The Ndzndzv dispute concerned the Nso' people of western Cameroon, and had its origins in long-standing customs and personal mistrust within the offices of Fon [king] and Faay [councillor]. The dispute's roots can be traced back to the early 20th century. It developed into a perceived struggle for supremacy between the two offices, and was finally settled in 1968 after a period of negotiation.
