Ambazonia: the journey contnues

It is that time of year again. Though it can now be taken for granted that our people shun La Republique du Cameroun’s annual charade, it is still upsetting and annoying to see them and their enablers try to make-believe by trampling the graves of our hero and innocent victims.

Would the Ngarbuh families forgive us?

Would baby Martha forgive us?

Would all the women and children enduring hardship in the bushes forgive us?

Would our captive abductees in La Republique du Cameroun jails forgive us?

Once again we must make our objection unambiguous and unmistakable in words and deeds.

Join the IG to sponsor the your Liberation struggle.

All-Ambazonia Activists’ Conference Resolutions

Ambazonian Activists gathered in Belgium, resolved to foster collaboration among Ambazonian Independentists in particular and stakeholders in general, all aimed at achieving a swift attainment of independence for Ambazonia. This was done on April 29th 2023 in Aarschot near Brussels. The previous day the Activists had petitioned international partners such as the EU on behalf of Ambazonia.

In an apt demonstration they showed, using a sketch, how communication could help progress the Ambazonian Liberation Struggle and wrest the information war from the grasp of the enemy.

They scored high immediately on the objective of fostering collaboration by not only attracting the attendance of several movements but getting them to share face to face contact, table, food and drink and a dance.

The Ambazonian Liberation is God-ordained.

IG President Marianta Njomia has reiterated her popular and successful policy on the prosecution of the Ambazonian Liberation Struggle. It outlines a simple ratio for distributing funds raised by Ambazonian citizens and ensures that Action occurs proportional to the resources while seeking to support our refugees, prisoners and so-called internally displaced victims using a fixed proportion of resources.

The proportion of resources assigned to IG officials or any other diasporan leader of the Ambazonian Liberation Struggle is 0%. The rationale is that we of the diaspora must sacrifice materially and financially to complement the higher sacrifice of the Restoration Forces and the civilians on the ground.

IG Calls on International Institutions to do job on LRC abductions of Ambazonians

The IG has cited the 4th Geneva Convention on the protection of civilians in armed conflict in calling on international institutions to assume their responsibilities in the face of continued war crimes and genocidal acts by the military of La République du Cameroun.

The statement comes in the wake of recent mass abductions in Bali Nyonga on the 8th of March (International Women’s day), where the abductees included an 85 year old grand-mother on her way to church, and forty others. A week earlier a similar number had been rounded up in Matoh in Meme county on 2nd of March 2023.

These acts must impact the upcoming All Ambazonian Conference, AAC, being prepared by Ambazonian leaders.

AAC? 1961 mark 2?

It is old news now that La Republique du Cameroun has “rejected” the Canadian-Facilitated Process which was meant to be the product if the pretalks.

Since the “shocking” communiqué international partners have continued to “help” Ambazonian stakeholders to pursue other avenues for a “solution” in the Ambazonian Liberation Struggle. One such avenue is the organisation of the “All Ambazonian Conference”, AAC (not) to be confused with the two previous namesakes?

As these lines are committed actions are underway to “ensure a broad participation” in order to show the international partners that the  Ambazonia Liberation Struggle is universally supported among Ambazonians. Surely a tautology! Well, only if those international partners and the Ambazonian stakeholders were on the same page, and they are not!

“International partners” tend to be looking for “peace” which means the lack of active conflict or fighting. They are not generally exercised about whether that means the citizens of those peaceful places are experiencing justice or injustice. That is why La Republique du Cameroun is able to commit the acts they have over the last few decades, and more intensely, the last six years, in Ambazonia and still be tolerated. Our international partners would love nothing more than for what La Republique calls “normalcy” to return to Ambazonia! Ambazonian stakeholders and leaders need to be aware that, putting it bluntly, most international partners may not be on the same page when it comes to the desire and insistence on the justice part of the issue. No matter how helpful, they are more than likely to be constantly nudging Ambazonians away from total independence. To them it is just a job and a feather in their current functionary’s cap if they achieve peace, even temporary peace. Ambazonian leaders need to deal with the issues from their own interest and avoid trying to attain thresholds set by those partners especially when La Republique is not being required to do anything. In the run up to the 1961 plebiscite the UK representative at the UN objected to the option of independence for Southern Cameroons though the UK remained prepared to present the façade of neutrality “in letting the people of Southern Cameroons decide their own fate.”

To their ends, various international partners have been helping a select few Ambazonian leaders to assimilate the idea that Ambazonia needs to impress the international community! This is where the “wide participation” being touted for the AAC is a dangerous problem to solve. On the face of it, it would indeed provide the evidence so that Ambazonia can call out the international community’s continued tolerance of La Republique du Cameroun’s stance. The questions remain: then what? What if they do and what if the international community condemns La Republique du Cameroun? What if La Republique simply ignores it and continues to play for time? Where would that take Ambazonia?

That was assuming the best for the AAC with the recommended attendance. There is worse and sadly that worse is more likely and much more in line with the international partners’ outlook. They want a broad participation to be the whole spectrum of “people born in Ambazonia” from proponents of “one Cameroon” through federalists to independentists. Though it would be a paradox for the extreme end of this spectrum to attend an All Ambazonian Conference, it is not beyond imagining that La Republique would quite like Ambazonians to be bugged down in more costly debate while they continue to kill our people as they have done through out the various “processes”.

Even if the conference went perfectly it is hard for it to be able to resolve strongly in favour of independence were the wide spectrum to participate. “Federalists” such as Munzu are on record that they were waiting for the fighting to “subside” when “the antagonists” realise they can’t win. They [federalists] would then come in as “the happy median”. One of the boasts in that outing was that Munzu was an “insider” of the workings of the international system! Would Dr Munzu be part of the wider participation? Would Balla? Would that be because they represent any constituencies or just that they have high profiles with the international community? What about the nebulous CDN? Is this the time juncture?

Does Ambazonia want to start making concessions even before any remote possibility of negotiations with La Republique du Cameroun? Should those concessions be to parties who not only have folded arms and callously ignored the crimes against humanity but, in some instances declared their willingness to wait for the opportunity before coming in to “negotiate federation”?

Maybe participants at an All Ambazonian Conference need to be Ambazonian first. This leads to the question of who an Ambazonian is. Are they simply anyone born in Ambazonia or do they need to be actively pro Ambazonian Restoration? Which of these is the most needed at this juncture in our Liberation Struggle?

Ambazonia Liberation mindset

As La Republique du Cameroun embarks on another contrived sham of an election we the Ambazonians are looking at having to “ban” the “elections on our territory. But do we have to? What have they got to do with us?

On the face of it we should not have to ban that exercise since it is known that La Republique du Cameroun withdrew from the flawed union and reverted to her 1960 international borders. Don’t understand? Read the Bamenda High Court ruling HCB28/92.

On that basis, Ambazonians should not be enduring the humiliation of a sham election where La Republique du Cameroun actually appoint stooges to pose as representatives of Southern Cameroons. It should be understood that this scheme of appointing stooges is the tenuous thread by which La Republique du Cameroun somehow sustains her “illegal forcible occupation” of Southern Cameroons (Ambazonia) in the eyes of the international community. They can claim that Ambazonia is represented in their government no matter how flawed that government is.

That is La Republique du Cameroun’s modus operandi along with the reasons. That is why they did appoint “senators” purportedly from the “opposition” SDF in their out-going “legislature”.  With the SDF claiming over a sustained period to be grounded in Ambazonia it suited La Republique du Cameroun to be able to point to their presence in their parliament as evidence that Ambazonia is represented and, therefore, participating and therefore less in need of self-determination. That is also why LRC is very likely to appoint SDF stooges soon afterward even if no “voting” takes place and even if they are unable to raise and SDF “winners”.

For our part, we the Ambazonians need to make it clear that any such stooge appointees do not represent our nation. We should not take part in any vacuous acts claimed as an election. That way we have the basis to demand justice from the international community for the return of nationhood as it would be clear that not only is La Republique du Cameroun the country with 1960 international borders outside of Ambazonia, but that their claim of representation is false.

What about “Ambazonian” so-called “representatives” in LRC? If they are Ambazonians they would have the precedent from history to follow – they must quit the (East Cameroon) La Republique du Cameroun “parliament” just like our forbears quit the Eastern Nigeria assembly to create self government in the United Nations Trust Territory of Southern Cameroons back then.

Many are not “Ambazonian”. Having understood the stakes if they persist in following their stomachs at the expense of Ambazonian victims of genocide then our Restoration Forces should have the mandate to arrest them or dissuade them appropriately and proportionately. Ambazonia has lost enough school children, shot by nervous occupying militias; enough pregnant women killed in deliberate “bavures”; enough homes burnt; enough youths so-called “neutralised” for being suspected fighters.

With LRC stalling on the Canada-facilitated talks, for one thing, and showing the distinct lack of “a responsible adult at home” Ambazonian stakeholders need to take heed and engage collaborative planning for “rainy days” so clearly pencilled in for La Republique du Cameroun’s near future.

When our historical leaders left Eastern Nigeria they were not a single party but they collaborated to institute a functioning multi-party democracy. Ambazonia’s confidence should flow from the knowledge that we can actually still boast more transparent transitions of power in our parliament in a few years of existence than La Republique du Cameroun has managed in a much longer time scale. We are better!

The Most High God is the Watchman of Ambazonia.

DDR a no-go Hobson’s Choice

IG president Marianta Njomia has spotlighted La Republique du Cameroun’s misuse of the so-called DDR Centres set up to purportedly “reintegrate” former fighters of the Ambazonian Restoration Forces. Evidence is that the victims of these centres are being coerced to side with the genocidal militias they were moved to volunteer to repel when first joining the ARFs.

Examples abound of disappointed “beneficiaries”, the most infamous of whom General Nambere. It is “obvious” that anyone who is targeted by these paradoxical places would have thought long and hard and concluded not only that they had no future with La Republique du Cameroun, but that they could not silently and passively witness the genocide, that, before becoming active in the ARF. Therefore it should not be an issue because nobody should turn from having resolved to join the ARF to believing that they could benefit in any way from the DDR set up by La Republique du Cameroun while their militias are still burning homes and carrying out what are extra-judicial killings if they are simultaneously peddling the idea of DDR!

Nobody should be that gullible! If they were minded to do what they claim the DDR would do, for the former ARF the war would not have started. The protests would not have started because the “marginalisation” would not have started nor gone on for so long! Failing that, they would have heeded the teachers and lawyers and “reformed” rather than resort to the violence and declaration of war!

Could they declare war and then “help” setup it’s reluctant self-defence victims as they claim DDR would? Then why not leave out the war and just respond to the petitions before the protests began … Why not, if they did not get enough time to respond to the petitions, respond more logically to the protests?

If something is illogical it cannot be true no matter how much anyone hopes or wishes it would be. The fate of many inmates of the DDR should serve as a warning to any ARF fighters.

Having once volunteered to risk it all in self defence of our nation how painful must it be to be so easily and obviously “fooled”?

As Ambazonians we continue to hold our heroes in high respect as they strive “to bear the land with their blood” in the most difficult circumstances. Even if they temporarily lose sight we appreciate their least effort and sympathise.

We the Ambazonians must continue to encourage our heroes and make sure we treasure their lives and honour and courage and dignity.

It is patently tough to sustain the effort but our fight is our dignity. It is the dignity of our heroes. It is difficult but there is no choice at this stage. There was no choice even before, and certainly not after joining the ARFs.

The Most High God is the Watchman of Ambazonia.

Ambazonia Liberation God-ordained

The story of Ambazonia is a long sequence of surmounting obstacles in more and more unlikely fashion.
The most recent is the fateful declaration of La Republique du Cameroun’s  (LRC’s) communication minister on the Canadian Led Facilitation Process. Imagine the fudges being concocted with a selection of Ambazonian stakeholders who seemed determined to let things “progress” and “see what happens”. There were dubious participants but somehow “everyone” trusted the process and “everyone” of the Ambazonian stakeholders declared their objective was the same – total and unconditional independence for Ambazonia. Even so, they were all relaxed to ignore the dubious participants and “see what happens”. They were even relaxed in the contradiction of taking part in a process which attempted to call Ambazonia “the North West and South West Regions of the Republic of Cameroon”!

After the Canadian Communique, the “Leaders” of the Ambazonian side issued their communique and set about batting away any doubts, sometimes with simple dismissal of doubters as “people who have not been in the Struggle for the Thirty years that we have”.
It was like literal history repeating itself!
A small cohort of selected “leaders” determined to trust that informal dealings with a “brother state” would “turn out fine” and trusting the goodwill and good intensions of Western countries who at once insist they are neutral to the outcome but nudge the dealings towards an already visibly untenable premise.

The plebiscite of the 11th of February 1961 excluded the option of independence for Southern Cameroons, pushing a vibrant multi-party parliamentary system into a union with a proxy dictatorship run remotely by a “secret” colonial master! At the time there was vibrant debate about the type of union to come with a large cross-section “hoping” for a union of equal separate states verging on a confederation.

The leaders “trusted” the union of “brothers” would work. That was in 1961. This is 2023 … and the “leaders” once again trust in the face of similar doubts.
It did not work out in 1961. Witness is the current war. It is unlikely to work this time either under the same “trust”.
That Canada is in the open on mediation is proof that Southern Cameroons survived the inadequacies, not to say inequities of the plebiscite, hopeless though the situation seemed over the years.

  1. LRC omitted to seal the deal with a treaty – which would have restricted the abilities of the likes of Canada to attempt the mediation they are.
  2. LRC then broke the “understandings” imposed by the Western partners
  3. LRC reduced herself to a failed state unable to command the continued support of international partners when Southern Cameroons woke up again.

During the sixty years Southern Cameroons current position in being up for any form of negotiation was unthinkable but for the series of small negligences and oversteps that kept the friction and discontent and legal righteousness alive. LRC broke “laws” but there would have been zero chance of any meaningful challenge had they not also made the overstretch of attempting to nudge Southern Cameroons into an unnecessarily cruel and exploitative existence. They even saw the need to make the mistake of technically withdrawing from the failed union by reverting to their 1960 name, and therefore international borders and choosing to persist even after realising their mistake! When the protests came, they could have offered to appease before a critical mass assembled and that would have sealed it but a bully is always only ever a bully. They trusted that even their corrupt and incompetent “forces of law and order” could quell the protest using violence. They wanted to be seen to dominate not just win.

Six years later, Ambazonian leaders were edging towards a repeat when LRC shows herself once more to be no match for Ambazonians divine grace and protection. By attempting to rubbish the mediation LRC is giving Ambazonians more time to make the break and establish once and for all that they have no future in any form of association with LRC… the home burnings, the killings of school children, the mass arrests would seem to induce no remorse in LRC’s leaders!
How lucky for Ambazonia that, in that frame of mind, LRC is unable to rally to come to the table when they could have secured relatively favourable terms! They misjudged 60 years ago, six years ago and six weeks ago!
LRC came close to the Mediation thanks to the tenacity of Ambazonians in carrying the fight. Now that their institutions are imploding and only projected to become more dysfunctional, Ambazonia needs to intensify the expulsion while building the collaboration framework to take our Nation in hand imminently.

The Most High God is Watching Over Ambazonia

IG President reminds Ambazonia to shun LRC commemoration as Freedom Day looms

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!”
