The month was brutal as usual with abundant War Crimes, enough to again display to the world. From Malende in the farming town of Muyuka, through Bome Bakundu to Mbot in the Northern part of the British Cameroun, the French Cameroun Bulubeti Militias/soldiers were competing for the highest killer prize of the innocent citizens of English Cameroon. In Muyuka, the soldiers invaded villagers in their makeshift homes in the forest killing and burning them and their shacks, with their cocoa as well. The same soldiers again arrested more innocent civilians (bike riders) in the village of Mbot in Northern Zone of the territory and transported them to a field where they were publicly-executed on 4 November, 2019, around 11:00 Am, as evidenced by the military photographer’s shots. As is typical of the soldiers they tried to justify their War Crimes by tagging the bodies with local farming tools. Apart from the silence of the international Community, this month alone, French War ships are reported to have docked in the waters of French Cameroun. The result was more military assistance to the sanguinary regime of Paul Biya. British Cameroon, it should be reminded voluntarily joined French Cameroun in 1961, as an autonomous entity.
While some morsel of condemnation has mostly come from the United States, the French and British have remained mute on the Atrocity Crimes on the people. The killings this month add to the casualty rate of the conflict that has claimed more than 15000 lives. Human Rights organizations have largely shied away from the Atrocity Crimes, issuing ill-informed releases on the conflict. Others that have attempted to visit the conflict region have been refused by French Cameroun. Sadly, some of these organizations have gone ahead to issue casualty figures, thus begging the question of when did they visit the conflict region, where more than 2 million children are out of school, with about a million internally-displaced. The need for a War Crimes Tribunal, independent investigation and a Peacekeeping Mission to the territory is long overdue. History of the two Trust Territories of the Kameruns are very clear in all global archives. British Cameroon got her independence in 1961, and French Cameroun in 1960. The two countries later came together in 1961 as two autonomous regions. French Cameroun later dissolved the status of the minority English people leading to the current conflict. The motivation being the rich oil reserves of the British Territory.
Below are some of the bodies of the more than 238 killed by French Cameroun soldiers, the villages burnt in their scorched-earth strategy. Included also is the refusal of consent by the people of British Cameroon to French Cameroun’s appointed administrators.
