In accordance with the customs of Gonja, Yagbonwura Bii-Kunuto Jewu Soale I will be out-doored on Tuesday, March 21 at the Jakpa Palace in Damongo.

Dignitaries from all walks of life including Government officials, traditional rulers from other jurisdictions and members of the Diplomatic community are expected to grace the occasion.

The new Overlord is expected to maintain the prevailing peace and tranquility of the Kingdom and propel traditional governance.
