Traditional dancing in front of the Chief

The Chief of the Tolon-Kumbungu district is a very wise and well-travelled man. He served in the Commonwealth Army and trained in Pakistan before travelling around the world with the Army. He also is a keen advocate of women’s rights: he encourages sex education and family planning and he supports women in business, for example he helped Alimutu Sadia Ibrahim build her chemist by gifting her land and building materials at no cost. In this picture, women from a local dance troupe perform traditional dancing for him in front of a gathering crowd of locals and children.
