The Reunification Monument This imposing edifice stands out as one of the most significant representation of Cameroon’s past, present and future, located at the Ngoa-ekelle neighbourhood. It is a product of the creative work of art of the Cameroonian artist Gédéon Mpando who completed its design in 1974.
Explored by the Cathaginians, named by the Portuguese, belittled by slavery, evangelised to by the British, colonised by the Germans, divided between the British and the French, freed by the people and united as the United Republic of Cameroon in 1972, reunification is what our lovely fatherland earns after such a dramatic and significant journey. This monument is therefore a physical representation of the reunification between French and British Cameroons, hence a depiction of the hopes and dreams of a bilingual Cameroon.
In addition to its historic significance is its enchanting display of architectural impressiveness enhanced by the erstwhile staircase, the banquet hall at the basement and the flamboyant garden that radiates life around the monument, making it an ideal location to sit and admire nature. Meanwhile, the Glass Palace (National Assembly) is just a stroll away.
