The forebears of Mankon had had a imaginative and prescient of improvement and the overall stable of all humanity through making a small Mankon city which later grew to a contemporary urban with the teeming multitude converging to it from all nooks and crannies to benefit from the Mankon hospitality and a camaraderie ensemble. As either centripetal and centrifugal human forces come into play, there's guaranteed to be clashes of curiosity simply because man’s insatiable wishes are at asymmetrical variance with provides. those conflicts are specifically within the sector of land acquisition; however the unlucky factor is that a lot of those land/boundary disputes emanate from inside Mankon and some yet stressful instances come from a few Mankon neighbours. however the such a lot exasperating are the biased judgements taken by means of neighborhood directors, who of their warped-minded makes an attempt to stem clash, in its place fan and exacerbate the flames of discord.
it's real Mankon were an anti-colonial jingoist who fought opposed to Zintgraff and the Germans and defied the British; yet ahead of, she used sheer strength to oblige different small villages and clans right into a Mankon Confederation. yet that was once, in relation to anti-colonialism, to guard her sovereignty and in relation to a Confederation, to represent a superior block to stem any exterior aggression. as a minimum, those are issues of previous and Mankon and her neighbours have each curiosity to keep up the peace within the zone. we don't decide on our neighbours, so as soon as neighbours, we needs to endeavour to cohabit peacefully.

This publication is an exploratory and anthropological exhibit of the cultural background of the Mankon state. the writer feels this vibrant and various tradition and heritage, which hitherto were passed down verbally from new release to new release may possibly face endangerment if no longer harnessed, documented and projected. this is often extra so as the cosmopolitan nature of Mankon village, the pulse of Bamenda urban, erodes her tradition piecemeal.
The writer asserts Mankon, her neighbours and native management needs to uphold good-neighbourliness ethos in an effort to evade disruptive land/boundary disputes that can jeopardize the much-cherished peace within the quarter. He argues cogently, Cameroon’s management may possibly switch nomenclature to stay clear of clash because the denomination ‘Bamenda’ touching on the realm now occupied through Bamenda I, II, III and past, and inherited from the colonial management, truly potential the village and territory of Bamenda I.
