Le gouvernement camerounais évoque une « cause accidentelle »comme première hypothèse de l’incendie à la Société nationale de raffinage

Investir au Cameroun | Un incendie, déclenché par une explosion, a ravagé ce 31 mai 2019, une partie des installations de la Société de raffinage (Sonara), située dans la ville de Limbe, région du Sud — Ouest du Cameroun. Selon un communiqué du ministre de la Communication, rendu public le lendemain du sinistre, «?les premiers éléments d’information dont dispose le gouvernement suggèrent une cause accidentelle?».

Le communiqué vient ainsi démentir une sortie attribuée à des chefs de file des mouvements sécessionnistes dans la partie anglophone du pays. Elle revendique une attaque menée par des hommes sous leur contrôle. Pour l’instant, les origines de l’explosion qui a entraîné l’incendie ne sont pas encore connues. Mais l’enquête ouverte permettra certainement de voir clair.

On sait simplement qu’elle est partie de la zone de fractionnement des essences consumant certains équipements du raffineur. Tôt dans la matinée, une lettre de la direction générale de la Sonara, adressée à ses partenaires, évoque «?une situation de force majeure?» et informe d’«?un arrêt de la production sur toutes nos unités pour une période à déterminer?». Le gouvernement se veut rassurant. Il indique que «?toutes les dispositions sont prises en vue de l’approvisionnement continu de l’ensemble du territoire national en produits pétroliers?».

Cet incident survient alors que la Sonara est dans une phase de restructuration et de modernisation. L’objectif de cette opération est d’améliorer ses outils de raffinages. Le gouvernement rassure également qu’elle va se poursuive. Pour l’instant, aucune victime n’a encore été déplorée. De même, une évaluation des coûts des dégâts n’est pas encore disponible.

English-speaking Cameroonians need to draw from their huge reserve of medical knowledge and Christianity to come to the conclusion and exert copious commiseration that President Paul Biya is exhausted physically, emotionally and otherwise.

Watch the strenuous effort of first lady, Chantal Biya to remind and help him raise his hands to wave at the crowd.

      You better shut up and be mistaken for a wise man than open your mouth and spew rubbish excuse of a bloody killer that will convince those reading you are a weak sheep goat. The pain those you are referring to are feeling right now will melt the skin off your back so just shut up. Was he forced to run or rig another election? I pointed out the other day that it is your generation that plunge us into this mess we are fighting to get out today. And I sure you voted for both the plebiscite and the referendum. We the never again generation will take it all the way to break the chains that your generation put on our neck. Garbage say exhausted.

  4. @JD, the examples you have given, concern but the people of lrc. Ambazonians can
    not be killed, only because they want to have Biya as their president or to continue
    any union with a people, who naturally, hate them and see them as animals. You
    have seen pictures of chickens, goats and human beings, killed by the lrc dumb military.
    Is there a difference between this three, in their understanding?
    To act as advocate for the devil called Biya, one like you, will bail him out with such
    examples. Can Biya, even pardon someone, who has committed such high level of
    killings in SC, at any one second, on grounds of any reasons you have listed?

      Joshua the delusional fool

      On May 31 2019Ambazombie terrorists burnt down the homes of Mboro people, stole their live stock and killed the remaining livestock at a Lake Nyos resettlement village. They even burnt down the mosque.

      On the night of June 2, the ambazombie terrorists killed a Mbororo old man for nothing in Wum.

      On June 3rd the Mbororo people of Wum said enough is enough. The Mbororos attacked and burned the Naikom palace in Wum. They proceeded to burn down many homes in Wum and even burnt an old man alive. They beat up the mothers and fathers of the amba fighters in Wum and then continued into the forest to go smoke out and annihilate the amba terrorists.

      Amba does not have monopoly of violence.


      I AM A BLACK LEG!!!

      @ Terrorist Joshua the Mbororo People eliminator

      Ambazonians will be killed if they attempt to terrorise “Black Legs” like Ekema and myself! I dare you to try.

      Johua why did you ask your terrorist friends to burn down the Lake Nyossettlement village and kill the livestock of the Mbororo’s who live there?

      Joshua, why did you kill Tantiyo and his mother in Wum?
      Why did you kill that old Mbororo man on June 2nd.

      Now that your actions have sent the Mbororos on a rampage against your intoxicated and manipulated coward fighters in the forest, how are you going to protect those illiterates from the Mbororos?

      Joshua, there is a shortage of amba fighters in Ground Zero. I am offering you and coward l’enemie air tickets to go to Cameroon so that the BIR can send you to Buea on a wheelbarrow.

  5. Lrc is going no where. They will import. Canada is already discussing a new contract to rebuild. Keep on dreaming. What has happened is ambazonia has invited the military to fako. Your boys will be roasted like soya.

    • As if the military is not already there you lousy son of a whore called @mbappe. Does the name Jacques Alain Ba’na mean anything to you? I mean the killer colonel that dispatched helicopter gun ships on October 1st, 2017 to slaughter our people with live bullets from the skies of Buea? Then we were carrying peace plants, today the contender forces are regrouping. We will push you monkeys out of Ambaland by force or fire. Dirty baboon inbred.

  6. Ces soit disant “Ambaboys ” sont incapables de réussir ce genre d’action. Ils sont tout simplement trop stupides pour cà.
    Ce sont des barbares qui n’auraient pas hésiter de massakrer des gens avant de mettre le feu à la Sonara.
    Les auteurs de cet acte sont ailleurs.
    Une question de strategie.
    Mais par qui?
    Allumez un peu vos cerveaux!

      Smelly lass ashawo are you still hanging around?

        @L’enemie Sing:

        Hail Hail
        Hail the Kumkum Massa
        We proud Cameroonians we pledge our loyalty
        Kumkum Massa (x2)
        You shall free our Country from terror
        And your blessings shall be like the stars above
        The most high God shall be our Guide

        We just sent General Fatman of Kossala and a few of his comrades to Buea on a first class wheel barrow ticket! GO BIR!! GO BIR!!

        We are waiting for l’enemie to come and save the amba boys that we plan to send to Buea tomorrow via first class bores ticket!
        The BIR will continue to neutralize the amba fighters hoping that amba leaders on the internet will come to Cameroon and continue the fight until the last internet warrior is neutralized in Cameroon.

        Amba cowards like l’enemie will switch their nationality to Cameroon to avoid the BIR.

        • Kum kum shet for dog smelly rubble from Komland who was not worthy of interiting his father’s estate and make it a point to exact revenge through LRC to his people. Dirty country man. Your pidgin with Kawa Yannick reveals that you are bush villager with outdated revenge tactic and I bet you even Nsalai or Nkwain Francis will not civilize you bush thing. Tell me about the case of Nsahlai against Tapang Ivo that was recently rejected and thrown out of a US federal court? Dirty for rice and water for beans idiot.

          @l’enemie the delusional and lazy ambafool

          In the Kom culture you cannot be the “chopchair” of your father. Right or wrong that has nothing to do with me.

          Unlike you my goal in life is not to inherit what my ancestors worked for. My goal in life is to create wealth.

          My pidgin is proof that I am a typical Bikom man and a proud Cameroonian. You can not lie that all people from the NW/Sw support the amba terrorism because I clearly do not.

          My comments are proof that you are delusional and stupid!
          It is a fact that anyone who thinks like you must be living a wretched life! You are wretched and poor because you are dumb, delusional and lazy!

          I continue to live a fulfilled life due to my education and hard work and not because I inherited my fathers property.

          @lenemie the Delusional and lazy ambafool terrorist

          I will continue to expose your stupidity.

          You claim that you want to create a country called Ambazonia which will include the Kom people who are one of the largest tribes in the NW/SW. However you are not ashamed to come here and throw jabs at the Kom people and their culture? That is proof that you are insane!

          I am a Cameroonian from the NW province that you and your terrorist friends have labelled Black leg and are constantly trying to kidnap and behead me and other proud Cameroonians from the NW/SW who do not agree with your stupid secessionist goals..

          Yes I be Abasakom man and klando di loin pass lain loba

          If you are not dumb/crazy explain how depriving your own children from education will help you achieve independence?


        • Kumkum Pass Garri

          @l’enemi lazy terrorist

          Why are you so dumb and stupid to assume that where I come from is important or relevant?

          What is important is where I am right now and where I am going to! Right now I am a world citizen living a fulfilled life. I will continue to create wealth for the foreseeable future.

          @lenemie Where are you right now and where at yo going to. We all know you are currently living a wretched life of misery. We also know that you are going to the Delusional Republic of Ambazombies , a place that has never existed and will never exist. Tis means you are delusional and insane!

          You keep looking at where you coe from because that is the only thing you can be proud of. You are ashamed of your present circumstances!

          Lazy Nyamfukah whose strongest point is to say “your lass”.

          You are extremely delusional and tupid.

          Case # 5:18-cv-07721 DOE et Al v Tapang has not been dimissed. Google the case number and see for yourself. YOU BIG FAT LIAR!

          How can you claim that a case that is set for hearing on June 19, 2019 ha been thrown out of court before the hearing date?

          Crazy l’enemie you are a BIG FAT LIAR! LIAR LIAR PANTS ON FIRE!

          L’enemie you are so dumb that you do not even know that anyone with internet can access the court docket sheet for this case. shame on you! Nyamfukah!

          “MOTION to Dismiss filed by Ivo Tanku Tapang. Motion Hearing set for 6/19/2019 01:00 PM in San Jose, Courtroom 5, 4th Floor before Judge Nathanael M. Cousins. Responses due by 5/20/2019. Replies due by 5/28/2019.(Edmondson, Joseph)”

  7. The Cameroun Gov has been burning homes & villages in Ambazonia. Today they burnt down SONARA thinking it was a refugee camp..

    • Kumkum Pass Garri

      @Biko the dumb ambafool terrorist

      You ambazombie leadership claim that they are responsible for the fire. Instead of congratulating your leadership for the excellent job they claim they just did you try to take away their glory by claiming that the refinery was burnt down by the government. How stupid do you have to be? Are you crazy? If Tapang Ivo and Capo Daniel (Ngong Dog Emmanuel), Joshua Carr hear you trying to take away their glory they will treat you like a black leg.

      The amba leaders in the diaspora create fake stories and celebrate as success. Their only success to date is the never-ending lies! Delusional Nyamfukahse!

      Why are you ambafools so dumb and stupid? Why do you ambafools think that depriving your own children from education is the first step towards independence?

  8. Les forces de défense et de sécurité du Cameroun ont incendié des maisons et des magasins en AMBAZONIE. Nous avons la liste de ce qu’ils font en plus de leurs actes barbares.

    Ils pillent, ils brûlent, ils tuent, ils mangent des chiens,
    Pour se faire passer pour des Ambazoniens.
    Ils s’habillent en clochards dans les rues et cachent des armes.
    Ils infiltrent pour écouter ce qui se dit.
    Les fonctionnaires vivent dans le chantage permanent
    Ils volent les pc, les téléphones et tout ce qu’ils trouvent.

    LA RIPOUBLIQUE thief our ressources, buy weapons with the money then come and kill us with the weapons from the money of our ressources way dem thiefam.La Ripoublique Voleur. Assassin. Bandit. NoBoDy can Accept slavery.

  9. Une fois de plus, Biya vient d’être battu à son propre jeu.

    Il crée un contre-mouvement avec la complicité de quelques personnes pour saboter la révolution de l’Ambazonie.
    De faux Amba boys qui tuent, violent et terrorisent les populations ainsi pour créer le KO et amener les populations à rejeter la révolution, mais manque de chance, toutes les familles ont l’un des leurs tué par les militaires et ces militaires ne sont pas les bienvenus.(Gagner le coeur des populations = Échec). Voyant que la stratégie ne marche pas, il essaye de saboter avec l’achat de quelques guerriers pour semer le KO chez les combattants de la liberté.

    Ambazonia has digital addicts for the sake of the revolution and they are out to decrypt and expllicit everything to the world.
