The people of the Wimbum tribe, Donga Mantung division of the the North West region resident in Bamenda under the canopy of the Wimbum Cultural and Development Association(WICUDA) say even in death, they shall remain as one.
They took the commitment on Sunday 1st August 2021 during a come-together at the open air arena of Blue Pearl hotel Bamenda.
Christened “nderlah”, the come together was to feast and brainstorm on the way forward for Wimbum people in Bamenda in particular and Cameroon in general and brought together all thirty three villages that make up the Wimbum tribe.
According to the Bamenda branch President of WICUDA, Mr Njeba Festus Wawa, it was a moment not only to demonstrate unity but to share progressive ideas.
“We came here to commune, to think, look together, eat, drink and share ideas that can move Wimbum people ahead”
“We are more united than what people think. Development starts with unity. We have achieved the first goal which is unity and development can now follow”, he added.
Attended by four Fons from the Wimbum land and the National president of WICUDA, Mr Shey Henry, the event saw the raising of funds for two projects already at hand; the purchase of a bus to assist in transportation of corpses to the village in times of need and the reconstruction of the Wimbum Cultural and Development Association’s hall in Bamenda.
Henceforth, the event will be annual following an announcement made by WICUDA president for Bamenda.
