Ghana. In September, a National Reconciliation Commission began work on investigating human rights violations under the previous military rule. In the period 1981–93 alone, at least 155 people were executed and a few hundred disappeared. The Commission will work for a year and can recommend damages to victims of the dictatorship. According to Countryaah website, the kingdom of Dagomba king Yakubu Andani II and another at least 40 people were killed when a rival clan attacked the palace in the city of Yendi in northern G. in March. The massacre led to the resignation of two ministers in the G government. A nicer news from G's traditional kingdom came in August, when the country's big son Kofi Annan, UN Secretary-General, was awarded royal rank in Ashanti, the most powerful empire of the colonial era and still culturally influential.
