Secret meeting in Etoudi: Paul Biya asked to step down from power by the International communities to save Cameroon from Civil War

Moussa Faki Mahamat of the African Union, Patricia Scotland of the Commonwealth and Louise Mushikiwabo of the International Organization of La Francophonie met President Paul Biya privately in Yaoundé and insisted that he give up power.

Our intelligence officer in Yaounde said the meeting, which was attended by representatives of the US and French embassies in Yaoundé, was held in a secret location. US diplomats delivered a clear and firm message that the only way to free the Republic of Cameroon from the civil war was for Biya, 86, to step down. 

The secret meeting took place after a televised meeting with Prime Minister Dion Ngute in which the Cameroonian public media, CRTV, reported that Biya was still in the good graces of the West and that his troops were gaining strength. restoration of Ambazonia for the control of the rich oil region of southern Cameroon. 

The interim government of South Cameroon announced last week the creation of the Bank of Ambazonia, which was followed by the appointment of the governor of the bank by Vice President Dabney Yerima, which would give a boost to the campaign of total and total independence of South Cameroon.

The Secretary General to the Presidency of the Republic, Ferdinand Ngoh Ngoh, was heard after the meeting that the Biya regime would have welcomed the discussions, but only without preconditions. 

The Franco-Cameroonian army has changed tactics several times during the fighting in southern Cameroon since the beginning of the uprising of Ambazonia, nearly four years ago. 

State television, aimed at countering claims that the Biya regime was collapsing, broadcast images of ordinary life in southern Cameroon with students apparently returning to school. Biya refuses to withdraw despite pressure from the United States and the European Union.

Anglophone Crisis: UN condemns the brutal killing of one of its volunteers in North West

Pascal Ngwayi, from UN partner COMINSUD, was kidnapped on Saturday, November 30, 2019, then killed by unknown gunmen in Donga Mantung, a northwestern town in the grip of clashes between armed forces. order and security and secessionist fighters from Ambazonia.

According to local sources, the victim was conducting a humanitarian assessment to ensure that those in need were receiving timely and appropriate support. 

The UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Cameroon, Allegra Baiocchi, said in a statement on Sunday, December 1, 2019, that she strongly condemned the killing of this humanitarian worker in northwestern Cameroon. 

"I am deeply saddened by the news of the horrendous execution of a humanitarian worker last night. On behalf of the United Nations and the wider humanitarian community, our deepest condolences go out to his family, friends and colleagues, "said Baiocchi. Before stating that "Humanitarian workers risk everything to help those most in need. They must be respected and protected, not targeted. The continuation of attacks on humanitarian workers only adds to the suffering of civilians because we can not conduct operations safely. Deliberate targeting of aid and humanitarian workers is a war crime. The United Nations reiterates its call to all armed actors to ensure the protection of humanitarian workers, to fully respect international humanitarian and human rights law, and to respect the humanitarian principles of humanity, neutrality, independence and impartiality. "

Residents of the region accuse the Cameroonian army of being responsible for the assassination, saying that armed groups fighting for the independence of the English-speaking zone do not attack United Nations volunteers.

Anglophone Area: administrative services reportedly empty

The Cameroonian government is facing the phenomenon of desertion of civil servants in the English-speaking regions in crisis. Job losses have increased in the two northwestern and southwestern regions, while state employees are targeted for kidnapping and assassination.

Officials from all sectors play the absent subscribers. In some schools that have only name, health centers, departmental delegations, boroughs and other services and structures this situation of discomfort is experienced and clearly poses the issue of the assignments of the state staff. 

In the run-up to the February 2020 legislative and municipal elections, the security situation in the NOSO remains "disrupted by multiple attacks against government forces," said a local administrative authority who requested anonymity. 

In the two English-speaking regions, it is mainly civilians who are suffering: hostages, killings, looting and village fires. 

Speaking on this issue, a local authority under the seal of anonymity states "we have seen the upsurge of this phenomenon in some towns and villages of NOSO". 

To the question of why NOSO is so scary to civil servants, no objective explanation is provided by those concerned. Several other sources mention security reasons

State agent Emmanuel Ako says "I arrived here in Kumba in 2018. I found colleagues who complained about the climate of insecurity in the city." 

The fact is clear. The worm is in the fruit. Public servants and public officials take the key fields refusing to work in English-speaking regions. 

Recall that the Cameroonian government is facing the phenomenon of desertion and refusal of officials to take service in the English-speaking regions, became theaters of confrontations between army and separatists. 

Job losses are increasing in both regions and state personnel are targeted for kidnappings and killings 

We still remember the kidnapping of the sub-prefect of the district of Batibo on February 11, 2017, of which we are still without news.

CPDM elections: war is waged between elites in Etoudi

Put in front of the scene in favor of his appointment to the post of DCC, Samuel Mvondo Ayolo, never stops undergoing the fire fed by the affidés of his predecessor who do not miss any opportunity to vilify him by transferring the facts weapon of the latter who was reputed in forgery and use of forgery, as evidenced by the many scandals that have furnished his magisterium. Otherwise, how to explain this cabal in order against him for two weeks where mixing free jealousy and nostalgia, the affidés or those who take the place, are literally to regret the prebends that distributed to them by turn their demiurge to shoot red balls on his successor by affixing it with all the names of birds.

In their posthumous kilav exercise, they do not take offense at grooming their language, which betrays their visceral hatred of the DCC; hoping to rehabilitate a memory that many Cameroonians want to see forever erased, given the multiform crimes that have been attributed to him and the most abject are not those of the prelates of the Catholic Church which he will be yet served as a screen to silence his insanities. fortunately, by tracing the rather tortuous course of the one he would like us to celebrate beyond the grave, we rather realize that it will have been just a curiosity in the wake of the Head of State that we know looking on the intrinsic quality of his close associates, as Samuel Mvondo Ayolo is ineluctably unlike his predecessor of whom we know nothing, except when he is credited with any academic course, sanctioned by any parchment. In other words, two rather antinomic personalities that only the function would have approximated somewhat.

Moreover, his rather sulphurous past earned him an unprecedented sanction, the refusal for the Catholic Church, which he said he would serve while he was raging there at the requiem Mass that was to be held in the minor Basilica of Mvolyé. but between villainous crimes like that of the young student Narcisse Olivier Djomo (sodomized then defenestrated the eighth floor of the Yaounde Hilton on August 21, 2006). This one will have written the darkest pages of the Civil Cabinet relegating Language Thopni of sad reputation to the rank of apprentice sorcerer. And, to further darken the picture, we are presented with drums and bugle as a "Principal Civilian Outside Scale." Second achievement worthy of a perpetual last class, having managed to alienate the power and authority traditionally recognized at all CCD.

Elections 2020: What is Maurice Kamto preparing for Paul Biya?

Never forget that the power of Yaoundé organized the political death of the MRC through a construction of the correspondences between the existence of the MRC and the specter of an insurrection.

The government is working tirelessly to criminalize the membership of the MRC, the production of a fright vis-à-vis this party. The permanent logic of constructing the figure of the inner enemy is the object of the strategy of the political elimination of the party of Maurice KAMTO. 

But what needs to be understood is the increasingly outdated nature of this strategy in the age of communication. Government communication lacks coherence, since the elimination of a political actor consists in the ability to put it out of the spotlight, but in this case the MRC is the target of the projectors, including and especially at the time of its expulsion to the margin of the race track. The image corresponds to regiments of commandos tirelessly firing at the shell on a hearse. 

Never have any political party and politician been so slandered as the MRC and its leader. The arrest and incarceration of the latter and the militants with the relevant role proceeded from a maneuver of political killing through methods of humiliation and designation of the social deviant. Except that on the contrary, the mixtures and confusion between the political scene and the scene of cannibalism have had the opposite effect. 

The political scene is a scene of adversity and not a scene of enmity. The resulting confusion has shown that even after organizing the death of a political actor, it is constantly demonized, humiliated, accused of the failures of several decades of governance.

Hold an illustration, the day the first vice-president of the MRC is seized and tortured at the central prison of Yaoundé after the movement of mood of the prisoners, what was the interest to take in image and publish this photo of Mamadou MOTA naked, abused and in a bad way, if not to humiliate him. 

Only the feeling of bitterness and sadness aroused in a fit of pity enhanced the victim and his party in a spirit of solidarity that transposed this image to that of Patrice Emery LUMUMBA in a similar situation. As a result, the mobilization of the national hero categories is granted to the actors of the MRC. Political prison as a major lever of dictatorships has been tamed and transformed as a leaven for national and international endowment for the MRC and its leader as a political party. It is a verifiable fact that the peaks in membership growth inserted in the MRC correspond to the periods of incarceration, liberation of the militant political prisoners of the MRC. 

When this political party decided, against all odds, not to take part in the local elections of February 9, 2020, some people soon described this choice as suicidal. But the reasons for the non-participation are so intelligible and perceptible by all that the Cameroonians in a progressive majority recognize themselves in this decision of the MRC. It is not an empty boycott, but a conditioning on which the territorial and popular integrity of the country depends. This is the serious resolution of the NOSO crisis through an inclusive dialogue with relevant actors and topics, including the topic on the form of the state. It is also the reform of the electoral system through the adoption of a consensual electoral code. 

If not, how does a party that commits suicide incite adhesions and the creation of new units?

Attack on Camair aircraft: this is what really happened!

A plane of the national airline was attacked this December 1st during his landing, if this attack did not make a victim, it is reported that in this part of the country a humanitarian agent was killed, probably the resultant of the lack of outcome for the crisis.

The Amba boys are, without a doubt, more and more tense of the two-speed daily life of Cameroon. While they still want to make their ideas prevail, it is in elections and other muffled meetings that the eight other regions of the country take care of. The fury of the separatist fighters was first attacked on a plane MA60 Camair-Co this Sunday. 

The aircraft registered TJQDB from Douala landed in Bamenda in the stroke of 9:30 GMT with 28 passengers on board. He is greeted by heavy gunfire. The agility of the pilots will have been beneficial for the crew. 

Commander Marcel Bonda (Cameroon) and co-pilot Obiang (Gabonese) performed a maneuver that allowed them to land without difficulty. After inspecting the aircraft, they noticed a bullet impact in the luggage compartment. An official statement from the company confirmed that there are no casualties, but the device should be unavailable for days or even weeks. In the same area, the irreparable happened. The coordinator of the United Nations System in Cameroon announced on her account tweeter the killing of a humanitarian agent.

Allegra Baiocchi said, "This unacceptable murder must be condemned by all. The humanitarian family in Cameroon is united in its determination to help those in need. ". A determination that has nothing to discourage armed groups. There are good reasons to believe that their wrath is due to the ostentatious negligence granted by the regime in place to their situation. 

So we could have had more than thirty dead this day. Biya probably wants to see more blood flowing to try rational or interface measures as usual.

Lawyer strike: Jean de Dieu Momo very angry with his colleagues, he said Bar is not a political party

Jean de Dieu Momo is fed up with the repetitive strikes of his fellow lawyers. Faced with their new strike to denounce the inconsistencies of the bill on tribalism, he is still in the niche to reframe. In his release, the minister reminds men of rights to conscientiousness and denounces the nicknames "politicians sheltered in the dresses of Lawyers" who harm the corporation.

Below, its output

My dear colleagues, the Bar President says that the Bar is not a political party and I add neither a counter power. The Barreau's vocation is to defend purely professional interests. But the reality is different. A bill on the promotion of official languages ​​is being studied in Parliament. Our confreres, having been informed by people who manipulate them, set out to defend purely political causes, training thousands of confreres and citizens in battles that do not concern them in the first place, in the absence of organized political parties. 

The National Assembly represents our people from whom it is the emanation and I can testify that it discusses firm there to be myself past it. Are we moving towards a democracy of street protests? Why does the permanent threat of markets and other boycotts take precedence over dialogue and consultation? Why always the way of the struggle against the power that one tries to erect falsely as an enemy of his people? Let's build or destroy our country doing it. 

In any case, it is clear that some politicians sheltered in the dresses of Lawyers enlisted the Bar of Cameroon for unacknowledged political objectives. In doing so they hinder those like me who are acquired and devoted to the cause of our country by posing as the enemies of our people.

Port of Douala: the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Bolloré

The administrative chamber of the Supreme Court rejected the power of the Autonomous Port of Doula against the group APM / BOLLORE.

Indeed, the BOLLORE-APM consortium had appealed to the administrative court of Douala to contest its exclusion in January 2019 from the market of selection of companies to manage the container terminal of the main port platform of Cameroon. The administrative court ruled in favor of the Bollore group on August 16, 2019. The Port Authority of Douala decided to contest the decision with the Administrative Chamber of the Supreme Court. 

While the judgment is suspended, a dramatic twist. On 16 September 2019, Cyrus Ngo, CEO of the Douala Port Authority announced that it is the Swiss company TIL in business with Cameroonian billionaire Baba Hamadou DANPULLO (Allias Ali Baba) who will now manage the PAD. It was without counting on the power of the Bollore networks.

Soon Biya frees Maurice Kamto and the political detainees and gets an appointment with Emmanuel Macron. After Paul Biya's stay in France where he met the French President, Paul Biya instructed NGOH NGOH in October 2019 to ask the government to suspend the awarding of the Douala container port contract to the Swiss group TIL. This is the disaster in a group of senior officials involved in a case of more than 2 billion retrocommissions for the granting of the PAD to the Swiss company. 

The TIL contract was to begin in January 2020. The decision of the administrative chamber of the Supreme Court puts things back on track. A fight to the death is on the horizon.

Here is the strategic man of the Yaoundé regime against Field Marshall

Former commander-in-chief of "Field Marshall", the boss of the armed group Red Dragons who controls the Lebialem (South-West Anglophone), "General Ayeke", announced for death on March 21 by the communication division of the Cameroonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Defense, is today at the head of an armed group called "Gorilla Fighters" based in the locality of Alou, in Lebialem.

In a video currently circulating on social networks, General Ayeke, a former soldier of the Rapid Intervention Battalion (BIR), an elite unit of the Cameroonian army, announces that he and his men have waged a victorious battle against troops of the Cameroonian army. But in the same video, he accuses his ex-boss Field Marshall of terrorizing people during a mourning, kidnapped for ransom and raped girls in front of their families. 

This attitude of General Ayeke is actually the implementation of the plan developed by the regime of Paul Biya through the Division of Military Security, his military intelligence service, to destroy the Dragons RE. As we have explained to you many times in our writings, the sinister Emile Bamkoui, the boss of this villainous crime laboratory known by the acronym SEMIL, has put in place a plan to break the unity in the revolt of the English-speaking people . The behavior of Ayeke is one of the variations of this plan. 

The goal of Ayeke and his group is to systematically attack (physically or by video) Field Marshall and destroy the reputation of the latter considered the beast of power of Yaounde. As a reminder, General Ayeke is very close to the Minister Delegate at the Ministry of Economy, Paul Tason, Anglophone elite close to Biya from Lebialem.

For the record, it is by the general Ayeke that at the beginning of April, the secret services Cameroon went to establish a plan to neutralize all the REd Dragons. The plan was for General Ayeke, some members of the REd Dragons and Cameroonian soldiers to simulate a battle in which the death of General Ayeke was to be announced and then the latter would reappear and propose to Field Marshall to celebrate his return by gathering all the Red Dragons at Azi camp to eat and drink. And after the feast, once all the Red Dragons were asleep, Azi's camp was going to be attacked by the BIR and all the REd Dragons neutralized. 

But Field Marshall will foil this plan by refusing to organize such a party since when BIR soldiers attack the Azi camp the next day, in the early morning, all the Red Dragons are not present at the camp. There was only the night watchman who was killed. Is it because the plan failed and General Ayeke was laid bare that he decided to dissent from the Red Dragons and create his own armed group? This is not excluded. Nevertheless, these internal struggles within the separatist armed groups first benefit the power of Yaoundé who created them through its SEMIL.

BREAKING: Nigerian Senate will not pass hate speech bill, says Senate President, Ahmed Lawan

Following the public outcry that greeted the hate speech bill, the Senate President Ahmed Lawan has said the Senate won’t pass the proposed anti-free speech bills.

Lawan made the disclosure in response to a detailed written protest letter against the hate speech bill and anti-social media bill before the senate by the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA.

He said legislators will listen to the pulse of the Nigerians who have rejected the bills and will do exactly as they demanded.

Lawan had in his letter to HURIWA dated November 20th, 2019 which was endorsed by his Chief of Staff; Alhaji Babagana M. Aji but received on December 4th, 2019 titled: “RE: WHY NATIONAL ASSEMBLY’S BILLS AGAINST FREE SPEECH ARE UNCONSTITUTIONAL: BY HURIWA,” stated as follows:

“I write to present the compliments of the President of the Senate, His Excellency, Sen. Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan, Ph.D., CON and to acknowledge receipt of your letter on the above subject wherein you asked the National Assembly to suspend ad infinitum the current attempts at introducing obnoxious legislation to curb access to the social media.”

“His Excellency is appreciative of your concern towards upholding our constitution and your members’ continuous use of their talents as writers to promote, protect and project the human rights of all Nigerians. His Excellency assures you that the Senate will not pass any anti-people laws.”

“While thanking you, please accept the assurances of the President of the Senate.”

HURIWA had on November 13th, 2019 written to the senate through the offices of the Senate President titled: “WHY NATIONAL ASSEMBLY’S BILLS AGAINST FREE SPEECH ARE UNCONSTITUTIONAL: BY HURIWA” even as the group had argued that:

“Freedom of expression is one of the fundamental rights provided in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended). By virtue of the same and other international instruments, it is the freedom to hold opinions, receive ideas and information and impart ideas and information without interference. Social media is used in reference to the means of expression other than the mainstream media.”

Urging the National Assembly to stop forthwith any attempt to legislate laws that offend the Rights to Freedom of Speech the Rights group reminded the National Assembly that Freedom of Expression in Nigeria is grounded constitutionally in Section 39 of the CFRN entrenches the right to freedom of expression in the following words:

“(1) Every person shall be entitled to freedom of expression, including the freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart ideas and information without interference.

(2) Without prejudice to the generality of subsection 1 of this section, every person shall be entitled to own, establish and operate any medium for the dissemination of information ideas and opinions:

Provided that no person, other than the Government of the Federation or of a State or any other person or body authorized by the President on the fulfillment of conditions laid down by an Act of the National Assembly, shall own, establish or operate a television or wireless broadcasting a station for any purpose whatsoever.”

The Rights group said similar provisions are found in Article 9 of the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights, Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948, Article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

“It does not appear a mere coincidence that section 39 of the CFRN which provides for freedom of expression comes immediately after section 38 which provides for right to freedom of thought, conscience, and religion. Next to thought is expression. The basis for this right, therefore, cannot be overemphasized in a democratic society. It is one of the essential foundations of a democratic society and the basic condition for its progress and development as held the European Court on Human Rights in Handyside Case.” Arguing that there are a plethora of decided cases guaranteeing free speech”.

HURIWA told the senate that: “The Supreme Court per Ayoola JSC, in the case of Medical and Dental Practitioners Disciplinary Tribunal v Okonkwo (2001) 85 LRCN 908 declared that the courts are the institution, society has agreed to invest with the responsibility of balancing conflicting interests in a way as to ensure the fullness of liberty without destroying the existence and stability of society itself. Therein lie the wisdom and need for qualification of all rights including this one most essential right.”

“In the case of Gozie Okeke v. The State (2003) 15 NWLR (Pt.842) 25, the Supreme Court held that the word “reasonable” in its ordinary meaning means moderate, tolerable and not excessive. In this regard, there are extant laws in Nigeria that seek to prevent abuse of free speech. Section 24(1) of the Cybercrime (Prohibition, Prevention, etc) Act 2015 makes it a criminal offense to send a message or other matter by means of computer systems of network that is grossly offensive, pornographic or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character or causes any such message or matter to be sent or he knows to be false, for the purpose of causing annoyance, injury, inconvenience, danger, obstruction, insult, injury, criminal intimidation, enmity, hatred, ill will or needless anxiety to another or causes such message to be sent. Also, Section 24(2) of the Act criminalizes transmitting or causing the transmission of any communication through a computer system or network to bully, threaten or harass another person where such communication places another person in fear of death, violence or bodily harm or to another person.”

“In the same vein there is the tort of defamation under a victim of abuse of freedom of speech can seek redress besides the criminal offenses of defamation and injurious false under the Criminal Code and Penal Code. Section 391 of the Penal Code Law makes is defamation to speak or represent by mechanical means or by signs or visible representation or publish any imputation concerning another intending to or knowing or having reason to believe that it will hard the reputation of the person. While a false statement of fact under similar circumstances is injurious false under section 393 of the Penal Code Law. There are similar provisions in sections 373, 374 and 375 of the Criminal Code Laws of the Southern States. Besides, there are various provisions in the Nigeria Broadcasting Commission Act dealing with violations that have become known as “hate speech” with varying degrees of sanctions.”

HURIWA argued strongly against limitations to access to social media and also rejected the hate speech bill as follows: “To require more than the existing laws have provided would portray the government in bad light and peach it against the people and any such further regulation will only take Nigeria centuries back in civilization with attendant consequences of gross and flagrant abuse like in the colonial era or the immediate after which had such over-regulation like the laws on sedition by which a lot of persons were frequently charged and convicted for what ordinarily would be fair comment by citizens of democratic society. A lot of these cases are high profile cases with potential to cause political tension, affect the peace and stability of the entire country which the proponents of the of social media regulation claim to want to prevent. This would further deepen the already entrenched distrust between the people and the government. This way, the government loses its right and benefit of feedback from the people.”

Demonic practice in Etoudi: heartbreaking confessions of Paul Biya's relatives

Drinking fresh human blood is especially exciting for the whims of demons. " Philosophy or witchcraft: Titus Edzoa reveals himself...



Philosophy or witchcraft: Titus Edzoa unveils "Drink fresh from human blood, it is particularly exciting for the whims of demons" The book published by the former Secretary General of the Presidency of the Republic, imprisoned for more than 15 years at the State Secretariat for Defense (Sed), is the summary of an intellectual cogitation of a free man of mind, despite all the humiliation suffered since his imprisonment. 

A troubling work. The greatest brutal dictatorships in history have always dreaded free-spirited men. We can proceed to the most stupid of repressions, operate the most violent of the rollers, activate the most infamous of human barbarities, and especially mount the most horrible brainwashing ploys, difficult to change conviction a man who is wants to be freed from the spirit. 

Professor Titus Edzoa is certainly one of those men who are spiritually out of control, and who know how to assume their ideas and actions, even though, like Socrates, a great reference in the history of philosophy, they were bitterly invited to drink hemlock. We must read his book "Meditations of prison (Yaoundé, Cameroon). Echoes of my silences ", recently published by Karthala to be built. 

The booklet is prefaced by Odile Tobner. The brave and indefatigable protector of human rights, widow of the venerable writer Mongo Beti, warns the reader immediately: "The meditations that he (Pr Titus Edzoa Ndlr) gives us, on his experience of captivity, solitude, but also on the speculative themes of numbers, of God, are all marked by the lucidity, the clarity, the clarity resulting from the mastery of the spirit and the speech which are his, far from the fantasies and the lucubrations that weak minds can conceive in contact with realities that crush them". 

It is to say that in the suffering which is his for 15 years, born from the morbid will of the tragedies of the "justice of the powerful", decided to crush it, Pr Titus Edzoa remained standing and emancipated of spirit.

Thus, in the silence of the "black hole" which serves him as cell, in this "prison" which he had the honor to inaugurate 15 years ago, he sends through this book, his detractors, his detractors, but especially his executioners (those who toil daily in the work of the attempt of his annihilation, but also to their sponsors), the troubling intellectual message he remains lucid.

Teachings "Meditations of Prison" in its 155 pages is easy to read, certainly. But the message of each chapter, of each sentence is dense. In fact, Professor Titus Edzoa gives a lesson in life. 

That of his life in prison. In short, a set of lessons on life. Like a Carthusian monk who scrutinizes every day the cry of the birds at sunrise, the rhythm of the beats of his heart and the sound noises that manage to reach him from the outside world, Titus Edzoa has evaluated each day for 15 years now, the yapping roaches, rustling mice, and the constant buzzing of mosquitoes. 

This has produced this series of meditations on prison, torture, gendarme, justice, politics, silence, mysticisms, the mysteries of numbers; or on concepts like destiny, life and death, money and happiness, love, "God", the Epiphany of a face, time ... If we are all admiring to the quality at both aesthetic and depressed to write it of this intellectual who studied in Italy, seat par excellence of the humanities, one is equally seduced by the depth of his thought on the concepts he submits to reflection. 

Pr Titus Edzoa does not use buzzwords, as some do in the literature of thuriferous and other absurd zealists, much like to impress their contemporaries. He writes using words that convey his freedom of thought, and the depth of his thought. Thus, politics, the former minister of higher education takes time to translate the simultaneous meaning. "Politics, elusive nebula as diffuse as the universe, as old as History, as complex as Humanity!... It is defined sometimes as a science, sometimes as an art, or both at the same time... adret for some, ubac for others.. (...) In his name, only contradictions, clashes, wars, tortures, defeats, victories! ... The happiness of some misfortune others. "

Just as when the author explains the mysteries of numbers, we are impressed to see him "teaching" basic mathematics with the purpose of making our understanding available to interpret an intentionally hidden reality. Finally, you learn a lot from the book that Titus Edzoa has just made. Especially on everything that characterizes the power of Paul Biya who keeps Cameroon and Cameroonians on bail for 30 years now. 

In particular, how money degrades some senior regime clerks to the point of dehumanizing them. Or, how some to access power go so far as to drink human blood (read the Good Leaves) and indulge in sacrifices of a horror that has no name. In reality, this book could well have been called "Philosophical Meditations of a Prisoner", so much the author is bogged down in the reflection on all the questions and subjects, which all relate to the essence and the existence of Man. 

The Cameroonians who read it will certainly have the opportunity to indulge in reflection and find this ephemeral world. Certainly also future generations, those of here or elsewhere, will sooner or later be able to read this book in a school program, here or elsewhere. Jean Francois CHANNON Titus Edzoa, "Meditations of Prison", Editions Karthala, April 2012, 155 pages, 15,000 FCFA. 

"Good leaves: Titus Edzoa, the occultism and the Biya system Drink fresh human blood, it is particularly exciting for the whims of the demons, tired of the languorous divine sirens, too demanding and jealous, it is incubated, to deprive of their virginity nymphets as lascivious as naïve: 

it provides youth in perpetuity; to practice homosexuality as a ritual of purification and allegiance is a high discriminatory distinction for the reputation of the supposedly prestigious brotherhood; to commit epic and suicidal nocturnal fights in the astral plane on "flying carpet planes", stuffed with incendiary missiles, the dreaded enemy eliminating itself only at night, to taste human flesh that has been smothered with ambrosia for eternity; to give a sacrifice to the brotherhood and, in turn, the most beloved of his relatives, is to strengthen the solidarity and respectability of the group; to organize sabbatical masses, very black in color, to challenge the Almighty God surrounded by his cohort of saints, blessed and consorts;

to agree with Lucifer, the doubly known devil, the most feared because the most formidable, as a sign of pride to be his torch of the incarnation of evil; Fornicate with female cadavers, for lack of harpies particularly dull, it gives fishing and courage; to drink from hallucinogenic coctions is assured access to the realm of ancestors, eternal guardians of wisdom; to consult old grimoires, to discover there magic formulas: thus with the card can one kill with the envi, before perishing oneself happy, filled with a violent death.., 

as it seems, every "mystic" always dies of a violent death, and every violent death unmasks "all camouflaged mysticism"...; Ablutions, public baths in Adam's clothes and enemas of various peels, combined with pepper and pepper strength, in explosive cocktails, that is "armored", immune to spells of all kinds, making invulnerable to all bullets and arrows poisoned, visible or invisible, at all attacks, day and night; to make oneself invisible by "passwords", with the faculty, the power of preventively destroying the other, and that in an ostentatious manner, for the secret could obscure the power; to possess the soul of the other, at the same time to enjoy the privilege of the power to exorcise, for one must be a bit devil to overthrow the devil; to pass through the cracks of the walls, the palaces of the locks, in demonstration of the power of ubiquity... And many other feats, many other nonsense, again and again! Stripper and phantasmagorical, it is an empire that is permanently transformed from the most astonishing illusion to an alleged reality, overwhelmed by ignorance and obscurantism! And for causes? 

To acquire, it seems, ever more power, more power, in order to possess, to accumulate wealth, in the ostentation that terrifies; to dominate everything and to dominate all; access to the most prestigious functions of the society, where money and material goods would be the glorious and mirobolous result of a successful life of so-called happiness!!! Kingdom of occultism, empire of witchcraft. This is how, alas, mysticism is perceived in a society stuffed with ignorance and helplessness, victim of deleterious and subtly distilled mental poisoning, under the bewildering yoke of obscurantist forces! 

"Contemporary man seeks pleasure without happiness, happiness without science and science without wisdom", said already, about a century ago, Edouard Schure... This realm of fantasies comprises three large interdependent groups: The first it is made up of all these charlatans and myriads of wizards, authors and sellers of illusions at auction; exalted by a self-contemplation and by an uncommon narcissism, they attribute themselves to alleged Cyclopean powers; it may be that some of them had stealthy access, at a few moments of their existence, to certain aspects of the universal laws, without any control; and in a marked ignorance, they use it, manipulating them dangerously at their peril, to scamper, haunt, harass, to take hostage their victims too gullible and helpless; for selfish ends, they pretend to be patented chants of "magic", obsessed by their own turpitudes, fears, anxieties and repressed defeats...

What a cynical courage! The second group: it includes individuals of all kinds also, affiliated to movements or organizations religious or not, allegedly altruistic and charitable, at least respectable and sometimes recognized in the world; they are distinguished by violent and dilatory verbal flights, opposing faith and reason, amalgamating knowledge and knowledge, fanaticism and truth, violence and redemption, distilling also, since their appearance societal or clerical hegemony and condescension, the mental venom of fear and the condemnation that "assassinates" the unruly soul. 

In a shamefully hypocritical attitude, they confuse two diametrically opposed worlds, reveling in demonizing, in all their skins, the authentic mysticism, revealing phantasmagoric party, of the same nature as the first, which they claim yet to denounce the escapades. Their extreme and tireless violence is as surprising as it is suspicious: the permanent attraction of the illusory charlatanic world would inexorably dry up the theories of their increasingly scattered chapels. An attitude that resolutely takes on the appearance of a merciless struggle of hegemony, far from the redeeming and oblique charity, chanted by these dangerous exalts. This group is at least as harmful as the first. The third and the last group: 

it is this anonymous mass, encompassing all those beings weakened by the harsh experiences of life, sometimes plunged into the abyss of helplessness and despair, and seeking easy, even miraculous solutions to their problems. From their infancy to this unhealthy, hypocritical and ignorant environment, their poisonous and unbalanced mind gradually became saturated with patterns of horror and fear, becoming enslaved by fantasies and hostage to a bewildering trickery. 

They are privileged victims as much of the first as of the second group, a profitable clientele at a high price, in spite of their dignity and their naive sincerity ... That is what the mysticism can not be! That's what mysticism is not!

Anglophone Crisis: Army general misses assassination of 'Field Marshall'

Former commander-in-chief of "Field Marshall", the boss of the armed group Red Dragons who controls the Lebialem (South-West Anglophone), "General Ayeke", announced for death on March 21 by the communication division of the Cameroonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Defense, is today at the head of an armed group called "Gorilla Fighters" based in the locality of Alou, in Lebialem.

In a video currently circulating on social networks, General Ayeke, a former soldier of the Rapid Intervention Battalion (BIR), an elite unit of the Cameroonian army, announces that he and his men have waged a victorious battle against troops of the Cameroonian army. But in the same video, he accuses his ex-boss Field Marshall of terrorizing people during a mourning, kidnapped for ransom and raped girls in front of their families. 

This attitude of General Ayeke is actually the implementation of the plan developed by the regime of Paul Biya through the Division of Military Security, his military intelligence service, to destroy the Dragons RE. As we have explained to you many times in our writings, the sinister Emile Bamkoui, the boss of this villainous crime laboratory known by the acronym SEMIL, has put in place a plan to break the unity in the revolt of the English-speaking people . The behavior of Ayeke is one of the variations of this plan. 

The goal of Ayeke and his group is to systematically attack (physically or by video) Field Marshall and destroy the reputation of the latter considered the beast of power of Yaounde. As a reminder, General Ayeke is very close to the Minister Delegate at the Ministry of Economy, Paul Tason, Anglophone elite close to Biya from Lebialem.

For the record, it is by the general Ayeke that at the beginning of April, the secret services Cameroon went to establish a plan to neutralize all the REd Dragons. The plan was for General Ayeke, some members of the REd Dragons and Cameroonian soldiers to simulate a battle in which the death of General Ayeke was to be announced and then the latter would reappear and propose to Field Marshall to celebrate his return by gathering all the Red Dragons at Azi camp to eat and drink. And after the feast, once all the Red Dragons were asleep, Azi's camp was going to be attacked by the BIR and all the REd Dragons neutralized. 

But Field Marshall will foil this plan by refusing to organize such a party since when BIR soldiers attack the Azi camp the next day, in the early morning, all the Red Dragons are not present at the camp. There was only the night watchman who was killed. Is it because the plan failed and General Ayeke was laid bare that he decided to dissent from the Red Dragons and create his own armed group? This is not excluded. Nevertheless, these internal struggles within the separatist armed groups first benefit the power of Yaoundé who created them through its SEMIL.

English-speaking lawyers warming up for strike

The lawyers of Common Law are preparing to observe a strike in protest against a recent draft law on languages ​​presented to Parliament and will be debated on Wednesday.

According to English-speaking lawyers, French judges will be protected by this law if they preside over a hearing in an English-speaking area. Common law lawyers will also have the right to chair sessions in English, even in a civil law area. 

"The bill on the promotion of Cameroon's two official languages ​​makes the special status expected for the English-speaking regions absurd, which also affects French teachers," said SDF lawyer Henry Kemende.

According to the main Cameroon daily, The Guardian Post, "the form of the demonstration is not yet known, it will be determined when they meet today in the premises of the court". 

The newspaper goes on to quote lawyer Akum Michael, treasurer of the Bar Council: the cause of the strike in 2016". 

The joint protest of the lawyers intervenes at the same time as that of the teachers of the University of Bamenda who protest against the security situation in their institution and in the city as a whole.

Cameroon Crisis: North West, South West And Far North: About 252 Ex-combatants Disarmed And Demobilized

                           file photo

For fiscal year 2020, the government intends to provide more financial resources to the National Committee on Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration.

Created on 30 November 2018, the National Committee for Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (Cnddr) has been conducting a series of activities for a few days in connection with its first anniversary. During a press conference he gave last Saturday in Yaoundé, his coordinator, Faï Yengo Francis, gave a summary report of the first year of operation of this structure whose role is to provide a welcoming environment. and social reintegration to Boko Haram repentants and members of armed groups operating in the northwestern and southwestern regions. The former regional governor said that, to date, 252 ex-combatants are currently being followed in Cnddr centers. There are 122 in Mora (Far-North), 60 in Bamenda(North-West) and 70 in Buea(South-West).

"We received the very first ex-combatant on January 28, 2019. The pace of their exit from the bush, it must be said, is a little slow because their comrades who remained there are a threat to them. The Cameroonian portal of Belgium (Camer.be). Moreover, their sponsors from abroad, who are masters in the art of intoxication, tell these children that if they come to the centers they will be neutralized or imprisoned. They know nothing about the reality on the ground, they do not suffer what these children suffer in the bush, "said Fai Yengo Francis. The boss of the Cnddr swears that since November 04, 2018, date of his appointment, no ex-combatant has been harmed.

"The outstretched hand of the President of the Republic is sincere, it is the outstretched hand of a father; these children must continue to leave the bush, "he continues. What is done concretely in Ddr centers? "The first thing we give to these children in Ddr centers is security. Because it must be said that these children do not come massively because they are afraid, as well of their friends remained in the bush as the security forces with whom they had clashes for several months, and even their families because that they created a lot of problems there.

But this is the state, the defense forces provide security in the centers. The second thing they are offered is small income generating activities. 

In Ddr centers , they practice agriculture, livestock and many other small trades. Because, when the security conditions are met again, they will not have to start all over again, "explains the coordinator. Who also welcomes the work of accompanying churches and NGOs. It should be noted in passing that for the 2020 financial year, the government intends to grant CFAF 5 billion to Cnddr.

CPDM crisis: maneuvers to 'kill' former minister

Author of a shrewd scientific book with a strong educational potential entitled "Improving the State's Effectiveness in Cameroon," Dr. Bernard Messengue Avom, serves as a pretext for a horde of renegades who try to make him a slayer of government action. The moment of this hunt is not trivial. The former minister of public works, who has been out of the government since 2011, continues to display an ineffable loyalty to President Paul Biya, as evidenced by his brilliant conduct of the Rdpc investiture operations in his native Haute Sanaga, which has not recorded no protest even less claim for the double ballot of February 9, 2020. Entered incestuous concubinage with exogenous forces, who want to prosper the specter of an implosion of the Rdpc and even the seraglio, Endogenous twisted spirits try to maintain a disastrous plan of destabilizing Cameroon by intensifying all over the place a cavalcade of treacherous attacks that President Biya pays the highest price. For the success of their dirty work and credibility their thesis, they do not hesitate to subvert the reality, disguise the facts, distort the words and analyzes of some of the regime's clutches. In the pay of some high officials of the Republic greedy for power and whose dream of succession is now daytime, a certain press was commissioned to blackmail Dr. Messengue Avom. We must definitely understand that the man who left the government since 2011, but whose activism and loyalty to President Paul Biya remained intact, continues to scare ... they do not hesitate to subvert reality, disguise the facts, distort the words and analyzes of some of the regime's clutches. In the pay of some high officials of the Republic greedy for power and whose dream of succession is now daytime, a certain press was commissioned to blackmail Dr. Messengue Avom. We must definitely understand that the man who left the government since 2011, but whose activism and loyalty to President Paul Biya remained intact, continues to scare ... they do not hesitate to subvert reality, disguise the facts, distort the words and analyzes of some of the regime's clutches. In the pay of some high officials of the Republic greedy for power and whose dream of succession is now daytime, a certain press was commissioned to blackmail Dr. Messengue Avom. We must definitely understand that the man who left the government since 2011, but whose activism and loyalty to President Paul Biya remained intact, continues to scare ...

We knew the hostility of a certain press for the power of Yaounde. We do not even shy away from it, as a rule, even when this hostility is manifested by a very partial or even partial reading of Cameroon's news, or by sweeping judgments about our leaders and their ability to manage challenges, hopes, crises, fractures. After all, in Cameroon the press is free ... It can be considered that the press has the right to take a singular look at the evolutions of the country, a glance nourished by its own prejudices and clichés, dependent on a grid of reading against hair, which will always prefer to describe a fantasized Cameroon rather than concrete Cameroon. Real Cameroon, the one we live, the one we are. 

Thus, when in '' one '' newspapers attribute authorship of the diagnosis of the ineffectiveness of the fight against corruption to Dr. Messengue Avom, we can only get out of his reserve. Because under the pretext of a semiotics of end of reign which would fuel the dissensions with tendency implosive within the same regime of Yaoundé and which one of the materialization would be the sharp criticism of system of fight against the corruption, our confreres boast in fact to demonstrate a certain betrayal of Bernard Messenge Avom against President Paul Biya .. A species of denunciation that would now aim to establish that the former Minister of Public Works would suddenly be at odds with Etoudi. 

Which is pure fantasy in the light of reality. The former minister of public works who left the government since 2011 continues to display an ineffable loyalty to President Paul Biya, as evidenced by his brilliant conduct Rdpc investiture operations in his native Haute Sanaga, which has not recorded no protest even less claim for the double ballot on February 9, 2020. The raging publications want to evidence this imaginary defection extracts poorly copied and very misinterpreted his book entitled "Improving the efficiency of the state in Cameroon ". It is purely to ignore and even distort the thought of the author.

The cross-sectional demonstration of one of the paragraphs in his book: "was not meant to criticize, but in the spirit of the book to be improved. The author notes that the desire for reform so far has oscillated as a swing between concentration and deconcentration, because one thinks only to fight against corruption, sacrificing efficiency. It thus magnifies the reform of 2018 which has made a qualitative leap by completely empowering the owners. the author believes that in order to improve the efficiency of this reform, it is necessary to add systematic controls at the end of each year, that each project owner reports on the use of the budgetary authorizations available to him and at the end , more globally, that man be trained so as to give him an ethic that he will not respect more public fortune because he will be afraid of the rigors of the legislation, but because his conscience will not allow him ". We deliver a literary critic under anonymity! In reality, the aim here is not to deny the bundle of statements presented as "facts", but outrageously exaggerated and distorted. It would then require a real counter-investigation, which we do not have the leisure to lead in such a short period of time. The purpose is to question the hasty conclusions they draw. If Dr. Bernard Messengue Avom, could, like other political, religious or traditional personalities indulge in the charms of pedagogical writing, 

Moreover, the press of the sinistrose does not make any secret, from time to time, of the publications of the senior clerks of the State or the private sector which are illustrated by a feather sober but rich for the emergence of the Nation which alone must prevail. Writing to suggest ways of improvement is not a form of disapproval or dissent. The role of a good collaborator is also and especially to make good proposals. Why Cameroon would be an exception? In the eyes of any discerning reader, the malicious nature of this cabal is therefore clear. Everything is caricatured at will, the editors not afraid of abusing the hyperbole. 

For example, it is irreproachable to assert that according to the Minister Messengue: "In Cameroon the fight against corruption is an incantation" ... For the author, in Cameroon, "the problem of corruption can not be reduced to only socio-political order, because it raises questions that also affect the philosophical and moral order. It appears as a gangrene, a scourge that seriously undermines the integrity of both the public procurement governance system and its implementation, and is likely to have serious consequences. It "implies that a briber pays a bribe for an undue advantage." Quite realistic statements that make a difference except other considerations of a certain experience ...

Elections: Atanga Nji disappoints Cabral Libii amidst his threat of boycott

For Atanga Nji, is out of the question to violate the electoral law to grant additional time to candidates.

On Monday, December 2, René Emmanuel Sadi, Minister of Communication (Mincom) and Paul Atanga Nji, Minister of Territorial Administration, met the media to announce the effective holding of elections on February 9, 2020. 

René Emmanuel Sadi said that the convocation of the electorate is a response of the Head of State to the expectations of a people conscious and jealous of its sovereignty. 

Faced with the attitude of some political parties that threaten to boycott the deadline, Paul Atanga Nji, was keen to recall the provisions of the law by being clear: "This is not a breeze. The legal provisions in this area are clear. They impose a fortnight after the convocation of the electorate to each political party to file their lists of candidates. No party is exempt from this rule. You can not ask for one thing and the opposite. We can not ask the public authorities to violate the law in this area. It is imposed on all the electoral actors who were to work according to the electoral calendar, and in particular the fact that after two extensions, as far as the municipal elections are concerned, it would now be difficult to ask for a new prorogation, "the minister told the media. The remarks are probably addressed to Cabral Libii, president of the Cameroonian Party for National Reconciliation (PCRN).

The young opponent has indeed asked Elecam, to give "exceptionally" a new deadline of 15 days for the filing of the lists of candidacy. 

On the role of the administrative authorities accused of having favored the candidates of a political party (RDPC), Paul Atanga Nji raises all ambiguity: "These recriminations were brought to our attention. Did the candidates of the party in question have a mention that indicated their membership of that political party? I do not think so. All the candidates presented pieces of files that required a minimum of checks. This was binding on all political parties.

Couple Set To Divorce In Abide To Unite With Catholic Church

Married 12 years ago under the regime of polygamy, a couple wants to dissolve his union. He wishes to celebrate their religious marriage to the Catholic Church, but, the previous choice of their matrimonial regime is an obstacle. The priest of the parish advises them to divorce.

Yet they sat side by side until their case was called. When it was their turn to appear before the Judge of the Court of First Instance ( TPD ) of Yaoundé on November 20, Emmanuel and Sonia advanced a reassuring step, arms disappointed below, all beautiful and all smiling. Nobody could imagine that they are in the process of divorce, until the reason for their presence is evoked by the court. Emmanuel filed a petition for divorce before this court. He wants to put an end to his marriage with Sonia his wife and mother of his three children still young.

Curiously, no reason for divorce was mentioned in the act of referral. Why do you seek a divorce? At once questioned the judge. Emmanuel was speechless for a moment, before retorting. "In fact, Madam Chair, we do not want to divorce." An embarrassing answer, which created confusion in the mind of the court and the litigants present in the courtroom. For the record, it was in 2006, during a baptism organized by the husband's family that Emmanuel and Sonia met for the first time. Throughout the reception, they did not leave each other's eyes. At the end of the gala, the lovers met at a restaurant in the square, a question for them to get to know each other better. They then decided to give themselves a chance, although customarily distinct.

Emmanuel is from the Western Region, and Sonia is from Beti tradition. It was in May 2012 that they decided to formalize their relationship in a civil status center in the city of Yaoundé. They opted for the regime of polygamy and the community of property. Since that day, the two lovebirds never leave each other and live a real love story. The Cameroonian portal of Belgium (Camer.be). Three children are still minors born of this idyll, and Sonia expects a fourth offspring. Although opting for the regime of polygamy, Emmanuel did not take a second wife. Throughout their marital life, the couple seems to have never had problems. Their sin, stresses the husband, was the choice of their matrimonial regime, which today is a real obstacle to their religious life.

Divorce without reasons

In 12 years of marriage, the couple gave their heart and soul to the service of the lord in a Catholic church in the city. In view of their respective responsibilities in their diocese, the parish council forced them to formalize their union with the church. Having been previously married under polygamy, the spouses can not benefit from this privilege. "The Catholic Church is against polygamous marriages.  When the priest found that we are united under the regime of polygamy, he forbade us to take communion.  He advised us to dissolve our first marriage, and remarry under monogamy. According to him, it is the only solution to celebrate our union with the church. That's why we've seized your court, "said Emmanuel.

After hearing the complainant, the court realized that Emmanuel did not raise any grounds for divorce. "The court does not grant a divorce without just cause. In Cameroon, there is no longer a divorce by mutual consent. Are there no other ways around to avoid this?  Have you met all the prerequisites for a wedding before you get married? Has the law not provided for a procedure in change of matrimonial regime? ", Questioned the judge. After informing her hierarchy, she resolved to dissolve this union, imagining the reasons for divorce.

Emmanuel accuses his wife of the abandonment of the matrimonial home, and in a counterclaim verbal, Sonia accuses her husband of physical abuse. The lady, who says she is more involved in the activities of the church than her husband, wants the divorce to be pronounced to the tors tors of the latter. "I do not want to bring prejudice that will devalue me in my Christian association. I never deserted the marital home. I love my husband, and I can not wait to get married to him at church, "she said. Verdict, December 18, 2019.

Anglophone Crisis: These 5 Things You Need to Know

Cameroon experiences almost daily violence between soldiers and separatists in its two English-speaking regions, a legacy of the turbulent history of this former German colony, shared after the First World War between France and the United Kingdom.

After the defeat of Germany in 1918, the League of Nations (SDN, ancestor of the UN), placed four fifths of the German Kamerun under French tutelage, and the western part bordering Nigeria under British tutelage. 

The French side becomes independent in 1960. A year later, a part of Cameroon under British tutelage (the northern predominantly Muslim) opts for its attachment to Nigeria and the other part for its attachment to the French-speaking Cameroon, to form a Federal Republic to From October 1, 1961. 

In 1972, a referendum ended federalism. 

English minority 

Cameroon is largely francophone and comprises ten regions, two of which are predominantly English-speaking, the North-West (capital: Bamenda) and the South-West (capital: Buea). Anglophones represent about 14% of the country's 23 million inhabitants.

The authorities extol the reality of bilingualism. The country is a member of the Francophonie and the 

Commonwealth 

Nevertheless, many Anglophones consider themselves marginalized, even victims of discrimination, and denounce an inequitable sharing of wealth. 

Contested "unity" 

In the 1990s, English-speaking claims multiplied in favor of an independence referendum. In 2001, protests banned on the 40th anniversary of unification degenerated, with several dead and arrested separatist leaders.

The current tensions emerged in November 2016, with teachers lamenting the appointment of French speakers in English-speaking regions, or lawyers rejecting the supremacy of Roman law at the expense of the Anglo-Saxon "Common Law". 

Most of the protest leaders demand a return to federalism and, for a minority, the creation of an independent state, the "Ambazonia". 

Repression and violence 

As early as December 2016, demonstrations in the English-speaking area resulted in the death of first civilians. Others will be killed in protest marches that are severely repressed by the police. On 17 January 2017, several English-speaking leaders were arrested on charges of "acts of terrorism". President Paul Biya, who has been in power since 1982, lifts charges in August. 

On 1 October, at least 17 people are killed on the sidelines of a symbolic proclamation of independence by separatists. "We are no longer slaves of Cameroon," declares Ambazonia's "president", Julius Ayuk Tabe.

At the end of 2017, a radical fringe of separatists takes up arms. They attack the security forces as well as the symbols of the administration such as schools, which they set on fire. They also kidnap policemen, civil servants and businessmen, sometimes foreigners. 

'Civil War' In April 2018, the Social Democratic Front (SDF), one of the main opposition parties to Paul Biya, believes that the crisis has "degenerated into open civil war". In October 2018, an American missionary was killed in Bambui, a suburb of Bamenda. On November 5, 79 students from a high school in Bamenda were kidnapped, the largest kidnapping since the beginning of the conflict. They will be released two days later. 

On December 1, 2018, Yaoundé launched a disarmament program in conflict zones in the far north and the English-speaking regions. 

To date, armed clashes between separatists and security forces have killed more than 2,000 people, according to Human Rights Watch. More than 530,000 people have had to leave their homes, according to the UN.

On August 20, 2019, Julius Ayuk Tabe and nine of his supporters are sentenced to life imprisonment for "terrorism" and "secession". 

Since then, thousands of people have left the English-speaking regions, fearing an escalation of violence after the separatists' call for "dead cities" days. On the day of September 2, the call is widely followed and very little schools have reopened to date.

The nice joke of Maurice Kamto to 'France'

After the announcement of the withdrawal by Kamto on the participation of the MRC in the next local elections, it is the motion arm in the opposition and the regime. Everything suggests that Maurice Kamto would have kicked his feet in the anthill.

The Anglophone crisis 

Since the convocation of the electorate and the departure of Paul Biya for the Paris summit on peace, a blackout has settled on the crisis in the Noso. While the media announced the presence of 180 French soldiers officially coming in for military exercises, the Cameroonian army reinforced its presence in Lebialem. The unacknowledged goal of the regime was to forget the Noso for three months with the electoral campaign and post-election disputes. During this time will pass over the genocide in Southern Cameroon. 

By refusing to go to the elections, Kamto has put the Anglophone crisis back at the center of the debate, which has given rise to new revelations, particularly concerning the number of civilians killed since the beginning of the war.

Instead of 3000 dead, the figures of 12 000 are now mentioned, a member of the government, the Commonwealth Minister acknowledged that more than 750 soldiers have been killed since the beginning of the crisis. By asking Tibor Nagy a few days ago to give Paul Biya a little more time to finish the war in the Noso, Mr Mbayu, a Commonwealth minister, hoped to distract international opinion with the elections and to genocide the English speakers with the support of France. 

Marginalize the RCM and remove the phrase "President Elect" 

Monday, November 25, 2019, when Maurice Kamto is announced at a press conference no one imagined what he will launch as a bomb. Since the convocation of the electoral body, the administrative authorities, sub-prefects, mayors and prosecutors announced the colors on what will come out of the polls on February 9th.

If there is a phrase that made Paul Biya's courtiers tremble, it was "the elected president." You can criticize everything and challenge Paul Biya, but not his legitimacy because more than anything, he loves power. so much he holds that he is capable of anything to maintain himself. 

While MRC candidates were struggling to get their record-writing documents signed, coalitions within the opposition were fighting for the RCN, according to their own words. A high-level cadre of the PCRN has admitted to Radio Balafon recruiting young people with the aim of fighting the MRC and not the CPDM. 

The trap against Maurice Kamto 

An anonymous source who has been part of this coalition has made sensational revelations about the strategy put in place against the MRC. Paul Biya plays big with this election, the regime would have bet on corruption. "Practicing everyone has been bought including within the MRC, civil society, academics, activists, media and opponents are being used to forever kill the party of rebirth. "Explains our source before continuing" the results of these elections we already know, the party of Cabral 08 deputies against 32 for the SDF and 05 for the MRC to whom we would give 03 deputies in the West and 02 in the littoral including Douala 5th, stronghold of Bamileke to pass the party of Maurice Kamto from the second to the fourth political force being supported only by the Bamileke "specifies our source. 

By refusing to go to the elections, the MRC thus puts in difficulty the SDF, the PCRN and other traitors, hence the reaction on radio balafon of a Cabral party executive when he says: "the withdrawal of the MRC has was a very bad news " 

The MRC would be the only political party to challenge the results and during this time the media will be focused on the crisis that will be born within the MRC because of the infiltrators.

Paul Biya plays with his 'Bamileke creatures' Patrice Nganang

I'm going to explain this gently-softly, because I'm not only Professor of Cultural Studies, I've also practiced this in two of the countries that have most deeply and tragically made stereotypes, Germany with Jews, USA with blacks. The stereotype we are talking about here is a chapter of public representation, and so is different from the racist or tribal jokes that people make: it is a flesh-and-gold being, who lives in mythology of power institutes: Massa Yo is here its manifestation, especially for the Bamileke. As we know, the Bamileke are a people that has always resisted, and as a result they have been divided - there is the West, but also in the Southwest and Northwest.


The resistance of the Bamileke was fierce: against the Bamum, against Islam, against the Germans, against the French. The fierce proof of this resistance is that the organization system of the Bamileke, the tontines, remains intact, untouched, and alive, even if the people are divided. The maquis thus occupied this space of resistance in a natural way, of cultural resistance already in 1945-1950, with Matthias Djoumessi, and of 1958, with the effective maquis of the UPC, whose most explosive face was Kamdem Niyim. You will realize that, with Mathias Djoumessi as with Kamdem Niyim, the tactics of power has been doubled. 

1) Beside the effective liquidation of the rebel Bamileke, the Resistance therefore, with the effective genocide, 

2) the cooptation of these in the power, here rectilinear from 1956-2018. And because of this, Djoumessi and Kamdem Niyim became ministers, before Niyim was executed in the public square. 

But the third tactic was the stereotype of the castrated Bamileke, the one who is the little dog, from whom the people of power make fun, and who plays the game. Racism also invented such a character: the crazy black, who laughs, dance, is therefore in short the humorous arm of racism. Similarly for anti-Semitism. The fun Jew, castrate, submissive, has been the weapon of anti-Semites for many years. So it is with tribalism. He has always invented the zany Bamileke, the Bamileke who is laughed at, and this was done by a play, 'Three suitors, a husband', a piece introduced to the curriculum of public studies, so that every child in this country remember this Bamileke castrate, and play that will have been played everywhere. Of this one is not the public figure who is Co modified, that is to say, repeated by thousands - Massa Batre, played by Bamileke first, but under the instigation of an entirely Bulu production team, and of course Jean Miche Kankan. The constitution of the theatrical character, what in Cultural Studies is called performance of the role, is fundamental here - and racist America has many roles as it has given blacks since 'so much wins the wind'. Black castrate, submissive, laughing, which thus negated the rebellious black - Malcolm X, for example. The transition from theater to the political scene at home has gone from Kankan to Jean Djeuga, candidate for the 2011 presidential election, with Jean de Dieu Momo, stereotype candidate. instigation of an entirely Bulu production team, and of course Jean Miche Kankan. The constitution of the theatrical character, what in Cultural Studies is called performance of the role, is fundamental here - and racist America has many roles as it has given blacks since 'so much wins the wind'. Black castrate, submissive, laughing, which thus negated the rebellious black - Malcolm X, for example. The transition from theater to the political scene at home has gone from Kankan to Jean Djeuga, candidate for the 2011 presidential election, with Jean de Dieu Momo, stereotype candidate. instigation of an entirely Bulu production team, and of course Jean Miche Kankan. The constitution of the theatrical character, what in Cultural Studies is called role performance, is fundamental here - and racist America has many roles as it has given blacks since 'so much wins the wind'. Black castrate, submissive, laughing, which thus negated the rebellious black - Malcolm X, for example. The transition from theater to the political scene at home has gone from Kankan to Jean Djeuga, candidate for the 2011 presidential election, with Jean de Dieu Momo, stereotype candidate. Racist America has many roles as it has given blacks since 'so much wins the wind'. Black castrate, submissive, laughing, which thus negated the rebellious black - Malcolm X, for example. The transition from theater to the political scene at home has gone from Kankan to Jean Djeuga, candidate for the 2011 presidential election, with Jean de Dieu Momo, stereotype candidate. Racist America has many roles as it has given blacks since 'so much wins the wind'. Black castrate, submissive, laughing, which thus negated the rebellious black - Malcolm X, for example. The transition from theater to the political scene at home has gone from Kankan to Jean Djeuga, candidate for the 2011 presidential election, with Jean de Dieu Momo, stereotype candidate.


With Jean de Dieu Momo, the character became a truly political being: Momo became a minister, it is believed, to take the place of Kamto, no. The game of tribal substitution here wants it to take instead the place of what was a stereotype: Jean Djeuga, Jean-Miche Kankan, and of course Tchenguen of 'Three pretenders, a husband'. It happens that the stereotype is as violent as the character who lives his humiliation in the self-denigration. 

The laughter of the republic already formatted by the play 'Three suitors, a husband', play on the program, formatted by Jean-Miche Kankan, popular comedy character, formatted by the 2011 presidential election, found in Momo, which was still a comic potential. And he burst out laughing. He laughs at each of Momo's gestures. He laughs at what Momo does, his approach, his dance, in short, the character that is the stereotype already inscribed in the public culture. Momo shows us for the first time a stereotype that becomes a person in power, because here he comes into the inter-chambers of power, he becomes flesh and bone, he is suddenly alive. 

There is no more historical moment than this one, which suddenly sees an invention become flesh, and the politics of tribal representation have its most complete personification. What remains is what: the violence, because the violence of the self-denigration of Momo, will be externalized in the violence of self-sabotage Bamileke, in violence used against Kamto therefore, in violence. The circle will thus be closed, the one who wanted to transform the violence into a castrate subject would thus reveal his own violence, staged against his own.
