It is surreal that only a few months ago we were talking about the monumental challenges those clamoring for a free Ambazonia state faced to now discussing the real prospect of Ambazonia becoming the newest nation on the bloc in Africa.
So much blood, pain and anguish have come to define the last several months that Ambazonians are in the course of writing their own history. The undercurrents of deep emotions transforming the region routinely go unnoticed. Ambazonia when it finally...
After three years of fighting La Republique du Cameroun, separatists fighting for a free Ambazonia are no closer to a state recognition. What they have achieved is an overwhelming local support for their struggle and that is no small feat.
The slow progress to a state recognition has frustrated many activists and diehard supporters who might have imagined their shear amount of determination and will power will cruise them to a finish line. Unfortunately, victory is still far-off, but their...
Mikhail Timofeyevich Kalashnikov might have died in 2013, but his creation the AK-47 first rolled out in 1947 still remains the weapon of choice for rebel groups and governments fighting each other around the world. No truer is that than in the restive Anglophone regions of Cameroon where separatists have taken up arms to fight Mr. Biya’s forces whom they prefer to call colonialists.
Mr. Biya, unable to convince Cameroonians that after 36 years of corruption, swindling public funds and...
After 1 year of engaging the Cameroonian military, Anglophone Cameroonians with the Free Ambazonia movement are gradually coming to grips with the stark reality of war. Civil wars typically last an average of 7 to 12 years. Are Anglophones prepared for that?
In a rare show of unity, the different Anglophone factions have chosen to put forward a united front. A choice they could not afford to ignore any longer if they wanted their struggle to last. They may have an abundance of vocal and silent...
The death toll, the destruction and carnage left behind, the hundreds of thousands of refugees running away from their homes not wanting to just be another body count, is the reality for most people living in the Anglophone regions of Cameroon.
What shocks most people is the amount of money and resources the Biya regime and secessionists are bent on spending to sustain their course of action and most of which is spent on acquiring foreign arms and foreign lobbyists.
Late in the fight and...
Conflicts are just normal and represent a natural part of human relationships. In fact people would not always agree on the same points at all times due to their differences in view of the case at hand. So conflicts should not be seen all the times as something negative for it might just be a struggle between two or more people to reach a better conclusion. In fact when conflicts are handled in a more constructive manner, it does helps people to stand up firmly for themselves and the others...
It all started just like any other protest. Teachers and lawyers went out to protest against Anglophone marginalization. The regime responded just like every dictatorship does with the military to quickly quash dissent. This was no ordinary protest. The protest was fueled by decades of suppressed anger, the relegation of the Anglophone minority to the sidelines.
Marginalized to the extent that many had come to accept their status as second class citizens. Citizens who are given...
Conflict between people can generally be termed as an inevitable and unavoidable component of human life. The parent-child conflict can be described as entanglement with confusing social, cognitive, and developmental factors for child and parent. Conflict is ordinarily thought of as something that normally exists and therefore is not a problem. Different scientists describe how conflict intensity affects, how people are involved in the conflict, and how to handle the consequences. The method of...
The men suspected of attacking women in Cologne on New Year's Eve were "almost exclusively" from a migration background, mainly North African and Arab, an official report says.
Cologne police also made "serious mistakes" in not calling reinforcements and the way they informed the public.
More than 500 criminal complaints were filed, 40% alleging sexual assault.
Apparent retaliatory attacks in Cologne on Sunday were condemned by the government as inexcusable.
A group of 20 men attacked at...
Maybe it is not always about the Benjamins, anti-Semitism or Islamophobia. Maybe we are just too busy trying to promote our own views that we fail to see what others are trying to say. No one is born an anti-Semite, a racist or whatever we choose to call others today. These are certainly traits society forces upon people. Although James Watson, the famous geneticist or now sort of, might be itchy to tell us it is perhaps some sort of genetic mutation from baby through adulthood.
We often make...
After being pilloried on social media by fans and foes alike for several days for his exaggerated tales from an Iraq War mission, Brian Williams is being suspended from NBC for six months and without pay.
Tuesday night's announcement capped an extraordinary and painful six-day period for the network. Television veterans could recall nothing quite like it: a network benching the face of its news division to penalize him for what the CEO of NBCUniversal, Steve Burke, called "inexcusable"...
