“The Exit Door to the Southern Cameroons Political Crisis is not in East Cameroun” 1

The Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium has rejected the fake policy of appeasement presented by the Biya Francophone regime and has announced the intensification of the civil disobedience campaign if the detained leaders and the hundreds of Southern Cameroon youths arrested are not freed.

Inside sources within the Consortium hinted Cameroon Concord News that the exit door to the Southern Cameroons political crisis is not in East Cameroun. Recently, a gang of Francophone cabinet members headed by the Minister of Justice, Laurent Esso in a scantily attended press conference made public measures which they claimed had been taken by the 84 year-old Francophone dictator, Paul Biya to address the concerns of Southern Cameroon lawyers.

The Francophone ministers said the decision included the creation of a Commission to accelerate the promotion of bilingualism and multiculturalism, the publication of the English version by OHADA of its treaty and other texts, the creation of a Common Law Section at the Supreme Court which will hold its sessions in English in accordance with the Common Law and handle all cases from the Courts of ‘Appeal in the Anglophone regions, the creation of a Common Law Section at ENAM and the creation of the departments of English Law in the Universities of Douala, Maroua, Ngaoundere and Dschang. Biya as Head of State has not committed to any of the above stipulations.

The Biya Francophone regime has also been making a mockery of the General Certificate of Education, GCE, by postponing the deadline for enrollment in the examinations. The Francophone ministers responsible for Secondary and Basic Education have been regularly announcing funny adjustments in the Southern Cameroons school calendar.

Biya and his French speaking political elites are still trading with the idea of federalism which is no longer a demand of the Consortium.  The Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium has reached a point of no return and have grafted the immediate and unconditional release of their leaders whose trial is held at the Yaoundé military tribunal.

Barrister Nkongho Felix Agbor Balla and Dr. Fontem Afortekaa Neba, the leaders of the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium, abbreviated CACSC, whose trial opened on February 13 at the Yaoundé military court, are prosecuted for acts of terrorism, hostility against the fatherland, secession, revolution, insurrection, outrage to the 84 year old evil butcher of Yaoundé, insult to organized bodies and civil servants, group rebellion, civil war and propagation of false news.

The regime in Yaoundé has told the world that the detained leaders of the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium risk the death penalty if they are convicted of acts of terrorism in accordance with article 2 of Law No. 2014/028 of 23 December 2014 on the punishment of acts of terrorism. Yet, day by day, the Francophone leadership keeps accepting what the Consortium and the detained leaders had earlier said. Ghost towns will continue, schools will remain closed and an economic embargo will be placed soon on Francophone businesses operating in Southern Cameroons.
