Ambazonia A Okay!

Ambazonia progress and power.

“Hail! Hail! Hail this land of glory!”

Six years ago Ambazonia was a fringe idea and a word used by a small collection of people. There was a debate even among those people whether it was better to stick to “Southern Cameroons” or “Former British Southern Cameroons” or use the “less familiar” “Ambazonia”. Today we are no longer debating the name. We know our legal righteousness. We know our moral righteousness. We have reclaimed our dignity.

“We, the Ambazonians, pledge our loyalty!”

In this write up I will attempt to get us to take a positive stock of the progress and power of Ambazonia bearing in mind how much psychological attack we the Ambazonians are withstanding. That we do not even know we are under such attack, makes it even more remarkable that we are withstanding it. The truth is Ambazonia is doing the job for us. Ambazonia is protecting us as a nation should protect its citizens. All around the globe we are holding our heads high and savouring the dignity that once eluded us when we would hear the phrase “but I thought Cameroun is a francophone country”!

This week when that assertion was made at the Commonwealth games in Birmingham #Birmingham2022 it was true and valid! As the presenters announced LRC athletes in the opening ceremony, they announced that Cameroun is “an odd example of a francophone country which is in the Commonwealth.” All I can say to any LRC functionary who provided this gem to the BBC is “Thank You!”. How long have we been trying to establish our separateness from LRC. We look forward to our participation if we deem it in our interest to apply to join!

“Allegiance to our heroes who bore the land with their blood”

Our fora are flooded with clumsy suggestive write-ups to make us question our commitment and accuse each other. We pick them up and spread them further with our own magnifications and single-person witness statements, some of them third-hand quotes. And yet Ambazonia has only gotten stronger. LRC functionaries and lackeys now accept and use the name with the correct spelling – which is more than can be said for their use of the names of their “head of government” at the start of “his government”! Renowned diplomates are using the name routinely, as in without supplementary explanations or Southern Cameroons in brackets. As per the foregoing regarding #Birmingham2022, internationally renowned and authoritative media house of the calibre of the BBC acknowledge our separateness from LRC! They no longer mention us as an appendage to French Cameroun!

Ambazonians continue to express their choice weekly in quiet dignified observation of meditative “country Sunday”. LRC has tried to inflict all sorts of pain, offer inducements and bribes, threatened livelihoods, threatened and applied violence and non of these have dissuaded the masses. If anything these LRC efforts have validated the righteousness of Ambazonia. Ambazonians have come to value and treasured their sacrifice for their nation and the dignity that the nation is giving them.

“You shall live in plenty, meeting our needs!”

Enter the psycholgical effort! It used to be called propaganda in olden times and consisted blatant slanted messages with a clear characteristic designed to raise the morale of one side while sapping that of the other. It was easily indentifiable as it could be easily sourced, that is, it did not take much to tell where it had come from. For one thing, propagandists did not bother to disguise who they were, but rather concentrated on the message. These days it is heavily disguised and because of the prevalence of social media and the relative lack of cost it is more aand more shrouded as it propagates. By the time a message has been forwarded five times, it is practically impossible to determine its source or its purpose. But that only makes it more effective as it engages most people in debating and propagating it – each propagation lending more plausibility as it appears to come, implicitly endorsed, by our “contacts”!

“Ambazonia, Land of Freedom!”

Our reminder to deal with this psych ops is to remember the fundamentals.
We are Ambazonians from Ambazonia, a UN recognised territory with international boundaries.
We had no army or leadership when LRC decided to launch a war against us. Ironically in so doing validating our status as a separate nation. LRC helped define our boundaries by targeting us for the internet blackout. They validate and define our borders by giving us the nickname NOSO and subjecting our citizens to the treatments they do… including the special treatment as the only place in the world where soldiers fire live rounds into school-run traffic or burn down villages with pregnant women and children – and repeat the dose!
The people of Ambazonia now accept they are Ambazonian and express that weekly.
The people of Ambazonia are decolonising their minds in small but significant steps. Even when they study under LRC they know they are just keeping up with the international knowledge competition. Increasingly Ambazonia is running community schools, which are the genesis of our next step in decolonization.
We have many who are putting their lives on the line to defend Ambazonia for zero pay! How much more does anyone need to “prove” the persistence and resilience of a state! Ambazonia gives her citizens dignity and her citizens like that dignity and love their nation.

“And your children shall be like the stars above”

Collaboration! Ambazonians who know they are Ambazonian should collaborate with Ambazonia! Build the bridges that will speed up our liberation.
Some of us, including even those who know this psych ops is going on, are occasionally down-hearted.

The solution is to have a look at the Anthem and the Flag each morning…

AND REMEMBER MOST OF THE NEGATIVE FORWARDS EVEN FROM YOUR CONTACTS ORIGINATE FROM LRC’s AGENTS. DELETE THEM! THEY DO NOT AFFECT OUR RESTORATION.

“The Most High God is the Watchman of our Nation”

Ambazonia! You are A-Okay!

No Pity on empathy…

” 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

Mundi “rescue”: Cho Ayaba muddles explanation

Ambazonian fora have been awash with theories about the rescue of Regina Mundi by LRC’s BIR.

More like theory, for they all speculate that the rescue was staged, a ransom having been paid. There are aspects of the drama, no pun intended, which seem to support that theory.

First the rescue battle took place at night and in the midst of all the confusion of a battle no ADF fighters were lost – luckily

Ms Mundi emerged unscathed and looking fitter and better cared for than Ambazonians in LRC cells.  It is fair to guess that ADF has fewer resources to care for prisoners.

ADF, through AgovC, apparently wanted, among others, Sesseku Ayuk Tabe released. That would be a new departure given that AgovC refused to have anything to do with his IG.

Ms Mundi was labelled and treated as an enabler meaning she is an Ambazonian accused of collaboration with the enemy. Yet AgovC proposed and expected to exchange their citizen for others of their citizens with a foreign occupier.

Apparently Ms Mundi was condemned to death before being kept to bargain with.

There are just too many inconsistencies and [lucky] coincidences to discount the prevailing theory among Ambazonians. It could well be a very acute case of inexperience but one thing is now certain. ADF has ground to make to lose the tag they have gained from previous writings of Michel Biem Tong.

Cho Ayaba has magnanimously claimed “responsibility” citing political gains in mitigation. He must be out of touch not to have known the expectations of the sufferers of Ground Zero who expected a measure of revenge for the daily indignities they undergo – and said so in the wake of the drama.

Without further explanation of the “political gains” we have to wonder where they have been made! Is LRC now going to cave to international pressure because they have failed to “handle that episode of the crisis internally”? Paradox. Does the international community now have an incentive to “intervene”? No! International community works on self interest and are more likely to be offering their offices to LRC to talk down future episodes, if indeed any of them took part in this charade.
