Brasseries du Cameroun and its subsidiaries are donating huge sums of money to support the Biya Francophone government in its genocidal war currently going on in the Federal Republic of Ambazonia/Southern Cameroons, Cameroon Intelligence Report has learned. The senior managers of Brasseries have also personally made financial donations to the French Cameroun army via the ministry of defense worth millions of FCFA.
The Brasseries du Cameroun donations comes at a time when Cameroon government forces were violently attacking Southern Cameroons towns and villages and have eventually forced more than 40,000 men, women and children to flee into neighboring Nigeria. The United Nations also reported recently that some 160,000 Southern Cameroonians have been displaced internally.
The Interim Government of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia with the support of human rights group has documented numerous crimes against humanity amid the violence, which included killings, rapes, torture, village burning and forced starvation tactics.
Brasseries du Cameroun’s first donation was handed over to the Minister Delegate in-Charge of Defense, Joseph Beti Assomo in the presence of the Cameroon army chief, General Rene Meka. We understand that these donations are funding the operations of military units involved in crimes against humanity in Southern Cameroons. To be sure, Brasseries du Cameroun and other brewery companies with headquarters in French Cameroun have endorsed the Biya war against the people of Southern Cameroons.
By donating to the military jointly and severally, Brasseries by extrapolation has worsening the human rights situation in Southern Cameroons. Cameroon Concord News Group is calling for a boycott of all Brasseries products in Southern Cameroons. We also call on Acting President Dr. Ikome Sako to ban the sale of Brasseries du Cameroun products in Ambazonia.
