Njoh Litumbe:A pen is mightier than a gun

Just two million signatures are needed for Southern Cameroons to gain independence, says Mola Njoh Litumbe, veteran Anglophone independence activist.

According to Njoh Litumbe, their journey to the UN is yielding fruits as they have been asked to provide “just two million signatures of Southern Cameroonians” in support of their independence from La Republique for the UN to dance to the music.

Mola Njoh recounted that when he went to the UN and narrated the independence issue, as he has often done, he was asked whether it is because he has not been made a minister that he is complaining.

“Everyone else in Cameroon is happy, we have no news,” Mola Njoh said he was told.

“Do you want us to start killing ourselves before you come?” Litumbe said he retorted, and “that’s how the idea of a signature referendum came about.”

Litumbe said he was asked to provide two million signatures of Southern Cameroonians and the rest will be done.

“Locally, we have started,” Litumbe said, adding, “You don’t need to march or hold a meeting and be arrested. The pen is mightier than the sword. I wouldn’t tolerate you going to the bush to fight.”

After sitting through a court session in Buea on Thursday, August 25, Litumbe said La Republique has tended to divide the people of Southern Cameroons in order to rule them.

He showed pressmen the sheets on which signatures are to be collected as well as those already signed by die-heart Ambazonians.

Litumbe said he is part of the fourteen Southern Cameroonian activists detained at Buea Central Prison.

“I am part of those accused because I believe in the same principles as they do,” Litumbe said as he listened to his fourteen comrades being arraigned for what was termed as holding an unauthorised meeting in a restaurant in Buea recently.

To him, the relationship between the two Cameroons is illegal because there has never been a legal union between the duo.

“I have been saying all along that we never really joined La Republique….they just came to colonise us the night the British Army left at midnight on 30th of September 1961 and disregarded the fact that the UN had on 21st of April passed a resolution granting Southern Cameroons independence as from 1st of October 1961,” Litumbe said.
