Breaking News: Amba Boys Did Not Attack Sasse College-Issa Tchiroma Lied
I am Mark Bareta. I am a former Biology/Human Biology teacher, Saint Joseph’s College Sasse for two academic years before leaving for further studies.
Later this evening, I read with so much disappointments the lies Issa Tchiroma, Cameroun Communications Minister stated this evening in a Press communique blaming Southern Cameroons Restoration Forces for attacking schools and in the course of his presentation, Tchiroma stated that Sasse college was viciously attacked by Amba boys. CRTV Buea even carried the false narrative. I am aware that schools, churches and hospitals are no go areas. They have to be protected and thus Amba boys have as duty to protect these areas.
As a SOBAN and former Sasse teacher, I had to get to my former colleagues and sources within the college to get the truth because the news is shocking to us. In fact, we are only aware of such so called attack only after Tchiroma made it known. In stead, the truth is that Amba boys offered help and repealed the military because school campuses are supposed to be free of any military forces.
Getting to my former colleagues, all said same story line castigating the lies Tchiroma sent out. One of my former colleagues writes:
“Ok Mark Bareta.This is the truth. Monday 3rd was the official reopening date slated by the government. And they disseminated millitary to all our renown schools to forcely keep guard. Upon the their arrival at the college, the Amba boys got the news that the military has invaded sasse, they were uncomfortable with their presence and decided to come and send them away. So the millitary were the ones who attracted them to Sasse and not them attacking the college. Amba boys never ever attacked the college. Crtv buea reported the contrary last evening
and that alone has scared so many parents”
I am making this public because the government as I warned earlier are using the Southern Cameroons leadership stance on schools non resumption to sabotage the revolution by committing acts and blame it on the revolution. This information narrated here can be verified with Sasse College authorities and staff. As a Christian college, they will say the truth. By the way since Tuesday, Sasse students are in school calmly with no incident.
