n Institute of African Studies Research Review - Chapter fifteen




Gyub and the other aspiring trainee teachers were sent to Tamale by government transport while for the Lawra children returning to school a passenger truck was hired. So when it was time for us to leave for the school, our illiterate brothers and cousins carried our luggage and accompanied us to Babile where we waited for the arrival of the truck from Lawra. When it did arrive, we bade farewell to our brothers and cousins and then boarded the truck. We arrived at Tamale the next day, and after some hours of shopping in town we left for school towards evening to attend roll-call at 5:30 p.m. Tiisip, Deri and I were going to be in standard seven while Debomo and Sorkumo would be in standard six. As usual, the school posts were distributed to some of the boys deemed to deserve it in the eyes of the school staff. The new boys were allocated to their compounds while some of the old ones were reallocated to others.
