L’ASSIKO n’est pas une danse traditionnelle des Bassa , elle va devenir une danse moderne que les Bassa ont adoptée..
Traditionnel signifie « fondé sur la tradition », et tradition veut dire « manière habituelle d'agir ou de penser dans une région,
rituel pratiqué depuis des siècles ». Or les BASSA sont composés de multiples clans dont les trois quart n’ont découvert l’ASSIKO que par les médias. Par essence même cette danse n’est pas pratiquée chez les BabimbI, Bikok, Bassa de Douala ou

Many thanks to @patsuffo for this evening’s chat on Weekend Sports @crtv_web National Station:
Here’s a (long) summary:
On #Cameroon’s 1st round exit from the 2002 World Cup:
“Until today I am still asking myself what could have been in that WC. We had a very, very good squad
...but arguments over bonuses cost them more than a week in transit. Suffo says "the time that we spent in Paris jeopardized our tournament altogether...we were confident in reaching at least the 2nd round in the world cup & not being able to make it was very disappointing for us
Of Marc V. Foe - "Losing not only a teammate, but a leader, a friend, it was very difficult. He was very friendly with everybody in the team, everybody will be okay with whatever he says, it was very very sad.”

On the hard-to-repeat success of the #IndomitableLions in the 2000s:

Let me start this thread with definitions, because context is really important these days when we address topical issues.

Women are vulnerable.

Women are constantly "exposed to the possibility of being attacked or harmed physically or emotionally" because we are women.
Last year, I was explaining to a male friend the reason why I don't take certain risks and why I simply refuse to put myself in certain positions he will put himself in without a thought.

He wasn't understanding.

In truth, he didn't get it at all
So I told him that just by virtue of being a woman, we are extremely vulnerable and constantly targeted.

He said "really?!!", I said "sure".

He said "how!?", I just decided to share some examples.

Because sometimes, it's important to put these things in perspective.

#AfricanNeuroscience [Thread]

Ever wondered what #Neuroscience research looks like in #Africa? For 3 years, we have been working on profiling the neuroscience research landscape in the continent’s 54 countries. Very excited to share our latest work: biorxiv.org/content/10.110…

Why is this important?
#Africa has real potential in #Neuroscience, but needs help to rise from its current position! To do this, we need accurate data that reflects the heterogeneity of research across the continent's 54 countries.

(2)
Such data is lacking, as previous estimates about research outputs from #Africa are mostly inaccurate, partly because it is difficult to tell whether the research was, in fact, conducted within Africa or outside the continent in collaboration with #Africanscientists

#Cameroon: NGOs, media and Fake news.

The news tells us less about Cameroon than about the people writing the news...

#Thread
Often misreporting stems from media picking up reports by non-governmental organizations (NGOs), such as Human Rights Watch (HRW) or Amnesty International (AI), and printing them without any independent verification as to the accuracy of their claims.
In many cases, groups like AI and HRW don’t have a local presence.

They rely on claims from local NGOs themselves, and don’t verify this information.

Local NGO makes a claim. An international NGO picks up that claim and passes it on to the media. The media then reports it.

It is time for one long #Coronavirus update. I have been resisting doing this as (1) I do not want to add to the hysteria & the panic & (2) I don't believe in doomsday predictions. Moreover, things have been moving so fast, who knows what's what. BUT it's time for real talk...
Overall, #Coronavirus (the outbreak of #COVID19) is REAL. The effects on your daily life from the fallout will be REAL. The impact society, economics, & politics in 2020 will be severe & REAL. None of this is Fake News. None of this should be downplayed. (2/
People who are trying to silence REAL discussion are doing a disservice to the public interest. This is a 9/11 & 2008 level event in terms of its impact on domestic & international dynamics. This thread is not about creating panic but encouraging a smarter response. (3/

THREAD: On February 14, over 20 people (mostly women and children) were killed in Ngarbuh village in #Cameroon. The government claimed it was an accident — but our analysis shows that the official story doesn’t add up.
The Cameroonian government said that during a firefight with separatists, a fire broke out which led to “blasts, followed by tongues of fire that eventually spread and reached nearby dwellings.” This, they claim, killed the victims. journalducameroun.com/en/wp-content/…
Our findings contradict that account. We analyzed footage and satellite imagery and worked with @iayongwa, who spoke to sources in Ngarbuh. They say the military deliberately carried out the attack. Here’s what we know.
