The Paramount Chief of Gbo Chiefdom, P.C. Tutu Fawundu and P.C. Desmond Kagobai of Selenga Chiefdom both in the Bo District, have come under scathing attack by the Member of Parliament for Constituency 77, Hon.

Speaking in a radio broadcast over Radio KISS 104 FM in Bo, Hon. Paul Kamara said that out of the nineteen bundles in question, seven bundles each were for the School and the quarter for the Health Centre in the two towns in Gbo Chiefdom, while the remaining five bundles were meant for the building work in Selenga Chiefdom, all respectively entrusted to each of the two Paramount Chiefs in question.

Tutu Fawundu of Gbo Chiefdom, with the view of explaining the entire accusation and above all to properly throw light on the
There has been no independent verification of the above accusation except that various people spoken to say the rift between the Paramount Chiefs and the MP for Constituency 77 is not good to write home about which analysts say is not good for the development of war-torn chiefdoms, and henceforth called for an end to the hostilities.
