Zongo Community in Hohoe to return to Hohoe but not to go on with usual business


The Gbi Traditional Council of Hohoe Municipality today held a media briefing on the attitude of the zongo returnee.

Following the recent clash in the hohoe municipality, a huge percentage of the Zongo Community fled to the neighboring village including, Jasika, kpando, Kejebi and Worawora.

In October this year, when the president of Ghana,??His Excellence John Mahama visited Hohoe as part of his campaign tour,??the Paramount Chief of the Gbi Traditional area, Togbega Gabusu VI, had called for the return of the residents of the Zongo community who fled the town during the clashes.

But, his call according to him is to prevent the led residents from being disenfranchised in the upcoming elections.

However , the zongo community has started moving about with their normal activities, such as selling and also resetting up their shops that were burnt during the clashes. Unfortuhnately, some natives have already occupy some of the old business places, thus??leading to intimidating and misunderstanding between the zongo community and indigenes. Some members of the zongo communities then try to sack the indigenes from their business places.

The Gbi traditional Council therefore held a media briefing today stating that, the zongo community was asked to return home but not to their normal business places.

He said some the zongo community has committed a very great harm against the Gbi state, they have attack the paramount chief?s palace by burning his properties, the regalia has also been stolen,??the destroyed items have not yet been retrieved.

He said the Gbi traditional council is awaiting the reports the?recent seven-member committee??set up by government to investigate into the matter, before they can allow the zongo people to fully operate in??the Gbi traditional area.??He made mention of how they have displace the Paramount chief because, there is no recognized place you can meet the paramount chief and discuss important issues with him.
