The Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum and National Park was established on the old Polo Ground and committed to the first leader of Ghana, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah in 1992 under the administration of Jerry John Rawlings. The purpose of the mausoleum is to safeguard the inheritance and recorded ancient artifacts of the man who won freedom for Ghana and viewed by numerous individuals as the founder of the country.
The Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum is found straightforwardly inverse the old Parliament House of Ghana, which presently fills in as the workplace of the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ). With an all-out land surface of 5.3 sections of land, the Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum is the biggest Historical Museum in Ghana. Just before the Mausoleum is the Huge statue of Kwame Nkrumah, which can be seen from a far distance.
While just the statue of Kwame Nkrumah can be seen from far off, the inside of the sepulcher has a few areas including the graveside and tomb of the late president just as historical center that contains every one of his diaries, from marked reports to photos he took with a portion of the world’s most dominant and praised men of the twentieth century. A portion of the well-known photos found in the gallery includes Dr. Nkrumah’s photos with Queen Elizabeth of England, Pope Pius XII, Fidel Castro, President Nasser of Egypt and John F. Kennedy of U.S.A.
Kwame Nkrumah has a mythical name in Africa and especially Ghana. He was the first sub-Saharan leader to lead his country to independence in 1957 and turned it into a Republic in 1966. Kwame Nkrumah was convinced that Africa should unify in order to avoid all kinds of problems. Unfortunately, his lessons were not learned and at least in some corners of the continent, this must still be regretted. Nkrumah was ousted in a coup in 1966, and went into exile in Guinea, to become the co-president of the country. He never returned to Ghana alive.
