” Thomas Sankara is not a political reference for me. It embodies a moment of turbulent history. Some have often thought that impertinence could substitute for reflection. I believe that he died a little as he lived, that is, in a misunderstanding, in an agitation. I respect those who recognize him in him I do not know on what basis, but it is not my political model. His mission of preaching has been a little longer than that of Jesus Christ and I am glad that he has disciples who continue his work but I find that it is not the event that marked me this week. “Said politician Herve Emmanuel NKom, while he was taking part in the Canal Presse program on the Cameroon channel Canal 2 international on 15 October 2017.
