The First Lady of the United States of America, Melania Trump, has paid a visit to the palace of the chief of Cape Coast, Osabarima Amoako Atta II.
This forms part of her visit to Ghana, which began on Tuesday, October 2, 2018, as part of a 4-nation visit to Africa.
She called it “very emotional” and “really something that people should see and experience.”
The U.S. first lady spent nearly an hour on a guided tour of the 17th-century castle, which originally was built by the Swedes for the trading of timber and gold but eventually became a warehouse for slaves shipped to the New World.
Her next stop was the palace of the chief of Cape Coast, Osabarima, Amoako Atta II, where she met with and interacted with the him, as well as other members of the clan and regional officers.
A colourful durbar was held to welcome her, and hundreds of people trooped to the palace to catch a glimpse of the rich cultural display.
