Three Chiefdoms in Moyamaba District establish trade fairs

Three chiefdom’s in Moyamba District — Bagruwa, Timidale, and Kargboro — have united to initiate weekly Fambul Tok trade fairs. How about that for community ownership? Community leaders and Fambul Tok community structures established the trade fairs to bring people together to trade goods, foods, and to continue to support reconciliation activities in the districts.

Every week communities, in collaboration with Fambul Tok community structures, select an avenue and a reconciliation theme to promote.

The first fair took place at Foya village, Mye Section, TImidale chiefdom. A traditional leader who participated at the first fair said, “the reason for the fair is to bring people together and enhance the peace process in the three chiefdoms and all of Salone.” He also stated communities are now using Fambul Tok structures to settle disputes in communities.
