THE GBI TRADITIONAL ORDER

Traditional leadership in Gbi follows a hierarchical order, with a paramount chief and queen at the topmost position, followed by divisional chiefs and queens who in turn are followed by sub-divisional chiefs and queens. Other positions in the traditional order include linguists, warlords and elders. 

The Gbi Dzigbes - the Gbis from the Hohoe area - are led by Paramount Chief Gabusu - traditionally referred to as Togbega Gabusu.

 

The Gbi Anyigbes - the Gbis from the Peki area - are led by Paramount Chief Kwadzo Dei, traditionally referred to as Togbe Kwadzo Dei. 

Currently, Gabusu VI leads the Gbi Dzigbes. When the Gbi Anyigbes install a new paramount chief, he will be Kwadzo Dei XII.
