Paid a visit on Tuesday, November 7th, to Marcel Amabo and Barrister Edwin Fongo who are currently detained at SED in Yaounde. Marcel, a dynamic and hardworking man who stands against injustice, his arrest has disrupted his wedding plans. Barrister Edwin, a Common Law Lawyer who attended all court sessions during my trial. We had a long talk, encouraging them to remain very strong in spirit as we work hard to advocate for their freedom.

On Thursday, November 9th, during a visit to the Judicial Police at Elig Essono where we have 11 of our people detained. I was heartbroken and sad to discover some who have been detained for 4 months without a single visitor, not charged and have no legal support. 

While encouraging Germaine Dzenjoh, Fri Cristabel and Tita Eric to stay resilient, I call on us all to remember we are one family, therefore we ought to locate our brothers and sisters and support them to the best of our abilities.

Germain is a Sakerrette who was arrested at her jobsite, a printing press in Limbe. She has a 3 year-old son, a poor and widowed mother and lost her father just a few months back. 

Fri Christabel is a fruit trader who was arrested on her way home from selling at the road side. She is a mother of twins, the children have been sent to be with her ailing mother in the village for now. Both women are main bread winners of their families and are the only 2 women locked at Elig Essono.

Professor Eric Tita who lectures at the University of Bamenda is currently suffering from problems with his sight as a result of detention for 4 months.

I spent Friday, November 10th with Mancho Bibixy, Terence Penn and our brothers in Kondengui Prison. Mancho and Penn are in high spirits in spite of their dire conditions in prison and the continued uncertainty around their trial. 

During this meeting, Mancho Bibixy repeatedly called for peace and unity amongst all Anglophones and appreciated efforts towards the release of all detainees as he wants to see everyone free.

This moment re-energised my spirit, emboldened my courage, empowered by determination and I promised them - WE WILL NOT REST TILL YOU ALL RETURN HOME FREE!
