Cameroon: Strength in Diversity

Africavox published [fr] a dossier on the differences between  the 250 ethnic groups in Cameroon. It states that  “mixed marriages, cultural adaptation to their neighbors’ practices and a relative appeasement of the political climate have led to greater tolerance and understanding among Cameroonians.  While ethnic diversity is now widely seen as a national asset,  ethnic differences were utilized in the recent past to divide the country for political gains.”
