Egypt today honours one of its dearest daughters, Samia Nkrumah, symbol of the union between Egypt and Africa south of the Sahara. Her mother Fathia Nkrumah was the first Egyptian woman to marry the leader of an African nation — the first in the continent to gain independence from a European colonial power. The symbolism of the occasion is historic.
