CURFEW IN TAMALE
There is a curfew in Tamale. This is the city where the villages that I am living in and working are. I was going out to meet the Dean for the University of Development Studies and was told that the night before there had been some burning of one of the political offices and tires were burned in the city center. I knew nothing because I don't have a television, sometimes I listen to my telephone radio news. Anyways, the people are disturbed by a court ruling to release 15 people responsible for killing a chief, the main chief of the Dgomba people, (the people who I am studying). The Curfew is from 11pm to 6am. Last night someone was caught out at 4am and beaten as a warning. I heard fromthis from a witness. All is well with me and I am safe.
