11 February: This rare video footage shows the people of Southern Cameroons, including their Prime Minister, John Ngu Foncha casting their votes during the UN-organized February 11, 1961 Plebiscite.

During the plebiscite, voters were asked: “Do you wish to achieve independence by joining the independent Federal Republic of Nigeria or do you wish to achieve independence by joining the independent Republic of Cameroun?” The rest is history
