Cameroon is in dire need of political change but foreigners should stay out of choosing a leader for Cameroon. It is wrong for any America ambassador to Cameroon to say that Marafa Hamidou Yaya is in good terms with Western embassies in Yaounde and therefore seen as a front-runner to replace Biya as president one day. Recolonization in disguise. Can Cameroon ambassador to the US; Bienvienue Foe Atangana have a say as to who Obama's possible successor will be? Again I see Western intervention in Africa as Neocolonialism and destabilization of African countries for selfish gains.

23 MaySouthern Cameroon National Council.SCNCCOLD CASE, THE REVALATION OF THE BREAKING NEWSIt's easy to make a man confess the lies he tells to himself; it's far harder to make him confess the truth. Our fellow Southern Cameroons politicians can tell those lies with so much ease, but, it is like carrying Mt. Fako to Yaoundé to let Ngolle et al face the truth. When our fellow compatriots in high offices are lying In their beds, they know that all is not well and soon and very soon, all hell will break loose! Let us begin by committing ourselves to the truth—to see it as it is, and tell it like it is—to find the truth, to speak the truth, and to live the truth.

No one wants the truth if it is inconvenient. It is inconvenient to those who like darkness, and now that light is coming, darkness must disappear. Of course, we know that nobody speaks the truth when there's something they must have. Nothing is great that is not true.

Open-mindedness should not be fostered because, as Scripture teaches, Truth is great and will prevail, nor because, as Milton suggests, Truth will always win in a free and open encounter. Why is La Republique afraid of dialogue? The reason is simple: fear that the truth ill win in any pen encounter. It is Benjamin Whichcote who said: “Right and truth are greater than any power, and all power is limited by right.”As soon as Southern Cameroons leaders start prioritizing the education of their people, the will know that they will assume their responsibilities rightly.

The first casualty when war comes is truth …and by extension, the first casualty when there is ignorance and confusion is the truth. There is confusion in Cameroon as well as ignorance, and so the truth is yet in trouble. The Southern Cameroons fight is not about the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog. The fact that Southern Cameroonians comprise barely a quarter of the entire population of the supposed “United Cameroon to be continued

16 JuneSouthern Cameroon National Council.SCNCA brief history of southern cameroonBefore I even give my rebuttal to Mr. Ngoh,s interview, I think it is essential to straighten some loose ends. The responses have been interesting and varied even from Ultracrepidate Redivivus who jumped into the "Debate" with the usual stale invectives of another era.. "To Find palaver". Let me remind all those shrill window dressers that I am more than ready for their inconsequential "Historical" galimatias. The main idea was not to engage in trading insults but engage the audience in trying to understand the mind frame of a so-called Historian. In any event, let them "Bring it on". Man No Run.

That said: Here is another perspective in a "Nutshell" of the REAL History of Southern Cameroons: Dr. Konde, you can interject at any misquote...as I am no Historian. I am simply quoting from other "More Learned" Gentlemen and Scholars than myself.

June 28 1919: League of Nations Mandate; French Mandate called Cameroon; British Mandate divided into Northern Cameroons and Southern Cameroons to be administered from the British territory of Nigeria by Indirect Rule

March 27 1940: E M L Endeley creates CYL (Cameroon Youth League) to oppose UK exploitation of the indigents

June 12 1946: League of Nations ceases to exist; replaced by UN Trust Territory

1949: Southern Cameroons divided into two Provinces with Administrative H/Q in Bamenda and Buea. Sir Edward John Gibbons now carries Title of Commissioner.

1950: 13 Southern Cameroonians elected into the Eastern House of Assembly, Enugu, Nigeria

1953: Following an adopted Doctrine of "Benevolent Neutrality" a delegation of Southern Cameroonian representatives meeting in London, complained of the over-bearing posturing and Neglect in the Nigerian Legislature; requested from the United Kingdom; A Separate Region with Head quarters in Buea.

1954: First Elections in Southern Cameroons with EML Endeley emerging as the winner. Becomes the first Prime Minister.

1959: John Ngu Foncha defeats Endeley and becomes the 2nd Prime Minister of S/C

FEB 11 1961: Plebiscite with Two Alternatives proposed with a 3rd option (Outright Independence for S/C) that was opposed by the UK representative to the United Nations. 1st Alternative = Union with Nigeria (Defeated) 2nd Alternative = Union with Cameroon Republique (Won) Northern Cameroons voted for Union with Nigeria

April 21 1961: UN Resolutions 1514 and 1608 requiring the United Kingdom to engage in dialogue with Southern Cameroons, Cameroon Republique and Nigeria for smooth transitions or Independence preparations.


The above is well documented Historical data available to all and sundry. Revisionist Historians with macabre delusional agendas will not bamboozle us into accepting abracadabra imaginative amphigory in guise of Southern Cameroons History.

16 SeptemberSouthern Cameroon National Council.SCNCDear All,

I have two questions;

If POWER TO THE PEOPLE (Ni John Fru Ndi) is properly articulated, and the people decide that THE TIME IS NOW (Kah Walla), they will CHASE DOWN THE LION (Jean Jacques Ekindi) a then a BORN-AGAIN (AYAH PAUL) Cameroon will be a reality following the October 9, 2011 sham elections.

My questions;

1. Will you Ni John Fru Ndi, Kah Walla, Ayah Paul or Jean Jacques Ekindi throw your weight by October 8, behind any one amongst you who ran the most successful campaign and stands the better chance of having Cameroonians experience CHANGE?


2. Will bystanders like Dr. Chris Formunyoh (an apparent silent but powerful political voice) mobilize his ardent supporters to throw their weight behind any one candidate who by October 8, 2011 he deems has ran the best political campaign and stand a better chance of ushering CHANGE in Cameroon?

I sincerely believe that these 5 individuals are the midwives that can deliver a new Cameroon after all these years of painful labor pains. Such collaboration should be based on an all inclusive TRANSITIONAL government.


To him/her who much is given, much is also expected.

16 SeptemberSouthern Cameroon National Council.SCNCHOW FRANCE WILL INFLUENCE THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONSince France’s Charles De Gaulle created the now defunct Elf Aquitaine, fifty years ago, to maintain a steady supply of oil - his obsession since loosing control of Algerian oil after the Algerian war of independence, - kickbacks to oil-producing African dictators, have been tax deductible in France; a practice described by Loik Le Flock Prigeant, the last director of Elf before its liquidation, as “legal and republican”.
When Robert Bougi, Foccart’s assistant, and France’s liaison with African dictators, from Mobutu, Houphouet, Bongo, Sassou Nguesso to Gbagbo, revealed that he transported 20 million dollars in briefcases of cash to finance Chirac’s and de Villepin’s campaigns from the 1980 and 1990, it was understood as the continuation of the occult French policy instituted by De Gaulle at the eve of Africa’s empty independence.
Although he attempted to shield current French president Nicolas Sarkozy, from the culture of corruption, it is clear, in light of recent accusations from Saif al Islam Ghaddafi, that the corrupt practices that have undergirded the Francafrique relationship are alive and well. Bougi’s belated revelations, thought motivated by a desire to settle political scores and influence the forthcoming French presidential elections, lift a thin veil on the reason why corruption has persisted in French African countries, in spite of the general outcry about deteriorating standards of living and low life expectancy.
The French political system has been using its neo-colonial governments like a slush fund for funding exorbitant standards of living in France, while eviscerating the lives of Africans who have come to accept misery, hunger and unemployment , insecurity and malign neglect as a way of life, while their leaders vacation in the French Riviera.
So far, it is clear that corruption and dictatorship have thrived in Africa , because the West needs mafia-like secrecy jurisdictions to practice what Western tax payers will not tolerate. The West is like a married man who needs a brothel from time to time to satisfy his debauchery, while looking like a good husband to his wife. Pierre Pean has summarized the hypocrisy of the French, in his latest title: France-A Republic of (Cash) Briefcases. With more than twenty French African countries constrained by the Franc Zone accords to keep their currency reserves in the French treasury, the hoax of African independence is every day more evident. With the obsolescence of the African Union, only super –empowered African parliament with representation in the local government areas can create an African currency, the Afro- so that the collusion of the World Bank, the IMF and the banks of offshore secrecy jurisdictions will be exposed in their cupidity.

17 SeptemberSouthern Cameroon National Council.SCNCBREAKING NEWS what we can do"True peace is not merely the absence
of tension, it is the presence of Justice"
Martin Luther King
Any fraudulent election is more of the same injustice

and corruption, manipulation and suppression

not the change we need in Cameroon.
"...Paul Biya must go away from Cameroon presidency.

a Two-year Transitional Government will take over

and ensure the protection of Paul Biya to live honorably

in Cameroon if he becomes honestly supportive

towards this process for Cameroon evolution..."
We are efficiently planning and advocating for justice and for

a Two-year Transitional Government that can properly

set up a genuine Independent Electoral Commission

for free and fair elections in Cameroon.

If CPDM is not intending to rig elections, why are

they timid of a Two-year Transitional Government that

can set up a genuine Independent Electoral Commission
for free and fair Elections in Cameroon?

Cameroon needs commonsense efficiency

not commonsense deficiency.

The ultimate Two-year Transitional Government

will properly and effectively set up a trust-worthy

Independent Electoral Commission for

free and fair elections in Cameroon.
