Opinion - Ghost Town Realities - A Must Read

It is ghost town in the NW and SW regions of Cameroon. On this day, there seems to be no life – no lead and lots of lessons.

One can best describe the reaction of the protesting regions as children who bask themselves in dust in an attempt to seek their parents attention. As the parents ignore – they move on to bask in mud… And the parents ignore then they move on pour body lotion on them and all over… And then with more desperation, they are ready to heat oil and burn themselves with it. They continue to believe their neighbors will intervene yet the neighbor says, ‘that’s your father – we have little to do”. The father understands that with more desperation, the child will eventually get tired and possibly fall asleep or better still cry until a neighbor comes in takes them to their home until later.


This is exactly the situation in Cameroon. In the beginning, many believed that Biya was going to hear their loud cries and run to them as if he cared. And then they realized he doesn’t care much and so they begin to use desperate measures of which Biya saw them coming. With further desperation, they have taken to the streets, matching and calling on the international community - which has given a death ear. And now, they have come back and waiting to use their last resources – anger. In anger there is little they can do – for Biya has prepared the tuff to contain them all without a lose of heart. The irony is that most loud and protesting Cameroon confuse Biya for Obama not knowing he is just a quiet form of Donald Trump.

Meanwhile, abroad, many fans have realized that their moments matching through the cold have yielded little or no results but have more or less shown the world their dirty linens. Maybe, as Cameroonians, we should learn to clean our dirty linens indoors. Everyone has become an instruction fanatic – sending orders for the release of those arrested as if Biya reads any of those letters. Biya, has merely created a stage for Cameroonians to dwell on. He sits from his palace and has his team playing the populace like a chess game.

Some say it has been a success – but the realists say we have just found out the loops holes and will be better prepared to re-launch when the time is right. And so, they have left the loud minority to keep fanning the flames in desperation and attention seeking while the silent majority is putting in place surprises for Biya in 2018.

At the end of the day -

And so, I am poised to question the realities of certain events that unfolded in the wake of the recent crisis:

How could perpetuators of the ghost town shut down hospitals and refused medical practitioners from exercising their civic duties? A friend of mine lost his brother simply because they could not find a medical staff at the hospital.

How could perpetuators of the ghost town barricade the transit route for journalists whose jobs were to report on the happenings? As such, the mass of false information that filtered through came from the keyboard journalists whose imaginations played scenes – making them believe that they were free and winning.

It puzzles me that a people will decide to shut down their activities for 4 days out 7 days simply because they want to pass a message – a message they are sending to someone who has been deaf for over 30 years - yet, they say, they believe in miracles. If they had a message to say – they could better plan a march to the Unity palace and stage a camping there where Biya will be reminded of them daily. For now, they are simply alienating themselves from the rest of the population who continue to find reason to maintain the nation’s pride and integrity – the Lions showed that yesterday in the achievement of the Nations Cup. I see members in the diaspora – especially those in the US – holding meetings to foster the agenda – but they forget that Cameroon is not in the US – Cameroon is in Cameroon.

And while some have been arrested – some have fled – realizing their original plans for seeking asylum. And then you will hear them compare them with Mandela…. Ask them if Mandela ever left his country amidst the chaos. These are many more reasons why Biya continuous to give them the silent treatment so as to let them know that this is a battle of generations and not days. And you don’t send little boys amped with heightened testosterone to fight an old man’s battle whose hormones have been replaced by greed, cognac and the contaminated communion drinks from the various churches and sects they have lived through their ages.

It is my hope that through these happenings, we have learned and will learn the difference between a battle and a war. Let’s be keen of our end goals and avoid more casualties than have been caused already.

I stand to propose that we should recoil, refocus, replan and then re – engage. This generation has enough time to oust Biya – and only nature will make such a dictator lose sight of his end goals. Let’s play along with nature and nature will certainly favor Cameroon through its several wins. But winning is not about hurting yourself inorder to gain attention. Like an Ewondo woman – they prefer pleasure in pain – just incase they still don’t know what moves Biya.

Shalom...

  5. We are not fighting against Biya persay. Let no one confuse this. This is a battle to rid france or its cold clutches out of southern cameroon. This is deeper than the author is proclaiming

    1. Well spoken as an economist, I do know how France bleeds dry his colonies. You might see that Biya's resistance comes from orders he is issued from above. Thou I don't support his rule. Let's trash this issue from its roots and not go polishing flee infested wood.

  6. I read your blog and wish to provide a reaction. This is made in good faith. Take time to think and research what this conflict is all about. I lived and practiced law in South Africa. Mandela never left South Africa, but the operations and command of the ANC was in the diaspora. Get that fact straight. Its headquarters abroad in London was bombed. It is provocative to think people confuse Biya for Obama. You are not writing to a community of illiterates. You are writing to very sophisticated people some of who have served in the UN and foreign governments. The idea of marching to Etoudi is clear provocation. I am keenly aware that you may be trying to develop your writing skills and may be trying to help. I encourage you to take your writing seriously and put more effort into researching your themes.

  7. This is one of the worst articles I have read for a while , it is a disjointed piece of writing with void solutions . if the government is not concerned why then are they forcing people to send their kids to school ? Why did they even tried to bribe the leaders and after not succeeding they turn around to band the consortium and arrest the leaders. From ur write up you sound like someone who has either been paid to do this write up or you bribed ur way through school because it actually sound foolish . It is people like u that are actually killing the country . #people with no brains # .

  13. The write did not take her journalism lessons serious hence such uncoordinated phrases. I wonder if a class 6 leaver can go home with a line to two as a lesson learnt. Not every dick and dora should blog. If it's not for you read from others and be educated. I think the writer isn't washing dirty linen only, the wash up here is more than dirty linen.

  14. As a writer on such a platform, You let the people conclude and not impose your thinking on them.everyone has a freedom of opinion but don't superimpose yours on others. Learn about writing articles, this is not a secondary school platform

  22. I have earlier indicated, this blog is useless, guys, we should stop reading from her. This blog is working with the occupier regime. Can you imagine the rubbish write up. I have just vomited out. Kinnaka you have nothing to write about than gossip and prostitution infact that's what you are. Your write up on Southern Cameroons / Ambazonia matter is a big discourage statement. Do you mean we are wasting our time? We have told the government school will not start, we don't longer take order from Yaounde,we have control over our state. If you dare write rubbish like this again i will shutdown this your blog. did you not see the graffiti of an X of this blog? Take your time

  35. And from the reactions to this article one can easily identify what these extremist are out for. In a fight like this you can not hold back your temper. Go to any village now in the NW or SW regions and you will be surprise the way the youths are responding to their teachers, parents and neighbors. Alcohol, drugs gambling, prostitution, disorders, loading and the rest are the order of the day because they want to make away with the old dirty country. My pity to those who are supporting and advocating for this in Cameroon. Well we are waiting for NOAH to come are rescue the righteous ones and let this bad generation pass away as they are preparing themselves to be carried away by the storms. It will not be the first, it happened with the Jews, Iraq, Iran, Libya, CAR, Rwanda and list can be long. If we believe in change through giving lives then we continue with the ghost town forever until all the youths are public outcasts

  40. I am surprise the writer signs as Anonymous. What is the objective of the writer? It seems to me that this writter is really bitter about life. The bitterness and toxicity from her write is so much that i could not read pass the first third of the article. I pray God to help me never to read such toxic and poisonous stuff. I pray God should help her realised that you cannot share negative stuff without poisoning your self with the poison.

  41. It agree with the writer with certain situations points.we can't insult her but the idea of shutting down hospitals is lame and stupid in out part.Secondly we can't keep making empty verbal threats and folks and people on Cameroon without a plan in action. We also have to understand that every day the is strick people of South Cameroon loose money.if we don't some out with a plan or a way forward it will become boring and monotonous.and trust me it's fast becoming that way.People in the diaspora run their mouths and give instructions to those in Cameroon about the struggles of which they make their paycheck bi weekly and loose nothing.Biya is a wicked and black hearted wizard one can ever think off.In southern part of Cameroon now you can't seat in a bar and talk without the fear of getting arrested and you ending in yde.people in the diaspora stop this Bulshit of tell us what to do and come fight idiots.make I hear some my brother call me talk strike from bush for tell me how we get for strike I go slap e through phone.whonna feel say whonna Facebook strike di work for hear idiot them.my name na Atem John
