When the crisis started members of BAS who were then speaking on personal accounts said Anglophones were disturbing. Now that Maurice Kamto was arrested and his victory allegedly stolen, they now see reasons to support Ambazonians because they believe that pressure from both sides will cause the government to free the leaders.
To my understanding, the problem in Southern Cameroons is a legal, constitutional international issue linked with the UN, France, and Britain. It is a problem which can only be solved internationally. This point can be buttressed by the fact that Ambazonia leaders were kidnapped in Nigeria and crossed (an international boundary)
Switzerland has offered her services to mediate and the UN, EU, US, UK have given their push. However, the case of Maurice Kamto is an internal political problem and it’s not new. Kamto is not the first political leader to go to jail. It will be selfish for any group to link the Kamto arrest with the over 57 years old story of Southern Cameroons. It shows greed, selfishness, and short-sightedness.
BAS should instead call on the former African Heads of States to hold the so-called symposium on the political situation of Cameroon. The armed conflict is more than them.
Dead on arrival.
