” Want the corpses of our fighters back, or you cant have yours either!” That was the message from No Pity as his fighters carted away the corpse of a LRC militia leader.
The respect accorded to the fallen LRC militia man was stark when compared to the recent LRC rituals of displaying Ambazonian victims of their militias in town squares in poses vainly designed to strike terror in a long immune population. They have not noticed that recreating their French mentors’ terror tactics from the start of the neo colonial era is futile and pointless.
Worse than that, it is impossible to fathom the idea that responding to minor grievances and protests with mass arrests, village burnings, extra-judicial killings and intimidation including crossing the Rubicon of firing into school-bound morning traffic and murdering pregnant women cannot induce any “brother” to reconcile, much less imagine leaving the fate of their future generations to the mercies of such “brothers”!
This method of trying to “solve” the “crisis” leaves us to expect a long road as the authors have shown no signs of being able to empathise in any way that could convince anyone they are going to negotiate anytime soon, unless their masses are served an empathy-inducing taste of the last six years of Ambazonian life.
We the Ambazonians accept that it could be a long rough road …
But we can’t turn back, our hearts are fixed
our minds made up, we’ll never stop
our faith [and just cause] will see us through
