Representatives of Konkombas and Bimobas in the Northern Region of Ghana have agreed not to use violence but rather resort to dialogue to settle their differences from now on.
The representatives of the two tribes reached this conclusion and issued a communiqué to that effect, at a one-day meeting in Tamale with other stakeholders, under the facilitation of the West Africa Network for Peacekeeping (WANEP).
The meeting was towards the resolution of issues that arose between the people of the two tribes as a result of the Kpemale conflict, which claimed precious lives from the two tribes and injured and dispersed many from the two areas.
“We have mutually agreed to end the violence immediately and ensure that peace holds. We will meet our people to prevail on them to end the violence…We are aware that we have made appreciable progress despite the recent violence and therefore renew our collective commitment and dedication to the search for sustainable and lasting peace in our area and pledge to work tirelessly to build a peaceful relationship among us,” the communiqué noted.
The two tribes have called on the government and all well meaning stakeholders to support the process towards healing and uniting their people, by providing an enabling environment and the needed funding.
The tribes commended WANEP and other stakeholders for their various roles toward achieving sustainable peace in their communities. A total of 23 people signed the communiqué, including the District Chief Executive for Bunkpurugu-Yunyoo, Philip Laari, and the District Chief Executive for East Mamprusi, Adam Imoro.
