By Eric Tataw – Friday April 12, 2019.
A Kenyan heavyweight Lawyer who served as the Director of Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission from September 2010 to August 2011 has reacted to the creation of the Southern Cameroon Liberation Council known by the abbreviation; SCLC.
Prof Patrick Loch Otieno Lumumba fondly called PLO Lumumba a Pan-African Human Rights crusader who holds a PhD in Law from the University of Ghent in Belgium has commented on the creation of the SCLC.
During a 2-day working conference in Maryland, USA, from Friday March 29, 2019 to Saturday March 30, 2019, dubbed The All Southern Cameroons People’s Conference – ASCPC, the SCLC was created.
The assembly that brought together all stakeholders of a Revolution spreading across the English-speaking regions of the North West and South West of Cameroon kicked off Friday March 29, and ended Saturday March 30, 2019, at 4095 Powder Mill Road, Beltsville, Maryland, USA with the creation of the Council.
Prof Lumumba while talking to National Telegraph by phone from his base in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi early Wednesday April 10, 2019 said the creation of the SCLC is the best thing that ever happened to the oppressed people of Southern Cameroons.
National Telegraph also gathered that the Professor would arrive the United States on Saturday April 27, 2019 in Dallas, Texas where he would hold an event before moving to Columbus, Ohio on Sunday April 28, 2019 to meet with the Southern Cameroons community, including some members of the SCLC.
In October of 2016, mere grievances of the teachers and lawyers were poorly handled by the government, turning it into a demand by majority of Anglophones for a separate state called Ambazonia with several gun battles between government soldiers and Anglophone militias.
In the Diaspora, the leaders have been largely divided which has gone a long way to stagnant the Revolution. The meeting creating the SCLC must be commended by all and sundry especially as it promotes Unity of Purpose, said PLO Lumumba.
