I had just returned home in late 2003, after a few years in the diaspora. Still trying to catch up with the unique fun I had missed while out of Cameroon, I was invited to a book launch.

B00K: 2003: Three Plays (The Achwiimgbe Trilogy) Yaounde: Editions CLE,

AUTHOR:Bate Besong

PLACE:Amphi 750 University of Buea

Dressed in the latest western-like suit, I answered present at the book launch,accompanied by my wife.
It was a successful event, chaired by the present Vice Chancellor of UB -then, a Deputy Vice Chancellor. Jacobs Bate Besongs's facial expression depicts a self actualised intellectual,yearning for more books to launched. BB was like 'a bride on her wedding day' during his book launch. He radiated happiness, joy and love for what he loved doing most. Three years after that memorable book launch , he 'moved on' immediately after another book launch

During the previous booklaunch, I could recognise every speaker, except one- Dr Hilarious Ngwa Ambe. His appearance on the launching stage could not be unnoticed. He was young and I really was wondering how this young man will be given a chance to address an occasion like 'a BB Book Launch' . Naturally, I never discount a man until he speaks. Dr Ambe's paper at that book launch was inspiring-A real intellectual piece. I had inquired about him, and was told he is a lecturer at UB in the same department as BB. I saw in him a shooting bud from the trunk of Dr BB.

On March 8, the trunk left with its bud.
May their 'moving on'(Gwangwa kwasen and Tabe Awoh inclusive) inflames that perpetual zeal to combat intellectual lukewarmness they fought against in their entire lives.

Amber I called Heven today asking if I could speak to you and Jesus told me that you,Dr. Charles Nama, Dr. John Ebanja, Eugene Nde Fru, Prof. Hansel Ndumbe Eyoh, Veronica Dicmu, Dr. Herbert Endeley, Dr. Njiki Bikoi,Tabe Awoh, Gwangwa'a and Dr Bate aka BB went out for Lunch and that y'all are doing great in your new home. W'll see y'all soon.Was nice to have known you and wish you all the best. I love y'all, and please always remember us in your prayers. Tell our father how we are being maltreated in Cameroon and that he should come quickly and rescure us. I so dearly miss you all and its just unacceptable to know that y'all are gone in less than two years.

May the gods of our land Bafut receive your soul in peace, we shall always pray for you Brother Ambe, same message goes to BB , Ngwangwa and the driver.Amen

I just want to say goodbye to my old friend Ambe. Hilarious and I met in then GSS (now GHS) Nyasoso. He was living with a relative of his at the Theological College campus, where my family also lived. In the afternoons, after returning from classes at GSS, we would play soccer at the presbyterian school football field in Nyasoso. In those days, boys liked to take nicknames of famous players. Ambe's nickname was Eboue (after Eboue Jean Daniel of the Indomitable lions). But even as teenagers playing soccer, Ambe's passion for communication was evident. He enjoyed doing commentaries even more than he enjoyed playing soccer. He had sections of Zachary Nkwo's commentaries memorized. His memory was flawless. His tongue was quick. Even my mother was amazed at this "small boy" who had such a gift for the english language. Oh Ambe loved the english language. He was not one of those students who was awed by the hard sciences and math. He was not one of those students who intially nursed dreams of doing science, only to give it up when he found it too difficult. From the beginning he was going to be a man of letters. Many years have passed since those days as young boys in the soccer field. And many rivers we both have crossed. But I am glad Ambe followed his dreams. I'm glad he succeeded marvelously. I regret that I will not meet him on this earth again. But I will never forget him. Goodbye Ambe. It was a pleasure to have known you.
