An adorable photo of Ghana’s Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah and his mother, Elizabeth Nyaniba, has generated pleasant reactions after it was shared online.

While the exact location is not detailed, the two revered personalities were captured at Cape Coast in 1947 when Nkrumah visited his mother.

Ghana’s first President Kwame Nkrumah was the only child to his mother. Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah was born on September 21, 1909 and died on April 27, 1972.

Despite being shrouded in mystery, Nogokpo, is a small village in the Volta region, Ghana, and connotes ''stay in peace''.

However, peace does not mean freedom; one cannot access the entire township freely because there are areas that individuals are not permitted to access wearing either shoes or sandals.
