  1. Rewarding the mercenary assistance they are perpetrating in beheading Ambazonians right? The Nigerian Senate is raising a case against their president and minister of defense. The Israeli general Mayer Heres is under fire for training the BIR militia orchestrating a genocide in Ambazonia. The US through ambassador Hailey is bending the hands of the UN to conduct a referendum. The pieces are finally falling together. Maintain your brutality and see how it shall fast track the disintegration of Cameroon right under your nostrils.

      And when that referendum decides freely and fairly that Ambazonians would like to continue in slavery.
      I, Épée Dipanda of the great line of my ancestors Mouelle and Din shall proceed to join the party of the flame-RDPC, the flame which burns everything that it touches to ashes.

    • Referendum in your dreams . US has no effect on Cameroon . Keep dreaming about a referendum . Ain’t going to happen . Keep buying the propanganda being spread by Mark Bareta aka Mark Bara, Tapang Ivo, Akosun Pauline et al
