Southern Cameroons War: Donations pour in after Sako’s dismissal
A total of 27 000 dollars has already been donated by Southern Cameroonians and several prominent elites in the Diaspora towards relief efforts in Ground Zero. The donations were made to the Ambazonia Interim Government after President Sisiku Ayuk Tabe dissolved the caretaker cabinet that was headed by the disgraced Dr Samuel Ikome Sako.
A well placed source deep within the treasury department who sued for anonymity told Cameroon Concord News Group that, money has started coming in from Ambazonians and President Ayuk Tabe is expected to set a deadline for the funds to be disbursed to needy Ambazonians back in the territory.
The Southern Cameroons leader held an emergency meeting with top aides of the Interim Government from his prison cell on Wednesday dedicated to the Sako Financial Scandal Response. Our source in the US told Cameroon Concord News that that 27 000 dollars has been raised so far and the figure is expected to rise within the coming days.
Contributors include accomplished Southern Cameroonians in Europe, the US and stake holders. Pro Sako Ikome comedians attempted to sabotage the President Sisiku Ayuk Tabe decree saying it was a Milan Atam diabolic harsh ploy to stifle the Ambazonian revolution and quest for independence.
However, we understand President Ayuk Tabe took the decision following evidence of huge financial misappropriation and fraud in the Samuel Ikom Sako regime. Speaking exclusively to Cameroon Concord News, President Ayuk Tabe revealed that he and his team now have details of all Southern Cameroons detainees in French Cameroun jails.
The leader further pointed out that the humanitarian situation in Ground Zero is horrible and that he recently with the help of the Roman Catholic Church got 7 lawyers to defend a group of Southern Cameroons detainees in the Douala High Court. Sisiku Ayuk Tabe hinted that the Southern Cameroons Interim Government will continue to gather donations and the IG is already setting up a special office to deal with medical supplies to Ambazonians living in the forest.
Some criticism has already surfaced among those in the USA who say President Ayuk Tabe should not be allowed to govern from his detention cell at the Kondengui prison.
