Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)

KONADU-AGYEMANG K. O. ;

Abstract

The case of Kumasi is examined with reference to the reasons adduced by Peil to explain the absence of squatter settlements in West Africa. These reasons may not be tenable in this case, but people's attitude to traditions, customs and beliefs regarding land ownerhsip and the role of spirits of dead ancestors in the affairs of the living may be safeguarding the city against the development of squatter settlements
