The British Southern Cameroons nation.
A promise broken.
A promise postponed.
A promise to be fulfilled.

Thank you Scribbles!

Another historical masterpiece! I wish it had sound!!! In any case, can anyone tell us what exactly happened in May 1958 in Southern Cameroons? I know this video has a historical significance. Also, who is the white colonialist who forced Endeley to sit on such a low chair?

Emil I Mondoa

Endeley was quite a tall man, especially for his generation and would have dwarfed that Resident. The person who lived there was called a Resident, and the Governor was in Nigeria. I think he was a little man, and could not stand the thought of this African towering over him. Games that people play!

Ronald Hickman

When British Cameroons became an autominous region (1954)the resident was called the Commissioner.
