Barrister Bobga Spanks Fako And Meme Lawyers: YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN

From the desk of
Harmony Bobga Mbuton (Esq.)
The President Southern Cameroons Bar

Gentlemen of the Southern Cameroons Bar, I write to inform you that I have just received notice of intent to call off the ongoing strike embarked upon by us since October 6, 2016. I hasten to say that call for calm amongst our members, so that reason may prevail. To assist you along this path, I like to recall as follows:-

When we initiated the sit-in strike, we immediately won the admiration of our folks across the board;
We took steps to lobby the Two Teachers’ Trade Union of the Anglo-Saxon education Sub-System to join us and eventually got the University Lecturers Syndicate to join us;

The rest of the population from all walks of life of Southern Cameroons extraction within the Southern Cameroons territorial confines vindicated us in our call and aligned for the strike;

Conscious of the fact that we had discovered a slit through which the stand up for recovery of the Southern Cameroons national Identity had been reignited and reenergized, we convened in Kumba in January 2017 to tidy our hours in readiness to continue to give Southern Cameroonians our servant-leadership. At this First Southern Cameroons Bar Conference (then referred to as Common Law Bar), our four constituent Associations effectively melted into the lone Professional Body -The Southern Cameroons Bar with the leaders of those Associations honored as the core members of the first Steering Committee of the Southern Cameroons Bar, headed by my humble self;

When we were simple working as collaborating associations it was possible to have a particular Association act outside the network, but as soon as we coalesced into the Southern Cameroons Bar the opportunity of standing alone gave way;

It follows that the only body that can take a decision to call of the strike is not one of the Socio-Professional Associations which we belonged to before but the Professional Association of Southern Cameroons Bar, which I state in clear unambiguous terms is not party to even the thought of calling off the strike;

On the basis of the foregoing recapitulation which I had dealt with in more detail sometime back, there can be no moral or constitutional validity to any act of the type being taken by FAKLA;

It is also worth noting that beyond our community of lawyers of the Southern Cameroons Bar we owe a duty to Teachers and all those other groups of persons, in short, Southern Cameroonians as a whole that we inspired and brought out from under the blanket of state terrorism fear, to abandon them without giving an account;

Remember, if we back off at this critical moment we shall be telling the world that by our reckless leadership we pulled Southern Cameroonians into harm’s way and now are engaging in a political orgy with their colonizers and murderers for the last 56plus years;

I am still reluctant to call the move to call off the strike as betrayal just as well as putting out the signs of its possibility that I witnessed right from May 9, 2015! I however cannot resist recalling similar conduct that emerged when we all stood up against the obnoxious amended Penal Code which we challenged but were doubted by one of us who declared in an interview with George Ewane in the exclusive CRTV programme –“Inside the Presidency”. All I can say now is that we as members of Southern Cameroons Bar, are not only outside the Presidency of La République du Cameroun, we are indeed out of Cameroun.

Those of us who wish to stay out there are free to relocate, after all ours is a universal profession and you can float to wherever you deem it is more politically fertile without betraying those who remain faithful to a GOD ORDAINED ARMLESS LIBERATION OF A PEOPLE.

    You see, Barrister Mballa who is the FAKLA president started by forming a pro bono to defend our abducted brothers/sisters in Buea and promised to ask Meme lawyers to do the same. It was good news, we all celebrated yeah etc. When I cautioned against it, one of our frequent contributors and fan of his said he still does not doubt his humanity. I don’t doubt his humanity either but I’m dubious about his doing it and announcing the way he did. Believe me, he is not the only one doing pro bono on the ground right now, others, including those who traveled to and from Yaounde and did pro bono while he was in the dungeon of lrc did not announced. He condemns the killings of the last weeks and ask for lrc government to investigate and we all go yeah. lrc government should investigate. Seriously? He is now friends with the Munas and they are coordinating their actions. One thing is clear, they are not going to use us for their own gain. ST Muna did to our parents and grandparents, not them, not us and this time.

      You can still contribute without being there. Don’t you know that? It will be stupid to expose yourself to danger if you can also be able to contribute to the struggle wherever you may be.

    Well written Barrister Bobga,you might have escaped from the rotten LRC yet you are truly committed to the struggle just like some of those at home and the millions of Diasporas who know nothing than the dictator biya murderer regime, this struggle must succeed!any small corrupt groups, those sidelining with lrc, the chameleon Muna family will face the wrath of evil when the time come,SCs are smarter than their sleekness,outdated pretense and know who they really are,they are all outdated, old and does not represent the SCs generation,they and their half dummy, weak brother PM all live in the bribery & corruption lifestyle in the francophone regions, a warning to all those true SCs in this struggle,who continue to gives any Muna a platform in struggle will be seen as LRC agents, why can SCs no question why it was only Barrister Muna who could get Balla etc out of jail? are SCs that stupid and naive to think one Barrister is more important than all Southern Cameroonians Barristers? Muna’s family involvement in this is a danger to sabotage Independence,peace and unity in Southern Cameroons,if all these Law makers and teachers do not commit to the struggle, their profession risk being wiped out by lrc, at the lawyers have no juristic power in the francophone regions, many anglophones are locked up in francophone jails for years without trial because anglophone lawyers are undermined,this struggle must intensify no matter biya paying foreign army to kill the people, no one in lrc regime will live for ever, their entire family legacy will be that of barbaric, butchers of Cameroon with biya and his family at the top, biya, tchiroma and the rest must be trial, exiled, biya is worst than ahidjo

    One of the things I have learnt over the years is not to rush to judgment. Case in point, when Barrister Bobga realize that his life was at risk, he left Southern Cameroon via Nigeria to the United States. Immediately, many started branding a cell out and how he had received monies from that French stooge in etoudi. Once the dust settled, many realized that it was a carefully orchestrated tactic to smear the name of this noble son of the land. Recently there is this video on social media, about barrister Bobga being disgraced. Looking at the video one will agree that some of us have to remember where we come from and to learn to be respectful even when we disagree with our elders. We should reserve this behavior to our tormentors.
    Yes, the fact that Kah Wallah, the Munas and others had free access to barrister Balla while he was incarcerated is something that raised eyebrows. The fact that when he came out from incarceration, lawyers were already talking about a meeting in Mamfe, spoke volumes.
    I only hope that Barrister Balla and others understand what is at stake here as our people cannot be murdered, tortured, raped and dehumanized while some sit on the fence and play politics.
    On the other hand, we should be careful before the etoudi criminals make us to start being on each others throat on the understanding that like the chairman of the governing council said, “This struggle is bigger than one man”, and whoever tries to compromise the struggle shall be “thrown under the bus”.
    If after 56 years of this LRC insanity and some in our community who are suppose to know better are still nurturing the idea of federation, then something is terribly wrong somewhere.

      I think the regime even not think about federation. Their aim is now to go back to status quo. By all the brute force and bribery they have. We need to sensitize our families and friends not to go in this trap. #FreeAllArrested

Genocide in Ambazonia: Colonial Forces Continue to Massacre Children & Razing of Houses

Genocide in Ambazonia: Colonial Forces Continue to Massacre Children & Razing of Houses

Graphic and unbelievable images of genocide and French Cameroon’s colonial brutality have continued to emerge from Southern Cameroons (Ambazonia). The latest of those images and footages is that showing the massacre of Children and their parents in Pete Bakundu, Meme County of the Southern Zone of Ambazonia.

According to reports from the scene, French Cameroun terrorist soldiers invaded the village on August 6th 2018 in the early hours of the morning when most villages were still asleep. In exercise of their rampaging and terrorizing culture, they executed 9 civilians, mostly children. Among those massacred were two young children of 12 and 7 years old, a breastfeeding mother and her two babies. The terrorist forces went further to raze down the entire village and looting civilian properties as other villagers scamper into nearby cocoa farms for safety.

Video of Biya’s forces killings

Elsewhere still in Ambazonia, 7 innocent civilians were also massacred in Kumbo and Wum, Northern zone of Ambazonia (including the son of a serving Senator in the colonial Parliament of French Cameroun) following an invasion of communities by the French Cameroun terrorists. They had invaded the communities in response to a self-defense action by Ambazonian rebels in which five terrorist Gendarmes were taken out setting up illegal barricades and extorting money from the defenseless villagers. About 4 other innocent citizens are also reported to have been massacred since Monday in Manyu County.

Civilian massacres and burning of villages remain a daily occurrence in Ambazonia as the colonial regime of French Cameroun, aided by some members of the international community is bent of wiping out the entire people of Southern Cameroons. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to conclude that the Rwanda Genocide is currently repeating itself in the Southern Cameroons under the full watch and supervision of those that had sworn never to allow such happened again.

Massacre in Bakundu, South West Region

The 86 years old blood sucker Paul Biya continue to spill the blood of innocent citizens to remain in Power and to hold tight on his colony of Ambazonia. Some greedy members of the international community like Squire Patton Boggs, a US based Law Firm are aiding the regime to hide the massacre from global attention.

The Law firm has been hired by the bloody regime to lobby for the old dictator as he seeks to become the eternal king of the La Republic du Cameroun and by extension the occupied territory of Ambazonia. Moral justice demands that said law firm should turn down such a deal. It is shameful for any US lobby organization to accept at this juncture to coverup genocide being committed on Camera by an 86 years old dictator who has refused to use simple dialogue and negotiation to settle a simple conflict.

As the massacre continues with criminal organizations abating the killings, the Ambazonian people have however refused to give up their destinies to a blood sucking colonial regime. The people have resolved to resist the oppressor until the last man standing.

How Quarter Head Allegedly Set up Massacred Ambazonians in Buea on Ghost town Day

How Quarter Head Allegedly Set up Massacred Ambazonians in Buea on Ghost town Day

BaretaNews reporters have now gotten firsthand accounts from survivor victims and other eye witnesses in Bakweri town of how terrorist forces of La Republic du Cameroun (LRC) massacred more than 9 young men in Buea, Capital of Ambazonia, on Monday July 30, 2018.

The boys were playing different games (ludo and cards) while smoking weed in a popular weed joint patronized even by colonial forces; the quarter head, a retired warder set up the young men for execution; Some were killed on the scene of action while others ferried in a military hilux and executed in a banana plantation after Liongo village, towards Ekona. Colonial Mayor of Buea, Patrick Ekema showed up shortly after with AK47 wielding terrorist forces and seized the corpses to an unknown destination; how the life of a “francophone victim” was spared after identifying himself to the terrorist forces; all those massacred identified as native Bakwerians born and breath in Buea; how the family of Esambe Roland Ndune saw him dead in a vision and pleaded with him not to go out on ghost town days.

What actually happened to the Young Men in Buea?

According to a survivor of the attack, it was around mid-day when more than 10 of them (young men) gathered at their usual joint in Bakweri town – under a tree right inside the quarter where they always come and play bet games popularly known as” njambo” in local parlance. While playing their games, they suddenly heard a gunshot and saw one of their colleagues down in a pool of blood.

“I don’t know how I and others suddenly found ourselves running into the nearby bush. As we were running, we continued hearing gunshots, its only after the shooting ended that two of us came out of the bush as we heard people crying and shouting… I was shocked to see my friends all shot dead and soaked in blood” said a survivor.

Narrating his own side of the story, the second survivor told BaretaNews reporters that while he was on his way to the joint, he passed in front of the house of the quarter head Mr. Tonga, a retired warder and over heard him telling somebody on phone that; “they are already here playing njambo and smoking banga (Indian herm.)”

The victim said he didn’t take the phone conversation of the quarter head serious because he (the quarter head) knows very well most of the boys who often come to gather under the tree to play games. It was only after the attack that he started thinking who could have told the colonial forces that they were in that place at that particular time, considering that the scene of action is very faraway from the main road.

According to him, there are some colonial military officers who often joined them on weekends at the joint to smoke weed and play “njambo.”  As proof that it was the quarter head who allegedly set up the victims, residents of that quarter have given different versions of how he had been referring to the youngmen who often meet under the tree to smoke and play games as Amba boys.

The population gathered the four corpses in the neighborhood and identified them to be all children of the neighborhood born and breath in Buea. As the mourning and waling was ongoing, the colonial mayor of Buea suddenly showed up with a gun guided by a group of colonial forces. He demanded the youths to bring forth all the corpses which they then ferried away to an unknown destination.

How Esambe Roland was Killed and how family members begged him not to go out

As all these were happening, the population did not know that other victims were shot and they ran and died in the nearby bushes, while three others were caught and ferried away in the military hilux after the attack. It was only two days that the corpses of the other six victims were discovered, including that of Esambe Roland Ndune, a resident of Sandpit, who was arrested alongside two others, including a francophone (who was later released) and the other two executed in the banana plantation after Liongo village.

Sources close to the Esambe family say that according to two of the survivors, the colonial forces arrive the joint when they were playing ludo game. Among the LRC military terrorists was an anglophone guy who was leading the way and knows Esambe Roland aka Grand Dakwas very well. According to the story, the Ambazonian born military terrorist motioned to Grand Dakwas and his friends to run for their lives and fired a warning shot into the air.

As they started running they were pursued by the other terrorist forces, shot the others and caught two of them. Dakwas was shot on the leg and also caught while two others escaped unhurt. The three arrested were carried inside the military vehicle and in the course of ferrying them to the execution site, they discovered the Francophone guy among the three and he was set free.

They then took Dakwas and the other victim to the plantation at Liongo just after Muea, tied their hands and faces then shot, killed and dumped their bodies there. The family of Esambe Roland was thus alerted by the guys who successfully escaped after they did not see him among those shot dead. It was later the freed Francophone guy came to report that Esambe Roland aka Dakwas and another person were taken away. Their corpses were later discovered on Wednesday in the Mousaka banana Plantation already in a state of decomposition.

According to our source, family members forewarned Dakwas that morning pleading that he should not go out as they had dreams that he was shot by the military. “Even his small boy child held him that morning not to go out until he (Dakwas) pulled himself away from the child and went before this unfortunate incident happened to him.” The source added.

The various accounts on the massacre have all the proofs of a well-orchestrated incident with the quarter head, retired Warder Tonga and other high-level personalities within the municipality allegedly  in the know of what happened. Considering the fact that 98% percent of the victims are native Bakwerians, does it therefore corroborate the claim by some Men of God in Buea that there is a grand occultic agenda to spill the blood of a good number of young Bakwerians for electioneering sacrifices in LRC like the Santa elites already allegedly did in the Piyin-Menka Massacre?

We Cannot Risk Our Lifes and Businesses to Please an Academic Fraudster – Buea Business Owners Speak.

We Cannot Risk Our Lives and Businesses to Please an Academic Fraudster – Buea Business Owners Speak.

For a week, life in Buea, capital of Ambazonia has been very timid following the sealing of more than 600 businesses premises by colonial mayor of Buea as punishment for respecting ghost towns declared by the Interim Government of Ambazonia. Mayor Ekema Patrick had gone ahead to respect his promise of sealing business premises that respected the ghost towns.

Apart from banks that were reopened on Wednesday last week, the other sealed businesses were only to be opened upon the payment of the sum of 50000 francs each. The business owners were also expected to sign an undertaking committing themselves not to yield to the call for ghost towns or they have their businesses forever.

Majority of the business owners therefore decided not to pay or sign any undertaking thereby staying away from their shops until Wednesday August 1st. After his failed march for peace, colonial mayor Ekema Patrick was forced to succumb to the determination of the business owners not to pay or sign any undertaking, by declaring a so-called clemency for all those whose businesses were sealed. He however promised to seal them again next Monday if the people still go ahead to respect the ghost towns.

BaretaNews therefore caught up with some of the business owners in Buea on Wednesday August 1st to get their views on the closure of their shops.

“Giving him that money and signing that undertaking would have been an act of self-incrimination. I have the right to close my shop anytime and any day. I have paid his (Ekema’s) taxes and he doesn’t have the right to tell me when to lock and not to lock my shop. It is my shop and my money, it is not council money” said a Molyko based shop owner whose business was also sealed.

“My brother, when Ambas and La Republic fight, the masses suffer. But we the people must be wise. Ekema and his military cannot protect us but we see Amba boys in the quarters every day. So, we better the respect the instructions of the leaders of the struggle because at least they are all fighting for us all. So, it is our own sacrifice for the revolution. Ekema can seal this shop for three years, but so long as the goods inside will not get rotten, I cannot respect his foolish order” another shop owner noted.

The third person interviewed was very blunt and hard on the colonial mayor.

“Young man (referring to BaretaNews reporter), I cannot afford to risk my life and business because I want to please or respect the ego of an academic fraudster. This struggle is more than Paul Biya, so Ekema cannot be the one to stop it. I respect the ghost town not because I am afraid of Amba boys but because I also want to make my own sacrifice for our freedom. In fact we the population are afraid of the military and not Amba boys … don’t mind that his (Ekema’s) noise, I ‘ll see how he will keep on sealing shops until the struggle is over. I’ll advise him to just seal-off the whole town for respecting ghost town.”

From the views of the three business owners contacted, it is clear that the Mayors instructions shall be again defiled next Monday which is another ghost town day. It is therefore going to be a long fight for Mayor Ekema Patrick.

With a bounty of 3 million francs now set by the interim government for anyone who will arrest or provide lead information to Mayor Ekema’s arrests, it is only left to be seen if he will continue with his colonial rampaging in the town next week.
