Dr. Kwame Nkrumah was not only a brave Ghanaian politician, he was a scholar and a wheel of change. His political ideas and transformations went beyond the shores of Ghana–and saw the need to extend helping hands to others, especially other African countries as the right cause of action for the liberation of the African continent.
As a freedom fighter and a key player in the struggle for Independence for Gold Coast, now Ghana, we literally owe our freedoms and existence partly to Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.
Beyond freedoms, it was under his rule that some of the biggest and still cherished developmental projects such as the Akosombo dam took place.
Of course, Nkrumah was a unique hero–but he had his bad sides, something most people do not have a single idea about. He committed certain horrendous atrocities against his own political friends–and those who stood as his critics or against his ideological directions.
Before we delve into our 7 evil things Kwame Nkrumah did that even his staunchest admirers would struggle to defend, let’s look at the below quick intriguing facts about Ghana’s forerunner of the Independence movement.
Intriguing Facts:

  • Kwame Nkrumah worked as a dishwasher during his first year studying in the United States as a way of making ends meet.
  • He also once stowed away on a boat to Nigeria to meet an uncle to raise funds for his education.
  • He earned a degree in theology from Lincoln University, Pennsylvania

  1. In all persons there is good and there is bad, it is a matter of proportion, is the good greater that the bad or the other way around? Was Nkrumah rule worst that the European colonial masters? He was one of them and in the long run the young country would benefit from his efforts in spite of his flaws, he was an native, not representing outside rule, but was an indigenous leader with a vision and a determination to accomplish his vision, but as usual the worst enemies of progress are many times are their own people who forgets what it was under foreign rule.
