Keep us updated on this young woman, we look forward to more of her writing. I thoroughly enjoyed the piece on witchcraft, I saw a lot of parallels with practices in my own country, Zambia, as well as other parts of Southern Africa. Hopefully some comparative studies on this and many other aspects of our shared Bantu culture are in the offing!

Martin Jumbam

Bakwerirama, lucky are you who count among your lot the likes of Iya Rosemary, Dibussi, Emil, Simon et al!!! "Iya" sounds like the Bakweri version of the Lamnso "Yaah", meaning "Queen". If that is what it stands for, then that title couldn't have been sitting on a more deserving head!!

I am a student of the university of Buea reading Women And Gender Studies.
I wish to know why there is no article talking about the status of Bakweri women.Is it that the women are completely comfortable with the way the tradition views them? Is the custom not creating setbacks which causes a barrrier to the development and progress of the bakweri woman? Why are the women themselves completely silent?



It's a great pleasure to write to you.I'm a doctoral student in anthropology at the yaounde I University.I don't know how to express my joy , I have just discovered your site. The thing that make me so happy is that my predoctoral dissertation topic( called in french DEA) concern the Bakweri people.The topic is "Albino in cameroonian cultural particularism : bamileke and Bakweri experiences" I was suffring from a lack of documents and my only source of data was thefield work which I make few monts ago in certain Bakweri villages. i thank you a lot for what you're doing and I beg those of you who are inspired about my topic to write to me Thank you a lot.
Best wishes

Charmaine manga Williams Nokuri nee Duke

Hello Ma'am,
I would like to be a contributing editor to bakweri.com. I graduated from The Univeristy of Virginia, with a degree in African History. By using my knowledge of linguistics I was able to trace the ancestors of Manga Williams and former D.O. Christopher R. Nokuri. I believe that we must put foolish alliances behind us and be true Bakwaris and reclaim our history. If necessary I will forward you my senior thesis or you can read my blog. Thanks for your time and here is a picture of my father-in-law, Christopher Robert Nokuri.


I was very impressed to see all you have written about the bakwerei people dating back to the early days, great job. Do you plan to write any recent infor, especially related to the bakweries of the inner land to say and you are such a beautiful woman. Thanks Mbua - U.S.A.

Simon, are you sure you are man enough for this powerful, opinionated lady? Perhaps you should visit her personal blog at www.ekosso.com and make that judgement.


S N Ngomba

Great pleasure finding this site. It has strengthened my knowkedge on the traditions of the Bakweri people. I am currently writing a book, partly fiction and non-fiction, and found the sight very enlightening. Maybe you would be interested in editing or even publishing the book.


Excellent profile! We need more of such Bakweri ladies.Nice site.

Intend working with editors on touristic ventures/destinations as an online magazine.Are there any chances obtaining relevant solutions or partnership?
Yours sincerely,

Mola Thomas ndive Mokake

Congratulations to the Editors of Bakwerirama. Your efforts need to connect with a similar working group in Fako that will publish hard copies as well as mobilise support to revive the Mopke culture and traditional heritage. We also need to organise a forum for the diaspora to mobilise resources needed to hire a reputable consultant to publish a Bakweri language book and Dictionary for people to be able to speak and write Bakweri within three to six months. I am willing to make a donation. You have made the Mopke proud!TNM.
