The forebears of Mankon had had a imaginative and prescient of improvement and the final stable of all humanity via making a small Mankon city which later grew to a latest urban with the teeming multitude converging to it from all nooks and crannies to benefit from the Mankon hospitality and a camaraderie ensemble.

it's precise Mankon were an anti-colonial jingoist who fought opposed to Zintgraff and the Germans and defied the British; yet earlier than, she used sheer strength to oblige different small villages and clans right into a Mankon Confederation. yet that used to be, on the subject of anti-colonialism, to protect her sovereignty and with regards to a Confederation, to represent an outstanding block to stem any exterior aggression. as a minimum, those are issues of previous and Mankon and her neighbours have each curiosity to keep up the peace within the area. we don't decide upon our neighbours, so as soon as neighbours, we needs to endeavour to cohabit peacefully.

The writer asserts Mankon, her neighbours and native management needs to uphold good-neighbourliness ethos as a way to avoid disruptive land/boundary disputes which could jeopardize the much-cherished peace within the zone.
