As people from West Cameroon prepare towards Ghost towns on Monday, Tuesday and Saturday this week, there has been much anger from the people as some teachers trade union called off the strike action. The Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium interim leadership has however rubbished the release as null and void and declared that the strike action continues.
Meanwhile in Bambili today during Church service at the Ntsewhi Catholic Mission, the Parish Priest, Fr. Roger who happens to be a Francophone after mass declared that parents should send their children to school tomorrow Monday 6th February. The Christians reacted violently shouting that no school tomorrow and part of the congregation went out in a protest action when he was still at the altar. We are told after the mass, the Christians remained at the church premises protesting against what the priest said in church. Some were calling for his imminent transfer.
In other related news in regard to this week Ghost towns, our people in BABESSI, Ngoketunjia Division in West Cameroon have exceptionally opened their traditional market day today Sunday instead of tomorrow Monday following the declaration of GHOST TOWN. Thousands of people from neighboring villages rush in to buy food stuffs. Our people could be heard saying in the market, “Consortium rules West Cameroon”. They say they cannot forget those in detention and those on the run. As for them, the school year is over. One old lady could be heard saying “My pikin dem, we don suffer too much, time for free from french man don reach”

Fellow Southern Cameroonians in the diaspora this is your window to bring your contribution to the table. Enough with condemning CRTV and the black-legged elites of our fatherland.
We have 24 hours to pick up our phones and undo the work of CRTV and our black-legged elites. Fight propaganda with sensitisation. We have 24 hours to keep the light burning.
Do your duty to Southern Cameroon from the comforts of your home using your beloved mobile phone and call credit. Write your names in the history books this Sunday and keep our brothers and sisters back on course.
I have spoken to about 6 relatives this evening and they are laughing off CRTV with the resolve to continue the struggle. Impressive resolve and patriotic stance from them!
The Struggle continues
