La Republique’s frustration at its failures despite engagement in numerous campaigns of aggression inside and outside the country has put the regime in a state of instability. This current state of confused identity has prompted the Biya Francophone Beti Ewondo regime to again adjourn the case against the leaders of the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium including 25 other Southern Cameroons detainees. Another hearing has been slated for the 31st of August 2017.
The Francophone regime’s recent escalation of crackdown on West Cameroon-populated counties such as Kumbo, Jakiri, Mamfe, Buea, Kumba, Menji and Bamenda is rooted in its failures in the war against the Nigerian Islamic sect, Boko Haram, the civil war in the Central African Republic, poor management of the Bakassi peninsula as well as the economic crisis that has rocked the CEMAC zone countries.
The crackdown on the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium and its leadership and the continuous adjournments of the case against Dr. Barrister Agbor Nkongho Felix, Dr. Fontem Neba and radio host Bibixy Mancho is bearing witness to the fact that Paul Biya and his gang of Francophone political elites are losing the moral, ideological and political battle inside their own country- La Republique du Cameroun as they kill their own people including Bishop Jean Marie Beniot Bala of the Bafia Diocese.
We of the Cameroon Concord News Group believe and fervently too that the Biya regime is at war with itself and consequently, ghost town operations should be intensified in Southern Cameroons and schools should remain closed.
The Francophone dominated army is slowly but surely losing faith in the commander-in-chief who is likely planning to die in office. Biya is no longer respected and is not liked by his own clan because he has put one tribe against the other in the Center and South regions.
So inside the ruling gang there is a lot of infighting. Now when a regime is not stable within its own ranks and fights its own people in the Far North and in the Southern Cameroons, then it is not at ease and peace with the African Union, the UN and other countries in the CEMAC region. The leadership of the Holy Roman Catholic Church, the Moderator of the PCC and the Baptist Church should read from the same script and come into an agreement that Biya and his men no longer have a place in Southern Cameroons.
