If I say I understand this, I am probably less than honest. The main thrust of the argument is elusive and I am clueless which way to vote.

However, Mr. Ndifor, it is always a pleasure to read your thought-provoking pieces. You surely keep the mind alert and working, which is good for the rest of the body.

Let me ask this in relation to some portions of the above write up. Should we reject an entire forest of good willl simply because of a few rotten trees? If the answer is yes, then there is logic in turning our backs to West Cameroon since some of today''s corrupt leaders turn out to be Anglophones. But if the answer is no, then surely the system can be redeemed by appropriate internal sanitation by well chosen policies.

It is regrettable that most of today's young people spend a disproportionate amount of energy demonizing the Fonchas, Endeleys, Munas etc for dragging West Camerooonians into a wedlock that has turned sour. In all fairness to those wonderful gentlemen, we ought also to mention that the population voted (democraticall!) for reunification with French-speaking Cameroon based on first hand experience of cohabitation with the Nigerians who shared the lives at that time. Cameroonians were not particularly enamored of Nigerians, let alone their monstous population. It is therefore dishonest to pretend that Foncha or Muna or any of those leaders blindfolded them into the present union.

The unfortunate situation we live today can be compared to a marriage that did not work out well. Some couples stoically sacrifice to make it work for the sake of the children. Others go for straight divorce. Whichever option is chosen, there is work to be done. Fence sitting and expecting miracles can never bring about the cherished nirvania. Enjoying the trappings of one system by day and returning to the other by night is also very dishonest. It is like professed gays (homosexuals) who fight to be recognized as such but secretly or overtly return to heterosexual lifestyles when it suits them. Such ambivalence kills a people's dream...... Happy reading.

wang la

Endeley, Muna Foncha and a cream of all these 1961 politicians all betrayed the Anglophones.... history doesnt lie bros

BAH ACHO

"If I say I understand this, I am probably less than honest. The main thrust of the argument is elusive and I am clueless which way to vote"

Wow! Isn't that smart? I've noticed that each time someone of the Anglophone extraction say something stupid about Francophones, everyone, including Anglophones, completely understand the meaning, but once an anglophone critizes his or her fellow people as Mr. Ndifor did above, an anglophone rushes in to say...."The main thrust of the argument is elusive and I am clueless which way to vote" Woh!
Thanks writer for making Anglophone "clueless" as to which way to vote. The writer beckons to us all anglophones to reexamine ourselves in the mirror.
