Cameroon : SCNC To Give Its Fallen Leader 'State Burial'

The Southern Cameroons National Council (SCNC),which is fighting for the restoration of the statehood of Southern Cameroons, recently  held an extra-ordinary session in Bamenda, dedicated to the State Burial of the former National Chairman Chief AYAMBA ETTE  OTUN, and national security in general. 

Find below the statement following the meeting of the SCNC national Council:
                                       STATE BURIAL
     Considering the passing into eternity of Chief AYAMBA ETTE OTUN, the former National Chairman of the SCNC; 
    Cognizant of his dedication and commitment to the Restoration of the Statehood of British Southern Cameroons;
    Highly appreciative of his exemplary sacrifices to bequeath a rich legacy and give our descendants the human dignity they deserve and as ordained by the Creator;
   Determined to remain faithful to the struggle for Restoration of our sovereign homeland, British Southern Cameroons, till the colonial occupier is chased out;

The National Council declares:
1.      A STATE BURIAL for Chief Ayamba Ette Otun to be held on July 26, 2014 in Mamfe, the cradle of British Southern Cameroons nationalism. He was a  Grand Patriot.
2.      A week of National Mourning from Monday July 21 - 27, 2014 throughout the national territory of British Southern Cameroons and for all SCNC Diaspora Chapters and patriots. 
    Within this period the British Southern Cameroons Flag shall fly at half-mast both at home and abroad. Even the occupier of our land is called upon to give peace a chance in honour of the grand old man and leader as he joins his ancestors and other patriots gone before after having done his utmost.

The National Council Calls:
On all SCNC members in particular and patriots of our land in general, to mobilise massively and give Chief Ayamba, Ette Otun a befitting State Burial.
    The National Council mindful of the fact that Chief Ayamba, EtteOtun as the National Chairman was the lead representative of the SCNC  in Banjul in the case - Communication 266/2003 - against annexationist la Republique du Cameroun;
    Painfully horrified by the fact that the people's enemy bought some among us who behind our backs held talks with Vice Prime Minister Ahmadou Ali and were ferried several times to Banjul to withdraw the case against la Republique du Cameroun for annexing and colonially occupying our land and making us slaves ;
     Believing that this treacherous crack has strengthened the enemy's policy of divide and rule giving the regime the audacity to, with impunity ignore the Constructive Dialogue as approved by the AU Summit
in Libya since July 2009; 
    Mamfe is declared NO GO ZONE within the week of National Mourning culminating with the State Burial for the traitors, their collaborators and anyone who participated in the discussions that sent the trio - Isaac Oben, Theodore Leke and  Mr. Tita - to Yaounde for the Satanic dialogue.
    They should stop shedding crocodile tears and await the NATIONAL TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION COMMISSION when the right moment comes.
   Mamfe is equally declared a NO GO ZONE within the week of National Mourning culminating with the State Burial to the architects of the infamous Press Release of 9th June, 2014 published in The Median Newspaper No. 119 of Monday 16 June 2014, page 4 by a so-called Interim Administration of the SCNC. 

   These fortune seekers and opportunists should know that the SCNC has never been rudderless, it is not for sale, it has enough room for faithful loyal patriots and not greedy fortune seekers. The SCNC belongs to British Southern  Cameroonians and not a bunch of greedy-mindless clique.

    The National Council frowns and energetically condemns the increase in cost of petrol which has influenced hike in prices of basic commodities and the growing insecurity in the country. The 5 percent salary increase for civil servants is meaningless. If not the tactics of a government that cares less about the common man,what fraction of the population is made up of civil servants? What contribution to the national economy do they account for as compared with the farmers and buyam-sellam that make up a large chunk of the population?
     Such astronomical increase in prices of basic commodities only subjects the growing army of the unemployed, the under employed and farmers to greater misery, on the one hand and rise in crime wave on the other - a direct fuel for unrest.
    The National Council is alarmed at the recent murder of a teenager by name Julius Chai, a bread hawker, on Wednesday July 2, 2014, at the Foncha Street Junction on his way to buy bread for sell.
    Disturbed by the fact that the said soldier has not yet been arrested for necessary interrogation and charge;
    Mindful of the fact that President Paul Biya has declared war on Boko Haram and recalling that we have been victims of states of emergency, curfews and economic blockade, periods within which la Republique du Cameroun occupation forces without restraint maimed and sent unfortunate British Southern Cameroonians to their early graves;

The National Council calls on:
President Paul Biya to put an end to the killing of unarmed and defenseless British Southern Cameroonians.

The authorities to arrest the murderer who is said to have escaped and prosecute him for extra judicial execution of innocent Julius Chai. This soldier has like Boko Haram killed a harmless youth. Any failure  to arrest and prosecute him is tantamount to collaboration with the agents of evil or vandalism to teach the "Anglofool" the unforgettable lesson and perpetrate colonial occupation and subjugation.

President Paul Biya to order adequate compensation to be paid to the family that lives in abject misery and has lost its source of hope.

Considering the growing insecurity in the country and the recent brutal murder of Julius Chai aimed at inciting the population, the National Council frowns at and strongly condemns the provocative establishment of a Gendarmerie Brigade in the Ntambessi Quarter, few meters away from the SCNC National Chairman's residence. This will not in the least force the SCNC and British Southern Cameroonians in general to surrender to annexation and colonial occupation.

The National Council in the supreme interest of fighting for a common destiny calls on all British Southern Cameroonians to avoid giving the occupier of our land the open door to intensify the policy of divide and rule, greater repression and exploitation.

Consequently the National Council calls on the YIVE and OLITI tribes of Akwaya, Manyu County (Division) that have suffered much human casualty and destruction of property and all other communities in
conflict to put an end to all hostilities.

Done in  Bamenda  this 13th Day of July, 2014.

For the SCNC and on behalf the British Southern Cameroonian people,

National Chairman, (SCNC)
