As Cameroonians prepare to celebrate 50 years of reunification sometime this year in Buea, it is time to tell exactly what the state of the union looks like. It is time to establish a balance sheet of Cameroon’s reunification; in all spheres, 52 years after. 52 years in a marriage is more than enough time to redefine the terms of the union and work out a fair system of resource allocation on equal terms.
Even though the reunification crusade was fuelled by true nationalism, it is regrettable that on the eve of its Golden Jubilee celebration, those aspirations have been hijacked by narrow-minded, egoistic and treacherous politicians. Anglophones are now left with feelings of repentance and regret.
