Did I See An Amba Boy Going To Be Executed? A Franklin Sone Bayen war report


I believe I saw Michael Akachi walk to his death. He was escorted to the “stake” by two armed soldiers of the Rapid Intervention Brigade (BIR). He just could not see his sympathizers or mourners watching, bemused at his final walk; he was blindfolded with a red piece of cloth. Neither could he give them a goodbye wave, though obviously hearing their voices and movements around; his hands were bound in front of him.

A few minutes later, he was dead. A phone call reaching his family a couple of hours later, dropped the bombshell that the body of Mami Agie Sunday’s son had been found somewhere near Ikiliwindi village, less than 20km from Kumba, along the Kumba-Mamfe road.

This is the story of the summary execution of a suspected combatant of the Ambazonia restoration forces or “Amba Boys” at Mabanda, just outside Kumba, along the Kumba-Mamfe road.

Our bus took off from Buea a couple of minutes after 2pm, Thursday, September 13, 2018. I was headed for my village Manyemen in Nguti subdivision, Kupe-Muanenguba division in the Southwest region, less than 70km from Kumba.

My multiple mission was to convey relief supplies from a humanitarian organization abroad destined for my village IDPs, which had been stuck for weeks in Douala as none of those assigned for the dispatch was ready to brave the gun battles infested Kumba-Mamfe Road.

This was a few days to the dreadful countdown to September 16, initial debut date of the announced lockdown ahead of October 1 (“Amba Independence” celebration) and October 7 (presidential election), when people were fleeing the Southwest and Northwest in droves, most of them to Francophone cities for sanctuary. I thought there was no better time to bring humanitarian supplies to our suffering people stuck in the forest.

Another reason for braving the Kumba-Mamfe road was to check on village home before the lockdown, especially after reports of soldiers breaking into homes hoping to find weapons.  But above all, as a journalist, that was an opportunity to jot some notes on the unfolding drama. I jotted a few.

A fraction of my fellow passengers were young women doing the reverse journey from Anglophone and Francophone cities to their villages to both support their ageing parents camping in the forest under precarious conditions, and to “enjoy” the safety of the forest at a time of uncertainty of what the city held for anyone, should the looming confrontations from the October lockdown snowball into the unknown.

Our driver began receiving advice and warnings against engaging our journey prior to our take off from Mile 17 park, Buea because, he was told, there had been skirmishes between Government forces and Amba Boys along the way. Arriving Muyuka, our driver transfered us into another bus that brought passengers from Kumba; a kind of passenger swap so that each driver engaged the stretch of road he mastered better.

Just over an hour into our journey, we ran into an unusual checkpoint. Two armed men in civilian clothes, all-black, with “necklaces” and other things that looked like amulets, flagged our bus. They told us to contribute to their effort. “We di fight na for wuna” (It’s your cause we are defending), they said. They urged us to make hey and drive on fast. The formalities done, we drove on.

Great was our surprise that, just around the bend, not quite 20 metres on, we were at the Mabonji “mixed control” checkpoint, the last before Kumba.

“So, they operate so close to each other?” a fellow passenger wondered. “It looks like they have come to an understanding to respect each other’s space until when there is combat,” said another. It was confusing.

Traffic controls, disembarkment in Kumba and other travel hassles, by 5pm, I was taking off from the Mabanda park right across town. A couple of minutes on, we were at the Mabanda checkpoint. We went through the now usual practice of alighting before the “gate”, being checked by officers, and embarking again across the gate. Three or four other vehicles had arrived the checkpoint from both sides, so there were more than a dozen passengers crisscrossing each other or loitering around the checkpoint.

Just then, I saw two BIR officers with guns, escorting a young man dressed in all-black. He was possibly taller than both of them. His eyes were bound with a piece of red cloth. His hands were apparently bound infront, handcuffed, maybe. I could not tell, watching them from behind.

They led him towards a right hand branch off, a few metres from the checkpoint facing Kumba. It led to the local GHS or GBHS Mabanda. I was told the military camped there. I could read gloom on the faces of three young women by me also watching, they too waiting to board their vehicle. I guessed their guess was my guess.

The driver told me he had noticed that young man sitting with soldiers under a shelter at the checkpoint when we arrived there, guessing he had been arrested and kept there for some time. It looked like they decided to take him away at that moment for the many passengers transiting at that time, to be eyewitnesses and travel with the word to serve as a deterrent to other young men.

I wished for a few more minutes there to take some more mental notes, but the driver said we had to get going because he had to return before nightfall with some passengers waiting in Nguti.

A few minutes on, just before we entered Ikiliwindi, about 10km from the checkpoint, we saw dead bodies on the road, some in culverts. The driver had to wabble through them carefully.

About 30 minutes later, between Konye and Supe, the village that precedes the flyover, we met another unusual all-black checkpoint. A single gunman. He was about done with a vehicle ahead of us when we arrived. When the formalities were done, he greeted me in a familiar tone. When I looked at him, surprised (or scared?), he laughed and said, “Brother, you surprise? I know you. I know you,” he said chuckling now as he walked away and we drove off.

Arriving Manyemen just before nightfall, I narrated the eyesaw of my journey to my acquaintances, the few village folks who braved it to stay on in the ghostly deserted village, mainly people selling fuel along the road or food to people camping at the famous Manyemen Hospital. I described the young man I had seen being taken away by the soldiers and what I guessed was his fate. “Someone said, ” Hmmn, I hope it’s not… hmmn, because that description and the colour of the dress, that could be… hmmn!” Someone else said, “Ha! Leave that your own. Anyone can be dressed in black and black.”

Next morning, Friday, September 14, a young lady walking towards me said, “Brother, hmmn, it looks like that boy you described yesterday is a boy from our village o! His sister has called that they say they have found his body somewhere around Ikiliwindi. He is the son of Mami Agie Sunday.”

The next time I met her, she said another call had disproved the story. But by noon, she told me again the death had been confirmed, that a family member had identified the body and plans were afoot to bury him there. Shortly after, a few women walked with Mami Agie Sunday in tears to the roadside, support her on both sides. They sat her down in front of the hospital gate to help her to find transport for the “funeral”.

In a small group apart, people took turns to narrate Michael Akachi’s last day. He had been living or working or farming in some village in Manyu division and had not been seen Manyemen for a while. That Thursday, he stopped over in the village to give some provisions to his mother before travelling on towards Kumba. At the roadside when he pulled out his wallet to pay his fare, something that looked like an amulet fell from his pocket. Onlookers, alarmed, said they warned him that could land him into trouble with Government defence and security forces who suspect such objects as the charms they believe are used by Amba Boys. They said they believed the amulets were found on Akanti at the Mabanda checkpoint, and that might have led to his arrest and his doom.

Amnesty International says release of 289 Ambazonians must lead to end of wrongful detentions


Following the decision to pardon and release 289 people arrested in connection with the unrest in the Anglophone regions of Cameroon, Marie Evelyne Petrus Barry, Amnesty International West and Central Africa Regional Director said:

“Cameroon President’s decision to pardon and release nearly 300 people arrested in connection with the unrest in the Anglophone regions is a welcome step and a catalyst for human rights change.

The release must not be the last in a country where many more people are languishing in jail simply for exercising their freedom of expression. We call on authorities to release them, including students Fomusoh Ivo Feh, Afuh Nivelle Nfor and Azah Levis Gob sentenced to 10 years for sharing a sarcastic joke on Boko Haram.

“Those released include human rights journalist Michel Biem Tong who will finally be reunited with his loved ones for the first time after nearly two months in detention.

“The release must not be the last in a country where many more people are languishing in jail simply for exercising their freedom of expression. We call on authorities to release them, including students Fomusoh Ivo Feh, Afuh Nivelle Nfor and Azah Levis Gob sentenced to 10 years for sharing a sarcastic joke on Boko Haram.

“Authorities should lay out clear steps to protect and respect human rights while guaranteeing that any wrongful detentions do not continue to take place.”

Background

On 13 December, Cameroon’s Defense Minister issued a statement announcing that 289 people who have been arrested for offences claimed to have been committed during the Anglophone crisis will be released, after being pardoned by the President.

This clemency is granted to people whose cases are pending in military courts and who have been arrested for offences claimed to have been committed during the Anglophone crisis. The Minister indicates that it would be granted where the military authorities had taken into account “the relative gravity of the charges”.

The document also states that it would neither be extended “to criminals, murderers or other dangerous terrorists” nor to “those involved in commanding or planning the damaging security crisis which is currently happening in the Northwest and Southwest regions”.

While welcoming by all means the release, Amnesty International is calling on authorities to also release all those people who are languishing in jail only for exercising their freedom of expression including Fomusoh Ivo Feh, Afuh Nivelle Nfor and Azah Levis Gob who were jailed to 10 years based solely on the text of an SMS joke on Boko Haram. The High Court of Yaoundé found the three students guilty of “non-denunciation of terrorism related information”. The three young men remain in prison while over 310,000 people across the globe wrote to President Paul Biya asking him to free them.

Freed Cameroonian detainees Ask for Release of Separatist Leaders


Barely 24 hours after being released from detention centers, some of the people accused of fighting for the creation of an English-speaking state in Cameroonhave called for the movement's leaders to be released if President Paul Biya wants peace in the country.

The detainees'release last week came after Biya ordered charges against them dropped.

Evelyn Ako, a mother of four, says she spent the night with her husband for the first time in 22 months. She says he was arrested in the English-speaking Southwest town of Mamfe and taken to Yaounde.

"With him besides me, we can work harder," she said. "He used to give me money to support my children but this year, they are in the house. They have not gone to school because of [his absence]. So this thing has disturbed us a lot. It has disturbed even our family because any money that we gather, we used it to buy foodstuff to go and give him. We use it to buy medicines, dresses."

Evelyn Ako relocated to Yaounde to help her husband and says they will only return to Mamfe when the crisis is over.

Joseph Cho, the spokesperson for the 120 people released from detention camps, said they are pleading with Biya to free their leaders.

"We have leaders. If these people are released, things will be better," Cho said. "Like Sissiku who [was] arrested because of this. We expected this decision long ago. Things would not have been the way it is now."

Sissiku is the name given to the leader of the Ambazonia separatist movement, Julius Ayuk Tabe. He was arrested in Abuja, Nigeria, with 46 of his collaborators and extradited last January to Cameroon. They face a possible death penalty on charges of secession, terrorism and attempting to destabilize Cameroon.

'Frank dialogue' needed

University of Yaounde political analyst Willibroad Ze Ngwa says if Biya frees the Anglophone leaders, peace likely will return to Cameroon.

"The most important should be releasing the leaders and engaging in frank dialogue with these people.I pray the head of state [president] should move us into 2019 with some sort of general amnesty so that Cameroonians should be able to live in total concord and harmony," Ngwa said.

Governor of the English-speaking Northwest region, Deben Tchoffo, says the government is open for dialogue and the separatists should disarm.

"Use all means at your level to convince your other mates to lay down their guns and to come back to normal civil life," Tchoffo said. "They will be well taken care of, they will be well treated, trained and even supported to ease their coming back to civil life."

Separatist insurgency

The separatist insurgency gained pace in 2017 following a government crackdown on peaceful protests by Anglophones, who complain of being marginalized by the French-speaking majority.

Biya was re-elected to a seventh term in October, and since then there has been pressure from the international community to start sincere dialogue with the separatists.

Last Thursday, U.S. Deputy Ambassador Jonathan Cohen told the U.N. Security Council that conditions in Cameroon's English-speaking Northwest and Southwest regions had highly deteriorated, and the United States wants an immediate end to violence and a speedy start to talks between the government and separatists.

Latest in Cameroon: Paul Biya's New Appointment " Meet Soumbou Angoula" the new DG of ENAM

The son of Angoula, Chantal Biya's Uncle who signed the marriage certificate of Chantal Biya as father.

Paul Biya signed yesterday evening several appointment decrees to reshuffle certain administrative services. And ENAM has not been spared.


Thus, the now new DG of ENAM is called, Soumbou Angoula, son of Angoula uncle Chantal Biya who signed the marriage certificate of Chantal Biya as father. The new DG is of the 2017 ENAM promotion. Entry of the judiciary in 2017.

Who is his father, the late Angoula Dieudonné?

The father, Angoula Dieudonné, former Director of Telecommunications at the Minpostel died after 10 years in prison. The president's father-in-law was serving a 20-year prison sentence in Kondengui for embezzling public funds in Mounchipougate.

In fact, the former director of telecommunications at the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications (Minpostel) had been staying at Yaoundé Kondengui Central Prison for more than ten years. He was arrested and detained in connection with the trial of the perpetrators of public embezzlement at Minpostel. Case named at the time Mounchipougate, named after the minister, himself imprisoned. Until his arrest on Monday, September 6, 1999, Dieudonné Angoula managed the lines of credits concerning the acquisition of targets and accessories. He initiated numerous orders and orders that gave rise to fictitious services, he proceeded to the choice of suppliers including his nephew Pythagoras Mveng. The verdict falls on November 28, 2003: a 20-year prison sentence.

The 60 years gone, Dieudonné Angoula, according to testimonies, was not well since the death of his wife there are almost two years. Even though he had remarried recently. This native of Nanga-Eboko in Haute-Sanaga was especially presented as the father-in-law of the Cameroonian head of state, in view of his affiliation with the first lady Chantal Biya.

Some time before his death, the eight persons found guilty of embezzling public funds at the Minpostel had submitted to the Supreme Court a review of their situation. They include Mounchipou Séidou, Meli Ngninzeko Chrispo, Marthe Nadine Ongolo born Nsizoa, Emmanuel Bayiga, Jean Ngou and of course, Dieudonné Angoula. The latter then referred them to the Court of Appeal of the Center because it evoked a formal defect.

He died following an attack in prison according to the testimony of a prison guard. The appointment of his son to the post of DG of ENAM sounds like a recognition for Paul Biya son of his stepfather.

Cameroon Crisis: Sweden reacts to the ongoing Southern Cameroon crisis at the just concluded UNSC council


The Representative of the Swedish Government to the United Nations, Ambassador Olof Skoong expressed deep concern over the ongoing Anglophone crisis in Southern Cameroons.


Meeting at the just concluded UNSC, the Ambassador said regional peace and security at risk in the country.


" UN office in Central Africa key tool for preventive diplomacy. Situation in Cameroon of deep concern with grave violence, Human Right violations, massive displacement, distrust and humanitarian crisis. Fight against Boko Haram and regional peace and security at risk in the country".  Ambassador Olof Skoong

UN envoy remains concerned about Southern Cameroons violence


The UN envoy for Central Africa on Thursday said he remained concerned with the situation in the northwest and southwest regions of Cameroon and reaffirmed the UN’s commitment to the territorial integrity and unity of the country.

In recent months, fighting between the separatists and Cameroon’s forces has sent hundreds of thousands of people fleeing, with hundreds of people killed in the two English-speaking regions in the largely Francophone country.

“Violence has not diminished, and allegations of human rights violations by all sides continue to be reported,” Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Central Africa Francois Lounceny Fall told the Security Council.

“Several schools remain closed in the southwest and northwest regions. I am particularly conceded with the effect of the crisis on women and children,” he said.

Fall recalled his visit to Cameroon in late November where he had met with key government officials and stressed to all actors the necessity for inclusive dialogue as a constructive and sustainable way forward for a peaceful resolution of the crisis.

In this regard, he appealed to the Cameroonian government to continue to safeguard access by humanitarian partners to the populations in need and to ensure that all human rights violations are addressed.

Fall said he was encouraged by the government’s commitment to putting in place plans to address the root causes of the crisis, including through accelerated decentralization and the activities of the National Commission for the Promotion of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism.

Cameroon’s Anglophone separatists sprang up last year from peaceful protests against the alleged marginalization of English-speakers in the country.

Since November, government forces have been clashing with the separatists who want the two regions to secede from the nation and to form a new country called “Ambazonia.”

Serail: how Chantal Biya delivered Ngoh Ngoh to Paul Biya


During the CoMipcam chaired by the Prime Minister a few days ago to take stock of what has not worked in the preparations for the CAN 2019, Bidoung Mkpatt alias Mini Pam has made a real indictment against the organizers.

What is written in the letter that you can see opposite has nothing to do with the virulent words he addressed during the meeting at the Primature. Unusual facts, he attacked and attacked as rarely a minister did in the presence of the PM, Philemon Yang.

Behind this offensive, Mini Pam PAM was doing her job: posting the SGPR, Ferdinand NGOH NGOH with the permission of the First Lady.

For several months, it is she who serves as a transmission belt between him and Paul Biya. After each inspection of the CAF, the native of Nanga Eboko secretly sent a report to the head of state via the first lady.

More seriously, being from the same village as Ngoh Ngoh, he had managed to infiltrate his closest entourage to the point of knowing everything that was happening at the general secretariat.

It is in this logic that the text read and distributed to participants in the meeting of the CoMipcam has previously obtained the presidential approval. Become public enemy number 1, the SGPR tried somehow to neutralize it. The last attempt was the visit of Ahmad and Eto'o to the Head of State. The SGPR had ensured the shelving of Mini Pam who paradoxically did not attend the hearing.

Following the debacle suffered by the non-organization of the CAN in 2019, we now understand the great confidence felt by the actor in the face of threats of reshuffle cabinet. Convinced to have alerted the presidential couple in time on the excesses of the gang Ngoh Ngoh, Mini Pam knows himself untouchable.

What about Seraphin Magloire Fouda and Ayem Monger NGOH NGOH companions who have not yet said their last words. The next hours are succulent.

Tomorrow: Revelations on the purchase of CAN material for CRTV. Or how Tchiroma, Seraphin Fouda and NGOH NGOH have tried to collect more than 3 billion FCFA retro commissions.

War in Ambazonia: the heavy secret of Biya and his ministers finally reveals

In its latest report, published on December 10, 2018, Amnesty International raises alarm bells on the human rights situation in Cameroon. 


Franklin Mowha, national president of Frontline Fighters for Citizens' Interests (FFCI) and member of the Network of Human Rights Defenders in Central Africa (Redhac) has been missing since 6 August 2018, when he had his last exchanges telephone with his wife and colleagues from the Azim Hotel, located in Kumba, in the Southwest Region. Franklin Mowha traveled to Kumba on 2 August 2018 to carry out a mission to document cases of human rights violations in the context of the socio-political crisis in the North West and South West regions.

In Amnesty International's annual report, published on Monday (December 10th), the Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) reports that Mowha's case is emblematic of "the violent crackdown by the government, which does not want to let anything leak. persistent clashes between the army and armed separatist organizations in the English-speaking regions ".

In a previous report published on November 29, 2018, the NGO noted that restrictions on freedom of expression mark "a worrying signal" of President Paul Biya's new term. According to the report, "at least six journalists" have been arrested across the country in recent weeks "mainly following the publication of critical information to the Cameroonian authorities" regarding the management of the so-called Anglophone crisis.

"Because of the arrests, it is becoming increasingly difficult for independent journalists and members of civil society to play their role safely while in the current context the information, dialogue and participation of all components of society are essential, "said Emilie Leroux, Cameroon Project Manager (CCFD-Terre Solidaire).

Operation Sparrowhawk: NKotto Émane and Issa Tchiroma soon to Kondengui


This is a question that teases the spirits in the entourage of the current CEO of CAMTEL who does not miss the opportunity to recall that he has done much for the family of the head of state and the regime's pundits offering employment to their wives or recruiting their children. Moreover, one of the sons of Martin Belinga Eboutou, former director of the civil cabinet, was in his direct cabinet, in charge of his security and used this position to take money from young Cameroonians, promising to be recruited at CAMTEL. Some paid and were never recruited. Beyond the silver suitcases one can understand the close bond that bound him to TOM DOLLAR.

But an interesting fact seems to have happened today. Paul Biya visited the Chinese company Huawei strongly committed to telecommunications in Cameroon in the absence of David NKotto Emane, the boss of CAMTEL where Huawei has invested money and works closely with the government. Is not it surprising?

For, at the same time, Paul Biya visited the headquarters of startimes engaged in the rehabilitation of the Crtv and the TNT project in the presence of Charles Ndongo without Issa Tchiroma. Recall nevertheless about Chiroma that during one of his returns from China after a visit to the headquarters of Startimes, Chinese airport police had discovered huge amounts of currency in the gandouras of the Minister of Communication.

It is important to note, however, that David NKOTTO Émane is currently banned from leaving the country, as well as 7 other people at CAMTEL. CAMTEL's Dg currently relies on MVONDO Ayolo, whom he nevertheless called lazy. He recently had his sister named. As to say even to men we are charming.

However Biya can not stop NKOTTO Emane without relieving him of his duties as General Manager.

Etoudi no longer affraid of Paul Biya, Says Messanga Nyamding

Professor Messanga Nyamding is an academic, a member of the CPDM's ruling party, the ruling party, he is one of the early activists and "biysist" engaged. He says to total more than 30 years of fidelity to the regime of renewal.


In another exit on Facebook, the politician again draws red ball on his comrades of the party, the "plotters of inside", "Gangsters who plunder Cameroon , and are no longer afraid of President Biya »

Since the beginning of the year 2004 I have constantly denounced the state conspiracy in Cameroon in the form of a scientific coup d'etat. This strategy of mafia clans is to trivialize the multiple frustrations that are the victims of Cameroon by reducing their standard of living to incite them to revolt against the Renewal regime.

Clientism and ambush governance are the pillars of this state conspiracy that I have demonstrated and denounced.  This one is maintained by the direct collaborators of the Head of the State who have only one objective: to leave SE Paul BIYA of the power by the small door evacuating the rigor and the moralization in the management of the affairs of State.

To reach this macabre objective, they do not skimp on any means for proof, many structuring projects are sempiternellement at the half-mast, diversions multiply with the great contempt of the presidential announcements, their henchmen occupy all the public and private administrations: the markets of the CAN is the ninth living proof that President Paul BIYA no longer scares them.

We went from an internalized scientific coup d'état to an outsourced scientific coup d'état, that is to say turned towards the international.

These gangsters with no heart for business, but certainly powerists who have taken over the administration and the ruling party, the CPDM, are consistent in their strategy: to convince the International Opinion that President Paul BIYA is the "pilot of a boat in turmoil "unable to take things in hand in Cameroon.

These irresponsible people who shame us by bringing discredit to us are in fact delivering the biyaists with reason to the popular vindictiveness.

The failure and embezzlement inherent in the CAN 2019 is undoubtedly the scandal of the century in Cameroon. The mobsters and the obscurantists, masters of the great networks of all kinds who occupy functions of power and decision destroyed the State and do not intend to stop in this good way: they control the power, and it is no longer a legend, they want effective power without Paul BIYA and a few honest people who still believe in him.

How to understand that these masters singing networks go to jail for the past ten years but the misappropriation of funds and the kleptomania state does not stop?Are the networks more powerful than the intelligence of the Cameroonians? How to understand that concerning CAN 2019, 690 billion public markets were carried out by mutual agreement?

Is this true what we mean here? In the mirror of these serious and unforgivable facts, I invite Cameroonians all sensibilities combined; political, ethnic, religious and intergenerational to remain united and mobilized for the good cause: say no to prevarication.

It is only at this price that we will overcome beyond our partisan quarrels, the thugs and acrobats who play with our state.

We will have thus proved that Cameroon is not the property of certain individuals, but on the contrary a common heritage of sharing and redistribution of resources to all the children of this country.

The management of the CAN markets is an indelible historical opportunity providing tangible proof that some compatriots have lost all human sense, respect for others, modesty and responsibility.

As for us biaisists, shame and humiliating frustration have taken hold of us, because the drop of water really broke the camel's back.

BREAKING - Ambazonia: The United States has Called on Reconciliatory Dialogue Between the Cameroon Government and Separatists


At the end of UNSC council that held hours ago, The United States called for an immediate and broad-based reconciliatory dialogue, without pre-conditions, between the Government of Cameroon and separatists in the Northwest and Southwest Regions.


Remarks at a UN Security Council Briefing on the Central African Region

Ambassador Jonathan Cohen

U.S. Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations

U.S. Mission to the United Nations

New York City

December 14, 2018

AS DELIVERED

Merci, Monsieur Le Président.

Special Representative Fall and Director Ghelani, thank you for your briefings today. Your work is vital to a region facing a wide range of political, economic, and social challenges, particularly in Cameroon, on which I will focus my remarks.

The security and humanitarian conditions in Cameroon’s northwest and southwest regions have significantly deteriorated since the last UNOCA briefing to the Security Council in June. Violence continues to escalate, obstructing vital humanitarian aid delivery to over 430,000 IDPs and blocking health and education services to rural children.

Mr. President, October was the most violent month on record in Cameroon in recent years, and judging from anecdotal reports, we fear that November will surpass October as the bloodiest month on record. We don’t want to see that horrible trend continue again this month, December. The violence must stop now.

Violence between government and Anglophone separatists has resulted in killings and abductions of civilians, including a U.S. missionary who was killed on October 30. Faced with mounting insecurity, tens of thousands of Cameroonians have fled to neighboring Nigeria, as we’ve heard, while hundreds of thousands have been internally displaced and need humanitarian assistance.

The stakes in Cameroon are too high for this crisis to continue unaddressed. Cameroon remains an essential security partner in the fight against Boko Haram and the Islamic State in West Africa, including as a member of the Multi National Joint Task Force. The continuing crisis threatens to detract from our mutual security objectives in the Lake Chad Basin.

Mr. President, the United States calls for an immediate and broad-based reconciliatory dialogue, without pre-conditions, between the Government of Cameroon and separatists in the Northwest and Southwest Regions. We urge all sides to forswear violence, to restore peace, and to resolve their grievances through political dialogue.

We note that in his inaugural address on November 6, President Biya expressed confidence that “there is an honorable way out in everyone’s interest.” We encourage President Biya to make good on his commitment to accelerate the decentralization process and adopt the recommendations of the Cameroonian Commission on Bilingualism and Multiculturalism.

The creation of a government-led humanitarian assistance coordination center is a promising development. However, the government has done little to address concerns over its own lack of respect for humanitarian principles of neutrality and impartiality and the guarantees of unhindered access to conflict-affected populations. We urge the Government of Cameroon to prioritize respect for humanitarian principles and to ensure unobstructed access for UN agencies and humanitarian NGOs assisting conflict-affected populations.

Mr. President, the United States believes that UNOCA – through the good offices of Special Representative Fall – could provide technical assistance and mediation support to facilitate a broad-based reconciliatory dialogue without pre-conditions. We hope that ECCAS, the AU’s Peace and Security Council, and the AU Commission will enhance their efforts to support the peace process, and we encourage them to coordinate with UNOCA in this effort.

A peaceful and stable Cameroon is critical to regional stability in Central Africa and both deserves and requires the continued and close attention of this Council. As noted by our Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs last week, the last thing we need, given the challenges in the region, is for a disproportionate response by security forces to result in the growing radicalization and hardening of separatist groups.

Mr. President, in our August PRST, the Security Council called for a strategic review of UNOCA’s mandate by August 1, 2019. We look forward in the coming months to further discussions to make sure that UNOCA’s mandate is appropriately focused on the most pressing political challenges in the central African region and well-coordinated with the four UN missions operating in the same geographic area to ensure that our efforts have maximum impact and maximum efficiency.


Thank you, Mr. President.

BIR discovers a Nigerian village in the Far West Cameroon


Yeme! It is a place that says nothing to anyone and for good reason it does not exist. It is the soldiers of Operation Alpha du Bir who made the revelation earlier this week. During a search mission, commandos in the central area of ​​Operation Alpha came across a curious gathering. They were about 30km from Kossa and were only concerned about meeting Boko Haram fighters or ferocious animals escaped from the nearby Waza National Park.

Only, it was not the case. In a cautious approach, they observed that it was a peaceful hamlet of visibly unarmed people. A village that, however, does not appear on their highly-staffed staff cards.After information to authorized sources, the village does not appear either in the registers of the territorial administration.They are very cautiously approached the boxes. They discovered a whole world.Men and women of all ages, children, well-groomed herds, freshly harvested fields. They interviewed in Kanuri the inhabitants. The portal of the Cameroonian diaspora of Belgium. They had arrived at Yeme. The village is organized. They have a leader who has introduced himself meekly to the military. He made the conversation with Lieutenant Colonel Ndikum Azieh, the commander of the central area of ​​Operation Alpha. The chief explained that the village is called Yeme. He said they are Nigerian nationals from the city of Bama and its surroundings.

It was in 2014. They were reported to have fled Boko Haram fighters. In August of that year, the sect seized Bama. They chased the military. The populations were in disarray. The terrorists multiplied exactions and monstrosities to provoke the absolute terror, the amazement.  The local populations that the jihadists invaded had little choice: to rally to the cause, to be slaughtered in front of his family, to be buried alive or to flee. Many chose to flee.It was every man for himself, but we ended up finding each other, finding each other and recognizing each other. The info clear and sharp. Affinity was organized to organize the escape more effectively. They wanted to go inside Nigeria first, but Boko Haram cut their way. They decided to go west to Cameroon. They walked for a long time with the animals they were able to gather and the things they could take away. They arrived in Kossa, in the district of Mora.

Kossa's lamido, to whom they would have sought refuge, would have indicated to them a corner far from the village where they could settle until security came back.They began to settle and remained quite discreet. In more than four years, Yeme has never been officially reported. Life went on peacefully. They sell their crops at the Djabire market. The military carried out a count of the inhabitants: more than 800 men, women and children populate Yeme.The raking of the weekend is not fortuitous. Boko Haram has a revival of activities since the end of the rainy season. Fighters with a firepower believed to be lost attacked the Nigerian military bases of Rann, Zari, Kumshe, Gambaru.

They put routed the Nigerian army and killed several soldiers and civilians. In Cameroon, they trapped the Gouzda Vreket road by planting a mine on which an Operation Alpha patrol jumped. They also sent kamikazes who failed to Boudoua near Limani last week. They mostly have predatory activity along the border. They loot isolated hamlets in search of food and medicine. However, a more dangerous activity has been reported to the Cameroonian authorities. Boko Haram buys ammunition in Chad and routes it across Cameroon to Waza. The military therefore decided to clear the border areas where residual forces of the sect hang.

They want to dismantle hamlets like Yeme, Madina, Njamina.. populated by Nigerian nationals illegally installed in Cameroon. It is feared that in the long run, Nigerians will settle down and claim the fields they work and declare them their own, as was the case with the Bakassi Peninsula.

Sparrowhawk: Paul Biya now wants to audit mobile operators


It is the quintessence of a correspondence of the Minister Secretary General of the Presidency addressed to the Minister in charge of the Superior State Control.

The signed letter of Ferdinand Ngoh Ngoh, dated December 10, 2018. It is addressed to the Minister Delegate to the Presidency in charge of the Superior State Control, Rose Mbah Acha. In the subject we can read "Audit of concessions made to Orange Cameroon, MTN Cameroon and NEXTELL".

The Secretary-General of the Presidency informs his colleague of the CONSUPE of the "high directives of the Head of State ... to set up an inter-ministerial team in order to to audit the mobile telephony operators indicated in the subject".

The team will be composed of representatives of several administrations (Justice, Finance, Posts and Telecommunications, General Delegation for National Security, State Secretariat for Defense in charge of the Gendarmerie and the Telecommunications Regulatory Agency). Each of the parties of the said administrations has received a copy of the correspondence.

Paul Biya instructs an audit at the moment the mobile network is experiencing major disruptions. Mobile phone subscribers are experiencing an increasing deterioration in the quality of communication: when it is not a question of call interruption, it is access that is limited to social networks or the phenomenon of disappearance of credit that takes place.

The general director of the ART Philémon Zoo Zame explained recently that "the degradation of the communications is related to the works of the civil engineering which cause incidents on the optical fiber from which the operators are interconnected ". The regulator says that disillusioned subscribers can register their complaints at 1515.

Tribalism: the founder of the Marie Albert College declares war on the Bamileke


In an audio, EZE Marie Albert, founder of the school group that bears her name, indicates that the Bamileke are destabilizing Cameroon and have no right to quote in Yaounde, his hometown. Before we started recording her statements, she claimed that the Bamileke people are "boko haram" and that they must all be driven out of Yaounde. What she forgets is that her main customers are from this tribe that she claims to fight with the last energy. Starting today, we are launching a campaign against the Marie Albert institutions. Until she apologizes publicly for this behavior bordering on hatred and division.

THE ORIGIN OF THIS DECLARATION.

Last Friday, our colleague Zephirin KOLOKO, director of the publication of the newspaper "L'Avenir" went to the College Marie Albert located in Ekounou district in Yaoundé. He was accompanied by one of his medical friends at the Yaoundé emergency center. It was for an appointment at the request of the founder of this establishment who wanted to give his version of the facts in relation to the complaints of parents and teachers of his school group. This before the publication of the article. Indeed, the writing of the newspaper was seized by parents who lament the beatings coupled with the degrading and inhuman treatment of their children by the staff of this school. Teachers accuse the founder of hitting them often by hand and cutting their pay without justification. "As soon as we arrived at his establishment, we were identified by his secretary who announced us.

The founder receives us and is available to answer our questions. She said she was waiting for us at the office. She normally answers our first question, but from the second question, she says that the journalist is not a judge. I told him who my name was KOLOKO, a journalist including the one who asks the questions. Elle tells me that in addition I am Bamileke. She says that she is at home in Yaoundé and that she has relations with the authorities and money too. And that she hates the Bamileke who invaded their capital and we have to go home. I ask her to call who she wants and that I will see who will stop me because I came to ask for his version of the facts or because I am Bamileke.

She calls one of her "friends" magistrate who would have asked her to answer just our questions. Humiliated, she asks me to be identified again. I oppose his request categorically because I got identified when I arrived at the scene. That's when she breaks the phone of my friend's doctor and threatens to slap me like his teachers. I ask him to do it. She reminds me again that she has money. And she will call the commissioner. I ask her to call who she still wants. She contacts the commissioner. The latter arrives. The founder explains that I refuse to introduce myself. The commissioner asks her for the identification register of the visitors she could not present. This register does not exist in passing.

Faced with my categorical refusal to be identified again in front of this woman sulphurous, the Commissioner wished that we go to do it in his office at the police station of the 14th district. At the police station, they wanted us to target a PV whose object is trading influence. I refused to do so because no one has ever lodged a complaint against me. To my surprise, two school officials came to "see" the commissioner as we were preparing to leave the school. So goes Cameroon, "said our colleague zephirin KOLOKO
