Lawrence Eka is a social services and behavioral health professional who left his native Cameroon and moved to the US, where he earned a master’s degree in economics at Roosevelt University. He now lives on the outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia, with his wife and three children. Lawrence has published his new book “Behold the Blessed Country”: a riveting story based both on his experience in his homeland and the sociopolitical realities that continue to challenge the central African country.

Austin Chad, a disgruntled university student from the minority English (Anglophone) Cameroon considers self-determination of his region through an armed insurrection against the repressive and discriminatory practices of the majority French (Francophone) Cameroon dominated government. Advised against this suicidal move Chad ventures into the USA where through hard work he builds a formidable business economic powerhouse. It is through this vast business enterprise that he plans to counteract and frustrate Cameroon’s government’s policies of unfettered access to the exploitation of the enormous Anglophone natural resources. Chad’s dream of unleashing his arsenal for the uncommon economic transformation of his region seems to be “going south” as events have begun unfolding in Cameroon: a new generation Anglophones is fed up with the injustices and is demanding equity and redress from the government through a peaceful protest. The high-handed response from the government through its trigger-happy military forces will engender widespread mayhem with the Anglophone region becoming the killing fields of Cameroon.

Published by Page Publishing, Lawrence Eka’s engrossing book is a spellbinding story of the persistent hatred and violence plaguing modern Cameroon.
“A stunning revelation of poor leadership in today’s Africa Cameroon, where the minority English speaking region is fighting for her life against the extinction of her identity that is about to be fragrantly absorbed by the French majority.

In a mesmerizing and convincing style Lawrence Eka catapults us into the USA where heaven meets earth...the final destination; a place where sheer determination, perseverance, hard work and faith compensate those with a clear vision of purpose. This book is ambitious and powerful with a startling narrative and inspiration. You don’t dare to take your eyes off the page.”

-Chebe Emmanuel N. DBA (Doctor in Business Adm) Chattahoochee Technical College Marietta, GA.
