Once an oasis of peace and steadiness in Africa, my stunning dwelling area of Southern Cameroons is currently likely by excruciating pains, seemingly worse than the Rwandan genocide of 1994: our people are essentially remaining exterminated like cockroaches. Almost two several years have absent by and, I am certain, the UN and AU have not demonstrated any authentic determination to mediate in this menacing scenario. It is perfectly known that France is pulling the strings to preserve our nation, entire of abundant human and normal assets, captive.
In the current situations, it is imprudent for Grand Masters to parade the corridors of the Unity palace, and dine with, and confer accolades on, a president whose dormancy is suspicious a guy who, considering the fact that the arrival of the latest disaster, has refused to shear the sheep. This crisis that has steadily degenerated to a civil war is no lengthier an inner affair. It is relatively a international threat to peace and balance simply because Cameroonian patriots all above the world and Africans of fantastic will are impacted. It is no for a longer period an interior affair mainly because the governing administration has violated the common declaration of human rights in all aspects.
What ought to we do? There is urgent require for cease-hearth from the two sides. I vehemently condemn all armed robbers and bandits who are using edge of the situation to loot and harass peaceful civilians. A tranquil resolution can only be achievable with the mediation of a third get together for the reason that the individuals of Southern Cameroons have lost self confidence completely in the Biya routine. Considering the aloofness of AU and UN, the United states stands in the posture to mediate at this time. Notably, the circumstance of Southern Cameroons has been a subject matter of discussion at Capitol Hill with enough evidence of untold human legal rights abuses and the subjugation of the people of Southern Cameroons. As the crisis worsens by the working day, can the Overseas Affairs Committee of the US Congress revisit the scenario of Southern Cameroons? Sincerely, can my mates in the US suggest on what else we can do to stimulate the US to phase into this bloody crisis? Are the persons of Southern Cameroons much less human than the men and women of Libya, North Korea or Syria? Please help us, our folks are perishing!
Permit us pray! God is not dead. He sits on the throne, and in the conclude He will be King and choose but in advance of the conclude comes, we have to commit ourselves listed here and now to do the job for justice, peace, and equality.
