Donkor Nsu – The Slave River In Assin Manso

imageI went to the Donkor Nsu river in the town of  Assin Manso together with my oral literature class last Saturday. The river is also  referred to as the slave river because that is where the slaves had their last bath after they had been captured from various places even outside of Ghana.

After their last bath, they were taken to the market and sold off to Europeans who took them to the castles and later to Europe.

The river is about an hour drive from Capecoast, approximately 4hours drive from Accra(the capital of Ghana).
