Southern Cameroons Independence Struggle: France Enters the Fray Directly

It is now about two years since the people of Southern Cameroons rose up to claim their stolen independence from a botched decolonization process. In 1961, rather than simply grant independence to the UN Trust Territory of Southern Cameroons entrusted to her her care, the British rather auctioned the people to France and washed off her hands. Ever since then, Southern Cameroonians have been cheated, maltreated, dehumanized and reduced to second class citizens, with no one coming to their rescue, not even the United Kingdom.

Towards the end of the year 2016, the embittered peoples through their lawyers and teachers felt enough was enough and started peaceful protests and sit-down strikes to demand a reversal of obnoxious policies and a return to the two-state federal system which conditioned the coming together of the two peoples. Rather than examine the demands peacefully in a way as to provide reasonable solutions, the Biya – led government opted for the use of force; they killed scores of young people, arrested hundreds others arbitrarily and detained them and eventually declared war on an armless people.

Faced with muscled resistance from a resilient population determined to protect their land and lives, the Cameroon government is now being directly assisted by France, with French soldiers reportedly fighting physically alongside soldiers of La République du Cameroun.

The involvement of French soldiers was first reported by a woman who told reporters that she was shot at by a Whiteman among soldiers of La République du Cameroun.

On the heels of that revelation, the French President dispatched his Secretary of state at the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne to Cameroon ftom the 28th to the 29th of June 2018 to talk about the crisis. At the same time, President Macron called Mr. Biya by telephone to dish out directives on how to annihilate the people of Southern Cameroons.

As if that were not enough, French President, Macron is reportedly in Nigeria at the time of writing this report to urge the Nigerian government to grant support to Yaounde at several levels, including military, logistics as well as building a military zone around the borders with Southern Cameroons to isolate, intimidate and possibly kill the male refugees hiding in the country in efforts to help Biya win the war.

While all this is happening, the African Union, the United Nations and other world bodies that should normally intervene to halt the hostilities have remained suspiciously silent.

Should Abuja cooperate, which will not be surprising viewing the treatment given to Southern Cameroons’ leaders who sought refugee protection there, then it will be a clear indication that the country is ready to support and promote a genocide in a neighboring state.

As the events unfold, the world is watching.

    only patriotic SCs in this revolution will liberate their country,Macron has fake a pretend visit to a shine in Nigeria which is in fact to bribe and threaten Buhari to join forces with french Cameroon and kill SCs in Nigeria,Cameroon and the idea of Independence,France and many within the EU does not like blacks/ people of colour unfortunately many African leaders are frightful of the white man because they have been living as beggars,taking free hand out such as foreign aid, development aid,foreign projects etc,no develop country gives out free money,it is indirect colonisation,control.blackmail,African leaders and their regimes squandered these many free yearly money into private higher government officials pockets not to their impoverish people, as there is no accountability and most of their poor citizens know nothing about development aid,99.9 % of Africa leaders are unpatriotic, undemocratic crooks,money is greater than making their continent and people proud,
    the AU is toothless, corrupt just like in Africa states because it also get free money from developed nation, SCs will have to work hard to expose Macron France to the world media in order to be exposed about the SCs military interference in order to gain support from international sympathiser because there are many good people around the world who detest France unjust involvement in African

      The problem isn’t just Nigeria. Nigeria had its problems with Cameroon over the Bakassi Peninsula but Anglophone Cameroonians never gave any support to Nigeria all those years. Theyve kept mute until now. You also had the opportunity to remain as part of another Anglophone country Nigeria but you thought Francophone Cameroon would serve your interests better but since when has any country controlled by France protected the interest of Anglophone or Lusophone minorities. The whole point is to turn you into French speaking slaves of France. Anyway all that aside – this is really the offshoot of a European geopolitical mess which created Cameroon for the Germans and then as a result of their war in Europe split Cameroon between Britain and France. It beggars the question – should Africans really be killing themselves due to their colonial inheritance? I do not support what the largely French speaking government is doing to the Anglophone part of Cameroon but it is a very sad situation that Africans are oppressing and fighting each other based on their colonial inheritance. We are neither French nor English both languages are merely working languages and should be treated as such however France is bent on promoting it’s hegemony over its former African colonies and as such they will support French speaking Cameroon in this matter. Unfortunately you can’t call on Britain because unlike France Britain is very weak in Africa and her ex colonies maintain a more independent stance from Britain compared to La Francophone African countries.

        You wrote quote, “…You also had the opportunity to remain as part of another Anglophone country Nigeria……”. That’s an insult to 8 million Ambazonians who were denied a choice of stand alone independence by the duo of Britain and the UN in 1961. In your myopic and ignorance view, we Ambazonians are ONLY good as subordinates to one country or another. How erroneous.

        I urge you to research a little more and you’ll see that the land, the population and the economy of what constitutes Southern Cameroons/Ambazonia today is far larger than those of tens of independent countries worldwide. There is therefore no reason or justification for the Federal Republic of Ambazonia (in the making) to be compelled into remaining a vassal of French speaking Etoudi and by proxy, France.

    They have tried everything and it’s not working, this is their last move and it correspond with Wirba’s revelation. Every revelation has come to past, so will this too.

    France and LRC can’t figure out how we manage to do what we do. All their technology can’t help them.

    People who go around and terrorize, intimidate, oppress others into liking them, ends up living an illusion of having many friends. France and LRC have not yet realize that.

    Spiritually, in order to totally reverse what they did to us and free us for their bondage once and for all, the blood of the main actor that signed our enslavement, dehumanization, oppression, … must touch our soil. They must bring themselves back on the soil of Ambazonia and try to do what they did in the beginning, and finally that just happen.

    France is the last piece of the puzzle that we have been waiting for. Now, slowly the real thing is about to start.

    Spirituality is infinitely potent that any technology that man will ever developed for all technologies are just limited, time and space bounded abstract attempts of mimicking spirituality. What is coming, will not be visible, but it is something this world has never ever seen. We are entering the final phase of this struggle, we Ambazonians must prepare and be ready for we are in the process of crossing the real RED SEA (HUMAN BLOOD).

    A lot of life will be lost, but we will live forever in peace, there is no other way our.

    Donald Trump can help us if we play our cards right. He hates Macron, he can build Trump hotels and develop tourism Macron will continue looting and underdevelopment. Let him bring white men to kill Africans, this is instant communications, let”s let black countries in the world know slavery is coming. Engage Brazil, Trinidad, Cuba all African Americans, contribute, no more den guns, let France kill everybody and 3 million in the diaspora.

    The truth is that there is time for everything. A time to live and a time to die. A time to work and a time to eat. A time to cry and a time to laugh. There has been a time for France to fool us and exploit African countries, and now is the time for France to have no access to Africa, and other countries in the world. I believe that France was the first country to start racism. France don’t want to see African countries progressing. The game called Pmuc, that’s tierce, was brought by France to frustrate Cameroonians. When results are 4-15-11-2-8, and many people win, France will change the results to 6-11-15-9-10, so that nobody will win. Let France not think that they can change the plan that GOD has for us. Our destiny is not Pmuc. Our destiny is in the hands of GOD, the spirit that no one can overcome. France should go back to Europe and be prepared to face judgement from GOD, because they will be punished like Sodom and Gomorrah. France must pay for the people that have been killed by hiding his face from the world. France is like a thief that when caught, he doesn’t want people to know. France will soon not be able to to cross the sea and enter Africa. GOD will punish them with many plaques for their evil plans. Short live France, long live Africa, long live our country.
