"Having failed his examinations at college, Medza returns to his village in the Southern Cameroons in some trepidation. But to his surprise he finds that as a scholar (even a failed one) his prestige is immense. A young woman has run off with a man from another tribe: so Medza is entrusted with the delicate task of retrieving her. When he reaches her village he has to wait for her return from another adventure, so he stays with his uncle, who passes him off as a prodigy of learning. Medza is entertained, loaded with gifts (most of which his uncle filches), consulted like an oracle, and even---much to his surprise---married. But his stay in Kala has to come to an end and he returns to his own part of the country only to find himself unable to come to terms with his family and their way of life."--Back cover

Klappentext: "Ich sagte nichts und sie lachte ganz leise. Ich spürte die kleinen Stöße ihres Lachens, als sie sagte:>Du bist mir vielleicht ein Priestersöhnchen! Wirst du dich wohl schämen? Ein hübscher netter junger Mann wie du spielt den Priester. Welch eine Idee!<" Ebenso ironisch wie anschaulich handelt Mongo Beti an der Gestalt des Ehrwürdigen Vaters Drumont ab, wie dieser armselige Christ von der Missionsstation Bomba in Kamerun seinen Leidensweg geht. Dabei spart der Autor weder drastischen Realismus noch sarkastische Kritik, um zu belegen, wie wenig erlöst und erlösend eine Missionsarbeit war, die ganz und gar bestimmt blieb durch europäische Weltanschauung

Chief! by Jean-Marie Téno( Visual )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in Bantu and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chief! is a documentary chronicle of the trials and tribulations of daily life under dictatorship. In December, 1997, I was witness to several troubling events in Cameroon: a child thief's near lynching by the angry mob in my village; my discovery during a wedding ceremony that, by law, the husband is ruler of the family; and a highly respected journalist's arrest and imprisonment without a trial for writing an article questioning the health of the president. These seemingly unrelated events were all linked to the generalized problem of the abuse of power in authoritarian society. Chief! brings these events together in a personal reflection on the current state of Cameroonian society with its hierarchies, inequalities, and lack of respect for human rights, all of which are the by-products of dictatorship
