The Ambazonian Communications Secretary, Hon. Chris Anu has called for unity as factions within the other Southern Cameroons liberation movements become increasingly dangerous to the ongoing Southern Cameroons revolution. Chris Anu in an audio message made public today Tuesday the 14th of August 2018 said the Interim Government has gotten intelligence that the Biya Francophone Beti Ewondo regime no longer believes in a military solution to the crisis in Southern Cameroons.
Chris Anu revealed that rampant political corruption in the French Cameroun army and failed economic reforms is slowly but surely pushing Ambazonian restoration forces to victory. The Ambazonian Interim Government spokesman also did announce that the time for unity has come and that Southern Cameroons front line leaders must rid themselves of factionalism.
We do not want a divided Federal Republic of Ambazonia, Chris Anu told Southern Cameroonians as he announced the unity conference to be hosted in Washington DC. Chris Anu balanced the priorities of all the Southern Cameroons liberation movements within the Interim Government, reiterating the Interim Government’s commitment to My Trip To Buea. Though the Southern Cameroons Interim Government supports unity, our senior political man, Soter Tarh Agbaw-Ebai says that unity will not be gotten at the expense of the people’s revolution.
A cross section of Ambazonians has become increasingly disillusioned with a raft of political division and poor management of the revolution by the Diaspora. Many analysts say the 2018 presidential election in French Cameroun will provide a good opportunity for the international community to come to the rescue of Southern Cameroonians.
Over 2,000 people have been killed and 170 villages burned in English-speaking regions of Cameroon which has halted some Bible translation efforts, a Christian leader has warned. Violence has escalated in Cameroon’s Anglophone regions in the last 18 months, with reports of French-speaking state forces launching a string of random attacks, kidnappings, and rapes against English-speaking residents and their villages in Western Cameroon.
After English-speaking residents in the Northwest and Southwest regions protested in October 2016 demanding autonomy because they feel underrepresented in the government, violence in those communities escalated throughout 2017.
Last month, the United Nations expressed concern that the violence against those communities has only “worsened considerably” since 2017 as there have been multiple reports of detention, torture, burning down of homes and excessive use of force by state forces.
