Even in their grief, the French Cameroun Colonial Officers can’t for once acknowledge their pains seeing their children being executed daily by the colonial military of French Cameroun. Following the gruesome murder of at least 7 innocent children at Mother Francisca International Bilingual Academy in Kumba, British Cameroons on 24 October, 2020, the women who bore the pain of pregnancy took to the streets of British Southern Cameroons on Tuesday, 27 October, 2020, to denounce the French Cameroun killing of their children. In Bamenda, the grieving mothers confronted the colonial administrators to air their frustration, but as usual, the arrogance of the colonial officers were astounding. At the premises of the Colonial Divisional Officer for Bamenda II, the women were reminded that their lives and pain was nothing to the killers of their children. The D.O, of anglophone origin, minced no word to defend the execution of the innocent civilians in the territory. Apart from describing the tears of the grieving mothers as hypocritical, he promised more killings, ” “Most of them who are out here today know where the boys ….are hiding, but they pretend. If we keep on pretending, we are going to register more of these incidents”. For some of the women, the genocide is a long way from abating. “This is true that for these people we are really dogs and cockroaches”, One protester confided.
Equally reacting to the Colonial D.O.’s statement, one of the protesters whose names we got as Mama Mary, a food vendor at the Bamenda food market said angrily that, the words of the DO is clear indication that, he doesn’t want this crisis to end because of the gains he and others are making from it:“WE EXPECTED THAT THE WIFE WAS EVEN GOING TO JOIN US, CALLING US PRETENDERS IS PROOF THAT, HE IS ONE OF THOSE BENEFITING FROM THE CRISIS. MARK MY WORDS, THEIR DAYS ARE NUMBERED. THEY WERE SHOCKED TO SEE US OUT IN OUR NUMBERS BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT THE MANY SOLDIERS AROUND TOWN WERE GOING TO FRIGHTEN US WITH THEIR GUNS. WE HAVE REFUSED TO BE FRIGHTENED! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! THEY WHO KNOW WHERE THE BOYS ARE, WHAT IS STOPPING THEM FROM GOING THERE AND ARRESTING THEM? WE JUST WANT TO SEE AN END TO THE KILLINGS,” SHE STATED. They grieving people carried placards bearing messages like, ”Education is a must for our children, Education is not negotiable,” ”End the war in the North West and South West Regions of Cameroon,” ”We need peace” among others,
The First ISIS Style Beheading by the DO
The colonial DO of anglophone origin is not new to the massacres in British Southern Cameroons. As DO for Belo Local Government in Boyo County in 2018, Mr. Nicolas Nkongho Wanchang, presided over the first beheading in the ongoing genocide. A soldier who took part in the murder, and is living in regret till date recounts that, Mr. Nicolas ordered the killing of Late Mr. Chiabah Samuel, popularly known for his jovial nature as Sam Soya, Father of 5. The handicap was mangled and beheaded in Belo, in Northern Zone of British Southern Cameroon, on February 3, 2018.
In order to please his masters, and the few BetiBulu militias who had descended on Belo following the killings of the colonial Gerdame, the D.O did not fail to do his job as a quisling. He personally interviewed Samsoya, asking the questions that only an anglophone, familiar with the locality could. After the interrogation, and like Pontus Pilate, the D.O – a son of Kembong in the Southern Zone of British Cameroon /Ambazonia ordered the elimination of Samsoya and his friends with no remorse.
In the video arrogantly posted by the military killers, the late handicap is seen denying the charges leveled against him by his killers. Another tortured victim is equally seen claiming the handicapped Mr. Chiabah was behind a recent killing of a female Bulubeti militia/military on a killing spree in the village; trump up charges the soft-spoken Mr. Chiabah denied. The fake witness (not known by Belo inhabitants), and who was later killed alongside Samsoya, unconsciously revealed that the soldiers had already killed some other people. Hear him, “those lying outside…”. These American-trained soldiers with the complicity of French Cameroun’s-appointed administrative officers apart from killing Mr. Chiabi, equally destroyed his home and burnt his transportation bikes, even though he was survived by a wife and five children.
Mr. Chiabi’s confession, of ignorance, before his public execution did not go unnoticed. Some Participants to the gruesome murder truly saw his innocence, but were coerced into murdering the handicap, who could barely stand. According to one of the unwilling participants, to the ISIS-style beheading of Samsoya (name still in a time capsule), their boss was the French Cameroun’s appointed Divisional Officer (D.O) for Belo Mr. NICHOLAS NKONGHO MANCHANG. As an Assistant D.O for Fundong , interim for Belo and later D.O for Belo, Mr. NICHOLAS NKONGHO MANCHANG, knew Samsoya very well. Mr. Sam Soya was a regular supplier of Weed to most of the colonial Gerdames in Belo, under Mr. NICHOLAS NKONGHO MANCHANG. It was no secret to Belo indigenes that the Gerdames, together with some of the youths they later murdered usually enjoy their “nkuh” or marijuana under a Kola tree, well known to inhabitants of Belo and the D.O.
According to our source, “if the D.O had not ordered for Samsoya’s beheading, we wouldn’t have done it. He was the top administrator of the sub-divison. He said. In a baffling mood he said, “il était anglophone et nous a donné l’ordre de les tuer. C’est terrible. (He was an anglophone and gave us orders to kill them. It’s terrible). I know maybe he was scared of a revenge if they would have been set free”. He continued. “But to take away their lives in…..

After the killings and the executions of many alongside Ndawara, Mr. Nkongho was promoted to Bamenda in the same colonial capacity and responsibilities.
