A four-day unification conference aimed at reuniting the Kudemonweh and Numoweh Chiefdom of Harper District in Maryland County has ended in Harper. The conference, which is the second of its kind, was organized by sons and daughters of both chiefdom under the banner ‘Kudenumo Peace Initiative Foundation Incorporated.’
The two chiefdom have been at loggerhead due to the boundary dispute between two oldest towns of both sides; Rock town of Kudemoweh and Big Town of Numoweh.
The group’s co-president Thomas Bedell, disclosed the age-old confusion among the Glebo people does not only affect the younger generation of two chiefdom but also the unity of the entire county.
Bedell noted that it was on that basis that the Kudenumo Peace Initiative Foundation Incorporated has decided to rebuild the once exited peace and unity among the Glebo. Bedell said successful, the initiative will enable both chiefdom to foster their political, economic and social goals in unison.
According to him, the conference provided an opportunity for both parties to come up with solutions towards settling the boundary issue which remains the most crucial debate there.
The convention brought together over 1000 persons, including delegates from 20 Glebo towns, well wishers, among others. Ambassador Dan Morias, Jimmy Anderson and George Proud, among other prominent citizens of Maryland are said to be supportive of the peace process.
