Anglophone Crisis: Switzerland asks 10 billion from Paul Biya regime to convince secessionists

In June 2019, in a statement, the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) of Switzerland indicated that this country had been mandated by a majority of parties to facilitate an inclusive negotiation process in Cameroon.

This after a meeting with various Cameroonian opposition groups that took place from 25 to 27 June of the current year. Only, on September 10, 2019, the President of the Republic of Cameroon announced the convening for the end of the month, a large national dialogue. Paul Biya thus favored an endogenous solution to this crisis in a context where several countries like Switzerland saw themselves as peacemakers. Today, after the failure of this Swiss option, the "mediators" of this country ask via certain networks, 10 billion FCFA to the State of Cameroon to involve terrorists in the great national dialogue.

This is no secret, the President of the Republic His Excellency Paul Biya is known to listen to his compatriots. In due course, it has taken appropriate initiatives and decisions to bring peace to the North West and Southwest regions. On September 10, 2019, the Head of State announced the holding of a major national dialogue at the end of September 2019. Around the Prime Minister, Head of Government who will chair, this historic meeting will bring together a raft of personalities from diverse horizons: politicians, economic operators and other representatives of all layers of the national community. It will be a question of going through the evils that have these last three years, put in harm the foundations of the Cameroonian society mortgaging at the same time the future of the nation. A country characterized by a unique socio-cultural and ethnic diversity in Africa, Cameroon has built its unity through its various components, recognized and welcomed by all observers. Yet these values ​​of tolerance, acceptance of others and of living together have recently been undermined by various actors, most of whom are war contractors, who have not hesitated to attack life. innocent victims, to attack public property. Including the most vital social infrastructure for the well-being of citizens.

Swiss mediation

Switzerland announced in June 2019 to play a mediating role in the Anglophone crisis in Cameroon where separatists campaign for the creation of an independent state in the North West and South West regions.

In a statement, the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) stated that "Switzerland has been mandated by a majority of the parties to facilitate an inclusive negotiation process".

"The FDFA is working to find a peaceful and lasting solution to the crisis in northwestern and southwestern Cameroon, in collaboration with the Center for Humanitarian Dialogue," a Geneva-based organization. A meeting with "various opposition groups" Cameroon took place from June 25 to 27 in Switzerland, then explained the FDFA. A first meeting, also with the opposition, was held in May, according to a spokesman for the FDFA. The ministry stressed that "the objective of this (second) meeting was to prepare the future peace negotiations between the Cameroonian government and the political opposition".

The announcement came as about forty Cameroonian opponents - exiles, according to the newspaper La Tribune de Genève - had forced entry a large Geneva hotel where the Cameroonian president was staying.Impossible thing in Cameroon. An act that, according to some sources, had not been sufficiently supervised by certain forces of the order of this country under the fallacious pretext that the space dedicated to the hotel in question was a private setting supposed inviolable except solicitation of the persons in charge of this hotel. In the opinion of some observers of the international political scene, it was a veiled way for Switzerland to support the defectors of the Head of State of Cameroon settled in Switzerland.

Fierce opponents determined to bring down the President of the Republic of Cameroon yet democratically re-elected by his compatriots in the presidential election of October 7, 2019 for another term of 07 years at the head of Cameroon. A Swiss mediation variously appreciated by several Cameroonians. In the opinion of many of them, Cameroon did not need a foreign mediator who is not really aware of the realities in the north-west and south-west regions to solve the crisis in the country.

All the more so since, after the attempt of aggression of their Head of State on Swiss soil, they saw there the support of a country yet friend if one sticks to the diplomatic language, to a group of terrorists having found refuge in it and yet threatens to plunge Cameroon into chaos if its current leaders do not think of leaving power. A problematic mediation that did not spread its tentacles until September 10, 2019 date of address to the nation of His Excellency Paul Biya. In these, President Paul Biya had these words: "I am calling precisely the countries that shelter these extremists. If they really care about the situation of the people in North West and Southwest, act against these criminals. Most of them are no longer Cameroonian nationals, but they spend their time raising funds to perpetrate terrorist acts in Cameroon, to sponsor fires, kidnappings and assassinations and to launch slogans to prevent children from dying. 'go to school and the citizens to quietly go about their business. "

The 10 billion requested by the Swiss to involve the terrorists in the great national dialogue With the decision to organize a great national dialogue, Paul Biya has taken his responsibility in soul and conscience both before his people and history. With this commitment, President Biya has favored an endogenous solution to this crisis in a context in which several countries, institutions and the world fed him with advice and saw himself as a peacemaker. His choice: to get involved and pay for himself, as he has done for 37 years, paying great attention to relevant external contributions, but bringing a Cameroonian response, at the proper time by himself.Paul Biya has come, in his position as Head of State, to break the mercantilist ambitions of certain ousted mediators such as Switzerland. The Helvetic Confederation, with its share of mediators, saw its action diluted like sugar in water.

Thus, the country represented in Cameroon by Ambassador Pietro Lazzeri during the period of crisis in the North West and South West regions, a figure of the rest suspected of having provided misinformation to some European chancelleries on the situation in these areas, has hardly given up in its intention to play mediators while, the President of the Republic has appointed the Prime Minister, Head of Government, Dr.Dion Ngute, son of one of the regions in crisis to lead this great national dialogue.Indeed, via certain networks, the country of Pietro Lazzeri proposes against money, ten billion CFA francs, to participate in the great national dialogue, those separatist Cameroonian terrorists identified in this country.

A big scam that can not pass when we know that the Prime Minister, Head of Government, Joseph Dion Ngute, is conducting wide consultations to collect the most diverse opinions, which will serve as a source of inspiration for the conduct of debates. Delegations were sent to the meeting of the diaspora without exception to allow it to contribute to these reflections on the resolution of the crisis.
