Wa Ghana

Keywords: Wa Ghana
Description: Wa

Wa is the regional capital and the gateway to the Upper West Region from the south. It has a number of attractions including the Wa Na's (King's) Palace. It is said to be more than 500 years old.

Constructed of traditional swish materials, the Palace is a skilful blend of Sudanic and Moorish architecture and stands stately and beautiful.

There is also an architecturally interesting mosque located at Dondoli, a suburb of Wa and another at the nearby village of Nakori. In addition to these ancient Sudanic mosques are modern ones, which are also of interest.

Also in Wa is the grave of a famous Ghanaian colonial figure, George Ekem Ferguson from Anomabo near Cape Coast.

As an agent of the colonial government, he is reputed to have been instrumental in convincing the local chiefs in northern Ghana to sign treaties of friendship and protection with the British. In 1897, he was captured and killed by Samori's army, for aiding the British.
