Interim Government of Ambazonia Creates State-Own Satellite Television

The Interim Government (IG) of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia, has announced the creation of a state-own satellite television dubbed; ABC AMBA TV.

In a public notice number CoS-FRA 002/18, signed on July 30, 2018, the Chief of Staff to the IG, Professor Martin Ayim revealed that ABC Amba tv is going to be the only television where for the interest of Ambazonians, the government will fully control the editorial policies and messaging. He added that the tv is going to be of better quality, cost the Ambazonian people less, and also cover the entire continent of Africa.

According to the IG, It’s the only TV she is going to be funding and emphasized that no one penny from my trip to Buea (MTTB) funds will be used to fund the television. Based on this, It wouldn’t be wrong therefore to say that the television is a free will donation to the people of Ambazonia through the IG by a good will Ambazonian(s).

“ABC Amba TV will be run by a Director not a CEO nominated by the Government. Because ABC Amba TV is owned by the People of Ambazonia with Government as custodian, it will never be privatized. It will remain a Public service News Outlet of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia.”

“The Interim Government blesses and encourages business-like models like SCBC but will not fund them nor engage in privatization in any equation. ABC Amba TV will be up and running in under two Weeks.” The notice concluded.

The creation of ABC Amba tv comes after a series of disagreements between the IG and the executive board of the Southern Cameroons Broadcasting Corporation (SCBC) on management and editorial issues. According to Chris Anu, Secretary of States for Communication and ICT, SCBC has not been the property of the people of Ambazonia as earlier claimed by its management and so leading to disagreements on editorial and management issues.

    It is one of the worst moves by the IG so far. In fact a double shot on the IG’s foot. Whatever grievances the IG had against SCBC, the reasonable thing to do was to settle the issues amicably. Creating a new Tv station at this critical time is a big misplaced priority.

    And why is the IG so quick to point out that no cent from the MTTB fund shall be used to fund the project? The same IG that said not so long ago that MTTB wasn’t an IG initiative but a side project.

    There is no sense in discrediting SCBC just because it is set up in a way that the IG doesn’t like.

    You can create a hundred TV channels, it will simply take away the trust and confidence we all had in the IG until now.

    This decision has Chris Anu written all over it. If that be the case Mr. Secretary, if you remember how much Milan Atam was criticized for calling the shots from behind the scenes in Sissiku’s government, you are right on the same path and the People of Ambazonia will not spare you.

    Where is your “radio one battery” you created recently?
    Creating a TV channel is nothing, keeping it running is the real deal and let me ask… will you also bully us into watching the new TV? Our loyalty to SCBC, morally and financially has just been strengthened and will remain unshaken.

    SCBC remains The People’s TV and the most laudable achievement by the people of Ambazonia. The unspoken reason for the move – your strategy to Americanize our liberation struggle will fail woefully. Moves like this one are the reason our fighters on ground zero are losing faith in Ambazonians in the diaspora by the day. We derail the energy that should power the struggle onto trivialities.

    So SCBC wasn’t IG-bound enough. You need to create a CRTV like channel that the IG can manipulate at will. Message well received. You are what we are running away from!

    What is wrong with us People of Ambazonia? Are we cursed or what? Why do we always shoot back at ourselves?

      Mr. Emmanuel sir,

      I share your concern with the I G creating a government-owned TV channel. You write well sir but before chewing to pieces this move by the IG, I think you ought to have watched and analyzed Cris Anu’s presentation on why this TV station will be created. I also urge you to watch another video presentation by a couple of Ambazonians in South Africa who criticized the planned IG creation of a TV station, citing it just as you did, as misplaced priority. On my part, I weighed explanations from both parties and took into consideration the immediate response by The Southern Cameroons Congress of the People’s (SCCOP) spokesperson Dr.Fohtung before voicing my opinion. And my stance is that another TV station is a welcome move, much like the dozens of frontline fighters in our ongoing revolution to restore West Cameroon Statehood, who are all sporting/hoisting/singing Ambazonian flag, Ambazonian anthem and focused on reaching BUEA.

      Perhaps the disagreement that led to this idea of an IG TV station is a good thing, each station providing and serving as checks and balance. I listen to and watch videos of Dr. Akwanga, Dr. Ayaba, Boh Herbert, John Mbah Akuroh, Tapang Ivo, Dr. Sako, each of them committed to reaching Buea but shooting from a slightly different angle. If our new nation is to distinguish itself from the totalitarian French vassal state of LRC, Ambazonia should be one in which the voices of all and sundry must be heard and tolerated. Monopoly of the media gives rise to dictatorship and manipulation of the people, something we West Cameroonians have endured for decades under Ahidjo’s CNU and Biya’s CPDM governments.

      So, dear brother Emmanuel, to answer your last three questions, there’s nothing wrong with us Ambazonians, we are NOT cursed, and we are not shooting ourselves in the back with respect to the creation of another media outlet. I appreciate your write up and advocate for more civil debates on issues of import that impact on our collective goal of REACHING BUEA in the shortest possible time. Have a great midweek dear comrade. Aluta continua.

      As a monthly citizenship levy-paying Ambazonian, a keen observer of the activities of individuals in this revolution, I whole heartedly endorse the move by the IG to open a new Tv station to keep driving revolutionary thoughts into ears of Ambazonians. I don’t have the time for a line by lone rebuttal of the above write-up but will ask people to observe themselves in silence as to what transpired leading up to the decision to have a new Tv station

    Another CRTV in disguise.

    Some of you, with your very large mandibles, hiding out there, especially in USA must be thinking Anglos are fools.

    IG or whatever, enjoy your show while it lasts.

    But don’t forget that your time of fame is almost over.

    IG is not different from Etoudi. It is all a MATTER of POWER and the CAKE.

    FREEING of ANGLOS is the very last AGENDA on your table.

    Ndoh Emmanu is very right there, Ambalanders back home are beginning to figure out the END GAME.

    And some would start scratching their bald heads when Ekema is going to take back full control of our FAKO, and abandon the likes of Anu-s with their TV stations, and we’ll wait for you guys to come and occupy Buea, and sing HOSANNA for you.

    Brother Mbeuh, thank you for an excellent rebuttal. We must learn to agree to disagree amicably rather than just follow and follow like zombies which is the cancer that has plagued LRC to this day.
    Personally, the creation of another tv Station should be a good idea. However, to initiate such an ambitious undertaking while the self defense forces at ground zero are poorly equipped raises more questions than answers.

    Nobody has asked any Ambazonian to stop fighting for control of our country. The problem is some of us are too impatient. We have come a long way in just 1 year, other revolutions have taken much longer to get where we are today. A satellite radio station is an excellent idea, broadcast all over Africa to win public support from other Africans and the world. The Butcher of Ambazonia has been threatening to shut down SCBC let’s remember what happened to our leaders. Money talks, new president in South Africa, biya is a corruptor. Satellite will reach more people, more is better. Let’s wait and see the content, If everything is towards Buea then fine. Contribute in your way everyday, as a medical doctor, carpenter, benskinner, buyam sellam, politician, soldier, policeman or woman, electrician, musician, brick layer, iron bender, taximan, DJ, broadcaster, humanitarian, social worker, financial support from the diaspora, as village vigilantes, do what you can, don’t blame other groups except those that want another union with lrc.

    With everything we have heard and seen and the silence of some, I can only say this is the right move.

    The IG should keep doing everything to create a truly unified front of those willing.

    We are waiting to see how ABC will function.

    We want to see all our activist the have united constantly on ABC.

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.

Video of Biya’s forces killings

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.
