Anglophone General Conference: Dr Munzu Tricked Us, I am Withdrawing My Support- Eric Acha





1st August 2018
Having read Dr. Simon Munzu’s leaked letter to Mr. Biya (especially the recommendations he made) and his ploy to use the planned AAC3 as a gateway to cement his relationship with the evil regime, I hereby publicly withdraw the little support I had for the conference. I had genuinely believed it was a forum for us sons and daughters of the Southern Cameroons to gather and discuss all the differences we have, with the hope of either agreeing to agree or agreeing to disagree on what we as a people want, and taking our recommendations back to our people for approval.

This belief was further strengthen by the interview His Eminence Christian Cardinal Tumi granted a few days ago, in which he clarified the intent of the conference.Unfortunately, the leaked letter to Biya from Dr. Munzu reveals Munzu had a contrary preconceived agenda and some strange belief that Mr Biya can still be trusted to single-handedly resolve this conflict to the satisfaction of everyone, in the absence of other third parties. This is an illusion.

It is not only naive, but it also delineats Dr. Munzu is compleltely out of touch with the realities on the ground and therefore can not be entrusted with the responsibility to speak for the people, not even for “the moderates”.
To think Biya, who has shown so much disdain and a lack of interest in resolving this conflict will suddenly turn around by the read of a letter and act otherwise is a gross misjudgement on his part, and a complete lack of understanding of who Biya is.

Furthermore, with some of the language used in the leaked letter, it is now evidently clear that no effort whatsoever was made to consult with all other stake holders in this conflict, prior to announcing the conference date, another gross mistake on their part.
With this note, I am therefore withdrawing any previous statement or position that could have suggested I was in support of the August Anglophone General Conference (AGC).

I do however, still strongly hold tight to the belief that a broard-base inclusive All Anglophone Conference is needed to discuss our diverse opinions and positions on the current conflict and to chart a way forward.
Let me also take this opportunity to plead with some of our brothers to tone down the rhetorics. People should not be bullied or intimidated into submission for what they do not agree or believe in.

Let there be a freedom of choice and when conditions will permit, all sons and daughters of the Southern Cameroons (and those who have acquired such status through their duration of settlement on the territory) shall determine their destiny through a well organised process supervised by trusted third parties.
Until such time, aluta continua!
E. Acha

    You Mr. Acha, I have learned to not waste my anger on things like your initial response to Dr. Munzu. You call us West Cameroon in most of your write-ups although East Cameroon no longer exist and anglophone in other write-ups. I however respect your stance. What apecifically in Munzu’s announcement of so-called AGC prior knowing what you now know made you to believe him? Look before you leap

    It was foolhardy to even trust a man who for quite sometime now has staked his position as impediment to any talk of reclaiming southern Cameroon statehood. He has acted as his own judge, jury and executioner in deciding who are the minority clamoring for independence, which he says will never see the light of day even without a referendum to allow for the people’s voices to be heard. What then is the purpose of such a gathering, one is tempted to ask, if Munzu has already inscribed in stone it’s outcome?
    Thank God for this era of the 21st century, a far cry from the 60s when our Fonchas and Munas were too naive and gullible, blindly trusting Yaounde.

    Acha, dialogue would entail you losing your fake power and njoh funds. Your stance is very clear, ever since.

    Your name even reminds some of us of some descendants of those who benefited from both systems as ministers, both mum and dad. Today, descendants of such sellouts are known to be very fast in claiming to be saints and angels, meanwhile they have never known the kind of sufferings some kids of CDC laborers like some of us, whose parents have never connived with any system, have gone through.

    Whether you believe in Munzu or not, who cares?

    Ekema is organizing himself in Buea, that trip to Buea is going to be very rough.

    You better fasten your seat belt than run your watery mouth.

    If had to take the reading of Munzu’s letter to Biya for you to awaken to his true intentions, then I’m sorry you’re not worth listening to. By the way, who are you again?

    I read with dismay to hear people like Dr. Munzu still wanna follow the same path Nzo Ekanghaki n his fellows sold us to this francophone regime because they wanted to be ministers. I wanna reiterate to my patriotic fellow Amazonians never to give up the took Mandela 27 relentless years of struggle to dfeat apatheid in south africa, today south africa is a power house for democracy. Thanks to Mr.Mandela. My fellow Ambozonians tough times never last but tough people like you do. Do not heed to the advice of those traitors like Munzu. I advice the Ambazonia power that be never to negotiate anything with Paul biya because it cannot be trusted
