Happy reunification day !

On May 20, 1972, the Federal Republic of Cameroon became the United Republic of Cameroon. Following a referendum, the english speaking part and the francophone one unified in the same unitary State. 
As some express a slight inclination towards secessionism (fr), I highly recommend the reading of this post (fr) by Cameroonian blogger Jasemene Emene Mpacko: it reminds us that despite the difficulties that may sometimes face 200 "ethnic groups" in living together,
  The Cameroonian is a strength that ignores itself, a neglected potential, he/she cultivates futile divisions, but he/she is also a free spirit, a soul of warrior, a heart of gold.
Happy reunification day to all my sisters and brothers of the "Little Africa":-) !

  1. A belated thank you! I find it interesting that you call it reunification day because most Cameroonians and non-Cameroonians think it is the independence day which is on January 1st (which in fact is the day it was proclaimed, not the day it was granted). Thank you! Blessings for this new year!
