Re: [AFOaKOM] JINABO, DEATH IN NGU
Dear Jinabo,
Thanx a great deal for your generosity. Your inexhaustible store of oral tales tickles my imagination. It is true they say that a dying old man in Africa is a library set on fire. You are blessed to be in the company and to enjoy the fondness of our venerable mother queen, Nafoin Kom Therese Mebenagha of Sho-kom. I would be grateful if you helped me out on this one. What transpired between the Koms and the Babungos (Ngus) or simply How did the Koms connect to the Babungos?

THE GERMANS ATTACK!

Eugen Zintgraff described how he was received in Kom on his arrival there from ACHAIN in 1889:

He was "suddenly surrounded by warriors who were only pacified with difficulty with the help of the old man. It seemed that the chief was piqued that Zintgraff had not asked permission to enter and wanted to see him. The BeKom seemed very excitable. The war party was led by four young men, princes perhaps, with war-shirts, feather-caps, decorated powder-horns, spears and dane-guns".

It seems that Kom "had no further contacts with the Germans until December 1901 when patrols, engaged in a punitive attack on its neighbour and rival BAFUT, crossed its border and accepted the submission of two Kom tributary chiefs, those of MEJUNG and MEJANG, erroneously believed to be BAFUT vassals".

Kom Brief History: Oral traditions have been the unique source of Kom early history. Their traditions of settlement linked them with the so-called Tikar of the central Grassfields who migrated from the Upper Mbam river and its tributaries. The Grassfields which extend from the highlands of the North-Western to the Western regions of the country Cameroon, were for centuries, a 'scene of movement of small groups of peoples and the diffusion of institutions and material culture.
