Massacre of Akwaya: perpetrators of the crime should be brought to justice—Alice Sadio

The socio-political situation is tense in Cameroon

• It gives way to inhuman massacres

• Like that of Akwaya for which justice is demanded

Cameroon is marred by violence, especially in the North-West and South-West (Noso) regions where English-speaking separatists are willing to kill to make their voices heard. Added to these, there is the Islamic sect Boko Haram which is also rampant.

On Saturday June 25, 2022, the whole country woke up to the bad news that an inter-community conflict led to the massacre of more than thirty people in Akwaya. It is a commune of Cameroon located in the South West region and the Manyu department, near the border with Nigeria.

Causes

A press release was issued immediately after. In this, the moderator of the Cameroonian Presbyterian Church (EPC) in the South West, Fonki Samuel Forba gave the causes of this massacre: “It all started as a land dispute between the Oliti people and the Messaga Ekol people of Akwaya. The Oliti people attacked and killed Messaga Ekol people in their farms on April 29, 2022 and the Messaga Ekol people retaliated,” the quoted person began.

The man of God continued that “the Oliti people then mobilized and obtained the reinforcement of committed armed men and launched a very violent, inhuman and destructive attack against the Messaga Ekol people. The attacks led to house burnings in which some people were burned in their homes. More than thirty (30) people were killed including children, girls, men, women and old people. Some were beheaded. About five (05) Nigerians were killed in this attack”.

Justice

This is what politician Alice Sadio is asking for on her Facebook page: “The perpetrators of the Akwaya massacre must be unmasked by an independent investigation and severely punished. Cameroonians, let us be indignant! “.

‘There is prisoner and prisoner’: Mebe Ngo’o has his cushy behavior justified in court

Alain Edgar Mebe Ngo’o knows how to get people talking about him. The former Cameroonian Minister of Defense is in prison for corruption and embezzlement. During a court hearing, the man was seen with a glass of champagne in his hand, which ignited the web because the situation was downright out of the ordinary.

Images of Minister Alain Edgar Mebe Ngo’o confusing the court in his living room have also reached Cameroonian politician Alice Sadio. For the latter, “there is prisoner and prisoner. As my little brother Boris Bertolt would say, so goes the Republic,” wrote on his Facebook page.

In form, it’s the same thing but the substance has a more meaningful meaning. In reality, Alice Sadio chose identical words (prisoners and prisoners) to explain that there are prisoners who cannot afford certain behaviors of other prisoners, in other words, not all prisoners are treated the same way.
