THE MYTH OF MAPOUT
by Felix Mbog-Len Mapout

Femmes, entièrement femmes

SUMMARY

The myth of Mapout is the example of a family that is reconciled with the story of a father, Mapout, who was a resistance fighter as Nyobe Um, Moumie Ouandié, Afana, Kingué and many others.

Marked by the hand of the former colonial metropolis, the official history of Cameroon has maintained the mystery and propagated false prejudices against the guerrillas, those resistant to the war of independence of the 50s and 60s, nationalist heroes of the first Cameroonian party, the Union of the Populations of Cameroon.
