It’s now a normalcy for total shut down of all socioeconomic activities in the Southern and Northern Counties of Southern Cameroons. From business premises, to transport agencies and social gatherings, everyone seems to be of the alert of the respect of what is popularly known as ‘country Sunday’ or ghost towns in the two counties.
Just like the past three weeks, Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays are largely ghost towns days in Southern Cameroons. The civil disobedience is a tool to attract international attention on the grievous and heinous activities perpetrated by la république du Cameroun on the people of Southern Cameroons. This show of solidarity and goodwill comes amid intense pressure and campaigns put forward by our freedom fighters abroad, combing one international bureau to the other, to restore the statehood of Southern Cameroons.
From Buea, through Limbe, Kumba, Mamfe, Bamenda, Nkambe, Kumbo, and what have you, the steam remains the same; the people of Southern Cameroons are resolute for a change. Even the detractors and Cameroun’s agents who pose around to bribe and woo the people to the gangsta regime, keep on failing repeatedly as the wind of change blowing across the minds of the people resist all temptations.
La République Agents Backing Out
Because of the strong resolve and determination of the people of Southern Cameroons to resist all activities of la république and the institution of ghost towns, the gangster government had devised cosmetic measures to repress the people in succumbing to pressure. The measures include but not limited to 3 months of internet shut down, arbitrary arrests, deflation, and the closure of business premises that respect ghost towns. Unfortunately, the people of Southern Cameroons had made up their minds long before now, to pursue this struggle until the end. Ghost towns campaigns amplified even more, until the point where la république resulted to dialogue. Regrettably, the few beggars whom the gangster regime bribed to woo the people to their side, failed, hence, causing the gangster regime to whack its tail in shame.
For some time now, the ghost towns and other civil disobedient activities have intensified, and unperturbed. The gangster regime that seems to have ran out of ideas and strategies are now backing out and leaving the people to their fate. A sneak-peek view across the different towns and cities this September 11, 2017, show demilitarisation of the major isles of different towns and cities of Southern Cameroons.
This should be an additional victory scored by the people of Southern Cameroons. We give all the Glory to God and the people who against all odds remain resolute to see through in the restoration of Southern Cameroons.
