Samuel Etoo’s Hypocritical Visit to Ambazonia: Angry Online Reactions from Ambazonians
The recent news that, La Republique du CameroUn’s (LRC) soccer star and UNICEF good will Ambassador Samuel Etoo, shall be visiting Ambazonia for a so-called “peace-preaching mission”, is already raising very angry dust among Ambazonians on Social Media. The fact is that Samuel Etoo and his gang of intending visitors are all shameless hypocritical fellows of the highest order.
From his antecedence in responding to humanitarian situations in the Cameroons, Samuel Etoo has been swift when it comes to his fellow LRC citizens. However, the fact that he and others have all been suspiciously silent and blind to the intentional and dehumanizing abuses on Ambazonians from their own government for the past two years, is testament to the fact that they approve and are in tandem with the perception of their people and leaders that Ambazonians are their slaves and conquered people.
With a sudden planned hypocritical visit, Ambazonians are asking the right questions to the colonial agents – What has suddenly open their eyes on a need for a “peace-preaching mission” in Ambazonia? Is because things are now politically falling apart in their camp? Or Is it a covert FECAFOOT mission to rescue the hosting right of the African Cup of nations which is about to fall off from their hands considering the present conflict? Ambazonians have reminded Etoo and others that they cannot succeed where the so-called Ambazonian elites have failed.
Among the different activists on Social Media, who have t been tackling the colonial agent and his tele-guiders through very critical write-ups and reactions, BaretaNews finds two very interesting ones worth sharing to a larger Ambazonian audience.
The first is from Ambazonian Civil Liberty Activist, Comrade Capo Daniel, who writes:
The French Cameroun soccer star Samuel Eto who had previously spoken of the British Southern Cameroons crisis in an unwelcome manner, is now set for a propaganda mission to Ambazonia. The primary aim of the colonial administration in organizing this visit is to save the African Nations Cup and to reassure the football community that it is safe to hold the nation’s cup in the Cameroons. The so-called visit by Etoo to Ambazonia has nothing to do with a show of solidarity to the victims of state terrorism in these regions but a complete insult to the suffering of the over 160000 Ambazonia driven away from their indigenous homes and the 60000 who have been forced into Nigeria as refugees. If Etoo actually cares about the plights of the victims, let him go first of all to visit the refugee camps in Nigeria just as he visited French Camerounese in Libya. His visit is a provocation that may result to conflict and unnecessary deaths.”
The second worth sharing reaction comes from Comrade Ambe Emmanuel, who writes:
“ETOO TO PROVOKE AMBAZONIA:
After all failed attempts to resolve Anglophone crisis, LRC resorts to subterfuges to hoodwink us like they did in Foumban and perhaps to divert attention while they prepare another scheme against us. They surely take us for Foumban fools.
Etoo to visit Ambazonia to encourage children on the necessity resuming classes as yet another September approaches with no end in sight as things are getting worse on the field.
Where we’re you when students were beaten on the streets and forced to drink sewage.
Where we’re you when school children and teachers were abducted and illegally detained
Where were you when entire villages, 78 in number were razed to the ground
Where were you when old people were burnt in their homes
Where were you when pregnant women were giving birth in the bushes in the midst of mosquitoes and snakes and rainfall, the cold.
Where were you when old people died in the bushes because if lack of medical care
Where were you when even hospitals were attacked by LRC forces
Where were you when the injured were denied medical care and left to die of their injuries.
Where were you when there was an international uproar about the plight of refugees stranded in Nigeria for over a year now.
When there was an international uproar about citizens stranded in Libya you took the initiative, even to the point of spending you own money to bring them home.
When Longue Longue fought legal battles in France, you took the initiative to the point of freeing him and bringing him home.
When Nguea Laroute was on the hospital dying bed, you took the initiative to rescue her life.
When Ambazonians were stranded in Nigeria you never gave it a thought.
True to yourself and to your mentors, we are not citizens of this country, his idea, they are terrorist’s obsessive to be punished as your Etoudi mentor declared.
Now that the Diplomatic noose is tightening around him, he suddenly remembers you are UNICEF good will ambassador and he pulls you out like a trump card to divert attention.
As much as we cannot begrudge your generosity nor give troublesome on how to spend your money, your visit can only be seen as a midwife that arrives after the child has been born.
You want to come and tell us about education?
No education in war, the war Biya declared. Stop, you don’t love our children more than we love them.
You are not welcome in Ambazonia.
Anglophones have their own goodwill ambassadors who from very humble backgrounds are breaking grounds.
Our youth have taken the challenge amid all the odds, the death threats, the insults, the freezing of their bank accounts yet they have made two trips to Nigeria and visited many internally displaced.
Our boys have stood up, like Mancho, standing up and living up to the challenge, at a time when every other person is sitting down in his comfort zone, too afraid to speak up.
Even our so called elite and elected representatives have kept sealed lips. They only made some noise when it was close to the Senatorial to give us the impression that they cared about us.
When there was war in the North the entire republic contributed to assist victims of the north. There has been trouble in Ambazonia, who has raised a finger?
This goes further to show that we are in two different countries.
Long live our youths, LENYA FABRICE, TEM MARTIN, ETONONG CHRISTIAN, AYAH AYAH.
Long live the AYAH FOUNDATION.”
With such reactions among many others, it is evidently clear as BaretaNews earlier stated that; Mr. Etoo and his team shall not be welcomed in Ambazonia. He has allowed colonial politics and propaganda from the government of his home country, to blind his humanitarian eyes. His planned so-called peace-mission to Ambazonia at this point in time is not only hypocritical but a political propaganda that must be tamed.
