In August 2012 the town of Hohoe witnessed violent riots between Christians and the Muslim minority. The residents of „Zongo“ (the so called Muslim area of every town in Ghana) and the Christians attacked each other, inflaming houses and shops. An unspecified number of people died.
One year later Christians and Muslims live side by side again. In Peace. The two communities try to avoid each other as much as possible, allthough apart from their religion, the everyday life of each is not as different as they might like to think.
