What Lesson Has Ambazonians & Leaders Learn from the Action of Comrade Milton Taka?

The recent restructuring of the cabinet of the Interim Government of Ambazonia by the Acting President (AP), Dr. Sako Samuel Ikome, saw the dropping of the vibrant and eloquent Comrade Milton Taka, from the position of Acting Vice President. It is believed that comrade Milton was relieved as a result of the lack of trust from the AP, considering his supposed militancy in the newly established controversial Southern Cameroons Congress of the People (SCCOP) in South Africa, which has received a lot of disapproval from a good number of Ambazonians.

However, the reaction of the former Acting Vice President after being sacked from his position, has exposed him as a revolutionary comrade with high level political maturity, sagacity and servant leadership potentials. Mr. Taka’s reaction sends a clear lesson to Ambazonians that; in a revolution like this, you must not only serve when you are at the head of leadership or a member of the interim government.

It is important to note that before being nominated Acting Vice President, Comrade Milton, apart from his full involvement in the Amba revolutionary movement of Southern Africa, served the revolution as the fire spitting SCACUF Governing Council Spokesman for Africa and the Under Secretary of State for Communication. He was nominated Acting Vice president after the kidnap of the President, Sissiku Ayuk-Tabe and some of his cabinet members in Nigeria.

In his thank you letter to the 8 million Ambazonians and especially the leaders, Comrade Milton reminds Ambazonians and leaders of the revolution of the need to jealously hold and guard the mantle of activism at all times, which comes from the people. This should be done by keeping the watch words of honesty, revolutionary discipline, sacrifice and selflessness, gratitude, responsibility and accountability.

“I have been a very principled and committed activist and leader and that I will remain until we get to Buea and beyond. I remain a diehard Ambazonian soldier standing against the suppression and oppression of our people by the terrorist occupier. No one should wait to only act when they are in leadership; every effort by all counts. I extend gratitude to you all that continue to do your best to get every single Ambazonian join us and play a critical part to fast track our move to Buea. I thank you all who worked diligently with me as honest soldiers and leaders of our people.” He said


By every leadership standard, revolutionary antecedents, and his professional and revolutionary credentials, Mr. Taka deserves to be within the revolutionary leadership circles. But haven’t been sacked by the AP for a more trusted hand, Mr. Taka understands that there are many Ambazonians like him with similar backgrounds and skills who can even serve better in his position but haven’t had the privilege to do so.

In a revolution like ours where the inability of different front line leaders to reach a common ground of collaboration has been due to the tussle for who controls what, Comrade Taka’s thank you letter sends a basic leadership lesson:

The privilege to lead, pull strings or to be in control of the people, cannot be gotten by might and power or because we are the most qualified and outstanding. It is a privilege that comes through the unmerited favour of the Supreme Creator and the overall approval of the masses – in this case the Ambazonian people.

If all Ambazonians and leaders could understand this natural principle of leadership emergence and develop respect for each other, knowing that every one has something reasonable to offer or contribute in the revolution, with every effort geared towards a free Ambazonia and its suffering masses, then there would have long been a done deal of collaboration and synergy, with very little frictions.

Are Ambanders and the leaders in particular ready to learn this lesson and jealousy protect the revolution for the sake of the people who are victims of Mr. Paul Biya’s genocide? Let your conscience answer the question for the good of Ambazonia and for Ambazonians.

    What is it about this Milan that some still refuse to see that he is a liability? It is unfortunate that Mr. Taka will allow himself to be a casualty of the excesses of Milan.
    Whatever the case Mr. Taka you are a true hero.
    Stay Bless.

    If the IG is for the people and by the people, then its future will depend on the people not on the sentiments of of “some people”. SCCOP is an association and those who want to be part of it register as members I suppose. If you are not a member, why should you like it or hate it? What survey shows that the amberlanders you claim to disapprove sccop are aware of its purpose of existence? Don’t distract us with street discussions.

    The IG came to being through the creative art of Milan and a good host of others. Aim was to rally all Ambalanders to face the common enemy, greed and desire for power and money is the bloccage to such a lofty idea that was supported by many of us. Milan is as asset to Ambazonians and a thread to those who use the struggle for personal financial gains.

    let us challenge ourselves to grow and be factual, scientific and forthright.
    The behaviour of Milton is very mature and that is what we expected from the so call frontline leaders who have sponsored a worldwide campaign to blackmail and destroy each other because of their personal interest while our people are dying on the ground.

    No matter what the hell is going on, we shall never turn back. Every Ambazonian is an asset and we simply need to create the right space for everyone to act appropriately.
