Ghost Town Remix in Ambazonia as Colonial Mayor Sets Municipality on Fire & Disappears

Restoration forces across Ambazonia and especially in the capital Buea, on Monday proved to the colonial government and especially the colonial administration in Buea that gone are the days when they use to have control over the Ambazonian people by moving around on ghost town days and sealing shops and other business premises that respected the revolutionary course.

At the beginning of the Ambazonian revolution, operation ghost towns days were usually very serene and quiet as the people, at the request of the revolutionary leadership, voluntarily shutdown all businesses, deserted the streets and stayed in their homes. It was the most peaceful means of protest against the colonial regime that has refused for the past two years to yield to the demands of the Ambazonian people.

Angered and frustrated by the weekly boycotts, the colonial administrators decided to infringe on the rights of people to peaceful protest, by using repressive measures on those who decided to join boycotts. Such measures include among others; the sealing of shops found locked on ghost town days and the introduction of other counter measures like the acquisition of municipal taxis among others.

A good example of such colonial administrators has been the provocative colonial mayor of Buea, Patrick Ekema, who for these years has remained defiant to the objectives of the revolution and will of the majority Ambazonian. He has repeatedly boasted that he was in charge of Buea by sealing off shops of citizens that were not opened on Ghost down days, and only unsealed them after the payment of exorbitant amounts.

However, if the events of Monday July 9, are anything to go by, then it must be said that the entry of restoration forces into the cities is a clear message to the colonialists and their agents that it is no longer business as usual. Since they have decided to repress a peaceful revolution with force, they should be ready for a counter force.

And so, after the provocative utterances of the colonial Mayor that he, as the custodian of the economic life of Buea had not declared any ghost town, the stage was set for a battle on the said ghost town day (which was yesterday Monday July 9, 2018). Colonial forces on Sunday, had even gone about distributing flyers announcing that there was not going to be any ghost town on Sunday.

On Monday, the usual ghost town days, the colonial Mayor who had boasted that he was going to supervise the anti-ghost town activities, was nowhere to be found. He had set the town ablaze and disappeared to an unknown destination. He was spotted at the airport boarding a flight to an unknown destination.

While on the ground, the town was dead silent. Restoration forces who moved around to enforced the ghost clashed heavily with the colonial forces in Muea, Mile 18, 17, 16 and the Molyko neighbourhoods. By the end of the day, 7 colonial forces were reported neutralized by restoration forces and 2 civilians shot dead by the frustrated colonialists. The Mondial Bus Agency, that has been noted for not respecting ghost towns had be pay the price with four of its buses.

In Kumba, a clash between restoration forces and colonial terrorists left 2 colonial terrorists neutralized and four citizens shot by the colonial terrorist. The frustration and desperation of not being able to target any of the “Amba boys” let the colonialists to frameup the innocent citizens killed.  They decided to place den guns on their dead bodies as evidence to the fact that they were shot in arms. Unfortunately for them, a lie can only travel a very shot distance before the truth is uncovered.

In Bamenda, restoration forces, went out in Bambui, ensuring that the ghost town was strictly enforced. Even the clash with colonial terrorist forces did not stop their determination to enforced the boycotts.

With the events of yesterday across Ambazonia, it is evidently clear that Mondays are no longer days to play with. As the revolution takes another dimension in the days ahead, Ambazonians should all inform their love ones in the homeland to be watchful of their movements, so as to stay away from the provocation and indiscriminate shooting by colonial forces. The revolution is reaching its climax and the end point is nothing else but freedom for Ambazonia.

    It is said that Ekema deliberately provoked Amba boys to get life threatenings from them. He is going now to use that to apply for asylum in Europe. His visa application for US was denied last month.

        WHY DOES THIS FOOL WHO CALLS HIMSELF ‘bamenda boy’ always saying ‘I am from southwest’. WHO CARES, YOU IDIOT? If truly you are from southwest, which you are not, you must be one of those rare stupid ones with watery brains.

          @ Saa note that Bamenda boy is an anglophone. All your bullshit of calling any sensible anglophone who does not support your foolishness, LRC agent, Bulu, bami, bassa or a Biya supporter doesn’t hold anymore. Personally, I am the wise one from Santa. You know how we whooped your ass when you tried your foolishness in our village. You are living well with your family in another man’s country and sending your thugs to go and destabilize anglophone regions. Read my lips. Very soon the anglophones will be the ones attacking you not the Biya BIRs. Madness of the century.

Cameroon’s 85-Year-Old President Wants a 7th Term as Massacres Grow

Breitbart News Network  is a far-right syndicated American news, opinion and commentary news founded in mid-2007 by conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart. It is widely read in America with over 45 million monthly readers. It forms one of those tabloits that elected President Donald Trump and it is daily read by Trump himself. In this richly written article, Breibart did ,not shy away from calling out the so-called Anglophone Cameroon by its real name as Southern Cameroons, it also shames and mocks Mr. Biya 7th term run for office as massacres grows in the Cameroons. BaretaNews brings you the article in full. Read on

 

The U.S. State Department on Monday condemned the release of a video appearing to show soldiers in Cameroon killing a woman and infant, among others.  As President Paul Biya, 85, prepares to run for a seventh term as president, foreign governments and human rights organizations are increasingly sounding the alarm on growing violence between French and English speakers in the country.
Biya announced that he would seek a seventh term as president on Friday, having clocked 36 years as the nation’s head of state in which most of the country, but not those in government, have experienced a significant economic decline. Should Biya win the election, he will be 92 years old by the time his latest term ends. Another significant issue with Biya’s rule is that he does not live in Cameroon for much of the year, preferring Switzerland to his own country. The New York Times noted this week that Biya has spent 4.5 of his 36 years in office abroad, even though his country faces major economic challenges, regular terrorist attacks on the part of neighboring Nigeria’s Boko Haram, and growing strife between francophone and anglophone Cameroonians.

Joint Commanders of Restoration Forces Issue Ultimatum to Ambazonian MPs in La Republique du Cameroun

Joint Commanders of Restoration Forces Issue Ultimatum to Ambazonian MPs in La Republique du Cameroun

BaretaNews has now confirmed a Joint declaration by commanders of Ambazonian Restoration forces in the homeland, requesting Ambazonian Members of Parliament (MPs) represented in the National Assembly of La Republique du Cameroun to resign and walk out of the foreign parliament. The declaration which was done in Kumba, economic headquarters of the Southern Zone of Ambazonia on July 14, 2018, gives the MPs an ultimatum of seven days to quit the colonial assembly and wait for when they’ll be requested to reconvene in Buea.

BaretaNews has been able to talk with 8 commanders on the ground and 5 confirmed being aware of and were part of those who came out with the declaration/ultimatum. 3 others however noted that, they weren’t part of those who signed the declaration but they however agree and abide with the content, as it seek to foster the revolution and save the lives of the Ambazonian people.

According to the commanders, the blood of innocent Ambazonian citizens cannot continue to flow on the streets of Ambazonia, while the so-called MPs, who claim to be the people’s representatives sit and watch without any major action. Worst among these MPs are those of the CPDM who have completely sold their consciences and have deliberately sealed their mouths. They are therefore called upon to hold themselves responsible for whatever befalls them after the expiration of the ultimatum.

A group of these colonial MPs such as Honorable Joseph Mbah Ndam, Hon. Fusi Namukong, Hon. Joseph Wirba among many others had last year made public statements to the effect that they were resigning or pulling out from the colonial parliament. Among these group of MPs, only the fire spitting Hon. Wirba meant what he said, as he has not been seen anywhere around the colonial parliament ever since his declaration.

The others had since returned to the Yaoundé glass house, making many failed attempts to get the conflict discussed in the lawmaking chamber. Their voices have been deliberately ignored for the past two years. While the US Congress, the Nigerian, German, British and even the EU Parliaments have all discussed the conflict and requested for an inclusive dialogue on the root causes of the conflict, the matter has remained a taboo subject in the occupier’s house of assembly.

On the September 22, 2017 and October 1, 2017, the Ambazonian people went out with peace plants requesting for their rights and pleading with these MPs to learn from history and walk out of the colonial assembly in order to shortened the revolution. Unfortunately, the people were deceived by these MPs.

At this juncture where the colonial regime has unleased its war machinery at the people, maiming and killing innocent civilians, it has become more than expedient for these MPs to leave the colonial institution or face the anger of the people, whom they claim to represent. Like the Joint Commanders declared, it is now an issue of BLOOD and IRON. No individual shall be allowed again to legitimize this act of colonialism and toil with the lives and destinies of more than 8 million Ambalanders.

 

Below is the full version of the declaration.

Declaration of the Joint Commanders of all Ambazonia Liberation Forces to MPs & Senators of our Land

We, Commanders of all units of liberation forces affiliated to all Ambazonian organizations in this Southern Cameroons struggle, have this July 14 2018 solemnly made this declaration and we want all those concerned to take note that until all of us are killed, we shall implement this engagement, so please take us seriously as take the public as witness that we warned you before acting.

Everyone has seen that for almost two years today, some people who call themselves our elected representatives have failed to listen to us who they claim elected them to Parliament and to the Senate. We therefore understand that truly they were never meant to represent us, that only Paul Biya, their families and their stomachs matter to them.

We also want to observe, that on the 22 of September 2017, some of them took us for their fools by claiming they were resigning and afterwards, we saw them dancing in Parliament to earn their salaries. Of course, they can all agree with us today that the Parliament of Pa Paul Biya can never discuss our problem. That is why we have come to the decision below.

All Parliamentarians and Senators that hail from Ambazonia have exactly 7 days from this July 14, 2018 to present their official resignation letters to the press and everywhere else and then wait for an official program to convene in Buea to start the Ambazonian House of Assembly under our protection. Beyond this date, anyone who would not have complied WILL be considered an armed terrorist soldier of LRC and shall be dealt with the way we have been dealing with them. No political party is exempted and this decision shall not be appealed. We simply pray that these greedy people do not tempt us, else what the terrorist BIR of Yaounde did to one family in Widikum will befall them. The time for games is over. Now is the time for BLOOD AND IRON to determine the course of our struggle.

We are reiterating that after July 21, no one should blame us for what will happen.

It is our wish that all will comply and on time. Meantime, we urge the following women: Emma Lafon, Regina Mundi, Monjoa Lifaka, Agnes Ntube, Ngala Esther and Meyali Meboka who we believe know the pains of child birth, but who have been quiet as our brothers and sisters are being slaughtered to take the lead, else no one in their lineage WILL EVER LIVE to say what would have happened to them.

We have spoken and so shall it be.

Done in Kumba on the 14 July 2018.

The Joint Commanders of Ambazonia Liberation Forces.

Continuous Targeted Killings in Southern Cameroons Under the Silent Watch of those that Matter

Targeted Killings

Continuous Targeted Killings in Southern Cameroons Under the Silent Watch of those that Matter

The targeted killing of young men, women and children in Southern Cameroons /Ambazonia by the terrorist colonial forces of La Republique du Cameroun have intensified in the last week with the ruthless massacre of 15 Ambazonians in Tiben, Batibo, a brother to the Fon of Mbiame in Bui and five students of the University of Bamenda, all in the Northern Zone of Ambazonia, making a total of at least 21 executions within the just ended week.

At least, 28 innocent Ambazonians were also shot in Kumba, Bombey (along the road the Buea-Kumba road), Muyuka, and Muea by the terrorist forces from Yaoundé. Almost 20 elderly people sustained gun shot injuries. Just early this morning of Sunday July 15, 2018 the terrorist forces were firing into homes beside the road in Mile 16 Buea, targeting civilians in their sleep.

All these massacres are taking place under the silent watch of all those who matter at the international scene, and at a time the colonial terrorist claims to be preparing a so-called humanitarian plan for the affected people of Ambazonia. In trying to defend its massacre of innocent civilians, the colonial terrorist claimed they were responding to attacks from Ambazonian restoration forces.

They boasted to have neutralize 6 of the Ambazonian restoration forces but all evidences point to the fact that these were innocent citizens, some of whom were shot right in front of and inside their own houses. In some cases, locally made guns were placed on the executed bodies to take pictures as prove. The specific case of a mentally deranged young man executed in Kumba and his corpse framed up with a den gun is conspicuous.

The Center for Human Rights and Democracy in Africa (CHRDA) headed by Barrister Dr. Nkongho Felix Agbor-Balla, confirmed these massacres with a detailed report on the cases in Batibo and the University of Bamenda. According to the CHRDA report, the terrorist soldiers of La Republique got news that there was a training camp of the Restoration forces in Tiben village of Batibo Sub Division and they targeted the locality with the aim of eliminating members of the camp.

“They entered the village at about 7a.m. on Thursday morning while the villagers were preparing to go and sell their goods and merchandise at the Widikum weekly market, a neighboring locality to Tiben ​. Failing to meet the ADF, they started shooting sporadically in the air causing panic and fear in the villagers. In the midst of the commotion, some of the villagers escaped to the bush. A notable and shocking scenario was the killing of a teacher Mr. Tebit Evans Chick ​ and 7 members of his family.” A section of the report said.

The 15 massacred include 7 men, 5 women and 3 children (all girls), while one of the victims identified as Mrs Abang Mary was severely injured.

On the execution of five students of the University of Bamenda, CHRDA investigations revealed that:

“…on Wednesday night when the students were in their hostels. Neighbors, students, also say that night; they saw military men ordering students to come out of their hostels (The name of the hostel gotten was Elisam Hostel situated around the police station) which they did. They were asked to first present their identity cards, which they did. Later ordered to sit on the floor and later on asked to stand and walk towards the soldiers who out rightly hot and killed these students (execution style). Early the next morning, they went to see what had happen, but unfortunately, they couldn’t find their fellow mates at the hostel.”

“That morning, it was discovered at the Regional Hospital in Bamenda that five (5) bodies (all young men) were brought in the hospital without any identification. Parents of BILLY KARI, one of the victims, were contacted by the students of the hostel on the happenings of yesternight. The parents came and searched for him everywhere, they went to the police station but on getting there, were told to go look for him in the mortuary. On getting to the hospital, there discovered and identified that one of the bodies brought to the hospital without any identification is their son- Billy Karri, a student studying Urban Planning, in the University of Bamenda.”

Despite the fact that the truth about these massacres is already in the national and international media, the colonial terrorist regime has not stopped in its diabolical plans to hide their crimes. They have resorted to forcing the families of the massacred victims at gun point to sign undertakings at the mortuaries, stating that their family members were killed by Ambazonian restoration forces.

BaretaNews continues to call on the global community and those responsible for the prevention of this ongoing genocide to sit up to their responsibilities. The conspiracy of silence is proving to be testimony of compliance to these targeted killings and it is high time men and women of good conscience in the world rose up to their responsibilities and stop this carnage.

Ambazonians continue to state that the colonial terrorist regime doesn’t have the monopoly of violence. The people have already been pushed to the wall enough. In the past months, they have through the Ambazonia Restoration forces been defending themselves against all odds. However, the continuous silence of the world is forcing the people to go beyond just defending themselves but also going on the offensive.

Enough is Enough. The bloody regime can never succeed in using force to continuously enslave Ambazonians after 57 years. Never again, not with this revolutionary enlightened generation. The people have chosen to fight till the last man standing.
