The Ambazonia Revolution and CameroUn’s Empty Treasury: CAF Must Begin Looking Elsewhere for AFCON 2019

In 2017, a survey carried out by one of La Republique du Cameroun’s tabloid ‘Le Quotidien de l’economie’ showed that the Cameroons’ economy, was losing billons due to the ongoing revolutionary conflict in Southern Cameroons/Ambazonia. An economist of LRC origin, Dieudonné Essomba, stated in the report that Southern Cameroons play a very strategic role in the colonial economy, and argued that the disruption of economic activities in Ambazonia through the ghost towns and boycotts could only lead to a bleak economic future for the colonial economy. Citing the Southern Zone of Ambazonia for instance, Essomba asserted that it is undoubtedly the most nutritive economic feeding bottle for LRC, considering its oil production activities, huge agro-industries like CDC and PAMOL, Timber exploitation, production of Cocoa beans and other big economic activities. The economic sabotage MUST now take centre stage.
