If Kwame Nkrumah's Date Of Birth Is Right, Then He Was Born On Tuesday And Not Saturday(Details)

Ghana's first President after independence is Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. He was born in Nkroful, a town in Nzema.

He is believed to be born on 21st September, 1909 according to all publications. However, if this date of birth is really true, then Ghana's first president is not a Saturday born as claimed by many.

Looking at the calendar for 1909, it is clearly stated in all the calendars that 21st September, 1909 was a Tuesday.

Can we conclude that Dr. Kwame Nkrumah is indeed a Tuesday born and not a Saturday born. Or he is a Saturday born but people may have made a mistake in his date of birth.


Kwame was the only child of his mother.[b][25] Nkrumah's mother sent him to the elementary school run by a Catholic mission at Half Assini.


It is however alleged that Dr. Kwame Nkrumah's mother whose name is Elizabeth Nyanibah stated that his son was born in 1912. If this date is right, then Dr. Kwame Nkrumah was born on Saturday which is generally known.
