“Your people have done well, we have not forgotten the role of late General David Ejoor, Chief Jereton Mariere who lived with us here. I want to say new broom sweeps well but the old broom sweeps better. I just decided to call some of those names for you to know that we have friends that we cannot easily forget”.
