Two years since Southern Cameroonians declared the restoration of their country-Ambazonia

Today 22nd of September marks exactly 2 years the interim president Sisiku Ayuk Tabe Julius of the republic of southern Cameroons Ambazonia declared on the behalf of its people the restoration of their state as millions took to the streets with peace plants celebrating their independence:

22th Sept 2017 to 22th Sept 2019. Two years gone!

On this day the President of La Republique du Cameroun was addressing the United Nation General Assembly in New York. The peaceful people of Southern Cameroons brandished peace plants in a nationwide demonstration in that territory to express the end of an illegal occupation and unsigned union.

On this day, there was no single gun in the territory of Southern Cameroons to fight whoever. On his return from New York, Biya with his cohorts planned the extermination of Southern Cameroonians. Arbitrary arrests, Violent clamp down on peaceful demonstrators, shooting and killing of unarmed civilians, burning of homes and villages, looting of property and rape etc etc…

About 2 years ago, Biya declared war on the people of Southern Cameroons. They took up what ever weapon they had to rightly and legitimately defend themselves against what looked like a planned genocide against the people of Southern Cameroons.

La Rep du Cameroun colonial forces went on a rampage: Arrested and tortured suspects, Burnt down 123 villages, Killing priests and pastors, looting business, raping women and sought to erase southern Cameroons culture.

Less than a year ago, we saw Paul Atanga Nji and Dione Ngute parading the streets with the same Peace Plants offered them in 2017, while they continued with their inpunity.

Today Mr. Biya organizes his “Bialogue” with the intention of fooling the world while he continues to kill and maim Southern Cameroonians.The International community has reacted as an accomplice as they observe Biya massacre the people of southern Cameroons without any action taken against him: Today we count more than 200 villages attacked and burnt down; more half a million displaced and over 100,000 as refugees in neighboring Nigeria 🇳🇬 and countries some even dying at the Mexican borders in Latin America trying to escape to USA :

Bui SDO Simon Emile Mooh should be held responsible for the genocide and atrocities in Kumbo

Kumbo- Nso Bui

For a year now the silence of the SDO for Bui Simon Emile Moh who took over from the peace loving Nzeki Theophile, the man who despite the evil plans and intentions of the regime could still come out and calm the population and speak out on the atrocities with the out going D.O Kamto Francis must come to an end else he be considered the brain behind all the atrocities and genocide in going in Kumbo – Bui and therefore face the tune.

Mooh Emile Simon

Nji Emile Simon Mooh SDO for Bui is notorious for his deliberate silence on the killing of civilians in Kumbo. Since the burning of civilian crops in Tadu, the massacre of kids in Oku, the firing squad meted on civilians in Tayaf and Waiynamah, the burning of homes in Kitiwum and Tadu, the attacks in Mbiame, the killing of 3 members of a family by the military truck, the killing of 8 civilians at Berlem -Dzeng area etc etc…, the SDO has NEVER altered a single word nor explanation.

He and his brutal soldiers have instead join the NWR Governor (Dogvernor) Lele L’Afrique on a stupid campaign asking civilians not to be afraid of the military, not to run when they see them coming…

Lele l’Afrique

On Thursday, a more than 100 soldiers arrived Kumbo on brand new white Toyota Stouts. They went over to Bambui ( a quarter in Kumbo) and did some war games before proceeding to Kumbo Town and started harassing and arresting civilians around Squares. They abducted builders at a construction site and took them to the Brigade and asked them pay a “bail” of 15,000frs each. This the SDO remained mute yet asking the civilians to stay as they are protected. That is the protection he is giving them by conniving with the military to extort money and terrorize the poor  masses.

To make matters worse, yesterday they obstructed the vegetables market women several times as they harassed and abducted any man they saw around Kumbo Central town. Shey Meyo and Shey Kucha were whisked off to the Gendamerie for standing beside his door and for transporting beer to his bar respectively. A bike was chased towards Vebarong for transporting a patient to the hospital! Despite the fact that Kumbo people have been calm ignoring the provocations of the military, this SDO’s silence might be the reason for more atrocities, meaning that he endorses all the actions of the colonial military forces.

Many people have been abducted this weekend and asked to pay “bails” before release. With the regime refusing to dialogue with the people , where do they expect the population to get the money for these ‘bails’ which is what the military uses as allowances to survive.

If the SDO does not take immediate action to stop this, and put the colonial military into book, he shall not only be Booked like other colonial SDOs to the Hague and charged for remaining silent in the face of an organized genocide but face draconian sanctions from the angry population.

Bloody Day in Kumbo leaving 7 lives wasted

Berlem- Kumbo Bui County

Seven civilians shot and killed by La Rep colonial forces forces today in Berlem an outskirts of Kumbo towards Mbiame.

These 7 Motorbike riders were on their way from a village known as Mbam through Dzeng in the Nkum Sub County on a condolence visit to a family member that lost the brother.

La Rep military connived with the Mbororos of Berlem who of late had been in conflict with the ‘Amba Boys’ (name given to the Southern Cameroons or Ambazonian self defense forces) and attacked the boys shooting them one after another. They took from one Mbororo what is known as ‘Odeshi’ a certain local necklace, bangle or chain claimed to have supernatural powers sometimes made with cowries and a red piece of cloth and tied in the neck, waist or hand as protection against the enemy and used on each of the boys before killing them to portray as ‘Amba Boys’.  The same ‘Odeshi’ was used on each of the boys before being shot as you can see from the Images. These civilians were unarmed, yet they chose to waste their lives.

Photo credit Doh Emmanuel Sama:

When they realised their blunder that “Amba Boys” would move with weapons to defend themselves and these civilians were unarmed, they brought our their cartridges (bullets) and took pictures of them as using their own guns would betray them the more.

One will wonder why the Mbororos would connive with the La Rep military to massacre innocent civilians, but the action is linked to a tension and misunderstanding that occurred few  days ago when SCs Restoration forces attempted to arrest one Mbororo armed robber who was also referred to as a traitor, (acting as an informant to the military against the Amba boys) who narrowly escaped. His name we got as Issa later escaped from Berlem to Takui when the arrest failed, due to the assistance of other Mbororos who resisted the arrest.

In the confrontation, one Mbororo lost his life. The Mbororos as it is rumored hinted their leader Mallam Ndawara Dan Pullo, an influential and rich man in the regime who reacted and ordered for the military to attack the population. The military arrived Dzeng the next village after Berlem towards Mbiame, shot and killed one civilian, took away properties and burnt down houses and shops.

Yesterday two military trucks mixed with Mbororos left Kumbo for the same crisis area which has angered the population following a series of harassment left and right. This has provoked the “Amba boys” who have sworn to avenge the death of the innocent civilians.  By the time of our contact with our informant, we learnt a fierce battle was taking place between the Mbororos and the “Amba boys”.

Cameroon: Nso: Titles in the Paramount Fondom of Nso (part 3) Fai

If you missed part one on Nso Titles, do not worry, you can still read part 1 here; and part 2 here;

II-2. FAI

The highest rank of Fai is the Atarntoh (all Nchelav), with the “Atarntoh ve Samba”, leading this group. These are family heads of some of the most influential lineages in Nso. In Fact some of them actually submitted themselves to Nso as Fons between 1450 and 1800, but it is unknown why they were made Nwerong leaders instead of Duy or Mtaar Vibai.

Unlike the Vibai who are councilors of the court, the primary role of the Atarntoh is that of Palace stewards, priests and guardians of the royal household. Atarntoh also sometimes act as advisers to the Fon.

In addition, the Atarntoh are members of the “Shishwaa” society whose principal duty is to keep Nso land free of famine. “Shishwaa” members are also responsible for protecting Nso institutions from any destruction and also act as the Fon’s peace envoys.

Here in order of seniority are the “Atarntoh ve Samba

1. Fai Maamo (Nchelav)

2. Fai Faanjang (Nchelav)

3. Fai Mbingiy (Nchelav/Mtaar)

4. Fai Kuyntoh Nchelav (Nchelav)

5. Fai Kuynseh (Nchelav)

6. Fai Tsenkay (Nchelav)

7. Fai Nseeni (Nchelav)

All “Atarntoh ve samba” are only lower in rank to the ten (10) ” Vibai ve tiy se taakibu”.

The next category of Fais is the “Won jemer se Fon” (the Fon’s sisters’ sons). Since most of these are Mtaar (aboriginal Nso), they have a separate quarter called TaaMban (next to Nwerong’s compound). Their principal duty is to carry out inquisitions, expiatory sacrifices and cleansing rituals.

Here in order of seniority are the Fai “Won jemer ve samba

1. Fai Nsame (Mtaar)

2. Fai Mbivtinmbang (Mtaar)

3. Fai Kii Mbala Nseeni (Mtaar)

4. Fai Jem Njavnyuy (Mtaar)

5. Fai Menjey Tooy (Mtaar)

6. Fai Jem Kinga (Mtaar)

7. Fai Kii Kiyan (Mtaar)

All “Won jemer se Fon” are higher in rank to ” Vibai ve duy ve kpu”.

The last category of Fais are lineage or sub-lineage heads. There are scores of Fais (too many to be listed) in this category and are drawn from all the segments of Nso society the commoners (Nchelav), the aboriginals (Mtaar) and the extended royal family (Duy). All Fais in this category are lower in rank to all Vibais, the Atarntohs and “Won jemer”

The process of en-stooling is elaborate, grande and very public, whether the Fai assumes the stool by inheritance, extension (“kisheer”), elevation (from Shey) or appointment by the Fon (fhum or buh).
