Ghana Twitter reacts to 50th anniversary of the death of Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah

Today in history marks fifty years since the passing of Ghana’s first president Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah. He died of cancer while receiving treatment in Bucharest, Romania on the 27th of April 1972. He was 62 years old.

Nkrumah was first given a state Burial in Conakry, Guinea by the then President Tour. He was consequently interred in his hometown of Nkroful on the 9th of July 1972. Twenty years after his burial, he was exhumed and buried at the Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum.

Nkrumah’s legacy is considered one of the most inspirational series of events to happen on the African continent. He led the Ghanaian fight against her colonial masters, championed affirmative action and proposed a unified Africa. He was a Pan-African through and through.

In loving memory of the great Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana Twitter paid homage to his legacy.
