Cameroun Diplomatic Corps Calls On Biya To End Anglophone Conflict
BaretaNews can now report that after many years of silence, members of the Cameroun diplomatic corps have on Wednesday urged Cameroun Dictator, Mr. Paul Biya to settle the ongoing conflict in Southern Cameroons
“The diplomatic corps counts on your wisdom to offer a peaceful and lasting solution to the current crisis in the Northwest and Southwest regions of the country,” Paul Patrick Biffot, Gabonese ambassador to Cameroon and head of the diplomatic corps in Cameroon said.
This maybe the first time we are getting an official statement from the Cameroun diplomatic corps. For most period of the conflict, they have been silent though very few of their respective countries have been on it. Pressures keep mounting on Mr Biya to find lasting ways to sort the conflict. United Nations security council had called on him to sort things out.
Yesterday Mr Paul Biya in his official Facebook account wrote “I have said and confirm that I have the greatest concern for the people of these two regions (North-West and South-West). I am very sensitive to their concerns about their security and their aspirations for the return to calm and normal social life” Rene Timah, Southern Cameroons political communicator responded ” A killer assuring his victims he is deeply concern about their safety. Biya is trying to paint an opposite picture to the international community. A Machiavelli tactics of carrot and stick. Kill and pretend to mourn and others will be considered as the real killers”
Mr. Biya has been adamant to resolve the conflict. Thousands of Southern Cameroonians including their leaders are still being locked up across jails in the Cameroons. Many more are displaced internally with thousands in Nigeria. Just recently, in Jakiri, Cameroun BIRs raped Judith Kongla, a 24 year old nursing mother with 5 months old baby. Many more villages, houses are being burnt. There is no end in sight.
Southern Cameroons Self Defense forces are not on their part giving up either. We cannot tell what meaning and how far the message from the diplomatic corps will go to help
