Looking at the program, one may state that the Council and the Catholic Church must have either worked together or played a major role for this visit as some churches, the palace and other political parties are left out completely. We should also note that the SDO and the Mayors of Kumbo last year visited this same city in USA. We hope that these exchanges can bring out developmental projects to our Kingdom.
