotiate or dialogue with ambazonia terrorists.

    President Ahmadou Ahidjo annihilated the maquisards and vanquished the Maquis, a terrorist organization like ambazonia. He did not negotiate or dialogue with maquisards! And by routing (decisively defeating) the maquis, President Ahidjo ensured that Cameroon remained One-And-Indivisible under his tutelage or guardianship, and that is the One And Indivisible Cameroon he handed down to President Biya.

    Civilised societies do not negotiate or dialogue with terrorists. No one negotiated with Al Qaeda of Osama Bin Laden, ISIS of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Boko Haram led by Abubakar Shekau, al-Shabaab in Somalia, etc. Those saying that there is no military solution to the ambazonia madness, are dead wrong! Sri Lanka is archetypal of military defeat of a terrorist organization (Tamil Tigers) akin to ambazonia. Mr Mahinda Rajapaksa was elected as the President of Sri Lanka in 2005. He tried to negotiate with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) that was commonly known as the Tamil Tigers ( a terrorist separatist group), but it was a fool’s errand. The aim of this terrorist group was to secure an independent state of Tamil Eelam because they alleged that the Sinhalese people who were in the majority marginalised the Tamils, just like the ambazonia terrorist group is alleging that the majority Francophone Cameroonians are marginalising the Anglophone Cameroonians. From 2006, the Sri Lankan military launched a ferocious and decisive offensive against the Tamil Tigers, vanquishing it militarily and bringing the entire Sri Lankan territory under government control. President Rajapaksa declared Victory over the Tigers on May 16, 2009, and the LTTE admitted defeat on May 17, 2009. The feared leader of LTTE (Mr Prabhakaran) and his family, and the entire leadership of LTTE were all neutralized. President Biya, this is the type of decisive action we, the majority of Anglophone Cameroonian Patriots, are yearning for. Sisiku and the terrorists on ground zero (GZ) and those in the diaspora have, in all probability, committed treasonous and terrorism acts and deserve to be sentenced to death by the Yaoundé Military Tribunal. If Bishop Albert Ndongmo was sentenced to death for aiding the maquis, then what more of the ambazonia terrorists?

    Mr Biya, negotiating or dialoguing with ambazonia terrorists would be a stab in the back (“murder in the cathedral”), a world of betrayal of the majority Anglophone patriots who have borne the brunt of ambazonia terrorism. Do not negotiate or dialogue with ambazonia terrorist group, for the silent majority will be incensed and you might never regain their goodwill. Act decisively like Mr Ahidjo did for ONE AND INVISIBLE CAMEROON.
