The chiefs and elders of Tatale-Sanguli Traditional Area in the Northern Region Tuesday boycotted the 61st Independence Day Anniversary celebration in the area, over an alleged disrespect for the traditional authority by their District Chief Executive (DCE), Mr Thomas Mbomba.

The chiefs have alleged that Mr Mbomba has failed to involve them in the governance process of the area and has even turned down their request to meet him and dialogue on issues pertaining to development in the district.
