No Chief/Fon should go to Yaounde

Washington, DC, 5 January 2017 – The desperate attempt by the colonial government of La Republique du Cameroun (LRC) to break the resolve of Southern Cameroonians to restore their independence is taking on one more twist.

LRC is now offering to fly into and out of the capital, Yaounde; it is offering to host Chiefs and Fons in lavish hotels; to wine and dine them at the expense of Emperor Biya; and to spoil all Chiefs and Fons with bribes under the pretext that the Chiefs and Fons are attending a National Conference of Cameroonian Chiefs.

The conference has been convened for 7 January 2017 at the Palais des Congres in Yaounde. The invitation to Chiefs and Fons bears the signature of the Lamido of Garoua, Alim Hayatou. The invitation identifies Alim Hayatou as president of the hitherto unknown, and certainly non-existent National Conference of Cameroon Chiefs.

The Movement for the Restoration of the Independence of Southern Cameroons (MoRISC) has learnt that the conference will, among others, adopt a “motion of unanimous support” for the colonial government.

MoRISC urges all Chiefs and Fons not to go to the said conference in Yaounde. MoRISC appeals to our Chiefs and Fons to refuse to be brainwashed, but instead – in the case of all Chiefs and Fons of Southern Cameroons – to stay committed to the cause of independence restoration come 1 October 2017.
