Uncle, i can imagine how you felt when you were called only to be told that another arm had been broken form your body.Kenjo-wan jumbam was and is still a father to all of us.His HUMILITY is what has taught the thousands who have known him, what life means.SOMANY HAVE LEARNED FROM HIM AND MANY WILL STILL BE LREANING FROM HIS WORKS..HAVE COURAGE

Being an avid reader, I first read this book, believe it or not at the tender age of 10. My younger brother( 8 years of age at the time)and I would sit down everyday after dinner and read it for hours untill after a few daunting weeks, we completed the novel.

I found the novel really intruiging as could relate in many ways to the narratives as presented by Mr Jumbam. At the time, my family lived in Ndu, part of the Wimbum clan which is very much culturally similar to the Banso due to thier proximity. Also, we were raised Catholic and just like young Tansa, I was a catechument at the time and was also perplexed by the complex and simingly contraictory nature of God as taught by my faith.

To this day, I think Mr Jumbam's work is an amazing piece of literature and deeply explores the clash of cultures which affected not only the grassfield peoples of Cameroon during the colonial era, but always has and continues to play an important role in our interractions with our felow human beings.

Thank you! Being an avid reader, I first read this book, believe it or not at the tender age of 10.

The White Man of God continues to keep Baa Jumbam alive! in the post-colonial literary perspective, this novel is typical example of a work that seeks to redefine and valorise the cultures of the "Others" and to provincialise Europe and all her ways as a collectivity.

SAMUEL  DEKARKEH

The novel "White Man of God" is one of the most important work in African literature for me, compare only to Chinua Achebe's "Things Fall Apart". This work explores the religious and cultural confusion that many Africans are faced with even in this post-colonial era. Do we accept and follow the cultural and religious heritage of our forefathers or do we abandon it and follow those of the white man?
This book affects me personally because when my father,an established polygamist with three wives, accepted Christianity he was forced to abandon my mother and another wife. But, although he abandoned her (us) publicly to please the people of his new faith, he always came to see us (her) privately behind the white men. I am angry with my father for abandoning my mother for some kind of faith and with my mother for accepting him whenever he comes to her secretly.
The most emotional, yet immensely entertaining point of the story is the unmasking of Shigwala and " Big Fadda" big surprise. I think Joshua,the leading convert and secret Shigwala, my father, and most African men are coward for trying to please the white man publicly while still holding on to their African traditions, thus putting the lives of future generation in serious conflicts.

Prof. Dr. Charles Ngiewih Teke

The Whiteman of God is a seminal novel in the African literary landscape. When one reads this complex novel and appropriates it with the criticism of leading African and postcolonial intellectuals such as Chinua Achebe,Ngugi wa Thiongo'o, Abiola Irele, Paulin Hountondji, Kwame Gyekye, B. A. Ogot, Gayatri Spivak, Edward Said and Homi Bhabha,its aesthetic and ideological fertility is undoubtedly immense. It superbly addresses an enigmatic question; cultural encounters which in a so called era of globalisation and cultural intelligence, is still to find satisfactory answers. The novel is at the same time a prototype of the African experience particularly south of the Sahara, and a subtle expression of what it means to be colonised and subjectified. It deserves more continental and international attention.

fekemeThis novel is a hight of honesty that faces the Africans. When I read this book in secondary school, I read to pass exams, but now I see the true meaning of it

Right now it appears like Wordpress is the best blogging platform out there right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

Superb blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any recommendations? Thank you!

My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
