Civil society in South Africa picks the Southern Cameroons Case



Civil society in South Africa picks the Southern Cameroons Case.

The Right To Know is a civil society organisation based in SA. It focuses on information as a basic human right to every citizen. We recall many media houses in SA contacted LRC embassy in SA about the crises in Cameroon and they refused to comment. This and other issues have angered the movement and they sort and got permission from SA authorities to lead a march of 1000 South Africans to the embassy. Their mission is to inform the embassy staff that as South Africans, they have a right to know what is happening in any country that shares diplomatic relations with South Africa.

Amongst other things, they wish to question the Cameroon government on why they shut down internet for over 3 months in the Southern Cameroons. We also recall that some ministers were sent by Biya to try and push the South Africa government to shut down the SCBC which is hosted in SA. This group has been following this story and is furious why such a tool used to inform SC can be asked to be shut. The group has equally written to MTN asking them to tell SA why they have decided as a SA company abroad to side with a repressive government and tarnish the image of the country abroad. Also recall that when the chairman of the GC Ayuk Tabe went to south Africa, he was given a good attention by the media in that country.

Our comrades in South Africa will be joining them in the over 1000 march in Pretoria tomorrow. They will hand in a memo and demand explanations. It is also our wish to inform you that 3 civil society organisations in South Africa have accepted to accompany our struggle for freedom. They are urging their government to take up the case just as other countries took the case against apartheid.

    The world is not oblivious to what is happening in Southern Cameroons. The fact that Biya spoke to an almost empty room speaks volume. Now the leadership of this struggle must do everything to make sure that our people remain peaceful and should be very vigilant of provocateurs from LRC who will infiltrate the peaceful protesters.
    Our people must be on the look out for strange people they do not recognize. It is good to know that in a video that is now on the internet, a LRC thug can be heard boastfully talking about how he recently had the opportunity to kill Justice Ayah Paul from behind as he came out of a car. He also was talking about eliminating Kah Walla and how nobody will do nothing to him if he were to kill one of us. Yet, these are the type of people to whom some in our community still want to extend an olive branch to.
    Well to those amongst us who are still with their heads buried in the sand, it is time to wake up from day dreaming and smell the coffee as we are dealing here with wolves in sheep clothing’s.

      You are so right. One way or the other thrust me, they will finally come out and show the true nature and it is going to be on those who thrust them so much.

      I’m not worried for I know their arrogance, lack of sight, ignorance and uncontrollable temper and emotions will do nothing positive to them.

      We are already seeing it happening.

    As you all know, information has been our greatest weapon as we record great success in our struggle: from a mere lawyer and teachers initial agitation to a global awareness especially among the Southern Cameroonians.
    Now faced with the evil of la republic, we need to seriously engage foreign and mainstream media to cover the October 1st declarations be at home in Buea, in all the towns in Southern cameroon and in all the countries where the same celebration and proclamation will take place. The Spokesperson, the communication warriors, the various pressure groups should actively engage these Media to be present and report to the world. This is urgent so lets act immediately.

    Our program remains the same as stated yesterday. The Governing Council is aware on the current situation and would update with more advice soon on the social media and probably SCBC. We are also aware of the threat on internet cut and “slow down”; don’t panick. We have a means to communicate with you when it’s necessary, everyone would know what the next step is. As of now, stick to the plan.

    South africa once was divided in different independant republics
    They know what is means to be divided -but now they are united

    Do you honestly think that seperation is better than unity ?

    China ,russia ,england ,france ,spain . . . all have part of them wanting separation ,but this this is rarely succeded anywhere .so let us be prepare for that too

    Respect My opinion and do not remove it like Paul biya in LRC .
