Melania Trump pays ‘touching’ visit to slave fortress in Ghana

Melania Trump, the wife of president Donald Trump is on tour to Africa. The US First Lady on Tuesday pulled faces at babies and handed out teddy bears as she kicked off her maiden solo trip to Africa, offering a softer side to the Trump administration after another turbulent week in Washington.

Melania Trump laid a wreath at a 17th-century slave fortress in Ghana on Wednesday, vowing never to forget where Africans were held before being shipped away into further hardship, most across the Atlantic.

Ghana is the jumping-off point for her first major solo international trip as first lady – a tour of Africa. She will visit Malawi, Kenya and Egypt as well.

Ghana is seen as a haven of stability in an often turbulent region but despite the interest back home, the first lady’s visit did not appear to have generated similar fervour locally.

Unlike the Obamas’ visit, the roads from the airport were not packed with onlookers while there was little fanfare in the local media, according to an AFP reporter on the ground.

“We in Africa, we like the other administration that came before this one,” said Yaw Cobblah, a 46-year-old taxi driver in the capital.
