Today marks one of the historical moment in Ghana. On April, 27th, 1972, Ghana lost its beloved son and First President, Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah in Bucharest, Romania. Follow this article as l showcase some of the pictures of Dr Kwame Nkurmah.

Kwame Nkrumah was a Ghanaian politician and revolutionary. He was the first Prime Minister and President of Ghana, having led the Gold Coast to independence from Britain in 1957. Kwame Nkurmah, the leader of the Gold Coast's movement toward independence from Britain during the 1940s and 1950s, and also headed the new nation of Ghana following its independence in 1957 until 1966, when he was overthrown by a coup. We need to celebrate our first ever president because he did many thing for the country before he died. Dr Kwame Nkurmah died after he was overthrow, and then lived out his life in Conakry, Guinea. He was then diagnosed with prostate cancer, in August 1971 and he was taken to Romania for treatment. He died in Bucharest, Romania, on 27 April 1972 at the age of 62. Ghanaians are always sad when this day come. It always remind us of our father who fought for our Independence. I am sending my condolences to everyone in the country. God bless Ghana, God bless Ghanaians.
