The Interim Government And The Munzu-Tumi Conference
The Interim Government, Federal Republic Of Ambazonia now officially says the only option left to satisfy all parties is a UN sponsored Referendum so that the people of the former British Southern Cameroons can make their final say. The Interim Government went on to say this is the only option that will rest the guns.
The Interim Government (IG) Secretary Of Communications, Chris Anu was reacting on Wednesday, October 24th, 2018 to the Tumi-Munzi AGC Conference coming up in November, 2018 in Buea. According to the IG, the conference is a non starter and will not resolve the aspirations of the people unless a UN sponsored referendum is called.
The IG gave fierce reasons why the AGC must not hold amongst which is the calculated attempt by its proponents to force the people of the former British Southern Cameroons to continue the political concubinage with Cameroun, a position which has been solely rejected by the vast majority of Southern Cameroonians.
However, BaretaNews is of the opinion that any Southern Cameroonian home or abroad is free to organise themselves, sit, talk and take stock of the current war and its implications into the future of Southern Cameroons. However, such a gathering must not confer itself as an authority to talk or negotiate on behalf of the people unless such a body is a representative of the people fully created, endorsed and accepted by the people. BaretaNews agrees with the IG that the end point shall only be a Referendum so that the sovereign people of Southern Cameroons decides as they did in 11th February, 1961.
Consequently, we at BaretaNews are of the strong opinion that the AGC proponents should be talked to, listened to and make them understand why the mistake of AAC 1, 2 must not be done. This epoch presents a different era with armed struggle in place and scars of the war are still fresh and ongoing and cannot be tolerated anymore especially the thoughts of continuing political union with Cameroun. It presents an opportunity for our people home to express themselves again, expose the calamities of the regime to the outside world as they have always done when given the opportunity to talk on the present conflict. It presents a singular opportunity where such an AGC should end up with a singular resolution as a call for referendum that satisfy the aspirations of both nationalists and federalists and even those who still believe in a supposed one Cameroun.
In the same light, just as proponents of AGC called and spoke, and participated during the just ended Washington DC conference, Nationalists should give them an opportunity let them cry out their voices understanding that nothing really changes and at same time making sure whatever goes on in November, 2018 during the AGC does not skip the aspirations of the people or moves that put Nationalists and federalists in any antagonism as the regime rightly wants. But it presents a bold opportunity whereby back door diplomacy, talks will end up with the intended call for referendum. A position which will galvanise all fragments of Southern Cameroons and put us at talking points of the international community thereby showing the world that the PEOPLE have now asked for one thing: Referendum
Short Live The Revolution
Long Live Ambazonia
