The indigenous people of Southern Cameroons should categorically conclude that a Southern Cameroons state can be achieved by civil disobedience and confrontational action contrary to statements made by National Assembly speaker, Cavaye Yeguie Djibril and the so-called President of the Senate, Marcel Njiat. The two Francophone personalities used their closing remarks in the Upper and Lower Houses of La Republique du Cameroun to make a mockery of the Anglophone problem.
National Assembly speaker noted that the SDF parliamentarians were not supposed to stage any public protest on the streets of Bamenda and Buea. Cavaye Djibril added that the said action was completely against the norms of being a honorable member of parliament. For his part, the Senate President painted the SDF Senators as not being patriotic. These two Francophone comedians did not condemn the killings and rapes that took place recently in Anglophone Cameroon orchestrated by security forces from La Republique du Cameroun.
Bearing in mind that Barack Obama is the president of the USA today is directly attributable to the civil disobedience of the days of Malcom-X and Martin Luther King Jr. Mindful of the fact that for 27 years, the blacks in South Africa never stopped carrying out civil disobedience until Nelson Mandela was released from prison. Considering the view that the Arab Spring started with civil disobedience and the outcome is there for all to see.
It is therefore preposterous and smirks of political illiteracy for some compromised people to make mockery of the well-organized and peaceful civil disobedience by our lawyers and teachers that has as objective the pressurizing of the Biya Francophone Beti Ewondo government to return to the 1961 federation or a Southern Cameroons state. Any saboteurs or political neophytes attempting to invoke the Francophone tactics of North West/South West divide should be ruthlessly crushed and severely dealt with.
The restoration of our Anglophone dignity is greater than any personal deals being cut with the regime in Yaoundé. The CPDM led government is currently under immense pressure to have a negotiation meeting with the objective of finding a way out of the impasse occasioned by widespread demonstrations by the indigenous citizens of British Southern Cameroons. No Anglophone, let alone those in the Diaspora should distinguish his/herself as a great saboteur.
By joining the Francophone leadership in making a mockery of those killed in Kumba, Bamenda, Buea and Kumbo by La Republique’s killer squads, you are by extrapolation insulting the memory of the dead Anglophones including the late S.A. George and the late Dr. Emmanuel Lifafe Endeley who died fighting for Southern Cameroons dignity. By mocking the dead bodies of innocent Southern Cameroonians from your luxurious villas in London, the people of Southern Cameroons including all lovers of freedom will never forgive you.
South West and North West politicians who prostitute themselves to Francophone men in return for political favours, should know that they present danger to the Southern Cameroons restoration process. Do not allow your family name to join the hall of infamy of Southern Cameroons saboteurs. Francophones dwell in a winner-takes-it-all political environment. Francophones know that if you don’t have the presidency; you are not going to make any impact. This makes Federalism not a palatable option.
From 1960 till date, Anglophone politicians from both the South West and the North West have consistently betrayed other Southern Cameroons men and women of honor and vision. Southern Cameroonians are therefore, placing all South West and North politicians on notice that we will no longer tolerate the sell-out of our people on the platter of the disgusting lucre from the decrepit La Republique politics. Enough is enough to these Anglophone saboteurs who see Southern Cameroons as a means of personal aggrandizements and cutting of deals with the Ahidjo-Biya oligarchy. The monetization of Anglophones in Cameroon politics must come to an end.
