'NKOSI' & HIS FAMILY
"I can't take my mask off because my family, friends or property can be targeted back home"
'Nkosi' and his family left the Southern Cameroons region before the recent Anglophone crisis started. "We normally went home at least every second year, but the fact we can't do it... there's a disconnect with the family that creates a social burden; it's quite disheartening." They have turned another African nation into their current residence, but feel that their true home will always be in Southern Cameroons.
"Where you were born, where you grew up will always be home. My late father was buried in our compound, if you cannot link up with that ancestral history, you feel lost. Given the past few years, there is uncertainty and nobody knows what will happen."
Settled. Wishes to visit home.
