A tribal council in Ghana has banned expensive funerals. The rules specifically bar the wearing of expensive clothes and the serving of pricey drinks. The council has also barred people under 18 from attending funerals, from riding bicycles on the streets, and from going out after 9 p.m. The measures are aimed at enforcing discipline and curbing "immoral" lifestyles.
