Over the past few days, a controversy has brewed over claims surrounding the commemoration of history dates earmarked to celebrate Ghana’s first Prime Minister, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.
In the midst of all the controversy surrounding the commemoration of Founder's day, YEN.com.gh brings to you an unseen photograph of the Prime Minister and his lovely mother, Madam Elizabeth Nyaniba. The picture is believed to have been taken soon after Kwame Nkrumah’s return to the then Gold Coast now Ghana in 1947.
The picture showed the young Nkrumah sitting in a chair with his mother sitting close beside him. It appeared to be a professional photo because both mother and son had put on serious faces.
Kwame Nkrumah is noted to be a family man and gave priority to his family. At the age of 48, he took for a wife, Fathia Helen Ritzk who was then 25 years old and a student of the University of Cairo.
Kwame Nkrumah led Ghana to become the first African nation to gain independence from her colonial masters. He is remembered for many feats and has a special day on the calendar where he is remembered for his greatness.
