about

A sinister form of oppression, linguistic oppression, is the key ingredient in this rich collection of poems written in both the English and the French languages. Highly charged with political overtones, this anthology awakens the conscience of a society in lethargy, one in which even those who lay claim to superiority display gross incompetence in the management of state and societal affairs. Vakunta raises a strong voice against the wanton abuse of the constitutional provision that protects the Cameroon's official bilingual policy. This collection makes a forceful case that official bilingualism is not a pipe-dream, but rather a powerful modus operandi with the potential to ease a myriad of socio-political bottlenecks. It is hoped that this bilingual anthology of poems would provide useful instructional material for educators and serve as an eye-opener to Cameroon's leadership and role-players.
