Reminiscences on THE DYNASTIC HISTORY OF NDOM MWASUNDEM, Cameroon by S. N. Ejedepang-Koge


About the Author

Samuel Ngome Ejedepang-Koge loves his village Ndom very dearly. As such, he has fond memories of his childhood in the village. For three years, he served as President of his age group or set, The Star of Peace (Tintine a Nsang). Very close to his father, a man who was much steeped in the culture of his people, his father took him along to various meetings. Thus, from early in his childhood, young S. N. Ejedepang-Koge continually drew from this rich source until the death of his father in 1979. In this Way, he got acquainted with the administration of the village. In 1958, at the age of twenty he rallied his village friends to try to resolve peacefully the attempted secession of the so-called Essossong Ndom Two, which was provoked by the seduction of the wife of a villager by a royal. Because the village trusts him as a credible and honest broker, it submitted to his reconciliation efforts when in 2005, youths, elders and the Chief were logged in a long drawn quarrel. This is the history of the village as he heard and as he is living it. He is happily retired in Yaounde.
