Moroi made Goilala chief


THE GOVERNOR of the Central province Alphonse Moroi was initiated as the chief of Goilala in a rare ceremony at Tapini last Friday.

The people of Goilala also took the time to apologise to him for not giving him the due recognition during the recent opening of the Goilala Highway where the Acting Prime Minister Sir Puka Temu and  MP for Goilala Mathew Pioya were both given the status as chiefs of Goilala by wearing Bird of Paradise plumes headdresses.

A spokesman selected by the Goilala Council of Chiefs apologised for the oversight and did the full honors by crowning him the Chief of Goilala. He was also presented with gifts the included five pigs, two  sheep and a huge decorated shelf of food.

The celebration also saw four pigs being slaughtered and cooked using the earth oven and distributed among the people of the 10 Local Level Government wards in the Tapini District.

Governor Moroi thanked his people and the Goilala Council of Chiefs for  the recognition and exchanged rice bags, cartons of canned food and cash of K15,000 with the people. The goods were  worth about K5000.
