President Robert Mugabe, who left Harare for Accra early this morning, has arrived in the Ghanaian capital to join Ghanaians who are celebrating the 60th anniversary of their independence in 1957, which kick-started the decolonisation of African countries.

He was received by Senior Ghanaian Minister Way Osafo Maafe and Zimbabwe’s Ambassador¬† to Ghana Pavelyn Musaka.

He is accompanied by Foreign Affairs Minister Cde Simbarashe Mumbengegwi.

The celebrations are also made special as they remember the founder of Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah.

Several African cities have halls, roads, bridges, hospitals and other monuments named after Nkrumah, who has remained a popular revolutionary icon across the continent and the developing world.

Meanwhile, Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa is the Acting President.
