The story of Dr. Nkrumah’s Kankan Nyame became popular in the early 50s when the rumor of his absence on the Gold Coast and then to Guinea was made known by some military group.

Dr. Kwame Nkrumah’s quest for a United Africa caused him to travel all over Africa as he formed a West African solidarity with Guinea and Mali to push the anti-colonial agenda from 1952 to 1972.

In Guinea, Dr. Nkrumah was deeply loved by all. He first visited Kankan, the largest town among the many speakers of Guinea.

It was made to believe that, Dr. Nkrumah was introduced to a deity in Kankan, Guinea. Sources revealed that Nkrumah brought the Kankan goddess to Ghana in 1953 and made a secret shrine for her within the Flagstaff House. 

According to one Prophet Baidoo, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah spiritually enslaved the country in bondage when he used a pregnant woman’s blood to make a god that he called Kankan Nyame.

“After Independence, whoever has sat on the throne of the presidency has never had it easy ruling the country. 

At the end, Ghanaians lie in difficulties.”

Describing the Kankan Nyame, the prophet said:

“Dr. Nkrumah made a half dead pregnant woman kneel, and tied seven white handkerchiefs around her neck, and hands. 

There were some bowls around the pregnant woman containing human blood and human skulls placed in-between the bowls.”

According to him, Nkrumah kept this god at the Flagstaff house and at the castle.

“Some of the human blood was also sent to the Independence Square. The statue at the Independence Square was built with human blood” he reiterated.

He described the star in a hand with the inscription Gye Nyame on the country’s bank notes as juju and could be attributed to the fallen value of the Cedi.

The rumour of Kankan Nyame shot up after the overthrow of Dr. Nkrumah in 1966. Some workers and GIJ students openly demonstrated in Accra holding placards of beguiling insults aimed at the deposed president.

One of the placards had an image of a naked Nkrumah kneeling before a female goddess with 7 handkerchiefs tied to her hands.

Strangely Nkrumah was bombed several times at close range but he was barely harmed.

But Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah denied these claims in one of his books quoted by Michael Gyamerah on (page 105 of Dark Days In Ghana):

“A particularly nauseating part of the smear campaign was the putting of a dead woman and child into a refrigerator at Flagstaff House, saying that this was ‘Kwame Nkrumah’s juju’, and inviting public inspection.

Lawyer Anokye responding to these claims stated that these allegations were made to tarnish the image of Nkrumah and therefore burry his name.

” When Ghanaians realized that Nkrumah’s best friend was Sekou Toure, and hence has traveled to Guinea several times, they wanted something in Guinea that could be used to tarnish his image and integrity, hence the name Kankan Nyame”. He said

According to Lawyer Anokye, the first cartoonist in Ghana called Ghanata was consulted to draw a naked women with Nkrumah kneeling naked before that idol.

This picture that was made travelled all over the world making people believe that it is true Nkrumah has kept this idol at his residence until recently before the death of Ghanata, he made a confession.

Ghanata was forced by the military leaders to create such images to tarnish Nkrumah’s image. In reality, there is nothing in existence like “Kankan Nyame”. It was something that was fabricated for the personal gains of those who overthrown Nkrumah.
