Une Démocratie Africaine
Can we talk about democracy in an African kingdom where hereditary kings have succeeded one another since centuries? Is it possible to have a cohabitation between monarchy and democracy? Through a journey at Foumban, in the western region of Cameroon, Pierre Loti Simo explores the history of the kingdom of Bamoun, in order to discover the monarchial democracy. This journey reveals the most ancient and powerful kingdom of Cameroon, an old African tradition, which is completely ignored by the new generation.
