The sun may set, the road so rocky, rivers dry, Southern Cameroonians day in and out treated as second class citizens. The government is untouchable, not shakeable and the same names shuffle in the top ranking positions in government. From generation to generation, the answers to our history questions are same if lucky perhaps just change in port folio as long as you are loyal to the ‘king’.Southern Cameroonians are not to have a say in nation building and if you dare oppose the government, your life is at risk if not death. So too is the Constitution, it is amended and adjusted to suit any situation when need be. Many of us were brutalized, raped and detained in deplorable conditions in jails for no reason. But one thing remains which will never die, the spirit to fight for our independence. Total restoration of our statehood is what we want and it will be soon. No compromise, we are in tears and agony today but joy will come tomorrow whether la Republic wants it or not. This is our birth rights to be reminded one more time that we are not giving up. The fight continues and no amount of intimidations, threats and brutality will stop us from fighting to the end. Our fallen heroes in the struggle our watching from above and we promise not to let you down. Mr. Biya all we want is the Total restoration of our statehood, set us free.
