Madam Elizabeth Ankrah (the 102-year-old woman who cooked for Kwame Nkrumah in the 1960s)

The lady who made sure Ghana’s independence hero, Dr Kwame Nkrumah was well fed was still alive as at 2017.

At 100 years old, Madam Elizabeth Ankrah was honoured for serving the ex-president by a UK based

charity known as the Mission Dine Club (MDC).

Little is known about Madam Elizabeth Ankrah, but the ceremony which took place at the

Presbyterian Church in Accra, Ghana, saw her being honored with a citation as well as a customized kente cloth.

It is important to document the stories of the people who were around African statesmen

throughout their life for posterity to get the full picture of the people we love to revere and

also hate.
