Statement attributable to the Spokesman for the Secretary-General on the release of arrested leaders in the Republic of Cameroon

The Secretary-General welcomes the release in Cameroon of a number of leaders from the South West and North West regions and the dropping of all charges against them following a 30 August order by President Paul Biya. The Secretary-General hopes that this positive step will lead to a further lowering of tensions and strengthened political dialogue.

The Secretary-General encourages the Cameroonian authorities to pursue their efforts to address the grievances of the Anglophone community and promote measures of national reconciliation in order to find a durable solution to the crisis. The Secretary-General reiterates the readiness of the United Nations to continue to support such efforts.

    Now SCACUF and Southern Cameroons – Ambazonia Governing council have the edge at this point and so must cease the moment. Since 2009, the African Union recommended such dialogue and offered its good offices to mediate. But La Republique du Cameroun’s government felt too big and proud and ignored this call like they have done with previous ones. At the start of the current crises, they again as well as many other International organizations including the same UN called for genuine dialogue. La Republique still ignored the calls. The UN is doing it again now. I think it is time for the Governing Council to explore ways and set a time table for the dialogue. We cannot wait for Yaounde to dictate the pace anymore, by the way, we are equals now in these talks and Southern Cameroons also has the authority to start the convening of these talks. We should present the UN and other partners with our own road map for the dialogue and tell them we are ready. We can as well send an Invitation to La Republique to meet us at a place of our choosing or one agreed upon.

    Southern Cameroonians should remember that we cannot entirely blame the UN for being silent on our case. They gave us Independence and enacted a resolutions to protect that Independence. The UN has been waiting for the treaty of Union between us and La Republique to be deposited at the Secretariat of the UN for 56 year plus now, and are still waiting.

    Note that the follow up to ensure that independence was fully granted to trust territories was left in the hands of the colonial powers. The UN did not have instruments of its own to do the follow up but relied on the administering authorities, in which case Britain failed us. So it is for us now to make sure that a treaty is deposited at the UN this time. The nature of such a treaty identifying us as a nation depends on whatever we choose at the talks. My take is that a referendum for Southern Cameroonians to choose between a Federation with La Republique or total Independence from La Republique must be put on the table. SACCUF, AGC, THIS IS THE TIME TO MAKE OR MARE. Your humble servant Ambe Kenneth

    Every ruling from AU, UN and instructions that were given to larepublique to dialogue must be systematically documented and given to the UN. Every time they defied all efforts to negotiate must be documented. These will show how clearly this barbaric regime is delinquent and hostile. The UN must know in no uncertain terms that we have been down this road before.
    NO MORE GAMES. WE SET THE AGENDA. FULL INDEPENDENCE!!!!!!!!!

    Ambe Kenneth: You must must have La Republic ancestry somewhere in your blood line to reason like that, or, you have the mad syndrome.

    Treaty of Union for what?

    We want total independence or death.

    I have cameroun and all camerounians.

    I never want to fly home through Douala ever again. it will be through Tiko, Bali or Bessongabang.

    NO RETREAT! NO SURRENDER!

    Atem Bakia, I have followed your comments to most posts with plenty of admiration especially the passion with which you seem to love Ambazonia. Being passionate as expressed in many of your comments against other comrades who ally with the enemy is a good thing. But letting passion blind your ability to contextualize and discern meaning in the utterances of others can be very dangerous for you and the very cause your are fighting for. To throw a little light on the issue for your understanding, note that I did not say “Treaty of Union” like you put it. I am certain the following lines are the ones giving you headache

    Also note that even as we all clamor for total independence, when it finally comes, we must at the end of the day deposit a treaty at the UN Identifying us as a nation that is if we must be part of the UN. Atem Bakia, Enjoy the day and keep up the fight against the enemy.
