Municipal Chief Executive for the Sissala East Municipality Hon Nanyua Karim has called on the chiefs and people in the municipality most especially the Chinchan community to support the assembly in its development agenda by preserving the communal labor activity which was previously championed by the chiefs in the Sissala land.
He made these comments at the coronation ceremony of the chief of the Chinchan community, Kuoro Ahmed Lurimuah Hor VI.
He noted that, in time past, chiefs used to mobilize their community members within a particular day of the week to undertake an activity to solve a problem of the community but this is not seen these days, but he says communal labor form part in the development agenda of the various communities in the municipality.
Hon MCE also mentioned that chiefs are the custodian of our culture and tradition; everyone should endeavor to support and unite with the chiefs to help preserve the cultural values and norms of the people they serve. He implores the chiefs to ensure the culture and tradition remain an integral part of their societal living.
