Durbar Festival in Bolni

17 Mar 2017

by FBB

With NGOs and politicians in attendance at their Durbar festival, the leaders of Bolni took the opportunity to make requests for assistance. They want help acquiring electricity, a health clinic, a better road, and a junior high school. The speeches were broken up by musical interludes during which men and women, dressed to dance, made their way into the center of the gathered community. Many others from the audience, young and old, also joined in. One of the musical interludes was a song praising the importance of education. Even the songs were on-message.

At the end of the Durbar festival in Bolni the organizers gave token gifts of some yams and a chicken to the invited guests. The gift had to be taken home by moto, of course.
