Let’s take a moment to ask ourselves these key questions:
1. What if Dr Nkongho and Dr Fontem are released today? What if they decide not to have any inputs in the struggle? What if they change their stance due to negotiations that have warranted their release? What if they are never released?
2. What do we now make of Mark, Tapang, Boh Herbert, Akamangwa, Wirba and all those who at one point had a say in the struggle? The above have proven to lack consistency, integrity and a minimal sense of leadership..
3. What do we make of all the parades we see on social media by desperate socialist who have been in dire need for self celebration? Worst of them are those carrying coffins in their parades? You need to see desperation on their faces. Not sure what they’ll tell their kids when these images are seen 10 to 20 years from now. Which nation on earth still does that in this century? What a shame to the cause and the people..
4. What do we make of all we have lost and yet nothing gained. Despite the stones being thrown at LRC and the party, they have stood tall and taller – keeping ahead of the struggle while making fools out of some of these protesters.
5. For all the boycotts, the country has still managed to live through each celebration ( 11 February, women’s day, labor day, 20 may etc) – where do we say we have succeeded in?
6. Despite all the interruptions of school, the GCE is being written. We feel sorry for your brothers and sisters whom you persuaded not to attend school. Be prepared to deal with their unwanted pregnancies and their youth delinquency.
7. For those who continue to ignite arsons, what is the outcome of the burning? How much impression has been made? Who have you impressed?
Biya and his entourage continues to laugh at this struggle with dismay. It’s like an adult refusing to feed because she/he wants the parents to spoon feed them. Inshort, its more of some grown men running around in baby diapers seeking to be recognized for the size of their diapers.
The level of amateurish expressed during this struggle has exposed alot about some Cameroonians. Worst of them are those supporters in the diaspora. They are simply a bunch of misdirected citizens with no clue of the reality and identity. And as a means of trying to show their worth, they settle on every desperate attempt there is to make their voices heard.
We have systematically killed the struggle. And the energy lost may never be regained especially with respect to the fact that the young man and old boys are now fighting to show their might as an attempt to prove their manhood to their wives, girlfriends and children.
We the silent majority, we continue to stand strong amidst the weaknesses that prevail and we await our moment to establish the stance for which we have held so dear and will use it to make the deal needed to keep throttling.
