“Contrary to rumours, the French government has not even one soldier on Ambazonia Soil. We have accessed the situation and have never for once seen the need to deploy troops, to come kill citizens who more or less are not terrorists.” These are the utterances of Gilles Thibault, French Ambassador to la Republique du Cameroun (LRC).
He was answering pertinent questions from denizens of Northern Zone, recently, while on a fact-finding mission on the root-cause of the Southern Cameroons crisis. He also sought possible ways of putting a lasting end to the crisis.
According to the French Official, his country has never nursed any plan on assisting LRC in escalating the way in Southern Cameroons. He refuted all allegations that France is providing LRC with ammunition, intelligence gathering, and foot soldiers, to battle it out with Restoration Forces.
“We understand the situation in Ambazonia. We cannot fuel the crisis by assisting the (LRC) government. I should say it here, loud and clear, that we are not assisting the LRC in anyway, be it with ammunition, intelligence gathering, or foot soldiers,” Ambassador Gilles Thibault said.
Dialogue is Key To Solving the Crisis
The French Diplomat sue for dialogue as the only credible tool to solving the restive situation in Ambazonia. According to him, an inclusive, pacific, and taboo-less dialogue, will see a lasting peace to the crisis. He pleaded for denizens of Ambazonia to accept the dialogue process, whenever it is called up. He indicated, he shall stop at nothing, in pursuing for the colonial regime of Yaounde, to initiate the dialogue process.
“Dialogue is the only way out of this crisis. My government shall continue to mount pressure on the (LRC) government so an inclusive, pacific, and a taboo-less dialogue process can be sorted out. I pray and wish that when such time comes, you all seated here, and even those out, shall join forces so we can put an end to this crisis,” the ambassador said.
Meanwhile, the Ambazonian denizens who attended the meeting, pressed for withdrawal of troops in Ambaland. Many say, LRC is committing war crimes in Ambazonia, and it must be stop before things get to the worse.
“Our villages are being burnt, women are being raped, men are being killed, maimed, or arbitrarily arrested, and what have you. We live in total fear, because the (colonial) army invade our privacy on daily basis, and make life difficult. We can only have a credible dialogue process if you tell them to stop the atrocities they are causing on our land,” Shey Abraham Musa said.
The meeting also saw the French diplomat recording all the plights of the people, while speaking subtly on the people to restrain from violence on their part.
It should be noted that the meeting held at a time when a similar one was organised by the US government in LRC capital, Yaounde. It grouped Civil Society Activists, Religious leaders, and some politicians. All the meetings sought to have a clear path, wherein, dialogue process can hold.

Mancho Bibixy: OF Peaceful One Who Preach Injustice And Regime Designated Terrorist-Video
This Sunday morning, we pay homage to Bibixy Mancho, a man of peace, a human rights defender, a man who denounced the poor working conditions of LRC’s policemen. Mancho decried injustice against all. But today, the very same people who he protected from and angry, marginalised people have turned around to massacre our people.
He said, ‘the police are here to protect you… even the police are suffering these same things …’ .
Mancho held a bible and preached peace and development. LRC to thank him declared him a terrorist.
Brethren, do not lose hope. Falter not. The testimony of Mancho’s case is one powerful justification among hundreds of others. Our people have suffered. We have throughout this informal union with Yaounde paid the top prize to make that country work. We paid with the blood of our fathers, mothers, children and friends. Our communities were robbed of our resources. We’ve been tortured. We’re broken like clay pots. We gave them education, resources, a proper language, political freedoms, human rights … we showed them the route to another world far apart from scams Paris had locked them in.
Mancho during early days of protest
Today they call us terrorists. Isn’t it funny? The same fellows who organised a genocide against bamilekes and bassas, a fratricide which prompted our statesmen from West Cameroon to invest all their political capital to save their people. We hosted thousands of their refugees and protected them from the bloody hands of Yaounde and Paris. … Our formidable hospitality created what they refer to as the 11th province.
Brethren, we bring you these thoughts so you can remember the nature of the heart of the Yaounde regime.
Be not troubled. God has seen their treachery. He has seen how your good heart overflowing with kindness has been repaid repeatedly with evil. Southern Cameroons Ambazonia, the Lord has decided to free you.
On this day of the Lord, pray for heroes whose blood is bearing the land, pray for the mourning nation of Ambazonia, pray for recent martyrs like Rev Fr Sob, pray for our mothers who are now also our fathers, pray for our people competing for space with animals in the bush, pray for our leaders in colonial jail – Sisiku Ayuk Tabe Julius and his cabinet, pray for those who currently lead us and those who are actively defending our human rights on the ground and our right to #SelfDetermination.
Do not be afraid.
MURDER OF A PRIEST: IT WAS NOT A STRAY BULLET OR CROSSFIRE
The ‘Anglophone’ Community is still in shock following the death of Rev. Father Alexander Sob, Parish Priest of Bomaka Local Government Area, Buea Diocese, Fako County. Father Sob passed on to glory yesterday in Muyuka Local Government Area as a result of gunshots. The Catholic church Vicar General Father Asek this morning released a statement announcing the death of Father Sob indicating that he was shot without details as to whose bullets did Father Sob bowed out of this earth. However, the how and the ways he died is still dangling in the tongues of the people of Ambazonia, Christians and family members as many versions are coming up. Ray Timah, Southern Cameroons Political Scientist presents an accurate eyewitness account which indicates Father Sob was deliberately shot at by La Republique Du Cameroun Soldiers. Ray Timah was speaking to a Muyuka Denizen who drove Father Sob to the hospital as he gave up the ghost. You may want to read on
IT WAS NOT A STRAY BULLET OR CROSSFIRE.
Father Sob was shot at close range by the Military. I have spoken to an eyewitness who gave a vivid account about the incident. He maintained that Father Sob was no where near his Mothers house at the time of the unfortunate incident. Rev. had stopped in front of popular store known as ” CY STORE” around the Muyuka main park. His intention was to wait for the tense atmosphere between the Military and restoration forces to die down as gunshots could be heard from afar.
A few minutes later, a group of military men approaches his parked car and asked him to take down his windscreen. In the course of doing that, an officer open fire directly to his chest. Note that he was shot twice at two different positions through the screen on the drivers side. They shot him and left and the owner of the shop who had taken cover as a result of the gunshot attempted to rescue Father Sob.
He was moved to the passenger side of the same car he was shot in and transported to the hospital which was already late.
The Eyewitness added..” Nothing occurred like a stray bullet or crossfire. As a matter of fact, no exchange of gunfire was around CY store at the time of the incident. The area was a safe zone at the time, that is why Rev chose to park there for his safety. He was murdered. It was intentional. The position of the two bullet wounds could be seen on his right and left side of his chest. That tells a lot.”
What caught my attention
The picture on the Facebook wall of Father Sob caught my attention. You can see him smiling directly behind Jacque Fame Ndongo during a celebration in Sasse . He never knew he was standing behind one the devil behind this war that cut his life short.
Rest in Peace Father.
Southern Cameroons Revolutionary Leaders Condemn Human Rights Watch Report On Cameroons Crisis
Southern Cameroons Revolutionary Leaders have condemned and criticised the recently release human rights reports in the ongoing war between La Republique Du Cameroun and the Federal Republic of Ambazonia. Dr. Ayaba Cho Lucas in a statement said the Human Rights Watch is a MOCKERY of investigative reporting. Meanwhile Dr. Akwanga Ebenezer described the Human Rights Watch as becoming ‘The Holy See’ of 2018, mimicking the Vatican whom during the course of World War II, erroneously sided with the Holocaust chief Architect, Adolf Hitler. To Dr. Akwanga, the Human Right Watch is tacitly siding with a tyrannical octogenarian whose penchant for Ambazonia blood holds no frontier!. BaretaNews brings to you details of their statements
OFFICE OF THE LEADER AMBAZONIA GOVERNING COUNCIL
Dear Soldiers of the Revolution,
The Human Rights Watch Report is a mockery of investigative reporting. It is hollow and paints a deminitive perspective of the brutality of the occupation. There is an ongoing genocide in Ambazonia characterized by acts of systematic brutality, torture and war crimes. All of these crimes are well documented and should get Biya and his Generals to an international Criminal institution. The Ambazonia Governing Council will be presenting counterfactuals to challenge the report and its unacceptable recommendations.
For more than 150 years, others have insisted to speak for us. First it was the British, then the Germans and then the British again and later Nigeria and then Cameroon. We have never had the chance to speak for ourselves and to represent our interest. We will henceforth speak for ourselves, paint our own reality and build and defend our own narratives. We have never been Cameroonians and so we are not separating from Cameroon. We are not Restorationist either, for Fon Dinka already restored our independence; affirmed in 1999 by Justice Ebong and cemented in 2017 by Seseko Ayuk Tabe. We are defending this independence and we will do so until the last Cameroon soldier and administrators are bundled out of Homeland.
Yesterday l watched a video wherein more than 1500 Ambazonian men, women, children, dance groups received the supreme General of the Ambazonia Defence Forces and and the installation of commanders of different brigades. The silent majority has started showing its power in the land of their birth. Ambazonia is finally ours and we must defend it to the bitter end. The promise of a better tomorrow in a land of equal opportunity and a responsible and accountable government based on the people’s consent is becoming a reality in our lifetime. It is all thanks to the unshakable resolve and focus of the NeverAgain Generation.
The defence of the homeland must remain our top priority. We must continue to make Ambaland ungovernable, increase the cost of the occupation and ensure that in the coming months no alien government and its collaborators dare attempt to use our territory for any electoral charade. As we strive for the recognition of our independence and statehood, taking control of territory must instruct the development of our strategies.I congratulate our people for initiating and enduring a few more days of ghost towns and the daring of our Defence Forces in enforcing the laws of the Homeland.I call on all of you who have doubted our unshakable resolve, questioned our strategy and contemplated our readiness to liberate and bequeath to the next generation a better country than we inherited to join me in this last phase of our struggle.
PHASE 4 in my mind.
God should protect all of you still standing and lift all those struggling so together as a people we should get to the promise land.
Dr. CHO AYABA
Leader Ambazonia Governing Council
SOLDIER OF THE REVOLUTION
Dr. Akwanga Ebenezer reacts
Shallow misunderstanding from people of goodwill (Human Rights Watch) especially in times of enormous crisis like the situation in my Homeland is outrightly outrageous and worse than blatant lies from people of bad faith (La Republique du Cameroun). During the course of World War II, the Vatican erroneously sided with the Holocaust chief Architect, Adolf Hitler. Today, through it’s latest ‘report’, Human Rights Watch has become ‘The Holy See’ of 2018, tacitly siding with a tyrannical octogenarian whose penchant for Ambazonia blood holds no frontier! SOCADEF, the SCYL and Ambazonians will not be cowed by malicious intentions of a human rights watchdog whose activities have only encouraged barbaric rulership, annexation and assimilation in the continent of Africa for decades. We will stand up to you! DR. EBENEZER D. AKWANGA
