Between 1904-1909, there were waves of migrations of Namibians

  • What if we come back to the motivations behind this German repression?
  • According to your works, we would find the Namibians, at least their descendants or offsprings in Douala, Dschang and even in Buea. An idea of ​​specific neighborhoods or localities?
  • According to the German system, after the 22 Namibians returned, they had to return to work in the camps, so as to complete their missions.
  • We were also talking about Cameroonians who were deported to Togo, Namibia, etc. Do we have any idea of ​​their strains?
  • We are experiencing the same difficulties at the human level with Namibia. Why aren’t we talking about the Cameroonian genocide as well?
  • Germany executed several chiefs including Duala Manga-Bell. Is it to say that the Cameroonian resistance was not?
