The mausoleum used to house only the remains of Dr Kwame Nkrumah until 2007 when the body of his wife, Fathia Nkrumah’s was buried there.
After signing the book of condolence, Pelosi and her delegation visited the museum to appreciate some of the personal effects of Ghana’s First Family including some publications of Dr Nkrumah.
While in Ghana, Speaker Pelosi and her delegation will also pay homage at Cape Coast and Elmina Castles.
At the Cape Coast Castle, they will be at the ‘Door of No Return’ to observe the 400th Anniversary of the First Enslaved Africans Landing in America.
