The Traditional Ruler of Bachou Ntai in Manyu Division of the South West Region, Senator Nfor George Tabetando Ndiepso, on Thursday, July 27, 2017, threatened to desecrate the sanctity of his tradition by kneeling and even prostrating before the population of Kumba to send their Children to school come September.
Nfor Tabetando was leading a delegation of CPDM Senators to Kumba to donate hospital equipment in the Division.
According to Tabetando, children should not be punished for sins they did not commit.
To him, if those in positions of responsibility did not go to school, it would have been impossible for them to contribute to nation building.
He said one can only become a specialist in any field if he is educated.
The Senator parents at the occasion to be partners in the back- to- school campaign.
But many people who witnessed the traditional ruler’s action termed it as a desecration of the revered traditional institution which the Senator incarnates.
According to them, a Nfor, Nfon, Fon or Chief worth the salt, does not kneel in front of his subjects no matter the magnitude of the problem.
Among the items donated by the Senators were: simple delivery kits and hospital beds that will help to arrest the common challenge of acquired hospital infections.
Trash cans and other hygiene and sanitation equipment were also donated.
