Chris Anu maintains Anglophones’ Ultimatum

‘If by end of Monday 5th February 2018, no video footages of the Anglophone leaders are seen, La Rep Du Cameroon will hear from the IG.’ Chris Anu

Chris Anu Beats Isa Tchiroma pants down in an interview granted today by The Voice of America over the fate of the Anglophone leaders. Chris insists that the Monday ultimatum holds and that if after this day the evidence about the whereabouts of the arrested leaders is not seen with video footages, Cameroon will hear from the IG. He says this might not necessarily happen today but after today. He backs his claims with the atrocities carried out in the people saying that it is not heard of in the world that people are arrested and it takes a month without anything known about them.

Isa in his part could only repeat the same song, ‘Anything we are doing is according to they law, they are alive and are being taken care of, we will not succumb to threats as a government…’ went ahead to claim these secessionists have killed about 20 Gendarmes . Must this man always lie?

He went ahead to vindicate Ngah Christian of the Guardian post who was stopped yesterday by Joe during the press hour from using the word extradition but that Anglophone leaders were deported. When Ngah tried to argue that He did not have to use exact words, Joe hammered stating that Isa never used them. Today he used to very clearly and even claiming that Nigeria and Cameroon do have some conventions on that. He will surely put Nigeria into more trouble as more evidences will be demanded . Well we know they are hiding behind the Boko Haram deal to blackmail each other and the Biafra struggle which Chris already taught them the difference.
In fact Chris gave Tchiroma and la Rep a lesson on that interview.

The journalist himself knew his job. He gave Chris hard questions but got convincing answers while Tchiroma was challenged to produce the leaders of face the wrath of the people later when the consequences arrive.

A call to Stop Roger Milla & Co from Buea

  1. Buea-Cameroon: Stop peace Rally of Roger Milla, Samuel Eto & Song R. Bahanag

Roger & Co

 

The IG Communications Minister Chris Anu has called for a complete boycott and Stop of a peace Rally organized in Buea tomorrow Sunday the 10th of December 2017 by great football icons.

In an audio released on this subject, Mr Anu argues that these players have never condemned any killings perpetrated La Rep Regime but Samuel Eto was quick to go to Libya to liberate the few Francophones from slavery.

The IG Minister for SCs has called for these sports men and women to organize these peaceful rallies first in la Rep regions condemning the atrocities of the regime in Southern Cameroons.

(By ShuSheey Barrister AKUWIYADZE)
===============
I won’t go to court on the 02.05.2017.

No, Mr. President of the Cameroon Bar Council, I won’t go to court on the 02.05.2017.

Business people in West Cameroon have lost income from sales by adhering to Ghost Towns. Some have seen their fortune go up in flames! What have they got in return?

If I should go to court on the 02.05.2017 or thereafter:

1. ALL our brothers and sisters arrested as a result of the strike action that we (Common Law Lawyers) started on the 11.10.2016 must be UNCONDITIONALLY RELEASED (with guarantees that there won’t be any further arbitrary arrests).

2. Internet Connection cut off from West Cameroon on 18.01.2017 must be re-instated.

3. The towns and villages of West Cameroon flooded with soldiers, must be de-militarized.

When the above pre-conditions would have been met, dialogue will resume so that the problem of marginalization of Anglophones in Cameroon is dealt with once and for all. The time is Now!

Is this a poem?
No, Mr. President of the Cameroon Bar Council, I won’t go to court on the 02.05.2017 or any date thereafter as I’m ready to boycott the courts for two years (renewable) until JUSTICE is done and seen to have been done to us.

Lawyers Call Off Strike and to return to Courts 2nd May: True of False

There is an unofficial letter circulating all over social media supposedly written by The Bar President Jackson NGNIE KAMGA esq and stated that it is done in Douala and not in any of the Anglophone area. Below is the soft copy of it without any letterhead, neither a stamp nor a signature.

lawyers striking

PRESS RELEASE OF THE BAR ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT

Following the extraordinary Bar Council meetings held respectively in Buea and Bamenda on the Saturdays 18th and 25th March 2017, which meetings were immediately followed by working sessions between lawyers of the two Anglophone regions and the Bar Council,

It was recommended that a unique framework comprising of very senior advocates from the North West and South West regions be set up to reflect on the way forward.

By The Bar President Decision No N° 038/BOABC/ADM/03/17 of 31st of March 2017, a conclave of senior advocates of the North West and South West regions to which some junior colleagues were integrated to elaborate the modalities of the way forward, was set up with the missions of making proposals on the way forward.

The conclave met in Bamenda on the 1st of April 2017 and in Buea on the 8th of April 2017.

Mindful of Government’s response to the demands of the Anglophone lawyers as announced by the Minister of State in charge of Justice ,during his press conference of the 30th of March 2017 , and the creation by the Minister of Public Services of an adhoc committee in charge of organizing the special recruitment of Common Law magistrates and judicial officers,
The conclave unanimously came up with the following recommendations:

1- That the President of the Bar Association is hereby authorized to enter into dialogue with the Government on matters bearing on the Common Law Lawyers.

2- That Advocates of the South West and North West regions shall resume work on the 2nd may 2017, for the resolutions of the ad hoc committee submitted to the Prime Minister and approved by the Head of States to be fully implemented

3- That this conclave shall be convened on the 30th July 2017 to evaluate progress made on the implementation of these resolutions.
On behalf of the Bar Council, the Batonnier sincerely thanks his colleagues of these two regions for this renewed confidence bestowed on the ruling organs of the Bar Association.

He especially thanks the members of the conclave who made enormous sacrifices and walked the extra mile to ensure the normalization of our activities.

He is mindful of all their recommendations, and announces that the lawyers in the North West and South West regions will resume work on the 2nd of May 2017.

He pledges to continue negotiations with the Government in order to satisfy the demands of the common law lawyers as well as the release of our two colleagues currently under detention in Yaoundé.

In the days ahead, the Batonnier, with a delegation of Bar Council members will travel to Buea and Bamenda to meet the heads of these jurisdictions in order to discuss and define concrete modalities for the resumption of work.

The Batonnier stresses that the return to normal is the fruit of dialogue between the Government and the Bar Association, dialogue which should be perpetuated and reinforced in a determined and responsible manner

Done in Douala this 9th April 2017

The Bar President

Jackson NGNIE KAMGA esq.

The copy of this letter in French is also presented by Cameroon-info.net on the link here:

Analysis:

Comments gathered from many groups state that if such a letter were valid, it would have fallen short of its legitimacy as it comes 9 days earlier to the awaited Judgement of the colleagues in jail. It is interpreted by many as the highest state of treason, as the terms for dialogue based on the release of arrested, return of those on the run, re connection of the internet, demilitarization of the regions and possible promise of no further arrests have not been fulfilled and respected. What about invitation of the third party to the dialogue?

To have taken such a drastic turn of events based on the press release from the Minister of Justice is seen as the Minister’s  ploy to play the similar game by the Secondary Education minister who went around convincing various trade unions to sign press releases calling off strikes that never was called off. Is Jackson Kamga therefore the right person to call off the strike? And why from Douala? This would have been a big victory to the Government and the National TV would have stopped any other program to broadcast and celebrate such victory. Why have they not? Propaganda?

On the 27th of April, the fate of 28 Anglophones shall be decided by the Military court. Shall this decision hasten their release or shall the case again be adjourned to hold those calling off the strike responsible in case it does not effective halt. ? Why is the date of the return to Courts announced only after the 27th of April? Mere coincidence or based on “Good Faith” judgement? Remember the crimes they are allegedly accused of are  secession, vandalism, propagation of false information, terrorism among others will be held against the 28 persons.

What are the reasons of others on this controversial letter?

Jonathan Taphe, refused to succumb to such a letter and that the only letter that could be taken serious would be that from The president of the Common Law bar Bobga Harmony. This same Lawyer  is on exile in USA. Ngeh Samuel calls on Anglophone lawyers to confirm this as according to him common Law lawyers do not behave unprofessionally. Atali Dickson believes only Barrister Agbor Balla has the mandate to deliberate on this and that it is unacceptable. He goes further to refer to  it as “waste of time” and that this can not be accepted.

Ambo Ben, Gejung Mildred, Teneng Rogers and Sylvia Cavl, mock at the release, asking where the Bar president was when the leaders of the Consortium were jailed. They call this baseless as the venue of the release defeats the purpose.

It is all interpreted as the Regime’s ploy to see the reactions of the Anglophones as a measurement of calculating their next move. Could it be a way to state that all those arrested shall be set free on the 27th of April at last?

With the assertion that “impossible n’est pas Camerounais” your guess will be as right as mine.

SDF Chairman Finally confirms NEC warned and questioned Hon. Wirba

The saying “No smoke without fire” seems so true today in a statement made by the SDF chairman John Fru Ndi today at the NEC meeting in Yaounde, where he confirmed that the NEC did warned Hon. Wirba Joseph on his declarations as “As a descendant Warrior from Nso and that no one draws a line on Nso warriors… ” This statement must have angered the NEC members who felt that Hon. Wirba through his courage must have “Stolen the Show”.

Fru Ndi SDF chairman

In the Mid January this year, some Print media like The Guardian and some online media like the Cameroon Journal precisely on Jan. 19th had a breaking News The lifting of Hon, Wirba’s immunity and that some SDF MPs were to help the parliament revoke this because Hon. Wirba Called the shots.

Wirba was being accused of preaching rebellion and separation. which were gainst the SDF constitution as well.When this rumor circulated like wild fire, and when the SDF NEC found out that the public understood reason for the an emergency meeting convened some weeks back.

“A top SDF official who hinted The Cameroon Journal on the development yesterday said the expulsion of Hon. Wirba using the party’s unpopular article 8.2 will be top on the agenda when the NEC converge on Bamenda.” The meeting that was convened by the newly-appointed Secretary General of the Party, Senator Jean Tsomelou, the stormy get-together, however, was chaired by Fru Ndi himself.

Today on CRTV 7.30 News, The SDF chairman, after stating that they appreciated Hon. Wirba’s boldness at the Nationa Assembly, did not only confirmed the allegations but contradicted himself by going further to question who gave him (Hon. Wirba Joseph) the power to speak the way he did, if he was speaking on behalf of the party or for himself when he called himself a warrior that no one draws a line across, and that they will resist the regime.

Fru Ndi SDF chairman SDF NEC Meeting

The chairman surely forgot that the MP was representing the people at the parliament, the same people that voted for him. To SDF, Wirba forceful speech about the marginalization of Anglophones in December 2016, contradicted the SDF stance of the party which has always been a two-state federation and not the restoration of the statehood of the former Southern Cameroons as Hon. Wirba  advocated. As such Article 8.2 of the SDF constitution expels ‘wayward’ militants from the party.

In another development, the NEC also discussed the heated debate of the VP Josuah Osih to contest against the party chairman for the up coming SDF elections next month. The chairman reacted to this by asking which was more important? Resolving the Anglophone crisis or organizing SDF elections, a statement many interpret as Fru Ndi not willing to quit the chairmanship yet or might be using the crisis to postpone the elections. Only Time will tell.

The SDG SG Jean Tsomelou on an interview said the meeting was also to seek ways on how to resolve the Anglophone crisis and to seeks ways of asking the government to engage in another dialogue that will call off the strike and get the school started. One begins to ask at what period of the year and time should the school year begin.
