Chale Wole Festival is one of the country’s biggest events which has been running for the past eight years.

The event garners over 50,000 attendees at the venue, Jamestown in Accra.

Prior to the August event, rumours were rife that most of the partners and organisers of Chale Wote walked away from participating in the 2019 event because of poor organisation.

Meanwhile, news of the death of Zimbabwe’s ex-President Robert Mugabe has stirred emotions across the globe especially in Africa and already, people are sharing historic moments of the late leader.

The late leader won Zimbabwe’s first elections after the country gained independence from former colonial power UK, making him the prime minister in 1980. He later became president after he abolished the office of the prime minister in 1987.
