Bakwerirama is making available the Gospel of Luke in Bakweri. The book is part of a gigantic project, started about a decade ago, to translate the entire Bible into the Bakweri or Mokpe language.
According to Reverend Genty Eyole Njie Ndeley of the Cameroon Baptist Convention, the project was initiated by Nyango Ann Mojoko Musonge who chose Mola Humphrey Ekeme Monono to serve as project coordinator.
In addition to Reverend Ndeley, the other volunteer translators are Rev. Henry Yume Amabibi of the Free Methodist Church; Rev. Paul Ewome of the Full Gospel Church; Mola Mola Mokoto Mo Njie, a Bakweri language broadcaster at CRTV Buea; and Mola Protus Efange Esuka. Mola Lyonga La Ngoisa is the architect of the Mokpwe phonology used in the Bible.
The translation team will soon start work on a Bakweri Dictionary.
