  Cameroon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Republic of Cameroon is a unitary republic of central Africa.
Originally a German colony, the former French Cameroon and part of British Cameroons merged in 1961 to form the Federal Republic of Cameroon which in 1972 was renamed the United Republic of Cameroon; since 1984 the country is known as the Republic of Cameroon or République du Cameroun (its official languages are English and French).
Cameroon has generally enjoyed stability, which has permitted the development of agriculture, roads, and railways, as well as a petroleum industry.

An effective transportation infrastructure was necessary to facilitate attainment of the colonial objective of exploitation, particularly the movement of priced natural resources from the hinterland to seaports for onward transmission to the metropolis or colonial master nations.
Also, the fact that colonial transport infrastructure development policy was avowedly biased in favour of areas with immediate economic potential and/or those of military importance, provides some explanation for the fact that at the eve of independence, after several decades of colonial rule, most areas in the country remained inaccessible.
It is therefore not surprising that vast areas, hence populations in Cameroon XE "Cameroon: Republic of Cameroon: West: East Cameroun"  remain disconnected from the rest of the country because of poor transport infrastructure or the total lack thereof.
