As we’ve grown to believe, any good thing in Africa or Ghana for that matter was done or brought here by the white man.
It was, therefore, easy to both believe and/or assume that the magnificent canopy walkway at the Kakum National park was indeed a colonial gift.
Well, apparently, we thought wrong.
It is thanks to this unknown Kenneth Akuffo Asare who built the canopy walkway at Kakum and other places.
In a country where only political heroes are celebrated depending on which political party is in power, it is easy to understand why the story of Kenneth will fall through the cracks and into the amazing-Ghana-facts black hole.
Watch part of his interview with Kofi below:
