The South West region of Cameroon has regained its freedom, from the hostage it was taken, by politicians and pundits from the North West region of Cameroon. The South West region has its true leaders today, walking in the footsteps of Dr EML Endeley their political Godfather. Yes, small na sick, contrary to Foncha's mundane political anthem: small no be sick. A platoon of young politicians and intellectuals are re-designing the socioeconomic and political fate of the region. These think-thank are glad to be in background. They are not worried about the lost glory of not being in the limelight. For them, however, what is important is the outcome of the strategies they churn for their region to be an important broker in a strong and dynamic Cameroon.
These sons and daughters of Ephasa-moto the God-myth of the Mount Cameroon and Nyango na muna the Goddess of the sea are a blessing in disguise to the people of the resource rich Southwest region. They are the leaders the people of the South West have been waiting for! The output of their effort has reshaped the destiny of the region in the face of contemporary events.
