US Diplomat Decries Abandonment of Ambazonia, Urges Anglophone Support,

Published

on

US Diplomat Tibor Nagy

Tibor Nagy, a former US Assistant Secretary of State for Africa and long-term US diplomat, has recently expressed his concern over the abandonment of Ambazonia by England and Anglophone countries. In a tweet posted on a micro blogging platform, Nagy argued that if the situation in Ambazonia were reversed, and a majority Anglophone government was brutalizing a Francophone population, France would not hesitate to support the Francophones.

Ambazonia, also known as Southern Cameroon, is a region that has been facing a crisis for several years. The conflict in Ambazonia stems from the marginalization and neglect of the Anglophone minority by the Francophone majority in Cameroon. This has led to calls for independence from the Anglophone community, and the situation has escalated into a full-blown conflict, with reports of human rights violations and atrocities being committed by both sides.

Nagy, who has served as the US Ambassador to Guinea and Ethiopia, as well as a Professor Emeritus at Texas Tech University, believes that the lack of support from Anglophone countries for the Ambazonian people is a major problem. He argued that if the situation were reversed, and a Francophone country was brutalizing an Anglophone population, France would not sit idly by and watch. This, according to Nagy, is a clear indication of the double standards that exist in the international community when it comes to supporting marginalized communities.

Nagy’s tweet has sparked a heated debate on social media, with many people agreeing with his argument and others disagreeing. Some people have pointed out that the situation in Ambazonia is not as simple as Nagy has portrayed it, and that there are many complex factors involved that cannot be ignored.

Regardless of the differing opinions, Nagy’s tweet highlights the need for the international community to pay more attention to the crisis in Ambazonia and to provide more support for the Ambazonian people. The situation in Ambazonia is a clear example of how neglect and marginalization can escalate into a full-blown conflict, and it is the responsibility of the international community to prevent this from happening.

In conclusion, Nagy’s tweet serves as a wake-up call for Anglophone countries to pay more attention to the crisis in Ambazonia and to provide more support for the Ambazonian people. The international community must not sit idly by and watch as a marginalized community is brutalized, and it is time for Anglophone countries to take action and to support the Ambazonian people in their struggle for justice and equality.

Ambazonia – Cameroon’s denial of Canadian mediation criticized

Published

on

Tibor Nagy, a former US Assistant Secretary of State for Africa and a long-term US diplomat, has expressed his disappointment at the government of Cameroon’s denial of authorizing Canadian mediation in the Ambazonia crisis. In a tweet, Nagy wrote that the denial shows a split in the Biya regime and indicates that both sides are positioning for a post-Biya government.

Nagy’s statement comes amid growing concerns about the ongoing conflict in the Ambazonia region of Cameroon, which has resulted in widespread human rights abuses, displacement, and political unrest. The conflict, which began in 2016, has been fueled by decades of marginalization and neglect of the English-speaking regions of the country by the predominantly French-speaking government in Yaoundé.

As a seasoned diplomat with years of experience in African affairs, Nagy is well-acquainted with the complexities of the Cameroonian conflict. His statement reflects the views of many observers who believe that the government’s denial of Canadian mediation is a disappointing and concerning development in the ongoing crisis.

The denial of Canadian mediation is particularly significant because it demonstrates the government’s unwillingness to engage in a constructive and meaningful dialogue with the people of Ambazonia. It also indicates that the government is not interested in finding a peaceful resolution to the conflict and is instead opting for a more confrontational approach.

Nagy’s statement also highlights the importance of international pressure in bringing about change in Cameroon. He suggests that without significant pressure, the regime is unlikely to make any voluntary changes. This highlights the crucial role that international actors can play in promoting peace and stability in the region.

In conclusion, Nagy’s statement serves as a wake-up call for the international community to pay closer attention to the Ambazonia crisis and to take action to support the people of the region. As a former US diplomat, Nagy’s perspective carries weight and serves as a powerful reminder of the need for the international community to take a more proactive role in addressing the ongoing conflict in Cameroon.

Cameroon – Ambazonia Silent War May Escalate -JIHA

Dead bodies of Ambazonians killed by Cameroon soldiers

The Anglophone crisis in Cameroon is one of Africa’s newest struggles for liberation. The crisis emerged from legal and education grievances in 2016 and rapidly escalated into a secessionist political conflict that is threatening the unity of the country, with the potential to degenerate into a complex emergency. The crisis has been intensifying and has raised concerns about the potential for it to evolve into a “Complex Disaster Emergency” (CDE) in the Anglophone regions of Cameroon.

In an exploratory, qualitative, analytical, and descriptive case study research tradition involving document/content analysis, the Robert Strauss Centre’s complex emergency framework was applied to investigate the potential of the Anglophone crisis. The research found that 72.5% of the variables in all the complex emergencies fall within the relevant to extremely relevant ranking criteria. Furthermore, the establishment of a nexus between the Anglophone crisis and a natural hazard-induced disaster suggest an escalation of the crisis to an unbearable level.

The Anglophone crisis has been compounded by the high probability of a novel eruption at Mt. Cameroon coupled with the eminent threat of the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This further heightens the potential for the crisis to cumulatively evolve into a CDE in the Anglophone regions of Cameroon. The existential challenges in providing humanitarian assistance in the conflict region are immense, and by applying the Robert Strauss Centre’s complex emergency framework, this article concludes with an early warning for an impending CDE that could heighten humanitarian challenges unless there is foresight and goodwill by relevant actors to immediately commence a process of adequate contingency planning.

Paul Biya and Ambazonia map

Ambazonia, a separatist movement in southern Cameroon, has announced its acceptance of negotiations with Cameroon as part of a peace process. This development was made known in a statement posted online, which was well-received by the international community.

The United Nations was reportedly present during the four-month pre-talks held in Canada, which were aimed at laying the groundwork for the upcoming negotiations. Twitter user Mark Bareta wrote that it is time for all parties involved to unite around the peace process and move towards a resolution of the conflict.

Additionally, religious leaders from southern Cameroon have publicly endorsed the peace process and the role of Foreign Policy Canada in championing a peaceful resolution to the conflict. Unfortunately, Cameroon and its president, Paul Biya, have reportedly declined to participate in the mediation process.

Despite this setback, Ambazonia is said to be continuing to stand strong and is committed to finding a peaceful resolution to the conflict through the negotiation process. The international community is encouraged by this development and is hopeful that the talks will lead to a peaceful resolution for all parties involved.

Cameroon – Anglophone Crisis In Schools In North West And South West Synod Clerk Intervenes

Published

The Synod Clerk of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon, PCC, Rev Babila Fochang says that the Church as a body is not playing games with future of children nor can tell lies in the face of crisis rocking the two English speaking regions.

The Reverend Gentleman in one of his daily meditation says the only means to be free is to worship and believe in God

Rev Fochang wrote:

The Anglophone churches in Cameroon have been under serious attack with some Anglophone members of government daring to say that the churches are playing Pontus Pilate! Some church leaders are under surveillance with threats of arrests while pastors are threatened to say that all is well.

Now that media houses have been threatened that they will be shut down if they mention anything concerning what is going on, the prophetic voices remains the only outlet of truth.

Today we are reminded of the threat on Jeremiah’s life because he prophesied the word of the Lord just as the Lord asked him to.

The message was that if the people fail to listen to God’s prophets and do what God wants, he was going to rain disaster upon the city. As it is, instead of heeding the prophet and turn to the Lord, it was the regular priests and prophets who led the people to sieze Jeremiah, saying, “You must die!…”

The officials of state then positioned themselves at the entrance of God’s house and it was prophets and priests who said, “This man must be sentenced to death because he had prophesied against this city…” Enemies in the house!

Jeremiah told them he had only spoken what he was asked to by the Lord. Like Jeremiah the true prophetic voice can only say, “…Now reform your ways and your actions and obey the Lord your God… As for me, I am in your hands, do with me whatever you think is good and right.

Be assured, however, that if you put me to death, you will bring the guilt of innocent blood on yourselves and on this city, and on those who live in it, for in truth the Lord has sent me to you to speak all these words in your hearing…” (26: 1-16). My people, history is proof that killing of prophets and human rights activists have never been the solution to suppress truth! Let us face issues and deal with them upfront! Arrests, torture, high handedness and threats to life won’t solve our problems!

Cameroon: UN and the struggle for th restoration of Southern Cameroon

Yaoundé and its agents to dismiss the legitimacy and legality of the SCNC struggle to restore the statehood of British Southern Cameroons and to forever keep the latter as its footstool, have done everything possible to distort the history of a former UN Trust

Published

on

territory with clearly defined and demarcated international boundaries. With impunity some even question dismissively if British Southern Cameroons ever stood on its own feet as if their la Republique du Cameroun has ever. This is in the true nature of an imperial state. But truth is infinite. And those who fight in defense of truth are makers of progressive history and promoters of a better humanity. They are ever winners. For your clear understanding we will briefly examine this topic under the following sub heads; 1) UN Resolution 1608 of April 21, 1961, its import and what it stood to guard against. 2) Implication of no implementation of this UN Resolution. 3) The political and constitutional status of British Southern Cameroons at the material time of 1961. UN Resolution 1608 XV of April 21, 1961 was adopted by the UN General Assembly as a follow up of the successful conduct of the UN sponsored plebiscite in British Southern Cameroons. It was in recognition and defense of the distinctive identity of this UN Trust territory under international law. As a follow up of the UN plebiscite it was part and parcel of the UN conducted plebiscite. It was a legal instrument by the World Body meant to complete the exercise or experiment of bringing two distinct UN trust territories into a federal of equal status. This UNGA Resolution above everything else testifies to the irrefutable fact that the plebiscite, its shortcoming of limiting the people only to two choices notwithstanding, was inconclusive. It offered the British Southern Cameroonians only an opportunity to indicate their choice between Nigeria, and la Republique du Cameroun. The plebiscite vote was only a promise to be translated into a concrete act through mutual agreements based on fair negotiations. It is instructive to note that for this Resolution to pass the test tube of democracy, 64 Nations voted FOR, 23 AGAINST, and 10 Abstained. La Republique du Cameroun, supported by France and French-speaking Africa, except Mali mindful of its hidden agenda of annexing this UN Trust territory, voted against. By voting against, they still exercised their democratic rights. If la Republique du Cameroun voted against this important UN Resolution, which “unification” or “reunification” do they talk about today? Why did la Republique reject forming a federal of two equal states with British Southern Cameroons? Was it not because of their hidden agenda of annexation, colonial occupation and assimilation which they have faithfully implemented? Inherent in this UN Resolution was the promotion of the democratic principle of dialogue, equality of states, big and small, and the promotion of international cooperation to build world peace based on justice. This UN Resolution in concrete terms stood out to guard against any manner of annexation, assimilation, imperial domination of smaller states by the big and powerful states. To ensure that it was through consensus agreement and in fulfillment of the UN Charter, negotiations were not left in the hands of the concerned parties, namely, British Southern Cameroons, and la Republique du Cameroun, the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland as the Administering Authority of British Southern Cameroons was included. Without doubt since at the time British Southern Cameroons was not a distinct UN Member state, it was the UK as the Administering Authority that was to report the outcome of negotiations to the UNGA. Indeed, it was the UK that had the political and constitutional duty of submitting the Agreement, in other words, the Treaty of to the UN General Secretariat in fulfillment of Art. 102 of the UN Charter. For reasons unknown to the leaders and people of British Southern Cameroons this all important UN Resolution was never implemented. The UK never gave a report to the UN on the implementation of Resolution 1608. This implies that conditions for the formation of the UN envisioned federal of two distinct UN Trust territories to form the FEDERAL UNITED CAMEROON REPUBLIC of two equal states were not fulfilled. It is equally important we understand that in conformity with the spirit and letter of this UNGA Resolution, there could never have been a formed with the two distinct trust territories, without it being a federation of two states “EQUAL IN STATUS”. At the material time British Southern Cameroons was a self-governing trust territory founded on Westminster parliamentary democracy. In October 1960 it adopted its own constitution to usher it to independence. It had been declared ripe for independence by the UK Representative to the UN and by Commissioner J.O Field in his speech in 1958 during the Centenary celebration of the founding of the seaport town of Victoria. To terminate the Trusteeship Agreement, it was necessary that the independence of the Southern Cameroons be voted by the UN. Speaking before the vote was taken in the 4th Committee of the UNGA, Mr Traore (UN Permanent Representative of Mali) said, “If the Committee voted against the date of 1 October 1961, the Assembly would be placed in an extremely difficult position, as it would have before it a proposal requesting independence for Southern Cameroons but not specifying any date”. Opposed to this Mr. Okala (Foreign Minister of la Republique du Cameroun) “strongly protested against a vote”, which he regarded as “unconstitutional”. Failing to obtain wide support, he then declared “The delegation of Cameroun would not participate in the vote and would withdraw —” (United Nations General Assembly, XV Session, Official Records, Wednesday, 19 April 1961, New York, p.381). Okala’s, indeed la Republique du Cameroun’s opposition to the granting of independence by the UN before the formation of the federal by the two states, was a clear pointer to the effect that la Republique du Cameroun had already adopted a hidden agenda for the annexation of Southern Cameroons. Here la Republique du Cameroun back paddled on the pledge Mr. Ahmadou Ahidjo made at the UN in 1959 declaring that they were “not annexationists.” La Republique du Cameroun wanted the UN to hand over Southern Cameroons to it for outright annexation and colonisation. But we know that the UN is not an agent for the annexation of small weak states by powerful states. The mission of the UN is to guarantee freedom for all peoples and equality of all nations without which they can be no world democracy and peace. The date 1 October 1961 as Independence Day of Southern Cameroons was put to vote. It was overwhelmingly approved by 50 “YES”, 2 “NO” and 12 Abstentions by the powerful 4th Committee of the UN GA. 1st October 1961 was voted as Southern Cameroons INDEPENDENCE DAY. A Trust territory accedes to independence upon termination of trusteeship. To my mind it is only the UN that can testify as to whether trusteeship in British Southern Cameroons was terminated on 1st October 1961 or it was not. As UNGA Resolution 1608 of April 21, 1961 was not implemented, it is conclusive that there was no federal Constitution debated by the two distinct parliaments and signed into law by their respective elected leaders and no Act of signed to form the Federal United Cameroon Republic by J.N. Foncha for the British Southern Cameroons, and by Ahmadou Ahidjo for la Republique du Cameroun. Some of our fathers for example, J. N. Foncha, S. T. Muna, E. T.Egbe, among others, have stated clearly that no legal instrument exists binding Southern Cameroons and la Republique du Cameroun together. The idea of Southern Cameroons signing a blank cheque (which some lackeys defend cannot be revoked) does not therefore arise. The current struggle is to restore the one and indivisible British Southern Cameroons that has been annexed and colonially occupied by the one and indivisible la Republique du Cameroun, that is, le Camerounaise française which attained independence from France on January 1st 1960. The will of the people is supreme.
