Senator Nfon VE Mukete
Chiefs in the South West region will this Saturday February 18, 2017 elect new Executive to pilot the affairs of the organ for the next two years.
The Sun reveals that the elective general Assembly of the South West Chiefs Conference will take place at the Conference hall of Limbe City Council.
According to The Sun, aside from the fact that the Fako Chiefs Conference was unable to host the meeting, the outgoing SWECC President Senator Nfon VE Mukete had been unavailable to approve a date for the elective GA.
Chief Njombe, President of Buea Chiefs Conference and the scribe Kombe Richard Ndike were elected as candidates for the top job to replace the Senator.
But Chief Molinge David of Upper Muea says he cannot be ruled by third class chiefs especially chief Njombe.
Calls for reconciliation have yielded no fruits.
But the real issue at hand is the Anglophone crisis and stance of custodians of tradition.
While North West Fons Union, NOWEFU has strongly condemned usage of force in ongoing crisis, the new executive of SWECC may not speak same language.
This could be seen in their motion of support to the Head of State submitted through South West Governor Bernard Okalia Bilai on January 26, 2017 appreciating the creation of the National Commission on Promotion of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism as well as giving their unflinching support to the New deal Government..
