On the IG Stabilizing Policies to secure your trust

Accountability and Action speaks for itself but is ensured by the 90:10 which commits all collected funds in the ratio of 90% to GZ and 10% to humanitarian care. So that is AA.

Building Bridges is the protocol for driving collaboration between all stakeholders in the Ambazonian Liberation struggle, be they in the diaspora or on the ground. Ambazonia News would venture that BB isĀ  a no-brainer.

And yet there has also been some friction between ARF and some diaspora parties. Complementary Commitment is the answer. The diaspora should commit to complement the commitment of the ARF and the civilians on GZ who, respectively, have to execute the push out of the La Republique du Cameroun’s militias, and demonstrate that Ambazonia can live a dignified freedom.

What happened in Canada? IG to brief in next APP Constituent Assembly

Featured

Pixels have aligned. Ink has flowed and so has saliva. But what is going on with the so-called Canada “?”

The IG is holding the next Constituents Assembly of the APP on Saturday 22/10/2022 with a promise to “brief” on “Canada”. It should be noted that one of the IG’s slogans is “Total and Unconditional Independence for Ambazonia” so Ambazonia News will be keen to relay the briefing come the conclusion of the Constituents Assembly.

Other expected topics might be the state of the Election Modalities which were ordered in previous resolutions of the CA APP.

Ambazonia restoration day 5 years on

Featured

On this day in 2017 Ambazonians rose as one, armed with peace plants, to say “Enough is enough!” La Republique du Cameroun laugh in their faces “Vous allez faiire quoi?”

Five years on, La Republique is not laughing and Ambazonia has made notable strides despite many mistakes and stumbles which could be directly attributed to lack of experience and sheer unpreparedness.

If you read this please comment to give your perspective of the progress towards Ambazonian Liberation in the last five years

Election Modalities – the introduction

Featured

This section extols the need to promote accountability and responsiveness in the leaders, including during a war.

It also promotes the opportunity for voter education in an open and competitive election process which would force aspirants to defend their past actions and future plans for their proposed tenure. The following two paragraphs are quoted directly:

” Elections thus provide political education for citizens and ensure the responsiveness of democratic governments to the will of the people. The overwhelming majority of Southern Cameroonian (Ambazonians) have demanded election modalities to govern the conduct of elections to the presidency of the country. “

“This law (Election Modalities) is therefore intended to provide a leveled playing field where Ambazonians aspiring to presidential leadership of our struggle can exercise their civic rights in a free and fair election.
Modalities of election of members into other institutions shall be subject to another law (The APP Laws).”

The Critique

The responsiveness extoled here in this quote contrasts with the Restoration Council’s lack of response to the flaws and deficiencies outlined in the Executive feedback! It is tempting to also point to the several typographical errors which persist in the document. Laws are supposed to be unambiguous and the minimum that should have been ensured was that the words used were the intended words and one way is to submit to many eyes to help spot and correct them.

The unintended consequence of the “competitive” process has lead to challenges verging on personal insults and interpreted as such! Ambazonia News doubts whether this particular artefact was intended or anticipated by the RC. The solution would have been a properly reviewed and amended document based on common consensus rather than a flawed edict which the RC then allowed many vocal “defenders” to “protect” with accusations of “sabotage”.

What about a solution? One way would be by responsively addressing feedback, after duly presenting the draft to the people and other organs of government.

It must be noted and clear that ownership of the document belongs to the citizens, even if, at first glance it appears to be the purview of the RC. The individuals who happen to be at the RC at any time will come and go. Being in the RC does not elevate anyone to a status of infallibility! Instead, Councillors would benefit from being responsive to the aspirations and views of their constituents.

Elections 2022: Just win or do the right thing?

Featured

President Marianta Njomia has concluded that the RC is not going to amend the Election Modalities to meet the needs of Ambazonia.

The president has issued a document to outline the flaws, the biggest of which was the failure to pass the “law” through a citizens’ assembly or even to get the presidential signature as required by constitutional articles.

Ambazonia news will be doing an article-by-article analysis of the offending “Election Modalities” in separate posts but we can confirm that the president has chosen to persist with doing the right thing – making sure that Ambazonian institutions are functional and fit for purpose, not just for the present poll but in setting a standard for being reflective and responsive to the needs of all citizens henceforth.

Time will tell how the conflict evolves but Ambazonians would benefit from inspecting the facts and drawing their own conclusions. Our citizens are not and should not be helpless. They should know the facts and insist on their representatives being responsive and reflective to/of the citizens’ wishes. This should apply to all representatives be they LGA chairs, or County Chairs, or Restoration Councillors or members of the Executive.

The president is insisting on transparency and accountability. That is the right thing to do in the view of Ambazonia news.

President calls halt to elections until modalities fixed

President Marianta Njomia has cited grave irregularities in the electoral process in suspending the poll urging the Restoration Council to regularise the modalities to ensure the elections call hold in a constitutional atmosphere. The call is contained in a letter addressed on Thursday 25 August 2022 to the Chair of the RC.

The major stumbling block is the fact that the Modalities were not submitted for promulgation by the president as per the provisions of the Constitution, meaning they are technically not the law and the process is unconstitutional.

The President stresses that the RC document provides for the requirements to be completed in time for the poll to hold as planned.

… Ambazonians now need to take possession and “behave free” as we continue to #fee4fire.

When it was still feasible for LRC’s militias to crush the will of Ambazonia

When LRC militias casually burnt homes and grand mothers in Ambazonia

When LRC militias casually issued statement to the effect that they had “neutralised suspected separatists” in Ambazonia

When LRC media routinely referred to Ambazonia as an ” imaginary state they call Ambazonia”

When we still thought marching to the Commonwealth Headquarters would do it for Ambazonia

When Mr Biya thought “declaring war” on Ambazonia was a metaphor…

Field Marshal stepped up

Field Marshal maintained the heat

Field Marshal changed minds until Ambazonia became a normal word

Field Marshal inspired others to step up

That means the departure of Field Marshal from the stage, though very painful, does not threaten the existence of Ambazonia

Now to “behave free”, Ambazonia needs to multiply community schools to and use our own curriculum and qualifications. The exit of Field Marshal cannot be anything but the hand over of the baton to all citizens.

We honour Field Marshal today in our hearts as we wait to honour him appreciately when the occupation ends.

Glory to the heroes who bear our land with their blood.

The Most High God is the Watchman of Ambazonia.
