The country of Ghana reached the height of its greatness during the reign of Tenkamenin in the 11th century. Though his carefull management of the gold trade across the sahara desert into West Africa, Tenkamenin’s empire flourished But his greatest strengh was not in economics, but in governance. Each day Tenkamenin would ride out on horseback and listen to the problems and concerns of his people, he insisted that no one be denied an audience and that they be allowed to remain in his presence untill satisfied that justice had been done. This Simbul reveres him.
