|Oh Elder Haws,you are causing so much trouble!|
After some time in office, there was a military coup and Dr. Nkrumah was deposed (as most leaders in Africa eventually are). They tore down his statue and busted off his head. Eventually the coup was also deposed and the memory of the first president was restored. His statue, however, was not. This is a reminder of how fragile peace is.
Dr. Nkrumah was really big on African unity and these fountain people represent different countries or sections of Africa who should all come together.
The view from the top was really something. We could see all of Accra. In addition, as we were close to the ocean, there was a nice breeze and it was not so hot.
