What is an anglophone grievance?
Even with an independent Ambazonia, anglophones are underestimating internal problems facing them and paying less focus on the reality. We are either ignorant of facts against us or just too blind to accept that we have an internal problem that is worse than the presumptive problem you are fighting against.
Four years of violence has created an open learning opportunity for educators and wilful learners to see that all what forms the backbone to this struggle is embedded within us and in some cases worse than what you see in the central government. Hence, how will an independent nation address such problems that it existence should not be spoken out? Delusional society is a doom nation.
It has been proven that the violence is being instigated by the diaspora who are not willing to even return home to aide the building of the zone to provide the necessary jobs many are seeking. They have no plans to return home reasons often cited include, the country is not good for them. If the bridge is not good, who do they expect to fix it to their standard? Who do they want to build the country for them to come and enjoy only?
There are problems in Cameroon affecting all Cameroonians in different dimension but to mention an anglophone problem is just a political motivated issue by some desperate for power. This has no relationship to people’s personal problems like unemployment. For an Amba nation to work in the perspective portrayed by leaders with the promises they are making, only a communist style system can be in place. This in theory or in practice is already at odds with a capitalist world hence your struggle is a total waste of resources that could be better used to enhance the private sector.
All what we claim to be problems facing anglophone can all fall under one umbrella, bad governance that can be seen all over Cameroon and has already wrecked the struggle.
Let use focus on the reality. The public sector accounts for around 20% national employment even in developed countries. 75% percent is private sector. 5% are people born never to work.( Addiction group who source of income is begging on the street for find their addiction)
Now, let us focus on the statistics: anglophone is just a terminology wrongly used to identify people just like Bamilikis but for the sake of this article let us used such terminology to add knowledge to our understanding of reality. What ever an anglophone perceived is marginalisation is equally seen across the Bamiliki community.
Looking at the Bamiliki region, despise the odds they have something to show for. They are in control of the economy, the are pushing harder in creativity and building of industries to boost the regional ability. They are at the forefront of building bigger and better hospital and education centres to add knowledge that is vital in accelerating growth. They are offering privately funded scholarships to their young talents and exploring betters ways to work together for the benefit of the zone.
What of the people of the NW and SW? Our own education that we are so proud off is teaching us to be dependent on the state. Where does such ideology exist in the open world today?
Despite the odds, the Bamiliki just like Biafrans are self creating jobs in the private sector focusing on what will aide their own communities contrary to the anglophone zone that is doing nothing but believing it is the duty of the central government. That believe has no practical background in any capitalist society except in the communist ideologist of the 1950s that failed so many nations.
Look across the NW and SW regions, the biggest employers are the Bamilikis who are facing the same problems you claimed are affecting your development. Why just you and not them?
Going to the diaspora abroad, current statistics are showing that 1:100 diaspora of the Anglophone background is willing to return home and aide in the development of the very country they are criticising compare to 60:100 of the Bamiliki background. What does this tell you in practical terms?
It simple means go back to the drawing board and fight your internal fragmented problem.
The earlier you stop fighting an illusion and focus on the practical reality the better. All those young boys fighting are hoping for jobs in the public sector hence what of the 75% left out? Almost all those boys might be the 5% mentioned above, if necessary steps are not taken now.
