Check Out Kwame Nkrumah’s Swag Whiles At Achimota.

He is arguably the most popular and highly regarded Ghanaian of all time. During the years when the relationship between him as president and the people of Ghana was great, he was referred to as the ‘Show Boy’. His charisma was unimaginable. People who had the opportunity to meet him in person recounted how heavy his presence was.

He became known as the ‘Osagyefo’, a title he dearly cherished. Many institutions and facilities have been named after him all over Africa for the belief people had in his course of African emancipation. Of course, we know how his government and eventually his life came to an end. That was the man Kwame Nkrumah.

His young days, both in Ghana and in the west, whiles pursing higher education is often not touched on as much as many would have wished.

It is known that he had some part of his education at Achimota School and left by 1930. His days there are often not talked of very much compared to his political career and exploits.

That notwithstanding, there are a few pictures of him at Achimota. We came across one, in a group picture of what seems to be a dormitory members-only picture with two foreign teachers.

Try to see if you can identify him.
