The author of an English textbook, whose photos have been circulating on social media for days has come under fire for stereotyping the Ewe tribe.

A sentence in the book has suggested that Ewes are juju men or worshippers of smaller gods. This suggestion didn’t go down well with a cross-section of Ghanaians, mostly Ewes who have expressed their dissatisfaction with the contents of the book.

The controversial sentence reads: “Efo agreed and prepared juju for the players.” Efo is a widely used name for Ewe men in Ghana.

The situation has gotten to the attention of Gbevu nation President Ayigbe Eden who is an Ewe himself. As expected, he jumped to the defense of his tribesmen.
