Independence Day of Ghana πŸ‡¬πŸ‡­ 6th March

WAELE AFRICA Foundation Wishes to congratulate the government and people of Gambia on the occasion of her 65th independence. We wish your country and all its people happiness, continued success and prosperity.

Today is Independence Day of Ghana, an African nation formerly known as the Gold Coast. On this day in 1957, Ghana became the first African country south of the Sahara to gain independence from colonial rule. 

As the first for the region, Ghana and its independence movement catalyzed independence movements in other African countries. Celebrations of this anniversary can be heard throughout the nation as citizens sing along to β€œGhana Freedom,” a famous song of independence; and dance to regional variations of Highlife music. 

Carnivals and parades are held across Ghana, from the capital of Accra on the scenic coastline of the Gulf of Guinea to the northern heritage-rich city of Tamale.

Local foods, such as the Ghanaian jollof rice (a spicy rice dish with meat and vegetables), serve as centerpieces in many private homes, where the Ghanaian flag is raised in honor of decades of independence. 

Happy Independence Day, Ghana!
