A Life in the Political History of Ghana

Memoirs of Alhaki Mumuni Bawumia

by Alhaji Mumuni Bawumia

Mumuni Bawumia served as a Member of Parliament and Government Minister in Ghana’s first independence government, working closely with Kwame Nkrumah through to the period of the Fourth Republic. He is remembered particularly for his role in bridging the development gap between the north and south of the country. He was later a barrister and played a prominent role in the all-important cocoa industry. In this book he recounts his memoirs over a period of some 80 years, situating them within the historical context of the country. He covers his early years, role with the Northern Territories Council, role in the independence struggle and experiences of working with Nkrumah, his working life after the 1981 revolution, and its culmination when he returns to traditional chieftancy.
