Present to receive the gifts were members SWECC executive Council, who variously showered Hon. Lifaka with praises.

For instance, Chief Tabong Kima (and retired Ambassador) said, “I have not heard before that any of our MP’s has had anything to do with the chiefs. It is a wonderful initiative. The chiefs are delighted for the gifts”

For his part, a beaming Chief Tabe Tando, said, “Madam, we are grateful .You are the first to come. We have seen images of what you have done elsewhere before this. We can only say continue...”
