Every citizen of southern cameroons
who go to work for french cameroun
govt. Is only making him/her
self an instrument of colonialism of french cameroun
upon his/her land and people.
every primary.secondary school thats funded and own by
french cameroun on s.cameroons territory is only
an institution of control.brainwashing and
mental subjugation.
power can only be taken back from a tyrant
by more power. Be it civil or by armmament.

dango tuman

utter rubbish. Which cameroon are you reffering to?
Obviously to you as your masters you served. There is
only one cameroun ie the republique du cameroun.

Nono there is the southern cameroons still under colonialism
by republique du cameroun. And the is the latter.
the joining by federation of two state
never happened. Since no treaty was signed and
the first french cameroun president moved in
his military prematuredly and
occupied our country.
ask yourself why would any one
want to move from freedom of an in
self governance to became a mere
entity of another country?

Dear Publisher,

We thank you and Langaa Publishers for continuing to share this unique Piece.

As you stated NN is the only one of the "Original 13" who left a Memoire".

When I found out about langaa's re-publishing of NN's Eye-Wittness Account (EWA), I was in the US, and there, I purchased 2 copies online via AMAZON.
Unfortunately, the quality of the Photographs in this "copy" are very poor.
The original cover photo, a historic family photograph of the petitioners of the 1961 Plebiscite, upon their return from the UN, had been replaced by a less meaningful photograph of the PM's Lodge.

Well, after discussing with the family we decided against any legal redress against Langaa, afterall, "knowledge is the universal property of mankind ": and yes, Langaa did the public a favour, as the book has been long out of print; although they did without ever contacting the MBILE family.

Infact the last copies before Langaa, were bought by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs; I am sorry to say, to this date, the paltry sum of 3.500.000 for 350 books at 10.000 fcfa each, has not yet been paid.

It would be a good thing for the original Manuscript to be published. We are working on that as a family.

Best regards

Dr Peter Mbile
