And, at the end of your summer stay, you would tell the story better! Do you remember the Kumba of post-independence days? That was during the 1970s! Kumba, popularly known as “K. Town”, was the dreamland of every citizen. Its business tentacles clutched thousands of people from every corner of the then Federal Republic and even beyond.

The effervescence of high life and merrymaking was contagious. The name “Kumba was a magnet! No women had the guts to jilt a man who lived in Kumba, irrespective of her beauty or her social standing. By 2007, “K. Town” had grown beyond the bounds of an ordinary township. It was then split into three council areas (Kumba 1, Kumba II and Kumba III). The decision signed by President Paul Biya drastically changed the face of Kumba II council area. The neigbourhood was tarred and its streets illuminated. Today, Kumba II remains a palpable dreamland for many youngsters who hope to irk a living in cocoa or lumber business. Thousands of them are also farmers and petty traders, excelling in the purchase and selling of automobile spare parts, radio and TV sets, computers and electronics.

The Kumba II constituency is also a decent space for democracy, though as slippery as slugs. Here, no one owns politics, and no politician owns anyone. Indeed, no political aspirant sleeps with both eyes closed because the boat can be piloted out of track at any time. Here the ruling and opposition parties permanently lock horns, with exasperated outcomes. Believe me. This constituency is reserved for the keenest and the smartest!
