Mr Bessong was a great man. His passing however does not excuse anyone from providing News. You would think that Cameroon comprises only of the University of Buea..there is an election happening soon, the Head of state and his fey men are busy robbing us of our democracy while our Fons and Chiefs sell us down the river and abuse our human rights for the scraps off the Bullu and Bassa mans table..All you can go on about is this man...He is dead! we know this. Give us some news. You have neglected your Blog for a week now!

You may want to know that BB was a regular contributor to The Post in the 1990s. He had a regular column on their newspaper. A very interesting column I might say. So he was not only a lecturer in the University of Buea.

I do not work or speak for the editorial board of The Post. But if they have decided to pay special tribute to someone who has been one of them, we should respect that. BB`s death deserve a national day of mourning especially for Southern Cameroonians.

He was not just a lecturer. He was a freedom fighter, he dedicated all his life to expose the problems that existed in his society. He was one of the first to stand against this blood tasty regime in the 1980s.He paid dearly for that. He has been in prison in Yaounde at least once. His salary has been interrupted many times. He died in the war-front, fighting for the justice. He deserve everything we got.


I have always been amazed how some people take a free service for granted and transform a privilege into a right.

So the site hasn't been updated for a week? Could it be that The Post is having technical or other difficulties posting stories? Could it be that there is a problem with the webmaster? Could it be that The Post has run into financial difficulties and has problems paying for the upkeep of the site? Or could it be that they are really in mourning? Of course, we don't care what the answer is. All we want is our "Free stuff".

Typical Cameroonian underserved sense of entitlement which is what has destroyed our country...

"As soon as Bate Besong's death became public, there was an outpouring of grief both on his website and that of The Post."

We did expressed our grief from the heart but
Some condolence messages from this forum was supposed to be published in this special edition also.


As someone who went to school with Mr. Bate's kids, I am truly saddened by this.I never met him but most of my friends in SASSE had. We talked about him everyday, his bravery, his intellect, his beaming personality.My teacher was obsessed with his work. It all feels like a nigthmare and i keep hoping i will wake up and realize it was all a dream.
