Southern Cameroons shall rise from the ashes of La Republique du Cameroun.

Bakassians and especially the Federal Government of Nigeria must think twice before handing over Bakassi to La Republique.

Nigeria must hold on to Bakassi until Bakassian brethren in the towns and villages of West Cameroon, from Victoria, Ndian, Wum to Nkambe are free. La Republique du Cameroun bears all the hallmarks of a terrorist police state where the law of the jungle prevails.

This is intolerable.

You can take the horse to the river ...
But you can force it to drink.

Near the Wouri river
Where there is a lot of worry
We the true people of the land
of the Chariot of the Gods
will not be forced to drink salt water
We the true people of the land of many names
will not be forced to be called "shrimps"
or "los camarones"
We are who we are
We cannot be who someone else wants us to be

Forty more years of trying to change us into
"frogs" and/or "shrimps" will not work
This is not a matter of prophecy
But of 'Common Sense"
Which has no translation in the language of
oppressors.

Our people have their backs to the wall now
That wall is the Fako mountain -
The Chariot of the Gods.
Our people have the protection of same.
You can try to snuff them out
But they'll survive
And they'll keep coming
At you.

Ignorance of natural law
is no excuse
For the consequences
Will be yours to bear.
Time will tell.

Peace to all our people
And to those who wish them peace.

Wanaku

The totuous treatments inflicted upon the Southern Cameroonians brings poeple just to the realisation that there is something the Government is doing and afraid will come to surface. If the goV't is simply getting along with issues of the state, then it is equally worth having issues pertaining to a group of people as their sole rights. There come a time when those things shall really surface. How long shall the southern Cameroonian suffer such humiliation from the hands of La Republic or some officials who want to be known as patriots for trampling upon a poeple who are fighting against being despiced and underlooked in a country they call their own. I think if the Gov't wants to show how strong it is, it should simply listen to the problems wagged by these people of the southern Cameroons. Take a time to look into the matters that cause chaos and you will be able to find better solutions. Tormenting and torturing them will bring you to no solution or some day there will will be no Cameroon, Southern or La Republic.
Greetings from Germany.

That is a good start for the fight. What interest me at this moment is where the money the pollice took away go to? Was the 25 million CFA and the rest refunded or confisticated by the police?

Cameroon.

Still braving the odds
In a bid to muzzle free expression, the Buea Administration, led the Mobile Intervention Unit of the Police Force to storm the home of Henry Fossung, an SCNC activist on January 15, 2005.
The home of the Ambassador was ransacked while he and some 50 other people who were in the house were manhandled before being frogmarched into detention.
The Divisional Officer, D.O, of Buea gave as reason for the invasion: That Fossung was holding an illegal meeting. Fossung had just returned from a trip to Britain, where he reportedly sued Her Majesty’s Government for submitting the Southern Cameroons to another form of colonisation. Fossung also came back with publications on the Southern Cameroons struggle. He alleged that the authorities confiscated copies of the publication, including FCFA 25 million, US $ 5000 and 1500 British pounds.
What happened to Fossung is not new. It has become customary for the police to harass, torture and detain people because of their beliefs. On November 22, 2004, the police under the auspices of the D.O Tiko, picked up SCNC activists on the streets of Mutengene, including SCNC organising Secretary Pa James Sabum and his son, Valentine Sabum. This was in a bid to forestall celebrations on October 1 by the activists. The detainees were only released on October 3, without any charges pressed against them.
In October 2002, after arresting, molesting and detaining SCNC leaders in Bamenda for organising demonstrations in celebration of October 1, considered Southern Cameroons Independence Day, the mobile intervention unit went on a frenzy in the Southwest Province and elsewhere. They arrested sympathisers of the cause, including a Nigerian-trained freelance journalist, Joseph Mofoke for anti-government publications. Joe Mofoke did his internship in Cameroon Radio and Television, CRTV, Yaounde. For sometime, his colleagues and family members wondered about his whereabouts. But recently it was gathered that the promising, vibrant and ebullient journalist, had landed in Europe, precisely France, around June 2003 where he is now seeking asylum.
Many observers hold that journalists like Nzana Seme, who broke the news of Paul Biya’s supposed death, will be committing suicide should they set foot in Cameroon. The regime will be delighted to kill the mocking birds.
A recent case is that of Jean Lambert Nang who criticised the way the government was handling Cameroon’s number Export: Football. While the regime has cashed in so much on football, which has sold the country’s image most, it has done nothing in terms of infrastructure, the players who sweat it out in the pitches all around the world, are hardly paid their dues, Jean Lambert observed. The former General Manager of CRTV, Prof. Gervais Mendo Ze, who is now Minister Delegate at the Ministry of Communication, sacked him from his duty post.
Journalists and writers are town criers. They love their country and people. They should never be thrown in jail for expressing their opinion.
What happened to Fossung and many others is indicative of the fact that the road to free expression in Cameroon is still rough and perilous.

Emmanuel

I am very happy to stay informed with the NEWsS of our "beloved" country, Cameroon via The Post's website.

Indeed, one begins to wonder whether Cameroon is the one we used to feel and enjoy. The story of the Mountain Race is just a sad case.

There is nothing in Buea that shows that a "race of Hope" is organised. Its sad not experience the joy and fever that used to manifest. It is really a hope of DESPAIR. We can't have an out-standing athlete to represent us. We all know the answer. Money can't be made available to train promising athletes. Even if money is given, it will "ENTER" somewhere

I was chatting with friends(Britons)about going to Cameroon to witness and have a feel of the Race of Hope. I was shocked to hear from them that "it's full of sh**". That my country (Cameroon) is as corrupt as the word,Corrupt.

Well, I thank you for giving me the opportunity to make my comments. I really appreciate the "sense and style" of the 5 franc question of Atatah Clovis.

Bye

Nde

The Cameroon government is maltreating Southern Cameroonians.
