Bomboko community ceremony

During a ceremony on May 1in Buea, Cameroon, the chiefs of the Bomboko Area honored John Sullivan and Stein Skjørshammer with membership into the Bomboko community by dressing them in traditional Bomboko costumes and presenting them before an audience of more than 100 persons, all from the Bomboko Area. “This was a great surprise and an honor I never expected”, said Sullivan, who spoke on behalf of the two during the ceremony. “The theory has it that we all (black, white, yellow, red) originate from Africa. Africa is our roots. Now, I can claim, not only having my roots in Africa,  I am an African and I immensely proud of it!  Dr. Skjørshammer and I belong to the Bomboko-clan!”
