  1. For any country that takes a strategic look at things. An ambassador of America, Britain or France with a baground of working in Syria where the French join America to change government unsuccessfully. Things should be clear of what is behind.

  2. New ambassador!
    100M Euros in loans to support the genocide of Anglophones with the goal of depopulation of Anglophone Cameroon like Bamileke land in 1960’s
    Black Equatorial wannabe French Africans jubilate as the Republican army turned Presidential tribal militia kill Anglophones only because they are Anglophones to promote France’s colonization of Anglophone Cameroon.
    Welcome to Equatorial Africa where the whiteman needs only a few b greedy Blackmen to kill and destroy a nation in the name of France and French culture.
    No convictions, no principles, black on black genocide by Africans who speak French and now believe they are superior.
    Republican army in Sudan and Algeria, Tribal Presidential militia in the Equatorial forest.
    Low IQ

  3. LRC new president lol. Most stupid Africans reside in CEMAC

  4. Age 56 and still working; unusual for the lazy french who work few hours, demand more pay nd retire early because franafriqe is paying for their pension. Another thief on the prowl for African wealth! Hopefully he can teach biya that it is healthy democracy to have demonstrations like the Yellow vest protesters are doing in his country!

  5. France1s representation from Syria. He surely, has come home with bloodied hands,
    after the masacres of Syrians – a foreign sovereign people.

  6. Ambozonians get him. This is your true enemy and the people you should be kidnapping and not your fellow Cameroonians because they disagree with your foolishness. But of-course you can’t as your thugs don’t have any balls.

    • Who have balls? The BIRS that are harassing, mutilating, looting, murdering, torturing unarmed grandmas, babies, women as they kill, roast and eat domestic dogs? Why don’t u go after him now that your Mbalmayo big balls ate oversized? Let him enter Ambaland and see red. We stay in Ambazonia because it’s our home. No need to venture into Bulu/Betiland. That your large mouth deserve some better slaps.

      • L’enemie. It looks like you just like having your foolish dreams which will never ever come to fruition. Stop sending innocent children to their early graves because of your foolish dreams. There is no such thing in Africa as Ambazonia. That foolish name even sounds eastern European. I am a proud Santa free born (wan meumbe 100%) and have nothing to do with your Ambazonia foolishness nobody in the world cares about. You can call me Mbalmayo or whatever as most losers do to truthful people I don’t give a damn. If your thugs have any balls they should try going to Santa again and my boys this time will cut off their tiny bangalas together with their wrinkled balls. Your thugs go to small villages and threaten people who don’t support your foolishness and think you are strong. Mbut people.

  7. LA RIPOUBLIQUE thief our ressources, buy weapons with the money then come and kill us with the weapons from the money of our ressources weh dem thiefam. La Ripoublique Voleur. Assassin. Bandit. BEtIS BULUS Voleurs. Assassins. Mangeurs de chien. Traitre.NoBoDy Can Accept THAT. NO ONE

  8. At some point if the LRC terrorists will not stop killing Ambazonians, we will have no choice but to start going into offices in Ambazonia where LRC citizens work and taking them down.

    At that point, Ambazonians who work in LRC will have to make a choice to leave and come back or stay and face the consequences. If they come back and LRC citizens leave Ambazonia, the separation will come by default.

    The Bamilekes are cowards–go back to your dirty muddy villages, NOW.

    We are at war. KILL THE FROGS in Ambazonia. If there are any LRC citizens in your neighborhood, inform Amba boys and they take care of them.

    Please, spread this message around.

    • Please stop nursing genocidal thoughts on this forum!! If you have something of that sort in your mind, please keep it for yourself!! That is wicked of you!! This is how you discredit the real struggle.

    • Kumkum Pass Garri

      @Amba man

      You are not at war!

      You are part of the terrorist comedy revolution called ambazombiya.

      Kawa Yannick is now working with the BIR. He has over 40 amba boys ho re ready to put down their weapons. These prodigal sons will be reintegrated with the people.

      You should start preparing to go kill the frogs by yourself. Amba boys are disarming! They now realized they were scammed by amba fools/losers in the diaspora who are focused on fighting for positions in an imaginary country. Craze people them! God punish wuna! Idiots!!

      Your chief journalist Mark Bareta claims he cant speak good English because Paul Biya did not teach him English. The dumb clown also claims he can count dust! He claims Kah Wall is one dust! Is Kah Walla a dust in ambazombie English?
