At the Mountains of Madness by H. Be the first to write a review.
Women's writing in Cameroon has so far been dominated by Francophone writers. The short stories in this collection represent the yearnings and vision of an Anglophone woman, who writes both as a Cameroonian and as a woman whose life has been shaped by the minority status her people occupy within the nation-state. The stories in Your Madness, Not Mine are about postcolonial Cameroon, but especially about Cameroonian women, who probe their day-to-day experiences of survival and empowerment as they deal with gender oppression: from patriarchal expectations to the malaise of maldevelopment, unemployment, and the attraction of the West for young Cameroonians.
Makuchi has given us powerful portraits of the people of postcolonial Africa in the so-called global village who too often go unseen and unheard. Skip to main content.

Is BH funded or getting weaponry, training, even recruits from abroad?
Northern Nigeria Militancy: Who and what are Boko Haram?
One can assume that links abroad have been sought, but BH is still short of weapons: it continues to use dangerous raids on police stations to acquire guns and ammunition. Furthermore, it is using explosives as never before but, it seems, in not very sophisticated devices: so someone has been learning new technologies somewhere. Access to the internet is easy, as much for BH as for anyone.
Is BH expanding its operations, is it membership growing? As suggested above, the current panic gives the impression that it is, and indeed that it might still grow even once the present military campaign against BH is over. As BH modifies its public position on a range of issues, so its wider public appeal will change. Has BH sent suicide-bombers against targets?
Or did the driver panic once near his target and set the bomb off before he could get out? Finally, how novel is BH? My answer is that as a radical group it is far from a new phenomenon. It is however modern. BH is not a movement of that calibre; and Nigeria has the resources and the skills to defeat it. But it will not be the last of such groups. One critical […]. I have no interest whatsoever in knowing who these people are, what twisted ideology informs their beliefs, or who funds them.
What interests me, however and it has become very clear , is that it enjoys the support of most muslims in northern Nigeria, at least insofar as the emirs and sultans speak for their people.
Therefore, the only question is why they are not allowed to exercise their human right to self-determination, which implies the right to live in a pseudo-theocratic, pre-medieval dystopia of their own conscious creation. Nigeria government should NOT over-react following the recent incident in Abuja…they need to have a cool head and open up a dialogue to engage with opposing groups by discussing their demands in a non-rhetorical manner and trying to understand the merits and background of their demands…if a tiny cultural group does not want to be part of the Western ideals then be it as long as they are not forcing anybody to take part and their separatist ideals are not violently imposed within their community….
It would have been proper to detain the leader for long so he could have been used as a channel for dialogue and more understanding of the opposing group needs!!
