By the tradition of the Mbula Kingdom, the Murum Mbula can only be selected from two ruling clans, namely Fwa and Muzong and both clans had been in intense competition to produce the new king.
Press recalls that the Fwa ruling house has had more of the kings than the Muzong clan and Muzong youths had sought rotation to enable them produce the king this time.
