Former Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan Faults UN in Poor Handling of Southern Cameroons Crisis






Former Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan Slaps the UN for being Reactive rather than Proactive in Conflicts Prevention in Togo and the Cameroons

Former Nigerian President, Peace Crusader, Democracy Icon and Founder of the Goodluck Jonathan Foundation, GoodluckEbele Jonathan, has lambasted the UN for duplicity and not living up to its responsibilities of ensuring global peace and security, especially at a time when West Africa in particular and the World at large is gradually sliding into a quagmire of political instability and anarchy. The former President was speaking in Greece as one of the Guest Speakers at the 15th anniversary of the Dialogue of Civilization at Rhodes, under the theme; “Multi-polarity and Dialogue in Regional and Global Development: Imagining a Possible Future”

According to the African leader, the failure of the world peace body to be decisive in handling prolonged conflicts in the Middle East, notably Iraq and Syria, East Asia and Africa, particularly with the Cameroons as a recent example is a conclusive evidence of her passive and unresponsive disposition in conflict prevention or resolution. He picked holes at the treatment of African citizens by their leaders pertaining to the practice of democratic principles. Like other global leaders during the recent UNGA, the Nigerian leader advocated for meaningful reforms within the UN system that would able it to be proactive in addressing 21st century crisis, particularly in the West African nations of Togo and the Cameroons. Empowering regional bodies like the AU and ECOWAS, he noted will boost their commitment in assisting the UN perform her function of maintaining global peace and Security.

Contextually, the lackadaisical attitude of the UN in handling the present crisis in the Cameroons is an apt example of how the peace and security body has made itself a fire fighting rather than a fire prevention organization. In a one year long crisis whose onus lie squarely at the door step of the UN and her key members of Britain and France, the organization has been merely rhetoric than pragmatic in its reaction. Even with the present genocidal activities of La Republque du Cameroon currently going on in the Southern Cameroons since October 1st 2017, the world’s governing body and its affiliated agencies have only ended at issuing condemnations and calls for dialogue and restrain from both sides from their cozy offices in New York.

It is true that international politics and diplomacy is a very complex and intriguing game where nations scheme for their national and personal interests rather than international interest. There seem to be a kind of internal politics of interests within the Security Council of the UN which must be played and concluded before it is taken out of the council to the larger world. This probably explains the organization’s sluggish approach to conflict prevention and resolution around the world. In the case of Southern Cameroons in particular, it is evident that an eminent restoration of the independence of Ambazonia is a serious threat to the economic and exploitative interest of France who is a permanent member of the UN Security Council and a veto power. It is therefore very likely that immediate action by the UN to forestall an increasing escalation of the situation in Ambaland shall continuously be slothful until when France is convinced that her interest will be protected in an independent Ambazonia. Nevertheless, the Interim Governing Council, as part of their diplomatic offensive must ensure that they threat France, less of an enemy and promise them a cordial diplomatic and economic space in a Federal Republic of Ambazonia.

The declaration of the restoration of the Independence of Southern Cameroons is anchored on truth, justice and the UN’s own chatter and resolutions. It will therefore be highly duplicitous for France to attempt to truncate the freedom of a people and her unborn generations by being insolent to the laws and resolutions of an organization to which she is a key stakeholder, on the altar of greed and French national interest.

    I really want to thank all Ambazonian leaders and also the leadership of SCACUF and the GC. Being at that position is not an easy task, especially with the limited resources, It’s more than hard.

    No words are enough to describe the difficulties of leadership.

    With the little you have, you people have done astronomically and infinitely more the the UN, AU, … with all their billions, man power, resources, … and all what not.

    Not the UN or the AU itself, but the creatures controlling the UN, AU, … are demons, a disgrace to man, mankind, humanity and world. They are the worst thing that ever happen to us African people, all they want is kill us all using evil Africans and take over our resources.

    We Ambazonian are going through one of our darkest moment ever and we want our leadership to know the we are with you, You have proved yourselves beyond doubt. we feel you in our souls and we know from what you have accomplished so far with the little you have, you are truly our leader and all our thrust in you people.

    Keep on the good work, we are waiting, LRC will kill some of us, but they will never ever be able to kill us all.

    Please name calling and profanity are unnecessary be cause we are a people with a rich culture who are resolute about what we want. Nothing is wrong with the road to Buea being bumpy and full traitors, sellout and egomaniacs. The bottom line is that we should stay focus and eschew most of these distraction.
    And on a second thought, we do not owe the french leeches anything. The Vietnamese, Tunisians and Algerians would have been irrelevant today if they considered the bloated ego of the french leeches when they were fighting to regain their dignity.
    french leeches or no french leeches, Southern Cameroons shall prevail. We should learn from history. Remember the atrocities the Japanese committed when they colonized China; and were they not even using Chinese people for target practice by the imperial army? Now imagine who is calling the shots today. Just a mere sneeze from the Chinese sends shiver down the spine of the Japanese. So let us stop talking all this talk about the irrelevant and abominable french leeches; especially as no country in Africa got their independence handed to them in a golden platter.

Genocide in Ambazonia: Colonial Forces Continue to Massacre Children & Razing of Houses






Genocide in Ambazonia: Colonial Forces Continue to Massacre Children & Razing of Houses

Graphic and unbelievable images of genocide and French Cameroon’s colonial brutality have continued to emerge from Southern Cameroons (Ambazonia). The latest of those images and footages is that showing the massacre of Children and their parents in Pete Bakundu, Meme County of the Southern Zone of Ambazonia.

According to reports from the scene, French Cameroun terrorist soldiers invaded the village on August 6th 2018 in the early hours of the morning when most villages were still asleep. In exercise of their rampaging and terrorizing culture, they executed 9 civilians, mostly children. Among those massacred were two young children of 12 and 7 years old, a breastfeeding mother and her two babies. The terrorist forces went further to raze down the entire village and looting civilian properties as other villagers scamper into nearby cocoa farms for safety.

Elsewhere still in Ambazonia, 7 innocent civilians were also massacred in Kumbo and Wum, Northern zone of Ambazonia (including the son of a serving Senator in the colonial Parliament of French Cameroun) following an invasion of communities by the French Cameroun terrorists. They had invaded the communities in response to a self-defense action by Ambazonian rebels in which five terrorist Gendarmes were taken out setting up illegal barricades and extorting money from the defenseless villagers. About 4 other innocent citizens are also reported to have been massacred since Monday in Manyu County.

Civilian massacres and burning of villages remain a daily occurrence in Ambazonia as the colonial regime of French Cameroun, aided by some members of the international community is bent of wiping out the entire people of Southern Cameroons. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to conclude that the Rwanda Genocide is currently repeating itself in the Southern Cameroons under the full watch and supervision of those that had sworn never to allow such happened again.

Massacre in Bakundu, South West Region

The 86 years old blood sucker Paul Biya continue to spill the blood of innocent citizens to remain in Power and to hold tight on his colony of Ambazonia. Some greedy members of the international community like Squire Patton Boggs, a US based Law Firm are aiding the regime to hide the massacre from global attention.

The Law firm has been hired by the bloody regime to lobby for the old dictator as he seeks to become the eternal king of the La Republic du Cameroun and by extension the occupied territory of Ambazonia. Moral justice demands that said law firm should turn down such a deal. It is shameful for any US lobby organization to accept at this juncture to coverup genocide being committed on Camera by an 86 years old dictator who has refused to use simple dialogue and negotiation to settle a simple conflict.

As the massacre continues with criminal organizations abating the killings, the Ambazonian people have however refused to give up their destinies to a blood sucking colonial regime. The people have resolved to resist the oppressor until the last man standing.

How Quarter Head Allegedly Set up Massacred Ambazonians in Buea on Ghost town Day

How Quarter Head Allegedly Set up Massacred Ambazonians in Buea on Ghost town Day

BaretaNews reporters have now gotten firsthand accounts from survivor victims and other eye witnesses in Bakweri town of how terrorist forces of La Republic du Cameroun (LRC) massacred more than 9 young men in Buea, Capital of Ambazonia, on Monday July 30, 2018.

The boys were playing different games (ludo and cards) while smoking weed in a popular weed joint patronized even by colonial forces; the quarter head, a retired warder set up the young men for execution; Some were killed on the scene of action while others ferried in a military hilux and executed in a banana plantation after Liongo village, towards Ekona. Colonial Mayor of Buea, Patrick Ekema showed up shortly after with AK47 wielding terrorist forces and seized the corpses to an unknown destination; how the life of a “francophone victim” was spared after identifying himself to the terrorist forces; all those massacred identified as native Bakwerians born and breath in Buea; how the family of Esambe Roland Ndune saw him dead in a vision and pleaded with him not to go out on ghost town days.

What actually happened to the Young Men in Buea?

According to a survivor of the attack, it was around mid-day when more than 10 of them (young men) gathered at their usual joint in Bakweri town – under a tree right inside the quarter where they always come and play bet games popularly known as” njambo” in local parlance. While playing their games, they suddenly heard a gunshot and saw one of their colleagues down in a pool of blood.

“I don’t know how I and others suddenly found ourselves running into the nearby bush. As we were running, we continued hearing gunshots, its only after the shooting ended that two of us came out of the bush as we heard people crying and shouting… I was shocked to see my friends all shot dead and soaked in blood” said a survivor.

Narrating his own side of the story, the second survivor told BaretaNews reporters that while he was on his way to the joint, he passed in front of the house of the quarter head Mr. Tonga, a retired warder and over heard him telling somebody on phone that; “they are already here playing njambo and smoking banga (Indian herm.)”

The victim said he didn’t take the phone conversation of the quarter head serious because he (the quarter head) knows very well most of the boys who often come to gather under the tree to play games. It was only after the attack that he started thinking who could have told the colonial forces that they were in that place at that particular time, considering that the scene of action is very faraway from the main road.

According to him, there are some colonial military officers who often joined them on weekends at the joint to smoke weed and play “njambo.”  As proof that it was the quarter head who allegedly set up the victims, residents of that quarter have given different versions of how he had been referring to the youngmen who often meet under the tree to smoke and play games as Amba boys.

The population gathered the four corpses in the neighborhood and identified them to be all children of the neighborhood born and breath in Buea. As the mourning and waling was ongoing, the colonial mayor of Buea suddenly showed up with a gun guided by a group of colonial forces. He demanded the youths to bring forth all the corpses which they then ferried away to an unknown destination.

How Esambe Roland was Killed and how family members begged him not to go out

As all these were happening, the population did not know that other victims were shot and they ran and died in the nearby bushes, while three others were caught and ferried away in the military hilux after the attack. It was only two days that the corpses of the other six victims were discovered, including that of Esambe Roland Ndune, a resident of Sandpit, who was arrested alongside two others, including a francophone (who was later released) and the other two executed in the banana plantation after Liongo village.

Sources close to the Esambe family say that according to two of the survivors, the colonial forces arrive the joint when they were playing ludo game. Among the LRC military terrorists was an anglophone guy who was leading the way and knows Esambe Roland aka Grand Dakwas very well. According to the story, the Ambazonian born military terrorist motioned to Grand Dakwas and his friends to run for their lives and fired a warning shot into the air.

As they started running they were pursued by the other terrorist forces, shot the others and caught two of them. Dakwas was shot on the leg and also caught while two others escaped unhurt. The three arrested were carried inside the military vehicle and in the course of ferrying them to the execution site, they discovered the Francophone guy among the three and he was set free.

They then took Dakwas and the other victim to the plantation at Liongo just after Muea, tied their hands and faces then shot, killed and dumped their bodies there. The family of Esambe Roland was thus alerted by the guys who successfully escaped after they did not see him among those shot dead. It was later the freed Francophone guy came to report that Esambe Roland aka Dakwas and another person were taken away. Their corpses were later discovered on Wednesday in the Mousaka banana Plantation already in a state of decomposition.

According to our source, family members forewarned Dakwas that morning pleading that he should not go out as they had dreams that he was shot by the military. “Even his small boy child held him that morning not to go out until he (Dakwas) pulled himself away from the child and went before this unfortunate incident happened to him.” The source added.

The various accounts on the massacre have all the proofs of a well-orchestrated incident with the quarter head, retired Warder Tonga and other high-level personalities within the municipality allegedly  in the know of what happened. Considering the fact that 98% percent of the victims are native Bakwerians, does it therefore corroborate the claim by some Men of God in Buea that there is a grand occultic agenda to spill the blood of a good number of young Bakwerians for electioneering sacrifices in LRC like the Santa elites already allegedly did in the Piyin-Menka Massacre?

We Cannot Risk Our Lifes and Businesses to Please an Academic Fraudster – Buea Business Owners Speak.

We Cannot Risk Our Lives and Businesses to Please an Academic Fraudster – Buea Business Owners Speak.

For a week, life in Buea, capital of Ambazonia has been very timid following the sealing of more than 600 businesses premises by colonial mayor of Buea as punishment for respecting ghost towns declared by the Interim Government of Ambazonia. Mayor Ekema Patrick had gone ahead to respect his promise of sealing business premises that respected the ghost towns.

Apart from banks that were reopened on Wednesday last week, the other sealed businesses were only to be opened upon the payment of the sum of 50000 francs each. The business owners were also expected to sign an undertaking committing themselves not to yield to the call for ghost towns or they have their businesses forever.

Majority of the business owners therefore decided not to pay or sign any undertaking thereby staying away from their shops until Wednesday August 1st. After his failed march for peace, colonial mayor Ekema Patrick was forced to succumb to the determination of the business owners not to pay or sign any undertaking, by declaring a so-called clemency for all those whose businesses were sealed. He however promised to seal them again next Monday if the people still go ahead to respect the ghost towns.

BaretaNews therefore caught up with some of the business owners in Buea on Wednesday August 1st to get their views on the closure of their shops.

“Giving him that money and signing that undertaking would have been an act of self-incrimination. I have the right to close my shop anytime and any day. I have paid his (Ekema’s) taxes and he doesn’t have the right to tell me when to lock and not to lock my shop. It is my shop and my money, it is not council money” said a Molyko based shop owner whose business was also sealed.

“My brother, when Ambas and La Republic fight, the masses suffer. But we the people must be wise. Ekema and his military cannot protect us but we see Amba boys in the quarters every day. So, we better the respect the instructions of the leaders of the struggle because at least they are all fighting for us all. So, it is our own sacrifice for the revolution. Ekema can seal this shop for three years, but so long as the goods inside will not get rotten, I cannot respect his foolish order” another shop owner noted.

The third person interviewed was very blunt and hard on the colonial mayor.

“Young man (referring to BaretaNews reporter), I cannot afford to risk my life and business because I want to please or respect the ego of an academic fraudster. This struggle is more than Paul Biya, so Ekema cannot be the one to stop it. I respect the ghost town not because I am afraid of Amba boys but because I also want to make my own sacrifice for our freedom. In fact we the population are afraid of the military and not Amba boys … don’t mind that his (Ekema’s) noise, I ‘ll see how he will keep on sealing shops until the struggle is over. I’ll advise him to just seal-off the whole town for respecting ghost town.”

From the views of the three business owners contacted, it is clear that the Mayors instructions shall be again defiled next Monday which is another ghost town day. It is therefore going to be a long fight for Mayor Ekema Patrick.

With a bounty of 3 million francs now set by the interim government for anyone who will arrest or provide lead information to Mayor Ekema’s arrests, it is only left to be seen if he will continue with his colonial rampaging in the town next week.
