I am not a poetry fan perhaps because those obscure poems by Chaucer and the other dead British guys force-fed to us in secondary school were so far removed from my African reality... However I am going to give No Turning Back one a shot thanks to this excellent review.

I have a feeling that multi-partism was ushered in by Yondo Mandengue Black, and not quite by JFN, as stated by Mola Dibussi.Maybe JFN popularised it.

Hello Meoto,

I believe this is really a question of semantics.The multiparty debate began with the Yondo affair, but it can technically be argued that multipartysm - the existence of more than one party - began with the SDF's creation and registration as a political party, all of which happened even before the begining of the Yondo trial or even before the Anti-Multiparty marches of 1990, and its launching in May of that year...

Either way the Yondo affair (which involved 2 SDF founding fathers) is intricately intertwined with the birth of the SDF...

BTW, the review is written by Dr. Joyce Ashutantang and not by Tande...

Meoto

Hi Ngu, thanks much for the correction. Actually the first registered opposition party was SDF.

I have never stopped wondering why Yondo Black went into oblivion soon after... Together with JFN they would have formed a formidable force.
