Ambazonia: big disappointment, UN disavows secessionists

Kumba ClashThe Anglophone crisis lasts and continues to claim victims.

Cameroon daily journal news: According to the United Nations (UN), there is no “Anglophone genocide” in the northwestern and southwestern regions shaken since October 2016, by socio-political demands that have resulted in clashes between separatists and regular army.

Following the numerous exactions attributed to the army, the separatists accused the loyalist forces of “genocide” of the anglophones.

These accusations have just been denied by the UN Attaché based in Cameroon, who congratulated the Biya government this week for its humanitarian plan for the North West and South West populations, “this plan confirms the recognition the humanitarian situation by the government and its responsibility to ensure the well-being and protection of the affected populations, “said the UN diplomat. 

The war against armed separatists

The Cameroonian authorities have always claimed, “the army does not kill civilians. Security and security forces respond to attacks by armed secessionists who commit abuses against civilians. It has the obligation to preserve the integrity of the national territory, “Issa Tchiroma Bakary, the Minister of Communication and spokesman for the government, recently explained.

The position of the international community, which has decided not to side with the separatists that deprive students and school teachers, comes at a time when Cameroon is preparing the presidential election October 7, 2018.

So things are now clear, both to the United States as the UN, it is armed terrorists who face loyalist forces in the North-west and South-west and commit atrocities on civilians. 

The separatists have committed several errors first publication of pictures of soldiers killed and beheaded on the internet, the ransoming of the people, the burning of administrative buildings and the manhunt against students and teachers who defied their slogans.

Secondly, the separatist leaders or their supporters, including the writer and Cameroonian activist Nganang, have shown themselves to be spreading hatred on the internet and calling for the murder of soldiers of the Beti-Bulu ethnic group close to President Paul Biya.

These errors have obviously been fatal to them.
