Imperialistic Politics in Cameroun

2008, author(s)-editor(s) Carlson Anyangwe

Resistance & the Inception of the Restoration of the Statehood of Southern Cameroons

It always comes as a surprise to many that the British-administered UN Trust Territory of the Southern Cameroons was not granted independence like other colonial territories but was allowed to fall prey to the territorial expansionism of the contiguous state of Cameroun Republic, a former French-administered UN Trust Territory granted independence on 1 January 1960. This book focuses on the unresolved Southern Cameroons colonial predicament, giving insightful accounts of how Cameroun Republic hijacked the Southern Cameroons and is holding its citizens under colonial bondage. The insights include details of the stratagems resorted to by Cameroun Republic to exact submission to its annexation of the Southern Cameroons and to conceal this crime from outside censure. These attempts have met and continue to meet with stiff resistance by the people of the Southern Cameroons. The book is a contribution to the loud and intense conversation on the inevitability of the restoration of the stolen statehood of the former British Southern Cameroons, the restitution of its occupied territory and the reassertion of the dignity and humanity of its people.
