I want to lay my hands on these.

Professor Dr. Alain Dipoko.

This is one of the few sensible articles ever written on this forum. While as a student at the University of Yaounde in the early 1980s, I had the opportunity to meet with this icon. Eventhough I was struggling with my English, he so passionately listened to me with a lot of patience and he selflessly fetched for me some copies of his magasine ABBIA, I so desperately needed.

Like most great figures, history and the younger generations have not fully appreciated this man. If Cameroonians of the French expression were allowed to select those anglophones to give special attention, one of them would certainly be this man. As all humans though, he made some mistakes during his political career, but who are we to judge fellow men?

I was extremely furious when one social misfit who repairs radios in Denmark (Ras Tuge), but who dons the elusive title of engineer, write so disparagingly about this pillar of Cameroon culture. Professor, Fonlon, immensely diminished my suspicions about anglophones.

Before meeting him, I used to reason like most of my less informed compatriots east of the Mungo that all anglophones were mean spirited people imbued with greed and a drive to make a fortune where they did not sow. All that changed thanks to Dr. Fonlon.

My library is richly decorated with his publications. Once more, thanks to this author who paid him so rich a tribute.

Va Boy

Like most frogs, you did not read the Fonlon articles. Southern Cameroonians did and still did stupid things. You frogs did not read, and went ahead to botch the union with the wrong headed attempt to colonize the Southern Cameroons.
