Ewe history book is launched

Ho, Aug. 15, GNA - A 160-page book on the history of Ewes was launched in Ho on Wednesday.

The book titled " Ewe Duko" (Ewe state) is to enlighten the public on the culture of Ewes and the true identity of the Ewes. Reviewing the book Mr Walter Blege, President of the Evangelical Presbyterian University, said there was the need for more Ewe literature to enable the youth to discover their roots.

He said many Ewe children were ignorant of where they came from, where they were and where they were heading towards and urged parents to buy the "Ewe Duko" which talked about who the Ewes really are. Mr Blege said the book talked about the Ewes as a state in Africa with many natural and human resources and appealed to all Ewes to read the book.

Launching the book Mr Raymond Okudjeto, President of Volta Foundation, a non-governmental organisation, advised Ewes to unite and build the Eweland to achieve its socio-economic development. The writer, Mr Charles Kwame Kudzordzi, called for support to build the Ewe language and state into a strong one. The first copy of the book was bought for GHC 200.
