Peace Meetings in Tuobodom
Between January and March, 2017, the Tuobodom Peacemakers Committee (TPMC), a local peace committee convened with the support of the PPP, organized a series of peace meetings to resolve a prolonged chieftaincy dispute between the Krotia and Abromam royal families in Tuobodom, Ghana. The participants discussed possible ways to address the chieftaincy dispute. One peacebuilding strategy that emerged from the meetings is sporting activities to engage and build relationships among youth, including sporting activities that would involve more women. A more immediate upcoming strategy of the TPMC will be a meeting to bring together members from both royal families.
