Disgruntled Militant Condemns Chief Ayamba/Nfor Nfor Rivalry Tuesday, December 24, 2013
By Azore Opio (thepostonlineedition.com)
The Acting National Secretary of the SCNC (Southern Cameroons National Council), Mathias Bisong Arrey, has condemned what he termed the ongoing rivalry between the SCNC National Chairman and the Vice, Chief Ayamba Ette Otun and Nfor Ngala Nfor, respectively. He expressed “the urgent need to revive the struggle for our liberation.” “Infighting between Nfor Ngala Nfor, Vice National Chairman and the National Chairman, Chief Ayamba Ette Otun, has paralysed activities in the struggle for our freedom for 12 years,” Bisong Arrey told The Post at the weekend. According to Bisong, they want to steer the affairs of the movement until the infighting is over. “We have not dismissed anyone. We still regard Nfor Nfor as the Vice National Chairman, but unfortunately they have held the struggle hostage due to their rivalry,” Bisong said. He said Nfor Nfor believes that he is doing the job for Chief Ayamba who is not appreciative. “In fact, Nfor Nfor is using the SCNC to enrich himself,” said Bisong. He said the Vice National Chair unconstitutionally and conveniently elbowed out members such as late Vincent Feko, who was Secretary General, Theodore Leke, Thomas Nwancham, late Albert Mukong, Isaac Oben Enow and even Chief Ayamba. “Ayamba himself has coiled away from the struggle,” Bisong told The Post, “we have no confidence in Nfor Nfor and Chief Ayamba.” He said Nfor Nfor goes on missions alone and does many other things outside the doctrine of the SCNC. “We cannot allow our people to continue suffering in bondage while two people rival,” Bisong said.
It is against this backdrop of frustration with the present SCNC administration that Bisong Arrey and others want to create an interim administration of the movement until the Nfor Nfor/Ayamba matter is resolved. “When Chief Ayamba was elected in 2003, Nfor Nfor became Vice National Chairman, while Feko became the Secretary General. This arrangement was constitutionally permissible. But Feko became disgruntled with Nfor Nfor and late Hitler Mbinlgo on matters of procedure and withdrew to form his BRISCAMIAC,” Bisong said. He said that trend of discontent continued and gave birth to such groups as SCAPO, RG, SCARM… “From 2003 when the present executive was put in place after the death of Dr. Martin Ngeka Luma and Chief Ayamba was elected National Chairman, it has never been known that the present executive has been dissolved to permit the emergence of a new one with Nfor Nfor as Chairman,” Bisong argued. He further said that Nfor Nfor had made frequent visits to Mola Njoh Litumbe in Buea since 2003 urging him to take over the leadership of the Southern Cameroons struggle. “This rather intrigued Chief Ayamba who could not understand why his Vice should solicit a strange leadership in the struggle,” Bisong said. He said after Njoh Litumbe failed to yield to Nfor Nfor’s intrigues, he (Nfor Nfor) connived with Southern Cameroonians in the Diaspora, decided to form a conclave of Southern Cameroons leaders that ended up in the creation of the Patriotic Coalition Front (PCF) of which Njoh Litumbe is the leader. “It is most unfortunate that the premier nationalist group in the country is breaking apart. I regret that some people are tearing the people and the struggle apart. Two wrongs cannot make a right,” Mola Njoh told The Post. “I was a bit troubled when Nfor Nfor dismissed the National Chairman in Bamenda.
We are fighting for the liberation of Southern Cameroons and this people are busy toying with the struggle,” he added. Meanwhile, Bisong Arrey said they would revive all the structures of the SCNC such as counties and local government areas. All attempts to reach Nfor Nfor by phone to comment failed.

Cameroon’s political institutions are experiencing an unprecedented U-turn in its democratic structure and representation, but for the constitutional council. This tinny country south of the Sahara with an approximate of 15 million inhabitants are witnesses of recent unprecedented change from a leader none ever dreamt of. He is Paul B. Mvondo Biya born some 80+ years ago by his missionary parents from Equatorial Guinea. Although it is widely believed this impoverished son of a catechist was rescued from the Catholic seminary for a more luxurious and flamboyant French education; it was fate through the milky hands of late president Francois Mitterrand a former Ahidjo protégée that opened his glorious journey into political prominence.

As April 14, 2013 draws closer, much has been said about ELECAM and the supreme court impersonsting for the constitutional council and, much also forgotten about the Ministry of Territorial Administration and Decentralization (MINAT), the defacto ELECAM. The transcript of else while minister of MINAT Marafat Hamidou Yaya turned ‘Kondegui’ prolific writer and critic says it all; “MINAT still runs Cameron’s elections”. This irony slams the door to any credible elections in this central African ‘France outre mer’ country. However, Late Mitterrand student Paul Biya is not the problem this time around but Cameron’s hungry Councillors who are too naive to embrace democracy by shunning Biya and cohorts.
Nontheless the absence of a true and convincing opposition makes the burden on Cameroonians even worse. Not until MINAT announced the presence of 200.000.000 frs CFA that eyebrows already raised as who is to embezzled what. I feel the powers of the special criminal court irrespective of its romance with Biya should be broaden to cover corruption in the private sector. After all Cameroon is a defacto communist state made up of oligarchs like Fotso’s thus raising the question as to what is state or private ownership.
Back on the senatorial elections, as witch hunting ravages the South West region implore by same person who created the ‘came no go graffi’ syndrome. Is high time our courts reclassify the term ethnic cleansing to deter morons like Mbella Moki Charles (Buea Mayor and CPDM Baron) on his anti North West sentiments. We know Biya has won the elections because he still has to appoint 38 of Cameroon’s pension senators using his special prerogatives as per the January 1996 fragmented constitution. But the other 62 should be genuine men and women though at their dying ages who can create a balance with the house of assembly a ‘Nordese’ inheritance.
Small wonder is the defacto constitutional council trying to appease its master Biya by bringing the CPDM lists back into play in the North, and going by the say ‘SCRASH MY BACK I SCRASH YOUR OWN’ offering the West region to the SDF as a thank you for participating and making the polls legitimate.
Let’s wait and see what happens next
