The cultural heritage of the people of British Southern Cameroons must be protected, we will resist.
Our leaders such as Frederick Alobwede Ebong, Andrew Azong,Charls Mbide and Henry Fossung and many more before us never gave up the fight for our freedom, which is why our (SCNC)National Chairman Nfor Ngala Nfor is presently detained by Biya and his government, not leaving out Sisiku Ayuk Tabe and other Abazonian leaders who were arrested in Nigeria and extradited to Cameroon in January 2018.
We the people of British Southern Cameroon are tired of being annexed by the French Cameroon,We want our independence and total freedom, it is for this reason that the octogenarian regime of the 87years old poul Biya are out to destroy southern Cameroonians completely and weaken us in such a way that we will take more than three decades to stabilise and rebuild our village’s, Towns and cities and as well assimilate our plans.
Proof of it:why is the military targeting and burning place?- to destroy the base and roots of who we are as a people and our culture! That is what keeps us strong and bonded. We see the military burning down villages and homes of innocent southern Cameroonian civilians even when they are aware no one possesses threat to them in those houses. It’s all to disperse our people and render us wanderers so that our unity will be destroy, families are separated, many are now in the bushes or refugees in Nigeria and other countries. It is clear that more than 3000 southern Cameroonian civilians have been killed by Cameroon Soldiers, 530000 internally displaced and more than 40000 southern Cameroonian civilians are refugees in Nigeria as of July 2019. When you separate families you destroy society.
The French government and it’s military also take our innocent southern Cameroonian men, women and children from their home’s and shoot them at close range, just to instill fear and terror in us all as a people of British Southern Cameroon so that we can abandon our call for independence. Look at what the military did in Bali on the 18th of January 2020, they burnt down home’s in the heart of the Town with cars of innocent southern Cameroonian civilians. All what the French government and it’s military are doing is part of their plan to destroy southern Cameroonians completely.
It is for this reasons that, the SCNC is using this platform and many more to call on the world and common wealth Nations to see the genocide going on in our mother land southern Cameroon and to help us preserve our heritage, values and culture as a people as it is being destroy by the military. A place where we call home, the land of our birth! That place where even when our time on earth is over, we return to for our soul to rest In peace-, is that place the military is burning down each day. Our people are running day and night for fear of been killed by French Cameroon Soldiers.
The SCNC and the people of British Southern Cameroon ask, for how long will the world watch and stay quite while our people are suffering. One thing is certain victory is our’s, it may take long but our independence and total freedom is on it’s way. The is light at the end of the tunnel.
