It may surprise many here to know that the Ashanti and the Anlo were allies in the 19th century. In fact the Anlo joined the Ashanti in the latters invasion of northern eweland in 1869!!! Read also about how the British prevented the Anlo from supporting the Asante-British war (1874) by attacking, defeating and submitting Anlo to British suzereignty through the so-called Dzelukope Treaty of 1874. Learn about these and many more from Amenumey's and Acheampong's books.
Why Attack Asantes?

Some people have eyes but do not see. They are "educated" but cannot read. They are just blinded by their prejudices. Why do these fools attack Asantes for some article an Akuapim/Ga, who talks about his own experiences with both Asantes and Ewes, writes and makes full disclosure and takes ownership? People should speak to the issues raised as he challenged readers for contrary evidence to what he raised and stop this nonsense of calling every Akan an Asante.

Yaw Opare-Asamoa, you have really done it. You an Akwapim/Ga have launched the new phase of the Asante/Ewe wars. Thanks a million. I have made several comments since the last election imploring our traditional leaders to make peace between the Asante and the Ewe. This is what I wrote on Ghanaweb on January 2,( The Silver lining in NDC Victory ) "It is now time for the Asantes (plus other Akans) and the Ewes to reconcile. The Asantehene and the Okyenhene on one hand, and the Awoamefia and the Agbogbomefia on the other hand must call a truce and sue for peace. Ghana must seek peace between Asantes (and other Akans) and Ewes as a first step. This is absolutely crucial. Let us seek first ethnic and national harmony and all other progress we seek shall be ours! (Sorry Osagyefo)".
The only good coming from this unfortunate article from Yaw, and the comments on it, are the cacophony of of prejudices, half truths, unsubstatiated opinions and downright lies that have been openly displayed. Perhaps we need to air all these stupidities before we can see how disaterous this is to our nation!

Stop this nonsense Yaw. Stop creating the impression as if Ewe's are the only tribes who practice tribalism. I had a very close friend about some years ago in Accra. He was an Asante and I was an Ewe. One day to my surprise and shock, this Asante friend told me that his relatives, who knew we were friends, warned him to be careful and to stop making friends with me, because an Asante and Ewe can not be friends. This is how bad it is.Please stop blaming Ewe's alone for this stupidity. Where were you, when Rawlings appointed Nana Akuaku Sarpong, Agogohene as a minister of state for several years. I have heard no Ashanti complained about this appointment,and yet when Togbe Afede Asor was rumored to be made minister of finance, all hell broke loose. where is the justice and fairness in this, and yet you accuse Ewe's as tribalist?

Yaw I admire your lecture. Ewes are only about 13% of Ghana population why do you akans give them so much power by not doing the right thing-following all the comments on the web the akans seem to talk about as the cause of their woes but when i researched as not being a Gahanaian, i realised the akans fear Ewe domination as they seem to be the honest tribe of ghana and Ewes seem to challenge wrong doing. since the recent Ghana election which i have been following as i intend to settle in ghana i have been asking myself why every akan are talking about Ewes who i do not know much about; being an american most gahanaians i come into contact with are akans; then i researched about the tribe and their history and realised that Ewes are one of the tribes of Ghana and only form a small %. after that i have been searching for an Ewe and should i settle in ghana i think i will be settling in their land because they seem to be interesting and strong in nature and will want to know more about them. before this election my intention is to settle in kumasi because that is the town most of us know about apart from accra but now i know about keta; ho dahomey etc and also about the vodoo tradition. more interesting than gold.

I am Ewe, and my family like many others in Northern Volta Region has always been UP supporters. Why? because the UP advocated for a Federation during the first republic and our people liked that.(But in hindsight, this is the first evidence of Ashanti greed) Although it didn't work out we stuck to UP/NPP ideals out of loyalty. Apart from the new generation who do not know of what happened during the first republic, detention, exile, etc., there are many UP/NPP supporters in the Volta Region. If not, how did NPP got all those votes in the region?. Rawlings came to power but did not do anything for the Volta Region particularly the Northern part because he is not tribalistic! Many of us still do not support him and rightly so because crumbling infrastructure in the region. Now we know why. He was bent on pleasing the Ashantis. Why? They have most of the resources - cocoa, timber, gold etc. But that's not how it works in a democratic unitary system. He didn't realized that you are greedy bunch of people even your history says so, who can never be satisfied. Dan Botwe's criticism of Kufour has nothing to do with democracy, it has to do with how much is in it for him. Stop your childish unintellectual take on what you think you know about Ewes. Traveling in Africa, I often meet other nationalities who ask me why do the Ashantis feel superior in your country? I usually tell them I don't know why, but just look at their Culinary (gastronomy)life, and tell me if you think they are really superior because you are what you eat! In the eyes of all other Ghanaian ethnic groups Ashantis are the most dishonest and greedy. Proof?--Kufour's Govt. Even President Nkrumah knew this and therefore did not take nonsense from any of your folks who thinks he has a better agenda in his govt. That's just the fact. Live with it! Or change and embrace others firt buy not writing such ridiculous and retarded article on Ghanaweb!

I am an Anlo and an ex-NPP card-holder;after reading your article, I can conclude without any doubt in my mind whatsoever, that you are one of those hollow-headed and never see anything good in people from the Volta Region. Do you think Rwanda genocide started out of the blues? It is people of your ilks with their hatred for others not belonging to their clans and the preaching of hate among otherwise peace-loving people that started the ethnic cleansing. My brotherly advice to you is to stop beating your silly war drums before it degenerates into an uncontrollable situation. Keep your infantile mind to yourself,you biggot.

I am 100% ewe and have lived in every region. I am into telecommunication and I travel on a regular basis around the country. Please stop this tribalistic garbage. Ewes for one respect every human except those who don't respect them. Please. Stop this. It is distasteful.

Opare-Asamoa Yao, your story is nothing but fabrication agaist the Ewes. ""I will discuss the ‘miawo dede’ philosophy, the ‘proposed’ Ewe hegemony across the coasts of Ghana, Togo and Benin"". The phrase, "Miawo dede" is use among the Ewes to discribe people who are very greedy. So tell me, how could this be use agaist the Ashiantis? You are nothing but a warmonger!!! To hell with your lies.

Shame unto you. Yaw ignoranus stupendous Asamoh. See what you've caused. you've really kicked below the belts of hundreds of people. I've never seen so many people express their disgust at a single article. you should know that issues of tribe and race are so sensitive such as to cause civil wars and it is very unwise to write a derogatory article on this subject.
shame number two goes to Ghanaweb for publishing such a disgusting, disparaging and disdainful article! Don't you censure articles before publishing them?
Final shame goes to all of you who, because of your tribal lineage, have written to concur with the writer. go back and reimburse your parents for the money they wasted on your education.

The Asante Factor

Date: 01-30 12:39 

The Nation Liberation Movement (NLM) which became United Party (UP) and is now National Patriotic Party (NPP) was and is still an Asante issue which is upsetting the development of Ghana. If it has not been for the Asante factor since 1950, Ghana would have been the greatest Nation in Africa, united in everything. Then came Kufour with the "AKAN" deception which divided more instead of uniting the people of Ghana. Our elders and teachers should bring back the book "THE SHORT HISTORY OF THE GOLD COAST (Ghana)" to introduce Ghanaians to our history. War and my language is better than yours will not lead anywhere. Working together and living as one people is what builds a nation and not I am Asante and therefore I am better than you because you are Ewe, Fante or Ga syndrome. May God help us to be One Nation, One People. God Bless Ghana.

To begin with I'm a Ga and grew up in Accra and most of my friends where Akans and Ewes. Not until these elections i didnt know ewes are this tribalistic. we have come this far and i think we have to wake up and call a spade a spade
I'm currently residing outside the country and one thing that puzzles Nigerians is that, what is it about Ghanaians. All you got to do is tell them someone is a Ghanaian and they will hook up irrespective of tribe. Ga people in this part of the world celebrates Homowo festival and believe it or not everyone attends. one funny thing is when you attend certain gatherings they bring people around just to show off they know some folks from other tribes. lets learn to love eachother life is too short.
Picking Out The Juicy Spots?
Author: CYBERCOP
Date: 01-30 12:27 

I do not have to tell you nothing about my backround other than that I am a Ghanaian. The fact you initiated this "conversation" does not give you the right to control how we, the readership, respond to it. Nevertheless, I would point out that elsewhere, and prior to your piece, I had mentioned my background. It is not expedient for the sake of objectivity to reveal one's background everytime one wants to respond to an Article posted here. This is a Public forum, not a restricted Website for a Private Club. The fallacy that if one presumably declares one's backround before commenting, augments the credibility in one's assertion is so ludicrous.

If you are so glued to that fallacy, then you are being just naive. People come on this forum all the time pretending to be others. They could specifically indicate in their writings that they belong somewhere, in addition to the pseudonyms most of us prefer to use to shield our real identity, for various reasons. So, you should just be satisfied with whatever identity that people present their ideas with, and consider rather more the contents of their message. It is the message that matters most.

Now, having said that, your Article is in no uncertain terms grossly and indecently stereoptypical, no matter how you try to deny the undercurrent characterization. Whether you really intended it that way is another question. But I, for one, would submit that if you are really not Tribalistic, then you are just simply socially immature and in that case, deserve to be forgiven for any offensive assertions made against the Ewes.

If you insist that it is some natural trait in you that you speak-as-a-matter-of-fact(ly), as you claim to be, you still have not learnt how to use that trait correctly. To blatantly ignore facts and spew tarnishing remarks against a whole group of people, without any reasonable exception, is not only puerile but unforgivable malfeasance by an admitted mature person.

Now, getting to your facts. First of all, an instance or two examples you gave do not adequately support your blanket Charaterization of Ewes. Regarding your specific examples, I would say there many more similar attitudes seen with Asantes, too. Back in our villages and hometowns in Ashanti, many people always denounce someone marrying to an Ewe or a Northerner. Would you deny that? I have been to schools where Asante Students had ridiculed other non-Asantes just for the language the others speak differently. Do you deny that? I do not know how you are, chum. But, go ask Mr. Agyemang Badu of Ghana Black Star fame, and a former Brong Ahafo United Soccer giant. And he would tell you how unwarranted hatred of him by so many Asantes jeopardized his life during a Soccer match in Kumasi. Do you wanna know more, Brongs could hardly visit or even travel through Kumasi for fear of exposing themselves with their speech. What would you say about that? Check this forum for a Pseudonym or Name "SARPONG" and you would find numerous disparaging remarks affecting the People of Tuobodom in the Brong Ahafo Region and its extended implications on the Brongs. That particular "SARPONG" claimed to be an Asante. Could you check with him how he came to learn and cling on to such epithets?

I have encounted thousands of Asantes who intuitively have made remarks like, "Aden, wo ye tani anaa?" Remarks like "Wo yonko ne me, tani a ete se wo!" Others like "Awunani kwasea, wo see ne hwan a ...?" These remarks are endemic in the Asante parlance. And it is not by accident that people grow up learning them. As most Asantes remain untainted with these uncouth, socially primitive attacks, many still use them. And there is no doubt that they use such insults out of some perceived sense of superiority or inferiority, depending on which angle you are looking at it.

Therefore, singling the Ewes out as the only people that practice discrimination against the Asantes is totally false. If you are implying that the Ewes have set Asantes alone as the targets for their reciprocal indecent attacks or discrimination in Elections, check the Elections results again.

When a prominent, indisputably, Nationally acknowledged Asante leader Publicly calls the whole Ewe tribe as Inward Looking, and no reputable Asante leader raises an objection to such kind of language, are you surpised why many Ewes would not choose an Asante for their President? Why are you not acknowledging that the evils of Tribal discrimination, at least on this forum, has been displayed by both Asantes and Ewes?

I would also point out to that Major Kwasigah, who was the Health Minister in Kufuor's Administration for a long time, could most likely have voted NPP. It is most logical to expect him to do so, since he was a well-known anti-NDC. And yet, Kwasigah is an Ewe. So, that alone could shoot down your illogical conclusive claim that Ewes never votes for Asante/Akyem Candidates.

You also lied about the opposition to UNIGOV. You do not have all the data on how Ewes have voted over the years, to make that generalization. When Afrifah came to power, many Ewes were with him. You might say that is because they had Kotoka, an Ewe on his side. Well, Rawlings is married to an Asante, but that does that change how many see him in this shameful Tribal feud?

And I also think you have intentionally ignore your own biases and those of the many Asantes who had, for years and especially leading to the-just-gone-by elections, villified the Ewes without exceptions and for no apparent reason other than their hatred for Rawlings.

No matter how anyone tries to see the objectivity in your Article, it still falls way short of it. You do not seem to be well traveled at all. Not even around Ghana. You seem to be very green or simply faking neutrality to persuade your implied insults to a whole Tribe go unchallenged, or less so. But such a charade for your atrocious characterization can't stand unnoticed.

Let us see you write about "The Asante Factor In The Political Discourse of Ghana" and find out what you put in there.

Lastly, supposing your allegations of general Ewe dislike for Asante is true, have tried to out why that could be so? Obviously, there could be a reason for them to be so hateful of Asantes. And if you have not done so, yet, then you have made a very big mistake in Journalism, not that I believe you are any reputable Journalist. Once we attempt to put stuff here to be published, we become some amateur Journalists. But whatever we are, we owe the Public fundamental fairness and honesty. Okoampa-Ahoofe, for example, I believe retains some miniscule of dignity in admitting his hatred for Ewes. So when he writes to insult them, it would be expected and people can respond to accordingly. You, on the other hand, are deftly endeavoring to appear neutral and objective while you blatantly fail to put all the available facts on the table for exhaustive discussion.

I can only say at this point that you are either a pathological Tribalistic hater of Ewes or a pitiful, naive, immature and ignorant person that is attempting to appear intelligent and philosophical.

You may have to sit back and think more about the other presentations that you hinted you were going to follow this Article up with. We are all watching and waiting!!!

There is a growing chasm in our Social interactions with other Tribes lately that I and many others attribute to such Articles like yours. Many have suggested various reasons for that including the suggestion that the emergence of NPP at the Controls of our National leadership encouraged, and facilitated people that had pent-up hatred for Rawlings and always hoped for revenge on him. Such people became more potent in the quest for that revenge and sought to garner a big Tribal consensus in the Ashanti Region to move their goal forward. But the results in the past Elections reveal that in 8 out of our 10 Regions, people do not embrace such Tribal divisiveness and chose to vote against the NPP to avoid a catastrophic Tribal incident that could plunge us into a Civil War.

Long Live Ghana!

you said " She then went ahead to tell him that right from infancy, they (Ewes) are told to dislike the Akan and hate the Asante in particular Now those who would want to call the woman a liar can go ahead. Those who may want to say that this applied only to her family may also do so."
this is a writing of someone with criminal intention. i find it quite disturbing for someone like me who is an Ewe with Akan in laws. Please don't generalize entire ethnic group as evil because of politics. Should i draw a conclusion when the British said Akans are criminals? Absolutely not. AFRC killed Ewes also. AFRC was led by Rawlings and Boakye Djan an Akan. And you think Boakye Djan will not take revenge after Afrifa killed Yaboah and co. Please read and investigate a little bit of Ghana's history. That will help.

Hi Yaw,

incidentally i am also Yaw. i am a full blooded Ewe from top to bottom.
I don't intend challenge what you have written. Believe you me there are a whole lot of inaccuracies in there.If we were all to start giving instances where some person from a tribe has done something wrong as a proof that the whole tribe is bad, no tribe will stand innocent.
I had always argued with those who leveled accusations against Ashantis' until i went for my tertiary education in K.N.U.S.T. The only crime an Ewe guy had to commit was to go certain areas of town that had low numbers of settlers from other regions and believe you me it will take a whole load of grace not to develop hatred for the Ashantis'. Have you ever heard the term 'ayigbeni aboa'?. Well the only place i heard that was in Kumasi.
Don't get me wrong i was born and bred in Accra and i have more Akan and Ga friends than i have Ewe friends.

Let us not go down the road others have gone, tribalism in all shades should be condemned. I don't think you are doing all of us any good with your series.
If you talk to other people who may not necessarily be Ewes, you could get some unquotable phrases about Ashantis. Lets not encourage this. Let us cherish our peace.

we are one people in one nation with one destiny.

CONTINUE HATING EWES

To the writer and all those haters, all I have to say is this; continue hating Ewes and they will also continue hating you. It's a zero-sum game, there is no love lost.

Ewes and ashantis will forever be at loggerheads even though on individual basis they can be friends and even marry each other.

On the larger platform of group identity, these two groups are very distinct in life's philosophy and aspirations.

Ewes don't care what people like Yaw Opare-Asamoa have to say about them. Let's expect this schism to forever exist. That reminds me of a pastor friend of mine (an Ewe) who decided to marry his ashanti girlfriend. Guess what? The girls family objected because they don't like the guy's surname. They eventually got married and everything is fine.

If there is a problem between Ewes and Ashanti's ask JJ and his ill advisers.Ashanti Region is bigger in size,population,natural resourses etc than Volta Region.Divide and rule for selfish ends has brought this war of words.Go to Atimpoku and see matters for yourself. I would not comment.There is no hatred against Ewes afterall how many Ashantis want to be EWE or reverse visa.Ashanti's want to be compared with white people with higher achievers and not Ewes.Remember Victor Owusu who have friends in Volta and said some are inward looking people.JJ was in better position to promote the relationship between them and yet choose to divide them for selfish ends.Look at President Obama promoting love among all kinds of people in American and beyond.What you sow you shall reap.One Ewe said that they should wipe out the Ashantis.Sad comment.ReaD HISTORY ABOUT THE Ashantis, even woman can fight.Ashantis stood up against Kutu Achampong who was an Ashanti when they felt he is not doing right things.How many Ewes can stand up and tell Rawlings the

direction he is leading the Ewes is dangerous for future.The composition of cabinets minities in Kuffour govt. might be small probably due to the size of the region.But rember during JJ time Bank OF GHANA GOVERNOR,Defence Minister,Interior,IGP,and all key positions were Ewes.Remember and Ewe killed all top Ghanaian ex-presidents and top high court judges.Becareful to defend these people for they are sowing a bad seed.JJ is very rich please compare 1979 to now.He is not poor but most Ewes will buy whatever he tells them unlike ASHANTIS TO Kutu Achampong.Ashantis face facts and honest in this regards.Do not follow the master all the time.I feel sad if people think that Ashantis are competing with Ewes.Go to Kumasi all the buildings are built by individual hardworking people.Look at our cocoa farms. gold at Obuasi etc.Many, many Ewes are in Ashanti and yet trying to destroy the very people who give land and work to his people. No Govt can destroy Ashantis.God bless Ghana.

My brother, we appreciate your efforts in bringing to the fore the diabolic nature of these cocroaches from the eweland. It is so pity that some of our brothers and sisters still entertain these second hand human beings from the eweland. I think it is indeed, high time we revenged against these inward looking poor people so that they become convinced of our superiority over them once and for all. It is in the light of this that I call on all Asantes to hate, discriminate, treat with contempt, kill them if necessary with immediate effect. Diabolic ewe always deceive themselves into thinking that they are more educated or should I say attend school more than any other tribe. In fact, I go mad anytime I hear that kind of rubbish. I hope all right-minded readers would help me provide answers to these questions. 1. What is the purpose of education? 2. What are the benefits of being educated? 3. Which region is the most populous and richest in Ghana? 4. Which region has the highest number of basic, secondary, technical, vocational and tertiary institutions in Ghana? 5. Which tribe has the highest number of people at all levels of educational institutions? 6. Going by the adage 'an educated region is a developed region', which two regions in Ghana are well developed? 7. Which reign has produced 3 Heads of State including the ex-President? I think time will not permit me to pose all questions but the few that I have posed here generally tell you that diabolic ewes are no where near Mighty Asantes. Well, if the purpose of education was to produce inferior people, inward looking people, trokosi practitioners, idol worshippers, carpenters, smugglers, criminals like tsatsu, selomey, serial coup makers, bastards like jj, prostitutes like his mum, sellers of keta school boys, alewonyo and yoko gari, stupid, uncouth, tribalists, filthy people with eczema all over their bodies, then I beg to differ. Education should refine people as has happened in Mighty Ashanti Region. It should equip people with skills and wisdom as we see in the business acumen and wisdom in Mighty Asantes. Why do you think that illiterate bastard married Konadu Agyeman and declared Mr. P. V. Obeng, a pure Asante as the most intelligent man in Ghana? We Asantes are not here to compete with these cocroaches else we would just be like them. 'Se ponko bo edam a....' . There is nothing to be competed for. Diabolic ewes are only jealous of Mighty Asantes because of our history, culture, wealth, Powerful Kingdom, Wise King who sits on a Golden Stool, population, unity of purpose, determination to succeed, superiority over them and above all, our wisdom which they lack. It is also funny for them to boast that their tribe man ruled Ghana for 19years when these same idiots claim they practise paternal system of inheritance. Is that bastard's dad an ewe? How many coup d'etats have their people been involved? Again, what prevented any ewe to contest the flagbearership of the competing political parties if their claim of having better education is to be taken seriously? Diabolic ewes are not part of Ghanaians. They became part of Ghana in 1956 courtesy Dr. Nkrumah. God in his wisdom gave them identification marks (eczema) to differentiate them from us due to their misdeeds. Their complexion is nothing to write home about. Their region contributes nothing to our GDP. Just listen to their tonation when they speak Twi or even English. They are wicked, diabolic, blood thirsty people. Be careful with them. They know we are far ahead of them and they can only catch up when all the eczema on their bodies are completely wiped out. Is this possible?
THE EWE IS A TRIBALISTIC HOMO
Author: Koo Dwomo
Date: 01-30 11:07 

My only answer to this issue is that, Akans in general have outgrown tribalism and have embrased or chosen objectivity, while the Ewe see their future in nothing but thier tribe. The Akan modern way of life is a reflection of their democratic chieftaincy institutions, which is absent from the Ewe tribal system. An Ewe proverb sums it all " it takes one to build" as against the Akan proverb, "we build together, if you take one broom stick, you can break it, but you cannot break them all together". The Ewes are rallying around JJ Rawlings in the politics of Ghana today,a reflection of the Ewe proverb, and as soon as JJ is gone, we may not know what the end will be for them in Ghana politics. They may be endangered species in the political minefield of this country. However, a lot may have been destroyed in this nation through the Ewe dictatorship, especially national unity. Over all, Akans are well travelled around the globe, and this add to their objectivity, as against the Ewe who is always domesticated and chasing government jobs in Ghana. The Ewe is a tribalistic homo sapian.

It's even a waste of time commenting on this stupid article, but the writer must know that he is too narrow minded and needs to wake up to see the light of civilization. I am a full blown Ewe and schooled with many people from the Ashanti Region right from elementary school. I have not seen any of these hatred towards the Ashantis that the writer is talking about. Ewes may not vote for NPP, but that is their right. Nobody can force anyone to vote for a specific person, otherwise we don't have a democracy.
Amateurish Article
Author: Babayaro
Date: 01-30 10:53 

Clearly,this article is amateurish since the writer shinningly demonstrates a sheared ignorance about this country's political history in respect to the trend of voting since the birth of Ghana.

When one begins to talk about tribalism in our body politics of Ghana,one must be carefull as one is likely to trade on a very dangerous waters that will sequel to various bashings that are legitimate.Why?Because the one that calls for it does not have fact..

May be a little tutorial from an elderly person will good to you.Have you heard about how Victor Owusu openly and embarassingly insulted the Ewes? Have you not ever witnessed open arrogance,pride and bragging that Akans display anytime they interact with other tribes? Have you not observed how possessive Akans are?Have you not seen how the Akans look down on other tribes? The list is on and on........ You must know that we as Ghanaians , we have a history that resist any form of alteration to favour certain tribes.Thus it is necessary that one puts all this in perspective before one begins to blame a particular tribe for following a particular political tradition.

Have you pondered over why the Ewes voted massively for Dr Kwame Nkrumah though he does not have any biological connection to the Ewes.What of Dr Liman? And now Prez Mills? Most current,Have you seen How the Akan party is marshalling their arsenals to demonize the people of the volta region as violent people during the run-off election although it has been established by CODEO that the volta reion has a reduced incidense of violence as compared to December 7th? It was clear that Ashanti and Eastern regions has the largest incidence of violence but the Akan party keep blaming their woes,perhaps their defeat,on the voltarians.You see, this type of campaign rather deepens the wounds of the voltarians.

I end it here.

I think your piece is one sided because I need to hear about the other side of the issues - how the Akans and the Asantes handle ewe candidates. You alluded to the readers responses in that people are different and have various and different upbringing, brainwashing or whatever. I was never thought a thing about the diffrent tribes in Ghana. I was born in Accra, started school in the Volta Region and continued in the central region befor departing for the US. I will say how we integrate the the various Ghanaian cultures will depend on the presentation of the would-be leaders and people in the high positions. I will say Kwame Nkrumah did a good job in silencing tribal wars and we have to keep up the good work he did in this area.

Yaw you are making a good point but you did not offer any suggestion on how we can avoid that and make sure if Ewes don,t find it compatible to coexist with other tribe members they will never abuse the right of those they see them around.
Yaw, when i was a young in my village in the Central Region any time we saw a northerner or an Ewe we did not welcome him nor did things with because we feared him as a result of some perception that they like juju or kill peopl.
Then when i traveled to Prestea and Obuasi i saw that in the mining communities they did everything together there was no Ewe, Northener or what so ever so i believe that when you travel to where none of your tribe members is there the situation forces you to live happily with those people you meet and that should tell us not to be building ethnic walls in our mist.

Why Not Ghanaian Factor

I don't know for others but I have not seen any objectivity in this article. On what ground are you saying that people from the Volta region have refused to vote for NPP becuse the candidate is an Akan/Asante? How would you speak to the idea of someone who would say that in the Ashanti and Brong Ahafo regions, nobody would ever vote for an Ewe? These are absurd thinkings! Are you saying that Ghanaians can not vote reasonably? If those two heroes really exist (the secretary and the Peki student), if they are not simple figments of your imagination, is that enough to tax ALL EWES with Asante-hunting? How objective are you in your analysis when implying that that negative assertion cannot apply only to her family? Oh please! There are black sheep in every grouping, every family, every community, every tribe! No sensible person can smear a group because of the sins of individuals from that group! Such an article certainly does not "work for national cohesion". The title only tells a lot about your commitment to that national cohesion. I never knew there was an "Ewe Factor"! Neither have I heard of Dagomba Factor, or Asante Factor, or any other tribe-based factor! I only knew of "Ghanaian Factor" in Ghana. You are bringing a new dimension to the issue of national development. In any case, the Ohenes are a proof that people can "vote Akan/Akyem/Asante" in the Volta region. Why strive to insert tribalism in our politics?Please stop that!

Opare-Asamoa;
You got to read the article by my brother John K. Akpalu LLM (Harvard) wrote on Ghanaweb stating that Kuffour and Akuffo-Addo deserve credit for the peaceful handover. We are 100% Ewes but you will see the open-mindedness in the said article.
In the area that we call Ghana today, the Ashantes once and still tried to be hegemonious, this is history and current affairs. The Ewes fearing the terrible suffering they once endured under a powerful king, Agorkoli, did/do all they can to thwart any desire by Ashantes to establish their hegemony. In years gone by, there were convenants of peace between the Ashantes and Ewes. But as you know there were deceits in adhering to those convenants. Which the Ewes said was due to deceitful practices by the Ashantes: I do not know the Ashantes version and hope honest discussions of this nature will lead those who know this history to bring it out.
So in short, this animosity between Ewes and Ashantes was ancient but still continues with us. Like fighting camps, each camp seek allies: what we call in the military term tactical engagement. That is the background of Ashantes and Ewes fight - the Volta and Ashanti region viruses you see today and hence the need for you and I to write on the Ghanaweb.
I want to keep it short. I do not do party politics, so I will not comment on other political issues raised by you.
So in the face of today's reality, a global village of 7000 million people, Ghana being 20 million, that is 0.3% of world's population: does it really make sense for us to continue those ancient animosity for a hegemony in our very small corner? Keep thinking about it. Lest I forget, my wife is a Zulu. So Zulus and Xhosas are also wickedly dealing it out to each other, thus the Zuma and Mbeki sagas. So we are not alone, cheer up.

Yaw's Anti-Ewe Piece
Author: Kwami Agbodza
Date: 01-30 05:22 

Fo Yaw,

When you come here to talk please tell us things that are either true or that will elevate us.

Statistically, your citing two examples proves nothing. Your two examples can be challenged by mine and those of others. For example, I grew up in a house in Adabraka where cross-ethnic unity and collaboration was very strong. I attended BIHECO where Akans were loved just like any other ethnic group. So your examples, prove nothing statistically.

Do Ewes hates Ashantis? No evidence has ever been produced to demonstrate this. Do Ashantis hate Ewes? Same as for supposedly ewe-hatred.

This "Miawo dede" philosophy is new to some of us. Is this another version of "Nyebroism" or "Inward-looking Ewes"? If it is then we can all breath easily. Ewes have no monopoly over inward-lookingness. Every ethnic group has it to some extent. This includes "blutorwo".

But then the assertion that criticsim whether constructive or destructive is the soul of democracy is astounding. Indeed it is not even true.

The violence that accompanied anti-UNIGOV dissent and criticism is not democratic. To say it is and to say the presence of criticism is a sign of democracy is fallacious.

Some even say Rawlings is not criticised by Ewes when Ewes do criticise him and disagree with him.

Anyway say what you like. It proves nothing. You are not an Ewe. So you cannot speak for us.

When you point figures at us, one also points at you.

We Ewes will certainly defend ourself with all the might and power we have.

We are not ready to be exterminated yet. When we are we shall tell you.

We know that this piece of yours is all part of the Okoampa-Ahoofe conspiracy to create the grounds for the planned extermination of Ewes like the Hutu-Tutsi Rwandan event.

Your anti-Ewe plans will not succeed. But go ahead and tell what you have to say. We shall also respond appropriately without fear or favour.

Author: manju
Date: 01-30 04:34 

I hope people will take my comment as coming from a neutral point of view.I am a northerner but the truth is that the Ewes look onto their own first in everything. They have a complex to deal with if it has to stop. This is the reason people run away from them when we were young growing up in the north.By the way the behaved we were made to believe they will kill you, eat you up and use your head to drink pito. This was common in the north and parents will use that to deter ther children fron oversataying outside the house, especially during the Yulitude.Every Notherner over 30 year might have heard this.This impression has to change, but unfortunately recent events are not giving any hope of change. I guess the Ashantis are not liked by them in particular because they are business-like and enterprising.They also abound in a region that produces a greater part of the natural resources of the nation.
We the northerners should be laft out of any plan to knock our heads against any tribe in the country. For us We are created equal and in the image of God so we have no complex, unless a few who are being decieved into this whole issue. Northerners,please wake up.

You have had it wrong. The fact that one expressed his or her opinion does not mean all ewes are like that. The notion that the Ashantis are the better people to rule this country is what is disturbing. Bear it in mind that within the UP tradition, the only people that can be in the helm of affairs are ashantis and the akyims. Not even a notherner will be voted to lead the NPP. Leave us alone and stop the blame game. The more you talk about this the more you alienate the ewes from you. I know we are poor as one of your top men put it "even many of them were not wearing sandals. Mind your language and it will be better.

Yaw Opare-Asamoa, first of all, your claim to Ga descent vis a vis the gabbage you poured out on the web revulses me. Which of the Ga families do you come from? Gas do not promote tribal hatred the way you sought to do with your stinking article produced from a psychotic brain. Be reminded that anyone can sight spurious examples to support a prejudiced position such as yours. What do some of you take Ghanaians for? Why can't you accept the defeat of the NPP and think of how to strategise for the next election, come 2012? When people are calling for reconciliation and unity for the purpose of national development, some of you supporters of an arrogant, self-seeking and thieving party have decided to widen the inimical tribal chasm to the detriment of this noble country. What is wrong with you? To hell with your divisive propaganda. By the way, when you write to promote division in this country, please leave us (Gas) out!!!

Your article is not worthy of any serious comment. If you want us to contibute our opinions in a debate then you must assume a neutral non-biased stance. With an article as this one can only "hit" back as most comments here show. Next time please discuss your articles with a few friends of yours who know no bias and come out with analyses of problems which can help Ghana and Ghanaians. In short your article lacks seriousness, is full of falacy and a waste of time for those who take their time to read it.

I am a citizen of Ghana born in the volta region. I strongly believe what honourable citizens of this beloved country should be thinking of in the 21st century is, how can we put this tribal differences behind us and forge ahead in building this great country for our children, instead of focusing on tribe, which is not only pulling us back but wasting our preciou time and energy. Stop and think about this. Long live Ghana our beloved home

EWES HATE ASHANTIS

Very one-sided article

How could you be so partial? What about Ashantis voting only for NPP candidates? Mills is an Akan, yet Ashantis did not vote for him. Why? Simply because Mills stood for a party founded by a man from the Vota Region, whose wife is an Ashanti.

The results of the second round of elections shows that the NDC has a less tribal appeal than the NPP. Eight out of ten regions preferred NDC. Even in Eastern Region Mills won over 40% because it is not a homogenous tribal region like the Ashanti. Volta Region also has many other tribes, not all of them Ewes.
Rawlings would not have married to an Akan if he was tribal. He certainly would not remain married to Nana Konadu if Rawlings had the same attitude as many Ashantis.

It is very logical to say that NDC had at least a 25% input from the start looking at how outspoken Nana Konadu is.

It is shameful of you to blame the Volta Region of tribalism while ignoring a far worse problem in Ashantis.

It is well know that if someone moves from the North or Volta Region to an Akan area, even after the 5th or 10th generation, they are still called "foriegners". Even Krobos moving from their native land to Akyem area remain forever unaccepted, and find it more difficult to integrate than I did when I came to Europe as a Blackman.

The most tribal area of Ghana is that Ashanti Region and Akyem part of Eastern Region. Of course if your little friend who went to Peki went with the attitude that she was superior to the other students then she would not enjoy her stay there. But on the whole, the seconadry schools in Ghana did not use to be tribal.

I am disappointed by the partiality displayed. You are one of those dividing Ghana and gradually driving us into a future crisis.
Thank God NPP is gone. I hope Mills will show to all that NDC is not about Volta Region but about Ghana.

Ewes in 8 regions?
Author: MacBride
Date: 01-30 02:59 

Apart from Ashanti Region & Eastern Region, Nana Akufo Addo lost in all the other regions. Either the Ewes have occupied the other 8 regions or they managed to get the rest of the country to vote for Prof Mills. It's an insult to the rest of the country to ask "who has been telling XXX......".

Prof Mills (a Fante) has a Kusasi from Bawka as his spokesperson, an Akan as Minister of Finance, a Dagomba as Mins of Foreign Affairs, An Akan (not sure where Gen Smith comes from) as Mins of Defence, the wife of a Walla man as Minister of Justice, a Ga woman as Minister of Trade, A Nabdam as Minsiter of Water REsources, Works and Housing, A Fante as Minister of Health, A Ga a Minsiter of Information, etc. etc. I suppose Mr. Alex Tetteh-Enyo is an Ewe. Show me this level of diversity with the NPP Gov't. The former President named his junior brother, a medical doctor, as Minister of Defence and nobody talked.

You managed to twist the story not to say Ewes voted for a Fante man but that they voted for the party founded by an Ewe.

This kind of whipping of tribal sentiments must be stopped.

Nonsensical tribalistic diatribe! The inverse also applies where Ashantis discriminate against Ewes. Secondly if the NDC is fighting, it keeps it in-house. It is greed that makes the NPP was their dirty linen in public. Opare-Asamoa should hang himself in shame for writing such a divisive article. The NPP lost the election in 8 regions. How many of them were Ewe regions. In Ghana, elections are not won, they are lost. the last election was a vote of no confidence in the NPP for the narcokleptocratic manner in which they had pillaged our country for the past 8 years.

Ashanti-Akyem 'Lucifer Effect'
Author: Newlove Papavi

Ashanti-Akyem ‘The Lucifer Effect’ Threat to National Unity

Understanding How Good People Turn Evil. This transformation of human character is what is call the "Lucifer Effect," named after God's favourite angel, Lucifer, who fell from grace and ultimately became Satan.
How and why did this transformation take place, and what does it tell us about recent events such as the Tsatsu Tsikata imprisonment , Nana Konadu trial, The killing of 30 women, the death of Ya-Na Yakubu Andani, Overlord of Dagbon, the brutality inflicted on Prez John Atta Mills camera man and JJ Rawlings personal guard in the presence of Akufo-Addo, Kufour and Ashantehene and others? Equally important, what does it say about the "nature of human nature," and what does it suggest about effective ways to prevent such abuses in the future?
If these people claimed to be true democrats, then their characters have been transformed to what is called the ‘Lucifer Effect’. Ghana has been in a socially painful crisis before without a civil war (Afrifa conspiracy); but a future inter-ethnic civil war can’t be rule out. Signs of these are already surfacing with the open call by some misguided backward conservative Ashantis intellectuals drumming for the extermination of Ewes.
Evil is the exercise of power to intentionally harm (psychologically), hurt (physically), or destroy (mortally or spiritually) others.
The Ashanti-Akyem UP Matemeho brand (NPP) - because of their size and constant attempt to use Fantis and Brongs (Such attempts to influence attitudes, values or actions are considered forms of persuasive communication. ”Do as I say,” is its motto. When they are politically motivated with a bias toward a politically relevant action such messages are considered propaganda) is a definite security threat to Ghana’s national unity.
I don't think what's in Ashanti-Akyem’s heads is going to change until the environment that places these things in their head has changed," Greenwald said.
Ashantehene Kweku Duah gave orders to Ashantis through the paramount chiefs to beat drums to summon all Ashantis to vote massively. Methodist Rev. Asante Antwi and the Catholic Bishop Akwasi Sarpong reinforced the Dankwa Busia Club’s anti-Rawlings rhetoric at some of their meetings.
Their chiefs and Rev. Ministers can also have a big influence, experts say. Related work by Dunn shows that if their chiefs have positive attitudes towards the southerners and northerners, and they have good relationships with their children, then the children will grow up and develop more positive attitudes towards those from the south and the north too
Please join me in a journey that the poet Milton might describe as making “darkness visible.” Kuffour also not holding usual cabinet meetings was a cause for concern, however regular meetings were held at Manhyia Palace where the country was rule from. Although it is often hard to read about evil up close and personal, we must understand its causes in order to contain and transform it through wise decisions and innovative communal actions. Indeed, in my view, there is more urgent task that faces us today as this NPP (sword of Damocles) could come back, even if it will take more than twenty years they will still come back. This is because Satan has always come back in different forms.
In the Lucifer Effect I examined how social situations lead ordinary people to commit unimaginable acts of violence, discrimination, and indifference to the suffering of others as shown in 8 years Kufour crimes in the Volta Region, Ga chieftancy manipulation and others. Take, for instance, the ongoing vilification of the Volta Region by Nana Akuffo Addo, Okoampa-Ahoofe (foul-mouthed writer), Nana Amankwaa (pocket PHD holder), Gabby Okyere Darko (the dreamer and self style information minister) and others. Many of us hope that if we were placed in such situations, we would be the courageous ones who resist unjust authority, who are immune to compliance tactics, and who never abandon our core beliefs and principles in the face of social pressures. However, the reality is we can never predict our actions without being placed in similar situations. This is one of the recurring themes of “The Lucifer Effect” and something that should not be lost on us as we make everyday decisions.
Indeed, even without being placed in the heat of war, the inhumanity of prisons, or the clutches of social psychologists, our daily lives are wrought with similarly compelling social tensions. This as a springboard for learning how unwanted and unjust influence can impact your daily life and to better equip you to resist these forces. By understanding the contexts of influence and social compliance, become familiar with significant experimental findings from social psychological research, along with some basic terminology, I hope Prez John Atta Mills will become more proficient in identifying common social influence principles and the strategies that professional agents of influence may use to gain his compliance.
The advice to NDC is to consolidate this seeming temporary national unity resolution in their favour for macro-stability and macro-security. To maintain the momentum and to guarantee an election victory 2012 and beyond requires an encircling strategy against NPP as a national “call to duty” Boakye-Djan.
The only way in which NDC can disrob itself of the Rawlings umbrella is if it metamorphosed into CPP cock which is the only intrinsic national party by nature that is not seen as linked to any particular ethnicity.

Very simplistic not convincing
Author: J. B. Danquah
Date: 01-30 01:43 

The issue of the tribal nature of electioneering must be discussed by all of us so that we can find common solutions to them. But such discussions need to be well informed and well-thought out not this kind of simplistic arguments you adduce.

FACTS: no Ewe is brought up to hate a Twi or Ashanti. There are many Twis who come to school in the VR. They are in the minority there and as school pranks go everywhere, they may be teased good naturedly some time but to say there is a widespread hatred of them is to be diabolical in your intentions. A similar thing happens to the many Ewes who go to schools in the Twi speaking areas. They too cannot say they were hated for being Ewes.

There are historical reasons why Ewes, from the 2nd Republic onwards, would not vote for Twis. In the 50s and the Nkrumah regime, Ewes voted for Twis and many Ewes, especially those opposing Nkrumah, voted massively for Danquah.

Today, it is very clear that the Ewes do not want an Ashanti-Twi hegemony in Ghana and they see the Busia-Danquah tradition as trying to impose that on Ghana. The overwhelming evidence for that is the fact that NPP and the tradition CANNOT choose a non-native Twi speaker as leader. The day the NPP chooses somebody who is not Akan as flagbearer, that person may not get majority votes in the VR but will surely get more than Akufo Addo got. The Ewes clearly do not think they are the best tribe in Ghana and must rule always. But they think Ashantis think they (Ashantis) are the best and must rule always. That is what the Ewes hate and that is why they voted against Akufo-Addo. After all, an Ashanti man ruled for 8 years. There is nothing wrong with that but must it always be Ashanti or Akyem? No, that will be a recipe for a Kenya in Ghana and we don't want that.

Do not forget too that Akufo-Addo got 15% of the VR votes in the first round and 14% in the run-off. It is not as if he got nothing there.

What happened with Ohene's brother is a criminal act which must be thoroughly investigated and severely punished. It surely can happen in Ashanti and Eastern Regions too. Don't tell us it can't happen there.

What is needed is for all the parties in Ghana to be truly national in scope and for NPP, it means they should also try to choose a northerner, Ewe, Ga, Krobo as flagbearer and not limit that post to only Twis.

Spare us your other articles if you can't come up with more sophisticated arguments that get down to the true roots of the problem and can lead to practical solutions.
What a hypocritical article

In the United States, States such as California have always voted for Democrates but no one calls them names. You can give example that an Ewe woman told her boss she was taught to hate Ashantis. I wonder where you had that from. All that you have shown in this article is your hatred towards Ewes. Someones parents, who were Ashantis threaten to disown her because she wanted to marry an Ewe. Ghana is one country. Stop preaching hate messages and let's move forward as one people. What you have also portrayed in your article is this culture of superiority which you feel as an Ashanti and think that no one has a right to challenge it. Go deep into yourself and purge your soul of this hatred.
In the last election. Ashantis who supported NDC in Kumasi and were polling station agents were also assaulted by some their own Ashanti kith and kin. Search your soul and stop spewing this stupid lyrics.

Stop spewing such garbage on the forum. Some of you people are good for nothing. Please in the name of politics do not try and malign the ewes, infact the recent elections indicates clearly that the NPP does not really have the broad support of Ghanaians as the results show, is it only the ewes that voted NPP.

The lies are not shameful because by thier fruits you will know them. What is most shameful is that a lot of Ghanaians will believe all these lies --look at how they voted.
I have travelled all over the country and I find the ASHANTIS most accommodating, but sorry that is not what Ghanaians want. If prominent men from the North or Volta region were lined up and murdered in cold blood as JJ did to Ashantis-------
