Hey we can do the same thing.

Legion(for we are many)

Well they got independence.That is the most important thing.Rising from ashes;but they are free at last.We on the other hand are not.We don't have to rise because we already have enough infrastructure to start our engine of independence.I wonder why the power station in yoke was closed?Why Victoria still doesn't have a seeport?Why the air fiealds in Tiko and other parts of our nation haven't been opened.They prefer to keep an air port running in Garoua with nobody flighing than to run one in Bamenda for example.What happened to the marketing board?If you look closely we are very much dependent on them for every thing.We had a parliament in Buea we closed it down.It is time for us to start opening the doors of our freedom.Ambazonia will be free tomorrow or the next.

Let`s not get over ourselves yet. The referandum will take place on the 15th of January next year, eventhough they`ll most likely vote for seccession.

On the plus side:
- the separation is not only based on geography, but also on ethnolinguistic grounds, so there will be les of an identity crisis.
- they`ve got proven reserves of oil and gas, so there`ll be resources available to speed up development.

On the down side:
- Very low literacy rate (less than 15%)- they`ll probably have ownership, but little control of their resources, as foreign concerns will come into the picture
- It will be a landlocked country, relying on ports in the North (the oil is currently transported by pipeline through the North) - What happens if the North retaliates?

I`m personally skeptical of initiatives spearheaded by imperialistic countries like the USA, especially if there`s oil in the horizon.

The citizens of the future Southern Sudan better hope for benevolent leadership, as there`ll be no more excuses

limbekid

"15th of January" should read "5th of January"

Bumaye

Juba is closer to Mombasa than Port Sudan. Kenya would be itching for the business. Southern Sudanese have endured untold suffering from the Arabs through the decades and centuries.

Bumaye

The Southern Sudan independence struggle was not initiated by the Americans. Get your facts straight.

limbekid

@ Bumaye,

Facts? If you read the article it clearly states the peace deal was brokered by the US in 2005. It also states that the US currently aids the territory with at least $300 million dollars a year. If that`s not influence, what is?

BTW I got the referandum date wrong again. It should be the 9th of January
