France and French speaking African diplomats covering up French Cameroun war crimes in Southern Cameroons 0
The French government and diplomats from French speaking African countries have for more than two years been covering up war crimes committed by the Biya Francophone Beti Ewondo regime in Southern Cameroons. The United Nations, Amnesty International and the International Crisis Group have all made public evidence of genocide in Southern Cameroons via investigative work carried out by their experts and representatives.
Yaoundé launched a war on Southern Cameroons in an attempt to crush the Anglophone uprising and quest for an independent state. The Interim Government of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia said recently that the African Union and the UN Office have failed to provide credible, impartial, and transparent report to the UN Security Council on the war violations and war crimes committed by French Cameroun soldiers in Southern Cameroons.
The France-Afrique diplomats represented by the current Chairperson of the African Union, Chad’s Moussa Faki have always concluded that the Southern Cameroons war is an internal affair and that the killings of more than 2000 Southern Camroons civilians were unintentional outcomes of legitimate military operations. A senior aide to Acting President Ikome Sako was quoted as saying that the African Union and CEMAC countries were doing little more than covering up war crimes.
Some 2000 Southern Cameroons civilians, mostly women and children have been killed ever since the 85 year old French Cameroun dictator declared war on Southern Cameroons. The Ambazonian Interim Government has warned countries selling arms to French Cameroun, including the French government of President Macron that they are being complicit in serious violations in Southern Cameroons.
The President Macron administration faces increasing pressure even at home for its support for the French Cameroun dictator, President Paul Biya. France with the support of the President Buhari administration in Abuja has been supplying the Biya Francophone regime with advanced arms and intelligence sharing.
More than half a million Southern Cameroonians have been displaced by the conflict and thousands more injured since the onset of the French Cameroun invasion.
