Joint Commanders of Restoration Forces Issue Ultimatum to Ambazonian MPs in La Republique du Cameroun
BaretaNews has now confirmed a Joint declaration by commanders of Ambazonian Restoration forces in the homeland, requesting Ambazonian Members of Parliament (MPs) represented in the National Assembly of La Republique du Cameroun to resign and walk out of the foreign parliament. The declaration which was done in Kumba, economic headquarters of the Southern Zone of Ambazonia on July 14, 2018, gives the MPs an ultimatum of seven days to quit the colonial assembly and wait for when they’ll be requested to reconvene in Buea.
BaretaNews has been able to talk with 8 commanders on the ground and 5 confirmed being aware of and were part of those who came out with the declaration/ultimatum. 3 others however noted that, they weren’t part of those who signed the declaration but they however agree and abide with the content, as it seek to foster the revolution and save the lives of the Ambazonian people.
According to the commanders, the blood of innocent Ambazonian citizens cannot continue to flow on the streets of Ambazonia, while the so-called MPs, who claim to be the people’s representatives sit and watch without any major action. Worst among these MPs are those of the CPDM who have completely sold their consciences and have deliberately sealed their mouths. They are therefore called upon to hold themselves responsible for whatever befalls them after the expiration of the ultimatum.
A group of these colonial MPs such as Honorable Joseph Mbah Ndam, Hon. Fusi Namukong, Hon. Joseph Wirba among many others had last year made public statements to the effect that they were resigning or pulling out from the colonial parliament. Among these group of MPs, only the fire spitting Hon. Wirba meant what he said, as he has not been seen anywhere around the colonial parliament ever since his declaration.
The others had since returned to the Yaoundé glass house, making many failed attempts to get the conflict discussed in the lawmaking chamber. Their voices have been deliberately ignored for the past two years. While the US Congress, the Nigerian, German, British and even the EU Parliaments have all discussed the conflict and requested for an inclusive dialogue on the root causes of the conflict, the matter has remained a taboo subject in the occupier’s house of assembly.
On the September 22, 2017 and October 1, 2017, the Ambazonian people went out with peace plants requesting for their rights and pleading with these MPs to learn from history and walk out of the colonial assembly in order to shortened the revolution. Unfortunately, the people were deceived by these MPs.
At this juncture where the colonial regime has unleased its war machinery at the people, maiming and killing innocent civilians, it has become more than expedient for these MPs to leave the colonial institution or face the anger of the people, whom they claim to represent. Like the Joint Commanders declared, it is now an issue of BLOOD and IRON. No individual shall be allowed again to legitimize this act of colonialism and toil with the lives and destinies of more than 8 million Ambalanders.
Below is the full version of the declaration.
Declaration of the Joint Commanders of all Ambazonia Liberation Forces to MPs & Senators of our Land
We, Commanders of all units of liberation forces affiliated to all Ambazonian organizations in this Southern Cameroons struggle, have this July 14 2018 solemnly made this declaration and we want all those concerned to take note that until all of us are killed, we shall implement this engagement, so please take us seriously as take the public as witness that we warned you before acting.
Everyone has seen that for almost two years today, some people who call themselves our elected representatives have failed to listen to us who they claim elected them to Parliament and to the Senate. We therefore understand that truly they were never meant to represent us, that only Paul Biya, their families and their stomachs matter to them.
We also want to observe, that on the 22 of September 2017, some of them took us for their fools by claiming they were resigning and afterwards, we saw them dancing in Parliament to earn their salaries. Of course, they can all agree with us today that the Parliament of Pa Paul Biya can never discuss our problem. That is why we have come to the decision below.
All Parliamentarians and Senators that hail from Ambazonia have exactly 7 days from this July 14, 2018 to present their official resignation letters to the press and everywhere else and then wait for an official program to convene in Buea to start the Ambazonian House of Assembly under our protection. Beyond this date, anyone who would not have complied WILL be considered an armed terrorist soldier of LRC and shall be dealt with the way we have been dealing with them. No political party is exempted and this decision shall not be appealed. We simply pray that these greedy people do not tempt us, else what the terrorist BIR of Yaounde did to one family in Widikum will befall them. The time for games is over. Now is the time for BLOOD AND IRON to determine the course of our struggle.
We are reiterating that after July 21, no one should blame us for what will happen.
It is our wish that all will comply and on time. Meantime, we urge the following women: Emma Lafon, Regina Mundi, Monjoa Lifaka, Agnes Ntube, Ngala Esther and Meyali Meboka who we believe know the pains of child birth, but who have been quiet as our brothers and sisters are being slaughtered to take the lead, else no one in their lineage WILL EVER LIVE to say what would have happened to them.
We have spoken and so shall it be.
Done in Kumba on the 14 July 2018.
The Joint Commanders of Ambazonia Liberation Forces.
