This learn of the politics of the politics of belonging captures the frequent disaffection with the sterile rhetoric of nation-building that has characterised a lot of post-colonial African politics. until eventually the liberation struggles of the Nineteen Nineties, dictatorship purely paid lip carrier to democracy with impunity, usually by way of silencing these seemed to threaten nationwide solidarity. given that then, contributors and teams have reactivated claims to rights and entitlements and nowhere extra so than in Cameroon. The booklet articulates the studies and predicaments of the country's Anglophone group trapped in a wedding of inconvenience pregnant with tensions and conflicts.

Example text

On the rare occasions when he openly expressed his views on the matter, he intimated that reunification would involve a gradual process and that it would not imply an annexation of the Southern Cameroons by the Republic of Cameroon. He also assured Southern Cameroonians that discussions about the issue of reunification would take place in an atmosphere of complete freedom and equality between representatives of the Republic of Cameroon and the Trust Territory of Southern Cameroons. When he finally entered into negotiations with Foncha, it soon became manifest that he strongly opposed Foncha’s proposal of a loose federation as being incompatible with the highly centralised constitution he advocated himself.

One hundred thousand copies of an official brochure, The Two Alternatives (Federation of Nigeria 1961), were printed and distributed as part of this campaign. It is, however, most unlikely 38 that in a society with a low literacy rate such as the Southern Cameroons, complex written explanations of constitutional guarantees had any significant impact. By all accounts it is evident that the various parties appeared to be more interested in the number of votes gained than in educating the people about the constitutional consequences of their choice.

41 The 1961 Foumban constitutional conference Following the United Nations General Assembly’s approval of 1 October 1961 as the date of termination of British trusteeship and reunification, very little time remained for the complex negotiations to establish a new constitution. It soon became evident that Foncha’s bargaining position during the negotiations had been seriously weakened by the lack of any substantial and meaningful British support. Since the Southern Cameroons had voted for union with the Republic of Cameroon against the British-preferred option of integration into Nigeria, Britain decided to play second fiddle in the postplebiscite discussions, being more anxious to quit the territory on 1 October 1961, the date prescribed by the United Nations, than to lead the Southern Cameroonian politicians through the intrigues and complexities of constitutionmaking.
