The year is coming to an end and a new year is just at the corner. It is important for us to take stock of the miles we have covered this far in this revolution and to reassess our present strengths and weaknesses.
I will like to concentrate today on just one of those weaknesses and hope that in 2018 those who have been in the forefront or the backyard of this vice desist from it so that the collective effort that we set out to harness will prevail over petty insecurities and chronic egoism.
There will be no 'merrying' this Christmas season for most of us. For how can we go 'merrying' in the callous sense of it when some of our compatriots are being buried as I write this piece. Others are still in the despicable dungeons called prisons in neighbouring La Republique du Cameroun, and worse still thousands of our people- women, children and senior citizens are trooping into neighbouring Nigeria as refugees?
How can we make merry this season knowing fully well that a handful of socalled 'leaders' have sworn before God and man, that there will never be involved in any concrete united coalition, which every sane compatriot understands its importance vis a vis this revolution?
How will 2018 look like for our people in the midst of an unsolicited war waged on them by the colonial regime headed by Dictator Biya?
How can our common goal not supersede our personal ambitions in the struggle? Why have we resorted to cheap slingshots when we can direct our bazookas towards our common enemy, at this critical time when nothing but unity in solidarity and resolve to defend ourselves should be paramount?
Cameroonian author Patrice Nganang was arrested at the airport as he tried to fly to Zimbabwe a day after publishing an opinion piece sharply critical of Cameroon's president, a source said Thursday.
Nganang, who teaches literature at New York University, "was taken into custody yesterday (Wednesday) at Douala (airport)," a source close to the police told AFP.
"He drew attention to himself in recent days with several acts of provocation," the source said, also mentioning Nganang's Facebook posts.
Agents were waiting for him at the airport in Douala, Cameroon's economic capital, and he has since been taken to the capital Yaounde for detention.
The writer had been en route to Harare after wrapping up a stay in mainly French-speaking Cameroon, during which he visited the restive anglophone regions that have been hit by an anti-secession government crackdown.
YAOUNDE (Reuters) - Cameroon’s government has ordered thousands of villagers to leave their homes in the Anglophone Southwest region as it deploys troops to root out armed separatists who have vowed to loosen President Paul Biya’s long grip on power.
The deployment marks an escalation of Biya’s year-long crackdown on peaceful protests in the English-speaking Northwest and Southwest regions that has killed dozens of civilians and forced thousands to flee their homes in fear of reprisals.
Now, the government is using force to confront an insurgency that has sprung up alongside the civil unrest.
People fleeing villages in the English-speaking regions of Cameroon accuse government troops of killings, rape and harassment. Thousands are on the run after President Paul Biya declared war on secessionists.
The new Kumba-Mamfe road in the English-speaking South West Region of Cameroon, built to improve traffic and commerce, is almost deserted. It is the road that allows trade to flourish between Nigeria and Cameroon. But 32-year-old merchant Ethel Takem told DW that she and her peers had to suspend their trading when Cameroon President Paul Biya declared war on local separatist groups last weekend: "The number of check points is just unbearable," Takem said. She likened the president's soldiers to hungry lions let loose on a defenseless population. "Those who want to be killed can travel. I still have my life ahead, so I will not move," she said.
