[The French had to return some worthless rubbish that they stole during colonialism. The Germans had to do the same thing recently. All this equality is a bunch of crap. Jan]

Restoration works on the Djidji Ayôkwé, or "talking drum", have now been completed in Paris. The artifact, stored at the Quai Branly museum, is ready to be returned to Côte d’Ivoire under a restitution plan promised by President Emmanuel Macron, writes Ollia Horton for RFI.

The legendary drum, which once belonged to the Ebrié people, (previously known as the Tchamans), was seized by French colonial settlers in 1916. It had been used to warn of dangers, mobilize for war or summon people for ceremonies or gatherings and could be heard from some 12 kilometers away.

The Ivorian authorities have already reserved a place for it in the National Museum, located in Plateau, on the former lands of the village of Adjamé.
