48 years ago, on April 27, 1972, Kwame Nkrumah, the deposed President of Ghana and a great Pan-Africanist died in Bucharest, Romania after six years in exile in Guinea far away from his birthplace of Nkroful at the age of 62.
Kwame Nkrumah played a pivotal role in the formation of the African Union (A.U) previously called the Organization of African Unity (O.A.U) and led his country to independence in 1957.
Kwame Nkrumah was one of the prominent leaders in the African soil whose ideas of freedom sprang from his home country Ghana to Africa. During his time Ghana and Africa witnessed his good works and more importantly the idea of Africa unity which he was not able to accomplish. Some of us did not see Nkrumah but have seen some of his works and achievements. But fortunately, the graveyard of the man is still in existence in the capital city of Ghana which is Accra.
Today, I bring to you some memories of the man who was there for Ghanaians till his painful exit. Photos from his grave have been piled in this article. Below are some of the photos of Dr, Kwame Nkrumah’s grave.
The located of this graveyard is in downtown Accra, and specifically at the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park and Mausoleum. The Mausoleum is the last resting spot of Ghana’s first President and the veteran Africanist.
Lets continue to pay respect to the man even in his grave because he has done a lot for the country.
