Biya and CPDM Invade and repress The People Of Mamfe.
A young man called Ashu Maxim Beteck, born by Pa Beteck popularly known as Petit Papa, brother of Petit Paul was shot three times on the head up to scattering the head, the reason why he was buried without further delay. Ashu was a Ben sikin driver whose bike was stolen from him by the army officer. In an attempt to steal the bike, Ashu resisted, and the army officer shot him, stole the bike, and his diurnal turnover. The Victim hails from Besengue Quarters and leaves behind an ailing mother with a high blood pressure that has been aggravated because of this incident. Knowing how the government usually reacts when a uniform person commits such a crime in Cameroon, the people wanted jungle justice. The inhabitants of Mamfe took to the streets and marched to the Gendarmerie office demanding that the killer be brought to justice. Fearing a domino effect, the government sent in soldiers from Bamenda and Buea to repress and oppress the protesters.
As if not enough beating them with gun barrels, truncheons, kicking them with boots, sexually molesting women and children, that night alone more than 62 people were arrested and detained in the Mamfe Central Prison. Please note very well that they were taken to prison and not a jail. The arrests started at 3A.M on Thursday morning. Many old people even dotards were arrested via Kalekale. The doors of their homes were demolished, and some of them the force took down entire sections of the house. The young people were arrested, tortured, made to sleep in running gutters and potholes as a means to break their morale.
As of Friday, only 14 people remained at the prison as Mukeror Denise Tambe confirmed. Amongst the 14 left, none of them had anything to do with the protest. Thus, the government used this occasion to clamp down on political dissidents as most of the areas for this roundup were in opposition stronghold of opposition presidential candidate Ayah Paul. All of this by the same government our elites raised 77 million to support the president. The intriguing thing which cannot be a coincidence is that, most of the repression took place in the opposition strongholds in John Holt and Small Mamfe.
Here is where the politics comes in. Keep your ears wide opened.
Why was the government so quick to intervene when there was a war between Akwaya people and no one intervened? Why was the round up done only in certain quarters and not all the quarters in Mamfe and Besongabang? Why were some people detained even though they had nothing to do with the protests? Three words: politics of intimidation.
Since when did Mamfe become Acadelma? Since when did we start to sing “let us eat and drink for tomorrow we die?” We fought and defeated the Germans in the Mpaw Manku wars. We established ourselves as beacons of enlightenment. We were solid in unity and purpose. Here is the time. Behold your clarion call. Would Manyu people allow that boy to die in vain? One boy died in Tunisia, and the rest is history. If you cannot fight militarily, at least fight politically and call your parents at home. Tell them, no more CPDM.
My appeal to you Manyu people is that, no matter how much you love a candidate, you must not vote him or her if he or she is with the government and CPDM. The government should compensate the people for the loss and also look after the mother. I ask the people to be their brother's keeper to prevent further arbitrary arrests.Can you learn a thing from the Oguni people? Read , be informed and the truth will set you free!
Until then, let Ashu not die in vain.

I hear talks of schools reopening because children can no more stay home. Is it that all those who were arrested have been released, or is...
