According to the woman, the incident happened on March 6, 1964, when at the age of 13, she was given the honour of presenting a bouquet to Dr Kwame Nkrumah at the Independence Square.

Little did the unsuspecting girl know that the bouquet given to her by the mastermind, Mallam Toura, contained a bomb that was meant to take the life of the president at the time.

When the bomb went off, the president was fortunately not injured but the young girl lost her leg and has reportedly been in main since that fateful day.

Dr Nkrumah reportedly visited her on different occasions when he was president and supported her till he was overthrown.

According to Asantewaa, she has been neglected by successive governments and is only waiting for death to send her home.

The Crime Check Foundation visited the woman and gave her money and some items from their donors as part of the organization’s Health Check Series.
