On the 22 September, 2017, British Cameroonians took to streets of their territory demanding for the return of the two-state federation that let to their being in 1961. They were carrying peace plants with slogans like “No Violence” etc. French Cameroun Colonial Forces were on stand by and shot to kill. Helicopter gun ships fired at protesters. At the end, hundreds were killed. Others were deliberately maimed to discourage them from ever expressing themselves freely. Read the Detatails here. At no time during the demonstrations did anyone call for the overthrow of sit-tight dictator Biya. Fast forward to 22 September, 2020. Citizens of French Cameroun came out on the streets of their towns, with the sole purpose to evict Paul Biya from his Etoudi Bunker. They were met with scouts in the name of soldiers. Prior to the demonstrations, a secret circular filtered out from the Etoudi mausoleum, said to be from the missing Paul Biya. The circular instructed the French Cameroun officers not to shoot at the demonstrators. That day in British Southern Cameroon, a special ghost town was observed, sadly, the French Cameroun soldiers pulled 5 civilians from their homes in the neighbourhood of Ngomgham in Bamenda and executed them. The following day 23 September, 2020, in the village of Lysoka in the territory, another six were still pulled out of their homes and executed. Today 24 September, 2020 still in Bamenda, another 4 civilians were arrested as they went about their businesses, executed and dumped elsewhere. While the population of the territory mourn these extra-judiial killings, the two individuals who were paramount in trying to unseat the dictator Paul Biya – Maurice Kamto of the MRC Party and Renowned Barrister AKERE Muna of the PDF Party, whom relatives of those being killed in French Cameroun voted for them in 2018 have remained mute to the public executions in British Cameroon. Barister Akere Muna who hails from the British Cameroon and doesn’t hide his global connectedness to leaders of organizations and countries that claim to uphold human rights has been no where to be found. He has selectively tweeted about killings linked to the British Cameroon restoration forces, but not the daily executions ongoing in the territory. In all his tweets with global leaders, he has shied away from taling about the Genocide in his own place of origin. He deviated from this selective attention when he condemned the2020 Valentine day massacre in Ngarbuh. The rally in French Cameroun was called by Mr. Kamto who insists he won the 2018 presidential election in Cameroun.
A closer look at the activities of this presidential aspirant in the days ahead including his underground work of trying to negotiate a safe passage to and from prison of British Cameroon prisoners locked up in Yaounde to attend a conference on the crisis with former African Head-of-states in East Africa. Worthy of note is the fact that these leaders were returned to Cameroon as refugees, violating international law as Cameroon and Nigeria are still to have an extradition treaty. Our write-up will try to examine the kind of leader Barrister Akere would have been, if after his failed bid, he hasn’t been able to stand for the oppressed people in British Cameroon in which renowned genocide expert Prof Gregory Stanton of genocide Watch has affirmatively states that what is happening to the people of the territory is GENOCIDE. (Read Prof. Stanton’s Declaration here). This write-up is in no way trying to question his stand on the future of Kamerun, but his silence in the face of a GENOCIDE – to be accurate, ATROCITY CRIMES ON THE MINORITY ENGLISH-SPEAKING PEOPLE OF BRITISH CAMEROON.
