The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting- Sun Tzu
Beware! There are wolves in the hen house, and they are some sneaky bastards. Like bacteria they’ve become immune to the usual dosage of antibiotics and are now indistinguishable from the chickens. The chickens are so busy fighting each other in hysteria that they don’t notice that slowly the wolves have stolen their eggs.
Don’t feel ashamed that this is happening to your country, it has happened all over the wold from Europe to the Middle East and across the ocean in the United States. Every country is facing a crises of identity that is manifesting itself in civil strife and citizens fighting each other. If you’re not careful you will find yourself killing your brothers while corrupt foreigners steal your wealth.
In America we tend to ignore the infighting that happens around the world, especially in African countries. We cannot afford to ignore them anymore, not when the rest of the world is descending on Africa like vultures and the same corruption destroying them is destroying us.
Cameroon is quickly walking towards a conflict which could forever change the face of the country. Now more than ever Cameroon must be united. A house divided against itself cannot stand, or so the saying goes. And it goes for a reason, Cameroon is a rich country.
I know what you’re thinking: “How can that be? There is so much poverty!” That’s because the wealth isn’t going to Cameroonians, it’s being funneled into the hands of corrupt politicians and foreign handles. The meat is being sucked from marrow and it is the Cameroonian that is suffering.
Cameroon is a country filled with patriotic individuals who love their homeland, not for the abundance of natural resources and potential wealth, but because it is their country. No history of colonization, no artificial lines drawn in the sand by foreign governments could ever change that.
So don’t let the exploitation of a genuine conflict change it either. Don’t let the corrupters of your government lead you down a path of destruction.
Two Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing in Cameroon
I know many Africans were devastated by the election of Donald Trump, but let me tell you about the bullet that was Hillary Clinton. Further let me tell you about her Clinton Foundation and what she has done to Africa and why Cameroon should be concerned that the Clinton Foundation had any contact with Cameroon whatsoever.
If there is one thing that is difficult to learn it is never accept anything from anybody when they don’t offer their true motives. It sounds really great when someone comes to you with altruistic intentions, but if they don’t tell you what they get out of the deal, chances are you’re gonna get screwed.
Where the Clintons go the Devil follows
The Clinton Foundation invited the Prime Minister of Kosovo to the 2011 Clinton Global Initiative annual meeting knowing full well that he had been implicated in a human organ trafficking scheme as leader of the Kosovo Liberation Army in the late 1990s.
In a 2010 in a report from the Council of Europe:
The 27-page report alleged that Thaci ran a “mafia-like” group of Albanian nationals — dubbed the “Drenica group” — who smuggled heroin and human organs in order to help finance the Kosovo Liberation Army’s fight against Yugoslav and Serbian forces in the 1998-99 Kosovo War.
Another country devastated by human trafficking and chaos is the cartel dominated Mexico. In Mexico the line between cartel, government, and business is thin. And nobody is the embodiment of all three like the uber billionaire Carlos Slim.
Carlos Slim’s net worth is more than $64.8 billion dollars. He is a Mexican telecom mogul, whose career’s “most interesting parts” are his links to businessmen “suspected of involvement in Mexico’s so-called ‘Cartel of the Southeast.” He is a Clinton associate and donor to the Clinton Foundation.
Disgusting I know, but maybe no Clinton escapade is as disgusting as the exploitation of Haiti when they were going through their deepest tragedy, a January 2010 earthquake that killed more than 300,000 Haitians.
Prior to the earthquake the Haitian government had not granted to any foreign government rights for gold mine in Haiti for over 50 years. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton managed to do so for VCS Mining an obscure North Carolina company named VCS Mining to mine the Morne Bossa. And who sits on their board of directors? Tony Rodham (a.k.a. Hillary Clinton’s brother).
According to Clinton Cash,
The terms of the first new gold mining license granted by the Haiti government were made with no Congressional involvement and the state of Haiti got royally cheated. The terms of Rodham’s gold windfall upset members of Haiti’s senate: The government’s royalties under the deal were just 2.5 per cent, half the customary rate. And VCS mining has an option to renew the terms for 25 years.
And get this, right after the earthquake when the Clinton’s so miraculously came to “help” there was a dramatic increase in human trafficking.
The Congo, one of the poorest nations on Earth, offered former President Bill Clinton a speaking fee of $650,000–a sum equal to annual per-capita income of 2,813 Congolese. Indeed, the International Monetary Fund ranks the Democratic Republic of the Congo dead last in its global income rankings.
You know what all three of these countries have in common? Rich natural resources, heavy human trafficking, and the Clintons.
So where does Cameroon come in?
Clinton Health Initiative received $1m to $10m from Cameroon Baptist Convention’s health board in 2010. The Clinton LGBT loving Democrat took money from an anti-LGBT church in Cameroon. Why would the church give money to the Clinton Foundation? Ostensively to combat AIDs in Cameroon. All of Clinton’s dealing are for some public health initiative yet these countries find their natural resources “sold” with the proceeds going to corrupt dictators and not to any of the people.
The second bigger wolf is no other than the man banned from over three countries, George Soros.
Don’t be fooled by the lies of George Soros. He has brought chaos and destruction to every country he eve touched. Any help from him has led to civil war or at the very least violent civil protest. If Soros is involved in your county, it is likely that your country is headed towards some kind of conflict. (Important to read my three part series on Soros here, here, and here.)
Convicted in France of insider trading, Soros specializes in weakening or collapsing the currencies of entire nations for his own selfish interests. He is known as the man who broke the Bank of England.
The man is so selfless that he sends money all over the world to fight corruption. He even started an organization called “Publish What You Pay“(PWYP) to address the problem of corruption connected with natural resource extraction through an international organization.
PWYP Cameroon’s action plan focuses on strengthening civil society organizations’ ability to collect reliable information, advocate effectively for transparency and good governance and ensure their own financial sustainability. Primary activities include training sessions for various actors in the EITI, production of high-quality research and documentation and public awareness activities on extractives revenues and their use for poverty reduction.Over the past three years, the PWYP Coalition in Cameroon has achieved great success and demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to ensuring resource revenue transparency and good governance.- Resource Governance
Since 2007 the Revenue Watch Institute has provided support to the PWYP Cameroon coalition for the implementation of their national action plan. RWI support is intended to help improve Cameroonian civil society’s ability to actively contribute to the sustainable management and utilization of extractive revenues for poverty reduction. The non-profit received $3 million from Soros.
A Wall Street-London centric front of monolithic proportions that ensures foreign competitors, including nationalized companies, are prevented from exploiting in many cases their own national resources, so that they may be reserved instead for the West’s corporate giants to plunder them. In many cases, this includes funding and organizing opposition groups to take to the streets and physically stop ongoing projects under humanitarian and environmental pretenses.
If RWI is in any war working with groups in your country or your country’s government, beware since their “partners” include George Soros’ Open Society Network, the OCED, USAID, British DIFD, Australia Aid, and the UN Development Program, all of which are directly partnered with the largest banking, big oil, defense contractors, and consumer multinationals on earth.
The very first “partner” on Revenue Watch’s list, Democratic Republic of Congo’s Action Contre l’Impunité pour les Droits Humains (ACIDH). As mentioned above the Congo faces some of the worst poverty and human injustices in the world and have done so for years. All with the “help” of George Soros and his cronies.
Letting him into Cameroon is opening the door for a friend and then being devoured by locusts.
Brief Historical Context
Like every country that has the stirrings of a civil war or secession movement, Cameroon has a large majority in conflict with a concentrated minority. Unlike in America, the distinction isn’t racial. Cameroonians are fighting for a culture that is represented through a language. The consequences of colonialism are seen in the conflict of a people fighting about two languages that don’t originate in Africa, let alone Cameroon.
In the late 19th century and early 20th century Germany had its sights on conquering Africa. Cameroon was one of those countries and officially became a German colony in 1884 and was dubbed Kamerun. Prior to that, parts of Northern Cameroon suffered at the hands of the Middle Eastern slave trade.
When Germany lost in World War I, Cameroon was split between France and Britain. And thus the seeds of division were planted. Two colonies two languages, and two different ways of governance. Where the French favored assimilation and a hands-on approach to their subjects (France’s colonial subjects in Africa are were given French citizenship in 1946), Britain preferred a hands off approach and managed Cameroon from their Nigerian territory.
A short rebellion later and Cameroon chose their independence in 1960 only the British Northern Cameroons attached itself to Nigeria, and the rest became whole. The British Cameroonians favored a Federation where there is security for the Anglophone minorities to have a voice in the Government. The President at the time quickly took off his accommodating mask and showed his dictator colors.
The Constitution was altered and Cameroon was a short lived Federation. Instead it became a united Cameroon secure under the leadership of the centralized authority of the Francophones. The various corrupt administration have gotten what they asked for, and fifty-five years later Cameroon is still not whole.
Francophones V Anglophones
In America, we think of minorities along racial lines (i.e. Black, White, Asian etc…) but within any population there always exists a subpopulation that is outnumbered by a larger population. In Cameroon the Anglophones are 20 percent and the rest are the Francophones.
The Anglophone region of Cameroon produces 70% of the nation’s natural resources yet the region is relatively underdeveloped when compared to larger Francophone region. This is what drives angers southern Cameroonians the most.
Many Anglophones regard May 20 as the day when they lost their freedom. The Anglophones were use to the federal system of government, which gave more room for self-governance to the various states, a prototype of the indirect rule British system of colonial administration. The French colonial system of centralization is centralization.
President Biya’s strategy seems to be forced assimilation (similar to the assimilation that Frankaphones faced at the hands of the French) and a brutal suppression to all talks of session. Biya would do well to remember the complaints that Francaphones had against the French when they fought for the Cameroonian independence.
Somehow that French superiority complex that Cameroonians hated so much when applied to them, was transferred Paul Biya and his cronies.
Although English and French are both official languages, President Paul Biya only places his French speaking cronies as teachers, judges and officials in their region. Most public announcements are written in French or if there is an English version, it is hardly big enough for long-range viewing. Anglophones are mistreated at the university and other public places.
According to Ekinneh Agbaw-Ebai former Research Analyst for Central Africa with Freedom House:
- For a region that represents about 20% of the population, accounting for over 60% of GDP, the fact that the lone oil refinery named in French (SONARA) is in Anglophone Cameroon, yet has been run by Francophone general managers with a predominantly Francophone workforce since its creation is unacceptable.
- Of the 700 ministers appointed since Biya took office in 1982, only 76 (10.8%) have been Anglophones.
- In the current 63-member cabinet, there are only six Anglophones (9%) and only, Philip Ngole Ngwese (2%) out of the 38 Ministers has a cabinet portfolio.
- There are four Anglophone Secretary Generals (10%) and three Anglophone DAGs (7%) in the central administration.
- In state corporations, there are less than 15 Anglophones (11%) out of over 130 general managers.
- Of the over 130 Board chairmen of state corporations, there are only 10 Anglophones (7%).
- Of the 58 SDOs in the country, there six Anglophones (10%) and only three of the nation’s 33 generals in the Armed Forces are Anglophones.
A country can only disenfranchise and steal from its people for so long before people start fighting back. And that is what they are starting to do.
Economically, Cameroon is highly susceptible to foreign influence
Nothing is worse for a country than when its young people cannot get a job. The young try to leave, and the ones that stay are vulnerable to crime and extremism. They are desperate and looking for any option that will help them reclaim their life.
They call us young rebels, saying that we want to divide the country…But as English-speaking people in Cameroon, we can’t find a job.-Edmondo Bayo
Cameroon is currently our 124th largest goods trading partner with $354 million in total (two way) goods traded during 2015. Goods exports totaled $221 million; goods imports totaled $133 million. The Department of Commerce estimates that U.S. exports of goods supported an estimated two thousand jobs in 2014.
FDI inflows to Cameroon, traditionally low compared to the potential of its economy, declined even further in 2016, reaching only USD 128 million, compared to USD 627 million in 2015 and USD 726 million in 2014 (UNCTAD, 2017).
Cameroon’s economy has the potential to become one of the most prosperous and best placed to receive foreign direct investment in Africa. However, it only ranks 166th out of 190 economies in the 2017 Doing Business ranking of the World Bank.
China is investing in ports from Malaysia to Mozambique as part of its vision for a Maritime Silk Road (MSR) linking eastern China with Europe via the Indian Ocean, Red Sea, and Mediterranean Sea.
Cameroon’s largest port is in Douala, which accounts for 95 percent of Cameroon’s imports and exports. The port is not suitable for loading big ships, thus requiring small boats pick up goods from big ships which anchor in the deep sea. Douala Port is not a deepwater port and so Cameroon set out to build a one at Kribi – with China’s help. China Harbor Engineering Company Ltd. broke ground on Kribi Port in June 11, 2011.
It was largely funded by multilateral and bilateral credit financing provided by Western governments. The International Finance Corporation, the private-sector arm of the World Bank, provided $100 million of debt-based financing, and France’s export credit agency COFACE and the U.S. Export-Import Bank each provided $200 million; private lenders coordinated by the IFC provided an additional $100 million.
Final construction costs are estimated to be $1 billion.
The Kribi Port will become an economic hub to promote economic growth in the southern region as well as the whole country.- Hand Bahiol Magloire
The Douala high way is being constructed by another Chinese company – China First Highway Engineering Co., Ltd.
Cameroon is rich in natural resources, especially iron, aluminum, oil, and natural gas; the government hopes the new port will make it easy to export those good around the world. Yet the Chinese have also managed to have it’s hand that with oil firm Yan Chang Logone Development, which has a $62 million contract for exploration and production sharing with Cameroon’s National Hydrocarbons Corp. So the Cameroonian people get neither the money or the cash.
There have been complaints that many of the jobs involved in port construction, even menial work like truck driving, went to Chinese workers rather than Cameroonians. Of the 1,125 people at work on the harbor in August 2013, only around half (609) were Cameroonians. Kribi locals complain of their homes and businesses being demolished to make way for new construction.
According to Global Policy Cameroon is falling into the trend of resource rich countries that are devastatingly poor:
Many of the world’s poorest countries possess significant reserves of oil and other natural resources. Yet numerous academic studies show that, controlling for income level, countries that are highly dependent on revenues from oil and other minerals score lower on the U.N. Human Development Index, exhibit greater corruption, have a greater probability of conflict in any five-year period, have larger shares of their population in poverty, devote a greater share of government spending to military spending, and are more authoritarian than those with more diverse sources of wealth.
Despite George Soros PWYP, the economy is heavily regulated in Cameroon. It’s dependent on exports of such commodities as oil, which accounts for about 40 percent of export earnings. The economy is further hobbled by inefficient parastatal companies in key industries.Biya is pushing his people towards conflict and inflicting foreign vulnerability
The Cameroonian economic crisis was a downturn in the economy of Cameroon from the mid-1980s to the early 2000s. The crisis resulted in rising prices in Cameroon, trade deficits, and loss of government revenue. The government of Cameroon acknowledged the crisis in 1987. Outside observers and critics blamed poor government stewardship of the economy. The government instead placed the blame on the fall of the prices of export commodities, particularly a steep drop in the price of petroleum.
No country can be free when the President is the head of the armed forces, the judiciary, the government and everything else. Elections are never fair since the election management body, Elections Cameroon (ELECAM) is said to be manned by cohorts of President Biya’s ruling CPDM party.
International magazines now rate him as the 23rd worst octogenarian dictator in the world, with a personal fortune of over FCFA 100 billion and several mansions to go with the loot. Economic analysts hold that all the ills that haunt Cameroon came with the advent of the New Deal regime in 1982.
Corruption and cronyism are pervasive. Bribery is commonplace in all sectors, from gaining school admission to fixing traffic infractions. Revenues from oil, gas, and mining are not openly reported. Ironically Biya ran an anticorruption campaign has been used to remove potential political opponents.
For the past six years, Cameroonians have witnessed a wave of spectacular arrests and detention of former top-ranking government officials and business moguls over corruption. Heading the list of arrests is former prime minister Chief Ephraim Inoni. Others are Marafa Hamidou Yaya, former minister of Territorial Administration, Jean-Marie Atangana Mebara, former secretary-general at the presidency, Urbain Olanguena Awona, former Public Health minister, and Polycarpe Abah Abah, former minister of Economy and Finance.
Many Anglophones seek a secessionist movement to become their own separate country and break away from the larger Cameroon. I tell them be careful, right now these movements are funded by unknown organizations and the pattern of increasing violence are in line with Soros led interventions.
Session will only lead to bloodshed and war, it leaves the Southern part of Cameroon vulnerable to falling prey to the very same trap that got them into the united Cameroon to begin with. A stronger Cameroon is a United Cameroon where foreign exploiters are thrown out of the country and corrupt government leaders are exiled.
Cameroon is exactly kind of country ripe for targeting by dishonest organizations
The economy is in shambles, the government very corrupt, and there is rampant human trafficking (a.k.a slavery that we’re not allowed to call slavery).
The U.S. Department of State is aware of the issue:
Cameroon is a source, transit, and destination country for children subjected to forced labor and sex trafficking and a country of origin for women subjected to forced labor and forced prostitution. Trafficking operations usually target two or three children, often when rural parents hand over their children to an intermediary promising an education or a better life in the city. Traffickers are increasingly resorting to kidnapping their victims, however, as heightened public awareness about trafficking has led to parents being less willing to give their children to these intermediaries.
More than 80% of victims are orphans and children from poor backgrounds, 64% of victims are girls and more than 95% of victims are trafficked by people known to them or their families. Some 50 Cameroonian women recover in a trauma center from their ordeals of forced labor in Middle Eastern homes.
Reports indicate the existence of hereditary slavery in northern chiefdoms. Cameroonian women are lured to Europe and other regions by fraudulent internet marriage proposals or offers of domestic work and subsequently become victims of forced labor or forced prostitution in Switzerland and France, with smaller numbers in Russia. During the year, Cameroonian trafficking victims were also identified in Denmark, Cyprus, Spain, Germany, Norway, Slovakia, the United Arab Emirates, and several West and Central African countries.
Government estimates say about 15,000 to 18,000 people enter the United States annually to work in deplorable conditions for little or no pay. These men, women and children are ensnared in global human trafficking — a lucrative and thriving underground trade involving an estimated 800,000 people worldwide every year.
Cameroon is on the rise, it is only countries with potential that are targeted by Satan.
A thriving trade in human traffic has developed in many parts of Africa mainly because of the grinding poverty in which many Africans live. So tell me who profits from violence and division in Cameroon?
Instead of Hillary Clinton’s sob story of why she lost, get Clinton Cash instead! If you ever want to know the hell that the Clinton’s have cause Africa you’ll find it there.
