Madam Amodzie, a 198-year-old woman from Subri in the Western Region’s Wassa East area, has revealed some stunning truths and secrets concerning Ghana’s first prime minister, Dr Kwame Nkrumah.
She told Captain Smart on Onua TV how she helped Dr Kwame Nkrumah’s mother when she was pregnant because she was a native doctor at the time.
Dr. Kwame Nkrumah’s mother, Elizabeth Nyaniba, received traditional remedies from the elderly woman when Nkrumah was still in his mother’s womb.
She also revealed in the interview that she had seven children, the oldest of whom is over 80 years old.
Madam Amodzie highlighted that she was far older than Nkrumah’s mother when she described her encounter with her. She is a farmer and continues to cultivate at her advanced age.
Is Madam Amodzie, at the age of 198, the world’s oldest woman? Well, that’ll have to wait until another day.
