Sweeping History Under the Carpet

We are Southern Cameroonians, NOT Anglophones. Any slacker who can speak English is an anglophone. Southern Cameroons is a territory, a country with people and distinct cultures. Please, do not call us anglophones. It is ahistorical, and gives away power and a people's power should not be given away senselessly. That is the lesson from the 1960s. Foncha and the Muna ceded power too easily. Jua and Endeley were better in that respect. The first thing is to reclaim language and not let the enemy use words to define us that take away our mojo. If you keep calling a child a fool, she will become one. If you keep calling us anglofous, we may come to believe it, if we do not fight back. On the other hand, call her a giant and she becomes one.

Remaining on the subject of mojo, a nation is much like a religion. Visit Egypt, and you will come across the ruined temples of Gods and religions that reigned for thousands of years, a least 3000 years more than Christianity has been in existence. They are in ruins because people no longer believe in them. Ruined temples and symbols are a sign of doom, because like a religion, a country is sustained by faith. If people no longer believe in it, it dies. The symbols, the mojo of the union between Southern Cameroons and la Republique are dead. SEE HERE. Healthy nations do not let their symbols rot.

La Republique has leprosy and AIDS and is promiscuous.

Let us use our energy to run.

In some way Dr Endeley is being proven right by history.The union between two cameroon is complete failure.

Dr. E.M.L Endeley was prophetic and had remarkable tunnel vision.

Ma Mary

The info was all there, but people ignored it for various reasons. Trained as doctor, the man (Endeley) applied those skills. He looked at the data, made a diagnosis and established the prognosis if Southern Cameroons joined la Republique. There was no way of predicting the Nigerian Civil War then, unless you really had 4 eyes. But, Southern Cameroons could have been the one stabilizing factor to prevent that from happening. No one knows. According to some papers, the third option was possible, but Foncha was so intent to joining up with "his brothers" in French Cameroun. What "brothers" they have turned out to be, just like Endeley said.

Riccardo

I keep wondering who are Southern Cameroonians if they deny to be Anglophones now. What a change?
Before, it was kill all the Francophones and long live Anglophones... Now?
Are the Dividers rethinking their strategies of exclusion? Let's hope so...

Ma Mary

Riccardo, as incorrigible ass-hat-wearer, the following explanation is not for you, but for the benefit of others others who might actually be confused.

In the Southern Cameroons, citizenship was not a function of being an anglophone, but of being born in the country, Southern Cameroons. Many of our citizens did not speak English or any other European language, but were fluent in pidgin, Mungaka, Bafaw or some other native Southern Cameroonian language. It was not the English speakers of Southern Cameroons alone who approved that Southern Cameroons join with la Republique in a federation of equal states. It was all Southern Cameroonians.

If you are still unable to make that distinction, Riccardo, you are either dumb as a bucket of nails or an extraordinary dissembler. Where is NAN? He warned you that this kind of obliviousness to history only helps and accelerates our work. A cursory examination of the dialogue streams indicates that too many of your Camerounese compatriots are still caught up in the fog of Ahidjo's propaganda. That, more than anything is bringing the most fearful Southern Cameroonians to our side, because they know that you people will not acknowledge the truth and do anything to remedy the issues at hand.

Thanks, Riccardoodle.

Dr Endeley's 1961 warning about the dangers of Cameroun are still true, 49 years later.

We cannot celebrate their 50th anniversary of fake independence.

DR. CHRISTOPHER ATANG

IT IS NOT LATE FOR FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE FORMER BRITISH TRUST TERRITORY OF THE SOUTHERN CAMEROONS TO ASSERT THEIR INDEPENDENCE THAT WAS HIJACKED BY LA REPUBLIQUE DU CAMEROUN IN 1961. IT IS CONSOLING TO NOTE THAT THE AFRICAN UNION (HUMAN RIGHTS COMMITTEE)IS PRESENTLY INVESTIGATING THE WHOLE SITUATION TO EMANCIPATE THE SOUTHERN CAMEROONS FROM THE PRESENT SLAVERY BEING EXPERIENCED, BY COMING UP WITH CONCRETE RECOMMENDATIONS TO RESOLVE THE ISSUE ONCE AND FOR ALL.
IT MUST BE CLEARLY STATED THAT SEVEN (7) MILLION SOUTHERN CAMEROONIANS ARE CAPABLE OF RUNNING THE AFFAIRS OF THEIR COUNTRY, AND INDEPENDDENCE IS THE ONLY OPTION.
