Equatorial Guinean foreign minister denies media reports on border wall with Cameroon

YAOUNDE, Aug. 16 Xinhua | Equatorial Guinea’s foreign minister, Simeon Oyono Esono Angue, on Friday denied reports that his country is planning to build a wall along the border with its neighbor Cameroon.

In early August, Western media reported that Equatorial Guinean soldiers had crossed the Ntem River that forms a natural border between the two countries and erected milestones in the town of Kye-Ossi on the Cameroonian side.

“The wall does not exist. The people talking about the wall lack information. When there is a problem between two countries, it is necessary to solve the problem through peaceful and diplomatic means. The media is free to propagate information but I insist that there is no wall,” Angue told reporters in the capital of Yaounde after meeting with Cameroonian Prime Minister Joseph Dion Ngute.

He said he was sent by President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of Equatorial Guinea to consolidate bilateral relationship which he described as “excellent” between the two countries.

In late July, Cameroon’s army chief Rene Claude Meka toured the 180-km border between the two countries and warned that Cameroon would not tolerate any “expansionist ambitions.”

  1. Two stories from two ministers. Which one correct nor?

  2. SC will build a giant wall west of the mungo. LRC IS EVIL

    That said, Dr Ayaba is at present in Canada. He was invited by Canadian politicians to discuss the Anglophone palaver.
    LRC Ambassador tried in vain for Dr Ayaba to be arrested by the Canadian police citing the sh*thole warrant of arrest of LRC. The Canadian police said N-I-E-T. The so-called “one and indivisible” LRC was humiliated. in Canada.
    As a corollary, Dr Akwanga was invited by Ghanian politicians to discuss the Anglophone palaver. The so-called ” one and indivisible” LRC brandisher her sh*thole warrant of arrest. The Ghanian police interrogated Dr Akwanga and found out that he was NOT a terrorist. He was therefore released and will be meeting Ghanian politicians to discuss the Anglophone palaver. LRC was humiliated in GHANA

    • The leadership of LRC is indeed INSANE. She does the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
      They arrested Agbor Balla, the momentum rather INCREASED
      They arrested Sisiku Ayuk, the momentum also INCREASED
      They are now wasting taxpayers money to arrest Dr Ayaba et al.

      Believe me or not, the arrest of all, I repeat all the leaders of SC can NEVER EVER stop the UNSTOPPABLE momentum or win the UNWINNABLE war. This is so because the revolution now belongs to the people of SC and not to individual leaders. That is the reason the divide-and-rule tactic of LRC has failed to stop the revolution.

      One thing is 100% certain: the Anglophone Question will COMPLETELY, TOTALLY, IRREVERSIBLY and UNCONDITIONALLY be resolved this time around come rain come shine.

      MARK MY WORDS

    • It will be resolved on the negotiating table, not at the REGION MILITAIRE.

      There will be only TWO options to choose from:

      1. A Federation of TWO states EQUAL IN STATUS ( cf. UNGA resolution 1608)

      OR

      2. SEPARATION of the INFORMAL UNION into two independent states ( SC + LRC)

      Simply put, COSMETIC options such as:

      1. a Federation of 3, 4, 10 or 99 states
      2. DECENTRALISATION
      3. commission on bilingualism
      4. Region militaire
      5.etc,

      should be considered as a sheer waste of precious time and energy.

      As a corollary, Dictator Biya recently created a new BIR base in Mabanda Kumba. This is crystal clear proof that he has at last accepted that the so-called commission on disarmament has failed PANTS ON FIRE. Only the FAKE Amba boys of ex-convict Atanga Nji has been ” disarming”

  3. Well, it is unfortunate, that death will take Mr. Biya away, without him fixing
    what he is spoiling today. Lapiro, was wrong in his song – `you must fix am oo`.

    • Are you sure your life is in order?
      Wishing one death is silly.
      You could go before Mr Biya.
      Think about that.
      Is your life fixed?
