Double Whammy – More Anglophone Cameroon Children Now “FRANCOPHONIZED” and BILINGUAL
Amba “Shit-No-Wipe-Lass” (“SNWL”) terrorists and ambafools like Eric Tataw, Ikome Sako, native doctor Ayaba Cho, Ngwese Ivo Melle, Ebong Kingsley, Smeagol Akwanga, and many other deplorables who thought they could use school boycott in the North West and South West Regions of Cameroon as leverage, to garner international sympathy and support, instead got rejected with disdain. They have been rejected in the most scornful way, absolutely humiliated, and thoroughly despised everywhere. That is why morons like Eric Tataw (who encouraged the chopping off hands of children as young as 5 years who attended school), Mark Bareta, are now begging for schools to resume in NWR and SWR (https://www.facebook.com/DDRCameroon/videos/1230100840698801/). Their ill-fated school boycott stratagem has become an eternal albatross around their necks. The school children who have had 4 years stolen from them (by hypocrites whose children and wives have been going to school in the USA, the UK, Canada, etc.) WILL NEVER FORGIVE AND FORGET THIS MORTAL SIN COMMITTED AGAINST THEM. THERE WILL BE A DAY OF RECKONING FOR THEM AND THEIR FAMILIES! Why did the diaspora ambazonia leaders, their spouses, and their children not withdraw from schools abroad? So, what has the school boycott achieved?
The singular achievement is that Anglophone and Francophone Cameroonians are now JOINED AT THE HIP – INSEPARABLE. ONE AND INDIVISIBLE CAMEROON (UN ET INDIVISIBLE CAMEROUN)!
An unintended consequence of the ill-conceived and ill-fated school boycott in the North West and South West Regions of Cameroon is that an entire generation of Anglophone Cameroonian students and pupils have been “Francophonized” and have become more bilingual (English and French). Also, in all probability, are now fluent in Franglais. And why and how has a generation of Anglophone Cameroonian children become “Francophonized” and bilingual?
The moneyed (the rich), salaried workers, the well to do, etc. either relocated to or sent their children to schools in the French-speaking Regions of Cameroon. Four years is a long time to acquire a new language and be proficient or fluent in it. I remember when I was in High School, those students who planned to study in Germany, Italy, etc. where the medium of instruction was not English language, had to attend a language school for just one year. One year sufficed for them to acquire the requisite language proficiency to be able to understand and follow lectures in the language. And our students and children have been learning and using the French language now for four years, nay, they are fluent in the French language. So, the so-called ambazonia struggle has shot itself in the foot.
Given that most of our children now have the requisite proficiency to be able to pursue their studies in schools where the medium of instruction is either French or English, or both, Francophone teachers can now teach in schools in the North West & South West regions of Cameroon. This is what the ill-conceived and ill-fated school boycott, at the behest of the so-called “ambazonian leadership” in the diaspora, in the North West and South West Regions of Cameroon has brought upon us and it is sad.
SCHOOLS MUST RESUME COME OCTOBER 2020. Only education can transform a savage for the best, and that is why people of all stripes (white, black, brown, red, etc.) pursue education with all vigour. “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15). I remember the first time I sat in my office (in Europe) and a white janitor popped in to empty my wastepaper bin and to clean my office. A white person cleaning a black person’s office! And who could have thought of that during colonial times (when blacks were always servants to the whites)? Without a good education, which started in Cameroon and ended in Europe, I would not have been treated as “royalty”.
