THE PROMISE OF SOUTHERN CAMEROONS – Some thoughts

 

People,

Congratulations people. The Southern Cameroonian people now have an interim president and government. We have now passed the point of no return. Thanks to the relentless struggle put on by the brave and courageous people of Southern Cameroons. Thanks to SCACUF, MoRisc and all,  for taking the lead and work tirelessly to bring this to bear.

Slowly but surely, we are putting together the pieces of the puzzle of the framework of a new and free nation called the “Republic of Southern Cameroons”.  Plenty of work has been done, but there is still much more to do.

 

 

The Interim President and Government have the full support of the people, and must now go to work to get this government recognized by the world body of nations.

It will take some time, there will be fits and starts, but slowly and surely, nations around the world will begin to come on board.

 

The first order of business will be to get this interim government a seat at the African Union and the United nations. And for that, we must rely on friendly countries like Nigeria and South Africa to put their full force and weight behind our cause.

To all of our people at home and abroad, this is the time to get to work to begin lobbying for this government. Talk about it, tweet about it, Facebook about it, sing about it and celebrate it. We have an interim governmental institution for the people of Southern Cameroons. This government will work tirelessly to build a consensus, bring all the parties fighting for the restoration of Southern Cameroons together under one plan of action and one voice. It is time to establish a high level of coordination and communication in our efforts to see this struggle through the finish line. We have gone too far to turn back now. We shall finish the job.

 

International recognition is all about the relationships, the friendships, and the  partnerships that we build with the people in power across the world; first in neighboring countries like Nigeria –or next door like Ghana--, countries inside the continental African like South Africa and Kenya, and distant countries around the world thereafter.

If you know the President or the vice President of Nigeria, if you know anyone close to power in Nigeria like Obassanjo or Asinbajo, if you know people in power or close to power in South Africa, Kenya, countries in Europe and the US, such as US Senators or Congressmen, this  the time to begin talking to them about the case and the cause of Southern Cameroon. If you were a classmate or a friend of anyone who is in power –or close to power--  around the world, this is the time to (re)activate these relationships on behalf of Southern Cameroon.

 

 

For those living in the United States, this is the time to get your US congressmen and Senators engaged in this struggle. Tell them about Southern Cameroons, tell them about the tortures, the maiming, the arbitrary arrests, the extra-judicial killings, the mass graves, the illegal searches and seizures, the illegal imprisonments without due process, the abuses of powers to which the people of Southern Cameroons are subjected to on a daily basis as we speak. Tell them about Paul Biya's concentration camps where the young people of Southern Cameroons are stuffed in less than inhumane conditions. Tell them about Paul Biya's holocaust, mass graves, genocides and ethnic cleansing in the Southern Cameroons.

 

Tell them about the flagrant violations of human rights and human dignity in Southern Cameroons. Tell them that the time has come for the civilized nations of this world to stand with the people of Southern Cameroons for their freedom from a ruthless "grand pap" octogenarian tyrant who has been in power for 35 years and now is killing the young people who are fighting for a better future and a better life in the land of their forefathers. Tell them. Tell the world.

 

It takes just one or two governments in Africa to recognize us, for a bunch of other governments to begin falling inline. And when that happens, the United Nations will have no choice but to grant a seat to the Southern Cameroons at the UN causing the tyrannical “House Negroes” of “La Republique” to begin licking their wounds of shame.

 

Cameroon will never be the same. But the fight is not won by any stretch of imagination. In fact, it is just beginning. With the interim Government now in place, our people back home now have an institution of the people, by the people and for the people to look up to for directions and instructions.

 

The Government of “La Republique” has no jurisdiction over the territory of Southern Cameroons and all of its illegitimate tribalistic CPDM colonial appointed leaders –Governors, DOs, SDOs-- are now declared persona non grata in the Southern Cameroons. Their authorities are null and void, even as we await to celebrate our independence in October.

 

The interim President and government must begin to put in place all the elements of a nation and these include:

1.     A Military to defend the territorial integrity of the country. This is the time to begin contacting retired colonels, Generals and all who may have competence in this field to begin working on establishing an armed force that will protect the territories of Southern Cameroons.

 

2.     A currency and a Central Bank. Every sovereign nation must have a currency and a sovereign Central Bank that issues its currency. Currency is the fundamental building block of every sovereign Nation. It is the bedrock of all economic development in a country. Simply put, currency is money. And money is a sovereign and fundamental right of a people to gain access resources. Without it, you simply cannot function in the modern world. 

Countries like “La Republique” are not real nations. They are slave plantations, ran by house Negroes who take their orders from France. That is why they will forever live and die in the bondage of perpetual exploitation and enslavement, generational poverty and indebtedness, and lost in the wilderness of the curse of the FCFA. 

The Southern Cameroon will be a modern Nation built on human dignity and freedom, with its own currency, its own economy, and in full control of its own destiny, like Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, etc…  A nation in which the role of government will be quintessentially defined as an institution which only existence is premised on service to the people of Southern Cameroon. -- not any one tyrant of a man, not any small group of people, but all of the people.—

 

3.     A modern constitution. The Southern Cameroon will be equipped with a modern constitution that puts great emphasis on human dignity and freedom. The foundation of the constitution will be to protect the freedom and the dignity of the people in relationship to their government. Basic principles of justice such as “Hebeas Corpus” will be reintroduced. Everyone has the right to remain silent and is innocent until proven guilty. A citizen cannot be detained without due process or reasonable suspicion of guilt. Everyone has the right to self-defense and equal protection under the law.

The government will have 3 co-equal branches: The legislative, the executive and an independent judiciary. There will be status of limitation on the powers of the executive branch of Government and extreme checks and balances built into the writ of constitution. There will be term limits on the executive branch, which only role shall be to execute the laws enacted by the legislative body. The legislative branch of government shall have the powers under the constitution to enact new statutes that must be compatible with the broad principles and guidelines of the constitution. An independent judiciary shall interpret the law --as it was meant to be understood-- and shall arbitrate disputes among the other two branches.
 

4.     A national anthem, a flag and a passport. We already know what the flag and the anthem are. A passport will be defined for the people of Southern Cameroons.

People,

Though we have great challenges before us, we are living in exiting times. We, the people of Southern Cameroon are given an opportunity to remake our world over. We are given a unique historical chance to right the wrongs of our forefathers and reshape the destiny of our people and our posterity. Think about the hopes of our people in a free nation in the heart of Sub-Saharan Africa. Think of how we can make a better life for our people with a great education, providing clean water, electricity, safer, larger and straight roads, affordable healthcare and modern hospitals, clean environment and much more to our people.

 

Think about having our own Central Bank and our own currency, our own sea ports with low custom duties, our own airports, our own Oil refineries with cheap gasoline at the pump, our own communication satellites that will drastically reduce the price telecommunication, our own manufacturing industries which will transform our produces locally –rubber, cocoa, woods etc..--, think of manufacturing products that we ship around world stamped with the inscription “Made in Southern Cameroon”, think about all these possibilities.

 

People,

freedom, –like slavery-- is a choice. We, the people of Southern Cameroon have made the sovereign choice to be free. And once a people have made that sovereign choice, the divine essence of God’s Universe bears witness and stands in agreement with the collective spirit of a people. “Yes, We can.”

The evil men who try to enslave you will use the threat of death to keep you from fighting for the freedom that is rightly yours. But once we rise up as one people, once we transcend our fears from within, and our doubts from without,  once we stand united behind a common cause, history teaches us that the just cause of the people always prevail over tyranny and fear. And no weapon ever devised by man can stop the sovereign God’s given rights of a people to march to freedom and self-determination.

 

There comes a time in God’s universe, when every people become awakened to their rights to the self-determination and to control of their own destiny.

 

“There comes a time when a people become conscious and aware of the basic fundamental truth that all men are created equal, and that they are endowed by their creator with the unalienable rights of life, freedom and the pursuit of happiness.”

–Paraphrase of the declaration of independence of the USA—

 

And for the people of Southern Cameroons, that time has come. The universal pendulum of justice and freedom has swung our way and there is no turning back. We have gone too far to turn back now. We have been to the mountain top and seen the promise land. And now we must proclaim the good news to the people in the land, and promise our children that there is a better future at hand and that we will take them there.

 

May God continue to bless the people of Southern Cameroons.

 

 

 

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  

--Excerpt of The declaration of Independence of the United States of America--

 

“Today we continue a never-ending journey to bridge the meaning of those words with the realities of our time.  For history tells us that while these truths may be self-evident, they’ve never been self-executing; that while freedom is a gift from God, it must be secured by His people here on Earth.” 

–Excerpt of Barack Obama’s inaugural second speech in January 2013--

 

”There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what is not true. The other is to refuse to accept what is true.”

 ---Soren Keirgegaard--- 

 

“A Government of the people, by the people and for the people must necessarily be at the proximity of the people, closer to the people and resemble the people that it seeks to govern.”
