Sekou Nkrumah concerned about rehabilitation works at Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum

Earlier, when the mausoleum was closed for renovations, Sekou Nkrumah, the son of Ghana’s first president, raised concerns about it.

At the time, Sekou shared a Facebook post while on vacation in the US and said there were allegations of adding the other five members of the “big six” to the memorial park.

“It was Nkrumah who carried out the concept of decolonisation and Pan-Africanism. Yes, others contributed to Ghana’s independence, however, the mausoleum symbolises Ghana’s appreciation for the leader who led us to independence,” he wrote.
