No French Soldier Is On Ambazonia Soil – Ambassador






“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.

    France can not be trusted with efforts to peaceful resolution of the crisis because she is a beneficiary of the injustice been perpetrated on Ambazonians by LRC.

    Mr ambassador, pictures don’t lie. Your country is the root cause of the problem and certainly would not be part of solution.

    Mr ambassador , please you are selling after the market . We shall never forgive you wicked and undesirable creatures .

    France has never won a war anyway. Not in Haiti, not in Vietnam, not in Algeria, nowhere.

    But France is a specialist on genocide. That is what they are good at. Killing unarmed people in their hundreds of thousands. What is happening now in Ambazonian is just introduction. Waiting until it becomes absolutely clear that the French has lost. Lake Nyos incident will look like heaven.

    We need to be ready to take care of hundreds of thousands of death.

    God bless Ambazonian.
    We shall live free or die.

    This fool says quote, “… that an inclusive….taboo-less…dialogue…” what is the taboo in an inclusive dialogue? These people ( France, Britain and the UN) continue to think that West Cameroonians are naive and stupid. They still think that this is the era of our primary school educated forefathers (Foncha, Muna and Jua) whom they outsmarted in a non existent legal agreement to take possession of our country, Ambazonia.
    Any discussion must include the ONLY option to separate peacefully.

    Brother Mbeuh, let us give credit where it is due. The french outsmarted Pa Foncha and Muna. Bobe Jua was one proud Southern Cameroonian who was betrayed by Pa Muna. The position of Bobe Jua as far as our independence was concern was similar to that of Dr. Endeley.
    Ambalanders, be very careful. The French always speak with both sides of their mouth.

    The ambassador is correct. There are no French soldiers on ground. They call them nowadays military advisors. Hahaha

    We neither can trust France nor Great Britain. They fooled as once and will try it again.

    I love Southern Cameroonians. We are not as naive as our francophone cousins. The French president, ambassador and minister are talking now because they have seen that our exit is near. When they cut our internet, arrested our leaders and committed other atrocities against they pretended not to see. Anyhow from their experience in Algeria they are very well placed to advice Yaoundé.
