Reports from Yaoundé, the nation’s capital have suggested a visit to Bamenda by President Biya. The very flippant but reliable source noted that the 84 year old leader is under considerable pressure from the French and British governments to open genuine dialogue with the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium. Cameroon Intelligence Report also gathered that Biya’s marginalization of the Anglophone communities has been nothing but deliberate.
There have also been under-the-table talks of him planning to reshuffle the Philemon Yang administration and also replacing the Speaker of the National Assembly, Cavaye Djibril. The date for the Biya’s visit to the Bamenda province of Southern Cameroons has not been made public. However, the operation managers of the Consortium have reportedly mapped out a strategy for a massive ghost operation to welcome the Cameroonian dictator in West Cameroon.
Consortium sources also announced recently that the resistance wall has gone 5 meters higher as the Biya regime is slowly but surely losing its grip on Southern Cameroons. A top Anglophone academic contacted by our London Bureau Chief pointed out that Biya’s traveling to Bamenda may be considered by the Consortium as an act of provocation and might culminate to attempts being made on his life.
Troops loyal to the regime in Yaoundé have killed scores of innocent Southern Cameroonians and have detained hundreds in Francophone jails. Members of the Rapid Intervention Battalion, BIR have raped dozens of university students in Buea and Bamenda with some reports stating that some of the girls have been infected with the HIV virus. In a bid to cover up the crimes committed in Southern Cameroons, Biya shut down internet services throughout the region.
