First off, those so called reunification monuments are very ugly, and really repulsive in their state of decay. Their ugliness is indicative of the malformed being created by the unnatural union of Southern Cameroons and la republique du Cameroun. Their state of neglect is very telling. La republique francais du Cameroun under its present plunderer in chief was in such a hurry to obliterate the identity of the Southern Cameroons that one of its spiritual acts was to neglect the symbols and monuments that indicate that two countries came together. The destruction of the Mungo bridge between Tiko and Douala is a sign that the union has already ended in spirit and it will only be a matter of time for the rupture to manifest concretely.

I submit, subject to debate in a calm and sober-minded atmosphere, that the current experiment in nation-building has failed. I further submit that the pain of frustration, anger, poverty and deprivation is not only felt by those now officially known as north-westerners and south-westerners of Cameroon. The overwhelming majority of Cameroonians now yearn for change - actually for a comprehensive overhaul - of those laws and other provisions that govern our existence as a people and as a nation.
We are proud of our country and the blessings that the Lord has showered on it in terms of physical and natural resources. However, we are now held hostage by a corrupt few sustained by military force and by a foreign government or governments which clearly do not have the interest of cameroonians and their country at heart despite their pronouncements to the contrary.Our people, most of them unarmed, have been slaughtered in their quest for a better life. Our desire to be masters of our own destiny has been thwarted by a yaounde-based clique, aided by a self-seeking coterie of sycophants in the rest of the country whose unavowed aim is not only to serve the interests of their foreign masters but also to maintain the masses in a permanent state of bondage and subjugation. Time must come as it inevitably will when these shackles will be untied. My prayer is that the Good Lord will spare me a few more years to be witness to the liberation of our people.

Did you know that the fuel tanker was transporting fuel from the Littoral Province to the South West Province? Fuel refined in Victoria, South West, transported and stored in SCDP in Douala and later on re-transported to the South West across the re-unification bridge; and there was this divine intervention on July 1, 2004, “the reunification bridge collapsed after the fuel tanker hit the railings and exploded”


Cameroon: Reunification monument under rehabilitation

The Yaounde City Council wants to restore the dignity of the Reunification Monument.

The Reunification Monument which is located in the Ngoa-Ekelle neighbourhood reminds many Cameroonians of the 1st October 1961, when both the erstwhile French and British Cameroons came together to become one country. But a lot exists in this monument that can build a library for future generations to come, reason why the Yaounde City Council, under the supervision of the Government Delegate, Tsimi Evouna has embarked on a series of work to give the monument a new facelift.

According to Dieudonne Manga, chief of works at the construction site, there will be a massive planting of flowers to make the surroundings of the monument agreeable. Some of the flowers will be planted following arithmetical shapes. The flower beds will take star, circle, oval and triangular forms. That's not all. Sixteen public benches have already been put in place to receive visitors at the site.

Among the eight poles existing at the reunification premises, only two of them carry the Cameroonian national Flag. Consequently after rehabilitation, all poles will carry the Cameroon flag. The monument will be adorned with lights around it. The fence will also witness some rehabilitation work. At the exterior of the monument, a rectangle of 16 metres by 1.40 metres and the word "Reunification" written on the lawn with the use of flowers.

The rehabilitation work, which will cost the Yaounde City Council a sum of CFA 15 million. According to Arnauld Phillipe Ndzana, Director of Technical Services at the Yaounde City Council, the rehabilitation work is destined to end in two months. In his objective of rendering the city of Yaounde more beautiful, the Government Delegate, Tsimi Evouna, took up the initiative to give the monument which has been long abandoned, a new facelift that will draw in Cameroonians as well as tourists to the rich historical monument.
