AAC III, MY STANCE.

AYAH PAUL ABINE

For reasons impossible to explain naturally, I chose yesterday, July 31, 2018, to state my stance on AAC III. Just as I began writing the date, distress calls came from St Valentine Centre (Orphanage), Buea. I gathered on the spot that armed soldiers had come to the centre menacingly because the inmates were playing in front of their dormitory, shouting… As I sat down to write on my return, sad news was broken to us about the death of my only brother-in-law… I do hope the good Lord will allow me to write to the end this time around.

Since my release from captivity, I have published at least two posts on the absolute need for an AAC III to hold. Both received substantial positive endorsement as gleaned from the hundreds of comments. Before my captivity, I had published several articles in the same direction. It was when it received little attention that I went on to propose the English Cameroon Authority. Records show that the proposal received tremendous support!

The overwhelming opposition to AAC III championed by Cardinal Tumi of recent now is a huge embarrassment. I was convinced that it was understood the objective of the English Cameroon Authority was to create a forum for concertation among Anglophones; and to provide a team for prospective dialogue at the time. If the idea has caught up with the cardinal today whereby he craves that Anglophones come together to chart the way forward, one is at a loss as to the raison d’etre of hostilities.

There is no doubt that one may not agree entirely with the cardinal’s plan of action. Only during the AAC III would Anglophones, by unanimity or in their majority, chart the way forward: whether to trust Mr. President this time around to give him another chance., given his disdain for the Anglophones previously. But is it not only democratic for us to meet and make our points or opinions heard? If not, why does anyone believe that their own opinions are infallible and must be accepted by the others?

That’s why I consider the cardinal’s initiative invaluable, and that it comes at a propitious moment and opportune time! As a matter of fact, we, Anglophones, appear to have lost sight of certain indisputable facts. Anglophones are in two groups in location and in circumstance: those in the diaspora and those at home; those at room temperature and those taking the heat of hostilities. The one group cannot do without the other, lest we favour fragility at the expense of durability; dictatorship instead of democracy.

I am of the considered opinion that there can NEVER be unity of purpose until we have met to agree on the common purpose/goals. Such agreement can only stand the test of time if it emanates from reason rather than from emotion. Reason requires proposal, face to face arguments/debates and consensus or the majority vote. I am at a loss how this can come about otherwise than when we meet.

One would have thought that the contention would have been where to meet rather than whether to meet. At the moment, the diaspora has assumed leadership in monopoly for obvious reason. They have incurred the hostilities of the current dispensation. Obviously, their entry and safety cannot be guaranteed until there has been amnesty. Which is to say the Buea venue or any other within Southern Cameroon/Ambazonia is inappropriate. Nor can the diaspora organize a forum that the internal representatives would freely attend. It is in that light that the cardinal has put forward pre-conditions. Our standing united behind the acceptance of those pre-conditions ought to be the reasonable goal instead of bickering…

If the argument is that the term “Anglophones” is nugatory, what can we say we are? Whether independent or not, we remain Anglohones by definition or by description. Independence or no independence, is it not only normal that, as a people, Anglophones reserve the right to meet as a people to review their wellbeing as a people from time to time? To paraphrase William Shakespeare, what is in a name? Methinks, then, that invoking the point to defeat the search for peace seems utterly facetious…

There is no gainsaying that, during war, there are negotiations for truces, cease-fires, cessations of hostilities… And no war has ever ended without parties sitting at the table. How would we seriously contend that, in our case, it has to be otherwise? If, as the cardinal did suggest, there was the release of those in prison/detention; together with the downing of arms (and the necessary end of bloodshed, even just momentarily); would that alone not be a welcome relief? Do we, in the comfort of our homes, contemplate the inhuman living conditions of our people in refugee camps; in the bushes (forests); in dungeons?… We of the Ayah Foundation feel/live it daily, and we do appreciate what our people are going through…

Above all, no initiative aimed at restoring peace and normalcy ought lightly to be dismissed from emotional inner drives. Our guiding principle should be democratic flexibility: the readiness to accept that the other person has a right to a different opinion. We may never forget that democracy is, in fact, the dissenting voice. Lest we defeat the right to argue that we are different and/or want to be different!

To my mind, AAC III is inevitable! Let us lend Cardinal Tumi our support!

AND SO DO WE HEREBY SUBMIT

    I respectfully disagree with you Justice Ayah on the particular meeting by Cardinal Tumi in connivance with Dr. Munzu (my mouth actual tastes bile just by thinking this name). A meeting of people of former British SC might be necessary, perhaps to please some of you who wasted your productive age kissing Biya’s behind. We are of a different stock and controls our destinies. I don’t blame the old generation for being docile to a fault but I get really upset when we are trying to get out of this mess with just so much from you guys pulling us back. When did Cardinal Tumi ever thought of ACC III before 2017? As we say in the noble Mugaka language, I translate “Cardinal Tumi yi Achuh don finish, make yi wash yi plate find place shidon”

    I reject ACC111 for the simple fact that nothing will come out of any meeting with LRC, hence we need a 3rd Party… UN, EU etc. to negotiate our separation. Dealing with biya is like walking in hungry lion den – biya . I don’t trust lrc because all they want is our blood and resources. ACC1, ACC11 yielded nothing with biya’s lrc. ACC111 will yield nothing!!! DON’T BE FOOLED THE THIRD TIME PLEASE!!!

    Biya the french slave is the architect of all this mess so why is it that we are the one’s now spewing bile at each other? AAC I and AAC II were greeted with scorn by Biya; so what is going to make AAC III different.

    No, No, No and NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO …

    We love you Pa and we will forever respect you for your greatness, nothing can take that away from you.

    They kill us, rape our women, burn the elders alive not because we are not united, not because we have not hold another ACC, not because we do not love them, … . They do all these because it is their nature.
    They have no respect for their own selves or human life. Even if God gives them the whole universe, they will still be destructive. If anyone has not yet understand this, then they will never ever understand it.

    We do not need ACC for the problem is no us or with us, as such we are not going to make our selves the problem. ACC is just to go and fool ourselves, we already know and have seen in flesh and blood all possible outcome.

    We should not do as if ACC is some magical creature somewhere. No, it is not a thing at all. It is just thought, imaginations, phantasies, wishes, in our mind. We the people of Ambazonia are the real thing and we know and have seen with no confusion, all possible outcome.
    No more escapism and mind games. The fundamental problem here is that of the nature of the people in charge of LRC. Their nature is totally out of whack, and only they can fix that, not us. The day they manage to heal themselves or free themselves from their evil nature, then good for them.

    How can we pretend to hold an ACC, expecting it to produce an outcome, when we already know all possible outcome before holding the damn ACC, and even worst, we have already experienced these in flesh and blood.

    We Ambazonians are not that stupid to fool ourselves and not realize it.

    No amount of ACC can change the nature of Biya and his criminal syndicate, and for us, we are living the catastrophic outcome of all the previous AAC right now.

    No matter how long it takes, we will fight.

    NO to AAC I, AAC II, AAC III, AAC IV, AAC V, AAC VI, AAC VII, AAC VIII, … , AACX, … all the way to the end of the universe.

    How many countries were in the world 30 years ago? How many are they now? No amount of low energy from shit-no-whip-lass trolls will stop. 1.2 million East Timorese restored their independence “stolen” by giant 261 million people Indonesia and Ambazonia is doing same. Learn to live with the reality that Ambazonia is the world’s newest free democracy in the making

Kofi Annan: His Death, SCNC, Biya, The West And Ambazonia

Kofi Annan: His Death, SCNC, Biya, The West And Ambazonia.

Kofi Annan, in memoriam

We have received news this morning of the passing away of Kofi Annan, a son of Ghana and Africa, a statesman of the world. We salute the memory of Kofi Annan who personally achieved many things, including recognition as a Nobel Peace laureate in 2001.

Kofi Annan brings up many memories for us. He worked for a negotiated settlement of the Bakassi conflict. Our forerunners in the struggle lobbied him intensely on case of the annexation of Southern Cameroons by La Republique du Cameroun. Mr Annan even visited Cameroun to discuss our situation. His advice to Biya to initiate negotiation failed.

Being a son of Africa, Annan hoped that Paul Biya will work with the SCNC and other groups to adjust the state peacefully and resolve the root cause of the problem. But he left and nothing changed. Biya duped him. Biya promised him that dialogue will ensue and Mr Annan played his own part of the bargain to not criticise LRC much, to give Cameroun the chance to fix its mess. Lai lai to lai lai, nothing happened. Biya pretended to listen. He ignored him. But sadly too, Kofi Annan had failed to learn from his past failure. As Under Secretary General of the UN in charge of peacekeeping operations, Annan had failed to stop the Rwandan genocide, in which 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus were murdered in 100 days. Mr Annan was also in charge when 8,000 Moslems were massacred in a UN safe area by Serbian forces.

Mr Annan was to some extent let down by the West. But he did publicly recognised that he could have done more to prevent those dark moments from occurring in our world.

Fast forward two decades. Successive batches of UN and world leaders have failed to address the case of the Southern Cameroons. Here we are today – in conflict, our people being murdered by troops loyal to the man whom Kofi Annan trusted, our women being raped, a genocide developing in our land, hundreds of thousands of our people displaced.

Biya scammed Kofi. Unfortunately, the story of this bloody struggle would be insincere without stating the obvious failure of the one African who held the office that could have saved our people from this mess and also preserve the husbands of the several women who are now widows on LRC’s side.

But Mr Annan knows the value of independence. Speaking about Ghana’s independence to a group in 2012 in Canada, he declared, “I walked away as a young man believing change is possible, even radical revolutionary change.”

The people of #Ambazonia #SouthernCameroons should take the hint from Mr Annan’s quote above.

As we mourn a great statesman of the world, a son of Africa, the world should seize the opportunity to examine one of the burning issues where they failed to empower Koffi to resolve the annexation of Southern Cameroons Ambazonia by Cameroun which has now turned into conflict and Africa’s fastest growing humanitarian crisis.

Biya duped Kofi. We hope Antonio Guttieres will reflect on this.

The independence of Ambazonia is non negotiable.

Restoration Forces Arrest Extortionists In Bui

BaretaNews sister platform Scandy Media is reporting that Restoration forces in Bui have arrested two notorious suspects for questioning.. Scandy Media mentioned that these two civilians were part of a gang operating in Bui moving from village to village, house to house terrorizing Ambazonians and at the same time collecting guns, huge sums of money, breaking into homes and stealing, threatening and blackmailing the population while addressing themselves as Amba Boys. The arrest of these individuals is part of the huge campaign by the ASC to root out those who have taken advantage of the God ordained revolution.

Scandy Media writes further:

“…The recent village has been Kitiwum precisely in Shukov kale where a family was attacked 2 days ago and a ransom asked if not their home would be set ablaze. Another women still in Kitiwum was attacked and kidnapped until 1 million was collected . Last two weeks we heard of similar incidents in kikaikom, and a week ago was Nseh…Our Restoration forces have been tracking down these groups and Scandy media has been reliably informed that there exist more than two of such groups as well as individuals calling themselves Amba boys.When ASC got the complains, they were obliged to share the self defense code of conduct to let our people know and understand that Ambazonian self defense forces do not kill their people, they protect them, they do not break into people’s homes, nor kidnap. They do not ask for ransom nor oblige people to give. People donate freely to them..”

BaretaNews adds that this phenomenon is seen also in Meme, Fako, Mbonge etc. Some civilians have taken upon themselves to pretend that they are Amba boys (Self Defense Forces), meanwhile they go about harassing the population. Just last week the ASC made known an email and phone numbers for people who are faced with this aspect to contact them so that legitimate self defense groups in that county can be contacted to track down those carrying out these illegal acts. We also understand that Yaounde through Atanga Nji have been using civilians to create fake groups.

It is the position of BaretaNews  that this campaign must intensify in other areas, those caught MUST NOT BE SPARED. The revolution must again be sanitised of these agents of darkness from within and without us. In fact, the upcoming Washington, DC must come out with a white paper that creates a Restoration Police Force amongst the self defense forces whose job must be to ensure that this new found waves of harassment and extortion of our people comes to an end.

In a war like ours, these things are bound to happen as rule of law breaks down, however, it is our responsibility, especially the restoration forces to Ensure that these acts are brought to a bare minimum or not in existence at all.The state of our revolution is strong.

Yaoundé Terrorist Forces Declare Full Scale War on Hospitals & Medical Personnel in Ambazonia

Yaoundé Terrorist Forces Declare Full Scale War on Hospitals & Medical Personnel in Ambazonia

The war declared by the colonial President of Cameroun, Paul Biya, on the people of Southern Cameroons continue to escalate, with the terrorist forces of French Cameroon intensifying their genocidal atrocities on the innocent people. If the activities of the past week are anything to go by, then it wouldn’t be wrong to conclude that the terrorist colonial regime through it foot soldiers in Ambazonia has declared war on hospitals and medical personnel.

The week saw multiple targeted attacks on medical infrastructure and personnel in different localities across the war tone territory by the Yaoundé trained terrorists. This of course led to loss of lives and destruction of medical facilities and properties.

It all began some two months ago with when the Yaoundé terrorists attack and ransacked a local health unit in Ikiliwindi, Meme County, Southern Zone of Ambazonia, destroying the facility and manhandling the staff present. Their crime was that, they were allegedly offering their services to wounded Ambazonian Independence Restoration fighters. Today, the health facility is abandoned and the local population have resorted to traditional medical practices.

The next point of attack by the terrorists was the Government Integrated Heath Unit in Bafia, Muyuka local government of Fako County. The French Cameroun terrorist had attacked the facility shooting heavily with machine guns targeting hospitalized citizens and staff. Many patients and staff were wounded as they scamper for safety, while those who could not run gave themselves to fate. The medical facility now lies in ruins as the personnel have joined other residents in the bushes as they run for their lives.

Hospital personnel in Lebialem have also come under repeated attacks from the colonial terrorists, with the arrest and brutal murder of a popular nurse in a popular Catholic Mission hospital in the county. Other hospital workers in that county have all deserted their work stations and now seek refuge in the cities of Kumba and Buea.

Last week, still in the Southern Zone, a local government health unit in Mbonge, Meme County, the colonial terrorists attacked and burned down an integrated health unit. A sick victim who was unable to get up from his hospital bed and run for safety was burned to dead. The crime of the facility and its managers is that they have been allegedly treating wounded Ambazonian fighters.
The situation is not different in the Northern Zone of Ambazonia. In Belo, Boyo County. Colonial terrorists have in multiple occasions attacked and harassed staff of the Mbingo Baptist hospital on grounds that they have been secretly offering their services to Ambazonian fighters.

The Batibo District Hospital is also said to have been shut down with staff on the run after the colonialists invaded the hospital brutalizing patients and staff, and accusing them of treating restoration forces. Other local health centers within the Momo County have also been shut down, while some have been completely burned down to ashes.

In Mbengwi, In Mbengwi, still in Momo County, a medical doctor identified as Njong Patrick and his wife Azah Nancy, a nurse were executed by the Biya forces in ISIS style, as they returned from work on a Motobike. The murdered health personnel were heads two different medical facilities. The Acha Tugi Hospital, which is the biggest hospital in Momo County and managed by the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon has also been deserted by staff after the colonial terrorists invade the facility seeking to arrest staff and patients with gunshot wounds.

In one of the most recent cases an ambulance transporting patients between Mbingo Baptist Hospital and the Bamenda General Hospital was targeted by colonial terrorist and spayed with bullets leaving a nurse seriously injured. The Nurse according to sources is still receiving treatment in a local hospital in Bamenda.

” It very fortunate that the shootings started when the bus was on its way from Mbingo after patients had been deposited. The casualties would have been more,” a source told a local television Equinox tv.
Since the beginning of the senseless war, many young men with gunshot wounds uptrained during the peaceful protests of September 22, and October 1st 2017 have been pulled out of hospital beds and executed on grounds that they are Ambazonian fighters.
It is therefore not only a war against the sovereign people of Ambazonia, the terrorist regime is going further to attacked institutions protected under International Law during the periods of war.

In the face of all these, one can only ask; even if these health facilities are offering services to Ambazonian fighters, what is wrong in them offering these services? Don’t they have the right to offer treatment to any wounded individual during a war like this?

Why have the colonial terrorists been going to these same hospitals for treatment when they are also wounded? A good numbr of them are offered first aid treatment in some of these hospitals before being ferried to their territories of Douala and Yaoundé through helicopters.

Let the colonial terrorists continue with their war crimes, with the hope that it will weaken the Ambazonian people to give up the revolution. They fail, this is a do or die movement. It is unstoppable and the people have made up their minds to live free or die. Ambazonia shall not only be free, but the colonial regime shall pay a heavy price for all these destruction after the revolution.
