BaretaNews can now report that the UN Secretary General Representative (SRSG)for central Africa visited Cameroon as a result of the ongoing Anglophone crisis. This is arguably the first time the Anglophone crisis has caught the eyes of the UN in a more detailed manner. However, the impression of BaretaNews is that the UN is still to voice out the rights note in regards to this crisis.
The UN top official for central Africa in a Press conference today called for the release of all Southern Cameroonians arrested and for the restoration of the internet. He also appreciated government for the steps taken to redress this crisis. You now understand the diplomacy here from the UN. We need to strike the right notes.
BaretaNews can also report that the visit of the UN Secretary-General for central Africa is as a result of allegations that the international community is shying away from the crisis in the Anglophone Regions as reported by Maurice Kamto.
BaretaNews also took notice that the UN official met with Barrister Ben Muna and some lawyers for the Defense yesterday and also had a detailed meeting with the President of the Consortium Barrister Agbor Balla at the principale prison in kondengui.
We are told Consortium President briefed the UN delegation on the current situation concerning the West Cameroon crisis. The SRSG also met with the minister of Justice, foreign affairs, SG at the Presidency, British High Commissioner, Canadian High Cmmisioner, French and US Ambassadors in working visits concerning these issues.
Le.Représentant Spécial du Secrétaire Général de l’#ONU M.François Fall est en visite au Cameroun depuis le 9 avril. En fin de visite il s’est entretenu ce jour avec les medias au sujet de la crise dans les régions du Nord Ouest et du Sud Ouest, objet de sa visite. Il encourage le gouvernement camerounais à accélérer la mise en oeuvre de ses résolutions, pour le retour à la vie normale dans ces deux régions.
During the long awaited and very heated press conference held this evening (April 12, 2017) in the Nations Capital, Yaounde, Mr. FRACOIS LOUNCENY FALL, the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary General on his second visit to Cameroon in under two months, made some VERY STRONG STATEMENTS IN VERY BLUNT TERMS.
HE DEMANDED NOT ONLY THE RELEASE OF ‘ANGLOPHONES’ DETAINED ON ACCOUNT OF THE ONGOING CRISIS, BUT EQUALLY THE RESTORATION OF INTERNET SERVICES IN BOTH ANGLOPHONE REGIONS AND FOR GENUINE DAILOGUE TO RESUME, AS A WAY FORWARD IN SOLVING THE CURRENT WAHALA. FOR A DIPLOMATE OF THE HIGHEST ORDER, HIS PRONOUNCEMENTS WERE ”TOO” BLUNT.
Before then, he had VISITED Mr. AGBOR BALLA, President of the banned Consortium on Tuesday April 11, 2017 at Kondengui, during which they had some very fruitful exchanges (which I would not disclose here). It is equally rumoured by some voices that a possible meeting with Justice Ayah Paul Abine MAY occur if possible in the coming hours (I WILL GIVE YOU DETAILS ON THAT IF/WHEN IT OCCURS).
IT WAS A VERY ENRICHING AND INTENSE ENCOUNTER WITH THE SPECIAL UNO ENVOY.

Dr Balla is President of the Consortium in jail
We are seeing pictures of Consortium President in jail. In his small tiny room. The first thing which occurred to me after seeing these picture was rage. I was filled with so much rage and I can only imagine what could be happening to hundred others in there. If you feel bitter as me, let us transform this rage and bitterness to fight for the struggle, to defend homeland and to ensure that we use all means available to free homeland.
