At the time the estuary of the Wouri River was known as the Rio dos Camarões, by 1650, it had become the site of a town formed by immigrants, said to have arrived from Congo, who spoke the Douala language. During the 18th century it was the center of the slave trade. In 1826 Douala appeared to be made of four different villages located in four specific locations, between 1884 and 1895 the city was a German protectorate. The colonial politics focused on commerce and some exploration of the unoccupied territories, in 1885, Alfred Saker organized the first mission of the British Baptist Church. In the same year the city known as Kamerun was renamed Douala and became the capital of the territory until 1902, in 1907 the Ministry of Colonies was established and Douala had 23,000 citizens. After World War I, in 1919, the German colonial territories became French, france received a mandate to administer Douala.
