Senator Charles Mbella Moki, is a colonial CPDM politician, former colonial mayor of Buea and currently one of the observer Ambazonian Senators in the colonial Senate of La Republique du Cameroun (LRC). Following his re-election in the banned Senatorial elections in Southern Cameroons, the CPDM praise singer, made of mockery of the people’s revolution, by telling a very fat political lie, having maintain grave silence on the issues for a pretty long time since the escalation of things. He told a lie, which can only be associated with CPDM politicians trying to manipulate the ignorant masses.
Senator Moki is a young Ambazonian with a lot of youthful exuberance that could have been used to challenge the atrocities of the colonial regime in the colonial Senate in Yaoundé. His voice and critical political inputs as a colonial senator, were very much needed in the wake of the Amba Revolution, and especially during the mayhem unleashed by his political Sister, Nalova Lyonga on the students of the University of Buea.
Unfortunately and like any other Ambazonian CPDM slave present at the colonial rubber stamp Parliament, the young Senator played to the gallery. He has spent his entire five year mandate observing, clapping and rubber stamping government bills, with very little or no tangible achievements. In a system where even the tabling of private member bills by parliamentarians appears to be a taboo, the Political desk of BaretaNews can basically conclude that the Senator’s five years in Yaoundé as a pioneer Senator, were wasted years, with the only major achievement being the salaries and allowances received from the system for these years, else the money would have also been embezzled by others.
The Lying Mbella Moki
Despite all these political complacencies, the Senator came out in a recent interview with a local television to boast that one of his second term manifestos as a colonial senator is work towards a permanent solution to the present conflict. According to him, he must fight to ensure that what he calls the Anglophone Problem is solved once and for all by the colonial regime. This is laughable, isn’t it? For two years that the crisis has been ragging, the Senator, like his fellow CPDM senators swallowed stones that blocked their throats from voicing out the concerns of the people they represent. Even when he had any of such opportunities in public domains to speak on the burning revolutionary issues, Senator Moki could only be seen speaking the language of those who can be described in the Pidgin English as “two side cutlass”. One could not directly deduce whether he was speaking for the people he represents or for the colonial regime in Yaoundé.
Even with the transformation of the crisis into a full scale conflict, leading to the declaration of war, the burning of villages and the annihilation of innocent villagers in Ambazonia by colonial agents, the youthful and once hot blooded colonial senator has remained mute, watching from a distance like all his colleagues. The Senator has rather chosen to engage but in a local political wrestling championship with his former servant, the present colonial mayor of Buea, who now also believes that he is the boss of Buea and Mbella Moki must dance the CPDM political dance according to his (Ekema’) dictates.
How Senator Charles Mbella Moki intends to ensure that the present war declared by his colonial boss Paul Biya, is resolved once and for all in his second term as a colonial senator, is an analysis for another day. BaretaNews can only remind him that he is a disappointment to the masses who believed so much in his political and youthful exuberance to speak for them. From his antecedents as Mayor of Buea, Southern Cameroonians expected more from him at this trying times in the lives of the people. The people are watching and only time shall tell.
