Robert Jabea Kum Dibongue: A French Cameroonian in the Pan-Kamerun Movement

JL Nfi


The reunification of the two Cameroons was the main issue that the nationalists debated in the British Southern Cameroons after the Second World War. This article attempts an analysis of the central role played in this debate by Dibongue, a “settler” who migrated from French administered Cameroon. Based on data from both primary and secondary sources, the study reveals that the immigrants from French Cameroon and Dibongue in particular, pioneered, dominated and sustained the Pan-Kamerun Movement before the indigenous elite took over the leadership of the movement in the late 1950s.
