Blessed Ngoe, NMSU master’s student and graduate teaching assistant, will give a lecture about Cameroon’s political system on March 1.

Blessed Ngoe is a master’s student and graduate teaching assistant. He is also a native Cameroonian and previously published “The Sinking Ship: A Critical Analysis of Multiculturalism in Postcolonial Cameroon” in October 2017.

According to the flyer promoting his talk, “Since November 2016, the Republic of Cameroon in West/Central Africa has witnessed one of the most tumultuous times in its history. People have been killed or lost their property due to President Paul Biya’s “35-year-old dictatorship and reign of terror.”

Ngoe’s research focuses on the “Anglophone Cameroon problem,” started by Cameroon’s colonization by the French, Germans, and British. Ngoe tries to find suggestions on how to “contain the growing humanitarian and political malaise” that is becoming catastrophic for Cameroon.

The talk is free and open to the public.
