The renegade secessionist movement in western Cameroon, built by disguised trade-unionists with support from Cameroon's disenchanted diaspora, has failed in its attempts to capture territory, control border posts and extract rents from subsoil resources and citizenry to nourish and expand their philosophy.
The ambazonic strategy has been a copycat of methods used by terrorist groups across the globe, except going on suicide missions to trade their own lives.They throw words around, such as genocide, refugees, indigenous people, self-determination, British Cameroon, massacre, mass-graves etc, to generate sympathy and attract international support.
However, the sheer foolishness and lack of foundation in their methods has attracted scorn on these childish antics from even the former colonists of Britain and France the architects and midwives of the historic State of Cameroon.
Propaganda and blatant lies have not only been the modus operandi to mislead unsuspecting populace to put themselves in harms way at the expense and glory of diasporic renegades in the comfort of their western urban jungles, but also efforts to recruit Niger Delta youths to engage in cross-border skirmishes in Cameroon.
With most of the ambazonic terrorists and foot soldiers hiding in Nigerian towns and brothels, they have found it attractive to copy Boko Haram methods, both against schooling and republican order, as well as carving a predatory haven.Their scam has been successful in drawing resources from the hopelessness of Cameroon diaspora, but has failed woefully against the resilience and turgidity of Cameroonians on their land.
At the beginning of a new year, the Republic of Cameroon is now at the cross roads to restore law and order, and regain the trajectory of a developmental state. The business world watches on, as President Biya and his government, annihilates anarchists in quest to instill order and republican decorum, so that business persons, particularly on the western flank of the southwest region regain normalcy in their trade.
