Cameroon’s Army Chief Admits Atrocities on Civilians

La Republique du Cameroun’s army chief of staff, General Rene Claude Meka visited Bamenda, in the northern part of Ambazonia on Wednesday April 11th 2018 to evaluate the state of the war against the people of Ambazonia declared months ago by absentee president Paul Biya. The war, which has been on since November 2017 has seen heavy casualties on both sides and resulted in over 100,000 civilians fleeing their homes to neighboring towns and neighboring countries like Nigeria in search for safety.

Speaking at the deserted and devastated battleground to soldiers currently militarizing the area, the elderly general blamed the soldiers for abusing the population they are supposed to be protecting. He instructed his commanders to be nice to the population so that the population can help them out in the war against the people of Ambazonia.

This declaration has been heavily criticized as a senseless declaration considering that the general is asking the soldiers to cooperate with the same people they are fighting. The same soldiers have been given full orders to shoot on sight and shoot to kill since January 2018, an order which has led to many villagers deserting their homes, hiding women and children in the forests and organizing themselves into self-defense groups. The same soldiers have adopted a scorched-earth military tactic for several months now in the process of which they have burnt many elderly villagers in their homes who were too old to run away like the younger ones. The same soldiers have looted hundreds of homes and made away with livestock, food, money, jewelry and other valuable items while destroying what couldn’t be carried away like motorbikes and vehicles. In short, the General asking these soldiers to cooperate with the population is like asking one to sleep with an enemy. It will take decades, if not a century to restore any kind of friendship between the population and the army in Ambazonia.

By acknowledging the need to work with the population and not against it, General Meka is doing too little and too late. The easy thing to do in order to win back the population would be to simply lay down arms and demilitarize the zone. One doesn’t need a PhD in warfare in order to figure that out. Civilians will come back to their homes – if they have one to return to – if soldiers stop parading the streets in search for people to shoot. Gen. Meka is not ignorant. He knows the solution to the crisis but like his boss president Paul Biya, he prefers to fuel the war on and keep the crisis ongoing. It is the best and easiest strategy to ensure the extermination of the people of Ambazonia. If you see things from that angle, then his orders to his commanders to lure the population back into the villages make complete sense.

The same strategy is being put in place in other parts of Ambazonia like Manyu County where a meeting by colonial administrators is holding to find ways to ensnare the people who have managed to find safety in remote caves and forests. They know that as long as the thousands of displaced Ambazonians stay alive in other places, eventually they will return someday to fight for their land. So the best strategy is to pretend to want them back home, entrap them then bundle them off into prisons in La Republique du Cameroun or kill straight away as the case is right now.

Unfortunately, citizens of Ambazonia have learned from experience never to trust anything related to La Republique du Cameroun, never again! And it shall not be business as usual General.

    I don’t pity that general. The army of LRC has already lost the battle for the hearts of the Southern Cameroonian population. Killing children and grandparents, burning, looting and raping young girls and boys. In fact the army gradually loses control over the rural areas. Large parts of Manyu division are already in control of self defense groups. The main roads and Mamfe central is still under government control. But for how long. Biya is running low with money. Now borrow from China. Weapons from Russia for that useless war were intercepted in Tunesia. LRC shall release our leaders and start negotiations for a peaceful separation of the two Cameroons. The 57 years old project has failed. There is no turning back.

      Yet @George you are proving once again that you are a sore looser. Are you kidding me, why would you pity a flag general? He should be the one pity you for your miserable life.
      By the way this general is in Bamenda, a so called Ambazonia territory what are you going to do?. What a joke! Beratafake can said all he wants to, it wouldn’t change a dam thing on the ground, peace is just around the corner.

    The list continues?
    Is he coming to complete what Minster of defense and Atangana Ngi Paul failed to do?
    Sooner we will see the Old dictator coming to NW/SW
    Ground Zero should practice to take this War to Douala and Western Regions so that LRD can have a better excuse of Burning down their own Villages, We can no longer continue to play defense, Offensive defense is now needed

      I disagree with you to take the war to LRC. If we do so we will lose sympathy. No we have to beat the oppressor in our territory. We are no agressors. LRC is annexing us. Even we take prisoners of war we need to treat them according international standards. We want to build up a nation of good. Moral and integrity is needed.

          Bullshit Amba. Then we lose credibility as freedom fighters/independence movement. We Southern Cameroonians are no terrorists and shall never apply terrorist methods. To win our fight we need the full suppport of our population. There is no military solution. In the end we need to sit on the round table.

          Long live our beautiful Ambaland

    It is a war of resistance guys. The more resistant side will win and I am sure that side is not our side in terms of resources, ammunition and moral. Our IG and defense groups must find a way to take this to the negotiating table. And one way to do that is a total economic blockade. Only that can bring LRC to the negotiation table.

    • Jojo

      April 12, 2018 at 6:08 PM

      @Joshua Ngome,
      At least someone with some common sense, but remember that the country has been on economy blockage for more than 20 years. With this tactic, only little people suffer the most.
      What you have to do is to get this secession idea off the table and the whole country will rally behind you. Peoples are sick because of Biya, but your secession idea makes them more sicker. Just a taught!

    In my opinion if attacking LRC can force them to the negotiating table it is okay and a good way out. We keep saying no attacks while they attack us everyday. I remember at the beginning of this whole thing in 2016 we used to say “no violence no violence”. Any Ambazonians who mentioned anything involving violence were denounced, soon we saw that peaceful demonstrations were not shaking LRc in any way. I think that is exactly how we shall feel very soon. Self-defense will not shake LRC in any way. That’s a bitter fact we must admit.

      Pa Dee,

      you’re the one panicking. You thought you’ll just wake up one day and set all Anglos against Francos, and the majority of Anglos would buy your S###. No Sir. If you want to join the boat of soldiers to match towards Etoudi, you’re more than welcome at all times. But, if you think you can provoke a genocide in our country to seal your deals with Oyibos that are behind you, you’re dreaming.

      We’ll fight both you and Oyibo man, without any discrimination whatsoever.

      I for one, would not mind to join any force that would soon be created to give you a taste of your own medicine.

      I guess you think you have monopoly over violence, burning of houses, kidnapping, intimidation…our own fight shall meet you in the WEST.

        Hahaha froggie. We Southern Cameroonians laugh about you. Good luck with your banana republic. The fall or death of PB won’t change anything. Francos remain francos.

USA Breitbart News Network Calls Out Cameroon’s 85-Year-Old President 7th Term Run As Massacres Grow

Cameroon’s 85-Year-Old President Wants a 7th Term as Massacres Grow

Breitbart News Network  is a far-right syndicated American news, opinion and commentary news founded in mid-2007 by conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart. It is widely read in America with over 45 million monthly readers. It forms one of those tabloits that elected President Donald Trump and it is daily read by Trump himself. In this richly written article, Breibart did ,not shy away from calling out the so-called Anglophone Cameroon by its real name as Southern Cameroons, it also shames and mocks Mr. Biya 7th term run for office as massacres grows in the Cameroons. BaretaNews brings you the article in full. Read on

 

The U.S. State Department on Monday condemned the release of a video appearing to show soldiers in Cameroon killing a woman and infant, among others.  As President Paul Biya, 85, prepares to run for a seventh term as president, foreign governments and human rights organizations are increasingly sounding the alarm on growing violence between French and English speakers in the country.
Biya announced that he would seek a seventh term as president on Friday, having clocked 36 years as the nation’s head of state in which most of the country, but not those in government, have experienced a significant economic decline. Should Biya win the election, he will be 92 years old by the time his latest term ends. Another significant issue with Biya’s rule is that he does not live in Cameroon for much of the year, preferring Switzerland to his own country. The New York Times noted this week that Biya has spent 4.5 of his 36 years in office abroad, even though his country faces major economic challenges, regular terrorist attacks on the part of neighboring Nigeria’s Boko Haram, and growing strife between francophone and anglophone Cameroonians.

Joint Commanders of Restoration Forces Issue Ultimatum to Ambazonian MPs in La Republique du Cameroun

Joint Commanders of Restoration Forces Issue Ultimatum to Ambazonian MPs in La Republique du Cameroun

BaretaNews has now confirmed a Joint declaration by commanders of Ambazonian Restoration forces in the homeland, requesting Ambazonian Members of Parliament (MPs) represented in the National Assembly of La Republique du Cameroun to resign and walk out of the foreign parliament. The declaration which was done in Kumba, economic headquarters of the Southern Zone of Ambazonia on July 14, 2018, gives the MPs an ultimatum of seven days to quit the colonial assembly and wait for when they’ll be requested to reconvene in Buea.

BaretaNews has been able to talk with 8 commanders on the ground and 5 confirmed being aware of and were part of those who came out with the declaration/ultimatum. 3 others however noted that, they weren’t part of those who signed the declaration but they however agree and abide with the content, as it seek to foster the revolution and save the lives of the Ambazonian people.

According to the commanders, the blood of innocent Ambazonian citizens cannot continue to flow on the streets of Ambazonia, while the so-called MPs, who claim to be the people’s representatives sit and watch without any major action. Worst among these MPs are those of the CPDM who have completely sold their consciences and have deliberately sealed their mouths. They are therefore called upon to hold themselves responsible for whatever befalls them after the expiration of the ultimatum.

A group of these colonial MPs such as Honorable Joseph Mbah Ndam, Hon. Fusi Namukong, Hon. Joseph Wirba among many others had last year made public statements to the effect that they were resigning or pulling out from the colonial parliament. Among these group of MPs, only the fire spitting Hon. Wirba meant what he said, as he has not been seen anywhere around the colonial parliament ever since his declaration.

The others had since returned to the Yaoundé glass house, making many failed attempts to get the conflict discussed in the lawmaking chamber. Their voices have been deliberately ignored for the past two years. While the US Congress, the Nigerian, German, British and even the EU Parliaments have all discussed the conflict and requested for an inclusive dialogue on the root causes of the conflict, the matter has remained a taboo subject in the occupier’s house of assembly.

On the September 22, 2017 and October 1, 2017, the Ambazonian people went out with peace plants requesting for their rights and pleading with these MPs to learn from history and walk out of the colonial assembly in order to shortened the revolution. Unfortunately, the people were deceived by these MPs.

At this juncture where the colonial regime has unleased its war machinery at the people, maiming and killing innocent civilians, it has become more than expedient for these MPs to leave the colonial institution or face the anger of the people, whom they claim to represent. Like the Joint Commanders declared, it is now an issue of BLOOD and IRON. No individual shall be allowed again to legitimize this act of colonialism and toil with the lives and destinies of more than 8 million Ambalanders.

 

Below is the full version of the declaration.

Declaration of the Joint Commanders of all Ambazonia Liberation Forces to MPs & Senators of our Land

We, Commanders of all units of liberation forces affiliated to all Ambazonian organizations in this Southern Cameroons struggle, have this July 14 2018 solemnly made this declaration and we want all those concerned to take note that until all of us are killed, we shall implement this engagement, so please take us seriously as take the public as witness that we warned you before acting.

Everyone has seen that for almost two years today, some people who call themselves our elected representatives have failed to listen to us who they claim elected them to Parliament and to the Senate. We therefore understand that truly they were never meant to represent us, that only Paul Biya, their families and their stomachs matter to them.

We also want to observe, that on the 22 of September 2017, some of them took us for their fools by claiming they were resigning and afterwards, we saw them dancing in Parliament to earn their salaries. Of course, they can all agree with us today that the Parliament of Pa Paul Biya can never discuss our problem. That is why we have come to the decision below.

All Parliamentarians and Senators that hail from Ambazonia have exactly 7 days from this July 14, 2018 to present their official resignation letters to the press and everywhere else and then wait for an official program to convene in Buea to start the Ambazonian House of Assembly under our protection. Beyond this date, anyone who would not have complied WILL be considered an armed terrorist soldier of LRC and shall be dealt with the way we have been dealing with them. No political party is exempted and this decision shall not be appealed. We simply pray that these greedy people do not tempt us, else what the terrorist BIR of Yaounde did to one family in Widikum will befall them. The time for games is over. Now is the time for BLOOD AND IRON to determine the course of our struggle.

We are reiterating that after July 21, no one should blame us for what will happen.

It is our wish that all will comply and on time. Meantime, we urge the following women: Emma Lafon, Regina Mundi, Monjoa Lifaka, Agnes Ntube, Ngala Esther and Meyali Meboka who we believe know the pains of child birth, but who have been quiet as our brothers and sisters are being slaughtered to take the lead, else no one in their lineage WILL EVER LIVE to say what would have happened to them.

We have spoken and so shall it be.

Done in Kumba on the 14 July 2018.

The Joint Commanders of Ambazonia Liberation Forces.

Continuous Targeted Killings in Southern Cameroons Under the Silent Watch of those that Matter

Targeted Killings

Continuous Targeted Killings in Southern Cameroons Under the Silent Watch of those that Matter

The targeted killing of young men, women and children in Southern Cameroons /Ambazonia by the terrorist colonial forces of La Republique du Cameroun have intensified in the last week with the ruthless massacre of 15 Ambazonians in Tiben, Batibo, a brother to the Fon of Mbiame in Bui and five students of the University of Bamenda, all in the Northern Zone of Ambazonia, making a total of at least 21 executions within the just ended week.

At least, 28 innocent Ambazonians were also shot in Kumba, Bombey (along the road the Buea-Kumba road), Muyuka, and Muea by the terrorist forces from Yaoundé. Almost 20 elderly people sustained gun shot injuries. Just early this morning of Sunday July 15, 2018 the terrorist forces were firing into homes beside the road in Mile 16 Buea, targeting civilians in their sleep.

All these massacres are taking place under the silent watch of all those who matter at the international scene, and at a time the colonial terrorist claims to be preparing a so-called humanitarian plan for the affected people of Ambazonia. In trying to defend its massacre of innocent civilians, the colonial terrorist claimed they were responding to attacks from Ambazonian restoration forces.

They boasted to have neutralize 6 of the Ambazonian restoration forces but all evidences point to the fact that these were innocent citizens, some of whom were shot right in front of and inside their own houses. In some cases, locally made guns were placed on the executed bodies to take pictures as prove. The specific case of a mentally deranged young man executed in Kumba and his corpse framed up with a den gun is conspicuous.

The Center for Human Rights and Democracy in Africa (CHRDA) headed by Barrister Dr. Nkongho Felix Agbor-Balla, confirmed these massacres with a detailed report on the cases in Batibo and the University of Bamenda. According to the CHRDA report, the terrorist soldiers of La Republique got news that there was a training camp of the Restoration forces in Tiben village of Batibo Sub Division and they targeted the locality with the aim of eliminating members of the camp.

“They entered the village at about 7a.m. on Thursday morning while the villagers were preparing to go and sell their goods and merchandise at the Widikum weekly market, a neighboring locality to Tiben ​. Failing to meet the ADF, they started shooting sporadically in the air causing panic and fear in the villagers. In the midst of the commotion, some of the villagers escaped to the bush. A notable and shocking scenario was the killing of a teacher Mr. Tebit Evans Chick ​ and 7 members of his family.” A section of the report said.

The 15 massacred include 7 men, 5 women and 3 children (all girls), while one of the victims identified as Mrs Abang Mary was severely injured.

On the execution of five students of the University of Bamenda, CHRDA investigations revealed that:

“…on Wednesday night when the students were in their hostels. Neighbors, students, also say that night; they saw military men ordering students to come out of their hostels (The name of the hostel gotten was Elisam Hostel situated around the police station) which they did. They were asked to first present their identity cards, which they did. Later ordered to sit on the floor and later on asked to stand and walk towards the soldiers who out rightly hot and killed these students (execution style). Early the next morning, they went to see what had happen, but unfortunately, they couldn’t find their fellow mates at the hostel.”

“That morning, it was discovered at the Regional Hospital in Bamenda that five (5) bodies (all young men) were brought in the hospital without any identification. Parents of BILLY KARI, one of the victims, were contacted by the students of the hostel on the happenings of yesternight. The parents came and searched for him everywhere, they went to the police station but on getting there, were told to go look for him in the mortuary. On getting to the hospital, there discovered and identified that one of the bodies brought to the hospital without any identification is their son- Billy Karri, a student studying Urban Planning, in the University of Bamenda.”

Despite the fact that the truth about these massacres is already in the national and international media, the colonial terrorist regime has not stopped in its diabolical plans to hide their crimes. They have resorted to forcing the families of the massacred victims at gun point to sign undertakings at the mortuaries, stating that their family members were killed by Ambazonian restoration forces.

BaretaNews continues to call on the global community and those responsible for the prevention of this ongoing genocide to sit up to their responsibilities. The conspiracy of silence is proving to be testimony of compliance to these targeted killings and it is high time men and women of good conscience in the world rose up to their responsibilities and stop this carnage.

Ambazonians continue to state that the colonial terrorist regime doesn’t have the monopoly of violence. The people have already been pushed to the wall enough. In the past months, they have through the Ambazonia Restoration forces been defending themselves against all odds. However, the continuous silence of the world is forcing the people to go beyond just defending themselves but also going on the offensive.

Enough is Enough. The bloody regime can never succeed in using force to continuously enslave Ambazonians after 57 years. Never again, not with this revolutionary enlightened generation. The people have chosen to fight till the last man standing.
