nterim President of Ambazonia Sisiku Tabe Makes Strongest Ever Call for Leaders of the Revolution to

By Anny Funke | November 22, 2017 President of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia, Sisiku Ayuk Tabe The Interim President of the Federal Republic of Ambazonia, Sisiku Ayuk Tabe, has made a strong call to all frontline leaders of the revolution to stand up as one force. He sent out the message in London where he was attending a political summit organized by the London Metropolitan University. Sisiku was emphatic that whoever will ignore this call and try to work in isolation will be rejected by the people whom he invited to continue to be resilient in all efforts to keep the struggle for the total restoration Ambazonia going. He assured them that he and his team are at work round the clock with strategic actions that will pave the way for eventual victory. Having restored the statehood of Ambazonia last October, 1, Sisiku Tabe said now is the time to build the nation. This will be reinforced by operations of members of the interim government body that he is currently trying to put together. He said this has to be meticulously done, in order to meet the expectations of the eight million Ambazonians waiting. Building the nation also means defending it from foreign aggressors like La Republique du Cameoun whose military are all over the Northern and Southern zones, terrorizing the peaceful people of Ambaland. President Sisiku was emphatic that the population has to be more united now than ever to rise up and fight back these enemies when attacked. Self-defense against any attackers especially these military men, who keep killing, maiming and extorting should be applied. Their atrocities which are over a year now, reached peak level last September 22 and on October 1, when Ambazonians went out in thousands to celebrate the restoration of their statehood. Since then the killings have kept going on till today, with over 100 Ambazonians reported massacred. Following acts of self-defense, within the past week five four gendarmes and a police officer from La Republique were shot dead in Ambaland. Over 20 000 Ambazonians terrorized by this colonial master in Mamfe, have fled to Cross River state in Nigeria where they are sheltered as refugees. The United Nations High Commission for Refugees says the number will be rising to about 40 000.

Grace and Robert Mugabe 'to remain in Zimbabwe' under government deal

By Roland Oliphant | 22 November 2017 Robert Mugabe and his family are set to remain in Zimbabwe under a deal with the ruling party that will see them retreat from politics in exchange for secure retirement, diplomatic and political sources in Harare said. Mr Mugabe, 93, resigned on Tuesday following a military coup and an outpouring of public anger at economic mismanagement, corruption, and political violence during his nearly four decades of rule. During celebrations in Harare following his resignation on Tuesday night, one man told The Telegraph he would like to see the former president "in leg irons". But in a possible indication of plans to rehabilitate the ousted president, posters were put up in Harare on Wednesday with the slogan "let Mugabe rest now". "President Mugabe is now a private citizen. Let’s let him enjoy a private life," said Nick Mangwana, the head of the Zanu-PF branch in London. "For the 1st time in history, Zimbabwe has a former leader. We don’t know how to treat such," he added on Twitter. Mr Mugabe and his family may also be allowed to retain control of their assets, including the "Blue Roof", the vast luxury Harare mansion where Mr Mugabe and Grace Mugabe, the former first lady, spent the past week under house arrest. It is unclear whether there would be any investigation into how Mrs Mugabe amassed wealth including what is believed to be the largest land and real estate portfolio owned by anyone in Zimbabwean history. Welshman Ncube, a barrister, constitutional lawyer, and long time opposition leader said: "Mugabe is a complex character. He would have told the military, 'make me a martyr but I am going nowhere'. Given the vitriol and hatred towards Grace Mugabe, I suspect she will move in and out but spend more time out of Zimbabwe. He added: "Remember however much we want a new Zimbabwe, Mnangagwa was, from the beginning, an enforcer for Mugabe, as were the generals. I would so like to be wrong, but this is not about a new Zimbabwe, it is still about Zanu-PF which has always been a party of coercion.” Other allies of Mrs Mugabe from the G40, the faction of Zanu-PF that supported her, may not be so lucky. Phelekezela Mphoko, Zimbabwe's second vice president who was in Japan at the time of the coup, is believed to have flown to Zambia. Savior Kasukawere, a local government minister, and Jonathan Moyo, the tertiary education minister, are understood to have fled to South Africa. Mr Moyo said on Twitter earlier this week that about 50 other senior Zanu-PF figures had also left the country. Human rights groups have expressed concern about the whereabouts of Ignatius Chombo, the finance minister, who has not been seen since the night of the coup on November 14. It emerged on Wednesday that Mr Mugabe himself turned down an offer of asylum from neighbouring Zambia at the height of the coup. “I had talked to him that if the chips are down you can come here but he refused saying that his home was Zimbabwe and he will remain there,” Edgar Lungu, the president of Zambia, told local media. Profile | Grace Mugabe Credit: AP First Lady of Zimbabwe Born: 21 July 1965 (age 52) Assumed office:17 August 1996 Political party:Zanu-PF Born in Benoni, South Africa, Grace Mugabe was first secretary to the President Mugabe, before becoming his mistress and eventually rising to become Zimbabwe’s First Lady in 1996. Many recall the opulent affair in a ceremony dubbed the “Wedding of the Century” by national press. Given the nickname “Gucci Grace” by Zimbabweans for her extravagant shopping trips, she has been a polarising figure in a country besieged with poverty. Despite this, she has long had the support of younger politicians in the country’s political hierarchy. Most recently, she had manoeuvred herself politically to succeed her husband as the next president – a succession strongly opposed by senior ranks in the military.
