African Revolutionary Council
The African Revolutionary Council is a Pan-African Movement founded in 2017 by Nkwenkam-Momekam Tite while in detention at the Yaounde Central Prison. Nkwenkam-Momekam Tite who was 19 years old then was arrested in January 28th 2017 in connection to his involvement in the anglophone crisis that has been rocking the country since 2016The Anglophone Crisis in Cameroon and was transferred to the Yaounde Central Prison. It was in detention that he discovered how unjust the system was with the mass incarcerations with no trial, the corruption that was reigning in the midst of the prison system and the Judicial System of Cameroon, the police brutality on citizens. He came into contact with the teahings of Muammar Gaddafi in his book The Green Book that spoke about giving back power to the people, read about the lives of Thomas Sankara thus began writing the vision of the African Revolutionary Council. Shortly after his release, he went to exile and started the movement in Kampala with the vision of rallying people to the cause of fighting Imperialism in Africa. By then the movement never had a logo nor a name. It was in an open vision that he saw the the map of Africa, a torch inside and two swords crossed under it and a voice told him to use the logo, call it the African Revolutionary Council.
