SDF Member of Parliament for Jakiri in Bui division North West region, Hon. Joseph Wirba who left the country for fear of being arrested has written a letter advising the over 70 inmates at the Kondengui maximum security prison to end their hunger strike.
Wirba stated in the letter that the Southern Cameroon detainees were dealing with a vicious and malicious regime that does not listen. The much respected MP also observed that if those striking die, the Biya Francophone government will instead celebrate their demise.
Below is the Hon. Wirba document has published by Cameroon Info.Net
To Our Prisoners Without A Crime Who Are On Hunger Strike!
My Heart bleeds my dear brothers about your ordeal! I send this message to plead with you to please end your hunger strike.
My reasons are simple. We are dealing with an inhumane government which does not think we are human enough. A government that kills children in the streets for demonstrating will care less if others die in prison! A government that tortures female university students, rapes them and rub them in sewage filth will care less if you all die in prison!
If you all died out there from hunger, they will in fact be happy that the number of those resisting their oppression has reduced!
As your brother who has undergone untold suffering, and an attempt on his life, I plead with you all on my knees to please end the hunger strike immediately, so that we all can live to fight our oppressors another day!
You have proven to the whole world what you are made of and West Cameroonians are very proud of you! Please call off your hunger strike and begin eating by drinking a lot of water and light liquid meals like pap and smooth beverages like chocolate, milk and Oval tine!
I love you very much and will continue fighting for us to take back what is ours from this colonial regime! God bless you abundantly and strengthen your resolve to keep fighting for our people
