Fon Angwafo of Mankon tells visiting Prime Minister Bitter Truth of Dire Situation in Ambazonia


By Amba News 24 Correspondent

The First Vice President of Cameroun’s ruling political party Fon S N Angwafo 111 of Mankon has told the visiting Prime Minister of Cameroun Joseph Dion Ngute that times have changed in how the people want to be governed.

Fon Angwafo, a hitherto staunch supporter of the ruling CPDM political party spoke in his Mankon palace while receiving the Prime Minister of Cameroun who is on desperate mission to convince the population of Ambazonia to drop their weapons and claims for independence to facilitate a dialogue with the government of Yaounde.

Apparently surrounded by his kinsmen and subjects, Fon Angwafo 111 said a golf had developed between the ruling class and his people. He took the Prime Minister to task about the current human rights situation in the Ambazonia, whereby the government is using the military to brutalize and kill the people.

The Fon spoke on how the times have changed, and how his people have also changed. ‘I was appointed by my father to be the Fon, but I am not sure if I will be able to appoint my successor’, Fon Angwafo 111 said in a tone that defies the logic of his position as the next inline in the party only after President Paul Biya, the party chairman. The Fon spoke openly in front of TV cameras as a large population of his people watched keenly and intervened with applause each time the Fon made a bold statement in support of their plight in the context of the killings and grave human rights abuses by the soldiers of the government in the ongoing war between the forces of Cameroun, and the Ambazonian people.

As the Fon spoke, Prime Minister Dion Ngute who was surrounded by heavy military security personnel listened attentively. In his response, the Prime Minister who is a Chief himself said he had been sent by President Paul Biya to come a beg for calm, and that the government is ready for dialogue.

The Prime Minister who occasionally referred to President Paul Biya as ‘Papa’, thanked Fon Angwafo and said the Yaounde government counted on him to bring back calm in the region.
