Recent happenings worldwide have proven the African child is an “Endangered specie” of human beings. This is not because they will soon go out of extinct, but because they are haunted everywhere they go, even in their homeland. According to studies published on dw.com, wars only, killed 5 million African children over 20 years. The International Day of the African child didn’t happen perchance and that is why it is celebrated every year. The hundreds who died in Soweto South Africa in 1976 envisaged all these killings and hardship conditions and fought ahead of us. African children like Senge have no other option but to stand up and fight for themselves because even the leaders they look up to cannot fight for them. “International Day of the African Child 2020, Senge’s Ordeal” exposes some of our African children face because they have black skin no one to fight for them.…

Hello and welcome or welcome back to Eduke’sInk. This is the continuation of “First Chattere-the first boy to ask me for a love relationship”. As promised in chapter one, we are continuing with chapter two today. Take a seat and enjoy First Chattere: Part Two.” In case you missed part one, you can read it here.   Part two of how he went about the chatting thing Sunday came and everyone was at the field to see the ball. The usual football matches were going on and every village was interested watch. XYZ had sent his friend the previous night to tell me he wanted us to talk at the field. This left me nervous the whole night because I didn’t know which response to give him. I knew his motives already. He had been admiring me from afar; most of his attention was focused on me each time…

Though it’s common with almost every African girl in her puberty stage, few can talk about their First “Chattere”-First boy to ask them for a love relationship. Many of our readers have asked to read about our experience of a “chattere.” This story of a first chattere may not apply to all the girls, but, most of them had a similar experience to this. Mind you, most of us African girls could not share these experiences with our mothers because we were shy and had lots of stereotypes. As usual, Eduke’s Ink gives its readers what they demand. Enjoy this beautiful piece. It seeks to inform, educate, and entertain our readers of the stories we have around us. What “Chattere” means “Chattere” in our local Cameroonian parlance is a boy that is asking out a girl on a love relationship. We call it chattere because the boys chat with us…

I have always wanted to be a Digital Marketer/Communicator, reason why I created this blog. This is one of the first steps to help me hone my content creation skill. Meeting Kenneth was another step to it. I will love to share with you our encounter and how every other aspiring Cameroon Digital Marketer can partake. I met this intelligent guy at ActivSpaces and he swept me off my feet with his intelligence. Get to meet Kenneth. I walked into my space at 9;30AM and saw this handsome, tall fresh guy relaxing on my sofa at the corner of the lobby. Hhhmmm, I paused for a second, greeted passively, went into my office, dropped my bag and came back to greet properly. He was in the company with others guests. “Hi Kenneth, my name is Eduke Nadesh. I am the Community Manager for ActivSpaces and content creator for Eduke’sInk…… Nice…

I couldn’t stop brandishing my “32” to anyone who cared to know. Hahahahah. The gap tooth, white t-shirt, dark lipstick didn’t  go unnoticed. Everyone knew “shwanging”  (show-show) was my usual but the day’s own was extra. Just imagine a village girl shown on TV, that was my mood. I smiled broadly, from mola to mola as I scrolled through the pictures sent to my gallery by those who watched the show. Yaaayy! I was on TV for the first time. I have been guest on HiTv’s most watched morning show, Elaela Gbwamu with Manow as host. Damn! This lady got some skills. The energy from her voice brought back memories of my days in JMC (Journalism and Mass Communication) as presenter of the radio program, “My Community and I.” I was so excited talking about Eduke’sInk, my blog, where I pour out all my inspiration. I couldn’t cover the gap tooth…

“For this Kamer whey we dey now so, who no want make waka? Place don spoil. Sef sef chop for put body and soul together no dey”. Find out why I couldn’t further my studies in Germany though I gained admission into a German University. Like any other Cameroonian youth living in the North and South West regions, my wish was to flee from the crisis by travelling to Germany. I have always had this wish to travel out of Cameroon for my 1st master’s degree. But the vision became clearer when the crisis started hitting very hard on me. So, I contacted a friend abroad and told him about my wish. He knew the situation at home and was ready to help me get out of this dungeon. The best means we could think of was through schooling. He did research on schools and choices fell on…

I visited Ediki, one of the most dangerous villages in the south West region greatly affected by the crisis. I spent 40 hours there with other IDPs I met. Find out my experience.

I hit the bushy road at about 5 O’ clock in the evening with my ‘Baby‘, our small Benji. Everyone in the bus was worried if we would be safe while in the famous Ediki village. So many horrible stories about military and separatists attacks have been heard and written about it. Ediki is a small village along the Kumba-Buea road in the South West region of Cameroon. Papa P resides there.

How did this start? Back then in August 2019, Eduke Nadesh, content creator for Eduke’sInk made two interesting trips to the capital city Yaounde for 2 events; The Scoop Media Award and the Peace Journalism training organized by the Cameroon English Newspaper Publishers Association (CENPA). In the course of her journies, she updated her WhatsApp contacts with beautiful and interesting stories. E.g “How I got robbed at Obili, Language barrier was one of the reasons I missed my event, car break down on our way to Buea, Living in Buea without water”. Some of them confessed the stories were really inspiring and entertaining. Many lessons were shared and learnt too. Suggestions started coming in after some of them discovered she could write beautiful stories. They suggested she writes a book. Others proposed she starts a blog so that the whole world can learn about her stories and the lessons. After…
