The recent Bamenda join meeting between NOWEFU and a two man Delegation of a professed London-based CAMOCORE necessitates a prompt SCNC reaction, and here comes it. we are not the least worried by the occurrence, nor should any Southern Cameroonian Citizen be bothered.
The meaning of the meeting
Their meeting has instead occasioned a tremendous advantage for SCNC, all along, we have been at great pains to convince our curious grassroots, especially the advocates of an armed struggle, of the huge progress at high speed, which we are making on our pacific motto of the “force of argument and not the argument of force”.
The rare meeting has revealed the fear and panic, and greatly weakened the international position of the Yaounde Regime. or else, why did the Yaounde Government not stage such a meeting before now and why on Southern Cameroon’s soil, if not the last kick of a dieing horse.
The Regime’s best opportunities to have, off course, only delayed us was to have responded to the repeated request of messes J.N Foncha, and ST Muna prior to AACI, which would have prevented the two statesmen from resigning and its consequence to the Regime.
They also bluffed off the post –AACI request to engage urgent measures to address the Southern Cameroon question, preferring intimidation, torture, maiming, life sentencing and extra-judicial killings to silence us.
The main achievement is to reveal the strength of our struggle, for us to hold our ground while, on the other hand, displaying the Fracophone government as a sinking man grabbing around for whatever string of CAMOCORE and NOWEFU to hold onto for survival.
The insignificance of CAMOCORE and NOWEFU
The North West Fons Union and by extension, their South West Counterparts have no political relevance whatsoever to the SCNC struggle. Fooled by the empty title of auxiliary to the Administration and the self defeating power of exploiting and brutalizing their own subjects, they sold themselves out to the regime 51 years ago for a livelihood of crumbs off the table of immense resources from their own very territory.
The CAMOCORE from London is a recent creation by the Yaounde Government. It shows their continuing effort to retain the Southern Cameroon in perpetual annexation. It is one of the many initiatives of the regime to use us to defeat ourselves. Some of the earlier experiment in the Diaspora included, paying off members to resign and become wayward to the struggle, to the ironic extend of some, who held positions in the transitional government, returning to contest Presidential elections in the Republic of Cameroon.
At the home front, the drive to corrupt some officials of the struggle was also carried out.
We have heard of leaders who advocated either a referendum, negotiations or dialogue, as well as adopting a fallback position, all of which are euphemisms for the truncated federalism the Biya regime now seeks, since more than a decade ago. It is absolutely impossible for a republic to organize any of these options in another Republic on the mere basis of de-facto occupation.
The portraying of the CAMOCORE delegation as UK-based is no big deal, so long as its executive leader was never known in our nationalist ranks, he commands no followings even in his very London base, and much less at our domestic front. His anyi-nationalist role smacks of the similar creation of a government SCNC under Chief Oben and Theodore Leke, to undermine the SCAPO case at Banjul.
What is this exaltation of one of the members of the delegation as a researcher at the British House of commons, where CAMOCORE was supposedly also given birth. The regime has yet to understand that, unlike a Francophone, who capitulates to the intimidation of authority as being divine, the Southern Cameroon, by his Anglo-saxon intellectual culture, only yield to no reason. We have come of age and are knowledgeable enough that the Prestigious House of Commons can not allow itself to be linked to a demeaning organization.
