• My fellow Ambazonians

    We are making huge strides in 4 key areas

    1.Strengthening of our core forces and the gradual rebuilding of our peripheral forces. This is thanks to GZs' ability to mobilise resources and our efforts at ensuring collaboration amongst our forces. The strength of our core and the rebuilding of our peripheries will end and tire the enemy. They now count on God and Allah to help them win.

    2. Physical and psychological control of most activities within areas of our control and even beyond. Our forces continue to assert authority over most activities. The enemy’s attempt to reestablish itself has been relegated to PR stunt. They will not control Ambazonia through PR stunt.

    3. The Ambazonia Governing Council believes very strongly that the only way we will assert Ambazonian rule is by creating Ambazonian institutions to replace those of the occupier. The most effective institutions are those managed by both our forces and our civilian population. Our civilian population can not be bystanders in their own freedom. That is why we are setting up mediating institutions like ATLA to oversee Ambazonian fledgling institutions in areas of education, development, community policing and taxation. Those who said Diasporans were irrelevant and that GZ must take control are now confused. We ask all forces to institutionalize processes, make them transparent, and participatory.

    4. Targetted diplomacy. The success of the Canada pretalks has projected Ambazonia and shown clearly that we are united. It also exposed the massive division in Cameroun. We have continued to nurture the relationships established and open new doors.

    We have been working hard to ensure that the voices of our people and their aspirations are reflected in every diplomatic and institutional building initiative. We are also aware that small gains in our struggle create avenues for imaginary power tussle. Be rest assured we will manage it.

    Fellow Ambazonians

    After the successful Toronto pre AAC stop, the different leaders head to Atlanta on April 15. Toronto showed us that our people are excited, and we must build on this enthusiasm and our growing strength on the ground to deal a final blow against a more disintegrating enemy.

    God bless Ambaland

  • The pain of whaling parents was heart-wrenching as they mourned their children murdered by Cameroun in Ombe. We extend our heartfelt condolences to these families. In a free Ambazonia, infrastructural development for purposes of safety and economic growth will be a priority of any Ambazonia government.

    I also call on all Ambazonians to remain focused on the resistance. For 7 years, the noise makers and political agitators and saboteurs have been looking for a replacement to Dr Cho Ayaba and the ADF. They will have to wait for another 60 years. We will be considering the Batibo initiative as a national law. This will enable all forces to legally raise money and work with our civilian population. All ADF controlled areas must institute ATLA as a mediating institution. I encourage other forces to do the same or adapt ATLA to their contextual realities. We must invest more in rebuilding areas under our control so as to eliminate reliance on the occupier which has been using supposed reconstruction as a political propaganda to tout return to normalcy. If Independence must mean Independence, we must create Ambazonian institutions.

  • Switzerland a double adg sword. Thank you Dr Cho Lucas Ayaba the man who saw tomorrow.

    Interview with Sylvain Thévoz: "Switzerland's credibility is at stake."

    WRITTEN BY: FRANZ 24. JULY 2021

    New anti-Biya protests took place in Geneva. Cameroonians abroad have once again protested against the presence of their president in Switzerland, outside Cameroon. As in 2019, overflows were observed. Protesters made several attempts to break through the police cordon in front of the Intercontinental Hotel, where the presence of Paul Biya, 88, and President of Cameroon for 39 years, was reported.First authorized, then banned the day before, the demonstration still took place on Saturday. At the heart of the recriminations: Switzerland among others. The demonstrators accused the Swiss state of protecting "a dictator" who allegedly killed more than 3,000 members of the English-speaking minority in the North West and South West of Cameroon.
    We met Sylvain Thévoz with whom we spoke on this subject. Mr. Sylvain Thévoz (PS) is a member of the Grand Council of the canton of Geneva. There he agreed to answer questions from our editorial staff.

    MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON:
    Mr. Thévoz, on Saturday July 17, a new demonstration of Cameroonians took place in Geneva, all opposed to the presence of Mr. Paul Biya on Swiss soil. Did that surprise you?

    Sylvain Thévoz:
    No, that didn't surprise me at all. On the contrary. I think it is legitimate for Cameroonians to demonstrate when Paul Biya comes to spend the money of the Cameroonian people in Switzerland, but also in Europe, and everywhere in the world.
    There is something indecent, shocking that Mr. Paul Biya is a regular at the Intercontinental hotel with all the pomp he is used to and great opacity. You never know why he's coming, when he's leaving, how much time is left. So I understand perfectly well that there is a demonstration. It is completely legitimate in a democratic regime. It's even the least of things, I want to say.

    MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON:
    Would you have expected the federal authorities, in view of the events of 2019, to refuse him entry into Swiss territory?

    Sylvain Thévoz:
    No. I am not surprised that for the federal authorities the case of 2019 is "closed". In 2019, there were slippages, Paul Biya's bodyguards seriously molested a journalist. They were condemned by the Geneva courts, two years have passed and sadly, realpolitics is back.
    In the eyes of the federal authorities, Paul Biya is the elected president. Switzerland is playing its role of mediator in the conflict between the government of Paul Biya and the “Ambazonian” power in this conflict in western Cameroon. She is mandated to mediate in the context of this conflict.
    It is therefore understandable that the Swiss authorities do not want to offend Mr. Biya. The Swiss government is trying to maintain its good offices. But with the ban on demonstrations by opponents of Paul Biya on Saturday and the stalling of the mediation process, the Swiss government is failing doubly, both in its ability to guarantee its true neutrality and to establish its effectiveness.

    MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON:
    Let us stay a moment longer on the presence in itself of the Cameroonian president on Swiss soil. You say in this regard, that the decision of the federal authorities to allow Mr. Paul Biya to return to Swiss territory, is a decision of wisdom, a decision imposed by realpolitics, a completely logical decision.

    Sylvain Thévoz:
    No, no! I said I wasn't surprised. You asked me if I was surprised. So I said no. And I understand well the cards that the government plays according to its constraints. Now as a socialist deputy and as a militant, of course I find it shocking! It is shocking because Mr. Paul Biya comes to Switzerland, as he sees fit, to spend money that is not his; because he is someone who does not respect human rights, and does not respond in his governance to democratic principles.
    In my opinion, Switzerland, by virtue of its neutrality, should make Mr. Paul Biya understand, in view of the unrest of 2019, that he is not welcome in Geneva for his private visits and shopping, and that Switzerland may very well continue his mandate as mediator, must continue - I would say - this work of attempting to bring together the parties in conflict, but being much more firm in the face of Mr. Paul Biya to tell him that to come and play princes in Geneva in a luxury hotel is counterproductive in connection with these discussions and that is undesirable.
    In my opinion, the federal authorities have neither the courage nor the inclination to position themselves in this way. There is therefore an aplaventrism, of course, before the Cameroonian power, which harms Switzerland and its reputation for seriousness. Especially since we never really know what Mr. Paul Biya is doing in Geneva for private purposes. There are a lot of fantasies, rumors surrounding these trips and that is not healthy.

    MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON:
    Let us now leave the fact of the presence of Mr. Paul Biya, and talk about the demonstration of which this presence was the cause. During this demonstration, we were able to observe several scenes of violence. In one of your speeches , you accuse Mr. Paul Biya of being the "sower of trouble". Why him, and not the demonstrators?

    Sylvain Thévoz:
    I am referring to 2019. It was unacceptable to molest a journalist from Swiss radio and television, on the part of Mr. Biya's bodyguards. It should be remembered that Mr. Biya is protected as a personality by the Geneva police. When he comes to Geneva, it is with the knowledge of the authorities. It can very well be protected, protection is in place.
    Violence from anywhere is not acceptable, but it can be contained by an adequate police cordon. What I notice is that every time Mr. Paul Biya comes here, there are problems! I regret it. I do not support protesters who physically attack other people, or forcibly enter private spaces. But from what I have been able to observe, it is that there are demonstrators determined to speak out to Paul Biya in a terrible inequality in the balance of power.
    There is an all-powerful head of state, a potentate who comes to Geneva for a vacation. And in front of the demonstrators, people who have nothing other than their voice and their physical presence to show their disagreement. I cannot put the two on an equal footing. It is in this sense that I think Paul Biya is responsible for the troubles. And if he goes to a place and there are repeated tensions, he should refrain from coming back because he is obviously the trigger, and wondering about the cause of these disorders rather than wanting remove the effects.

    MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON:
    Who pays the bill for all the security deployment that is put in place when he is there? Who pays the bill after the excesses during the demonstrations of Cameroonians? Is it Mr. Paul Biya or is it the Geneva taxpayer?

    Sylvain Thévoz:
    It is obviously the Canton of Geneva, that is to say the taxes of the Genevans and Genevans. Mr. Paul Biya does not pay to my knowledge for any of this. He comes in his private capacity and is assured of police protection, whereas there are many other places in the city where police patrols are lacking and where security cannot be guaranteed due to the lack of personnel.

    MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON:
    After having authorized it, the cantonal authorities had finally banned the demonstration the day before, citing "a bundle of clues showing a concrete risk of overflow". You have, in another publication, criticized this decision, qualifying it as "blessed bread" for those who accuse Switzerland of playing a double game on the Cameroonian question. Who in the city or canton of Geneva has the authority to ban an event? In your opinion, was the ban inappropriate?

    Sylvain Thévoz:
    This ban was clearly excessive. The right to demonstrate is a fundamental, constitutional right. If there were threats, they emerge more from bravado than from a real risk that the Geneva police would not have been able to contain. We are talking about a police who managed the Biden-Putin summit. So two hundred demonstrators on the Place des Nations in Geneva… The police knew that the demonstration was going to take place on Saturday. She was prepared for it. She knew that by authorizing it there would have been neither more nor less overflow than what we had last Saturday by banning it, or even - I think - less tension.

    But for that it would have been necessary to be more in dialogue, in mediation, in understanding rather than in prohibition. This ban drastically increased the level of tension - Some people were amended, arrested on Friday, they were released on Saturday. It is as if we did everything on the side of Mr. Poggia who is the magistrate in charge of the police and took the decision to ban the demonstration, to raise the tension and somewhere to legitimize the violation of fundamental rights. to demonstrate.
    To come back to your first question, it is entirely up to the Geneva cantonal authorities to authorize or not a demonstration. The city has no say in authorizing or banning demonstrations. There was a notice from the police and, ultimately, State Councilor Mauro Poggia made the decision by endorsing the notice of his services.
    Was there any intervention by the Confederation? I have no idea, but I don't think so. Because in my opinion, it is not positive for the Confederation that this demonstration was banned. This gave the image of a country that would not be able to deal with possible excesses, and which would prevent people from demonstrating in the name of a potential threat.
    This weakened Switzerland's position in the mediation process, in its neutrality. Many people, following the ban on the demonstration, thought that Switzerland is not neutral, that it is playing Paul Biya's game, which we can only deplore.
    This has given rise to more fantasies and rumors, whereas in a democracy we have the right to clear and transparent communication. This is why I questioned the Geneva Council of State on this subject by sending it an urgent written question so that it could answer us in full transparency. It is important to know whether the Confederation was at least consulted before Mr Poggia decided to ban this demonstration. Because this decision has a direct impact on Switzerland's image and role.

    MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON:
    The decision to ban the demonstration was taken and communicated on Friday, so one day before it took place. An appeal seems to have been lodged with the administrative court. But he seems to have run out of time to rule on it in time. Do you think that all this was done on purpose by the cantonal authorities?

    Sylvain Thévoz:
    No. I really think the police and Mr. Poggia misjudged the potential threat from the protesters. Or because of the July holidays - they felt they did not have sufficient forces to deal with this possible threat. Which is astonishing for a police force which managed the summit in Geneva Biden-Poutine.
    More certainly, they wanted above all to avoid the damage to the image for Geneva, as we had been able to see it in 2019, with press articles that had gone as far as the New York Times, in the international press, where we saw cannons of the Geneva police spray the demonstrators. There was in this ban a desire to preserve the image of Geneva before maintaining democratic rights, the right to demonstrate. This is regrettable. Geneva hosted the Biden-Poutin summit. It still had to be able to contain 200 anti-Biya demonstrators.

    MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON:
    You are one of the public figures of the city of Geneva who worked in 2019 for the Cameroonian president to be declared "persona non grata" in Switzerland. You had also initiated a petition to this effect. Did you see all this trouble coming two years ago? New events are still being announced today.

    Sylvain Thévoz:
    Yes, of course. There is no doubt that the demonstrators are resolute. Each time Paul Biya returns, they will be there to demonstrate, to proclaim their feeling of injustice and the rejection of this character. This is why it is necessary to intervene on the causes of the problem and not its effects. The troublemaker is Paul Biya. He comes to Geneva on a private basis, on vacation, and his safety must be covered by the taxes of the inhabitants, and the image damage is for Geneva. This is not acceptable.

    MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON:
    In Cameroonian opinion, there are voices that maintain that as a man of the Left, you, Sylvain Thévoz, are only in your role; that your opposition to the presence of Paul Biya in Geneva, Switzerland, would thus only have an essentially ideological basis. You cannot have an objective judgment on this matter. Can you tell us, without qualms, without any prejudices, if you really saw this spiral of unrest coming around the presence of Paul Biya in Geneva?

    Sylvain Thévoz:
    Speaking with Cameroonians, Swiss people of Cameroonian origin, they are shocked by the fact that Paul Biya remains in power, with serious doubts about who really leads Cameroon, as well as about electoral process, on his fortune. They see this very old man arrive here, soon at the end of his life, who comes to spend the money that is not his. This is not acceptable, whether one is right or left does not matter in this finding. These are facts.
    You don't have to be Left or Right to find this shocking. Any human being can understand this anger, identify with the oppressed, repressed people in Cameroon and see the inequality behind it. It is not a fight for the Left, but for human rights. A fight for Geneva, which is a city, a canton that likes to claim its peaceful side, to remind people that it is the host city for the signing of the Geneva conventions, and in the service of multilateralism.
    But this role also implies an ethical position, fairness of treatment, and then somewhere an ability to indicate to people, to infrequent personalities, that they are not necessarily welcome, by strengthening somewhat this neutrality that does not want say complacency or collaboration.

    MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON:
    Are you angry today, disappointed that you weren't listened to in 2019?

    Sylvain Thévoz:
    I think I have been heard. I have received a lot of messages of support. The petition has given visibility to this fight and courage to many activists. I am neither angry nor disappointed because I am not naive about the existing balance of power, nor about the complacency of certain circles with the powerful, whether the latter have blood on their hands or not. But I am determined to continue this fight for the defense of human rights.

    MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON*
    From the Right too, who in 2019 opposed your approach?

    Sylvain Thévoz:
    It's not a surprise, when we know that there are people who have little temper, for whom human rights will always come before business and business, and who are so legitimist that if Mr. Biya declares himself Head of State, they will bow down to him.
    I can hear the arguments of those who say “Geneva is a platform of multilateralism, it welcomes hundreds of heads of state every year, and there are many who are not frequentable. So why ban Biya, declare him 'persona non grata' and continue to welcome others? "We could be retorted:" But when there was the Poutine-Biden summit in Geneva, you didn't say anything, you didn't say that Putin must be declared 'persona non grata'. "
    I therefore understand very well the arguments of those who did not want to enter into the matter. For my part, I think that holding this position is destructive in the long term for Geneva. Because afterwards, it becomes much harder and more difficult to be proud of Geneva as a city of peace, as a city of discussion, as a multilateral city, ethical if people come, heads of state, not for discuss there, to do this diplomacy work, but really on vacation. It makes a difference.
    For the Biden-Putin summit, it was politics. They came, they left. If Mr. Poutine came for shopping and went boating on Lake Geneva, I think it would be legitimate to demonstrate, to denounce his presence and his policies.
    I am not angry, angry or disappointed. This is part of the balance of power and a real political debate. What happened last Saturday only shows that it's going to happen again and again. We must do a work of conviction, of protest, but with intelligence to try to convince in any case a majority of the Geneva population that Geneva is not a place that sells out or is given to the highest bidder.

    MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON:
    Are you going to start a new petition to have Paul Biya declared “persona non grata” in Geneva, Switzerland?

    Sylvain Thévoz:
    No, I don't think so. As it stands, given the balance of power in parliament, this petition would be treated in the same way as the previous one, it would be evacuated. If we have to come back with a parliamentary object at the Geneva level, we must find another angle of attack.

    MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON*:
    What for example?

    *Sylvain Thév:
    I submitted an urgent written question. I await the responses of the Council of State concerning the ban on the demonstration. We need to better understand the issues concerning Paul Biya, the role of Switzerland especially in mediation.
    From there, you may need to drop other items. But above all, we must continue to demonstrate, write, speak, get together, to create a balance of power that is positive for us. All the means are good for that, at the parliamentary level as extra-parliamentary.

    MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON:
    If Mr. Paul Biya were to stay in Switzerland for humanitarian reasons, to seek treatment for example, will you still oppose it?

    Sylvain Thévoz:
    What bothers me is the lack of transparency, it's opacity, the inability to have factual elements on this subject. This shadow theater does little for democracy. If he comes for humanitarian reasons, why hide him?

    MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON:
    "Swiss mediation gets bogged down in the face of conflict in the English-speaking regions of Cameroon" headlined the Swiss newspaper, Le Temps , in a July 4 publication. After having raised hopes, Switzerland would now be criticized, including by European diplomats in Yaoundé, we can read in this newspaper. Do you have an opinion on this question?

    Sylvain Thévoz:
    I think this mediation is complicated. I am missing some elements so that I can fully judge this one. The only thing I can say is that the action of the Geneva government and the ban on this demonstration made things more complex and difficult. Councilor of State Poggia made an error of assessment. It is now up to the Confederation to repair the broken pieces. Switzerland's credibility is at stake. The mediator finds himself exposed. It's never good.

It is as if we did everything on the side of Mr. Poggia who is the magistrate in charge of the police and took the decision to ban the demonstration, to raise the tension and somewhere to legitimize the violation of fundamental rights. to demonstrate. To come back to your first question, it is entirely up to the Geneva cantonal authorities to authorize or not a demonstration. The city has no say in authorizing or banning demonstrations. There was a notice from the police and, ultimately, State Councilor Mauro Poggia made the decision by endorsing the notice of his services. Was there any intervention by the Confederation? I have no idea, but I don't think so. Because in my opinion, it is not positive for the Confederation that this demonstration was banned. This gave the image of a country that would not be able to deal with possible excesses, and which would prevent people from demonstrating in the name of a potential threat. This weakened Switzerland's position in the mediation process, in its neutrality. Many people, following the ban on the demonstration, thought that Switzerland is not neutral, that it is playing Paul Biya's game, which we can only deplore. This has given rise to more fantasies and rumors, whereas in a democracy we have the right to clear and transparent communication. This is why I questioned the Geneva Council of State on this subject by sending it an urgent written question so that it could answer us in full transparency. It is important to know whether the Confederation was at least consulted before Mr Poggia decided to ban this demonstration. Because this decision has a direct impact on Switzerland's image and role. MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON: The decision to ban the demonstration was taken and communicated on Friday, so one day before it took place. An appeal seems to have been lodged with the administrative court. But he seems to have run out of time to rule on it in time. Do you think that all this was done on purpose by the cantonal authorities? Sylvain Thévoz: No. I really think the police and Mr. Poggia misjudged the potential threat from the protesters. Or because of the July holidays - they felt they did not have sufficient forces to deal with this possible threat. Which is astonishing for a police force which managed the summit in Geneva Biden-Poutine. More certainly, they wanted above all to avoid the damage to the image for Geneva, as we had been able to see it in 2019, with press articles that had gone as far as the New York Times, in the international press, where we saw cannons of the Geneva police spray the demonstrators. There was in this ban a desire to preserve the image of Geneva before maintaining democratic rights, the right to demonstrate. This is regrettable. Geneva hosted the Biden-Poutin summit. It still had to be able to contain 200 anti-Biya demonstrators. MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON: You are one of the public figures of the city of Geneva who worked in 2019 for the Cameroonian president to be declared "persona non grata" in Switzerland. You had also initiated a petition to this effect. Did you see all this trouble coming two years ago? New events are still being announced today. Sylvain Thévoz: Yes, of course. There is no doubt that the demonstrators are resolute. Each time Paul Biya returns, they will be there to demonstrate, to proclaim their feeling of injustice and the rejection of this character. This is why it is necessary to intervene on the causes of the problem and not its effects. The troublemaker is Paul Biya. He comes to Geneva on a private basis, on vacation, and his safety must be covered by the taxes of the inhabitants, and the image damage is for Geneva. This is not acceptable. MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON: In Cameroonian opinion, there are voices that maintain that as a man of the Left, you, Sylvain Thévoz, are only in your role; that your opposition to the presence of Paul Biya in Geneva, Switzerland, would thus only have an essentially ideological basis. You cannot have an objective judgment on this matter. Can you tell us, without qualms, without any prejudices, if you really saw this spiral of unrest coming around the presence of Paul Biya in Geneva? Sylvain Thévoz: Speaking with Cameroonians, Swiss people of Cameroonian origin, they are shocked by the fact that Paul Biya remains in power, with serious doubts about who really leads Cameroon, as well as about electoral process, on his fortune. They see this very old man arrive here, soon at the end of his life, who comes to spend the money that is not his. This is not acceptable, whether one is right or left does not matter in this finding. These are facts. You don't have to be Left or Right to find this shocking. Any human being can understand this anger, identify with the oppressed, repressed people in Cameroon and see the inequality behind it. It is not a fight for the Left, but for human rights. A fight for Geneva, which is a city, a canton that likes to claim its peaceful side, to remind people that it is the host city for the signing of the Geneva conventions, and in the service of multilateralism. But this role also implies an ethical position, fairness of treatment, and then somewhere an ability to indicate to people, to infrequent personalities, that they are not necessarily welcome, by strengthening somewhat this neutrality that does not want say complacency or collaboration. MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON: Are you angry today, disappointed that you weren't listened to in 2019? Sylvain Thévoz: I think I have been heard. I have received a lot of messages of support. The petition has given visibility to this fight and courage to many activists. I am neither angry nor disappointed because I am not naive about the existing balance of power, nor about the complacency of certain circles with the powerful, whether the latter have blood on their hands or not. But I am determined to continue this fight for the defense of human rights. MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON* From the Right too, who in 2019 opposed your approach? Sylvain Thévoz: It's not a surprise, when we know that there are people who have little temper, for whom human rights will always come before business and business, and who are so legitimist that if Mr. Biya declares himself Head of State, they will bow down to him. I can hear the arguments of those who say “Geneva is a platform of multilateralism, it welcomes hundreds of heads of state every year, and there are many who are not frequentable. So why ban Biya, declare him 'persona non grata' and continue to welcome others? "We could be retorted:" But when there was the Poutine-Biden summit in Geneva, you didn't say anything, you didn't say that Putin must be declared 'persona non grata'. " I therefore understand very well the arguments of those who did not want to enter into the matter. For my part, I think that holding this position is destructive in the long term for Geneva. Because afterwards, it becomes much harder and more difficult to be proud of Geneva as a city of peace, as a city of discussion, as a multilateral city, ethical if people come, heads of state, not for discuss there, to do this diplomacy work, but really on vacation. It makes a difference. For the Biden-Putin summit, it was politics. They came, they left. If Mr. Poutine came for shopping and went boating on Lake Geneva, I think it would be legitimate to demonstrate, to denounce his presence and his policies. I am not angry, angry or disappointed. This is part of the balance of power and a real political debate. What happened last Saturday only shows that it's going to happen again and again. We must do a work of conviction, of protest, but with intelligence to try to convince in any case a majority of the Geneva population that Geneva is not a place that sells out or is given to the highest bidder. MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON: Are you going to start a new petition to have Paul Biya declared “persona non grata” in Geneva, Switzerland? Sylvain Thévoz: No, I don't think so. As it stands, given the balance of power in parliament, this petition would be treated in the same way as the previous one, it would be evacuated. If we have to come back with a parliamentary object at the Geneva level, we must find another angle of attack. MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON*: What for example? *Sylvain Thév: I submitted an urgent written question. I await the responses of the Council of State concerning the ban on the demonstration. We need to better understand the issues concerning Paul Biya, the role of Switzerland especially in mediation. From there, you may need to drop other items. But above all, we must continue to demonstrate, write, speak, get together, to create a balance of power that is positive for us. All the means are good for that, at the parliamentary level as extra-parliamentary. MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON: If Mr. Paul Biya were to stay in Switzerland for humanitarian reasons, to seek treatment for example, will you still oppose it? Sylvain Thévoz: What bothers me is the lack of transparency, it's opacity, the inability to have factual elements on this subject. This shadow theater does little for democracy. If he comes for humanitarian reasons, why hide him? MUNTUNEWS CAMEROON: "Swiss mediation gets bogged down in the face of conflict in the English-speaking regions of Cameroon" headlined the Swiss newspaper, Le Temps , in a July 4 publication. After having raised hopes, Switzerland would now be criticized, including by European diplomats in Yaoundé, we can read in this newspaper. Do you have an opinion on this question? Sylvain Thévoz: I think this mediation is complicated. I am missing some elements so that I can fully judge this one. The only thing I can say is that the action of the Geneva government and the ban on this demonstration made things more complex and difficult. Councilor of State Poggia made an error of assessment. It is now up to the Confederation to repair the broken pieces. Switzerland's credibility is at stake. The mediator finds himself exposed. It's never good. #freesoutherncameroons

  • Two mothers killed in Pinyin military raid

    Two mothers killed in a Pinyin military raid
    Two mothers were shot in Pinyin, Mezam Division in the North West region today.

    Residents of the said village currently on the run say they were shot by soldiers who invaded their homes in the early hours of the day. The army, they say, blames villagers for being related to separatist fighters, reason for the attack.

    The situation in Pinyin, they say, is worsened by the rains that have left them in the bushes with no shelter.

    The military invasion of Pinyin comes after some soldiers were killed by separatist fighters last week.

    It also follows the killing and beheading of a military man in Babadjou, West region today.

    “Many people have been arrested and two women confirmed to be mothers of ‘amba boys’ have been shot and killed. They were pulled from their houses and killed,” another source confirms.

    The death toll remains unknown as the attack ensues.

  • AT LEAST 807 ANGLOPHONE CAMEROONIANS KILLED IN FIRST SIX MONTHS OF BIDEN ADMINISTRATION. TIME TO END THIS BLOODSHED. (DETAILS, IMAGES OF KILLINGS)
    by AGL

    Africans in America who were enthusiastic about Biden's ability to end the genocide in English Cameroon are increasingly losing hope. With Biden's resume as former Chairman of the powerful Senate Foreign Relations Committee and with a video of his fiery opposition to Apartheid widely shared in African forums, many believed Biden will be swift in ending the neocolonial wars plaguing the continent. Six months on, Biden's Assistant Secretary for Africa has refused to say anything about the daily killings and destruction in Anglophone Cameroon despite daily evidence on their social media handles etc. The predecessor Tibor Nagy was unrelenting in calling for action to end the civil war. Five months into the killings, the bare mention of the conflict by the Biden administration was last month when his Secretary of State Antony Blinken, promised to sanction those impeding the resolution of the conflict. So far, the regime of Paul Biya continues to act with impunity - killing, maiming, jailing and erasing villages in English Cameroon(Ambazonia). The English-speaking people like in South Africa are being "Excoriated", but the once fiery Biden, now in position of power is mute.

    sThe Swiss process earlier echoed by his predecessor (Trump Administration and allies) has received no attention neither is any American initiative to end one of the continent's dirtiest wars. The killings have continued unperturbed thanks to deliberate falsification of historical facts by French Cameroun, France and the UN. The war in English Cameroon is the easiest conflict to resolve in the world if history and truths are guiding values of the global system headed by the US. History holds it that British and French Cameroons came together in 1961 as two independent entities to form a union of two equals. The silence by the West headed by the US since 2oth January 2021, has not stopped the killings. For the past six months, at least 800 innocent British Southern Cameroonians (Ambazonians) have been killed. Several villages have equally been burnt by the French Cameroun soldiers who are now called colonial or occupying soldiers. Below is the monthly tallies since January 2021, when President Biden took office.
    AT LEAST 138 KILLED IN January 2021 Killings

    MAUTU KILLING OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN, 10 JANUARY, 2021.

    The shooting was indiscriminate; women, children and men. Shattered bodies, punctured faces from the French-supplied bullets. After tying the hands of others and shooting in the nearby bushes, the arrogant soldiers were non-repentant. “A soldier told us to go check in the bushes nearby for more bodies.” a survivor tells reporters. “He was a good Satan.” she intimated. The French Cameroun soldiers backed by France invaded the farming community of Mautu, near Buea-Limbe in British Cameroon where CAF in the days ahead has scheduled her African Nations Football Championship (CHAN), from January 16 to February 7, 2021. The French Cameroun soldiers invaded Mautu, Southern part of the occupied territory of British Southern Cameroon on Sunday afternoon 10 January, 2020, shooting indiscriminately. “We have counted six bodies now,” a sympathizer narrates. At the end nine were killed with others wounded. (Click here for details with pictures and videos).

    MAUMU 21st January, 2021: The wailing by the villagers sum up the pain of the family of one of the innocent farmers who received more than 15 bullets from the French Cameroun young recruits on 21 January, 2021. This was not the first time that the said appointed French Cameroun Colonial Governor - Okalia Bilai is sending the French Cameroun Bulubeti militias into the farming village of Maumu. The last time, the same soldiers were on a killing and burning spree in the village (Click here for videos of the burning).

    At Least 103 Killed in February 2021 Killings:

    The month began with more horror news, like in Momo County where the French Cameroun Soldiers roasted alive a baby in the village of Tiben. The image of the father Mr. Ndi with the charred body of the baby was excruciating. The military had invaded the village on 11 February, 2021.(Click here for Details, images and videos here) .

    THREE KINGS KILLED BY FRENCH CAMEROUN SOLDIERS IN LEBIALEM: In Lebialem in a bid to turn the population against the Ambazonia Restoration Forces in the area, three local chiefs(Kings) were executed by the French Cameroun Soldiers. Eye witness say the French Cameroun military invaded the farming village of Essoh Atah, Lebialem County in anglophone Cameroon (British Southern Cameroon/Ambazonia) on 13-14 February, 2021. Alongside with informants (alleged to be ex-fighters of Ambazonian forces in the area) assembled the villagers, claiming to be there for their good. The lead informant in the name of Njinjuh Christopher then singled out three local kings said to be loyal to one of the Ambazonian Freedom fighters in the area. The French Cameroun military then publicly-executed the three kings alongside five other civilians. (Click here for details, images and videos). #freesoutherncameroons

  • My fellow Ambazonians

    Our brave fighters from Bui, Boyo, Kupe, and Mezam have continued their assault on the enemy, inflicting heavy casualties, material damage, and psychologically demoralizing the enemy. This is the pathway to victory, and we must continue to commit to a holistic plan that delegitimizes Cameroun, bankrupt it economically, demoralize its soldiers but on the other hand, consolidate our gains, stabilizes the liberation effort, and inspire our forces to undertake more actions. A combination of these approaches wins us international respect and shatters Cameroun's international image as a credible partner and an anchor for stability. My sincere appreciation to all those men and women who continue to fight and die so that our children will never be afraid to be called Ambazonians. My deep appreciation to our entire population for respecting Kontrisunday. It is giving the enemy nightmares. Continue until victory is achieved.

    Fellow Ambazonians

    These GZ activities will continue to strengthen our hands in international diplomacy. We must be reminded of my pledge to ensure that Ambazonia negotiates as a people. That is why we have accepted an invitation from the CDN Council of Elders to discuss this possibility. We are against using the same elites, who insist on outcomes wherein their interest is protected and who project platforms that promise such desires. Despite our misgivings, it is important to reserve judgement until proven otherwise. We want a new Ambazonia. Not a cloned Cameroun. On another front, the AGOVC has restated and clarified its position with respect to negotiations. This was necessitated by some international representation. The AGOVC remains committed to a multilaterally led negotiations process. Cameroun must commit. No hide-and-seek diplomacy.

    We have laid a nationalistic foundation in our struggle. Our strong and uncompromising stances have strengthened Ambazonia's resolve and won the admiration of our friends and foes. We have not blinked in the face of populist drive for shortcuts. We have insisted on a pathway that guarantees independence. The posture of the AGOVC turned nchangshoeboys into machinegun assaulting warriors. The strong posture of the AGOVC changed agitators to Liberators and is gradually changing the international systems cosmetic window dressing diplomatic approaches to restore the status quo into a process that guarantees an outcome for justice and peace. Our posture will not change the cause 60 years that eroded the foundation of nationalism and bred more agitators than nationalists, but it will guarantee that we are never robbed again. Liberation theory demands unwavering leadership that tunnels through tough mountains to the promised land. The AGOVC leadership is now comfortable to engage to provide the leadership required to build consensus positions and integrate the stakes of others into its liberation agenda. That is why I have reached out to try to make peace in the Moghamo area and find a solution that helps us stabilize Momo and take full control. This will not be easy as former CPDM elites within the Momo Cartel equates freedom to the defeat of cronyism and elitism that benefits a few. Despite the difficulties, we will continue to work with those who believe that we can stabilize Momo easily if we work together. These elites have manipulated the population along tribal lines. They have instrumentalized fighters, abandoned them, and only use them to draft money which has been embezzled. We must put an end to this machination and gross abuse of our population. We will work for a consensus position but are ready and capable of imposing one using force. Watch the video accompanying this message to see the abysmal of our people.

    The enemy camp is confused. It can no longer rely on force and bribing enablers. Cheap and childish propaganda is now a weapon of choice. It has engaged in the circulation of fake flyers. These flyers are being propagated by their internal beneficiaries. There are no shortcuts to Freedom. Freedom winners must sacrifice, work hard, work on a foundation of truth and see competition as a healthy instrument in innovation. You cannot blackmail your way to the top; however successful, you will not last. Your victory must be based on merit, hard work, and the presentation of a better model. Cameroun and its internal beneficiaries have relied on propaganda, violence, and continuous intoxication. It has never worked in liberation struggles. I call on our people to remain steadfast. The strategy of our liberation ensures an outcome that guarantees both political and economic independence. It creates an enabling environment for an alternative educational system, a bottom-up economic model, and rewards productivity and ownership of the factors of production and a political system that reflects our socio-cultural realities. To achieve these outcomes, persistence and consistency are required. This month we raised 14000 dollars for our forces. We are meeting again in a few weeks to mobilise more resources for the war effort. Until Amba is truly free, we will neither blink nor relent. #ambazonia #freesoutherncameroons

    The Quest for Freedom Cannot be Championed by People Who are Imprisoned by their Own Greed for Material wellbeing and Thirst for Power for its Own Sake, Religious Believes, Psycho-traumatic Disorders and Socio-economic Inadequacies. The blind cannot be led by the blind. Freedom fighters are mentally, spiritually and psychologically free. They are not held hostage by their political and tribal affiliations, family encumbrances and environmental constraints. They are as free as the birds in the skies.

    Make no mistake to give your quest for freedom to be handled by merchants, they will sell it for peanuts below the market price because they want to make quick cash while it lasts. Don't fall into the trap of handing it to tribal warlords and fanatics of religious and political organizations, they will turn it into what they are indoctrinated to believe or follow. Quite often revolutions that succeed are either auto driven or championed by freedom fighters not breadwinners. Auto driven revolutions count on each member of the affected population who go out for what they want at all cost. When individuals do the same thing, they are most likely to succeed as a collective with or without leadership. However, when members of a sample population are not on the same platform, they definitely need astute leadership to drive the revolution to success.

    In the light of revolutions that need leadership, people should take lessons on the psychology of the oppressed. A careful study of most of the people of Ambazonia show that the people have suffered so much so that they have lost their self-esteem and become mentally and psychologically depraved. There are signs and symptoms that show how vulnerable they have become. For instance, they're nothing before the following whom they literally just submit to their bidding whether for good or ill:
    1) Those who have gone abroad (Diaspora). In fact this is a big qualification and honorific position which automatically solicit followership. When Diaspora speaks the home front must listen. The false notion is that the diaspora has the money and knowledge hence he who pays the piper dictates the tune.
    2) The rich. These folks have a lot of power over the poor and the local population. See how the population listen to the rich irrespective of whether they have something to offer or not.
    3) Those who leave the village and settle in towns come back to wield so much power back home. Some of those who come back from the cities are literally worshipped.
    4) Religious leaders wield much power over our people whether they preach truth or lies. Our people are literally held prisoners to some of their doctrines and dogmas. Preach freedom as much as you can, they will listen to their pastors who have indoctrinated them to think they are the way, the truth and the light. People are ready to make sure their pastors live in paradise on earth but teach them to wait for their paradise in heaven. Riches are condemned and earthly bliss is seem as evil for the lay but good for the religious unquestionably.
    5) Government officials. Our people look up to all people on government payroll as God's chosen people. They're blessed with a matriculation number which entitles them to a monthly paycheck and a license to steal from the government treasury and the people. There is no problem with arrests, kidnappings and ransom taking from government militias but there is a problem with civilians doing same in the name of Ambazonia fighters.
    6) Francophone in Cameroun are first class citizens and anglophones fit in so well as second class citizens. Many elite from the anglophone section of the Cameroons find it difficult to contest for the position of president and are worried when someone speaks against the president whom they worship.
    7) Whites are superior to all blacks in all circumstances and have been schooled in schools and churches to know and believe so. The concept of a white Jesus and a black Satan is engraved in our minds. We have been made to reject our local names, traditional doctors and medicine and ancestors in praise of foreign names, ancestors and what they call modern medicine. We discard our roots and identify with foreign concepts, ideologies and actors. Yes, we make blacks simply look ridiculous and white and anything he does appear welcoming.
    8) The further we drift away from the village setting the more important we become. It is imbibed in our conscience that Buea and Bamenda are more important than Akwaya and Kom. Similarly in terms of Ranking Yaounde and Douala are more important than Buea and Bamenda. By the same token, London and Paris means more to us than our national capitals. Where you come from or associate with determines how you are upheld amongst your people.
    9) Clothes, food and drinks, housing, sports and leisurely activities are as important as where they come from and who is promoting them. Come to see how our people die to watch western championships as opposed to local wrestling matches and local soccer! It tells you that our people have been chained and imprisoned by their preferences. They're no longer themselves. They're sick. They need a cure more serious than just the music about freedom. Like one of the animals in George Orwell's Animal Farm, most are asking, will there be sugar after the revolution?

    We could continue to go on and on to make our situation continue to look more ridiculous and unreasonable but that is our reality. Any freedom fighter in our context must take care of this reality. Unfortunately, most of the front line freedom fighters are entangled by their own limitations thus the major fact is the blind cannot lead the blind. You cannot champion independence when you're held prisoner by your own greed for wealth and power and church dogma or worship of the West and their ways etc.

    Please, don't be too quick to blame Amba boys when they follow orders from fake leadership abroad. They're a product of their reality and psychological baggage. If they listen to orders from greedy numbskulls abroad and kill their fellow brothers in arms or ruin our chances of getting free asap, please, kindly seek to cure them for they are sick. If we want freedom, we have to begin by accepting who we are, build our self-esteem and feel free to improve on our lot according to our means and circumstances.
