The development oriented MP never missed the opportunity of energizing the fundraiser at the esplanade of the Bambui palace as one of the major chief launchers with the sum of 500 000FCFA, which event saw contributions from across the board amounting to over 22 millions. 

The Fon of Bambui HRH Angafor Moo-bo III has expressed immense gratitude to all his sons and daughters for working relentlessly towards giving the rural home and the village in general a befitting face lift. He has appealed for more contributions for the development of the village. 

The wish of Barrister Mbumbu Dickson and his executive is that the funds raised will be immediately put to use. By the time funds are exhausted, they hope the project will be at nothing less than 90 percent physical realisation. 

The AGM also afforded the people of Bambui through an ecumenical service an opportunity to thank God and ask for more blessing and protection of the village and her children where ever they maybe.
