Cameroun anglophone: mission de paix impossible pour Samuel Eto’o

Franceinfo | Le footballeur Samuel Eto’o a accepté une mission de paix dans les régions anglophones du Cameroun en proie à un début de guerre civile.

Longtemps oubliée par le gouvernement de Yaoundé, la région est secouée par des émeutes, après des décennies de revendications économiques et politiques. Fuyant la répression de l’armée, 20.000 Camerounais anglophones se sont réfugiés au Nigeria.

L’international camerounais Samuel Eto’o, reçu le 5 juin 2018 par la ministre des Enseignements secondaires, a accepté la mission confiée par le président Paul Biya pour faire la tournée les établissements primaires et secondaires.

Plusieurs élèves ont été victimes des violences de la guerre civile qui oppose l’armée camerounaise aux séparatistes anglophones. 33 écoles ont été incendiées par les sécessionnistes et au moins 33.000 élèves ont un avenir perturbé.

Faire revenir les éleves en classe

«Le sport m’a tout donné, je vais partager avec les jeunes mon expérience», a déclaré l’ancien capitaine des Lions indomptables du Cameroun.
«Je me tiens disponible pour tout. Le Cameroun nous appartient à nous tous, on ne peut pas construire notre pays sans la paix», a affirmé Samuel Eto’o qui entend relever le défi de son nouveau rôle: émissaire de la paix dans les régions anglophones.

L’objectif de la mission du meilleur buteur de l’histoire du football camerounais est de ramener dans les salles de classes et exprimer sa solidarité aux jeunes qui ont déserté l’école, suite à la pression exercée par les séparatistes contre les civils qui n’appliquent pas leur mot d’ordre de grève générale.

Les violences ont fait une quarantaine de morts dans les rangs des forces de défense et de sécurité camerounais. Des centaines de séparatistes armés ont également été tués lors des combats, tout comme plusieurs civils victimes des exactions de l’armée.

Menaces de mort

Mais les partisans de l’Ambazonie, nom du pays que veulent créer les séparatistes, refusent cette médiation. «La seule façon d’attirer plus d’attention internationale est de tuer Eto’o une fois qu’il entre dans l’Ambazonie»: voilà le message viral que partagent les sécessionnistes armés, qui ont très souvent revendiqués des assassinats et commis les exactions contre les civils qui refusent d’appliquer leur mot d’ordre.

  1. Selfish politicians should leave this innocent young man alone. He has contributed enough in his area of competence to deserve exiting by the large, open door accompanied by applause.

  2. Samuel Eto’o’s Political Ambitions are going to lead him to an early Grave! Am just worried about him accepting this Assignment from Hell.

  3. Using Eto’o to lead the peace mission will be considered an act provocation by Southern Cameroonians. Eto’o speaks French, Spanish and Bassa- how is he therefore expected to communicate to pupils in these regions without a mastery of English language?

    • The cameroon government should not be putting the cart before the horse. How will the children go back to school in September when the Anglophone problem has not been resolved and with such insecurity around the two régions? You just want to ridicule Eto…

  4. Samuel Eto’o est Camerounais. Il va rencontrer des jeunes compatriotes Camerounais pris en otage par des terrorrists ‘Ambazoniens’.
    Un geste noble et louable de sa part.

    • It is a bit of a laughable situation here.

      Not too long ago, Anglophones were derogatorily labelled Les Anglo la, Les Biafra, today they’re des compatriotes and some are terrorists-the dullest Cameroonians, etc, these people who from my father’s generation had to travel to Yaounde and endure studying at the University in French, these people who have French teachers teaching their children and their courts overrun by Francophone lawyers without an inkling of the unfortunate common law that is the bible of the Anglophone justice system.

      The continuity of this condescending language can not be lost on anyone who has experienced these injustices in Cameroon. Yaounde and Francophone Cameroon should be very apologetic towards the arrogance that has been shown to the Anglophone Cameroonian.

    • In as much as i admire this young Man Eto’o I will advice him to consider this mission as one of the most dangerous task ever given him by the devil and to you Samuel “the little pride you have, do everything possible to keep” The person advising you should first send you to see our English speaking children, sisters and brothers who are leaving in thousands in Nigeria as runaways from their own land. From Nigeria go to the devil and tell him the truth, “leave Southern Cameroonians alone”
      done forget this popular words “A word to a wise is sufficient”
      have a nice day

  5. There is a reason why our kids are not going to school and lrc know it.
    Not only are our kids not willing to go to school,but the teachers are also not willing to go into classrooms and are being threatened to do so through the barrel of a gun against their will.
    We love our kids more than lrc,and a superstar will not give them more motivation to study that we could.seeing a superstar is the has nothing to do with the problems our kids are facing now.

    We would love them to stay out of harms way especially from loose bullets when they are outdoors.so it is for their safety and for lrc to completely withdraw its troops from of our territory, thats why we ask them to stay at home.so Eto’o should ask lrc to do what Ambazonians want and our kids will be back in school.

    • I guest your own kids (if you have some) are somewhere else in the world enjoying their childwood.

      • Should i tell you people where they are so that your thugs can go burn them?
        All Ambazonian kids are mine,and i love them all.

        • Don’t put that ‘Ambazonia ‘ etiket on innocent Cameroonian children. They didn’t ask for it.

        • Let me put it in a very simple way,tell your thugs to stop killing our kids.what formally used to be the NW & SW region of lrc is now the Federal Republic of Ambazonia.live with it.
          We decided to jion lrc through a referendum but there is no formal treaty binding the two states.

          All what lrc has been doing all these years is informal recolonization of another state.

          If those kids were human or innocent in the eyes of lrc,then whan happened in Menka and has been happening across the entire territory of Ambazonia would not have been happening.

        • @Bikutsi, I wonder when Anglophones kids suddenly became so important to Francophones, to Cameroon. This silly rhetoric has to stop. The Anglophone has never meant anything to Francophone Cameroon, whom they have always shunned away and labelled as Biafras, imbeciles and dimwitted.

          I am struck by profound awe as to why the hateful Francophones out of a sudden are so keen on staying with us in the face of all the hate and discrimination that they have vetted on us.

          You can’t eat your cake and have it at the same time!

        • Only moral lepers/sociopaths would profess love for children whose parents are slaughtered impulsively in the course of their operations.

        • @ Palapala stop intimidating Bikutsi. Your terrorist organization doesn’t represent us the majority of anglophones, the reason your thugs hide in bushes. Your thugs can only prevent kids from going to school in small villages along the Nigeria border. The kids in Limbe, Buea, Bamenda are all going to school. Go and stop them if you have any balls. Cowards.

    • BIG BIG LIES Palapala. Your propaganda and lies won’t work here. They are being threatened by the Ambazonia terrorists. Some of them have had their hands chopped off by the Ambazonia terrorists. Your evil organization is even worst than the Biya regime, the reason you have no support from the people of the SW and NW and you have to hide in bushes.

He things your foolish terrorist organisation does nothing but harm the anglophone cause. There is not a single wise man in this world that will support your foolish

        • @bobjazz son of Achidi Achu and original Menka boy.you things you know and are connected to everyone in Ambazonia.
          You are from Santa,Akum,Mamfe,Bacho,Nguti etc.do your parents know you are from all over the place?

          I gave @Bikutsi a simple lecture,i didn’t threaten her.it is not in my nature to threaten women.i give them great respect.

        • @ Palapala, I will not let you deceive anybody on this website. I will always correct your lies. I know you are being paid to spread false propaganda and I will not let you do that. Every righteous person on this website knows where I come from. You can add your Mamfe,Bacho and sh’t like that it will not deceive the righteous. You are so petit to point out a simple typo I made in my previous write-up. This is what low life people do when they can’t challenge the truth.

  6. The right address for Etoo Peace MIssion is Etoudi Palace.

    It was Dictator Biya who:

    1. declared an UNWINNABLE war against the peaceful people of SC
    2. SINGLE-HANDEDLY separated his country from the informal union in 1984 when he changed the name of the country to LRC
    3. refused to convene an INCLUSIVE and GENUINE dialogue in the absence of war
    4. refused to NEGOTIATE with WARLORDS during wartime

    It is imperative for Etoo to advise the evil and demonic Dictator that the war is unwinnable.

    The presence of Etoo to the victims of Dictator Biya will be considered as a provocation.
    His presence will surely increase the present UNSTOPPABLE momentum by at least 20%.

    THE WAR CONTINUES……

  7. This man may be Suicidal , He need to be watched.otherwise, Who would accept such a task? Even, Paul Biya himself have not visited since all this started.Where is Mouth of The Gods, Mr Bakari Isah

  8. Nemo dat quod non habet ( you annot give what you do not have). Samuel Eto’o Fils has never really had anything to do with Anglophones other than playing football and being admired and praised. Naturally, going to the Anglophone zone during these troubled times, Ms. Nalova Lyonga has had to invite him and initiate him for “the mission”. She surely needs image cleansing for herself and on a larger scale, the government she serves. It is all about interests, isn’t it?

    The question is how will it look like if Samuel Eto’o Fils were to appear in Buea or Bamenda escorted by a convoy of armed military men( his personal security must be guaranteed!)?

    You be the judge.
