Dr Mbua,

I understand where you are coming from and I do not discount your arguments, but I think that you will need a convincing argument against the German map and why you would want to start your arguments from a later period.

The German map is as valid an evidence as all the ones you have quoted for the period after. Forget about what I believe in. That doesn't really matter (in fact, I never expressed any personal beliefs - just an interpretation of the evidence and the possible trouble it might cause you).

All the evidence counts, whether they support your case or not. And discounting the German map by pretending it is not relevant does not put its relevance away. What you need is convincing arguments to make people see that the German map does not contradict the aims of the SCNC.

I still believe that the SCNC is playing its part in the current unfoldings in Cameroon, whether or not it succeeds in its mission.

If you were in Cameroon you wouldn't have been making those useless statements,I'll not blame you,"janga inside salat",if your feet were in the shoes you would have known the pain.

Felixam

Dear All,
The real issue here is that Cameroonians are suffering. SCNC or not, if things continue the way they are, we are surely going to have a civil war. A few individuals and some tribes cannot hold a whole country to ransome.
The English Speaking Cameroonians are more marginalised and deprived than their French Speaking counterpart.
No one likes war and bloodshed but it is sometimes the only way out.
Whether the West comes to sell Arms or not is left to us. If we create a favourable envoronment for all of us to live and prosper, there will be no war and no arms sale.
No Westerner has asked our leaders to continue to embezzle and plunder states funds.
No amount of writing and arguments on this forum will change the perception of our Leaders. Dialogue has failed and its time to call to arms.I support entirely the efforts being put in place by the SCYL to train Combattants and you will not have the chance to be writing and quoting all these websites once a Minister or a Director is kidnapped or their many children enjoying Taxpayers Moneys in Europe and America are targeted.
We donot want to go down that route but I think it is inevitable.
Donot be taken by surprise when the SABBOTEURS come visiting.
That is one thing with us Cameroonians TALK TALK TALK. Even the Opposition parties have failed us.Fru Ndi and others who have benefitted from our collective efforts have now sent all their children Abroad while you stay behind and continue noise making.
Keep smiling in pain.

Except my memory fails me which doesnot always.
Is Janvier Tchouteu on this forum the same one I met in Amsterdam some years ago while on a visit to Holland.
If I am correct then I will have to tell you this.
I have since completed my Studies and specialised. I decided to join the Army Medical Corps in the West African Country that I trained.
Remember the Book you were writing?
The way secret(double) agents murdered political opponents in your book is the same way Our Present Political Elites will be murdered. Atleast it gives you an idea that some of the people on this forum are well talented professionals who can do it when the time is ripe.It doesnot give me pleasure in taking lives for I am fundamentally trained t to safe lives.But it is very important for me to support the Roooting Out of those who make me to be in a position to save so many impoverished lives in the first place.
Take care and hope to bump onto you before the sun sets on us all.

I am elated by Charles Forkwa's mind-set.In a nut-shell,i figure what he prescribes for the Anglophone destiny is a REFERANDUM.This is the way forward,and to all those who simply denigrate the views of others without suggesting alternative options,i'd remind you to emulate this scintillating example.
I think people underestimate the efforts of the SCNC,and this is dangerous owing to the fact that the organisation's might is soaring.Today,an overwhelming percentage of Southern Cameroonians at home and abroad,see the SCNC as their hope.Any student in international relations knows that whenever one group of people in a country seeks to conquer and annihiltate the other equal party,there's bound to be strife,and no amount of sweet-talking or threat shall destroy the unflinching ambition of a derelicted Anglophone people.I am profoundly convinced that the UN idea of a federated Cameroon was good enough at the time it was made.Nevertheless,evil men usurped the pacific nature of Anglophones,to inflict untold misery on citizens of equal status.If the leaders and policy makers of Cameroon donot heed to the wails of Anglophones,there shall be a war,a terribly acrimonious war sooner or later.Let no one ever toy with the idea that Anglophones cannot stand up to the test.If a country with an army as small as that of Eritrea could challenge the considerably huge Ethiopian arsenal,what of Southern Cameroon?By the way,war is not simply a matter of equipment and personal,it is also about the conviction of a people.
Every one in position of power in that country should understand that the more they try to demonise the SCNC,the more the organisation shall gain grounds,and the more Anglophones shall resort to extra-legal action as this will inevitably exacerbate an already wides-pread fury of battered Anglophones.

Mbutu Daniel

I have read much in silence. The only viable outcome is a SEPARATION between the two entities. That is a well-considered conclusion based on 44 years of hostile domination by Yaounde.

In the noise of Riccardo, you see another frantic Ahidjo - a shameless hypocrite, dictator and liar. The only fitting punishment for such men is to drop them off the Mentchum Falls.

The Bamilekes of La Republique are the most frightened group should Southern Cameroons become separate. They will find it hard to break the power alliance between the Boulous and Nordists. That is their problem.

JN Foncha risked his life trying to save them from the guns of the French and Ahidjo. They murdered the Hon. Abendong. It is sickening to read these old platitudes from RICCARDO. What is he doing in an English speaking country?

Danny


Riccardo

Daniel,

I have so much pity for your childdish way of thinking... You are just crying like a kid.
I also feel sorry for your sufferings, anger and frustration.
The Bamilekes are those who could really create a seperate Country from Cameroon with no pain.
As you know, they have the financial power, industry, know-how, technicians, politicians, education you name it...
I respect them... They do not fight for political positions.. They have achieve success in areas where most of Cameroonians have failed...

They do not wait for a Government to create wealth for their people... They do it
They do not believe in being lazy and expecting other people to work for them.. They do it..
They value democracy and dialogue...
They have been in the front line with the Colonialists... when you were all lying scared under your bed...
Danny, it is too much for you...
Brother travel to the Bamilekes region of Cameroon and you will understand. They love their Country....
There is no comparaison brother... Don't even touch that topic...
Eat your hamburger here with your chinese chicken fried rice and enjoy your life.

We the Progressive Cameroonians are busy transforming our Country into a peaceful democratic, modern society...

May God Bless you!

May God Bless All Cameroonians (Anglophones and Francophones).

I love you All.

Mbutu Daniel

RICCARDO,

Your platitudes are very stale. The people of Southern Cameroons have crossed the Rubicon in their quest for restoration of national sovereignty. A more resounding unionist message than yours gave birth to the "One Kamerun Movement" of the late Albert Mukong but it too failed. Ironically, La Republic jailed and tortured Mukong ! We remember your brother Forchive of the Secret Police.

Riccardo, you are wasting your time with this hangover about something that no longer exists and cannot be reconstituted. You grossly underestimate the determination of the sons and daughters of parents who were fooled by Ahmadou Ahidjo at you own peril.

Our confidence lies in the strength of our argument. The crimes of La Republique du Cameroun against the people of Southern Cameroons are well recorded. These crimes amount to a gross violation of Human Rights.

The abrogation of the Federal Constitution was TREASON by trickery. Until we assembled in Buea in 1993 and gave birth to the SCNC, the years between 1972 and 1993 witnessed an egregious manifestation of cultural imperialism, economic plunder and annexationism under the subterfuge of "national integration".

Boy, there is no turning back. Where were your Unionists when Paul Biya stole the elections in 1992, placed the winner under house arrest and declared a state of emergency in most of Southern Cameroons? Hypocrite! Where were you in all these years of undebated reforms by decrees? Those decrees are an anathema. Would you deny that Forchive was one of your brothers?

Enjoy hamburgers and cow boy hats in Houston. You don’t know what you’re talking about. If horses were Riccardo, even fools will ride!

Danny

Charles Forkwa

To Riccardo,
I admire your steadfast optimism on the future of democracy in the current Cameroon and your utmost conviction in convincing others to share your belief.
As with any project, you will need some method of measuring success. What method will you employ and how much time will you allow before you consider the experiment a success or failure? One year? Five years? Ten years? Another forty-five years? Or do you believe in an endless experiment?
I am not being fastidious. In the interest of intelligent assessment and discussion, support you suppositions on why you believe that the future will be any different given more of the same? Why don’t you think a drastic change is necessary? Just so it does not cause hardship? I submit to you that what the citizens are enduring today is worse.
Do you really believe that the current system in Cameroon advocates democracy or is “working” towards that end?
So far you have not given facts to support your arguments. Something to the effect – since democracy was re-established the opposition has been able to force the government into making XYZ changes.
Keep the discussion civil and to the point.

P. Ako

Like Ahmadou Ahidjo and Paul Biya, there shall be no facts on the table.

Riccardo and his new age band of unionists are Mark II traders of the same old bundle of masked words that mean nothig. Their music is out of tune. These partners in our failed Union practice demagoguery. The plead to the emotions and are bereft of facts and focus.

In the good old days, they burnt all foreign exchange on champagne imports. Cameroun in one of the years in the 80's imported more bubbly stuff from France than England! That was economic recklessness on a devastating scale. Even the Western media (London Economist) footnoted that landmark of disgrace.

Now, the country is impoverished and begging to qualify as one of the most heavily indebted. There is no rational from East of the Mungo beyond more of the same: contrived democracy, dictatorship and annexation under the choking trick of national integration as Danny says above.

Longlive the Southern Cameroon National Council! As a former UN Trust Territory, the people enjoy a right of inalienable self-determination. Forward ever, backward never.

Brother Charles,

What a finale to a grand discussion ! Remember that Riccardo, Andre Fokam and Henriette do not even know their history very well.

In one of their responses, the quipped that the failed Cameroon Federation is unlike Canada because the people of Quebec are mostly from Europe (France). Interesting. Ask your self, aren’t the majority English Speaking Canadians also immigrant Europeans?

Then, they said the Southern Cameroons problem was equivalent to the troubles in Southern Senegal (Casamance) and former Biafra which is like comparing apples to yams. With such basic errors and poor analysis by Riccardo, Henriette and Andre Fokam, it is no surprise that late rejoinders are seeing the demagogues for real. Those lacking mastery of the past and present have no special tools to map the future. Man does not live on platitudes.

The Southern Cameroons people on the other hand have learnt a bitter lesson from a tragic error and are rightly in the process of reinventing the future. Many of us pray for a peaceful crusade of de-annexation because La Republique has a tremendous capacity to unleash horrific violence and blame it on the SCNC.

With regards to the three musketeers, either the history syllabus in LRC deliberately does not teach facts or this trio is not worth wasting time with. They certainly fail the famous BAC of Ndam Njoya for those who can remember that happened in the late 70s when GCE A/L questions were translated into French and posed to Francophone students. It was a disaster – the so-called BAC Ndam Njoya!

Have fun and pray for a peaceful divorce. May Riccardo have a safe trip to Asia. We all deserve plus des millions, camions and etages!!!

There is a old German map in this page that is interesting.

http://www.southerncameroons.org/index.php?v=history

I think we Francophone Cameroonian should stop using German Kamerun like the reason to keep Cameroon united.

The Anglophones (I know they hate this word) may start asking us to get the same for Tchad, Centre Afrique, Gabon, Guinea Eq., Congo, Nigeria.

Brother Ricardo and Sister Henriette, I pray you to stop the bad language. Please do not insult. Try to write like Janvier. He make his point without insult.

You are giving the impression like Francophone are arrogant. This will make Anglophone even more angry. It will create the reverse effect of what you want.

It will make the country to war with each other. I am from the border area and I will not like my people killed.

I think we should work with Anglophones from the point of reunification and see how we can have it work again.

May be the SDF solution of 4 state federation is good. It is better than what we have now. I think the Anglophone like it too.

Thank you.

Monsieur NAN,

Vraiment, le SDF n'a pas une solution au problème de Southern Cameroons. Quand vous entretien d'une Fédération de 4 états, nous voyons une hégémonie de 3 états Francophones au-dessus de l'état Anglophone. C'est une perte de temps.

Ces 44 années de l'histoire nous ont donné un goût très mauvais. Cependant, notre nouvelle génération soutenue après 1961 convient sur une chose, ce doit corriger l'erreur de nos parents. Ils ont fait confiance à un étranger et nous ont vendus dans les 2èmes citoyens de classe dans notre terre héréditaire.

Depuis la fin de la Fédération Camerounaise en 1984, nous avons été occupés et annexés par la La Republique du Cameroun. Comment autrement pouvez vous expliquer cela de 60 missions étrangères, M. Paul Biya maintient seulement deux anglophones comme ambassadeurs (Rome et Malabo)?

44 années gaspillées est suffisantes. Au revoir.

Pete Ako

Nji Ahmadou Njitam (NAN)

Thank you Mr. Ako.

I do not know why you decide to write in French, but thank you, I understand better.

I fear many Francophone like Henriette and Ricardo do not understand the gravity of the situation yet.

I just say, war is not good.

Let us try to see if we can save the country and work together to ameliorate the present situation.

I like that you said "Au Revoir" not "Adieu".

Let us continue the discussion. I am learning much from this.

Thank you.

Janvier Tchouteu

Dango and co, improve on your grasp of English and from there you can read the history of the kamerunian people and understand. Moreover, where you do not understand or have doubts, ask and you would be clarified.

It doesn't take a genius to distinguish nationalists of the union character(union nationalists who cherish the original legacies and dreams of Martin Paul Samba, Um Nyobe, Felix Moumie, Nde Ntumazah, Ernest Ouangie, Albert Kingue, Albert Mukong) from the pseudo-nationalists ,French puppets and advocates of monolithism like Ahidjo, Biya,Muna, Saudou Hayatou, Achidi Achu,Musonge etc.

If you cannot figure out from the writings of Fokam, Richardo, Agbormbai etc that they belong with the first group, then you have a long way to go.

Metuge Ekane

Tchouteu,
first of all,i am not so sure you are a keen historian.Otherwise,you would know that the Kamerunian history you spend your precious time to romance with never began with the Germans.How can you clarify anyone,when you simply confuse the issue at stake?We can't talk about union nationalism where one group has not only unipolarized,but hegemonized the political life of a nation.It would have been smarter for you to stress on integration,as the premise to enhance security by eliminating key national rivalries,and creating an extreme interdependence that would cripple fundamental capacities for a bitter conflict in Cameroon.
I have said before that any endeavour to demonise the legitimate plight of Anglophones and the SCNC,shall force Southern Cameroon to use power to restrain La Republique's power.This is typical in international politics,and if this pattern becomes dominant in Cameroon,both sides shall pursue security primarily via establishment of a 'suitable' conflict.I am not interested in trying to identify dominant patterns of security management in Cameroon,but i rather concern my endeavour with the impact on the various wrong choices some of you have for the future of that country.Infact there's every reason for both sides to stay apart as two seperate entities,SINCE THE NATURE OF LEGITIMACY SOUGHT,is not the same.Thus it would save us plenty of time and trouble to avoid this imminent conflict.The stakes of Southern Cameroon are not just genuine,but are different from those of La Republic.


P. Ako

Hello NAN,

I responded to you in French for two reasons.

Firstly, it seems Francophones generally do not understand the history of the failed Cameroon Federation. By this I mean the “basic agreement” between the independent French Cameroons (La Republique du Cameroun under Ahidjo) and the UN Trust Territory Southern Cameroons under John Foncha which brought the two entities into a Federal Union. All UN-related documents are accessible online.

Secondly, Francophones are generally dismissive of the rule of law. The 1972 referendum dubbed "peaceful revolution" was illegal and contradicted Ahidjo’s submission to the UN General Assembly prior to 1961 declaring that the independent La Republique du Cameroun (LRC) had no intent to integrate the people of Southern Cameroons through its numerical superiority. In 1984, Paul Biya of LRC abandoned relics of the 1961 federation and effectively annexed Southern Cameroons. There are several publications by the Ambazonia think thank on this issue.

Between 1984 and 1993, president Paul Biya launched a devastating cultural imperialism over the Southern Cameroons under the covert strategem of “national integration”. Southern Cameroons has suffered psychologically, culturally and economically by a large measure. How else can you explain the upsurge of seemingly “rebellious” enthusiasm leading to the All Anglophone Conferences of 1993 in Buea and 1994 in Bamenda, both of which were held in outright defiance of Yaoundé and at the focus of armed troops sent in by Yaoundé? The grievances of Southern Cameroons are captured in the conference communiqués. These are landmark documents of our struggle.

AAC-II in Bamenda gave Yaoundé an olive branch for dialogue in concert with recommendations by the UNSG Kofi Annan. Instead, Paul Biya shunned dialogue and sent operatives to buy out Anglophone Leaders and destroy the will of Southern Cameroons. He still pursues that corrupt strategy today. Statements by Biya ministers and as well as copies of directives calling for state terrorism against SCNC members attest to the intentions of Yaounde.

Many of us are proficient in English and French. However, as a people deeply rooted in good traditions of the World, we don’t approve the Francophone ideal of a centralized state under the caprices of a monarchial life-presidency which permeates the entire territory through appointed governors, prefects and sous-prefects. That Francophone paternalistic system is inherently corrupt and places the future of the country on the shoulders of a fallible and unaccountable presidency. We don’t approve the servant-master relationship between Cameroun and France respectively.

Above all, we are West Africans more at home with ECOWAS than with the Francophone replica in the central African region, etc.

The Southern Cameroons are a law-abiding people and seek a peaceful and democratic resolution of this dispute. Ultimately, an internationally supervised referandum along the lines of Canada/Quebec, asking the people of Southern Cameroons to validate or invalidate the relationship is an acceptable democratic solution. Such a dispensation is beyond the capability of Paul Biya - the co-conspirator behind the destruction of the Cameroon Federation.

P. N. Ako

Ma Mary

Janvier: you still do not get it. We have no interest in the Camerounese drama. We do not care about prehistory nor 'German time'. Our starting points were 1961 as the self governing UN Trust Territory of Southern Cameroons and la Republique du Cameroun coming together to form a federation of two equal states. It is clear over reaching for la Republique to pretend to be the successor of Deutsche Reich's Kamerun. It is interesting from a historical perspective. Even I collect artifacts from that period, but it has nothing to do with the issues at hand.

Your country blew it. We were their ticket out of the enclave of French neocolonialism. Instead of using a unique opportunity in all of French-dominated Africa, they attempted to assimilate us and actually annexed us! You keep avoiding this fact of annexation, and as long as you keep avoiding and denying it, you are like a holocaust denier. Nothing else you say counts, because it is obfuscation. Even the Ivorians would have made better use of the opportunity. We are now fed up with the game and it is time to go. No amount of nostalgia and reviving of the ghosts will change anything. You are a necromancer, Janvier. Let us end this nightmare peacefully.

Riccardo

Hello Ako, Martin, Ekane, Dango

I have been absent for a while due to my long trip abroad. I just got a few minutes to respond to your comments.
Thank you Brothers and Sisters for enlightening and making this debate possible.

I have an impression you (SEPARATISTS)still donot understand that we are not here to support the current Regime.
I am not going to hate that Regime either.

Hate does not resolve the issues at stake.
We do agree with you Guys (Separatists) that the current system is corrupt and we need changes in Cameroon.
Where our points differ is the WAY to solve that problem.
* We can either find an everlasting solution for our Country that will benefit the future generation with toughtfullness and rational or
*Create more problems using our emotions and our fanatism in applying some ideas that will end up destroying that Country.

In the current conditions, without instilling the democratic values in our society, your idea of "CUT AND RUN" can end up deadly for our poor people in Cameroon.

With DEMOCRACY in Cameroon:

* We the People will respect the rules of laws
* We the People will form a more perfect Union,
* We the People will insure domestic tranquility,
* We the People will provide for the common defense and promote the welfare,
* We the People will secure the blessing of liberty to ourselves and our prosperity.
Brothers if you think about it, we the Progressive People of Cameroon are on your side if you really believe on the democratic values.
In the democracy, if the people want to seperate, the matter is put into a ballot and they decide.
Up 'til today, you have not proven that your argument is based on the will of the people.
It is very hard to prove it because you do not want the democratic values to take roots in Cameroon.
You want INSTANT GRATIFICATION !
You want political appointments !
You want so called DIVORCE, when it is well documented that before the Bristish and the French came to divide our Country, we were ALL ONE PEOPLE.
You want to divide us because you are frustrated and angry against the Current Corrupt Regime as we are too.

Your proposed solution is proven all over AFRICA (I say Africa) deadly and very immature for our societies that have Little understanding of the principles of democracy.

WE CAN AGREE TO DISAGREE BUT WE ALL LOVE OUR COUNTRY AND WANT THE GOOD IN IT.

Africa breeeds a lot of Dictators and the potential to have One in Cameroon is very likely.

This is my point people.

CAMEROONIANS WILL NEVER BE FOOLED TO FALL INTO A TRAP OF MAKING OUR COUNTRY A MARKET PLACE FOR ARM DEALERS.

Brother Andre, MC, Janvier, Agbormbai etc.. and sister Henriette with other millions of Cameroonians ( Anglophones and Francophones) you are the True Sons and Daughters of our Country.
You are the forces of reason.

THE PROGRESSIVE FORCES OF CAMEROON IS A NON VIOLENT MOVEMENT...

WE STAND WITH ALL PEACE LOVING CAMEROONIANS TO TRANSFORM CAMEROON INTO MODERN DEMOCRATIC STATE IN AFRICA.
MODERN DEMOCRATIC STATE IN AFRICA.

GOD BLESS THE REPUBLIC OF CAMEROON!
VIVE LA REPUBLIQUE DU CAMEROUN!

What is government? Government or state is an instrument for making its people happy and fulfilled as human beings, and for doing those things that they cannot efficiently do as individuals or small groups. When government forgets about its original purpose, and makes its object its own aggrandisement or grab for power or the personal interest of its operators, we have a problem.

In the spectrum of good government, we have the Scandinavian countries at one extreme. [The Kingdom of Bhutan in the Himalayas is another interesting case] and at the other extremes are theocracies [that serve a god and not human beings], hypernationalistic states [nazis]; kleptocracies [Cameroun, a government by thieves for thieves]; idealistic dystopias [north korea, Kmer Rouge].

Southern Cameroons was a reasonably well run democracy which was constrained to join one of these inhuman states which proceeded to try to suffocate the Southern Cameroons. When we joined la Republique, we used to laugh at people from there when they called france "home". We had no idea how serious a matter that was, because the french project including the way it educates people and makes them think is that they have a psychological need for central authority. In that frame of thinking, Paris is like Mecca and everything points towards it in a hierarchical fashion and there is a powerful drive to make everything and everybody to conform. Hence the drive to destroy Southern Cameroonian institutions, although they served our needs very efficiently.

We are happy that more and more Southern Cameroonians are getting it. There is no possibility of redemption in this situation. There is no middle ground against an atavistic drive to assimilate and to disempower. The need to get out from under cannot be stopped, only postponed.

SUFFOCATION
Remember this image, of suffocation, because that is how we feel with your jack booted thugs called gendarmes and police running rampant and extorting our poor folks. That is how we feel about your imposed prefets">http://souspref-aixenprovence.u-3mrs.fr/images/sprefet.jpg&imgrefurl=http://souspref-aixenprovence.u-3mrs.fr/2_sprefet.htm&h=341&w=510&sz=17&tbnid=883o9i6OkKEJ:&tbnh=85&tbnw=128&hl=en&start=10&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dprefet%26svnum%3D10%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26sa%3DN">prefets and colonial governors in their ersatz banana republic uniforms all covered in gold braid. We hate that crap and we know you guys cannot think outside of that structure, because...it is from france.

People, stop thinking like pea brains. Small does not equal banana republic. Think Singapore, Switzeland, Monaco, Leichtenstein. All of these and Nigeria could fit into Central African Republique, which does not even qualify to be a banana republique! Small does not mean banana republic; bending over to be screwed does!

Mbutu Daniel

Riccardo, your courage and sense of nationalist idealism are admirable.

The problem is that you seem to know little history, learn no lesson from history and grossly underestimate the forces at work in both the theatre of France Afrique and in the Southern Cameroons caucus.

Boy, there is no place in France Afrique for your nationalism. Your country Cameroun is a neo-colonial estate of France. She is only independent on paper. The French Ambassador in Yaounde is the de factor Vice President of La Republique du Cameroun.

You are inextricably bound to end up like Dr. Felix Moumie and others of unionist forces, in the evil hands of client French Secret Agents.

Consider immigrating to Southern Cameroons and joining the struggle for the restoration of sovereignty.

Danny

Ma Mary

Riccardo:
This phrase applies to you and other sloganeers:

You keep avoiding this fact of annexation, and as long as you keep avoiding and denying it, you are like a holocaust denier. Nothing else you say counts, because it is obfuscation.

You are a sloganeer, because you
ARE ALWAYS WRITING LIKE THIS!

Repititiously

over and over

as if to NAIL YOUR POINT OF VIEW into the consciousness of others. FYI, it is an insult to others intelligence and a reflection of your arrogance.

We are allergic to sloganeering and propagandizing, because it is instrumentation to conceal weak argument. Make your point without the Stalinist stuff. Propaganda has made serious advances since the 1950s dude. You need to study Madison Ave a little bit, you are in the United States, my friend.

I am looking for the comment in which one of you Camerounese unionists said the Bamilekes have everything: brains, money etcetera and are indispensible. So, why the heck do you need us? To distract your enemies, the betis and the hausa-fulani? To do the political heavy lifting for you? (think SDF, think Foncha). What is our interest playing that role indefinitely?

Riccard

Danny,

Eliminating any Cameroonian (Anglophone or Francophone) for his political views does not produce fun in our movement.
We will defend you if France wants to eliminate Separatists (because you are a Cameroonian and we believe in Democracy).

Ma Mary, no one wants you to bend over....
and get screwed.... Sorry!

If it happens that will be considered a Crime in any Democratic society...

We stand for a Democratic Cameroon where every citizen has equal rights and respects the Laws of the Land.

Riccardo

Ma Mary

Riccardo: Your post is full of promises of a free and democratic Cameroun. Good luck, and count us out, because we will not fall for that siren song like our parents (Albert Mukong and the OK Party) did 1/2 a century ago. You must really think we are stupid.

For those so called 11th provincers who are standing on the fence and not making a decision about an issue that is so clear cut, time is running out to be honorable. Nobody will be allowed to persecute such in Southern Cameroons, but it will take a very long time for trust to be reestablished!

Ma Mary

FYI Foncha publicly recanted and apologized about his role in taking us into this situation. I was there when he did so. In my eyes, Foncha is forgiven. Mukong spent his last days trying to correct his mistake as well. These were the strongest Southern Cameroons advocates of the cocaine that our young unionist friends are trying to push here.

I hope the Agbormbais of Southern Cameroons study the trajectories of these two Southern Cameroonians before stepping off into the abyss! I have no idea how old the professor is and whether he has had the opportunity to have his idealism tested on the field in the Cameroons. I have, and would recommend that he studies these folks above mentioned as well as Luma, Munzu, Anyangwe etcetera who have serious insights from the last 5 decades. The french way is entrenched, it is seriously imprinted like DNA at the core of that system. It is not our job to fix it! It is by far easier to just leave!

Ma Mary

I am on the roll here, but let me leave while I am ahead. Happy weekend folks, including my fellow neighbourly Africans Janvier, Riccardo and Henriette. Also my regards to newcomer Nji Ahmadou. For those who do not know, "Nji" is a big title like Fai or Shufai in Fumban. It is an honor to have you, sir.

JB Samba

Janvier Tchouteu (Mr Union Nationalist) and Co.

Is German Kamerun still in existence?
Who is a Union Nationalist?
What is nationalist of union charater?
What is annexation?
Who is an annexationist?
What is hegemony?
What is Cultural imperialism?
What is National integration?

Do the above terms which I ask you to find meanings for, apply to Cameroon vis-a-vis La Republique du Cameroun and Southern Cameroons?

You and your cohort are day dreamers, dreaming of a "Republique du Cameroun" which is unattainable under the present dispensation.

The Southern Cameroons are a law-abiding people and seek a peaceful and democratic resolution of this dispute. Ultimately, an internationally supervised referandum along the lines of Canada/Quebec, asking the people of Southern Cameroons to validate or invalidate the relationship is an acceptable democratic solution. Such a dispensation is beyond the capability of Paul Biya - the co-conspirator behind the destruction of the Cameroon Federation (P. N. Ako - Law Attorney)

Take a look and this statement by P.N. Ako which I have quoted above. Why are you guys so afraid of such a move? Because there is something you , your cohort and the likes of Riccardo are hiding from the rest of the world and the citizens of 'La Republique du Cameroun.'

THE TRUTH SHALL BE UNLEASHED. IT'S A MATTER OF TIME AND THE TRUTH WILL SET SOUTHERN CAMEROONS AND SOUTHERN CAMEROONIANS FREE.

AND THEY SHALL BE FREE INDEED

Riccardo

JB Samba,

Is Southern Cameroon still in existence?

You could find the answers to your questions by simply typing google.com. It will give you all the sources that will explain your questions.
I do not think Janvier said he was a Live dictionary (pretending he knows it all as you Guys seem to imply in your answers on this forum).

I love Brother...

Long Live Democracy...

Ma Mary,

You are a True Cameroonian. You are True daughter of Cameroon and we value your contributions to this forum.
In a Democratic Cameroon, you will have a role to play and you will impact the lives of our poor people in Cameroon.

WE LOVE YOU SISTER,
HAVE A GOOD WEEK-END!

Riccardo

Riccardo

Ma Mary,

Would you like to join me in Paris next June 2006 for an expose on Why you want Cameroon to be divided ?

Plan to stay 1 (one) week at least.

I will pay for your ticket and host you if you allow me to.

Sincerely,

Riccardo

Riccardo,

You and your colleagues, including some Douala based newspapers keep referring to "Southern Cameroon" as the UN Trust Territory of Southern Cameroons or Southern Cameroons (for brevity).

The "s" is seminal and I hope you start adhering to historical details. You cannot resolve what you do not comprehend. Southern Cameroons is not Southern Cameroon.

Danny

Riccardo

Danny,

Will that make you happy?

So where is Ambazonia from?
Is it part of Nigeria or our Cameroonian Territory?
Honest question...
Please don't get upset...

Riccardo

Janvier Tchouteu

Dear compatriots,

We are molded politically by what we experienced, learned or think we missed(which could be real or fantasy).

Mbutu Daniel

Back to you question, AMBAZONIA was coined by Fon Gorji Dinka who is one of the foremost legal luminaries West of the Mongo and is the leader of the Ambazonia movement (AM). He famously defended the captured UPC Leaders but was unable to save the men from Ahidjo's fangs of death.

AM is one of the caucus movements working to de-annex Southern Cameroons from neocolonial occupation. Other majors include:

- Southern Cameroons National Council (SCNC)
- Southern Cameroons African Peoples Organization (SCAPO)

The name AMBAZONIA refers to the zone beyond Ambas Bay which itself derives from the word “Amba” a response of the Bota Islanders to Portuguese sailors when they asked: What is the name of those flaming mountains? The mountains in question were the Chariot of the Gods or Mount Fako by the Southern Cameroons capital city Buea.

I detected that you do not know what you are talking about from your responses. Your old UNIONIST idealism break no ice amongst Southern Cameroons facts-driven intellectuals. Even co-opted apologists like the Yang Gang tried to re-write history and failed.

There is a boat-load of hard evidence to show that La Republique du Cameroun is a lawless occupier, assimilationist and annexationist. Southern Cameroons people are very determined to restore their sovereignty.

UN GAOR Resolution 1514 declares that the subjection of a people to alien subjugation, domination and exploitation constitute a denial of fundamental human rights.

There is NO STATUTE OF LIMITATION to redress injustice. The people of the British Southern Cameroons are today a re-colonized people-against all the laws intended to grant freedom for them.

Danny

Janvier Tchouteu

An except from the book "DISCIPLES OF FORTUNE:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1592869491/ref=pd_rhf_p_2/002-7082794-2602450?%5Fencoding=UTF8&v=glance&n=283155


“He is innocent. That is why he referred you to me. It is good you came. Ahidjo’s men destroyed your hospital. Ahidjo’s men are after your flesh. They fear you are still supporting us. They fear you stand to expose their atrocities and the worst, which are still to come. So be careful my brother. I will advise you to leave Kamerun with your family, and don’t return until this has been brought to an end. Do what others have already done. Leave.”

Hans shook feverishly for a moment, as he fought with his thoughts. “Ndam Saidou promised hell for me. He is a ruthless man without a conscience. He
eeks for blood like a hound.”

“I can see that you want to stay here despite Ndam Saidou,” Ouangie said, his eyes quizzical on Hans.

Hans nodded, not altogether sure of himself, but determined to follow his heart. “I shall still be here when he and his types would be gone.”

Ouangie looked away and held his hands over his head. “Unbelievable, everything is turning out this way. Um Nyobe murdered. Felix Moumie dead from poisoning, Kingue Albert on exile and I am here like a cricket in its hole. Can you believe it? Our dream party withering away and at its early stage of despondence, its true arms forced into hiding?” he said, shrugged, and then added, “You will need something to defend yourself with, if you must stay on in Kamerun.”

Hans was gratified. “Thank you for everything, my brother,” he said and embraced Ouangie.

He was disengaging himself from the embrace when Ouangie suddenly increased his grip on his shoulder and quivered into his ears. “We can’t win this war anymore. The suffering is too much on our people. They can’t sustain the heavy carnage from our enemies any more. I want peace more than anybody else does. I want the UPC given its rightful place in history. We stand for all Kamerunians, do you understand? We aren’t psychopaths like them,” Ouangie said, released Hans and pulled back. There were tears in his eyes.

Hans felt his eyes growing wistful and his lips quivering too. “Kamerunians are an understanding people. They will understand.”

Ouangie smiled sarcastically. “It is already too late now, but it wouldn’t be too late for the next generation. We should ensure that they learn the truth if they must avoid our fate. Our history of salvation began with Martin Paul Samba, was edited by our Anglophone brothers and printed with the blood of the UPC martyrs. It is only when Kamerunians have that in mind, shall our country be free. That is our only bargain with our freedom. Remember the northwest wind, my brother. It must be taken to the place of Samba’s
burial.”

“It isn’t too late. We can still do something,” Hans mumbled. Ouangie shook his head with rue. “Ahidjo has trapped Kamerunians with his lies and intimidation. Even our people here are reluctant to throw in what is left of their weight into a struggle that has been deserted by other Kamerunians. They are weary of a fight where they are paying the greatest price.”

“No…no,” Hans snapped. “I want to make a comeback. We stood for the entire Kamerunian people and I was shortsighted not to see the writings on the wall. I am sorry I failed in our obligation to the cause,” he pleaded.

“It is too late,” Ouangie said dejectedly, looking drained of his will. He shrugged momentarily and looked fixedly at Hans, “You can be of help only if you get us to the negotiating table. We can’t win anymore even though we are capable of resisting for another decade or two. But what would be the gain? Any resolve to continue the resistance would only give our enemies the excuse to carry out more carnage and suppression. Perhaps my sentiments are weaknesses for a fighter, but I can afford them because of my love for this land. Can you remember what I told you about Spartacus?”

Hans nodded. “He had a saying.”

Ouangie nodded too. “He once said that for a revolutionary to defeat his enemies, he can use their weapons, but he should never use their rules. The poor gladiator from Thrace was too soft in the heart and failed in his slave revolt because of that. The Romans kept the slaves docile by propagating that Spartacus was the cause of their miseries and the reason why there was a delay in the drive to grant equality to all. Now, what were the free Romans told? They were told that Spartacus was planning hell for them, if he triumphed in his revolt. It doesn’t take a historian or saint to see that the poor gladiator and slave leader was too good in the heart. He didn’t want to hit at the Roman citizens. All he wanted was to get at the cruel Roman oligarchy that was behind all the injustices in the empire. We too were too good when we started the struggle against the French and later against Ahidjo. That is why we are in this mess today, the same mess Spartacus found himself in two thousand years ago and damned the consequences by giving himself up in his final charge to death. We took up arms from weakness not strength. We began the fight only after we had failed to convince the French to come out with a negotiated settlement to the ban and the future of Kamerun. But it is too late now, perhaps too late.”

“We have hope, Ouangie. It is never too late. Our people will understand,” Hans quivered.

Ouangie muttered a feeble-anguished laugh. “Hope is soothing, but it can become deceptive if we cling to it as the last resort against reality,” he said.

“But we still have the people to count on,” Hans cried out desperately.

Ouangie shook his head no, looking tortuously rueful, but retaining the steel in his eyes and voice. “The only things we still have are our ideas. We have lost the people’s will, but not their hearts. That is where the ideas must be nourished until they blossom again in the next generation.”

“We must understand our people. We must understand them and not draw from their fears all the time,” Hans pleaded.

Ouangie shook his head pathetically this time and rested a hand on Hans’ shoulder. “The people are like an audience watching a drama. They have characters whose sides they have chosen even before the start of the show. They know little or nothing about the people behind the stage, the manipulators. The French, Ahidjo and their allies have the backstage and so control the show, which is this struggle against this French-imposed system. So my dear brother, they control the audience, our people too.”

Funnily enough, Hans did not retort. Instead, he stared dazedly at Ouangie, too lost in the sudden flash of memory that overwhelmed his mind. It was his late father’s words, which had been forever imprinted in his memory. Nana Njike Josef had told him that it was better for a realist to bend his will and ethics to accommodate a true friend, rather than stick to his principles that may turn the friend into an adversary.

Hans shook himself out of his reverie and regarded the piteously looking Ouangie with rueful eyes. He had almost made him an adversary if the UPC leader had not been a realistic liberator and prophetic hero who had been smart enough to judge him by his intentions. Hans heaved out heavily and pressed the hand of his leader on his shoulder.

“The good shall prevail in the end, the truth shall be the rule and the Kamerunian soul shall be free. But then, we should never lose our heads, we should always be prepared to be forgiving to repentant souls,” Hans said in an emotion-choked voice.

Riccardo

Danny,

Thanks for your response.
No one knows what he or she is saying unless she or he agrees with you anyway.

Facts driven-Intellectuals ???? Who are those Intellectuals???

Since you are fact-driven Intellectuals why do you have difficult accepting the original map of Cameroon drawn by the Germans before the English colonized you and me?
Are facts relevant only when they are convenient to your Group?
Come on brother, we all know one think.

let's keep it simple!
If your Group doesn't keep it simple, you will have problems convincing people (in the area you claim) to follow you when the Progressive Cameroonians will make Cameroon a fully democratic Nation.

People want to see concrete facts... NOT TALK...
Our parents may not self-proclaimed themselves Intellectuals but they can distinguish between Fantasies and Realities.

At the end of the Day, what are you going to do for my GranMa in Kumba?

My GrandMa only went to the Primary School but she will challenge your intellectual ideas... Many of them will....

Danny what would you say to my GrandMa who was born in Kumba raised in Kumba when she will ask you "how much does a bunch of plaintain today in Kumba?
How much does a liter of palm oil cost in Kumba?

PLEASE ANSWER MY QUESTION...
No cheating ...Please don't call Cameroon to have the answer.
I believe in your intellectual honesty.


You might not like this:

KAMERUN WAS ONE COUNTRY BEFORE FRANCE AND BRITAIN CAME TO DIVIDE US.
THAT IS FACT... INDENIABLE FACT...

Successful Leaders are not self-proclaimed Intellectuals. But they have a vision about a future of their people...

PUSHING TO DIVIDE CAMEROON INTO 2 KINGDOMS IS A VERY BAD IDEA AND DANGEROUS...

I respect Leaders that lift their people towards Democracy and prosperity.

The Progressive Cameroonians are busy helping to change our Country to meet these goals.

Our Country needs Democratic reforms to revitalize our economy and get people out of poverty.
We need to weed all the Corrupt and incompetent members of the Government(Anglophones and Francophones) that have hijacked our society.

Until this happen, we will be here focussing on theories not realities.

FYI, I personally have created jobs in Cameroon. I have a big farm where 3 families work and feed their kids.
I have invested in the private sector and I am preparing to invest in the stock market in Cameroon now... I can't wait..

There are families waiting to get their pay checks from me every month .. That is count in our Country the most... I personally confront and denounce corrupt members of the Government whenever I am in Cameroon.
I talk to them aout the benefit of being patriotic and doing the right things... They listen and many people have changed their attitudes...
I have a Non-Profit Organization that invest on poor kids in Cameroon etc...And I talk to these kids about the importance of Democracy....
I did not have to tell you all this.. Because I do it from the button of my heart.
I believe in the people of my Country.
I believe in giving back to the people...
Do you???
I am not expecting any political appointment as many here are dreaming.....

EMBRACE THE FUTURE FOR A DEMOCRATIC AND MODERN CAMEROON!


Respectfully,

Riccardo

Brother Janvier,

They are few Cameroonians out there who can write like you. You are True Artist...
Your talent is well known all over the world..
You make Cameroon proud ...
Keep up the good job Brother..

May God Bless you!

Riccardo.

Mbutu Daniel

Good piece Janvier. However, we refuse to join your unionist battle in LRC. We denounce annexation and cultural imperialism. We denounce political and highway gangsterism and all forms of dictatorship.

We believe in a parliamentary democracy and not in an alien autocratic presidential system with appointed "big-men" called governors, prefects and sous prefects. Yes, they are always men (no woman). This form of masculine bigotry and chauvinism is alien to Southern Cameroons and should be wiped from the face of the earth.

Southern Cameroons shall be free.

Danny

Riccardo

Danny,

Iam waiting for your response.

How much does a bunch of plaintain cost in Kumba or Limbe today?
How much does a liter of palm oil cost in Bamenda today?

Can any so called Southern Cameroonian self-proclaimed Intellectual tell us?

Thanks,
Riccardo

Janvier Tchouteu

Ma Mary and co,

I will take this a little bit personal to make a point.

I come from both sides of kamerun. I had relatives who died fighting the French and Ahidjo and who rejected everything they stood for just like the majority of Kamerunians and trusted 100% their English speaking brethrens from across the Mungo. As born Janvier Tchouteu, the progeny of the delineation of.........that were the pillars of the administration (not political)of English-speaking kamerun in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, I am not dumb about the past reality of the former British Southern Cameroons. I have blood ties to six of the provinces of kamerun (two English speaking) and I am proud of it. There are few households in kamerun that gave in everything to the cause or to SDF selflessly and rejected any conciliation or personal benefits like the households I come from. Therefore, I consciously make an effort to understand what the struggle is all about, even from emotionally blinded a people like you who know little or nothing about sacrifice and who lack integrity.

You are incapable of confronting the truth and expect those who have an open mind to see things in the twisted way you do.

If francophones (the majority) who oppose Biya, the Ahidjo legacy and the system and support(ed) the SDF were to give their opinion of you and your group, what would it be?

You are a traitor to the struggle, to the people and to humanity. That would be the answer.

Your last statement brought to the forefront the biggest brain washing this nation ever got(Bamilekes).I often said unless Kamerunians come to terms with the Bamilekes and Anglophone problems arising from the stereotyping and deceit that helped the system to stay in power, nothing will ever change. Bamilekes at least have come to terms with the kamerunian reality as the group people find easy to trust but have a hard time sticking with. They have no problems with Anglophones; after all, they are both Anglos and Francos. Anybody in the SDF who took the selfish path believing that the SDF was doing the work for the Bamilekes as is whispered in many cycles to the benefit of the Biya regime and the French, needs a political shrink. Moreover, from your ranting that moved from anti-Francophones to anti-Bamilekes ranting, you need a shrink as an ethnocentric misfit.

If people were to go for stereotypes, should we accept that Northwesterners( Foncha, Muna etc ) betrayed Southwesterners? If stereotyping is valid, then how comes most Southwesterners supported the SDF and the major implanters of the SDF in the Southwest were Bamilekes. Look at the mess in the SDF from 1993-2005. Most of the traitors to the cause are from the Northwest. Yet the population of that great province is the most reliable exponents of change.

Using your twisted way of thinking, would you accept the words whispered around that politically Northwesters are traitors? I do not. I do not collectivize, I blame individuals for their actions, and respect those who think that way.

If you ask me, the province I know most about and have more schemes for are the provinces I relate to the most(Northwest and Southwest). And when it comes to people who gave their lives for their country, Ma Mary and co, do not tamper with their legacy. There is nothing as haunting as the legacy of martyrs.

I worked in a pediatric clinic or hospital ( more than 50% of the children born were parents of different ethnic groups). That is the reality of kamerunian cities. That is the future. And urbanization is 60% and rising. Your line reminds me of the racists in Europe and America who are not coming to terms with globalization. And you are similar to Gaullist France and the system in kamerun that are living in the past. In the end, you will end up fighting those in your household.

I can go on and on to shed more countless home truths to you. But what is the point” “Heavens help only those who help themselves.” And what better way to help yourself than by seeking for help. You know little (socio-economic-political,cultural) about the provinces, you claim to be fight for. A struggle is scientific, taking into account statistics, mass psychology etc. It is not based on blinding emotions of hate and destruction that makes you a nihilist-Anarchist or a modern day advocate of Al-Qaeda or Bin laden who see the world in black and white. Accept my dictums or be considered an enemy that can be killed.

Riccardo,

FYI, palm oil is sold by the bottle (ex. brasseries beer containers) or the long gallon. A long gallon is British and equal to 4 liters as opposed to your Houston gallon (3.78L). In Fiango Kumba, I saw plantains now sold by the hand or count.

A bunch of plantains is a variable depending on the species, size, health and ripenness. So a bunch of plantains can go from about 300 to 1000 FCFA or more depending on many variables, including location and season.

While visiting Mbonge, Lobe, Ekombe, Kumba, Banga Bakundu and Likumba, Tiko, Mutengene and Victoria two months ago, I had the good fortune of meeting some market days. It is by God's grace that food is plentiful.

When you see picaroons like Ricardo ,janviers et al pumping piffle here denying the truth about Ambazonia's right of existence, justified by law and facts,you ought to know that, a rattle-snake has gone stark bonkers.These gentlemen and women keep refusing truth and facts.Ricardo keep recycling his rambles of democracy, progress,one and indivisible Cameroun,leaving out law and justice.Your gov't has sleepless nights now on what they will tell you for hiding truth from you.So seek to know it before......Those Union kamerun so call nationalist has prooven that,they are out to distract the struggle to enfranchise Ambazonia.They can keep banging their heads against a wall of bricks.Don't attempt standing on Ambazonia's way.Your opinion is not needed before going in to enfranchise Ambazonia and her downtrodden.

Henriette

Ndiks,

You are calling peace loving fellow cameroonians Picaroons, Slavemasters, Colonisers, Frogs and other indecent names.

I am talking as a simple citizen: Most of us Cameroonians can trace our roots on this territory back to the 16th century. We are recognized in the world as one of the most diverse country in Africa, as a matter of fact, Cameroon is one of the top countries in the world with the most languages. We have developed a Cameroonian spirit, a camer identity that is maturing everyday by every action from the modest citizen to the high ranking official. Your revendication is so weak, when you put it in the context of the evolution of our society and the world. You want to weaken our country, you want to divide our people by stirring hate amongst brothers and sisters.

You are failing because you are detached from reality, your message is backward, unrealistic, divisive, and mostly hurtful to the same people you claim to defend, as you are inviting them to marginalize themselves from society.
For all the years that you have taken to create a ficticious country, you could made positive changes to the everyday live of the locals of the region of Cameroon that interest you. You could have created a political party, you could have won elections, you could have create a cultural associations with profit genreating activities. "But it takes a lot of work" you will tell me, I know: One can only assume that the vindictive and often crude tone of a Donga Tumma is an indication of his motivation to volunteer in such a mission. Your Ambas Bay association could generate money in multiple ways, festivals around ambas bay culture, promotion of english, english classes (in high demand all around the country). If instead you want regional political power, win local elections; the Ambas Bay organization could make a sweep in Bamenda, Buea, Kumbo. You will have political oponents with diverging opinions, strategies. You may lose, you may win.

All the while, Cameroon O bosso!

Riccardo

Danny,

Thank you for your response. I know you do travelto our Country "LA REPUBLIQUE DU CAMEROUN"
Thanks to the democratic spirit, you are not sent in jail. Don't you think that is progress???
Cameroon is on to way to becoming a Modern and Democratic Nation.
People like you and your Group in any Democratic Country will on be a National Security File as Dangerous and potential Terrorists or Right Wingers.
Cameroon will never be intimidated by Dividers and Terrorists.
Progressive Cameroonians will fight with any Government in Place cheered by an Anglophone or Francophone to defend our Territorial integrity.
Make no doubt about it.
We will crush any one who is inciting or conducting violent activities in our soil.
You better believe it...
For now your Group is just watched....
We value Freedoom of speech...
We are busy building a Democratic Cameroon.
Traitors who conive with an African Country to disturb the peace of our Country will be dealt with according to the Laws of our Land.

"Create your Political Party and you will be Legal" then you will make your case in front of the People of Cameroon...
That is the only way...

I am convinced that no one pays attention to you in Cameroon because your Group is not credible...
In Cameroon the Government pays attention to SDF, UPC UDC etc... You see????

Let me say it for the last time.
ANY CHANGE IN CAMEROON WILL BE DONE BY THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE...

Vive le Cameroun!
God Bless Cameroun!

Despite all the loud UNIONIST pretences, Monsieur Riccardo finally yields under the weight of facts from pro-Southern Cameroons debaters to reveal his monstrous and conceited countenance. The inbred lawlessness is manifested coupled with misplaced arrogance in his recent postings.

With Riccardo’s mentality, we can understand the ignorance and intolerance underpinning the banning of the UPC in 1955, leading to senseless bloodshed and Atilla style razing of villages in the Bamileke heartlands by French/Ahidjo’s troops.

Here lies Riccardo, a man who demonstrably knows little history but like Ahidjo, he is armed with a silk flower and a hammer. Every object to him is a nail.

Sense pass King. Not surprisingly, no Southern Cameroons debater bought the stale claptrap and demagoguery from him, Henriette, Janvier or Fokam. The dead secret police chief Forchive was one of their brothers. THEY may play Judas and blame it on the Holy Spirit!

Southern Cameroons shall be free.

Good Job mr. Tumma for trying to write in a language you hate. was that to better transmit your sermont of hate? i laugh out loud. because you didn't need to. we cameroonians are too mature to heed to such "sauvagerie". if you are too eager for blood, go to Iraq and join alqaeda in iraq, they are probably your only kind in this modern world. if you land with these ideas in cameroon, not the police, not the gendarmes, but the people of cameroon will extinguish you, try it ! i know you cannot. you are too much a coward to leave your burgers here to go there. it is easy to be thousands of miles away and advocate a war that you cannot fight yourself. you count on nigeria to do that for you? sorry. if they could, they would have done it for bakassi. if you are looking for a kingdom in which you will satisfy your inborn basic urge, go somewhere else.
may be this will help you. there is now a video game "SIMS 2" in which you can create a virtual kingdom, run it the way that pleases you, run everything by yourself, from every household to every ministry. for someone like you who has a hard time to grasp reality, it may be very helpful. however, even the game respects basic rules of modern living. if you run your kingdom poorly, you go bankrupt,chaos come and you can even be thrwon out by the people you created.

we don't care about what you think. we care about the reality. our country Cameroon is peaceful and beautiful. we have a lot of problems and we are working to solve them for the good of all.

Andre & Co.;

Your arguments are hollow slogans. Do you believe in what you say? It is easy to rate your slogans on SMART criteria. That is

S = Specific
M = Measurable
A = Achievable
R = Realistic
T = Time bound.

You fail on all counts. When Paul Biya or a Camerounese minister opens his mouth, just SMART-test what they say! Much has already been said about demagoguery the language of scoundrels.

Danny,

Progressive Cameroonians are True Patriots. They are people who do not just TALK but they are part of the Solutions.
Your Group do not share our values:
-Democracy
-Peace
-Prosperity
For all Cameroonians (North,South,East and West)
I want to let you Guys know that as much as we value Peace for our People, we will never be intimidated by Hatemongers and Dividers.
Our National Unity is not negotiable with the threat of violence or terrorism.
Our Country is peacefully marching towards Democracy and all the sons and daughters of Cameroon want change using the democratic principles.
Your Group ideology is rejected in Cameroun as a solution for change.
That is why most of your Leaders were rejected from the Political Party they had membership, included your so called Vice Chairman Nfor Ngala Nfor.
He then understood that political problems in Cameroon will never be solved by each one us making or creating his own Kingdom whenever we disagree with the GOP.
You have been living in the USA for a while. Do you remember the "REPUBLIC OF TEXAS" Separatist Group? They were crushed, rejected and riculed by the Patriots of this Loving Country USA.
Where are they now? No where....
That is what your Group is..... You are rejected by the People of Cameroon...
Can you get it????
For now your members move freely in our Country but let it be known that the current Government has the rights to put you under surveillance.
Our National Security is at stake...
Being a Unionist and Pacifist does not mean that Hatemongers are left freely to harm people.
We have the duty to defend defenseless people like our poor fathers and mothers who cheerish peace and prosperity in Cameroun.
The Progressive Cameroonians will join forces with any GOP in Cameroon (we do not care, who is in power at that time) to defend our Territorial Integrity.
This is not just TALK brother there is a lot behind it.... Believe me...
Bring your Nigeria alone with you .... I do not even think the Nigerian People are so stupid to follow LOSERS in a lost cause...
Bakassi will be free and we will have a more peaceful relationship with our brothers and sisters of Nigeria. After all we helped them CRUSHED their Hate Group like your Group many years ago.
They know, they own us that favor...
If your Group goes to Nigeria brother... They will turn you over to us and say sorry to you....
We are peaceful, democratic but resolute in our actions...
CAMEROON PROBLEMS CAN ONLY BE SOLVED DEMOCRATICALLY...
Your Group either join us in finding solutions peacefully or stay where you are until the sun sets on you...
If you want immediate actions to experiment with war (as my brother said) Go to IRAQ...
They need people like you, bloodthirsty and DayDreamers...
A bon Entendeur, Salut!

May God Bless all the Peace Loving People,
May God Bless a Peacefuland Democratic Cameroon,
Vive la Republique du Cameroun!

janet

start by having a SMART opinion yourself. i know it is difficult to judge without bias. i like your SMART test. but applied it to yourself first and to the dreammers and losts who think they can install chaos in my beatiful country CAMEROON.

NO ONE will divide us.

You Separatists,

What are you going to do for me? You talk, talk.
You are very smart....
What have you done for your Country?
Nothing.... Just TALK, TALK...

Bye,

Janet,

You are so SMART that you make me laugh so much...
Since you have been living in the UK what have you done for Cameroon?
Improving the situation is Cameroon does not mean that you sit in London and wait for people to work for you.
Get up and be part of the solution..... not part of the problems.
Good night Smart Sister..

Metuge Ekane

Tchouteu,
i see a fault in the way you reason.You have to admit graciously that you are out of touch with this discussion.I have yearned to have you tender useful suggestions to no avail.By contrast,you are always so quick to fill up vital space with your misappropriated rantings that take the nation no where.And you claim to be working for national unity or union national(which ever way you need to call it)?You must be able to explain what Union national entails before you can carry on with your misplaced account.
See,i hate when people err,and yet are so quick to put the blame on others.You are the person that i find REALLY deficient of both objectivity and integrity.You have to remember that you are writing for the public,and you must know that words are so powerful.Sometime ago,i had to make a correction to an unwieldy historical error of yours,and i was happy that you responded promptly,acknowledging the flop.Please make contributions that are worthy of learned people.
I challenged you to prescribe a solution to the legitimate Anglophone nightmare.

Nji Ahmadou Njitam (NAN)

Hello Everybody,

One more time I pray you to stop the insult. This is for both side. It does not help us. Let us discuss amicably like brother and sister from one country.

Our point of view is different. That is fine. We do not insult to make our point.

Let us try to discuss solution and only solution to our present country problem.

The Anglophone have propose secession and war as soultion to current problem. We Francophone do not want that.

Let us propose our own solution and not write insult.

To chant "National Unity" and "Democracy" is not solution. This is just hallow slogan. We are not in exercise for brainwashing here. We are not little boys and girls. We are intelligent people. We should be talking solution here.

We do not want secession and war. The present situation is not accepted to both sides. What is the solution?

I vote for SDF 4-State Federation.

I do not like 2-State federation of 1961. It increase Francophone/Anglophone divide. It is not good.

I do not like 10-State Federation. Too many State government. Too many State Assembly. Little Micro state like East province with less than 500000 population is not good.

I do not see Francophone hegemony in 4-State Federation. Each State control their own except army, frontier and security, so no room for hegemony.

If the Angophone State like, we can have special status like Quebec in Canada. But Angophone State can not have secession power like Quebec. We need to keep national unity.

Other people can put their solution.

Thank you.

NAN...

Ndiks

Henriette says Ndiks, is calling peace loving fellow cameroonians Picaroons, Slavemasters, Colonisers, Frogs and other indecent names.Is the any fables in what i said.I think you lack understanding in what i/we say about your Colonial Camerounese gov't.If i tell you Mr Biya is a Governor General and the French Ambassador in Yd'e is effectively the President of Cameroun.A President who does not appear in Public,what will be your take Henriette?There is nix wrong with my words.There is no real insult.What 'bout your MP calling his peer a Nigerian?,anglofool,etc.Have you punish that MP?Ambazonia is under the jackboot of you and your colonial administration and gun totting and trigger-happy drunken red berret.Period!Henriette,there is nothing personal.We call a spade a spade.The presence of International gendarmes in Ambazonia means Annexation pure and simple.Your problem is that,you don't want to accept,prepensely.Get in touch with General Semengue,he will tell you the truth.
Also tell Governor General Biya to celebrate
1st January as independence day instead of handing medals to colonial troops for razing our country and assaulting our women.Have you heard that your police is topping the wold corruption chart.This is the progress Ricardo is talking about.Henriette,please find time and access this links and spend sometime and read and then tell me if it is the reality.

Ma Mary,

Would you like to join me in Paris next June 2006 for an expose on Why you want Cameroon to be divided ?

Plan to stay 1 (one) week at least.

I will pay for your ticket and host you if you allow me to.

Sincerely,

Riccardo

Riccardo:
Thankyou for the invitation. You know, this is not personal. If you want to do what your country has failed to do ie discuss our concerns 12 years after our first letter from AAC1, you are to be commended. But, you have to do it properly, because this is not a personal thing between you and me. These would be the conditions:

1) It has to be a debate with clear rules to be decided later, governed by an independent party acceptable to your people and our people. I suggest a university or a reputable NGO, such as Survie.

2) Bring your best debaters; we will bring ours.

3) Our best debaters are fluent English, yours are probably fluent in French. That will be a problem, most likely surmountable.

4) The debate will be professionally videotaped, for the education of your people and mine.

5) Please, call us Southern Cameroonians. Respect our history.

Ma Mary

Nji Ahmadou Njitam (NAN)

Ma Mary,

If you do not like "Anglophone", why do we not use "West Cameroon".

Southern Cameroon as an entity did not exist after 1961.

Let us look at the Federal entite from 1961. Our probleme is from there.

Thanks you.

Janvier Tchouteu

Metuge Ekane,

Thanks for your flawed profiling of me.
A major handicap to a cause is a misinformed populace. Remember that. So helping out minds suffering from incomprehension like you goes a long way towards aiding the struggle.

What does union nationalism entail? You can find the answers to the links below or from searching from other sources. I can help you with that if you approach with an open mind.

It appears you are hallucinating that you got my response over a historical error you perceived I made.

Also, if you were curious enough, you would have found out by now my position or ideas for the kamerun and its different peoples.

Ma Mary

Dear NAN:
Where have you been these past 21 years while we have been talking at deaf walls (Paul Biya); triumphantist juveniles (the likes of Ricardo and Henriette) and tunnel-visioned idealists (eg Janvier and Simonia)?

Nji, you have a lot more work to do amongst people of la Republique du Cameroun who believe they have conquered us or have suckled on a false story of unity, which was actually a swindle. They are not taking this seriously, insisting to continue lying and bending the story to deny and negate genuine problems. Nji, you need to talk to these people, perhaps in French in their own forum, because they are deluded and think that they could talk or bully this away.

Ma Mary

Nji Ahmadou Njitam (NAN)

Ma Mary,

I have been around. Not necessary on the computer.

I agree that we francophone need learning. I like to see Henriette, Ricardo, Janvier discuss here.

We need exchange like this with Francophone and Anglophone.

Talking to Francophone only or talking to Anglophone only is not helping.

When we debate, then francophone will learn that they will not "talk or bully this away" and anglophone will learn not to "run away from our country".

We need consensus.

The solution is not secession and civile war.

That is my point.

Thanks you.

NAN...

Metuge Ekane

Tchouteu,
We are all well-read guys,and we have to use our minds to soar into the future.I neither do not feel any need to prove myself to you by engaging in puerile polemics,nor do i intend to denigrate your efforts,or impugn on your integrity.I am simply reminding you of the fact that your idea of union- nationalism is not in touch with the Anglophone-Francophone reality in Cameroon.
I am not a die-hard union-nationalist.I do not view the concept as a credo vis-a-vis this subject matter.Much more important to me are freedom,compassion for the down-trodden,respect for social contract,and equal opportunity.I am convinced that union-nationalism has lost it's way in Cameroon.It is not equitable.It is out of touch with those who should be it's largest constituency,and instead of being a cause that promises opportunity for all,union-nationalism appears increasingly as the leitmotif of a self-serving guild of kleptomaniac Camerounese politicians.
All people in the world have specific preferences,and patterns of behaviour.However,it is not only unacceptable,but never tolerable in international politics to have a people attempt to tamper with the unchangeable identity of another people.Therefore,the deeply ingrained traits of dominance and exploitation by La Republique over Southern Cameroons cannot be condoned by any imaginative scholar.
The fundamental interest of those in power in Cameroon is regime survival and maintenance of the status quo.This is a very intriguing combination.It means La Republique's government hopes to halt at nothing until it debilitates,and completely annihilates the legitimate rallying call for self-determination,and restoration of the status quo ante of the Southern Cameroons by the SCNC.La Republique possesses imaginary and complicated security interests that makes it somewhat ambivalent or even recalcitrant about dialogue.I maintain vehemently that such disengagemnet will only contribute to instability and conflict.
Tchouteu,the difference between us is that whilst you spend your time quoting irrelevant concepts,and hopelessly struggle to fit them in the scheme of things,i look for alternative modes of explaining the situation in Cameroon,and then suggest viable means to resolve disputes without recourse to sweet-talking or military threats.When i write,i give factual information to back up my analysis,and i never introduce concepts which though may be good,but are unapplicable to the issue in question.I am the conflict-suppression school,and i underscore dialogue as the fundamental stabilizing factor in Cameroon.By contrast,you have not only failed to come forth with scintillating suggestions for the future of Anglophones in Cameroon,but worse yet,you seem quite adept at spattering others with mud to prove your point.Tchouteu,you write too smart to be such a controversial samaritan!
We all know what union-nationalism is all about.But my question to you,Tchouteu was; how can you relate it to redressing the plight of the english-speaking folks in Cameroon?Unless you can defend this romantic notion of yours by providing an indepth analysis of the ways in which the concept shall evaluate,accentuate,and hence resolve the Anglophone crises,then i see no reason why your aspirations should not be relegated as simply empty rhetoric.
I hope i have conveyed my belief that the discriminatory state of affairs in Cameroon,though monumental,is relatively easy to correct-provided that the government is willing to accept the fact that the situation and potential of Anglophones deserve to be better documented and acknowledged.Implementing a system that integrates Anglophones,as well as creating avenues for fraternal discussion with the SCNC is not the problem but solution required to creat massive surplus value in Cameroonian dilemma,if ever the country is to continue with a common destiny.Otherwise,both parties should go their seperate ways.
