Mola Njoh Litumbe died without seeing the restoration of the independence of Southern Cameroon he stood for.
Pro Southern Cameroons independence advocate Mola Njoh Litumbe has died.
He died in a hospital in Douala on May 26, 2020 after an illness, according to family members.
His death was announce by Senator Mbella Moki Charles on his Facebook page. “Mola Njoh quits the stage… A great family man is no more. My last church service with cousin Mola Njoh Litumbe in Douala a few months ago. We shall miss you. RIP,” the senator wrote.
Mola Njoh will be remembered for advocating for the rights of Anglophones in Cameroon, and the restoration of the independence of Southern Cameroons.
For this, he suffered two “house arrests” from the government authorities on the eve of October 1, a day “recognized” as the independence day of Southern Cameroon.
On February 17, 2014, he was a speaker at a colloquium held as part of activities to commemorate Cameroon’s 50th anniversary of reunification. The colloquium had as theme “From Reunification to Integration.”
He used the opportunity to school his audience including the Prime Minister and Head of Government about the state of Southern Cameroon.
He made it clear to them that “there is no documentary evidence at the United Nations Organization(UNO) as required, that Southern Cameroons and La Republique du Cameroun legally yoked together to become one country – Cameroon.” A union Mola Njoh Litumbe humorously referred to as “njumba marriage”.
Mola Njoh Litumbe on May 28, 2011 granted a press audience in Buea where he presented his book titled “Case of the Annexation of the UN British Administered Territory of Southern Cameroons.”
In the book he also revealed a “Critical review of the Formation and Dissolution of the State of the Federal Republic of Cameroon”.
“Southern Cameroons has never got independence from Britain. We merely changed our slave master from Britain to la Republique du Cameroon.” “We have just been annexed. This is crime against humanity because colonialism is abolished”, Mola njoh Litumbe emphasized.
