We had a fair share of emails, calls and comments pertaining to our questions on the on going strike in the English-speaking regions of Cameroon. Two anonymous comments stood out and have created room for debate!
A whole lot of people are asking why the "francophones" are not supporting the movement. The answer is simple. The so called consortium is the problem. They labelled it as an "anglophone" problem which in itself is divisive. Do we have such a problem. YES. But is it the main problem? NO.
If the consortium called for leadership changes and labelled it as such, which is the main problem. There are regions like the north still grieved by the exile of the corpse of President Ahidjo who would support the movement.Comment two was a response to this comment:
In my humble opinion, the right war is being faught for the wrong reasons. A true leader seeks to unite and not divide.
Finally, the call for seccession is the most stupid of all. Either the the consortium is counting on the fact that the populus is misinformed/uninformed or the are themselves mis/uninformed. First, there is no precedence set for seccession in recent history. Sudan and south Sudan are perfect examples. Is south Sudan better off today? NO. In region plagued by the crisis of terrorism, the consortium as well as the government should know that hate speech and and anger are the perfect breathing ground for terrorist recruitment.
San Tzu once said "The opportunity of protecting ourselves from defeat lies in our own hands but the opportunity to defeat the enemy is provided by the enemy himself. A good leader knows when to retreat and when to attack. For it is better to retreat and stage a comeback than to let the taste of war lead one to a sour defeat"
I rest my case....
Comment: Is it this girl I heard accused Mark Bareta on a PUBLIC FACEBOOK post?!Response:
Well madam you don't necessarily need to expose your jealousy in the open like that...
Mark is fighting a noble cause that's why he got a number of followers you will never get in 10 years of your entire blogging career. You want more followers? Then fight too for a noble cause. Do like Mark Bareta.
Some of you are unworthy Cameroonians.You hypocrite and traitor.
Let me notice you speak Ill of West Cameroon again for whatever reason.
You strip naked for money but you will never strip naked to save people's lives. You neither have a child nor a sister so I understand your stupidity.Or maybe you are just the selfish breed.
Traitor. Is it now you want to start posting or reacting to the anglophone crisis?
We do not need you. I repeat that we do not need you.
You my friend are a disgrace to human values. Listen, Mark Bareta should not sit in the comfort of his house in America and promote bigotry.If you and him believe that asking woment to protest naked is the right thing to do, then please you and him should take your mothers, wives/girlfriends,daughters...etc and make them to start protesting naked. I promise you the others will join. If they dont then dont blame yourself.
If in all of this, we cant uphold the dignity of our mothers and younger sisters then what are we fighting for? By the time the movement is over, we will have the lost all our dignity. What is a nation without its pride?
Kiki never said she against the struggle but there are definitely many ways to fight a war. In case you are not aware, the art of war by san tzu will be a good piece to start reading.
Even in America n Europe where women marchs are going on against Trump, no one has asked them to walk naked.
So if u think that doing so is right, then you are the problem and proof why we are headed in the wrong direction with this struggle.
By the way, why don't you ask all men to go protest naked to? Aren't they part of the struggle?Kinnaka's blog hereby calls on everyone affected by this strike to emplore reason and not emotions! We can never effectively changed history with one narrative! Speak up! We are all in this together! #NoToMarginalisation
