Reasons why the Ga Language was imposed on the Krobo (Dangme) by the Early Missionaries

Literacy, as conveyed by the Basel mission, provided Krobo (Dangme) scholars with the means to publish powerful histories fostering Klo (Dangme ) identity and statehood. (Vail 1989:12-12, Harries :1989: 82-1A). Yet the language they used was not their own but that of their Ga - neighbours. (Azu: 1929a : Odonkor : 1973, Sikapa: 1937).
