Following the appointment of Ghana’s former president, John Agyekum Kufuor as a Senior Grand Warden of the United Grand Lodge of England (UGLE), some Ghanaians who appeared shocked have begun wondering which other prominent personalities in the country are Freemasons.

The popular belief is that many influential personalities, thanks to their success, belong to the group.

But what is Freemasonry?

Freemasonry is one of the world’s largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organisations.

Its members come from all walks of life and meet as equals whatever their faith, ethnic group or position in society.

Raising funds largely through voluntary donations, supporting individual members, local communities and global emergencies are their main objectives.

Public declaration of membership is optional.
