The trial of the Chairman and other leaders of the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium which will resume today in a military tribunal in Yaoundé remains a conspiracy by the Francophone apartheid police apparatus to stifle the Southern Cameroons revolution and to continue with the marginalization of the Anglophones in Cameroon. The Biya Francophone Beti Ewondo regime has assembled a sea of witnesses backed by Francophone security agents who know how to set Anglophones up and pressurized them into giving false statements and forced to lie under oath by police with hidden political agendas.
Some four months ago, the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium picked Barrister Agbor Nkongho to champion the case for federalism and the plight of the Anglophone communities in a country run by a consortium of criminal gangs. Barrister Agbor Balla also uncovered a plot to kill the Common Law and the Anglo Saxon educational system by a CPDM group of Francophone political elites based in Yaoundé. The Francophone regime has cracked down on Anglophone activists and the Chairman of the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium including his top aides are now on trial in a Francophone military court for what the Yaoundé regime described as malicious acts of terrorism.
The Francophone regime has gone to extreme lengths and humiliated Southern Cameroonians. An Anglophone Supreme Court Judge, Lord Justice Paul Ayah Abine was arrested and detained like a common criminal. Hundreds of Southern Cameroonian youths have been abducted and are currently suffering in detention centers in French Cameroun. Universities female students have been raped and some infected with HIV. An Anglophone opposition MP, Hon. Joseph Wirba has been forced to flee for his life. Dozens of West Cameroonians have been killed in Buea, Kumba, Bamenda, Jakiri and Kumbo.
The leaders of the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium have nothing to hide‚ so if there were allegations by all means, a commission would have investigated the Anglophone crisis not a military tribunal. The Francophone judges handling the current Anglophone cases are similar to those who sent former Anglophone Prime Minister Chief Ephraim Inoni to jail for privately informing a French ambassador that he was capable of running the country. These Francophone judges cannot be trusted. Pressure is now being put on Barrister Akere Muna by the regime for his support for the rule of law in a so-called bilingual Cameroon.
As was the case with Chief Inoni and Forjindam, witnesses will be made to lie under oath. That is where the malice comes in and supports the case for an independent Southern Cameroons state. We of this publication understands that affidavits used in the Barrister Agbor Nkongho and Dr Fontem prosecution were “helped”‚ and that the decision to prosecute the Anglophone leaders did not come from the national directorate of public prosecutions‚ but that Francophone political elites played a serious role in the decision. Biya needs a fight!! He will get one!!
