One Kamerun (OK) was a political party in British Cameroons.

History[edit]

One Kamerun was established by Ndeh Ntumazah in 1957 after the Union of the Peoples of Cameroon left the territory.[1] Supporting reunification with French Cameroons, it gained support from members of co-operatives, workers, intellectuals and university students.[2]

The party received 1.5% of the vote in the 1959 elections, but failed to win a seat. However, after increasing its vote share to 6.9% in the 1961 elections, it won one of the 37 seats in the House of Representatives.

After unification was achieved in 1961, the party disappeared.[2]
