  1. Nforgue James I have always admire his works and the pathway he always takes to fine justice for most struggling African nations. I hope the best possible minds of SC will sit on one table now as one, contact great nations like the US , Canada , Germany, UK and possible the likes of Some other top diplomats Set out points on how to approach such a negotiation bc Biya will come hard on that table . This is a great news to begin the yr with
  2. Don Dinga He must have misunderstood Biya New Years Speech where he says he will continue to dialogue with chosen friends.
  3. Jimmy Tonga He misunderstood what Biya said. Unless this declaration was made behind the curtains, I don’t believe. Instead Biya has passed to a higher level of oppression and the killing machinery is taking lives at an unprecedented rate. The world is not serious
  4. Bara Bareta  I am sure he has some information we do not have because if his intel lies in Biya’s provocative 1st January speech then he missed it and got fooled. But again, in diplomacy, many things are said behind the scenes that we do not know. What if Biya just decided to come out powerfully to show strength to his Camerounese? However, Biya may be playing a fast one in the international community to reduce the pressures on him. This is someone who said he will neutralised all those who refused to drop their arms. As far as we are concerned, the Ambazonia war of independence must intensify without allowing this information to distract us..
  5. Jimmy Tonga Whatever the case, Biya will negotiate at one point.

      You guys had a chance when he rigged your so called elections and u all ran into hiding like “gong” dogs but you the francophones have the strength now to destroy Ambazonia. Biya has no choice and his gonna use his MAMI PIMA like u said to negotiate. How long have you guys been fighting this senseless war. Guess you guys knew it was only gonna take days. sorry!! not anytime soon buddy. Anglophones are not like you francophones. We will fight till the last man standing. You guys had a golden opportunity to flush that parasite of a president out but u guys have no balls( Jiang mbin) like we say in Ambazonia. leak your wounds and stay quiet.

    The truth is, the world is not serious, the so called world leaders who claim to work for peace care only about what they get and not what must be done. Indirectly they are the cause of all the instability the world is goin through all because of the wickedness in the heart of man. World leaders, work for the benefit of the oppressd and not for your stomarch.

    Not intent on impugning Herman J. Cohenh’s pedigree of diplomatic successess on the continent of Africa, I am inclined to question the sincerity and effectiveness of his proposed solution with regard to the Southern Cameroons problem. For a seasoned diplomat who is supposed to be conversant with the root cause and reason for this war, his pronouncements have at best been rift with hollowness.

    If I recall, a few months back Mr. Cohen mooted a return to federalism as a way forward. Later he appeared to sound something like a warning to Biya, urging him to hold talks within a year or was it in two years time with Anglophone leaders or else face the prospect of a breakup into two separate countries. Now the venerable diplomat is saying confidently that Biya has offered to negotiate with what he calls “separatists” and is peddling the great U S A as a mediator.

    I am perplexed if Ambassador Cohen listened to the same speech from Biya on New Year’s eve in which he promised to rain down bullets on our people to ‘neutralize’ them if Amba fighters did not heed his order to surrender. I wonder again if Mr. Cohen is keeping up with rumored developments of military reinforcement from Chad consisting of 2000 troops for the purpose of annihilating the resistance? What is so hard for the American diplomat to emphatically call for rectification of the 1961 political faux pas where the choice of independence was harmstrung by two offers: join Nigeria or LRC? Like Lord Boetang mentioned in the UK House of Lords, why was there not a third choice of ‘stand alone’ independence? Is the esteemed diplomat feigning memory loss of the record at the United Nations in which the great United States was one of 64 nations that voted for the independence of the former British Southern Cameroons? Where is the clarion call to review all these facts still in existence and applicable to the current situation? Even if there is doubt as to where Southern Cameroonians stand today with regard to staying in an illegal union or asserting their right to self determination, why NOT PUSH FOR A REFERANDUM so they can decided their own fate?
    Scotland was given a choice to do same in 2016. South Sudan won their independence in a referendum in 2011. Twice the province of Quebec has voted in a similar exercise to determine their stay with English speaking Canada, losing by a hairs inch margin. Eritrea in 1993, New Caledonia on 4 November 2018, the United Kingdom European Union membership referendum (aka BREXIT) on June 23rd 2016. The list is long. Why not us Mr. Ambassador? Why not give us the same choice if you even doubt for one second the majority opinion? Isn’t what’s good for the goose is good for the gander?

    We wonder…we are just wondering if Mr. Cohen is being true to self and commitment to finding/proposing a concrete lasting solution to the issue of Southern Cameroons INDEPENDENCE without which the current war, no matters Biya’s reinforcement, will go on until AMBAZONIA is reborn and recognized by the comity of nations. I implore you, Mr. Cohen, paraphrasing Ambassador Peter Henry Barlerin’s words to Paul Biya, THINK ABOUT YOUR LEGACY of diplomatic successes on the Continent and do not let it be tarnished. We deserve a choice to be heard. Ambazonia must be FREE.

    This colonial diplomat is playing politics with the lives of Ambazonians who are facing genocide on a daily basis,he suddenly forgot to say biya stated he will clamp down on seperatist together with mercenaries bought from Chad,Mr diplomat you know full well that biya the butcher dictator is not taking advice from any one including addressing the Root causes, Ambazonians will fight to defend themselves until thy kingdom come,biya is a liar,untrustworthy arrogant french puppet who has no will to dialogue honestly with all the patriotic Ambazonian leaders in this war he declared, Sisiku and Co,Macho and all out spoken freedom persons abducted,locked up in jails must be release including the militarisation of his terrorists french Cameroon soldiers from the SW NW regions before any dialogue in a civilised country to protect Ambazonian representative from the french Cameroon butcher gangster.

    WHILE Biya executes the war he declared on Ambazonia, the UN, AU, and Cohen utter only empty words.

    More than 6000 Ambazonians killed by French Cameroun forces
    5000 Ambazonians in French Cameroun military prisons, dungeons
    More than 600,000 Ambazonians internally displaced
    More than 1,000,000 Ambzonians refugees in Nigeria, Europe etc
    More than 3000 mimed and wounded by French Cameroun Forces
    More than 140 Ambazonian villages burned by French Cameroon Forces

    Why did biya of French Cameroun declare war on peaceful Ambazonia? Ambazonians were only asking a redress for being marginalized by the French Cameroun majority with biya as president

    Biya’s army is practicing genocide on innocent Ambazonians (there has never been any reason for Biya’s war on Ambazonia)
    Biya has and is killing thousands of Ambazoniana while the world watches on. The UN Secretary General is mute on the genocide in Ambazonia.
    Biya’s deception of talks with Ambazonia will never happen or take place in French Cameroun. US needs to call the waring parties to talk now!
    While biya kills off Ambazonians, france is happy to see all Ambazonian oil exported to france to assuage French rioters over high gas prices

    Since the UN, AU, Britain have neglected the plight of Ambazonians,

    Ambazonians must resist biya genocide campaign to the end
    Ambazonians must continue supporting the IG with funds and other resources
    Ambazonians must continue giving hope to the people on ground zero.
    Ambazonia has never and will never be part of French Cameroun
    even if all Ambazonians are all killed by biya’s evil regime
    Ambazonia SHALL NEVER SURRENDER to the French Cameroun regime. The sooner the talks the better!

    United State of America, Britain and france MUST summon biya’s French Cameroun criminal government and Ambazonia to negotiate on neutral ground. THE LEADERSHIP OF THESE TWO COUNTRIES must SIT ON THE NEGOTIATING TABLE in the presence of US, Britain and France TO STOP biya’s bloody campaign on innocent and the defenseless people of Ambazonia.
