December 23, 2011: KABINDA WINS FIRST ROUND IN BILLION DOLLAR OIL CASE

Banjul, The Gambia — In a long awaited ruling, the African Commission for Human & Peoples' Rights (ACHPR), an organ of the African Union, ruled in favor of the Front for the Liberation of the State of Cabinda (FLEC) and against Angola and has agreed to hear on its merits a case regarding the disposition of resources in one of Africa's richest but strife torn regions. Cabinda exclave's offshore oil fields are among the world's richest while its onshore resources, remain largely undeveloped due to the conflict between Angola and FLEC. Cabinda has asked the African Union's Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights to appoint a Special Rapporteur and lend its good offices towards settling the dispute. Angola has not contested the ACHPR jurisdiction.

Cabinda also known as Republic of Kabinda is the former Portuguese Congo was forcibly occupied by Angolan forces in 1975. In one of the longest running conflicts in Africa, FLEC forces have been battling the Angolan army since 1975. The conflict has see-sawed back and forth for over 35 years with neither party able to oust the other. The long simmering dispute made headlines last year when each side accused the other of a fatal attack on the Togolese football team bus en route to the African Cup of Nations.

FLEC leadership has sought a non violent resolution to the conflict and has repeatedly called for an internationally monitored referendum on the status of Cabinda. FLEC's leadership has promised to take all legal measures to defend the economic patrimony of Cabinda. Angola routinely siphons off the vast majority of oil proceeds and returns only a small percentage to Cabinda which suffers from one of Africa's highest rates of unemployment and poverty. Numerous human rights violations have been documented by the UN and Human Rights Watch.

According to Jonathan Levy, FLEC's attorney who filed the ACHPR case in 2006: "It has been said there are times when every one of us must make a stand for human rights and justice, or you never feel clean again; Cabinda today resembles the worst excesses of old fashioned colonialism."

PROCLAMATION ON THE EVENT OF SOUTH SUDAN'S TOTAL INDEPENDENCE!

July 9, 2011 — The Organization of African States extends it congratulations to the Government and People of the Republic of South Sudan on this momentous day of total independence. South Sudan is an inspiration and shining star of self determination to all the peoples of Africa.

Today all eyes are on Juba where the miracle of independence is occurring. The people of South Sudan have suffered greatly and their struggle for nationhood has been long and hard.

All the peoples of emerging African states salute our South Sudan brothers and sisters in solidarity; your dream of nationhood has been realized while ours is ongoing. South Sudan is an inspiration to all Africans and is an example of what fine deeds may be accomplished through sacrifice, determination, and leadership.

Yours in solidarity,

Ebenezer Derek Mbongo Akwanga, Jr.

A Call for Urgent Action — June 24, 2011

Paul is currently facing charges of treason which carry a potential death threat from the corrupt Zimbabwe regime. Zimbabwe is a regime which has no morals or shame, it will not think twice about committing murder, genocide, theft, and assassination to preserve the status quo.

He is under strict and inhuman bail conditions that restrict his movement to 40kms from the Bulawayo Post Office, he reports to the police 3 times a week, and he is banned from attending political gathering. Agents of the Mugabe regime have him under constant surveillance.

His health is suffering and it is very possible he may have poisoned while in jail recently. WRITE, CALL, EMAIL — Contact everyone and all international organizations about Paul Siwela, a true African leader. Do not let Mugabe and his ilk claim yet another victim.



AKWANGA V. CAMEROON

In a unanimous decision published on 12 May 2011 the Human Rights Committee (HRC) in Geneva upheld the petition brought by REDRESS on behalf of Ebenezer Derek Mbongo Akwanga against Cameroon. The petition averred multiple breaches of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) over the period 1997 to 2003.

AKWANGA V. CAMEROON
Secessionist movement woos MLF

KHANYILE MLOTSHWA | HARARE — Mar 24 2011 09:20

Bulawayo-based pressure-group-cum political party Mthwakazi Liberation Front (MLF) has been invited to join the Organisation for Emerging African States (OEAS), a Pan-African body that advocates separation of states. MLF, whose leaders are currently in prison remand prison on treason charges, is calling for the secession of Matabeleland into a separate state to resolve reported marginalisation of the region. Ebenezer Derek Mbongo Akwanga, secretary-general of OEAS, recently wrote to MLF leaders urging them to join the regional board. Part of the letter reads: "This train (secessionist trend in Africa) that is gradually getting ready to leave the station will not be stopped by any might unless it reaches its eventual destination — unconditional self-determination for our people. "It's time we spoke for ourselves. I look forward to a new partnership of equality and undivided loyalty as we move forward as a people."

Akwanga, who is also the founder and chairman of the Southern Cameroon Youth League (SCYL), a secessionist movement in the south of Cameroon, condemned the arrest and continued detention of MLF leaders Paul Siwela, John Gazi and Charles Thomas. He said they would soon engage President Robert Mugabe over the "marginalisation" of Ndebele people. OEAS, which has over 25 "entities and exile governments" designated as emerging African states, aims to annul geo-political borders created during the colonial era in Africa. "The colonial-era borders of Africa must be shattered as an artificial construct of the 20th century." "Just as the USSR dissolved, so too will the status quo in Africa, which is propped up by economic and geopolitical interest inimical to the aspiration of Africans," Akwanga said.



March 23, 2011 — The OEAS is pleased to announce the Biafra Government in Exile (BGIE) has joined Cabinda and Southern Cameroons as a charter member of the OEAS with its acceptance of the Declaration of Washington. Long live independent Biafra!



March 23, 2001 — The OEAS condemns the recent extrajudicial assasinations of Maurício Lubota Sabata Chief of Staff of Cabinda's FLEC/FAC and Gabriel Nhemba "Pirilampo" operational commander of FLEC/FAC and Cabinda's Minister of Defense. Both were murdered this month by the Angolan secret police in Pointe Noire, Congo. The OEAS expresses it condolences to the Republic of Cabinda for this loss.
