Maurice Kamto Condemns Anglophone Bloodbath, Calls on Supreme Court To Declare Vacancy Of Power



Maurice Kamto




October 1, 2017 will go in the political history of our country as a black Sunday. The unity of our nation has been openly questioned. Several deaths, many injuries and important material damages were recorded; in short, blood, fire, tears was the price paid by citizens of the Northwest and Southwestern Regions of Cameroon. All these lost or broken lives could have been saved and the threat of the unity of the country avoided if the Government had not decided to let the situation become worse by rejecting a constructive dialogue with the Anglophone leaders. The CRM condemns this irresponsible attitude and holds the Government accountable for both registered deads and the serious threat on the unity of Cameroon.

The CRM requests that an independent inquiry be put up, to establish the political and operational responsibilities; the exact number of victims and to clarify cases of persons missing in the recent tragedy in the northwest and southwest regions.

Until the eve of October 1, 2017, the CRM had implored the Government to do everything possible to avoid a confrontation between security and defense forces on the one hand and populations on the other. Observing that after an untimely travel to New York, President BIYA had deserted his people, just a few days to the fateful October 1st 2017, despite the insecurity that was eminent in the country. The CRM suggested to the Presidents of the Senate and the National Assembly to form a PARLIAMENTARY PEACE DELEGATION to urgently go and meet our anglophone compatriots.. The purpose of such a Delegation would have then been to prepare the ground for a sincere dialogue to find solutions to the deep causes of the legitimate political claims by Anglophones.

Unfortunately, this latest proposition by the CRM was not accepted. It should be recalled that at the outbreak of the crisis, our party the CRM, which had quickly understood the magnitude of the crisis and the risks involved, had recommended a sincere and inclusive national dialogue in which the root causes – and not just consequences – of the anglophone problems would be dealt with in all aspects. But the arrogant and privileged few of the Regime laughed at us, thinking that only force and repression were the adequate response to the frustrations and political demands of the populations of the northwest and southwest regions.

Besides the rejection of the CRM’s relentless call for a political dialogue, a secret cabinet was set up urgently, that carried out a support to the smoky rumour that, I was planning to use the frustrations of the Anglophones to overthrow the Regime in a popular revolt. This ridiculous rumour is gone as it came.

After all these, the CRM and other political parties, national organizations and personalities, friendly countries of Cameroon and international organizations (UN, European Union) advocated a political dialogue with the protestors but these equally fell on deaf ears!

As usual, the Regime preferred confrontation to dialogue. Moreover, it has instrumentalised certain “media” to distill hatred and divisions among Cameroonians. Thus, with the regime orders, those who prone dialogue were demonized and presented as enemies of the fatherland. And, some overzealous officials of the regime have embarked on the preparation of confrontation that they thought appropriate. Their focus being the extreme minority Anglophones who were tagged secessionists, rather than paying attention to their political claims as expressed by the vast majority of Anglophone populations, who are simply requesting to be considered as part of the Republic.

Later on, the regime’s war-lords have finally understood that the only and only way to a lasting solution to this problem, which undermines our common destiny as a nation, is DIALOGUE. It is indispensable, inevitable, and unavoidable. But the government and his acolytes who have being postponing this dialogue, only to unnecessarily shed the blood of Anglophone Cameroonians, will be accountable to the nation and to history.

It now seems that we have all unanimously realised that political dialogue is the sole option. But, the CRM notices that the current government is now unable to resolve this crisis. The President of the Republic has deserted, members of his Government have been discredited by the people and the Parliament is equally powerless.

It is therefore time for the Supreme Court-Constitutional Council to declare the vacancy of power in order to allow the country to renew its leaders and to set up new institutions capable of resolving the crisis and to deal with the many problems and challenges facing the country.

    Opportunist. Who told you majority of Southern Cameroonians do not want a restoration of the independence of Southern Cameroons? If you were in power you will do the same thing as Biya. La Republique is controlled from Paris. The French decide what happens irrespective of who the President of la Republique is.

    It is unfortunate that many have been sitting on the fence until we now have a situation where this low life called Biya and his thuggish Beti clans men have created an irreconcilable schism between Southern Cameroon and LRC.
    We appreciate the fact that the CRM finally got its facts right but at this juncture, we are done with LRC.
    How is it possible that the majority in LRC will be jubilating while this french stooge called Biya while frolicking in switzerland has the audacity to send terrorist masquerading as LRC army to massacre Southern Cameroonians?

    We successfully survive the October 1st massacre and we are currently going through and surviving the post October 1st genocide and ethnic cleansing currently taking place as I’m

    We know foreign Armies and France are helping the Army of Biya but they will not succeed in their undertakings.

    Everything will come to light.

    We Ambazonians must not allow our minds to be misguided, manipulated by anything, any organization, …
    Resistance and our togetherness are some of the things that has brought us this far.

    The UN, AU, … are not the ones that brought us this for, only our determination, willpower, God consciousness did and we are not giving these up. Honestly, with everything that has visited us this late two week as a people, I can now say we are truly doing good, It could have been worst but our almighty creator is watching over us.

    Let stay focus, calm and resolute.

    When injustice, terror, savagery, perversion, barbarism become law, unconditionally resistance become a holy duty.

    The resistance continues, one for all, all for one. We are in phase two and succeeding.

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.

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.
