Hong Kong Unrest: just one in a String of the queen’s Colonial Fiascos

The unrest in Hong Kong depicts a broader frustration of not only these islanders, but hordes of former British colonial possessions. It historically highlights Britain’s insensitivity to the pain citizens of some of its former possessions are witnessing. Apart from Hong Kong, a string of former British territories are undergoing agitations and strive against their new colonial masters imposed on them by the bequeathing British authorities. Eritrea had to regain its independence from Ethiopia thru a brutal war of independence that saw about 570,000 lives lost for it to achieve what the British willfully denied her, when they handed the territory over to Ethiopia.The British colony of the Southern Cameroons has been in a genocidal civil war since November 2016, with its British-imposed administering masters – France and French Cameroun or La Republique du Cameroun. Here more than 20,000 people have been killed. The Volta Region in Ghana is threatening to regain their own freedom from their British-imposed masters – Ghana. The history and origin of Boko Haram, points to the neglect of the portions of British Northern Cameroons, that was forced to join Nigeria in 1961. Former Boko Haram towns like Baga, Bama, Marte, Magdali, Chibok and Gwoza, are all areas in the former British Northern Cameroons.

how did we get here?

Post-WWI marked the second balkanization of Africa. Just like Berlin, almost 30 years earlier, the victorious powers with one defeated power – France, found themselves on the decision-making table in 1919. In addition to reparations from Germany, Britain and France shared the losers’ colonial possessions. In some of the possessions like German Kamerun and Togoland, the territories were split again between the UK and France, with no input from the Africans, just like in Berlin in 1884/85. In German Kamerun, the British took just a smaller portion (20%) and attached to its earlier possession – Nigeria. The same smaller section of Togoland (Volta Region) was attached to Gold Coast (Ghana). In the case of Eritrea, (after Italy was defeated in WWII), the British looted the territory and later enmeshed her with Ethiopia, with no input from the Africans.

Queen Elizabeth II, Presided over the Decolonization of British Colonies and thus the current mess, which she can correct.

During the struggle for independence in the 1960s, while the French were willing to make their own possessions independent countries, as mandated by the UN Trusteeship Council , the British unilaterally with the complicity of some UN member states denied their own possessions the right to self rule or full independence, thus laying the foundation for most of the conflicts we find in Africa today. These territories were forced as (minorities) into a so-called independence by becoming part of other countries; a gross violation of the UN Trusteeship Mandate, which was to prepare the UN Trust Territories for self-autonomy or independence. Worst of it was the absence of firm guarantees of these countries’ unique linguistic, cultural and colonial legacies inherited from the British as they joined (in the case of Southern Cameroons and Eritrea) completely different countries with different cultures and systems. In 1961 for example, the British colony of Cameroons (Northern and Southern Cameroons) were asked whether they wanted to gain independence by joining either Nigeria or La Republique du Cameroun (French Cameroun); both countries that had got their independence in 1960. Like Hong Kong, the British refused to seek the opinions of the citizens of these territories whether they wanted to gain independence as separate countries; a choice the French gave to their own portions.The French at no time ever asked their own portions whether they wanted to gain independence by joining the British portions.This notion of full independence by joining other independent countries, defeated the very purpose of independence, as no one gains independence by becoming part of another country. Talk less of dumping them into bigger and more powerful countries with no firm guarantee of their minority rights.

Atiku abubakar is not a nigerian

The results of these conditional independence for these former British territories have been catastrophic. The section of the Cameroons that was forced to join Nigeria in 1961 – today parts of Borno, Taraba and Adamawa states in Nigeria, have been marginalized leading to the birth of Boko Haram. (Read exhaustive details here). Till date, they remain neglected and treated as non-full citizens of Nigeria. The region has the second highest poverty rate in Nigeria. In April (2019), the ruling  All Progressive Congress (APC), of President Buhari, stated categorically that the opposition Presidential contender Mr. Atiku Abubakar, of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) was not a Nigerian, and thus can’t be president of the country It was a direct reference to British Northern Cameroons that only became part of Nigeria, more than a year(1961) after Nigeria’s independence (in 1960). Mr. Atiku, no doubt was born in British Northern Cameroons village of Jade in 1946. The region will not be part of Nigeria until 1961, when the British in complicity with the UNO, violated terms of the Trusteeship Council. A violation still endorsed by the UN today, despite the bloodshed it is causing these former colonies that were denied full independence.

From Marginalization to genocide

The same marginalization became the modus operandi in the British Southern Cameroons – the section that joined French Cameroun. The British like with Hong Kong, principally handed over the territory to the Bigger French Cameroun and France, hoping for an equal treatment. It did not happen. La Republique du Cameroon (French Cameroun), abolished the Federation of the two countries, militarized the territory and introduced a robust assimilation process. French teachers and administrators were sent to the territory. The British judicial system of the territory was systematically abolished with French judges to administer the French Civil Judicial System to a territory that practices the British Common Law System.Their crucial infrastructure like seaports and airports were abandoned. The once self-governing people of British Southern Cameroons practically became a colony of France and French Cameroun with its people treated as second class citizens. Their well-established democratic culture was abolished. It is worth remembering that in 1959 British Southern Cameroons, then a self-autonomous territory, organized democratic elections for a third time and affected the first peaceful and democratic transfer of power in 20th Century Africa . Any agitations against their treatment were violently crushed by the majority French-speaking country.

Complains Ignored: These complaints and agitations over the years to the British authorities to correct the error and the UN to respect its Trusteeship Articles of granting full independence to the former UN Trust Territories have been met with silent rebuke, thanks to a robust French lobbying influence. Like Atiku Abubakar, the English people of British Southern Cameroons who joined French Cameroun were made clear by the French majority that none of them will ever rule Cameroun. They have been called several names like the Biafrans (meaning they are Nigerians), dogs, and cubes of sugar ready to dissolve into the bigger French pond, enemies in the house etc. The result is a genocidal civil war, that has been raging on since 2016. More than 20,000 people killed and more than 10,000 homes burnt (click here for detailes and images) by the French Cameroun military supported by France to complete the assimilation of the English-speaking people.

BBC Report on the Burning of Villages by French Cameroun Soldiers

UK Missing in Action

While the French and Francophonie have robustly supported the French Cameroun to complete the colonization/assimilation of the British Cameroons, Britain and the Commonwealth have stayed on the sidelines, acting like colonies of France, even with demonstrable Atrocity Crimes. The U.S Government recently scaled back its military aid to French Cameroun citing questionable human rights abuses. The British reaction has been to pump in more money ($1.5m) to the French Cameroun government to defend their oil interest in the seas of British Cameroons, while their citizens are being killed and forced into exile by the French Cameroun military . About 75,000 are registered as refugees in Nigeria. Others are spread across English-speaking West African countries like Ghana. More than a million are also internally-displaced. Numerous organizations like the Norwegian Refugee Council describe the conflict as the most neglected in the world. Close to 10000 homes have been burnt and close to 20,000 civilians killed by the well-equipped and funded French Cameroun army (click here for more details)

Hong Kong: Lessons not Learnt by the British

The agitations in these regions forcefully joined to strange countries started long before the 1997 British handover of Hong Kong to China. British authorities despised these concerns, despite warnings from the U.S State Department of an impending war in Cameroun due to the maltreatment of the English-speaking people by /France and /French Cameroun. Had the British Government paid any attention to these legitimate grievances in these other former dominoes, there is no doubt that it would have had an impact on Hong Kong, probably forestalling the unrest by helping the UK put in place robust guarantees that protect Hong Kong’s unique British colonial heritage of freedom and democracy, prior to the 1997 agreement with China. Like in Africa, the British shied away from directly asking the Hong Kong people about their future. The notion of one country, two systems was wishful thinking and gross naivety on the British. It did not happen in Eritrea, Nigeria, British Southern Cameroons, Volta Region, and will never happen in Hong Kong.

1997 Hong Kong Handover

In all these cases, the majority has attempted to assimilate or erase the colonial identities of the smaller countries that joined them. The bogus claim of territorial integrity or domestic affair has been used to commit Atrocity Crimes on these minorities, even by countries that depend on foreign aid like La Republique du Cameroun (French Camerooun). Hong Kong is on the last leg of its complete annihilation of its English values. China will gradually wean the territory of any trace of western values. The writing is on the wall. Shanghai is increasingly being projected by the Chinese as the new financial capital of the area, instead of Hong Kong, acknowledged globally for that. The same scenario has been playing out in British Southern Cameroons for decades leading to the current civil war which is still being ignored by the British.

Ongoing Genocide in British Cameroon. Villagers rounded up and executed by French Cameroun Soldiers.

Britain’s Hypocritical Insensitivity

Former British Minister for Africa, Harriet Baldwin, Defending the genocide on British Cameroonians because of UK’s economic interest.

 It is no coincidence that the unrest all involve British former colonies or spheres of influence like Kashmir, which became fodder for Pakistan and India. Britain had the power to constitute a holistic independent Kashmir before colonially-leaving the Indian-sub continent. Like British Cameroons, Eritrea, and recently the Volta Region in Ghana, the British have remained insensitive to the pain these former colonies are facing with their new colonial masters. They have also been busy pulling out of Europe (BREXIT), while shunning similar referendum for these aggrieved colonies. Nationalism is a stubborn feeling that once a people with legitimate and founded reasons rise to assert it, no amount of fire power or diplomatic hypocrisy can eliminate. At the heart of this is the colonial inheritance. African nationalism is centered on colonial lines, not religion or ethnic makeup. Central to this nationalism is language, which is a potent weapon of power and influence. The French know this and are bent on protecting and expanding their global influence through language. This explains their forced imposition of the French language in all facets in British Southern Cameroon. This is tantamount to nothing but re-colonization. The territory is administered by French Cameroun appointed administrators answerable to the French Cameroun authorities.(watch French Cameroun’s president admitting their assimilation plan of British Camroons). It is time the British stepped up and re-examine their colonial disasters and correct now to forestall the unrest and genocidal killings especially in British Southern Cameroons.

Boris Johnson, must assert UK’s role in British Cameroon, and not capitulate to France’s assimilation of this rich British Territory that is proud to still sing “Long Live the Queen”

What about the treaties?

Some have argued about treaties signed in the case of Hong Kong, with China. No African country was colonized without treaties with the local chiefs or Kings. The Germans had those treaties. None was ever respected by the British and French, who seized the territories. Also, a treaty (in the case of Hong Kong) signed with a few fishermen a century earlier cannot really be binding to 6.5 million people more than a century later. The British had no interest in consulting with the citizens of these colonies, even though they were to live with the British decision about their future. Hong Kong residents, British Cameroonians, Eritreans or the Volta regions were NEVER asked about their right to full independence. This as has proven, was a fetal error that the British government still doesn’t bother to correct. These errors have largely been done under the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. With her still alive, it’s time for Buckingham Palace to end the genocide in British Southern Cameroon. Her Majesty’s government must correct the error by asking the UN and Its Trusteeship Council to conduct another referendum for the people to include the right to full independence as was mandated by the Trusteeship Council. Anything short of this is a continuation of the genocide that her majesty’s office and the Commonwealth have ignored, despite the abuses that smack of the values of the Commonwealth of Nations, which she leads.

The scam Ngarbuh Investigation: How Chemuta divine’s Human Rights commission was used to Deceive the World about the Ngarbuh massacre.

The French Cameroun militias were ruthless. It was a scene that mimics the 1984 movie, “Killing Fields”, (movie about the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia). Yes Ngarbuh was a tip of the iceberg of the carnage and savagery of an unperturbed French Cameroun State militia and its local affiliates. Ngarbuh unfortunately created a global jolt to the lethargic global community. For a moment, they came face-to–face with the tragedy of British Cameroon – Black Africa’s first democracy, currently under French Cameroun occupation since 1961, and genocide since 2016.

No age group was spared by the 87-year-old dictator – Paul Biya; pregnant women, children, some 87 years younger than him were executed. Others were burnt at home. A total of 37 innocent peole including 13 children were massacred. (Please read a true and detailed report of the massacre here). When the world accused the French-supported colonial French Cameroun government of the Atrocity Crimes, the initial answer was to deny, deny and deny it as usual. The world like the last wish of a dying man, called for an independent investigation. Willy-nilly, the same killers were allowed to investigate themselves.

Newly-Released Ngarbuh Video showing the mass Burial

Deceiving the World

To give a semblance of credibility to the world, the lying oligarchy in Yaounde enlisted individuals/organizations with global appeal titles like the National Commission for Human Rights and Freedoms, the Catholic Church etc, all controlled by the regime. The military that killed the innocent women and children piloted the whole scam investigation. At the end, the outcome barely accused the military, but shift the blame to the “boogie man” – Ambazonian soldiers in the name of terrorists. It is a well-documented fact that, no restoration forces were present in the area. While some members of the global community appreciated the result of the scam investigation, the facts remain that the Ngarbuh 2020, Valentine’s Day massacre was a War Crime that must be prosecuted at the known courts, set up to prosecute such crimes. The Catholic Church that had earlier concluded who carried out the massacre, when the government was sending its men to lie about the killings went along with the fake verdict, through her silence – a body that is supposed to stand for life, truth, freedom and justice. From every indication, the Church and the National Commission for Human Rights and Freedoms, had no meaningful input in the scam Ngarbuh military investigation, but the presumed credibility of these bodies zonked the global community.

Some of the Ngarbuh Government Liars

The Political National Commission for Human Rights and Freedoms in French Cameroun

It is a body well named with a global appeal, but an arm of the genocidal regime in French Cameroon. It is headed by one of their party militant – Mr. Chemuta Divine Banda, until his death on the 18th of May, 2020 in Yaounde. Mr. Chemuta was a former diplomat with several ambassadorial years in the West. As usual with the ruling Cameroun Peoples’ Democratic Movement (CPDM) Party in Cameroun, being a senior citizen is one of the cherished criteria for acceptability and advancement in the party. Returning home, Mr. Banda did not fail to enlist in the party. He ran unsuccessfully as a CPDM member of parliament in his native Bafut, British Cameroon. Such open militancy was no doubt assuring to the king pins of the party. As a former diplomat as well, he was conversant with the West. , after all, they have known him well as a diplomat. With such firm beliefs, Mr. Chemuta Divine was thus appointed by dictator Biya as the Chairman of the National Commission for Human Rights and Freedoms in 2003. With abuses documented all over the country, the Human Rights boss refused to assert his authority. His title no doubt was used as a ruse to the global community that, there is a watch dog on abuses in Cameroun.

Dr. Chemuta Divine Banda

Dr. Divine Banda Challenged by biya loyalists

The last evidence of the commission’s worthlessness was on 9th May, 2019, at a conference in Yaounde, when the chairman was rudely interrupted by his two vices from dictator Paul Biya’s Bulubeti clan – James Mouangue Kobilla and Professor Atangana nee Ngo Oum Therese). Mr. Chemuta Divine Banda, had revealed that he had called the octogenerian – Paul Biya, to ask him to halt the war in British Cameroon and engage in inclusive dialogue. The vice persons, in the midst of observers and journalists made it clear to Mr. Chemuta Banda, that he as chairman was to get an authorization from them to mention anything about the killings and burning in British Cameroon. Since then, Mr. Chemuta went mute on the Atrocity Crimes. His message shifted from inclusive dialogue to the sweeping chant by genocide apologists that many British Cameroonians are for effective decentralization. He even went further to lie about the killings in the Southern Cameroons. Of the more than 7000 killed in 2018 alone, Mr. Divine Banda and his Human Rights Report for 2018 specifically states that only “…193 civilians were killed in the North West and South West Regions with 114 of the killings attributed to separatist groups, 69 to the defense and security forces, and 10 on unknown persons. It adds that 50 security personnel were killed as a result of separatist attack while two gendarmes were killed by their colleagues”. (For a full report of the more than 7000 killed in the British Cameroon in 2018, including vilages burnt and refugees, please click here). Mr. Divine Banda remained silent even when his native village Bafut was torched severally with heads of his tribesmen hung on poles by the French Cameroun Bulubeti Militias. All these while the French Cameroun authorities use his position to deceive the world. It was him and his organization that was put forth as the lead body for the Fake Ngarbuh investigation, by French Cameroun, while the French Cameroun military was actually in charge..

Mr. Chemuta Must have died a frustrated man.

Many o f the journalists who covered Mr. Divine Banda over the years, all testified that he was virtually muzzled at his role as the head of the National Commission for Human Rights in Cameroun. While he abhors the regime he served privately, publicly he remained glued not only to the fake directives from Biya and his Bulubeti clique, but the juicy compensatory package that comes with serving as a toothless dog to Africa’s oldest and most brutal dictator. ” He hated what was going on in Cameroon” one journalist said. Like most Anglophone elites who have stuck their head in the sand to the atrocities on their people, nothing keeps them glued to the regime, other than the initial scheme set up by French Cameroun in the 60s to destroy West Cameroon – artificially imposed dependency. While the territory was flourishing with limitless potentials in the 60s, French Cameroun Under its 1st president Ahmadou Ahidjo, made sure he decapitated such vitality to impose a fake dissolution of the federal system under the ruse of poor liquidity and insolvency. Today, decent and respectable men have sold their dignity, values and people for crumbs from the bully who steals from you, and later asked you to beg for crumbs of your looted bounties. One thing that the likes of Chemuta Divine Banda had that could have saved their legacy for generations to come is the ability to resign rather than impose a conflict on their values. Dr. Chemuta is an honorable man and a devoted christian, Like Chinua Achebe says in “Things Fall Apart“, “a man belongs to his “fatherland” when things are good and life is sweet. But when there is sorrow and bitterness, he finds refuge in his motherland. Most British Southern Cameroon Elites have failed to commune with their kinsmen. They have sided with the fatherland – French Cameroun in wrecking havoc to their communities of birth, which is where one finds refuge and solace in times of danger and rejection by the enemy. From one victim in Bafut, whose son was brutally killed by the Bulubeti Militias of missing Paul Biya, Chemuta Divine Banda died a coward.

Ritual Beheading in Bafut amongst the +231 British Cameroonians Killed in April 2020. Shocking Details.

British Southern Cameroonians are used to blood on their streets, and so when one of theirs is beheaded by the French Cameroun Bulubeti Militias with no trace of blood as is usual, then tongues must be wagging of why. From Samsoya, Eileen, 4-month-old baby Martha or the six month old Abigail in Ndop murdered with her mother, the surface was flowing with blood. Another 4-month-old in Babanki even slept overnight on the blood of her murdered mother. Human Blood to British Cameroonians is a gift they have come to acknowledge from the genocidal regime of Paul Biya. Back in their camps, and with conversations with friends and families, the Bulubeti militias pride themselves of having rained blood on the “terrorists” (innocent British Cameroonian civilians).

The Bafut Ritual Beheading of Awah Pius, by French cameroun Soldiers

Handicapped Awah Pius, an innocent prison graduate from French Cameroun colonial prison, was at home that 26 April, 2020 in Bafut, minding his own business, when the sanguinary Bulubeti Militias, beckoned on him to come. When he approached them, they demanded for drinking water, which he gladly quenched their thirst like a good Samaritan. Later on, a second batch of the soldiers came along, passed the young man with no issues, and descended into a nearby compound and shot an innocent elder man called Mr. Nditha Raphael, before realizing his age wouldn’t be suitable for the ritualistic mission set for them. Since no young man could be spotted in the village, the Bulubeti troops hurriedly returned to Awah’s home and took him and killed him. Like the pig in “Lord of the Flies“, his head was cut off and the blood carefully collected by some of the soldiers for the rituals. “I was taken aback, one of the informants narrates”.

Video of Awah without any blood.

Practically emptied of his blood, the body was dumped in front of his home and the head like the pig in “Lord of the Flies“, posted on a pole for the family and village pain. Like other savage killings, no blood was where Awah was decapitated. The poor family members could be heard demanding whether their son was a cow to be slaughtered like one. By the time they left the village, more than 22 innocent civilians whom they call terrorists were mercilessly murdered and about 20 homes burnt. To crown their ritualistic action, a mother in her 60s was gang-raped by the Bulubeti Militias. ” I bled profusely for two days before I was taken to the health center”, the traumatized woman narrates. (Read her story here). The image of the health center was void of anything worthy of a health unit. The main hospital in the village was destroyed by the French Cameroun militias/soldiers, with equipment and mattresses carted away by the soldiers in the night. Domestic animals like goats and pigs were either roasted by the soldiers or skinned and taken away.

Bangem Massacre 22 April, 2020

Bafut was not the only massacres in the month of April in British Cameroon. Four days earlier in Bangem in the Southern Zone of the territory, the executions were remorseless. Six young men arrested in their homes were massacred in the most cruel means imaginable. Cameroon News Agency says, French Cameroun colonial soldiers had invaded the area under the pretext of meeting any restoration fighters but “failing to meet the armed separatist fighters, they waited till about 6 a.m. before beginning the process of arresting 6 young men, most of whom were removed from their homes and killed before their relatives, except for one who was captured while returning from hunting overnight in the bush. He was killed and the game he caught taken away. The names of these boys killed include inter alia: 1. Epie Thiery, 2. Ebong Blaise, 3. Ngole Justice, 4. Nzime Lawrence Mesumbe, 5. Sone Desmond Muabe and 6. Nsime Peter. They were executed and carried on the military truck and dumped along the road as they drove out of the village”.

Through out the month of April, the Genocide intensified, with innocent victims tied and shot in Bamnda, Ndop, Kumbo, Oku, Muyuka, Mamfe and other towns and villages in the territory. Others were shot for not putting on face masks by the arrogant Bulubeti militias. Several villages were also torched by the colonial soldiers like in Muyuka were several persons were also killed. Below are the figure count of those killed in the month of April 2020 in the British Southern Cameroons, by the colonial French Cameroun soldiers backed by France and the Francophonie. Intensified also this month is the looting and destruction, comparable only to the withdrawal of Iraqi troops from Kuwait in 1991. Double click the image for enlargement and details.

French Cameroun Bulubeti Militias wreak Havoc in Human Rights Boss’ Village, with Beheading, Looting etc

In William Golding’s 1954 book “Lord of the Flies“, savagery and evil engulf innocent youths unchecked on an island. Here they manifest this freedom with cruelty by first viciously killing a pig and perching its head on a pole where flies congregate. Just around the time, Golding wrote this fictional novel, true heads of humans adorned French colonial Cameroun roadsides in the Bamileke and Bassa regions. Till date France has concealed this genocide from the world. Colonial French Cameroun citizens who were scared of being the next trophy head to be displayed by the roadside emigrated to the Free, peaceful British Southern Cameroon for safety. The French Cameroun colonial beasts could not trespass into British Cameroon to get any more heads to put on staffs, until the UNO and Britain handed over the British Southern Cameroons to the beast – France and French Cameroun in 1961. Like Jack and his friends in Lord of the Flies with no laws, nor formal control on the island, thus the anarchy and cruelty, French Cameroun soldiers are scofflaws, violating every global law, ethics or biblical cannons in the British Southern Cameroons.

The Invisible smoke?

With the world seeing the smoke rising like it rose for rescuers in Lord of the Flies, but deliberately looking the other way, French Cameroun Bulubeti militias – soldiers, have not only hung heads on sticks, but charred villages, and roasted citizens in their abodes. Like in Lords of the Flies, where the kids first lit their fires in the night, thus delaying their rescue, French Cameroun authorities have not only lobbied western governments to silence, but have silenced internal opposition. Churches have been silenced through co-option with threats and largess. Formal institutions with global appeals have been choked with cronies, ready to write a clean Bill of Rights to the international community.

The latest reality is in Bafut, home of the Chairman of the ruse called National Commission for Human Rights in Cameroun, Mr. Chemuta Divine Banda. Mr. Chemuta is a former diplomat with several ambassadorial years in the west. As usual with the ruling Cameroun Peoples’ Democratic Movement (CPDM) Party in Cameroun, being a senior citizen is one of the cherished criteria for acceptability and advancement in the party. Returning home, Mr. Banda did not fail to enlist in the party. He ran unsuccessfully as a CPDM member of parliament in his native Bafut. Such open militancy was no doubt assuring to the king pins of the party. As a former diplomat as well, he was suited to conceal abuses to the West, after all, they have known him well as a diplomat. With such firm beliefs, Mr. Chemuta Divine was thus appointed by dictator Biya as the Chairman of the National Commission for Human Rights and Freedoms. With abuses documented all over the country, the stooge has remained mute, with his title used as a ruse to the global community that, there is a watch dog on abuses in Cameroun.

The Genocide in British Cameroon and his weakness

Dr. Chemuta Divine Banda

With thousands killed and villages burnt in the territory by French Cameroun Bulubeti militias, the commission was no where to be found. The last evidence of the commission’s worthlessness was on 9th May, 2019, at a conference in Yaounde, when the chairman was rudely interrupted by his two vices from dictator Paul Biya’s Bulubeti clan – James Mouangue Kobilla and Professor Atangana nee Ngo Oum Therese).

The vice persons, in the midst of observers and journalists made it clear to Mr. Chemuta Banda, that he as chairman was to get an authorization from them to mention anything about the killings and burning in British Cameroon. Since then, Mr. Chemuta has remained mute on the Atrocity Crimes, while the French Cameroun authorities use his position to deceive the world.

The Bafut Rape, massacres, Beheading and Chemuta’s silence

Mr. Chemuta has remained silent on the destruction in his own village, Bafut since the onset of the British Cameroon uprising. Several people have lost their lives from the Bulubeti militias. Bafut has been burnt, with the soldiers attacking even the sacred Bafut Palace – UNESCO world Heritage site. In all, more than 300 people have lost their lives in the village.

Gallery of Some of the Killings and Destruction in Bafut since 2016

Bafut Fon’s Palace: UNESCO World Heritage Site; Attacked Severally by the French Cameroun Bulubeti Militias

The latest gruesome murder was on the 26th of April, 2020, when the marauding French Cameroun soldiers invaded the quiet village. The shooting, destruction and looting were the rule. The sacred palace was desecrated, personal properties like goats and chickens were seized, some roasted in the same compounds after chasing the owners away. A lucid warning was sent to the world and to Mr. Chemuta in particular, that titles and positions don’t matter as long as you are from British Cameroon. Awa Pius, an innocent civilian who had quenched the thirst of the marauding soldiers was beheaded by the same soldiers and his head hung by the roadside for all to see their “professionalism”. An innocent mother in her sixties was gang-raped by the soldiers. More than 32 people were also killed with more than 15 homes torched by the soldiers (details later). In all these Atrocity Crimes,, the Human Rights crusader – Chemuta Banda, is no where to be found. His close collaborators and friends at their social groups are still to get a word of remorse from the head of the National Commission for Human Rights and Freedoms in Cameroun. Who doubts the fact that, when a people (British Cameroonians) are called dogs, they deserve to die.

She looks shaken on her hospital bed, after she was taken away and gang-raped by French Cameroun Bukubeti militias on a scorched-earth policy in Bafut, North West British Cameroon. The mother in her sixties said she bled profusely after the rape on 3 April, 2020. She says she lost a sizable amount of blood and was only taken to the poorly-equipped hospital in the area the next day. The main hospital – Manji, was destroyed by the soldiers who also beheaded a civilian. Despite calls by the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres for a global ceasefire to enable an inclusive fight against the Covid-19 virus, French Cameroun colonial forces have rather used the occasion to intensify the killing and destruction in the British Cameroons, while the world’s attention is trailed on the virus. More than 20,000 people have been killed since 2016, when the uprising began. For more on the genocide, click here. Below is the victim in her own words.

UN ALERT: +220 NON-COVID-19 Military MASSACRES IN English cAMEROON IN MARCH 2020.

The tweet above epitomizes the arbitrary killing of British Southern Cameroonians by the French Cameroun Bulubeti Militias/Sodiers of missing 87-year-old Paul Biya. The innocent journeymen, had just one pre-existing condition – they were dogs/British Cameroonians; good for the “gallows”. Their killing on March 31st, 2020, is the new normal since the killing in 2016 of Akum Julius and his colleagues who went on the streets to protest their marginalization by the French Cameroun colonial government. Till date, more than 20,000 have been killed, prompting the world’s finest mind on Genocide Dr. Greg Stanton, of Genocide Watch to call it a Full Genocide. (Click here to listen to Dr. Stanton’s Interview). The four innocent boys killed at Eyumojock in Manyu County of the territory were just part of the more than 220 innocent British Cameroonians massacred in the month of April 2020, by the sanguinary French Cameroun Militias who today are called occupational or colonial forces by the British Southern Cameroonians who have not ceased to show their disdain for them.

In the village of Ndu in the northern part of the territory, on the 12 March-2020, Grand Mama Ngwafku Adama, in her late 70s or early 80s, was on her way to the fields, when the happy trigger Bulubeti Militias unleashed their French-paid cartridges on her. She committed no crime. After eliminating her in the presence of her family members, the scofflaws took videos and close-ups of her dusty body to show to the world and their colonial bosses in the colonial capital Yaounde/Paris. From one of the close-ups, the image shows a dusty granny who must have whirled herself on the ground before finally giving up. Although such images have failed to prick the global community to end the genocide, it no doubt has everlasting psychological effect on the victims who watched the action unfold. Many citizens who have witnessed such barbarism have died from the shock afterwards. Such was the case of Mr. Ngwa Peter, from Bafut, whose son was shot in front of him, and forced to watch him bleed to death by the French Cameroun Bulubeti Militias.

Granny Ngwafku was not the only woman or farmer killed this March 2020, by the trigger-happy colonial French Cameroun forces. Five innocent boys on their way to the farm in Ngie Village, Momo County of British Cameroun were slaughtered by the soldiers. In addition to killing innocent youths in Weh in Menchum County, an innocent mother was massacred, claiming she was sympathetic to British Southern Cameroon decolonization. Such was the case still in Wum where French Cameroun-funded local militia groups butchered many. The French Cameroun colonially-imposed administrators provide them weapons and protection. All over the territory, from Mautu in Fako County, Tombel in Kupe Muanenguba County, the Bulubeti militias continued their annihilation with pride. When caught by an incensed population like in Old Town, Bamenda, the colonial administrators tried in vain to deny their Atrocities. The population was unbending on the truth, insisting no other forces did the killing of one of theirs, but the French Cameroun militias, who continue to rape, burn and loot all over the territory of British Cameroon. Below is their attempt to deny their genocidal act at Old Town Bamenda.

French Cameroun Colonial Administrators Trying to LIE about their Killings in British Cameroon.

The UN Must Stop this BLOODSHED NOW

With more than 20,000 killed so far, close to 80,000 registered refugees in Nigeria, the world must insists on a ceasefire through an inclusive dialogue that examines the root causes of the conflict. As the days go by, hopes for any peaceful co-habitation between these former two UN-Mandated Trust Territories, are dissipating. While conflicts of unique origins and identities in Europe like in Yugoslavia have been handled through democratic means in which a vote has been called for to ask the wishes of those questioning their sense of being, in Africa and the rest of the third world, economic interests of the UN-member states have taken precedence irrespective of the rivers and streets flowing with innocent human blood. It happened in the conflict between Ethiopia and Eritrea, North vs South Sudan, East Timor vs Indonesia etc.

The British Southern Cameroon, as black Africa’s first democracy accepted to form a union of two equals with French Cameroun in 1961. Their values of freedom, justice, equality and democratic accountability like most Anglophone cultures worldwide have been decimated by the French Cameroun authorities and citizens who believes in strong individuals rather than institutions in the functioning of the state. The UN that coerced the British Territory into such false union has remained mute to the complete annexation of the once proud territory. French values like language, governance and centralization have been imposed on the territory; all violating the terms of the UN-brokered union in 1961. With the killing and burning (+10,000 homes) with more than a million internally-displaced, the French Cameroun authorities backed by France continue to refuse to go back to the table like they did in 1961. It is time for the UN and the United States to end the conflict through a negotiated solution. These killings once again show the intransigent nature of French Cameroun as they have violated and disobeyed every global step to end the conflict. The UN scribe and the Pope, called for a global ceasefire to enable the world handle the deathly Covid-19, but French Cameroun has continued to show that she is not only more deathly than the virus, but is above global laws and authorities. The bloodshed has to end now. For more on the history of the British Southern Cameroons, click here. For the Killings since 2016, Click here.

IS W.H.O COMPLICIT, AS COVID-19 REACHES FRENCH CAMEROUN’S CRAMPED PRISONS WITH NO ACTION DESPITE WARNINGS?

A few weeks back, this media organ warned the world of the potential danger of the Covid-19 reaching the cramped prisons in French Cameroun. The greatest fear was the Nkondengui Prison where more than 9500 prisoners are cramped into an initial space for about 700. Reports coming from the prison today 13 April, 2020 say four inmates died there in two days. Testing later reveal a Covid-19 positive inmate. Commotion erupted in the prison as the other prisoners believe it was a matter of time for them to be infected and probably die. The French Cameroun authorities as usual have sent in their brutal military to suppress the fear-stricken prisoners.

Below is the report earlier directed to the WHO about the calamity waiting to unfold.

Prisoners on Rampage at Nkondengui, Yaounde, 13 April, 2020

Here is the warning salvo to the WHO Head,  Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus re-posted below. You can also read it here

GENOCIDE IN CAMEROUN: +9500 CRAMPED INMATES PUT W.H.O ON NOTICE.

“The images from Italy kept me sleepless, as I wonder what might happen to us.” An emaciated inmate at French Cameroun’s most notorious prison – Nkondngui Maximum Security Prison, in the capital Yaounde, narrates. “We are scared of this virus, even though we know, we are dead people”. AKL a drained-face man in his early 30s intruded into the conversation. “What will happen if the virus reaches us here?”, The frustrated inmate demands as tears welled up his sunken eyes. Apart from asking the reporter to pass on the message to W.H.O and other Human Rights Organizations about their plight, the prisoners who term their conditions as “killing us softly” intimate that, with the courts in French Cameroun on recess due to the Corona epidermic, it was time to release them as there is no avenue for them to seek redress of their plight. Releasing them – prisoners of conscience, they say is a way of fighting the epidermic. They make allusion to New York City in the U.S where the Mayor, Bill De Blasio, has started freeing, non-serious crime offenders, as a means to mitigate the the virus’ spread. In Iran, over 5400 inmates were temporarily released, due to concerns for the prisoners. “Please tell W.H.O, to see these pictures and judge whether they fit the guidelines they specify to countries”. The emaciated prisoner wrestles with loaded frustration.

Both guys and others from British Cameroon were picked up by the French Cameroun army in British Southern Cameroon. They were later accused of sympathizing with the liberation struggle currently taking place in the British colony. Many have never had their day in court. While health experts have stressed on proper hygiene especially hand washing as the best way to stem the virus’ spread, the French Cameroun government has taken no actions to allay the fears of the over 9500 prisoners, cramped into an initial space for 800. water is epileptic which means there are no running toilets, talk-less of basic hand washing. “The tap that is here, at times we stay for three to four days without water“. A prisoner states. These red alerts are no preoccupation of the French Cameroun government that just pocketed about $200,000 from the World Health Organization (WHO), for the Corona fight.

dreaded Nkondengui

The latest pictures from the concentration camp-style dungeon show that, hall ways and tiny yards have been transformed into prison space. Most of those in the dreaded Nkondengui prison are youths whose lives are being wasted away by Africa’s oldest and most brutal dictator – 87-year-old Paul Biya, in Power since 1982. An evidence of the inhumane condition of the Nkondegui Prison and other secret underground torture chambers used by the dictator was sneaked out by one Mr. Ndangoh Patrick. The video shows their living conditions in a dark underground room, with a stench broken toilet.

Build in 1967 to house between 800 – 1500 inmates, the Nkondengui Concentration Camp, today has more than 9,500 prisoners, many of whom have never seen a judge. “In 2011, Amnesty International described the prison conditions to be “harsh, with inmates suffering overcrowding, poor sanitation and inadequate food. Prison guards are poorly trained, ill-equipped and their numbers inadequate for a big prison population”. According to the Interim Government of Ambazonia (British Southern Cameroon), there are about 250 of its citizens in the prison alone. About 3500 others are dispersed in other prisons in French Cameroun and in towns in British Cameroon still controlled by French Cameroun colonial authorities. With the cramped conditions and overbearing security officers who move in and out of the larger community to later mingle with the inmates, the probability of the virus’ spread in the prison is high.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus

Three NBA Millionaires who condone Genocide in their homeland.

“ I feel like racism isn’t over….people  are still behind him…. It’s just a shame” he states in an interview following Trump’s victory in 2016. These condemnations one would have thought were a window into the “good” heart of the French Cameroun born NBA star – Joel Embiid, but is nothing, but hypocrisy. Like an Ostrich, Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia Sixers, Pascal Siakam of the  Toronto Raptors and  Luc Richard Mbah a Moute , formerly of the LA Clippers, have all stuck their heads in the sand to the genocide in their home country – Cameroun. Embiid decried racism in America, but has failed to send out just a tweet against the killing of the minority English-speaking people of British Cameroon, by his 87-year-old “missing” dictator Paul Biya. The Killings shocked the U.S Ambassador to Cameroon, Henry Balerin, to term it “Targeted Killing of the Anglophones. Renowned genocide expert, Dr. Greg Stanton, of Genocide Watch, was more emphatic, calling it a full genocide. These killings have eluded the global attention thanks to a sophisticated lobbying effort by the French Cameroun authorities and a deliberate silence from its subjects all over the world like those in the NBA.

21 = Joel Embiid, 43 = Pascal Siakam, 12 = Mbah A Moute

 Embiid, Siakam and A’ Moute, are enjoying the hospitality, freedom and opportunities that the Anglo-Saxon culture offer, but are unable to defend the rights of the minority Anglophones (anglo-saxon) in Cameroon. The statistics so far are chilling: More than 20,000 have been killed. About 1. 5 million are internally displaced, +75000 are registered as refugees in Nigeria. More than 400 villages have also been burnt by the French Cameroun soldiers, backed by imperialist France. The silence of these stars with such celebrity status is a sheer disregard of the lives of the minority English people of British Cameroon. Read their history here., as Black Africa’s First Democracy in the 50s.

Ngarbuh Failed to prick their Consciences

The latest massacre at Ngarbu in which more than 37 innocent civilians including 14 children and 8 women (some pregnant) were massacred, still saw these NBA stars staying mute, despite global outcry. Just like Embiid lashed out at Donald Trump for racism in the U.S and still enjoys his freedom, thousands of British Cameroonians (Anglophones) are in sacred bunker prisons in French Cameroun for criticizing the 87-year-old dictator. Others were maimed, killed, incarcerated in the worst conditions for peacefully demonstrating against their Discrimination (Racism if in the U.S), from the majority French Cameroun authorities from where Embiid, Siakam and A Moute originate. Just like racism in America that the NBA star railed against, the same scenario is playing out in Kamerun where the minority English-speaking people are discriminated from jobs, investments, appointments, language etc. While racism saw blacks being derogatorily called N…s in the US, thus lynching, the minority English-speaking people are called dogs, settlers, fools etc, by French Camerounians, thus justifying their sub-human nature, hence the killings. About 6000 were killed in 2019 alone.  (click here for videos and images).

Selective Attention

Even though Mbah a Moute runs a Foundation that helps people in his French section of Cameroun while their soldiers commit genocide in the English-speaking regions, he has failed to extend the foundation’s largess to the more than 1.5 million displaced by French Cameroun’s Atrocity Crimes. More than 2 million children in that part of Cameroun have not been to school now for more than 4 years. Apart from the destruction of health facilities, the soldiers have also been using rape as a weapon. Many women and children have been raped, some in broad daylight. It’s time for the NBA to question these stars’ hypocrisy.

17-year-old Breastfeeding Mother Raped in broad daylight by the Roadside by French Cameroun Soldiers

The conflict started in 2016, when citizens of this once independent country went on the streets (Like Black Americans did in the 60s) to seek a redress of structural discrimination, but were met with brute force. More than 120 were killed with live ammunition, including helicopter gun ships. Some were deliberately shot to maim, “ I will see how you will demonstrate again” One victim shot on the leg tells sympathizers at his hospital bed. The situation later degenerated into a full blown war, launched by Africa’s most brutal dictator, Paul Biya. The French Cameroun military proceeded to burning villages with their inhabitants. A global call for dialogue by foreign powers to tackle the root cause of the conflict has not been heeded to by the majority French Cameroun authorities, who believe in suppressing the freedom-aspiring British Southern Cameroonians.

Root Cause of the Genocide

The root cause of the war dates back to the 60s when these two independent territories/countries – French Cameroun under France and British Southern Cameroon, under the UK, were coerced by the UNO to come together in 1961 to form one federated country, with equal status. With abundant oil discovered in the shores of the British Southern Cameroons, the majority French Cameroun leaders abolished the terms of their union. A rigorous policy of assimilation was embarked on, seen through the imposition of the French language in schools, courts and administration in the region. A call by the citizens for a return to their initial terms of union was met with brutality, leading to what many today are calling a genocide. The conflict, although stems from a failed decolonization by the British authorities, is now an example of black on black colonization, to protect imperialist Europe’s economic interest. Russia, UK and France are owners of British Cameroon’s Gas and oil resources. As Security Council members,the genocide has been off the council’s deliberations.

Pascal Siakam Draped in the French Cameroun Flag at the NBA 2019 finals, while Genocide/ethnic cleansing persist in his Homeland

Luck Richard Mbah A Moute, worth about $15 million, was born in Biamesse in Bafia, near Yaounde, the Capital of French Cameroun. Joel Embiid, nicknamed the Process, worth about $35 Million, was also born in Yaounde. Pascal Siakam nicknamed Spicy, worth about $20 Million, was born in Douala, French Cameroun’s economic capital.While they enjoy the anglo-saxon culture in the west, back in Cameroun, the same culture is looked upon with disdain. Their silence on these Crimes Against Humanity against the minority English-speaking people, who like Blacks in America, were asking for nothing but equality, is no doubt a reflection of their character (and those of the entire French Cameroun), of regarding the Anglophones as sub-humans, hence their annihilation.

breaking news: BIYA EXPIRES AT LAST. After killing +20,000, British Cameroonians, Africa’s most brutal & oldest dictator, Paul Biya, Expires at 87.

After killing more than 20,000 innocent British Southern Cameroonians, Africa’s most brutal and oldest dictator Paul Biya expired at 87. The sanguinary Biya kicked the bucket on the 25th of March, 2020 in Mvomeka. Our insider further says the Lion man’s Mvomeka estate, where the remains are hidden has been busy like a beehive, as his tribesmen who control the economic, cultural and political life of the country, are plotting on ways to retain power. The source equally states that all the decrees said to have been signed by Biya, are meant at installing loyalists mostly from his Bulubeti clan to protect their next power grab. Prior to the decree appointing a security personnel, an earlier order had been dished out instructing non-movement of security personnel. The recent decrees were forged by Ferdinand Ngoh Ngoh and the wife of the dictator, Chantal Biya.

Africa’s strong man could to be with those he killed

He was 87 years old, and as president outlived four French Presidents, six UK Prime Ministers and Five U.S Presidents. The BBC and other Western Media outfits describe him as an absentee landlord, who governs from his Intercontinental Hotel suit in Geneva, Switzerland. The Wall Street Journal recently cautioned the world not to declare him missing until his entire floor at the hotel is searched. Here he and his about 50-man entourage spend an average of $40,000 a day on hotel bills alone, excluding other amenities.  His chartered round trip to Geneva and back to Yaoundé cost about $855,000. He is a product of French colonial rule in Africa and has maintained an iron fist in this Central African country with a checkered history unopposed for almost four decades. He is the continent’s second longest governing dictator, with 37 years as president, seven prior to that as Prime Minister, and a couple as minister. This “African Strongman’s” horrible human rights record is no secret to the world – arbitrary arrests and disappearances, army and police brutality, mass bunker prisons, jailing of journalists among other crimes. The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), ranks the country as the second in the world after Egypt in jailing journalists for false news charges.The U.S State Department’s 2017 human rights report on the country puts the abuses squarely on the frail 86-year-old Paul Biya who is the legislative, judiciary and executive head of Cameroun, ordering arrests and detentions at will. He equally controls every social and cultural life of the country including the Catholic Church, where prelates from his tribe have vehemently defended his ills.

While development has stagnated since 1982 when he took over power, his military has benefited from enormous latest western-style weapons and training. This support has elevated any uniform-wearing officer to the status of a demi-god. Biya’s name is branded by these arrogant officers as a license for gross human rights abuses with impunity. Nowhere are these crimes evident daily than the systematic annihilation of the minority English-speaking population that has got a short end of the stick from a union with the majority French-speaking country, since 1961. Here innocent civilians and their residences are razed by the soldiers with no remorse. just like Hitler called the Jews names to help in their extermination, Paul Biya and his killer squad started by calling the English-speaking people DOGS, and now secessionists or terrorists, thus justifying their extermination.

hitler n biya

As one of Cameroun’s oldest administrators, Paul Biya has participated and also presided over the massacre of all other ethnic groups in the country but his Beti/Bulu clan.

Biya and the French  presided over the annihilation of more than 100,000 Bamilekes and Bassas in the pre and post colonial era.“Cameroon’s independence from France was a bitter struggle,” Cameroonian editorialist Gabriel Mbarga told RFI recently. Nationalist unrest broke out at the end of France’s 10-year rule in 1955 and was brutally suppressed by French forces, leaving thousands dead. “It became very violent after the suspension of the UPC independence party and the assassination of its leader Ruben Um Nyobe on 13 September 1958,” Mbarga said. “Estimates of the death toll, still debated by many experts, range from 100,000- 400,000 people killed between 1959 and 1964. In the department of Sanaga Maritime, largely populated by the ethnic group named the Bamileke, 120,000 were killed in 1960 alone” Mbarga concluded. (Click here).

Although only about 1000 people were officially said to have been arrested and eventually sentenced to death by Biya, for a failed coup in 1984, living witnesses talk of a deathly purge of northerners by the dictator following the coup. Thousands are said to have been eliminated. Since then, Biya has been more brutal in his crack down even on legitimate opposition. in 2008 during legitimate demonstration against higher food prices and an attempt to change the constitution to enable him run as president again, Biya and his soldiers are said to have killed more than 100 civilians. The U.S Statement Department’s 2008 report was blunt on the dictator’s actions,“Security forces committed numerous unlawful killings. Security forces also engaged in torture, beatings, and other abuses, particularly of detainees and prisoners” (Click here).

Majority of people on the streets of Cameroun had long felt it was time for the frail and stone-hearted octogenarian to go, but the fear of incarceration and charges of sedition, terrorism, or other trump up charges, all punishable by the death penalty put a lid on these rumblings from imploding. Measured opposition on the internet is seriously monitored by the regime’s secret men who are everywhere.

“How can our prayers be answered in Zimbabwe?’’, a brave social media post by a frustrated Camerounian made the rounds, after another sit-tight octogenarian – Robert Mugabe was overthrown in November 19, 2017, by Mnangagwa. Other paranoid Cameroonian activists caricatured Mugabe with luggage on his head dragging a seemingly glued Biya behind. Despite these abuses which run afoul western values, the puzzling question has been; why has the dictator been able to stay in power for this long, when others with less human rights crimes such as Maduro of Venezuela are on the West’s chopping board?

Our dictator.

In addition to unfettered French intervention in FrenchCameroun’s affairs since 1959, as part of a pre-independence agreement, including deciding who rules, Biya has benefited enormously from Western and Chinese military assistance. According to the website Defenseweb, Biya’s arms suppliers include the United States, South Africa, Spain, Serbia, Russia, Israel and France. These countries have delivered weapons ranging from “armored vehicles, transport and combat helicopters, mortars, unmanned aerial vehicles and light and transport aircraft.” Most in the guise of fighting Islamic extremism. The U.S even maintains a drone base in the country and helps with training. Mr. Biya has not shied to direct these weapons against his citizens frustrated with his loathsome administration.

While some of these countries are known for their dismal human rights records, the silence of others like the U.S, Canada and Germany to well corroborated abuses have been stunning. An Amnesty international investigation in 2017, shows abuses at Fotokol and Salek military base in the Northern part of the country (Click here). The base at the time of the abuses had about 300 U.S personnel. Victims claim they saw white men in the window of their cells. Numerous evidences of families and children being massacred in the North (Click here), and rivers with corpses and mass graves in the English regions of the country have failed to muster western ire. Kudos to the Kingmaker – France that ensures the world looks elsewhere. While the old global order has largely insulated these abuses from a global audience thus a leeway for songbirds of human rights to conceal their double standards, digital media has provided no space for such spins. These crimes are easily and instantly put on the menu and dining tables of these global power-players like the UN and its member-states

Cameroon-US-military
US Military Training Biya’s Soldiers

Policymakers who have often reacted instantly to abuses in their own countries have remained indifferent to such gory images coming from their dictators such as Paul Biya of Cameroon. The UK for example despite agreeing that Paul Biya has committed crimes against humanity in the anglophone regions still signs a $1.5B oil and gas deal to be executed in the anglophone regions where the massacres and ethnic cleansing are taking place (Click here). Here a French Cameroun-appointed administrator on radio ordered villagers to leave or be “neutralized” – a word used by the dictator and his soldiers as they kill for fun in English-Cameroon.

While this western hypocrisy has fortified the position of these dictators thus increasing their appetite for more genocidal acts on their citizens, it has also eroded the credibility of organizations like the UN and countries like the US, UK, Germany etc, as leading global defenders of human rights. Even the U.S has overlooked its own laws by continuing to maintain military relations with Mr. Biya despite the Leahy Law that forbids assistance to any country with questionable human rights records. In the midst of what the U.S Ambassador to Cameroon Mr. Henry Balerin calls “targeted killings” of anglophones, the U.S still donated military aircrafts to the dictator.

US amb nplane

It is estimated that Mr. Biya killed more than 20000 innocent civilians in the English-speaking regions of the country who are demanding for a safeguard of their rights in the union which they voted to belong as co-equals in 1961. More than 500,000 are internally displaced with another 50,000 as refugees in Nigeria (Click here). While these evidences equal or supersede the same crimes, the U.S and the West are advancing as reason to depose Maduro of Venezuela, who has been in power for just six years, the West’s darling dictator remains steadfast in his abuses including jailing political dissenters. The 86-year-old dictator’s desire to ethnically cleans any community that opposes him are articulated even by some of his ministers who believe such actions is justified. For Biya’s Justice Minister, Momo Jean de Dieu, annihilating any Camerounian who opposes Biya will be justified just like Hitler’s massacre of 6 million “industrious and arrogant Jews”, who posed a threat to him and Germany (Click here). As one Cameroon activists puts it, “It’s hypocritical for the Israeli Ambassador to Cameroun to be outrage and demands an apology over Jews and holocaust comments, when the actual holocaust is happening with the Anglophones  in Cameroon”.

Rigged Elections with Bogus Election Observers

Since Mr. Biya willy-nilly accepted multiparty politics in 1990, he and his ruling Cameroun People’s Democratic Movement (CPDM) continue to choke with victory constipation at all elections while all contenders cry foul. To embellish his image globally, the old fox has embarked on lobbying and fake election observers. In 2005, while election observers such as former Canadian PM, the Roman Catholic Church under Cardinal Christian Tumi, characterized Biya’s 71% victory as “surrounded by fraud like previous ones”, the dictator was up with a big bounty for fake election observers from the US. Biya picked up the tab of $80,000 for an Association of Former Members of the U.S Congress headed by a Biya lobbyist at the time, Ronnie Shows. The association despite global assessment of a fraud election, endorsed the outcome claiming: “This is what democracy is about.” A month after, one of the six-members of the delegation signed a new lobbying contract with the dictator to feed global opinion about the democratic strides being undertaken.

fake election observers

Sticking to his old playbook, the octogenarian and cronies produced the same script in 2018. However, new technology was not on their side. With gross apathy and verifiable election rigging, Mr. Biya this time hired some fraudsters from the U.S ranging from farmers in Ohio to a Jewish activists/Journalist in the name of Nurit Greenger, claiming to be representing Transparency International (Click here). A claim debunked by Transparency International. When questioned on social media for the gross deception, the group’s leader was unapologetic and offensive, blocking anybody on social media who challenges their action on the Cameroun election. The state’s propaganda media houses that lied to the country about the independence of the observers have maintained sealed lips on the scam. Despite these documented anti-democratic tactics to cling unto power at all cost, the “democratic” West have stood by the old dictator failing even to formally condemn these totalitarian actions that have deprived the country of some of its citizens and meaningful progress. Mr. Biya until his passing was more focused on quashing dissent than the well-being of the repressed population. As one French Cameroun blogger puts it, “Putting pressure on Maduro to resign while, coaxing with dictator Biya is bad for western values”.

british s. Cameroon genocide: health personnel massacred by french cameroun before covid-19

From every nook and cranny of the British Southern Cameroon in the past four years, the French-Cameroun Bulubeti Militia’s cruelty is beyond the pale of hitherto genocidal boundaries. While a section of Biya’s militias target locals and their properties, another hit squad is bent on depriving other civilians who might have a chance of survival by targeting health facilities and personnel. Ngamsha Gilbert, was a nurse from the village of Oku who bikes the 25km journey daily to Kumbo, for work. This journey ended on the 29th of January 2019, when French Cameroun’s appointed Governor, Lele Afrique’s militias shot him point blank. His fresh, clean and lifeless body was not enough for the militias/soldiers. A bomb was lazed in his body as the soldiers covered their ears for an explosion that shattered Gilbert’s body into chunks

Some Killed Nurses by French Cameroun Soldiers

Fomonyuy Ornella, a pregnant 19-year-old nurse from Kumbo, is now part of the statistics of killed health personnel. Her January 18, 2019, gruesome killing and that of her unborn baby failed to deter the sanguinary Governor Lele Afrique. Prior to Mbuh Priscilia and her colleague’s massacre at the  Mbingo Baptist Hospital on April 1, 2019, she and her colleagues were in emergency mode two weeks prior assisting the same French Cameroun Bulubeti militias, said to have been attacked by the rag-tag Ambazonia guerillas operating in the municipality. Little did she know that her life shall be sniffed out by those they worked professionally to save. Priscilia and three of her colleagues were mangled by Lele Afrique’s marauding Militias, who attacked the hospital under Lele Afrique’s instructions.

The Story of 24-year-old Carine

24-year-Carine, a nurse pleaded for the soldiers to spare her life, but they did not. She had made the mistake of accepting her British Southern Cameroonian heritage, when the marauding soldiers stormed her house July 5th, 2019, in Mankon, Bamenda. “They asked us, if we were anglophones” the sister of the late Carine told sympathizers from her hospital bed. Carine joins a long list of medical personnel killed by the American-trained French Cameroun Bulu/Beti Militias under 87-year-old frail Paul Biya.

The Story of the Pregnant Nurse and Husband BLINDFOLDED and Shot

The Story of Njong Patrick and Azah Nancy, killed at Tad, Nyen near Mbengwi in Momo Division in August 2018 remains fresh. Both were blindfolded and shot at close range.”The couple, both heading health units in Kob and Nja Etu were returning from work on board their motor bike when military stopped them on the way. Njong Patrick and Azah Nancy had their eyes blindfolded before receiving several bullets at close range according to witness account.Their corpses were only discovered later abandoned under plantains beside the bush. The deceased couple leaves behind five children. Surrounding residents confirmed that they were shot by military who accused them of treating Ambazonia fighters”. (More). The destruction continues till date. No hospital is spared. Muyuka District hospital was destroyed as well on 31st March, 2019. (see Video). Prior to the Muyuka hospital destruction, on 11 of February, 2019, the French Cameroun military set the Kumba General Hospital on fire. Four civilians were killed. To show the love they have for their French Cameroun brothers, a motor bike belonging to one French Cameroun personnel was removed before setting that portion of the hospital on fire. (See video)
