Constitution-making: A never ending process? An enquiry into the Constant Amendments to the Cameroonian Constitution

Cameroon became independent in 1960 and underwent the reunification process in 1961 following its appointment between England and France in 1914. First constitution replaced in 1961. Second constitution made Cameroon a Federal State composed of 2 states - reversed in 1972 was made Unitary State with a third Constitution. This raises the question as to whether the constitution-making process may be a continuous exercise. Therefore this paper aims at uncovering the dynamics of the frequent constitutional amendments in Cameroon within the broader African context.
