Thanks Dr. Bate Besong for the being the most wonderful lecturer who impacts knowledge to his students without reservation. You are very selfless in what you do for your students and the nation as a whole, though many may not realise it now. I just want to say your efforts are lauded.

Your fighing spirit remains what I admire of you. You know the truth, you are intelligent, but your worth is not known by those at home. A king is not respected by his clansmen but strangers know who he is.

I want thank you for who you are. When you stand by your words in this world, it makes all the difference. You have impacted a lot of lives in Cameroon. Only fools surrender before the end of the journey. Continue your work and I do hope it will help to change our country.

LETTER TO CAMEROONIANS

BB WILL LIVE AND PEOPLE WILL TELL THE STORY OF A HERO WHO IS STILL TO BE RECOGNISED BY THE CAMEROONIAN PEOPLE, WHEN THE TIME WILL COME THEY WILL ONLY HAVE THEIR EYES TO CRY FOR THE LOST OF A NATIONAL HERO WHO IS YET TO BE RECOGNISED.LET CAMEROONIANS NOT DO AS MONGO BETI AND OTHERS PASSED AWAY WITHOUT ACKNOWLEDGMENT. PEOPLE SHOUL FOLLOW THW STEPS OF BB AND NOT SEAT ON FENCES FOR THEY WILL LIVE TO REGRET IT.

When one walks the streets of any Town in Cameroon one begins to wonder what this country is turning into. BB use to say when he looks at the university of Buea he sees a vast cementry. To me, UB - " A Place to be", is an epitome of our decaying country. A country where when people are promoted they sing praises to the Diety "Popol". This is the same digusting manner in which some students in this university behave when they are graded marks they deserve. that is after picking up their individaul results slip, they go around shouting " thank you Dr. Lyonga! etc. They have being made to believe that they are empty vessels so what ever they score is given to them at the mercy of the Lecturer. VAIN NONSENCE!!!
AS a place of learning and research I strongly Believe our state universities should be the bedrocks for a better Cameroon Tomorrow.

I just want to appreciate BB for what he is doing to develop Cameroon Literature. I read English and French at the UB and my best English literature was ENG 423: LITERARY THEORY AND CRITICISM with BB. Today, I am planing for a Master Degree in Comparative literature because BB gave me appetite for literature. Courage and courage BB, God Bless You!

Oh My Good God, what can man do without you? You are the creator of our universe. I saw the fame of a great schoolar during my days in UB

His hair was all nate with with knowledge
His appearance push me to my dream
His writing make me full of wisdom

Tears run down my cheeks as words can't buy life, a great father, an uncle and a teacher of knowledge. for how long shall dead make mockery of us> Adieu Father, for I am fill in with grief. I can't not hold on my sorrws and grief on this fatal calamity, But our father Jesus, would lift your spirit higher. get rest and may your spirit and others rest in perfect peace. Jehovah shalom.

WE ARE VERY TOUCHED BY THIS UNTIMELY DEATH, BUT WE KNOW YOU WILL ALWAYS BE IN OUR HEARTS TO SEE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE.
THE LEGACY YOU'VE LEFT BEHIND IS NOTHING BUT TO SEE US FREE ONE DAY.
MAY YOUR SOUL REST IN PEACE BB.

Tem  Edwin  Nji

Kudos Kudos kudos to you all for rekindling the glowing splint. The comments floading in is clear indication of a collective struggle that has just started with the physical absence of BB. Thses comments must be translated to concrete revulutionary writings in papers in our country to desseminate our Hero's ideologies.
I honour u all.

Anwan Thomas

He was a real gem.I watch his last interview on Crtv which was conducted inside UB and some months leter, We received the sad news.
May his gentle soul rest in peace.

Undoubtedly, how many of us, students of literature from the university of Buea, would not be grateful for Dr. Besong for the love of literature he has insteilled in us? Truly, this man is leading the way to eclectism and university, because the values of justice, aquity and work are universal, atemporal.

He was a good man unfortunately i never met him at the university
