These are some of the pillars of a once remarkably dependent system of jurisprudence that has been allowed to rot.

Sweet

Funny, these two old boys look like they are about to pull their blades for some sword play.

I ask why it is important where Inglis was born, and even needs to be mentioned. He has spent almost 2/3rds of his life in Buea. I wished we would be more enlightened about these things. It will solve a lot of problems.

@ Flashman,

I don`t think there is any malice intended. The detail only makes his life-story more interesting. In the light of the current crave for "bushfalling" it is interesting to know there was a time when Cameroon was considered a viable option to build a destiny.

Walani

Flashman, everything is so taboo in Cameroon that even someone's place of birth is out of bounds, right? So Americans should not know for example that Obama had a Kenyan father, that former governor schwarzenegger was born in Germany, that French president Sarkozy is of Hungarian descent, etc., etc., And we wonder why Biya wants everything about his regime to be taboo...

Justice Inglis's story is as fascinating as that of the Lebanese Fayez Olabi, the Iranian Froogi and a bunch of other folks who took up Cameroonian nationality. If you can't see that, then you understand why we don't know our history and can therefore not plan for our future...

flashman

@Walani and Limbekid, good points.

There is tendency to see someone for the first time and to ask "na which contri yi bi?" People want to place you in a tribal or ethnic box as a first reaction. There are people who were born in Buea. All their friends grew up in Buea. Their parents were born in Buea as were their grandparents but people still want to classify them by ancestral villages which they have probably never visited or never been there for more than a week. I think that is plain wrong. I am just using Buea as an example. You could use any town for the example. The despicable cam no go phenomenon comes from this tendency.

John Dinga

And yet the richest cultures draw from all over, cross-pollinate and dominate us! Makes me sick.
