"Kwame Nkrumah was a perfect example of this:"
Do you actually have proof to the contrary?
The U.N. denied this happened and Dag Hammarskjold paid with is life for defending him.
The link here 06 Dec 16 - 10:38 AM suggests a different Nkruma.
This is how Ralph Bunche American political scientist, academic, and diplomat who received the 1950 Nobel Peace Prize for his late 1940s mediation in Israel, summed him up on behalf of the Harlem Lawyers Association in 1958.
"We salute you, Kwame Nkrumah, not only because you are Prime Minister of Ghana, although this is cause enough. We salute you because you are a true and living representation of our hopes and ideals, of the determination we have to be accepted fully as equal beings, of the pride we have held and nurtured in our African origin, of the freedom of which we know we are capable, of the freedom in which we believe, of the dignity imperative to our stature as men."
Your version seems to be a straight lift from the image projected by the C.I.A. and the others who indisputably organised the coup to overthrow him.
The same type of people probably engineered the death of Partice Lumumba.
but I'm always open to alternative information should it be forthcoming.
