Given the chaos that has often characterized the calls for ghost towns in the territory of Ambazonia, and with many especially the innocent populace feeling the brunt of prolonged ghost towns, the Consortium has done findings and consultations to remedy the situation.
Writing to the main coalition arm of the struggle, Southern Cameroons Liberation Council, SCLC, the constituent member, The Consortium, outlined a plethora of revelations that will help the struggle through Ghost town activities, but with the full endorsement of the people on Ground Zero.
Noting that Ghost days have been programmed to stop the Labour day of May 1st and Illegal National Day of May 20th on Ambazonian soil, the Consortium is struggling to set a precedence whereby the local people of Ambazonia won’t suffer. They propose that, the Forces and Self Defense Commanders Governing GZ should not take above 3 days for ant ghost towns or lock down event
According to their findings, many people on ground say its tough going through many lock downs without access to basic needs like food which not all can stock for a long while due to hardship and poverty.
Its also noted that within this long period, soldiers belonging to neighbouring La Republique du Cameroun, up their game in looting and Massacre. This gives a very difficult time to the innocent people. The Consortium therefore confirms that, the Ghost Towns billed for April 29th – May 1st and May 18th -20th is just strategic.
The Consortium is also concerned on sorting ways of contributing to the struggle, while condemning those who kidnap and take ransom. The Consortium reveals that on this count, the civilian stakeholders urges the leadership of the struggle to institute a discreet, well protected and secure means of contributions on the Southern Cameroons territory, ensuring the money reaches where it must go and generate the desired effect.
They also urged the volunteer self-defense units to set up mobile teams that shall respond speedily to distress calls when some stray units and barbaric Yaounde soldiers disguised as “Amba Boys” go threatening. They have urged the self defense fighters to consider their people first, defend their communities and people especially in Rural Areas from foreign invasion while inviting all stakeholders to be more united now than ever before for the herculean journey to freedom.
In all, the Consortium’s letter signed by Ambazonian Trade Union Leaders indicates that from her findings on ground, the people of Ambazonia are still wallowing in an unquenchable taste for freedom and won’t stop at any length without their complete independence.
