Many years ago, the land of Hamile which was a very rich land, had the Sisala to be the landowners.
These sisala’s were also on the land which is now in Burkina Faso. Before the border demarcation, a man called Moa migrated from Mangani across the Black Volta to Hamile.
He prayed the Sissala people to give him land to farm. These people being so good gave Moa the land of Hamile to stay with his family and to farm.
After the border demarcation, the land was segregated and the land they gave to Moa was in Ghana and the Sissala’s were in Burkina Faso. Also, some of the Sissala’s living in Hamile before the demarcation of the border remained in Ghana after the demarcation.
The word Hamile is a Sissala word which means” if you plan evil against us it will reflect back to you”
Recommendations for Further Study
The present study indicates a brief history of Hamile. As recounted above, this study provided little information about the history of Hamile.
