Fort Komenda, Western region, Ghana, West Africa
Fort Komenda, Ghana. One of the important slave trading forts / castles, of the Gold Coast. Unfortunately, crumbling! As important to the slave trade history, as Cape Coast Castle or Elmina Castle, this fort is left to crumble away! You will find there dungeons, where slaves where held, before shipping to the Americas. Parts of the fort are still strong, other parts are dangerously broken down. Not on the visitor map, in the so called year of return. Very unfortunate! As Komenda is also not promoted, you see no visitors. The main road improvement to Komenda, begun under Mahama government, is discontinued by NPP, same as the finished Sugar Factory! It's not just a shame, but a crime against the Ghanaian people, as much money has been invested, and is lost now! We recommend, to visit Komenda and the fort. Barely 40 min from Elmina away! A nice beach and lots of history awaits you! Check http://ghana-net.com/ for a website link, soon. Lots of pictures, and more information about this important historic location. We also will soon have a page online, regarding Fort William of Cape Coast! (One of 3 forts/castles of Cape Coast). Unfortunately, also left to crumble. Ghana has much to learn yet, how to maintain history and promote tourism! It's a shame!
