Southern Cameroonian writes open letter to Tapang Ivo following his call for violence

MY SOLEMN ADVICE TO TAPANG: MIND YOUR GLASS HOUSE AS YOU PLAY WITH STONES

Dear Tapang Ivo Tanku,

Listen to me carefully and read over this many times:

1.) Your frequent calls for violence on the families of free citizens whose stance on issues is different than yours may expose your innocent family in Cameroon to retaliation. I'm thinking of your beautiful sisters and your mother. You have just placed fresh calls this morning for the homes of people who hold views contrary to yours to be located. You want their wives and children to be targetted. That's simply outrageous! That's a call for extra-judicial mob justice.


2.) It would be a crime against humanity for any institution (especially the government) or groups of individuals to victimize your family because of your political views. But, equally:
a.) It would be a common law crime for anyone or group of individuals obeying your HIGH COMMAND ORDERS to target any family because of the democratic choice of their parent or sibling.
b.) If anyone is arrested or killed while executing the HIGH COMMAND ORDERS for violence you are sending out daily with a relish, they are common law criminals, not political victims.

3.) If for nothing else, listen to me for old times' sake. Listen to the one colleague who always stands by you when others have gotten pissed off. Listen to the one who gets scorned by other colleagues because I stick my neck for you, glorifying your salutory professional and academic exploits as if I don't have mine nor can pursue more (yes many said so when I reported your departure for the fulbright fellowship on our journalism forum and others said so to me when I recently profiled you and Mark Bareta). You have also stood by me in my hours of distress. So, we have watched each other's backs as comrades, beyond just colleagues.

4.) Take note, I am not by this urging you to drop your guard in the line you've chosen to follow in our noble struggle to redeem our people. We are in the same struggle but are at variance over strategy. Fight on for our people. I am fighting on. I won't give up, whatever the attacks I face from standers-by clapping for dance styles in a time of war.

5.) It is your democratic right as it is mine to dig our heels in the sand in our different positions. I won't infringe on yours, but if you believe I ever cared one bit, please hid my call: do not endanger your family by endangering other people's families.

6.) Those families also have families and loved ones who can retaliate and plunge you and yours into a cycle of violence. I'm not sure you dream for an ambazonia of death squads; (calls for the blood of "traitors of the divine cause" which muslims call "Fatwa", may be easily pronounced but can never be completely withdrawn. The Fatwa called on British Indian author of "satanic verses" Salmond Rushdi in the 1980s by Ayatolla Komeni, still stands and any muslim who finds him even today (30 years on) may kill him in the name of Allah though the Ayatolla is long dead).

7.) I also remind you that Agbor Balla and Neba Fontem who signed to authorize you to speak on their behalf are probably under legal liability for your blood utterances. their families are also watching.

8.) Brave men like you and I defeat fear of repercussions including death when we engage in battles like this for our people, yet we have no right to expose others -- be they our own families or rather, especially our own families -- to danger.

9.) Let's carry our ant-infested faggots on our heads but let's not carry them home for our families to suffer ant bites they did not invite.

10.) I hereby call on comrades of our struggle to bear witness and to share responsibility for their complacency and for encouraging my younger friend and colleague down a suicidal road, exposing his family to danger.

11.) I also call our journalism colleagues to witness.

12.) I make this call for no other reason than my outrage at the increasing dangerous rhetoric in Tapang's utterances against others because their actions on the ground threaten his wishful stimulus-response outcome.

13.) I make this call out of concern for a younger friend, colleague and comrade at other fronts.

14.) Now, over to you, Facebook LOVERS of Tapang. Show him some LOVE! Both support him here and provide protection for his family in Cameroon.

MAY GOD PROTECT US

Son of Bayen

NB: To those who think I ought to have buried this inbox with Tapang alone, you haven't forgotten so soon (have you?) how my last inbox with him and Bareta ended: A loud-mouthed notice-seeker said I'd CORNERED them to corrupt them. I'll be open so we all are witnesses. See how many times I used the word "witness"? I choose my words. BY THE WAY, try going inbox with them, if not with praise (just to compare notes or make proposals) and be honest to come and share your experiences with the rest of us.

    2. Please lets be patient at times to read things that matter to us, and avoid complaining about the length of what they appear to be.
      Thanks a lot Mr. Sone Bayen. Violence is NOT at all an option; not for any of those who dream of a solution.

  2. Nothing but the TRUTH! Well said and well written..unfortunately not a lot of people will heed to this truth for as it is said; 'You can sway a thousand men by appealing to their prejudices quicker than you can convince one man by logic'

  3. Too long to read. However, I wonder why you are not advising the government of LA republic for their wrong strategy of keeping the country together. Tapang is not writing as tapang ivo but as an entity(consortium) so I stand with him. The struggle continues.

    2. Dont be stupid..your English isn't even good.if you have nothing sensible to say,be quiet.You are part of those who are dragged foolishly into the mud,in the name of fighting for ambazonia.We want to solve our Anglophone problems,but by using more sensible strategy.So please perfect your English before even claiming to identify as an Anglophone..For those who can never be patient to read,talking about the message being too long,I understand why you have alot of problems in your lives.Patience is a virtue and I guess you would start being more reasonable and rational in your judgements if you cultivate the culture of patience,especially concerning things that are important.Please please anglophones,those who don't have reasonable things to say should really be quiet.Because I've realised this strike has given room for a lit of non sense to be published just by anyone.think before you sat anything.Nice weekend..

  4. If you could focus this energy of yours to La republic we could be some where close to winning. Ironically you are doing the same thing you are acusing Tapang of by threatening his family. Sick hungry and attention seeker. Focus on the problem which is La republic. For a morment i thought you were making sense.

  7. With all due respect Tapang Ivo Tanku and Mark Bareta , my must say you guys have don a great job so far , i salute you guys for your affords, for standing as leaders in the southern Cameroon struggle , But for how long will it be like this , cause from what i have come to understand as many will agree with me there is no focus on what the people will achieve at the end of this (i know every one will say federation or total independence ) that will be great for us , but can we really achieve that by ghost towns? Most we wait for foreign organizations to come and give us what we want?, Come to think of people of West Cameroon now follow your lead and respect what ever you ask them to do , if i can remark , some few weeks back it was operation make a card post #freeourleaders ,none of the leaders was and up to date all the leaders at still in prison , we have observe ghost town for more than 2 months now and yet not a single work for the wicked regime ,Our brothers and sisters in foreign countries have storm basically all the UN/ Embassies and yet no word , all we get on our phones these days is observe ghost town , YES. but the billion dollar question here is AFTER THIS WEEK'S GHOST TOWN AND BOYCOTT WHAT NEXT? we can't keep observing ghost towns for ever people are getting tired of the ghost town they need a new strategy or make it to 1 WEEK ,They don't give Independence you take it""SO IF SOMEONE IS KEEPING OUR THING(INDEPENDENCE) lets take it ,I THINK THE TRUE LEADERS HERE ARE THOSE WHO STAYED AND FOUGHT AND WERE ARRESTED ,if all the leaders are running who then is to lead the people in the struggle , every one should be a leader this way they will have to arrest everyone which is mission impossible , running or hiding won't help this struggle . Moses in the Bible did not run from his his people , he stayed with them still the last minute , the children of NW and SW Cameroon have been scattered all over and are like lost in the wilderness because their leaders were the first to take off, If you will look well AFRICA has a shape of a pistol Gun and again NW and SW of cameroon at the the trigger point of that gun , we the children of NW and SW have the gun , it's time to pull the trigger and we don't pull the trigger by running , even the Bible says, DURING THE DAYS OF JOHN THE BAPTIZE THE CHILDREN OF GOD SUFFERED VIOLENCE AND THE VIOLENT TAKET IT BY FORCE,in my own words i will say DURING THE DAYS OF PA JOHN FRU DI THE CHILDREN OF WEST CAMEROON SUFFERED VIOLENCE AND THE VIOLENCE KILLED THEM BECAUSE THEIR LEADERS WERE NOT MEN ENOUGH .WHY CAN'T THE LEADERS BE STRONG TO MOVE WITH THE PEOPLE LIKE #MANCHO BBC AND THE OTHERS WHO STOOD IN-FRONT OF THE PEOPLE. PLEASE LEADERS DO SOMETHING NEW the gosh town is not working again , it's like give a child a load to cover a particularly distance every day , eventually the child will get use to the load and the distance , he only feels the effect again if you add either the load or the distance . THANKS FOR READING #DELORDSON

    7. Franklin Sone you are already a black leg as of today. we don't want people who are week in spirit for our struggle.Hopefully someone has bribe you to come out and write. this your sorry ass assay to put weakness in the heart of this brave Ambazonian. Nelson Mandela spend 27 yrs in jail and his people were free.Tapang we are all behind you. History is in the making and The Almighty will guide you. Don't let weak and negative comments to distract you. there is no journey to freedom that is smooth.

    8. I have been listening immensely for this struggle for a while, but the above message has catalysed me to voice a word.First of all, great thanks to Ivo and Mark for sacrificing their time to lead this struggle. I will like to create everyone awareness that these guys are merely volunteers. They are not been paid for all their time spent for leading the struggle .Some of us who have NOT yet carry any leadership position may think that it's easy. But let me assure many of us that it's NOT an easy task and will never be when it concern a struggle of this Caliband . If u are part of the struggle get on board and let's work together as a team a single goal. Some of us spent our time doing our personal affairs, and relaxing with our families only to come online for a minute to criticise what volunteers have been doing for long. Let's be mindful and be constructive.
      Please, we need many open letters to LRP like the teachers and the loyals did in a mature approach. I don't think Mr Tapang or Mark needs your open letters sir. Sorry!!
      To you "thelordson" thank you for your wisdom words. We should ask ourselves after the ghost town what NEXT?

    9. Don't be stupid Mr Buka if you have nothing to say,be quiet.It's very obvious that the strategy is not the best.Because we can't see results.This is a call for review of strategy..People just wake up and say all sorts of non sense without thinking critically.Some anglophones are really acting like lost sheep.Mr Tapang Ivo and Mr Bareta,you guys have lead us to where we are.Take your responsibiu and come up with better strategy,because the candidates truth is what you've done so far isn't working.And I can assure you that this 11th February boycott would change an inch of the government's reaction towards this issue.So please stop focusing on very trivial things and come up with better strategies

    10. Well,the greatest fighter is the one who talks openly.Ivo is a great guy,this writer is inviting people against another ones family for political differences.Man I understand you have been bribed to write your article but the good God will protect Ivo and family.Mr writer you are jealous and a devil. You will be paid for a bad job done Mr writer.

  8. Finally someone speaks up. I have had this conversation with a couple of friends but the fact that you voicing out an opinion which opposes Tapan gs makes you a "Black leg" and his fans rain insults and threats on you like you were the devil. It is important that while being the change we want,we also be concise that not everyone heed to your strategies and paths. If we continue hating on those who voice out opposing opinions, I wonder what foundation we building and we thus are not very different from the government we fighting against. #freedom should apply in every domain....and that of speech which is a basic human right. Thank you sir for being brave enough to outline these issues. Very well done.

  9. I have one question to the author of this write up.

    Please share with us here what you would tell these numerous southern Cameroonian mothers who are not only threatened but effectively battered as the oppressor tells them that because of their democratic choice to strike their children will be killed and eventually They are killed. As their leader what would you tell them? In other words advice Ivo on what he should do.

  13. Go get something doing n stop the rattling. No time to think about Tapang. Do your own n stop complaining. If you where up to the task , you could have been included in the team . Now you are not , all you do is try to seek for notice . You want to seek for notice , do it with Biya and black legs . Don't type rubbish in the name of democracy . This war is big with so many opponent.You run away from the opponent and attacking your team mate . Crying baby, grow up !

  16. Franklin sone writes with malice! This is not a genuine warning from a friend. This is a vicious intention to bring down somebody you have developed hatred for because they have unexpectedly come under the spotlight, a craving you seem to have. I don't know Ivo Tapang but do i even need to know him to see what you're getting at. Who warns an erring friend of impending danger through open letters? Why all these links to Islamic terrorism? Aren't you trying to help "your" friend's enemies build a case in that direction? I'm no specialist at reading minds through a piece of art work. I don't even need to be one because your intentions seem to jump out of the page at anyone with a second to spare reading your open letter. My brother, it's okay to seek some of the limelight your friend is enjoying but you don't have to hang him out to dry to get it!

  18. I don't see any wrong doing on the part of my well educated Tapang. By demanding this traitors or family members infos did not in anyway implies a direct call to violence .I can't recall the countless times Tapang Ivo has condemned violence in this our collective fight. This is a total misinterpretation and distraction to our struggle. Mr man please if u don anything meaningful to contribute to this struggle shut the he'll up and breath again. Tapang Ivo and Mark Bareta are putting their lives on the line to lead this fight. Instead of praising their courage, you're here talking trash. Na God go pay you black leg

  20. You guys should men up for a while because at the start of this struggle you must have heard the consortium advising us all that the fight is going to be a long and tedious one and all we need to do is to be steadfast and be strong. Don't look at the consequences of ghost town now for you can't see but those whom the ghost town is against can feel it that's why they are desperate. Furthermore the consequences of school boycott have not kick in yet. Please learn to exercise patience. About what happens next after ghosttown wait and you shall be told you don't expect plan b to be exposed while plan a is still going on. For those talking about traits if you can read and understand no one has exposed nor threatened anyone's family so mind the way you speak on media about people. We understand there are blacklegs all over the place but every game has its rules and regulations.
    Other countries have fought cold wars for more than 3years and they won so rest assured that we have this struggle in our favour we just need to be United and steadfast.
    Long live west Cameroonians.

  22. I ACCEPT WITH YOU.
    THERE WAS A DAY THAT MARK BARETA PUBLISHED AN INFORMATION HE RECIEVED FROM AN INFORMANT. HE PUBLISHED THE INFORMATION WITH THE INFORMANT'S NAME. I REPLIED THE FIRST PERSON AND TOLD HIM THAT ITS NOT ADVISABLE TO PUBLISH AN INFORMATION WITH THE PERSON'S NAME UNDER, FOR IT CAN PUT THE PERSON IN TROUBLE.

    IT TOOK SO MUCH INSIST AND REPOSTING FOR HIM TO EDIT THE COMMENT AND REMOVE THE NAME.
    I TOLD HIM TO DELETE THE POST AND PUBLISH IT BACK, FOR WHEN A POST IS EDITED, THE ORIGINAL VERSION CAN STILL BE SEEN UNDER (view edit history).

    I SUGGESTED HE COMPLETELY DELETED THAT POST AND RE-POST IT BACK FOR THE INFORMANT'S SECURITY.

    I INSISTED AND EVEN WROTE TO HIM VIA INBOX. I TOLD THIM THAT IF THATS HOW RISKING AN INFORMANT'S LIFE COULD BE, THEN I DONT THINK I CAN E INFORMING HIM IF I WERE THE ONE. I ALSO PLEADED WITH HIM TO SAVE THIS PERSON AND DELETE THAT POST.

    MARK BARETA BLOCKED ME ON FACEBOOK.
    I CAN NO LONGER SEE HIM ON FACEBOOK WITH THAT PARTICULAR ACCOUNT.
    BUT HE FAILS TO KNOW THAT I HAVE 12 FACEBOOK ACCOUNTS.

    I SUPPORT THIS STRUGGLE 100%, BUT THESE GUYS (MARK & IVO) SHOULD ACCEPTS PEOPLE'S VIEW AT TIMES. WHEN YOU COMMENT YOUR POINT OF VIEW WHICH DOESNT FAVOURS THEIR, THEY CALL YOU " A BLACK LEG".

  23. Please mr.Franklyn Sone you are fighting for your self and your familly people like you are just here for distraction, there are momenet in any struggle where we as a people must do away with our traitors i buy my Tapang's moves , and my Tapang ivo should be threatened by La Republique and not by a fellow Southern Cameroonian , you have raised the alarm and if any thing happens to mr Tapang's familly ,your self and familly will be hunted. The time has passed for those who have always fed fat from the system and claim being neutral, there is no neutrality at this point either you are for ,or you are against us, because i am sure in our situation now we are no longer demanding any federation because all its moderate advocates are jailed , now the youths of southern Cameroon want total freedom and eventually we need to purg our system list killing our own brothers for standing on our way.

  24. The write up is pure nonsense. You are trying to intimidate Tapang. Remember Tapang is not taking decisions unilaterally. The consortium does.
    You are probably an agent of la Republic. People have the right to believe what ever they want. Cameroon has no democracy like you claim.
    Be mindful of the fact that we can not sit quiet when anyone tries to betray this struggle.
    We must call betrayals to order. We have been making calls to anyone who tries to betray this struggle. Calling traitors to order has been an effective tool we've been using ever since we started.
    Stop trying to scare Tapang. We will continue to hold traitors accountable.
    We don't advocate for violence. Calling people to order is not violence.
    I will appreciate if you can take some time to address La Republic other than trying to slow us down with intimidation tactics in the name of democracy.
    Watch out.
    On a general note. Please stop asking about the next strategy. We can't dish out all our strategies for the enemy to get ready for a counter punch. Boycott 11 February. You will get the next stategy after that.

  25. Kodus to Ivo and Mark.We have never been in such a struggle to know what formula can work well. who is telling us that people are tied of Ghost Towns? Let the person propose what can replace this powerful weapon of civil disobedient to the ill Faith and devilish regime.How long did it take Sudan,Eritrea,The striking states in the Russian Federation,Gambia from Senegal just to name a few. In my opinion this is just the beginning and we are still a ling way to.Ghana is today the best democratic nation with the best economy in Africa,can we recall that Ghanaian were doted all over Africa? Did they not brush aside more than just an academic year to put things correct and even lost life? If we want something realistic we must be ready to sacrifice financially,spiritually,materially and otherwise economically and culturally. Forward ever backward never..Let those who want to sell our children and their future keep on.Let them go the great book the Holy Bible and read the verses that spelt out the fate of a traitor.Judas it should be recalled never used the money he was paid for selling Jesus. He died before Jesus..That is what is going to happen with all our traitors.. God bless Southern Cameroon.

  30. There is much wisdom in Franklyn Sone Bayen's cautionary words. He speaks with much maturity and three decades of involvement in the cause for a "New Cameroon", having shunned all attempts to corrupt his soul. I advise Tapang Ivo and many others to heed his woods.

    Perhaps this two decade old piece may be helpful:

    TERROR: POLITICAL WEAPON, SOCIAL INFECTION, DEHUMANISER:


    Terror or terrorism is the indiscriminate use of threats and violence for political purposes. It is perhaps the simplest strategy that a powerless or weak group or organization fighting an organized establishment is tempted to use. The nature of the organization of most terror groups, their support structures and their objectives often constrain them, forcing them to operate:
    within a tight inner circle,
    with a great deal of fanaticism,
    with limited and thinly spread manpower,
    with light and limited materials or weapons,
    And with a clearly defined objective to bring down their opponents.

    Perpetrators of terror with a clearly defined political objective are usually men who are highly committed to a cause, but have little or no regard for the nature of its realization. These are people who stretch the notion of the phrase “Tragic Necessity” to the utmost, pitting their causes against humanity.

    Terror is a powerful political weapon with a far-reaching social effect. And the recoil effect of an act of terrorism is unpredictable.

    As a political weapon, terror might appear to be the most potent option by frustrated but committed advocates of a cause that has been sidelined, snubbed and denigrated; or by a cause whose activities and members have been suppressed, repressed and decimated by its opponents, the establishment or the government. These advocates of terror often see themselves and their ideas as potential victims of annihilation at a time that they think they lack the means to openly resist. How far the organization embraces the methods of terror determines the degree of its dehumanization.

    Terror fully embraced is more sinister, threatening and sustainable if it has a base from which to recruit, train, regroup and replenish. The unacceptability of terror hinges the most on its social effects. And it can be very far reaching indeed.

    The use of violence and threats by a movement against a free, democratic, liberal, progressive and humane society to intimidate or coerce it, always backfires, with the movement losing its humanism and purpose in the process. Society in all its strata rejects the movement tainted by terror even if its cause promises to advance the wellbeing of the people. It was the case with the German group Baadar-Meinhof, The Italian Red Brigade, The Japanese Red Army and FARC-EP of Colombia today. Even the Shining Path of Peru lost its purpose and folded because of the country’s democratization and liberalization. And attacks by the Basque groups ETA (Euzkadi ta Askatasuna) only go to denigrate the genuine grievances of the Basque people. The list is inexhaustible...

  31. Franklin Sone Bayen, thanks u for the lengthy mail which has one intension- inflict fear on Tapang and weaken the struggle just like your Uncle Musonge will like to see. You failed to tell us what u've done in your own right to ensure the success of the struggle than to inform us of your bitter exchanges with Tapang and Barata. Yet you write, u are committed to the struggle.
    Now that you differ with Tapang's strategies must i be the one to ask you to propose alternative working strategies? Oh!  you simply don't have any apart from differ, isn't it?
    Sone Flanklin, you are indeed selfish!!! May i ask you a question, how many people have died on Tapangs directives? What i have noticed is that people like you don't have advise for your govt that murders people cos all your interest is to see schools reopen.
    My friend, my advice to you- get work to do and stop writing ideal and cheap correspondences that seek for notice. Shegeh!!

    My friend, my advice to you- get work to do and stop writing ideal and cheap correspondences that seek for notice. Shegeh!!

  33. Are some of you being serious right now? No one should condone violence of any kind even on the francophones who perpetrate those violence against us. This struggle has been a peaceful one from the start and that's how come it got thus far. If we had picked up arms, we'd be telling another story right now. My fellow anglophone brothers and sisters let us keep the original spirit of our struggle and not become that which we are fighting. I agree with Mr Sone and Mr Tapang has no business targeting people's families. His own won't escape the consequences and we'll have a situation of us fighting ourselves and give our so called government an easy way out if the anglophone problem. Do not get me wrong, I appreciate the work if Tapang Ivo and Mark Bareta but if it incites violence of any kind, not in my name. These people are listening to us and that is what counts. Let us not grow weary for in due season we shall reap from our struggle.

  34. Helping the oppressor build a case against your own friend. Wow ...I would have been using the word "defect" but i can't Sone....your write up is not that of someone who has ever had the friends back.....like Pilate you wash your hands.
    Ivo has become the consortium according to you!
    Bishop Desmond Tutu had it that "when you remain neutral to a situation in which people are being oppressed, you are siding with the oppressor". please be neutral in silence.....its provacating #freeadvice

  35. You have spoken well. I think no ones life should be treathened for having a different political view. We all have an obligation to teach them what is at stake and what we are asking for will benefit the anglophone community and Cameroon as a whole. Well done
    Tapang my friend i think this is a good right up. Restrategise

  37. I don't mean any disrespect but if you have issues with Tapang, you guys should solve it and stop dragging his family into it. Maybe i am not thinking this out straight but it seems like treat to me, not even on Tapang but on his family.

  41. Some one just repeated what i warned two weeks ago. that time is slipping between our fingers
    The UNsg cant wait any longer for our request for a peacekeeping force on our territory.The only solution to enable Sc form its own govt. because our leaders sluggishness
    and non visionary. but the end of this independence struggle will end very bad. cameroun will turn this place into another syria and
    the side with a very big bazooka
    will win. its going to be a winner carry all and UN will never intervene. because our foolish leaders never called for them officially.

  44. To the so called Sone, if Ivo was or is your friend as you say, you would have inboxed him. You either want fame you dont have or you have taken money to blackmail him. We are now watching you, Be warned.
