British S.Cameroon Genocide: +241 Killed in October 2019 by France and French Cameroun Soldiers.

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.

The Map of the Evolution of Kamerun

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.

Africa’s Most Brutal Dictator Snubs Trump.

Symbolic half-measures like revoking preferential trade status are not enough to force the repressive regime of Paul Biya to change. Canceling IMF loans and military aid would show that the White House is serious“. These were the opening words from Foreignpolicy.com following President Donald Trump’s poignant letter, last 30th October, 2019, to Congress on his intention to end Cameroun’s trade privileges with the U.S under the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) in 2020. Trump’s letter was clear that “Cameroun has failed to address concerns regarding persistent human rights violations being committed by Cameroon security forces,”. These human rights concerns are not new since the crisis in the former British Southern Cameroon (Ambazonia) began in 2016. The U.S’s own Ambassador to Cameroun, Mr. Henry Balerin, fell short of calling the Atrocity Crimes, Ethnic Cleansing. He called it “Targeted Killing” of Anglophones. These Atrocity Crimes which are placed daily on the table of Global Decision Makers/diplomats (through tweets etc) and now documented on the website ambazoniagenocidelibrary.com have received less focus, despite UNICEF and Jan Egeland of the Norwegian Refugee Council calling it the most neglected, worst Humanitarian Crisis in the world. The Crimes by the Cameroun soldiers armed mostly by France include the burning of more than 9200 villages (here captured by the BBC). More than 14,500 people killed, with almost 1.5 internally displaced. An additional 2 million are out of school, and more than 75,000 as refugees in Nigeria.

Mocking President Trump

The ink had barely dried on President Trump’s letter when the government of Africa’s most brutal and second longest-serving ruler, Paul Biya, fired back. Authorities from the Cameroun Government claim the country barely benefits from AGOA, thus making a mockery of the U.S Government action. This treatment of the U.S by Paul Biya, is not new. The U.S Ambassador was openly threatened to shut up, or be sent back in a casket by regime loyalists, following his condemnation of the killings in the English Region/British Cameroon. Just as the Trump Administration in 2018 withdrew the U.S from the UN Human Rights Council citing slanted resolutions, the body admitted Cameroun as one of the members in January 2019. This admission follows the U.S Government’s curtailing of military assistance to the country due to Human Rights concerns.

“Biya can say anything to the U.S, as long as the U.S, pad him with ineffective actions, despite the overwhelming evidence of genocide”, a clergy man tells us. “Their citizen was killed and Trump never commented, even the ambassador to the country. Why shouldn’t Biya, be above international laws?” The prelate continues. “The first thing the U.S can do right now is to give an ultimatum for an unfettered investigation into the crimes in the British-Cameroon” the man-of-God pleaded.

Is President Trump Going to Allow another Genocide in Africa like Bill Clinton in 1994?

Words alone were not enough. Less than a week following the letter, the fugitive authorities committed more Human Rights abuses in the Anglophone Regions (British Southern Cameroons), thus daring the US, as depicted by the images below. About 89 people were executed and burnt alive by the same security forces that the letter from the U.S government mentioned. In a farming community called Muyuka, the soldiers invaded villagers in their makeshift homes in the forest killing and burning their shacks as well. (Click image to enlarge).

More WAR CRIMES with Evidence Tempering

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 actions by tagging the bodies with local farming tools. Below are the images of the prepared corpses from the Cameroun military.

Independent Investigation and More Robust Sanctions Needed

According to estimates by the leadership of the Anglophone movement in the diaspora, more than 15,000 people have been killed in the Anglophone regions alone (click here to count). These figures are more than the paltry number put out by external organizations that have been refused access to the conflict region. As the prelate pleads, a robust independent investigation is needed. Biya has vehemently refused access to the British Cameroons from independent journalists from the Washington Post and other reputable organizations even the UN, preferring French-sponsored media who fly with the military to interview regime sources.

According to foreign policy, AGOA exclusion alone wouldn’t deter the Biya regime. The Trump Administration in order to resolve the conflict they insist should “curtail all military assistance, imposes targeted travel and economic sanctions on individuals, and uses its considerable leverage to punish the Biya regime through international financial institutions and at the United Nations”. The greatest defender of the sanguinary French Cameroun government has been António Guterres and France with its military equipment. Of late, French soldiers have been spotted in palm plantations in English-Cameroon (Ambazonia), alongside the soldiers President Trump accuses of gross human rights abuses. This assistance and defense of the Atrocity Crimes at the UN by France and Francophonie has strengthened the regime of 86-year-old Paul Biya, to not only snub the U.S government, but other world authorities that have called for an inclusive dialogue to end the conflict.

Trump’s Rwanda?

The US government must act boldly to halt this ethnic cleansing of the minority English-speaking people of British Cameroon, who went on the streets to demand just constitutional changes to the system in the country that treated them as a captured people, with no rights. The crisis if not resolved risked tainting President Trump’s Presidency as was Rwanda in 1994, when Bill Clinton failed to act on the evidence presented to him at the time, only to regret when more than 800,000 had lost their lives. It should be noted that the people of English Cameroon voted in 1961 to join the French Cameroun, as two equal states, not as a special status. The French Cameroun (La Republique du Cameroun) achieved her independence in 1960.

British S. Cameroon Genocide: What if he were Dion Ngute’s Son? Time for “Benevolent Neutrality” is Now.

To all British S.Cameroonian politicians Beyond the Moungo.

Under the Eastern Region, British Southern Cameroon suffered what was known as the Ibo domination. The Ibo established their hegemony over Southern Cameroons and caused them to be further frustrated by foreign domination. However, it was during this period that the first parliamentary elections were organised in the territory to choose representatives to the Eastern Regional House of Assembly and Federal House in Lagos. Following discrimination they faced as a minority group in the assembly, they walked out in protest and declared Benevolent Neutrality in Nigerian politics. This led to the holding of the first Southern Cameroons Conference in Mamfe in 1953. This Conference adopted a petition addressed to the United Kingdom Government that demanded for a separate regional status in conformity with Southern Cameroons’ status as a UN Trust territory. It was from here that Southern Cameroons nationalism began. This political action yielded the desired results. In 1954, Southern Cameroons achieved self-governing status, with Dr. EML Endeley as first Premier. Read more here.

These achievements and self-rule were achieved without any villages torched with occupants, thousands killed and the bodies burnt, women and children raped in broad daylight. Worst of it, being labelled dogs and a different language imposed on you. Living witnesses of this history such as Nfon Mukete, Achidi Achu, Fon Angwafor, Dorothy Njeuma, John Fru Ndi, etc should be able to compare the fact that the scare of the Ibos cannot be compared with this genocide from French Cameroon. Which representative in a true democracy sits mum when his/her constituents are killed, maimed, homes destroyed, children raped, places of worship desecrated? How do you go back to them for votes? Worst of all is how do you sit in the pews and ask for God’s blessings?

What if this killed and dumped body in Ekona by French Cameroun Soldiers was Mr. Dion Ngute’s son?

What is this constituent’s crime to be killed and abandoned like this? What if this human turns out to be Prime Minister Dion Ngute’s son? Would he praise the military for a job well done? AJL will never get an answer, cause such answer will not resurrect the more than 12,000 killed or more than 9000 homes razed. Neither is your wealth able to absolve this pain that British Southern Cameroonians are going through since Akum Julius was shot in November 2016.

Isn’t it time to walk back across the Moungo like the Angwafor’s and Mukete’s did in 1953? Why must the union be built with your peoples’ blood? Why is French Cameroun not fighting to regain the portions of Kamerun ceded to Chad, Central African Republic, Congo and Gabon in 1919? The answer is simple: those portions are part of the Francophonie and so the British Southern Cameroon and its language and values must be replaced. Chief Nfon Mukete , Achidi Achu, Enoh Tanjong, Fon Angwafor, as the oldest living architects of unification, it is time to walk back to your people NOW and be HEROES. The UNION experiment has failed and the blood of your people can’t glue it back together again.

Cameroun’s PM, Mr. Dion Ngute

Mr. Dion Ngute is Cameroun’s ceremonial Prime Minister since January 2019. Constitutionally he is irrelevant in Cameroun’s succession or power arrangement. He however remains the most senior member of English Cameroon extraction in the predominantly French Cameroun government of the Republic of Cameroun. The post of Prime Minister in Cameroun has often been seen more as a PR stunt to goad English speakers than one with a real portfolio. Although he is often called the head of Government, he has never formed a government. Most often he is appointed simultaneously with the government he is rhetorically to lead. Lead functions domestically include galvanizing the remnants of the disillusioned population to sing the praises of the now 86-year-old frail Paul Biya, who has governed Cameroun since 1982.
