ACCDF OFFICIAL COMMUNIQUE ON THE POLICE KILLING OF A CAMEROONIAN IN LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA.

March 4th, 2015 by bobebill

We learned with great sadness that the victim of the latest brutality from the gun of an LADP (Los Angeles Police Department) police officer is our very own Cameroonian brother, whose life’s circumstances and stresses little known to us, rendered homeless. It is during moments like this that our existence and resolve as a vibrant diaspora community is put to test.

As we work at gathering further information and confirmations on the identity and circumstances of our fallen brother, I am calling on all members of our Cameroonian community to pull together in providing necessary community support to the memory and final dignity to our fallen brother and to put pressure on the authorities to make sure justice is served for this unfortunate situation.

We thank all the Cameroonian brothers and sisters who have in different forms shown some level of solidarity in expressing shock and outrage following this nature of death of one of theirs. We appreciate the efforts of Lady Kate of Miss Africa for her efforts in corresponding with the folks in LA to bring us updates on this issue. The ACCDF will work with Lady Kate and other community organizations and personalities to come up with acceptable, collective and effective ways of dealing with this situation as a united Cameroonian community.

We are also comforted by the awareness that we have a well-organized and supportive Cameroonian community that has projected throughout the years the spirit of unity and community. We will contact the President of the Cameroon Group, USA, Dr. John Chato and the Secretary, Mr. John Asombang, to come up with ways of collaborating and working together in the face of this new challenge and how to help avoid similar situations in the future as we continue our quest towards building a united and vibrant Cameroonian diaspora community in the USA. We also recognize and appreciate the continuous community building spirit of one of the founding fathers of Cameroon Group, USA, Dr. Mal Fobi.

We express the strongest condemnation of this senseless killing of a Cameroonian. Let us pull together to seek honor and justice.

Richard G. Mbakop
Executive Director, ACCDF
