Emmanuel  Ngwa mu Ntang  Nkweti


Fact of the matter is that the story of the Struggle (Kampf) of the Anglophone in this land must be told to the younger generation and when Mr Biya is so eager to get reelected as President of the Republic of Cameroon once again, serious thought should go into the implementation of The Buea Declaration and Institution of
The Federal Republic of Cameroon as it should have been.

Emmanuel Ngwa mu Ntang Nkweti


Like I said above, it is high time we come to our senses in this nation and region of ours rather than hoping against hope that the "confused" chinks will come to our rescue when the ship and lifeboats are all destroyed.

Emmanuel  Ngwq mu Ntang Nkweti


Today marks the tenth anniversary of the day that changed the World.
I am happy that George Walker Bush rose up to the challenge and that his able Sec. of Defense was by him in that most confused period. Today the dictators are quaking and confused asking themselves " who will be the next '. Three cheers to Bush, two to Obama and One for his republican challenger.

Emmanuel  Ngwq mu Ntang Nkweti


What else can I say?

The N D S the United States wanted to put in place should go ahead.

The rouble people should not rubbish such a great deterrent from being implemented. As a matter of fact if stealth is used then they need not be burdened with the knowledge of its effective activation - afterball the neo bullies on the block are the chinks and not the v p fellow.

Tears mixed with ecstasy animate me as I read this beautiful work. My regards to the patriots. The struggle continues …. God is watching and we will give account to generations to come that once upon a time, and a nice time it was, this land had heroes with big heads, mighty pens, foresight, and calm and focused.

Bennett Mbinkar Esq.

Thank you for sharing this important piece of history on the eve of 56th anniversay of the plebiscite of 11th February 1961. Just like was the case in 1993, we are at yet another crossroad. What did we get wrong almost a quarter of a century ago and what lessons have we learned from our mistakes? I do not see as much "grey hair" in today's Anglophone struggle like was the case in 1993. The older generations decades old experience is an invaluable asset that must not be ignored. Just thinking aloud.

I, too, was there! In the present resurgence, those of us who were there at Mount Mary Maternity, Buea, 1993, and still surviving, have failed to impress it sufficiently on our young dynamic leaders the following lessons:
1. Our struggle for restoration may never succeed as long as Biya is alive and in charge because he is the chief conceptual master and architect of assimilation
2. The greatest clog on our wheels towards freedom are appointment holders and aspirants amongst us
3. Never 'shege' the crocodile while you are still in the water
4. Infinite patience and commitment are indispensable for the force of argument eventually to triumph over the argument of force.
