In this edition we revisit a little-known period in the history of France and Cameroon. In the 1950s and 1960s, the French army fought alongside Cameroonian government forces against members of the leftist UPC movement, which it labelled as “rebels”. FRANCE 24 spoke to a crucial witness from this period, a former French soldier sent to Cameroon from 1962 to 1964, who has decided to speak out.
A report filmed in France and Cameroon by Nicolas Germain, with Marcel Amoko, Zigoto Tchaya, Melina Huet and Sylvain Rousseau.
A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett and Christopher Davis.
