Did you know that Dr. Kwame Nkrumah was neither born on Friday nor Saturday? See the day he was born

Yes, it is true that everyone called 'Kwame' in Ghana is a Saturday born. Also all persons by name 'Kofi' are or were born on Friday.

However, Ghana's first president is by name Dr. Kwame Nkrumah was not born on Saturday as the name depicts. Some believe that he was born on Friday. Well this is also not true.

He has the name of 'Kwame' showing that he was born on Saturday but he was not born on that date. According to calendars I have verified and research been conducted, it can be seen clearly that he was born in Tuesday.

He was born on 21st September, 1909. When you check this date on every well established calendar, it can seen that Ghana's first president was born on Tuesday and not Saturday.

The name 'Kwame' is used a title here and does not depict the name he was born.

Dr. Kwame Nkrumah is the first president of Ghana and is the one that led his team to fight for Ghana's independence.

Below is a calendar that shows that he was born on Tuesday.

Google also confirms the date for us.
