I am Mansa Musa. I have decided to divide my empires into provinces and over each province is a ferba.
Hi I am a ferba. I oversee the day to day running of the government. I am going to go on the Hajj.
On the journey of the Hajj, to get to Mecca and back, I travel by camel along with an enormous caravan and many other camels an people.
I am riding by horse and am leading the caravan and the hajj which is an important duty to Islam.
We are going on the Hajj because it is a duty of Islam. The Hajj is a pilgrimage to Mecca that takes place in the last month of the year. Along with me and Mansa Musa it is believed that as many as accompanied us on the journey.
There was a very large amount of gold in Mali from all the mines, but we needed salt for many reasons. We traded the gold with places which had salt mines since salt was very important for keeping the people healthy and preserving food.
We made a stop in Cairo and visited the village. Mansa Musa gave large amounts of gold to the villagers as gifts and also traded goods.
I think that Mansa Musa needs me because I help him govern more efficiently and I keep the government running smoothly.
