I feel very sad to hear the death of this famous writer. I remember with a lot of nostalgia his much acclaimed book "the white man of God" which i studied in secondary school(GBHS Bamenda).Infact the memories of Tansa as he struggles to understand the complexities of Christianity, especially the concept of a God,heaven and hell, comes flodding as i write this homage to somebody who greatly contributed to my literary upbringing.
Kenjo you are gone but your spirit lives on in your literary work, may the Lord God grant you eternal peace.

Ali Buba

Mr. Kenjo was a great teacher. He was our literature teacher in Mbengwi in the 1980s. Also he used to give us ride to go to Mankon. I can picture him driving his VW rabbit. One of the best teachers ever taught me. May his soul rest in peace.

Kenjo Jumbam's passing away is a great lost. The White man of God is the best cameroonian novel I've read to date. I was so fond of it in secondary school... Lucy you let a white man into your jerusalem, but you don't want to let me in...
Let him rest!

Dear Amusa, accept my condolence.Your late Dad was a remarkable luarate,a selfless contributor to general education in Cameroon.

MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PEACE. hE KNEW THIS WHITE PEOPLE

Atabong Christian

A great man has gone to sleep. Kenjo Jumbam's contribution to African literature is enormous. A light hearted writer who often uses a light hearted manner in satirising the whiteman's use of christianity as a tool for brian-watching and exploiting Africa. The bible infront and the gun behind. The whiteman's egoistic nature is reflected in the conflict between big father and small father in the White man of God. The struggle for Africa. Lucy refuses her jerusalem from tansa but gave it to the whiteman. Yes our African leaders deprives us from what belongs to us but carry our money to save it in european banks. The whiteman of God is more than just a literature book. pa rest in peace

Eric Tangumonkem

It is sad for us all. Peace to your family and al love ones. Your book the white man of God made me thinking and I still do.

Ambe Johnson

Great Eulogy by Dr. Abunaw. that said, there is an error that has crept into her narration on the history of Anglophone Cameroon literature. She writes: "Although a francophone Cameroonian by geographic origin, Mbella Sone Dipoko studied in English and wrote his novels originally in English."
Correction: Mbella Sone Dipoko is indeed an Anglophone by geographic origin and ethnicity. He is a native of Misaka village in Tiko sub division where, like his father before him, he is the current Chief. A few years ago, he was the mayor of Tiko town.

I believe Dr. Abunaw's confusion stems from the fact that Dipoko is of the Mongo ethnic group, the bulk of whose members are in the French speaking littoral province. What most people don't know is that Fako division is not just the home of the Bakweri but also of the Mongo who occupy the West bank of the River Mungo.

Another facinating facet of Cameroon's colonial history...
