Author: Timothy Mbombo
The Scourge of Prejudice chronicles the journey of Eric Mbindong, a young Bambuyan living in French-dominated Wondofangeton in Cameroon… But his efforts are thwarted at every turn, not by being unqualified or inept, but because he and his English-speaking brethren in Wondofangeton are minorities—the victims of a domineering regime that favors family connections, heritage, and political maneuvers over merit… Ultimately, after a crushing final defeat, Mbindong lashes out at the system and unwittingly becomes a voice of revolution for his people.
