Cameroon - Patrice Nganang: "Maurice Kamto will probably learn a lot of things in prison"


The Cameroonian writer exiled in the United States, Patrice Nganang reacted hot to the detention on remand in the night of February 12 to 13 at the Kondengui Central Prison in Yaounde by Maurice Kamto, his political allies and several others people, mostly activists and supporters of the Movement for the Renaissance of Cameroon (MRC).
For this writer the imprisonment of Kamto is a chance for Cameroonians who must take the measure of the extreme fragility of the regime.

For this writer the imprisonment of Kamto is a chance for Cameroonians who must take the measure of the extreme fragility of the regime.

WHAT OUR PEOPLE MUST DO

The first thing Paul Biya taught Cameroonians is that prison is nothing at all. I was in prison, I spent twenty-one days, and the Cameroonian state, with all its judges, and prosecutors and commissioners, and others stood up before me and in front of witnesses, and abandoned all wacky charges that the Bulu had brought against me.

Admittedly they appeared in the prison a few minutes later, the Bulu, running, and expelled me on new charges, with presidential convoy, confiscating my passport, but I learned a lot. Maurice Kamto will probably learn a lot too. There is nothing wrong with a doctor getting sick too: he lives the daily lives of his patients. There is also nothing wrong with an international lawyer, the best of our country, being incarcerated - he lives what is the reality of the prison republic that Cameroon has become.

Mandela went there. Like Mandela, therefore, he becomes fully and totally One with the cause of liberation. Because from the outset he becomes a prisoner number one, even better than Ayuk Tabe he finds in Kondengui. It is that those who will welcome it, it is above all Anglophones
- Ambazonians. They will probably give him the treatment they gave me, that is to say, the political formation that any opposition to Biya needs, which dates from 1993. They will make him the standard bearer of the Amba-Franco alliance that I have been in for a long time, and whose roots I once planted, in Buea, on December 2, 2017, after touring the English-speaking area - before the declaration of war and the genocide.

At the time of genocide, the good man must be in prison, or on the battlefield. At the time of the civil war, the good man must be in prison. And Maurice Kamto is a good man. He thus occupies the position of the good, the just, the beautiful, the great, the historical, who alone will overthrow the regime of the shriveled, the genocidal regime that has taken us hostage: who burns hospitals with patients in, as was the case on February 10th. There is no greater situation than this, because it clarifies the issue of battle, it is one with what is our present condition.

Before going to prison, Maurice Kamto was clean, a lawyer, and concretely, sorted out the Anglophones, avoiding "bad grains". He preferred Agbor Balla to Ayuk Tabe, he preferred the Ayah Foundation to Amba boys. He was not revolutionary: he preferred change in peace and by elections.

The prison will make him the personification of what our country needs to break the regime of the false: with the regime that invents false guerrillas, fake Amba boys, fake PVs, false observers of Transparency International, false intellectuals , false opponents, and soon a false leader of the opposition to replace him. Everything is being played in front of us, and as maybe one or two people can remember, the first salvo against the false regime was given in 2014, with my quarrel with Owona Nguini on the evaporation of Lapiro de Mbanga.

I say it again, before the regime of the false that has become genocidal, there is only one place for the truth, and it is the prison. Maurice Kamto is in prison, and that's where he should be, because he is the personification of what will free us. He is actually the one who shines from our future. But to realize the future is only possible if we are organized. I will say here that the chain of events that took place wanted me to be released on December 27, 2017, and that I be given the protection of the American nationality.

It is something that suddenly acquires historical significance, because things suddenly become clear: I can act. History becomes straight: I can act with my people, yes. In one year, in days of extraordinary toil, I find myself in my hands, the infrastructure of Hunting on the ground, the infrastructure of the Campaign for the liberation of Maurice Kamto, jsk, and of course, the biggest tontine of the Cameroonian diaspora, the GCTV tontine.

All this took place before all of us, and the results of this organization, of this triple organization, can not be read without the foundation of the Amba-Franco Alliance which set me in motion for a year, through the land - Europe, Africa, USA - in all networks of Anglophones. It's as if all the stars come suddenly in a symphony to give it a direction which, too, is obviously signified: Ongola. The Repair Surface. The nadir, the place for which for years, since 2015, I have, we have worked with Generation Change.

And all the political parties in this country, including the CPDM, went to school for our social actions, the Wataroute. Maurice Kamto is in prison, but curiously the world is more organized than before his arrest, more focused on what is the battle of our liberation, the liberation of our people. Never has my people been so ready, ever.

We took the power! Defend-
