Known in private life as Binalibeimi Michael Kambonja, the chief was among the few prominent and well established rulers in the northern region as he contributed to the development of education, healthcare, agriculture and a continuous peace in the Konkomba land.
With so much honesty, respect, wisdom and bravery, he was an integral member of the Northern Regional House of Chiefs, as he consistently makes suggestions and contributions geared towards the development of the entire Northern Region.
