    Its good to honour our grand/fathers all all old groups including the identified freedom fighters when the resources are available. Its true chiefs mustn’t actively participate in politics but always support each and every gvt of the day. Let’s hope by building palaces, they are still gvt properties as some chiefs may think of.

    We need to respect traditional leaders, if you can’t because you belong to another tribe, well_ at least for Christ sake.. jst try, we know charity begins at home but they say “Every character is dynamic!”

      Yes we ought to respect them but when they become political or choose sides like this one not so long ago,they loose my respect.

    Why couldn’t he build a palace for himself. Or even his subjects build for him if indeed they respect him as chief. Always begging.
