Ghana To Build ‘Wakanda City’ To Serve As A Pilgrimage For People of African Descent
Cape Coast officials have signed a “memorandum of understanding” with the Africa Diaspora Development Institute (ADDI) and two local companies to create an ultramodern city known as “Wakanda One”.
The city, which name is inspired by the technologically advanced fictional African place portrayed in “Black Panther,” aims to be a pilgrimage for the people of African descent to learn about their history, culture, the civilization of Africa, and its role in the creation of the new world economy.
There are five phases to the city project. Once complete, the city will feature a one thousand-bed teaching hospital, a university and technical college, five-star hotels and resorts, a pharmaceutical manufacturing plant, parks and green space, a shopping center, roads that are ready to support self-driving electric cars, and more.
The project is expected to create approximiaetly 3,000 jobs in Cape Coast.
“The African Diaspora is committed to change the African narrative and strongly feel that a united African Diaspora can bring the capacity that is needed to move Africa to its rightful place on the world stage,” the city’s project team released in a statement.
