La traite, au cameroun comme dans toute l'Afrique, apparait dans l'ensemble, sous le meme visage.

"CRIME de l'homme contre l'homme, les coupables sont autant de l'interieur - les Rois et Chefs Africains, que de l'exterieur - negriers Arabes et Europeens"
--- (E. Mveng).

Le scandale de l'esclavage fut donc stoppe parce que l'Europe finit par prendre conscience de son iniquite et de sa sauvagerie. Les negriers europeens qui persitaient dans leur commerce furent severement reprimes, leur 'cargaisons' saisies et rapatriees sur les terres d'Afrique et le commerce d'ebene europeen s'arreta en un laps de temps finalement assez court si l'on a conscience des moyens de diffusion de l'information a l'epoque.

"En moins de trente ans, plus de quatre siecles de Traite devinrent honteux: On pendait aux vergues les contrevenants" --- (S. Drescher).

A) Cameroon's Chiefs/Kings/and other rulers of centuries ago:
- Eagerly practiced enslavement and raided other Cameroonian tribal settlements to capture slaves.

- Willingly, joyfully, and gainfully captured, enslaved and/or sold their fellow Cameroonians to their Arabian and European collaborators.

"African rulers, along with their Arabian and European collaborators, of centuries ago engaged in the world biggest pillaging of human resources through capturing, enslaving, and selling other Africans to slavery" ---(Axelle Kabou).

B) Today's Cameroonian leaders and the ruling classes are:
- Systematically pillaging the natural resources of that country and daily extorting the vulnerable and powerless masses.

Today's Cameroonian leaders and ruling classes ARE NO DIFFERENT In Contents Of Characters from the Cameroon's rulers (chiefs and so-called kings) and ruling classes of centuries ago.

"In Cameroon, the Government of Paul Biya (The Gangster-In-Chief), government employees in all government agencies, and anyone with an official designation have seized and monopolized both political and economic power to advance their own selfish and criminal interests, not to develop the country economy.

Their over-arching obsession is to extort the masses, pillage the country resources, and amass personal wealth, gaudily displayed in flashy automobiles, fabulous mansions and a bevy of fawning women. Helping the poor, promoting economic growth or improving the standard of living of their people is anathema to the ruling elites.

'Food for the people!'
'People`s power!'
'Houses for the masses!'

are simply empty slogans that are designed to fool and extort money from the people, and defraud the international community including the likes of the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The Government in Cameroon is a 'Giant Organized-Crime Bazaar' and its President-for-life, Paul Biya, is the Gansgster-In-Chief"
---(Severin Tchonkeu)

Beyond any shadow of a doubt, Had England and Europe not decided to end the slave trade, It will still be rolling today. Cameroonian Chiefs and Traders would have happily continued to capture and sell their own human kinds for bottles of "Coca Cola" as long as there were demands for slaves.

As the profound backwardness of these Chiefs and kings had no boundary, how many souls would they have been eager to trade for a McDonald "Hamburger" ?

It Is a Frightening and Disturbing Thought.


Jonathan Derrick reveals the following about him:

A native of Cameroon, the now-deceased (according to my source) Doctor Engelbert Mveng was a historian, author, artist and Catholic priest.

- Reverend Father Mveng was an accomplished and world-reknown scholar.

- Was born on May 9, 1930 in Enam-Ngal, in the Ntem Division of Cameroon.

-Attended mission and diocesan schools in Ebolowa and Yaounde between 1936 and 1948. Later on, he respectively attended attended and taught the seminary in Akono and Otele.

- Completed his training as a Jesuit novitiate in Congo-Kinshasa (formerly known as Congo-Belge, and Zaire. Now referred to as Republic Democratic of Congo) between 1951 and 1953. He then left for Europe in 1954 for studies in three (3) Licenses in Theology, Letters, Philosophy as well as a doctorate in philology from the University of Paris in 1964.

Once he returned to Cameroon in 1965, he lectured in the Department of History at the University of Yaounde and rose to the Head of Department level on several occasions.

He served as the country's Director of Cultural Affairs and won several prizes for his scholarly and artistic works. His various manuals and texts, such as "L'histoire du Cameroun" have been revised several times since 1963. The latest edition in the series on Cameroon history was published in 1984.

Jonathan Derrick is a journalist and historian specializing in West Arica. He taught at the University of Ilorin in Nigeria in the late 1970s. His book Africa's Slaves Today (a gold mine of information) was published in 1975. Among other works, Derrick contributed a chapter to Njeuma (ed), Introduction to the History of Cameroon (1989) book.
