this is a clear case of african land being stolen by europeans of the past for which their present day descendants should by force ( and deemed necessary) be made to return those land or pay compensation... but how does one compensate for 400 + year of misery, discrimination and injustice... that is the question.

AM A JOURNALIST WORKING WITH RADIO BUDESLIGA IN GERMANY. I WANT TO TALK A LITTLE ABOUT THE BAKWERI LAND AFFAIRE AND THE LAND OWNERSHIP IN GENERAL ESPECIALLY AROUND THE BUEA BOKWANGO HERMISPHERE.I HAVE BEEN PREVILEDGE AND A WITNESS TO SOME CRUCIAL LAND PROBLEMS IN BOKWANGO VILLAGE WHERE THE TRADITIONAL RULERS HAVE ALL BEEN CORRUPTED WITH BRIBERYAND CORRUPTION.ESPECIALLY THE TRADITIONAL RULER OF BOKWANGO VILLAGE OF WHICH I WILL WITHHELD HIS NAME HAVE BEEN AN INSTRUMENT IN SOME OF THE LANDS IN THAT AREA GIVING THEM OUT TO NON INDIGENES INSTEAD OF INDIGENES.
IN A SEPERATE DEVELOPMENT, I BELIEVE THAT IS TIME FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO BE PAYING RENTS FOR THE LANDS TAKEN IN THE SOUTH WEST PROVINCE

What are the effects of the wholesale confiscation of native land by the Germans on the spatial development of towns like Limbe ,Tiko and Buea. Inorder words would the site, situation and spatial expansion of these towns been what it is today if the Germans did not confiscate native land. If not what would have been the most appropriate expansion pattern for these towns following a normal evolution?

The Bakweri lands issue in this article makes the case for the reparation of a colonial injustice. It is a compelling case which shows that colonial history and legacy must be examined with justice as the primary goal, having however in mind that the "Bakweri Lands Problem" is an archetypal portal to Cameroonian land issues, territorial administration, cultural policy and national security due to its domino effect. I have been brought to this website by a friend of mine whose book is about to be published on the privatization of the CDC. There is one information I would like to ask which he failed to provide. He informed of an agreement between Germans and Bakweris which stipulates the duration of land exploitation by German companies for a period of 60 years, but he did not succeed to tell me immediately the source of that information and the evidence of that agreement.

The story of the great land theft of the Bakweri People is a story of virtually all formerly colonized African people.
