MANYU People Refuse to Sing Cameroun's National Anthem at MAMFE Cultural Event

The latest news trending on social media is about the Manyu people Refusing to sing Cameroun’s National Anthem at Mamfe Cultural Event.

According to the news, the people of Manyu told the Divisional Officer and Mayor of Mamfe that they can’t sing a foreign anthem. It is also hinted that Senator Tabetando from Mamfe Central was disgraced at Tinto in Upper Bayang. To crown it all Senator Anja Simon was also chased out of Akwa in Akwaya. Read the copy below

Could the refusal to sing the Cameroun national anthem be one of the signs of the resistance that has already become a duty as echoed by SDF Member of Parliament Honourable Wirba Joseph?

Read the copy below as narrated from the source.


An impeachable source from Mamfe has just hinted me of some drama that took place in Manyu over the weekend. First, Manyu elites in Yaounde had refused to release their 53 million Francs pledge for the sponsoring of the December 2016 Manyu Cultural Festival, FESTAC … claiming that the people of Manyu were not ‘cooperating’ with government vis-a-vis the ongoing calls for a federation.

The president of FESTAC Mr. Besong Michael did what he could to garner support from home and abroad and FESTAC 2016 held from Tuesday to Thursday of last week. It is on record that the DO of Mamfe, the mayor, and their Etat Major stumbled the occasion uninvited where they pressed for the singing of the national anthem to kick off the occasion.

This met with stiff resistance from the people who unanimously rebutted that ‘they cannot sing the anthem of a foreign country’. Sources say an infuriated DO left in anger and rage swearing to ‘punish’ whoever! Whatever that means. Senator TABETANDO from Mamfe Central pushed through to Tinto town, Upper Bayang sub-division to organise a CPDM rally which failed and backfired.

A provocating turnout of fewer than 50 persons told him to his face to “GO DO THAT IN HIS SUB-DISVION AND LET HIS OWN PEOPLE LISTEN TO HIM”.

Senator ANJA Simon had his own dose of humiliation at AKWA village, AKWAYA sub-division. The villagers are reported to have warned him and threatened that if he were not their own son, he wouldn’t have left alive. They asked him to leave the village immediately to not provoke their wrath.

Senators ANJA and TABETANDO will be returning to their masters at Yaounde with their tails between their legs and dropped heads.
