‘I WILL SHUT UP WHEN ITS OVER’, Dieudonné Essomba
I’ll shut up when it’s over.
I am talking about the anglophone problem because it is still possible to save the furniture because there is still a solution. And my responsibilities force me to down, down again and down, in the hope that we will understand.Some prefer to fall asleep on their certainties, by projecting the world’s expectations and the laws governing the world. They then take examples that fix them, looking at Spain, France or the other major countries of Europe, but by refusing the examples that are closer and more meaningful to Cameroon.
African-Born African countries are 6:
1. Nigeria who experienced the civil war. General Ironsi was an ibo, and when he took power, he deleted the federation on the grounds that it would prevent ibo traders from deploying their activities. This measure gives rise to a violent reaction from other communities that overthrow and kill him, then slaughter the installed ibos that ironsi claimed to protect. In the face of this situation, the ibos revolt and try to create a state, but their attempt fails. Nigeria becomes federal.
2. Sudan is born federal, with part of the north, formed of Arabs and a southern part, formed black. But very quickly, the Khartoum authorities delete the Federation, triggering a violent war that leads to the secession of Southern Sudan.
3. Eritrea had been detached from the Ethiopian Empire by Italian settlers, but to independence, it was rebound to Ethiopia under a federal model. Quickly, the empire authorities delete the Federation, triggering a terrible war that leads to Eritrean secession.
4. Somalia was born federal, with Somalia that had been colonized by the English and Somaliland that had been colonized by Italy. The military authorities eliminated the Federation, triggering a widespread disorder, which has now led to an independent Somaliland and peace, Democratic, next to a totally imploded Somalia.
5. Tanzania was born with two entities, Tanganyika and the island of Zanzibar. They had the lucidity of never changing their management model and never had a problem.
6. Cameroon was also born federal and this federation was deleted. The fact that anglophones did not react rather has grown the illusion that this model had grafted. It must be an extreme naivety to imagine that Cameroon is going to get away where other African countries have failed.
The great lesson we’re getting is that we don’t delete a federation. It was a mistake, and there will be an aggravating situation. This stubbornness in the unitary state will inevitably result in the effective secession of anglophones, and it is unstoppable. There is no human way to escape this situation.
The only prospect is to return to the federation by extending it across the territory.And we have no time.
In fact, Cameroon’s true destiny is that of Somalia: Anglophones will leave, and the day they leave, Francophone Cameroon will explode.
If I insist, it’s good because I know there’s absolutely nothing else to do. The day I will shut up, and this day is no longer, know that everything is lost for Cameroon!
