The on-going struggle by SCNC activists coupled with the incarceration of 14 people duped SCNC activist, accused of holding an un-authorised meeting in a restaurant has led to leaders of the movement going to the UN to plead for Independence.
According to Mola Njo Litumbe, their journey to the UN is yielding fruits as they have been asked to provide ‘just’ 2 million signatures of Southern Cameroonians in support of the independence from La Republic, for the UN to dance to the music.
Mola Njohh recounted that when he went UN and narrated the issue at the UN as he has often done, he was asked whether it is because he has not been made a minister that he is complaining. “Everyone else in Cameroon is happy, we have no news” Mola Njoh said he was told. “Do you want us to start killing ourselves before you come? I asked them Mola said. “That’s how the idea of a signature referendum came about.”
Mola said he was asked to provide just two million signatures of Southern Cameroonians and the rest will be done. “Locally we have started”. Mola said. “You don’t need to march or hold a meeting and be arrested. The pen is mightier than the sword. I wouldn’t tolerate you going to the bush to fight.” He averred.
At Buea court, after sitting through the court session on Thursday August 25, Mola Njoh said La Republic has tended to divide the people of Southern Cameroon’s in order to rule them. He showed pressmen the sheets on which signatures are to be collected as well as those already signed by die heart Ambazonians.
To Mola Njoh, He is part of the accused. “I am part of those accused because I believe in the same principles as they do”. To him, the relationship between the two Cameroons is illegal because they has never been a legal union between the duo. “I have been saying all along that we never really joined La Republic….they just came to colonize us the night the British Army left at midnight on 30th of September 1961 and disregarded the fact that the UN had on 21st of April passed a resolution granting Southern Cameroon independence as from 1st of October 1961….and they added by joining”. Mola averred.
