  1. The Hamile border town in the Lambussie District of the Upper West Region is settled on land belonging to the Sissala people of Hapaa in the Lambussie District. The controversy surrounding this was finally settled by Governor Sir Charles Noble Arden Clerk in early 1952. As a border settlement,it comprises several ethnic groups from the west African subregion namely, the Lobi Dagao and the Moshi from the Former French colony of Upper Volta now Burkina Faso. There are other groups especially the Wala ethnic group from Wa in Ghana. Others are Wangara, Grunsi, even ethnic Sissala from other Sissala villages apart from Hapaa and many more. In fact there are about sixteen ethnic groups now in Hamile. The first non Sissala settler farmer was one Perewere (aka Muor) a Lobi Dagao from a village called Navrikpe in South Western Burkina Faso who approached his Sissala friend by name Charkboi from the Hamile village proper, another Sissala village but in Burkina Faso, for land to settle and cultivate ground nuts. This was after the border was delimited in 1901 between the British and the French. Charkboi, who uncles Hapaa told his friend Perewere aka Muor that the land he was farming on belongs to his Uncle who lives in Hapaa and also farms nearby. Charkboi therefore led his friend Perewere aka Muor to his Uncle in Hapaa where he was given permission to farm groundnuts. Muor was joined by other groups like Zenoga a Moshe also from Burkina Faso ,the Wala traders from Wa in Ghana and later additional groups. There are now about sixteen ethnic groups and still counting in Hamile. There is therefore no Hamile in Ghana. What is referred to as Hamile is in fact Hapaa Zongo. It was called Wabile because of the Wala traders who told the Sissala women folks not to send their wares, the Shea butter and dawadawa to Wa for sale because they represent small Wa in their midst. Wabile simply means small Wa.
