6 March 2007
Thousands of cheering Ghanaians waving the red, yellow and green national flag packed a central square in the capital on Tuesday to celebrate the 50th birthday of the first nation in sub-Saharan Africa to win independence. According to the Mail & Guardian
, Accra’s Independence Square was transformed into a sea of fluttering flags as excited crowds of citizens joined invited dignitaries to celebrate the March 6 1957 anniversary of the end of British colonial rule over Ghana.
This is a deeply symbolic event for all Africans. The day a party like the DA fully grasps the momentous nature of these celebrations of Africa’s first independent state and acts accordingly, will be the day when black people will consider voting for them.
