Introduction / History

The Chumburung live on either side of the River Volta, west, north, and east of Kete Krachi. They were divided by the waters of the Volta Lake into five isolated districts. The area covered by these five districts is about 2,200 square kilometres. They are mainly farmers with their farms located within a few kilometers of the villages. The crops that they grow are yams, cassava, beans and corn.

The Chumburung are thought to have been located in the present area before 1700. The Gonjas say they were part of the invading army of Ndewura Jakpa. The British subjected the Chumburung to the Gonja chief of Salsga, and when they tried to assert their independence in the early 1930s the Gonja raided a number of Chumburung villages, causing many to flee to the present Volta region. The original colonial boundaries still divide the Chumburung today, and the lake Volta has broken up this people even more dramatically.

There is significant Christian presence in the area with Catholics, The Evangelical Church of Ghana, The Evangelical Presbyterian Church, Church of Pentecost and Seventh Day Adventists all represented. There are hardly any Muslim Chumburung, though in many towns there are communities of Muslim traders who have their own mosques.
