HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF SCAC
What is known as the ‘SCAC - SPEAK CLEAR ASSOCIATION OF CAMEROON’ started in 1987 as a family self-help group and was originally limited to the family of the late papa LUKONG that lived in the English speaking section of Cameroon. Pa Lukong was a polygamist with a total of 3 wives, 21 children and 32 grand children, and out of this number about 75 percent are stutterers. They started to meet as a group to discuss how they could follow some of the above mentioned traditional forms of stuttering therapy. Other stutterers who were not of this family started joining them and it was no longer a family affair. Some of these members migrated out of town and some settled in Douala and continued with this group and other stutterers joined them. A committee was set up headed by LUKONG Joseph and Peter GARA to draw up the laws for the association with a view of legalizing it. This was done and the draft copy presented to the general body, and after deliberations it was adopted as the laws of the association. An application was tabled with the competent government services for legalization of the association.
