UN Frowns At Human Right Abuses In Ambazonia, Calls For Meaningful Dialogue

By Mbah Godlove

The United Nations has expressed disdain over the none-respect of International Humanitarian and Human Right Laws in Ambazonia as the Southern Cameroons war of independence reaches zenith.

Speaking in New York, Friday August 14, a UN spokesperson, Stéphane Dujarric cautioned the belligerents not to attack civilians and their property as stipulated by the 1949 fourth Geneva Convention.

“On Cameroon, we have seen recent reports of serious human rights violations and abuses in that country,” he revealed.

The outing of the UN official was triggered by a recent video circulated on social media in which a 35 year-old woman was gruesomely macheted to death by yet to be identified individuals in Muyuka, Ambazonian Southern Zone.

Both French Cameroun forces and Ambazonian freedom fighters have denied responsibility of the act. It is against this backdrop that the UN is calling for a proper investigation and punishment of perpetrators of such human rights abuses in Ambazonia.

“We strongly and unequivocally condemn this atrocious act of violence. We call on the authorities to swiftly launch an investigation into these allegations and to ensure that those responsible are brought to justice,’’ Dujarric avered.  While urging the warring parties to respect the UN global ceasefire call in order to collectively fight the Coronavirus, Stéphane Dujarric stressed that the UN is willing to mediate in a political solution to the conflict through a meaningful dialogue.

Mark Bareta, Ambazonia activist reacted to UN statement ” In regards to the recent spike of violence in Southern Cameroons, the United Nations yesterday offered a press statement. There is nothing to hype in that statement. My reaction this morning in twitter.  United Nations press statement about her readiness to work with all stakeholders through meaningful dialogue to bring an end to the war in #Ambazonia is as old as 2016. @UN at each atrocity will condemn and offer this short phrase but has failed to take real actions since 2016. We want to see the @UN taking credible actions by bringing the issue in front of the security Council. It is very lame for the UN to ask an unknown authorities to investigate her own crimes. UN must stop giving these empty statements and start taking real actions. Until this is done, like in any liberation war, they wont be any change on the ground”

The Ambazonian war of independence which started in 2016 has resulted in over 20.000 deaths, razing of hundreds of villages, and has displaced nearly one million people.

Its now left to see what the Biya regime; as the main authority to the conflict would do for when suspicions are high that its military are responsible for recent atrocious killings in Ambazonia.

      That has always been the tactic of causing pain within a people so that from within they become enemies. Paid killings on rival camps is a powerful Technic of creating hatred and in-fighting and this has one purpose: break the struggle down. We should always get back to the drawing board and ask, how did we get to this point? why are we where we are? what next from here? else we get distracted, emotionally affected and we individually drop the guard or fall into the trap of revenge for paid atrocities – at this time, we are fully playing the game of the game-planner.

    A COMPROMISED U.N. NOW A TOOTHLESS BULLDOG?
    Mr. Stéphane Dujarric of the UN must understand that “strongly and unequivocally” condemning human rights abuses in Ambazonia after the recent large-scale slaughter by the Cameroun military falls far short of a badly needed IMMEDIATE COURSE OF ACTION TO BRING CAMEROUN’S BARBARISM IN AMBAZONIA TO AN END.
    After the adventurous deceitful visits of his boss, Mr. Antonio Guterres, a UN Secretary General, who shamelessly goes to Etoudi to receive bribes from Mr. Paul Biya in exchange for the autocratic dictator’s murder of Ambazonians, it is time to attend to GENOCIDE IN AMBAZONIA, as matter of URGENCY AND GREAT CONCERN to the international community.
    No one is impressed by routine CALLS TO ORDER of this nature, when the UN should be CAUTIONING CAMEROUN BY NAME TO STOP THE GENOCIDE. THE UN SHOULD STOP BLINDFOLDING THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY FROM SEEING THE FULL BREATH OF CRIMINAL CAMEROUN’S WAR CRIMES AGAINST AMBAZONIAN CIVILIANS AND TAKING APPROPRIATE ACTION THEREON.

    APART FROM MR ANTONIO GUTERRES, NO ONE ELSE IN THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY UNDERSTANDS WHAT HE MEANS BY “MEANINGFUL NEGOTIATIONS”. AFTER A FAILED GRAND MONOGUE AND AN UNACCEPTABLE FLOATED SPECIAL STATUS THAT WON’T FLY, WE HAVE LONG WALKED PAST “NEOGIATIONS”. FEDERATION? NO WAY! CONFEDERATION? NO WAY! IT IS CLEAR TO EVERY MEMBER OF THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY THAT WHAT IS REQUIRED NOW ARE THE TERMS FOR SEPARATING FORMER EAST CAMEROUN (LA REPUBLIQUE DU CAMEROUN) IN A FAKE AND ILLEGAL UNION WITH AMBAZONIA INTO TWO AUTONOMOUS AND SOVEREIGN ENTITIES. MR GUTERRES BEHAVES AS IF HE HAS NOT BEEN FOLLOWING UP EVENTS ON THE GROUND IN AMBAZONIA. AND THAT IS WHY HE DOES NOT DESERVE A SECOND TERM AS SECRETARY GENERAL TO THE UN. HE KNOWS THAT FULL WELL.

    biya’s bir and bernard okalia to neutralize all Ambazonians in refugee camps in Nigeria as the UN and AU look the other way!!!

    After NEUTRALIZING over 25,000 Ambazonians in Southern Cameroon, biya is taking the hunt to NIgeria to KILL Ambazonian refugee camps. his pro-consul okalia LEAVES for nigeria soon to map out how the killings will be carried out. Ambazonians, who by God’s Grace ran for safety to Nigeria must sit up and defend themselves because it can be soon over with them in Nigeria. biya and his bir are not satisfied with neutralizing over 25,000 Ambazonians in Southern Cameroun. biya wants more blood to flow. Ambazonians must strategies and defend themselves from biya’s private militia (the bir) who are out to kill children and women, young and old people from Ambazonia. President Sisiku and his government was not safe in Nigeria so are all Ambazonians in refugee camps in Nigeria. Nigeria will NOT protect Ambazonians from biya’s private militia – Nigeria has NOT IN THE PAST!!!

    THE UN,AU AND FRANCE have looked the other way in 4 years of biya’s killing of 25,000 Ambazonians.

    AMBAZONIANS, PLEASE BUY AMBA BONDS AND JOIN THE WAR DRAFT. OUR FATE IS IN OUR HANDS!!!!
