Chief Of Ghanaian Tribe Goes Back To Canada To Do Some Landscaping

Chief Of Ghanaian Tribe Goes Back To Canada To Do Some Landscaping

Go back 12 months and Eric Manu was in Langley, Vancouver, working as a garden landscaper.

Eric, however, is of royal blood back in his native Ghana, and when a relative who headed up the tribe from his local village passed away, the honour to be chief tribesman fell to him.

He is the chief of the Akan tribe in the village of Adansi Aboado, which is home to around 6,000 people, reports CTV News.

Eric moved to Canada in 2012 after marrying a Canadian lady whom he met in his home country.

And now he's come back for a few months to do a bit more gardening. He told CTV News: "Sometimes we go to the [job] site and they say, 'You are the chief. I saw you on TV. Why are you doing the landscaping?' This is humbleness you understand. Anytime I'm in Canada, I'm proud to work for my boss."

But Eric isn't just coming back to do a bit of garden landscaping. He's also hoping to raise money for his home village so they can have access to basics such as new school equipment and improving healthcare standards, among other projects.

He's done this with his former landscaping boss Susan Watson, setting up the To The Moon And Back Foundation. And it appears that the money is making a real difference in Eric's community.

Keep up the smashing work, Eric!
