THE FATE OF THE SOUTHERN CAMEROONS AFTER BANJUL VERDICT – WE ARE DETERMINED BECAUSE THIS LAND IS OUR LAND

In less than 9 weeks, the year 2009 will come to an end. We will welcome 2010, ten years after the new millennium, ten years of extra-ordinary progress in the field of science and a more constricted world in which we are struggling to keep pace with the rapidity of events. 2010 will also be almost 60 years since most countries in Africa evolved from a pure colonial form of rule into neo-colonial outposts where foreign interest and designs have been predominant. Within this period of struggle, Africa’s finest patriots have lost their lives. Those who clamored for complete independence were termed communist and liquidated. Their spirit and the unquestionable loyalty they showed for their compatriots and country is inspiring enough for us to evoke. They laid their lives for Africa, its future and its pride. We must walk in their footsteps. Patrice Lumumba wrote:

My beloved companion, I write you these words not knowing whether you will receive them, when you will receive them, and whether I will still be alive when you read them. Throughout my struggle for the independence of my country, I have never doubted for a single instant that the sacred cause to which my comrades and I have dedicated our entire lives would triumph in the end. But what we wanted for our country — its right to an honorable life, to perfect dignity, to independence with no restrictions — was never wanted by Belgian colonialism and its Western allies, who found direct and indirect, intentional and unintentional support among certain high officials of the United Nations, that body in which we placed all our trust when we called on it for help.

They have corrupted some of our countrymen; they have bought others; they have done their part to distort the truth and defile our independence. What else can I say? ‘That whether dead or alive, free or in prison by order of the colonialists, it is not my person that is important. What is important is the Congo, our poor people whose independence has been turned into a cage, with people looking at us from outside the bars, sometimes with charitable compassion, sometimes with glee and delight. But my faith will remain unshakable. I know and feel in my very heart of hearts that sooner or later my people will rid themselves of all their enemies, foreign and domestic, that they will rise up as one to say no to the shame and degradation of colonialism and regain their dignity in the pure light of day.
We are not alone. Africa, Asia, and the free and liberated peoples in every corner of the globe will ever remain at the side of the millions of Congolese who will not abandon the struggle until the day when there will be no more colonizers and no more of their mercenaries in our country. I want my children, whom I leave behind and perhaps will never see again, to be told that the future of the Congo is beautiful and that their country expects them, as it expects every Congolese, to fulfill the sacred task of rebuilding our independence, our sovereignty; for without justice there is no dignity and without independence there are no free men.

Neither brutal assaults, nor cruel mistreatment, nor torture have ever led me to beg for mercy, for I prefer to die with my head held high, unshakable faith, and the greatest confidence in the destiny of my country rather than live in slavery and contempt for sacred principles. History will one day have its say; it will not be the history taught in the United Nations, Washington, Paris, or Brussels, however, but the history taught in the countries that have rid themselves of colonialism and its puppets. Africa will write its own history and both north and south of the Sahara it will be a history full of glory and dignity.

Do not weep for me, my companion; I know that my country, now suffering so much, ‘will be able to defend its independence and its freedom. Long live the Congo! Long live Africa! PATRICE

Southern Cameroons have defeated La Republique du Cameroun in Banjul. The African commission on Human and Peoples Right has laid to rest the questionable version of the occupiers’ definition of a people. Does this mean we are independent? Far from it. This means we should double our effort in our struggle to regain our homeland. This will take more than rhetorical commitment. It entails sacrifice and the willingness like Lumumba NEVER to see your children again.

This land is our land and we will liberate it just like Gamal Abdel Nassar said “what was taken by force will be liberated by force”. Omar Mokthar also said “No nation has the right to occupy another”. In all, we will liberate the Southern Cameroons “By all means necessary” according to Malcom X

The herald

I salute you prince Larry Ayamba for digging up and displaying that "high spurring"document from one of the greatest freedom fighters that ever
lived.

I hope this letter will spur many of us into action.It will awaken many of us who genuinely want to see Southern Cameroon free from bondage,colonisation,forces of occupation etc.And above all those who want to leave behind an immaculate legacy for posterity.Let's all put our hands on deck to get our future siblings free from this scorge.

The pace has been set and the light is already visible at the tunnel.A little more effort and the yoke will finally be shaked off,no matter the number of mercenaries employed by the respondent state to distract us from our purpose.

More grease to your elbow.

Thanks.

The herald

sorry,shaked should read as shaken.
