This installation took place during the late hours of the day. The SDO had earlier been to Limbe III to install the mayor there and his two deputies. One of the assignments the SDO for Fako Division gave to the mayor of Limbe I and his team was to work for the interest of the Limbe I community.
The SDO also called on the new mayor who has served as interim Mayor after his predecessor, Daniel Matute, was elected to  parliament as senator to bring unity among his councillors for a better realisation of their projects.

Limbe III (BIMBIA)

 


The installation of the mayor of Limbe III, Isaac Inongo Dalle, took another twist. One of the elites who read out the welcoming address during his installation ceremony, pleaded with the Senior Divisional Officer for Fako Division, Mr. Zang III, to fight against the indiscriminate sale of land.
While making his address, the elite explained that those who orchestrate the sales of land are most chiefs who are expected to protect the culture and customs of the people. According to him, they have resulted to sell even places considered sacred to the indigenous people.
While installing the new mayor in the mid hours of Monday November 25, 2013, Mr. Zang III, remarked that the sales of land in Fako Division is actually a serious problem that need special attention. He even went further to remind the new mayor, Mr. Dalle, to ensure that he resides in Bimbia where the Council is located so that he can better be placed to inform hierarchy of such problems as an elite and as a mayor of Limbe III. Previous mayors had lived out of Limbe III and it has retarded development in this area since they are hardly there to manage the affairs of the municipality.
While Limbe III chiefs prayed for the ancestors to guide their son, the new mayor, during his term of office, other elites presented a copy of the Holy Bible to him as the instrument that will give him the inspiration to succeed in his mission
