Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of the opponent’s fate. – Sun Tzu, The Art of War

Chofor Che Christian-Aimé is a Cameroonian  with over eight years of civil service experience. He attended secondary and high school education at Sacred Heart College, Mankon Bamenda, from 1989 to 1996. He holds an undergraduate degree in law (LLB), obtained in1999, from the University of Yaoundé II, Soa Cameroon.  He also holds a professional diploma in public administration, obtained in 2002, from the National School of Administration and Magistracy (ENAM), Cameroon. In 2003, he obtained  a Master of Laws (LLM) from the Centre for Human Rights, University of Pretoria, South Africa, thanks to a German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) scholarship. In August 2003, his thirst for free markets and economic liberty, soared, when he attended the Cato University in San Diego, California, USA.This summer university was hosted by the prestigious Washington D.C. based libertarian think tank, the Cato Institute. He was later on a research intern at this prestigious think tank in 2004.

Upon his return to civil service after studies in 2005, Chofor Che was appointed by Prime Ministerial decree as Second Assistant Senior Divisional Officer for Manyu Division, South West region, Cameroon, a position he held from 2006 to 2011. Chofor Che was on study leave from government service in 2011 and was a Ford Foundation Doctoral researcher with the Multi-level Government Initiative at the Community Law Centre, Faculty of Law, University of the Western Cape, South Africa from 2011 to 2012. He is back in Cameroon and completing his PhD at the Facutly of Jurisprudence and Public Law at the University of the Western Cape, South Africa. His research interests cut across free markets, international human rights, multi-level government, federalism and decentralisation.

Chofor Che is also an associate of Africanliberty.org, a collaboration between the Atlas Economic Research Foundation and Imani (Ghana), an African libertarian focused program.  The vision at AfricanLiberty.org is to bring African voices for liberty to the wider world and work with African media to disseminate policy ideas for a new century of peace, freedom, and prosperity. AfricanLiberty.org also works with similar free market initiatives such as UnMondeLibre.org and OrdemLivre.org.

In July 2012, Chofor Che alongside prominent libertarian writers like Professor George Ayittey, Franklin Cudjoe, Alex Ndungu,  Rejoice Ngwenya, Bright SimonsKofi Bentil published a book entitled  VOICES FROM AFRICA.  Africa is still not completely where it ought to be politically and economically. This project sponsored by Atlas Economic Research Foundation and published by AfricanLiberty.org, focuses on freedom especially against the background of Africa’s quest to free itself completely from never-do-well protectionist economies, the remnants of old military eras of leadership and the remains of sit-tight rulers across the continent.

Chofor Che has also written a chapter in a book on Constitutionalism and Democratic Governance in Africa published by the Pretoria Universty Law Press in 2013. This chapter focuses on the role of the Constitutions of Cameroon in the promotion of limited government and individual rights since independence.

As a researcher and consultant, Chofor Che also consults on a pro bono basis, for Frank’s International, Douala,Cameroon (an oil drilling subsidiary of Frank’s International). He is also a pro bono human/civil rights consultant at Atanga Law Office, a prominent law firm based in Douala, Cameroon.
