Ghana First Family Stuck in the Sixteenth Century

As we can see in this article at, allegations of incest remain a tool for personal destruction and political attacks, just as they have throughout history.
Dr. Sekou Nkrumah, the controversial son of Ghana’s first President says Dr. Nathan Kwame Nkrumah who claims to be the second son of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah had a point in time proposed to marry his sister Samia Nkrumah.

According to Sekou Nkrumah, he wonders why someone who claims to be the son of Nkrumah would want to marry his own sister.
Why does anyone want to marry anyone? Love, sex, companionship...

In an interview with XYZ News, Dr. Sekou Nkrumah said his siblings have challenged the authenticity of the story of Dr. Nathan Kwame Nkrumah and would only accept him if he tenders in substantive evidence to support his claims.

“My problem is that you don’t go around saying you are Nkrumah’s son when you are not. How can you be Nkrumah’s son when all this time nobody has heard of you?

It’s called… Nkrumah having sex with another woman. I don’t know if it happened or not, but it is possible, isn’t it?

Meanwhile, Dr. Nathan Kwame Nkrumah has laughed off the claims by Dr. Sekou Nkrumah.

According to him, Dr. Sekou Nkrumah has no right to pass judgment on his eligibility to be Dr. Nkrumah’s son.

He added that he is not perturbed about the difficulty in accepting him as a son of Dr. Nkrumah by the recognized children of Dr. Nkrumah.

Whatever the truth is, using allegations of consensual incest (or sexual orientation, for that matter) as a political tool is a practice that needs to end.
