CAMEROON 1. Brief History of Cameroon Once upon a time, a sailor called Hanno, while going from coast to coast; he arrived at an unknown destination which he found very special. After spending some time at the coast, he heard a strange sound like water boiling in a pot. It was an intense eruption decided to name this place “Le Char des Dieux” which is now called Mount Cameroon. In 1472, some years later, Fernando Po a Portuguese sailor stopped by that coast. This time he discovered a lot of crayfish and he named that place “Rio dos Camaroes”, meaning “River of Prawns” and from which the name “Cameroon” was founded, to describe our humble nation. In 1884, the Douala chiefs signed a treaty with Germans and it became a German colony, but during the First World War, when the Germans withdrew from the war, Cameroon was divided between France and Britain making Cameroon both a French and English colony. In 1958, the French colony became autonomous and gained its independence on the 1st of January 1960, under the leadership of H.E (His Excellency) Ahmadou Ahidjo (Cameroon’s first president).On the other hand the English colony gained its independence on the 1st of October 1961. The two colonies became united after a referendum on the 20th of May 1972. This united Cameroon was still under the leadership of H.E Ahmadou Ahidjo, who latter gave up his presidential sit on the 6th of November 1982 H.E Paul BIYA. Cameroon, this year celebrated its 50th anniversary of Independence, like many other African Countries. Others national days are l: Unification day: 20th May Youth day:11th February Labour day: 1st may The motto is: Peace-Work-Fatherland The currency is FCFA
