Cameroon: Documentary on the Bakweri-German Wars

A new documentary on the history of the Bakweri people of Cameroon has been released: “…“Kuva Likenye” is a 30 minute documentary that profiles the heroic exploits of a mountain King called Kuva Likenye who mobilised an ill-trained ragtag army to stand up in arms against German exploitation of the Bakweri people culminating in the Bakweri-German wars of 1891 and 1894.”
