WE WILL FOR EVER REMEMBER HIM ;
MOLA NJOH LITUMBE.
He came, he saw, he conquered and he gave his blood, tears and sweat for our homeland the Southern Cameroons.
For over the years our mentor, our hero, our inspiratlor, our father dedicated his entire life and fortune for the inevitable, irrevocable and irreversible restoration of the independence of our land of birth without fear or prejudice. This he did with pride and patriotism.
His eccentricity and tenacity in our God ordained struggle for such a very long time made him the Maradona or better still the Mandela of his generation.
As a baobab and an iroko tree, he was very didactic and a huge source of knowledge about our homeland, a macrocosm of a microcosm and a man par excellence when it came to the history of our homeland. This man was no other than his emeritus Mola Njoh Litumbe.
During his era, when he articulates the history of our country with such mastery and precision, you would always think this was a match made in Heaven.Indeed he was my people.
Pa Mola Njoh Litumbe you have fought a good fight and you have left an indelible mark on the consciences of most Southern Cameroonians that will never be erased from their inner minds for ever.
Our Malcolm X, our Dr Martin Luther king has paid the ultimate price like most of his peers have done for our freedom but sadly they have inevitably succumbed to the inevitable hour, the hour that no man on planet earth will ever overcome no matter your grandeur and prowess.
Fellow comrades, I remember very vividly and succinctly the last time I spoke with Pa. I told him that I pray that he will be part of history, that he will live to see his awesome dream come true by being part of the euphoric celebrations that will take place in Buea following the liberation and restoration of our independence. Pa was very ecstatic in affirmation.
But my people God had other ideas as our dream will never be fulfilled as death has taken the centre and focus of our being and aspirations as things have fallen apart.
So it is true that Mola Njoh is no more and this is the bitter reality we have to live with till we come to cross river Jordan.
In my mind’s eye and posthumously, our departed icon will be talked of with much enthusiasm and pride as the Sir Captain Thomas Moore of his generation.
Farewell to eternity our great one and as you meet our ancestors, tell them that our android generation has made a monumental decision to continue the fight from where you guys left.
That we will rise up as one people endowed by one destiny and fight with bravery and selfless sacrifice until Buea come calling.
That we have made a promise not to betray you people by pursuing the right to self determination for our people and country as enshrined in the Charter of the UN.
Papa Mola Njoh as you travel to the world beyond, when you arrive say hello to Dr Frederick Alobwede and co and tell them that the fight is on and Buea is just around the corner.
May your legacy live on ; till we come to meet again. Bye Bye great one.
On behalf of SCNC UK executive.
