Cameroonian actress and CEO of Black Diamond Films writes on the Anglophone Cameroon issue and “secession wahala” in Cameroon.

After several months of silence, Nkweti decides to speak again. October 20, 2017 she wrote on her Facebook wall : 

“​It breaks my heart every time I come online and I see pictures of people who have  u been hurt or killed due to this secession wahala.

I  had stopped speaking on the crisis because every time I said something, it was misconstrued. I’ll try to express myself simply but in detail. 

I got to Cameroon in November and was greeted with anti-riot trucks and gears. I expressed concern about the young people I’m the streets breaking call boxes at the side of the road and using the debris to attack policemen, policemen who have been tactically trained to inflict pain and hurt on whom they deem necessary. I called out the police force on their brutality as well on the unarmed, unresistant and neutral inhabitants of the area.

This situation which has escalated due to misinformation, misleading leaders” and false martyrs, is causing us to lose knowledge of the cause of our discontent.

Ruth Nkweti

Facts to be considered….

– No international body will intervene on a domestic matter until the effects spill over into other countries

– The president of Cameroon doesn’t act unconstitutionally (read your Constitution that the members of Parliament voted for) hence ICC is out of the question. He is a smart man. (Know who u are up against)

– if you threaten the territorial integrity of a country, you will be met with military force…. ( They are not aware of your methods of seizing the territory) .  I don’t condone the used of deadly force in any way form or size

– Violence begets more violence … And we are not in the position to survive that. This bombing up and down will trigger another military response.

– we are not ready for a transition… We are aggrieved and that clouds our objectivity

We need to take a moment band reassess our objectives. What are the problems s we are facing and what are the change we want to see.

This reassessment is necessary so people don’t die in vain 

May those who have lost their lives to this fight find peace.”

  1. I think that everything posted made a lot of sense. However, think on this, suppose you were to create a killer post title? I am not saying your content isn’t solid, however suppose you added something to possibly get people’s attention? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is kinda boring. You should peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create article titles to get viewers interested. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get people interested about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.|

  2. I’ll immediately take hold of your rss as I can not in finding your email subscription link or newsletter service. Do you have any? Please allow me recognise in order that I may subscribe. Thanks.|

  3. It is in reality a nice and helpful piece of information. I am satisfied that you simply shared this useful information with us. Please keep us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.|

  4. Nicely put Ruthy. We have a problem, we know the problem, we know the solution but we don’t know how to solve it. The moment one person stands out with an idea, he is met by stiff opposition from the same side he “seems” to want to help. Next thing you know, another person has risen and gets some support and some opposition… This back and forth dance highlights the disunity even among the minority and marginalized and secession won’t come until we understand what it entails and how it should be handled before l, during and after if at all.

  5. I truly believe this internet site needs far more consideration. I’ll probably be once again to read much more, thanks for that information.

  6. naturally like your website however you need to test the spelling on several of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very troublesome to tell the reality however I’ll surely come back again.

  7. Howdy could you inform me which blogging platform you are utilizing? I am going to get started with my own website on short pick up lines in the future though I’m having a hard time making a decision.
