SOME INFORMATION ABOUT THE NSO PEOPLE OF CAMEROON
"The Nso are a people of the Bamenda grass fields Northwest Region of Cameroon. Their traditional language is Lamnso (language of Banso) and their capital is Kumbo – where the Palace of the Fon is found.
The Nso’ people migrated from Tikari in the Adamawa Region of Cameroon when there was a bloody succession after the death of Chief Tinki in 1387. The enthronement of Mveing as successor of Tinki sent all rivals to the throne away from Kimi. Ngonnso’, the founder of the Nso’ dynasty, left Kimi with a few followers together with her brothers Nchare Yen and Mbombam and their respective followers. After parting company with her brothers, Ngonnso’ and her followers first settled in Mbo’nso’, then later to Ndzennso’, Kovifem, Taavisa (for security), back to Koovifem, then to Kimbo (Kumbo). The tribe got its name from Ngonnso’, and is one of the largest tribes of Cameroon.
The Fon is the traditional ruler. He is both the head of the
traditional government and the chief religious authority in charge of keeping
the ancestors happy. The Fon is supported in his duties by the seven notables
called Vibais. These Vibais are Shufais, whose positions are determined by
rather intricate history."...
