SCBC, after having followed the dynamics that led to the uncivilized killings of some prominent Ambazonian freedom fighters and innocent souls in Guzang in the Southern Cameroons, vehemently condemns the act as a heinous crime against humanity and as one that has attempted to delegitimize our God-ordained struggle for liberation from French Cameroun, after almost 60 years of annexation, militarization and political subjugation of the autonomous State of Ambazonia with its clear-cut territorial demarcations as recognized by International Law.

SCBC, faithful to its mission as the “Voice of Ambazonia”, to cover the state of the struggle for the benefit of giving impartial information both to the Ambazonian people and the international community, decries and denounces the selfcentered narcissistic propensities of some Ambazonian resistance movements and their leadership, to undermine the collective efforts of the majority of Ambazonians only for self-gain and personal aggrandizement, to the point of sacrificing the lives of the very people they are purporting to liberate from the tentacles of French Cameroun.

Ambazonians of many facets and ramifications have fought so hard to avoid any in-fighting in this revolution by organizing themselves to finding common grounds, but some rogues have slipped in, with very personal agendas attempting to destroy an edification sealed with the blood of innocent civilians, seeing they have lost any force of argument and popularity, have resorted to gangsterism and creating terror in the counties and Local Government Areas in the land of Ambazonia.

We believe in the locution of Vox popoli Vox Dei, and therefore, demand that the perpetrators of the Guzang massacre, who according to the Ambazonian Interim Government and many activists and investigators have the name and title of AGC and ADF to surrender all their activities to the Ambazonian people and hand themselves over to justice. They should seize all defense activities, dissolve their operations and place themselves under the recognized command of true Ambazonian self-defense forces.  Every resistance must be guided by the rule of law, including the respect and allegiance to the people’s will. We must recall that the Ambazonian people, though forced into self-defense by the President of French Cameroun, are generally a critical but peaceful people who respect the right to life and the right to defending themselves honorably complying with the convention of Geneva.

Following these sad and undesirable developments and events, we need to take certain steps to preempt them and prevent them from ever happening in the future. Time has come for all stakeholders in the struggle to gather for an indepth assessment of how far we have gone, to evaluate the state of the union and see where we have gone right or wrong in order to remodel and consolidate our structures while sharing a strong commitment to meeting specific goals and milestones. We definitely need a renewed spirit to help us stay true to our original principles for which we think it is imperative and maybe overdue to call for a General Ambazonia Conference that will help in conflict mitigation, indicate the way forward for the Self-declared state of Ambazonia and prepare the scenery for imminent negotiations with French Cameroun under the mediation of the international community.

SCBC seeks to play a key-role in the definition, organization and coverage of such a conference to give all Ambazonian and Southern Cameroonian representatives the opportunity to exchange ideas, determine a better vision for the struggle and affirm an undisputed common leadership framework to bring the hopes of our people into fruition without unnecessary and further shedding of innocent blood.

While the year 2018 was a transitional year for some countries, which changed their leaders through the ballot box, some other countries like Cameroon and Mali decided to renew their allegiance to their presidents.

The third part of the 2018 elections review gives a brief insight on how election was carried out in Cameroon and Mali.

Biya secures 7th term after 36 years in power

The 2018 presidential elections in Cameroon witnessed some happenings which completely changed the traditional system; election-proclamation of result, to feature a heated court exchange between the state and the opposition.

A lot of people wished this election could be the end of the 36 years rule of President Biya who took over from Ahidjo in 1982, but all hopes were dashed when he announced his intention to run.

The elections took place in a tensed atmosphere with security threats in the North West and South West regions which has plagued the country for over two years.

Barely two days to the polls, two opposition candidates, Akere Muna and Maurice Kamto formed a coalition after several failed attempts by all opposition leaders to come together to unseat Biya, marking the very first time the country has witnessed a coalition.

Amidst growing tension, the election was conducted hitch free but massively boycotted in the restive Anglophone regions due to security threats.

Twenty-four hours after the polls, Maurice Kamto declared himself winner during a press conference in Yaounde stating that figures he received indicated that he had majority of the votes. Such claims were watered down by the government stating that only the constitutional council had the right to proclaim results.

18 petitions were filed before the constitutional council by individuals and parties including Maurice Kamto and Joshua Osih seeking partial or total cancellation of the process. These petitions were termed unfounded and dismissed by the constitutional council.

The Constitutional Council later declared Paul Biya winner with 71% of votes,and he was sworn in for another 7 years term on Tuesday, November

*Ibrahim Boubacar Keita garners 67% votes in election run off

Unable to secure an all out victory in the first round, Ibrahim Boubacar was declared victorious in the presidential race, after amassing 67% of the votes in a run off with main oppostion leader Soumaila Cisse.

The constitutional court in the country gave a green light for a run off to take place on August 12 after results of the first round indicated that no candidate was able to reach the 50% threshold to be declared winner.

Meanwhile several opposition candidate rejected result tallies and called for recounts of some ballots, but the president of the court declared such petitions “inadmissible”.

Despite the fraud allegations filed by Soumaila Cisse, Keita’s major challenger in the elections , Ibrahim Boubacar was declared winner of the elections by the apex court and was sworn in on September 4,2018.

However, Mali’s vote was marred by insecurity which caused many of the voters to boycott the run-off presidential election.

The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), has placed the Republic of Cameroon as the second worst prosecutor of journalists in the world.

The Central African country comes only behind Eritrea, ranked first.

According to CPJ, Cameroon detained as many as seven journalists in 2018. Most of the journalists are facing charges linked to false news, fake news, to news that endanger the state security.

Reporting the various crises in Cameroon has become a hideous task in French Cameroun.

A senior Cameroon military officer has revealed that the Ambazonian Restoration Forces are not losing in the Southern Cameroons war and that the Unity Palace needs a new occupant to bring peace to the divided nation. Speaking on Monday to our undercover reporter in Yaoundé, the military baron who hails from the Far North region and whose name we are withholding noted that relatively speaking nothing changed ever since troops were deployed to crush the Anglophone uprising.

Citing former French President Jacques Chirac, the top military officer said “No one ever wins a war and I can sincerely tell you that there is no military solution to the crisis in Anglophone Cameroon.”

The Head of State should engage the leadership of the Anglophones in the Diaspora and convince them that it was time to come to the negotiation table,” he added. Without going into some military details, the French Cameroun soldier further pointed out that Biya is currently making the path to reconcile the nation rockier. “I believe and fervently too that the key to solving the crisis in Anglophone Cameroon is to bring in the United States government to incentivize the Ambazonian Interim government to negotiate.” He said.

The Francophone army commander said the Abuja action against the Anglophone leadership was a costly mistake and a diplomatic blunder that has made reconciliation between Francophones and Anglophones too far-fetched. He claimed that a majority of Francophone political elites sees no military solution to the Anglophone crisis.

Cameroon Intelligence Report gathered that Defense Minister Joseph Beti Assomo has placed a ban on media houses shedding fresh light on Cameroon military’s failure to contain the Ambazonian Liberation Forces and stabilize the territory. There are fears that with presidential elections just three months away in the Federal Republic of Nigeria, separatist fighters may gain strength as the Biya regime   in Yaounde struggles to monitor not only Southern Cameroonians but also the Bamilekes who are reportedly behind Prof Maurice Kamto.

We understand that the Southern Cameroons Interim Government decreed a county-by-county policing of the Ambazonian territory and this has cemented the position of fighters under the Ambazonia Security Council (ASC) who are now taking control over larger chunks of the rural areas while the Biya government had seen its control shrink. The Rapid Intervention Battalion (BIR) has failed to secure Southern Cameroons and have also suffered a high number of casualties in their battle against the Ambazonia Restoration Forces.

Heavy fightings continue for a second consecutive day in Bambili, Tubah Sub division, North West region of Cameroon between French Cameroun security forces and Ambazonia fighters, sources have confirmed.

A source in Bambili said suspected armed Ambazonia fighters attacked the Bambili gendarmerie brigade on Tuesday morning prompting a heavy gun battle.

The fighting has forced many residents to remain indoors while some businesses have shut down as residents flee for their safety.

Tuesday’s clashes followed on from Monday where the Ambazonia fighters engaged Cameroun security forces around the Fon’s palace as well as towards the ENS street as residents were all indoors observing the traditional “ghost town” Mondays.

It is still difficult to identify casualties but Bambili has been under tension since the end of last week after a lecturer of the University of Bamenda Paul Mbufong was brutally killed in neighboring Bambui.
