Ambazonia News proposes the text of the president’s audio message. The message marks a step up as it was coordinated with most other Ambazonian stakeholders. Do take the message to heart ..
We the Ambazonians:
” Dear Ambazonians, fellow Southern Cameroonians, my brothers and sisters, my mothers and fathers, distinguished patriots of the Ambazonian liberation struggle, Most respectable Ambazonian Restoration Fighters; 21 gun salut.
I greet you all in the name of our ancestors.
This is the voice of your daughter, sister and mother, President Marianta Njomia of your Interim Government.
I’m addressing you today with regard a historic date in our existence as a people. On the 11th February 1961, our right to self-determination and hence the sovereignty of Ambazonia as a nation was illegally, manipulatively and fraudulently stolen and today our land of origin is being illegally governed by a heartless invader and oppressor, La Republique du Cameroun (LRC) who is ready to go as far as arbitrarily squandering the lives of our loved ones to exterminate Ambazonia and claim ownership of the God given resources of our land of birth.
Shall we sit by and watch another enemy 11th February celebration charade in our territory, in their attempt to tell the world that normalcy has returned to our land while they are still nefariously and viciously undertaking their scorch earth policy, arrests and killings of our people seeking for peace through justice and their right to self-determination?
First it was innocent baby Martha caught in crossfire on her way to school, then later came baby Carol. Who next? Yesterday it was, cry for Justice for the journalist Samuel Wazzizi. Today it’s Martinez Zogo. And tomorrow? We are losing lives and properties by the actions of a regime built on crime, corruption, and cruelty even on her own citizens. A junta regime that has no moral pedigree to fake claims of jurisdiction, hence govern Ambazonia.
After extensive consultations with the cabinet, the county leadership, our Activists, the county defence heads of the Ambazonian National Self-Defence Council – ANSC, the military wing of the independentist movements of the Ambazonian Coalition Team – ACT, the leadership of all the Ambazonian Restoration Fighting forces on the ground in 13 counties through the Ambazonian People Liberation Council (APLC) and through consolidating collaboration for joint actions with the fighting forces of other Ambazonian independentist entities in some counties, in line with the IG Building bridges policy;
Your IG, reiterating that directives for consultation with the freedom fighting forces included feedback on efforts to educate and get the consensus of the civilian population as to why persistent efforts must be made to render Ambazonia ungovernable for the occupier LRC, hereby announces a TWO DAY lockdown starting 00.01 (one minute past midnight) of Friday 10th February to midnight of Saturday 11th February 2023.
Ambazonia will be on lockdown for 2 days. Friday 10th February and Saturday 11th February.
So, Mami and Papa them, my dear Ambazonian brothers and sisters, why is this lockdown important in the prosecution of our liberation?
You would have realized that despite the increased political pressure from the international community and the good political will from nations like Switzerland and now Canada to offer their good offices to intervene in facilitating a process that will address the root causes and end the ongoing conflict between us and LRC, LRC government whilst diplomatically blundering by attempting to chicken out, still engage their baby scouts in killing innocent civilians and destroying properties in Ambazonia.
By this two day lockdown, we are using civil disobedience as a tool of protest and resistance to express the will of the Ambazonian people in clamouring for the total and unconditional independence of Ambazonia.
In recent years we have maintained the expression of the will of the Ambazonian people for freedom by successfully observing Kontri Sundays. Defending our dignity patriotically and selflessly demands that we shun the 11th February and erase any commemorations related to its celebration on our land.
An effective 2 day complete lockdown of the Ambazonian Territory will equate to a total boycott of 11th February celebrations in Ambazonia, hence,
1) We will be debunking LRC’s historical fallacy and the fraud that characterized the fake plebiscite of the 11 of February 1961 when Southern Cameroons Ambazonia’s sovereignty was stolen, hence sensitize the International Community to the effect that Ambazonians reject the outcome of the fraudulent plebiscite of the 11th of February 1961.
2) We will be Denying LRC’s governance over Ambazonia, hence their attempts to project a one Cameroon agenda to the International Community. No, Ambazonia and LRC are two separate nations with two distinct people.
3) We will be denying LRC’s claim of return to normalcy in Ambazonia while they are nefariously killing our people.
4) We will be attracting the attention of the International Community on the need to increase political pressure and punitive sanctions on LRC to address the root causes of the conflict sooner than letter.
5) We will be reminding LRC and the International Community that it’s the WILL of the Ambazonian people to govern ourselves and manage the resources in our territory.
Your IG, in arriving at the decision to declare just a two-day lockdown of the Ambazonian territory on Friday the 10th of February AND Saturday the 11th of February 2023, highly considered the need for us to constantly make efforts to render Ambazonian ungovernable for the enemy LRC without inflicting further unnecessary prolonged pain and suffering on our own people.
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, Ma Mammy and Papa them, on Friday 10th and Saturday the 11th of February, there shall be:
-No participation in any social activity especially match pass organized by the enemy LRC
-No movements to work, school or marketplaces
-No intra or inter county movements will be allowed
-No movements of Taxis, Okadas, transport cars and private cars
Only Health related services like hospitals, Pharmacies, Ambulances, and health related activities of Humanitarian organizations will be allowed to function in our territory during these two days.
Please make provisions and stock up with water, food, and medicines before Friday the 10th of February.
Stay indoors the whole of Friday the 10th, Stay indoors the whole of Saturday the 11th, on Sunday the 12th go about your normal activities and on Monday the 13 of February we resume and respect our normal ghost town.
Our Ambazonian Restoration Fighters from all 13 counties are there to protect you and enforce this two-day lockdown of our territory slated for Friday the 10th and Saturday the 11th of February.
On behalf of our forefathers and you the never again generation of die hearted patriots, I thank, appreciate and extend 21 gun salute to each and every Ambazonia Restoration Fighter for resisting the enemy and standing tall to defend homeland.
Longest live Ambazonia
Shortest live the Ambazonian Liberation War.
Ambazonia will be governed by Ambazonians!”
