AMBA: Why We Need FREEDOM from France & Franco-Cameroun
British Southern Cameroons aka AMBAZONIA citizens do NOT want any French etcs.
- Legally We are supposed to be INDEPENDENT
- We were NEVER COLONIZED by France, so the study/use of French is as optional as in any other English-speaking nation;
- A community that has no clue where money comes from and where it goes to is one that is lost in the desert of perpetual POVERTY - even if the community works hard and exports more than it imports, without an understanding of what is happening with National Income, everyone will still be POOR.
Since 1961, Franco-Cameroun has proven that France's hand in the national "wallet" is a requirement for Franco-Cameroun; but Ambazonians think different - We were NEVER COLONIZED BY FRANCE and should not have anything to do with France at this point. Even the French cannot convince anyone why they should be stirring the pot of African countries' monies. Maybe Franco-African citizens like it, love it and want it.
For citizens, never colonized by France, the desire by France to control our central banking is DOA (Dead on Arrival). Why would anyone want to control another person's household finances, except to gain/profit from the exercise? What if Africans don't want that? Will France quietly walk back into the shadows? Now ... that's a question.
A Legal State or Nation of Ambazonia will have the "independence" to decide and implement the best Monetary Policy that is acceptable by standard International Institutions. Having France control the Central Banking of an African Community of People might be poetry for some Africans, but this Ambazonian asserts that it is tantamount to broad daylight ARMED ROBBERY (75 years old).
The thing to remember is: FRANCE is NOT PRINTING MONEY FOR AFRICAN COUNTRIES because THEY LOVE AFRICAN PEOPLE. Seriously, that is not in the books, not in the mission/vision of the Bank of France, and certainly not voted for by the French citizens.
So anyone who still needs/or thinks Africans (Ambazonians) need a French Central Bank to oversee their Financial Institutions can move to France or to a French African space where the Game continues.
It is obvious that DECOUPLING Ambazonia from the cold/icy grip of French financial greed in Africa is the Trickiest stunt to accomplish in this 21st century. Why?
mmh! If you ask me, that question requires references to the Psycho-Sociology of French-Africans in 15 West/Central African countries to measure the effects/AfterFx of over 300 million African citizens being "colonized" by France for nearly a century ...
The result is that the culture (a sort of Pidgin-version of French Culture ... You need to live in France to understand/know what "pure" French Culture is ... then compare it to that of French-African countries) now occupies this space. A culture occupying a given space has influences - sometimes very significant - on the inhabitants of that space. Influences can affect the way People Walk, Talk, work etc.
Here is a phone call from an Ambazonian to a family member in Franco-Cameroun:
FRC: Allo! Allo!!
AMB: Hello! Can I ...
FRC: Allo! Allo!!
Because of living in a space that is occupied by a culture that is not a prescription for the healthy development of our communities, naturally Citizens perceptions/world views tend to morph into/adapt to the domineering culture - which in this instance (Ambazonia vs LRC) is bad medicine to all, but one that France + Franco-Cameroun deem essential to their short/long term goals of GREEDY DOMINATION of the AFRICAN COMMUNITY SPACE by FORCE (Use of Arms and Subterfuge - to hide the Evil they do from the rest of the World). That is sneaky and very "french".
AMBAZONIA MUST BE FREE from FRANCE first, then We can deal with Franco-Cameroun locally - as Africans. Take France out of the Ambazonia vs LRC equation, and the crisis begins to resolve itself. Yes, and you can take that to the French Central Bank too. Say it to them and hear what they say in reply.
ps: Our gripe is with French Policy since 1945. Individual French Citizens with no input/stake in these policies, Ambazonians should really have no case against them. Policies are "documented". So any Citizen can look them up, read about them, and if they understand what is going on, do something about rescinding on policies that are in this 21st century obnoxious to the targets of these French policies.
There is more ... errors/typos are mine.

To Be or Not To Be One Amba Love
By Ntumfoyn Boh Herbert (Yindo Toh)
Sept 1, 2020
Pro-One Kamerun federalists of all stripes and colors, especially those who, so far, have feigned “one Amba love” with true Ambazonians share a few things in common with the wildest of political animals.
For one, they all live on Earth II... in some alternate universe. They think citizens are fools and believe citizens can be fed all manner of stupidity, spoken boldly and unashamedly. They deny facts and reality even when they stare them in the face. They believe they can condemn political processes to death or raise non-existent ones to life.
I know it is painful for Ambazonians to read anything about my next character, but let’s discuss how this applies to a certain Paul Biya bi Mvondo of Colonial CameroUn.
You may recall, Biya has no problem owning up - in fact - confessing to the Sudanese billionaire, Mo Ibrahim, that his regime has tried, but has failed in its efforts to assimilate Southern Cameroonians into “frogs”. Yet, it is the same Biya who wants the world to know that very S-hole country (where assimilation has woefully failed) to be “one and indivisible”.
With Biya, there are always more examples to review.
Biya acknowledged the pain of many months of ghost towns in the 1990s, yet proclaimed that the heart of his S-hole CameroUn (Yaounde) breathes without the lungs and blood vessels “ghosted”, cutting off supply of much-needed energy from the provinces to the capital. So long as Yaounde breathes, Cameroun lives, he stated. He admitted that street protests in favor of a sovereign national conference deserved being addressed, but argued, in the same sentence, that such a request was “sans objet” -roughly translated as “without merit” or “not needed”.
Okay. Enough of Biya.
When tyrants and wannabe tyrants set standards like these in denialism, their lieutenants and apostles know what they are required to do to please their master: they line up and kiss up to the “big man’s” holy shit.
Pardon my French, but please stay with me, will you!
Enter Paul Atanga Nji.
Y’all remember? At an early stage in this “Never Again Generation’s” irreversible effort at restoring Ambazonia’s independence, Paul Atanga Nji relied on whatever half-education dropping out in Form Two confers, to declare that the Southern Cameroons Problem, misrepresented in his declaration as the Anglophone Problem, does not even exist.
Even Atanga Nji knows that politicians can cause living political things to die; and cause those that exist not to exist anymore. As in, for example, Atanga Nji Boys exist (in covert operations) but don’t exist (God forbid!) if you want La Republique to hold them accountable for the murder of Florence Ayafor, the Ngarbuh Massacre, the kidnapping of PSS Nkwen students, or the slitting of the throats of young girls in Muyuka and Bamenda. When it comes to disowning their own bad, Atanga Nji Boys are not dead. They never ever existed.
Politicians - even the dullest of them - know how to be or not to be. Unlike for Shakespeare’s Hamlet, it’s not even in question.
So, let’s fast forward to today... if it exists in the world of a certain Barrister Tumasang!
When last he was on ABC TV, Barrister Tumasang wanted every Ambazonian to know that Sisiku AyukTabe was his client. That particular TV appearance occurred in the few days immediately following the secret dialogue sessions between Ambazonian prisoners of war (led by Sisiku AyukTabe) and secret police officers of the La Republique.
Yes, I’m referencing those talks that held, if you still believe the declaration issued by Sisiku AyukTabe. And, yes, you guessed right. I’m referring to the same talks which never existed if you believe the counter declaration issued by La Republique once the talks were publicized in spicy, often embarrassing details by a missive from jail under the penmanship of a certain Deacon Tassang... if he exists.
From behind bars at the Kondengui Prison, Sisiku AyukTabe... if he really exists, has to have served notice to his lawyer, Tumasang, that the Swiss-led Process has to be “disappeared”. The Swiss-led Process is not dead. It never existed, we are now told to believe.
What could be so hard to erase reality from your skulls and begin on a clean new slate? After all, if the Swiss-led Process existed and/or is not dead, how would talks led from behind bars be justified?
You wanted to ask me why such instructions would be handed down to the learned lawyer? I’m glad you asked because conspiracy theories abound, right?
Not saying it happened... after all what exists is dead and what is dead exists.
More seriously, if you were the boss and for a while, the repeated appearances of Barrister Tumasang on ABC TV anchored by a certain Chris Anu, close collaborator of a certain Samuel Sako, left the impression that the man of law was more supportive of Dr. Sako than of you (his client) what would you do? I’m not suggesting that Barrister Tumasang has a gun to his head. If you doubt that a gun exists and has been used, ask a certain Barrister John Fru Nsoh how long you survive as attorney for the boss of you show support for the other.
Again, call this a conspiracy theory. The truth is that conspiracy theories are not dead. They exist. Unlike the Swiss-led Process.
Whatever confusion existed about where Barrister Tumasang stood between Sisiku AyukTabe and Dr. Sako has now been cleared. Barrister Tumasang’s write-up posted to social media platforms earlier today re-advertised his loyalty to his client, Sisiku AyukTabe. If you believe the lie at its core, the Swiss-led Process is not dead. It never ever existed. Which is why it was such a problem when it was still alive.
Are you confused?
Never mind! You are not alone. Barrister Tumasang is just as confused, but he has to say what it takes to remain the “big man’s” lawyer. Understood?
At the pace at which Barrister Tumasang renounces reality, I have to confess that I need to check if the Swiss themselves ever existed. Who knows what ghosts would not do to live rent-free in Tumasang’s head? I can now understand why every time we went to Switzerland, I had the feeling that everyone I met was a ghost. We should have taken Barrister Tumasang with us abd, along with him, that traditional healer of insanity he described on ABC TV as resident in Bafut.
Think of it. Someone needs to get to an asylum. Ask yourself why people like Tumasang and Co. Infatuate about the non-existent Swiss. Why would they be so anxious to dig a grave for a process that never ever existed? What else that never existed as well might they be just as infatuated about committing to the termites and worms of the earth? Might these pro-One Kamerun federalists and supporters of talks from jail with federalism as an option want Ambazonia to be declarexnot dead but simply as never ever existed?
Do you get my drift?
It’s simple. Too many desperate for relevance in this restoration quest, do not mind cutting off their nose in order to spite their own face. What good could the Swiss-led Process be to Ambazonia when having no process at all is so much better than to have such an internationally-supported process? Talking of supporters, how can we be sure that the USA, the UK, the EU, the AU, the UN, the Canadians and others who support the Swiss-led Process ever existed when the process itself is not dead, but never ever existed?
Every Ambazonian with eyes to see and ears to hear would have seen this comic strip being written a few weeks ago. During his last appearance on ABC TV, Barrister Tumasang shared the set with me. To the astonishment of the anchor, Chris Anu, other guests and viewers, Barrister Tumasang spent a considerable chunk of his time on camera sharing details with the public of what should be confidential discussions between a lawyer (Tumasang) and his client (Sisiku AyukTabe).
Several times during that show, the learned barrister insisted that one of the options Ambazonia must be open to embrace is a return to the federalism that existed between 1961 and 1972.
In all honesty, you cannot be for a return to federalism and, at the same time, be for the Swiss-led Process, set up for negotiations about separation. How can the negotiations you don’t want really exist? Even Atanga Nji knows not to say the problem does not exist and then argue that it is dead. As all can see, Barrister Tumasang is not doing badly. As a matter of fact, he has just proven to be “the best pupil of Atanga Nji Paul”.
Unlike many in this liberation struggle who don’t know what is good for them, Barrister Tumasang - as the lawyer in favor of the federalism option - knows just how much damage the existence of the Swiss-led Process does to his preferred option. What Barrister Tumasang wants Ambazonians to recognize as existing are the secret talks held in the premises of the Catholic Archbishop of Yaounde; not the Swiss-led Process. This is Barrister Tumasang’s lawyerly way of letting Southern Cameroonians know that Ambazonia is not dead. It has never ever existed... so, please settle for the federalism option I’m promoting.
Which is precisely why those of us committed to the Swiss-led Process are so determined to make sure that it exists. Barrister Tumasang does not need to worry. We won’t need his help. For those of us, committed to the Swiss-led Process - dead or non-existent - Barrister Tumasang is like Atanga Nji: they are both not dead. They have never ever existed.
