Pope resigns: Cardinal Peter Turkson's friends recall childhood in Ghana

The Sunday Telegraph's Harriet Alexander visits Cardinal Peter Turkson's home village in Ghana to find out more about the man who could be Africa's first Pope.


Cardinal Peter Turkson, considered one of the front-runners to succeed Benedict XVI as Pope, grew up in the village of Nsuta Wassaw, 300 miles from Ghana's capital Accra.
He shared a tiny wooden bungalow with his parents and nine siblings.
Florence Baah, who lives next door to the house now, described the cardinal as "a nice man" and said that he was "good for Ghana".
Cardinal Turkson's lifelong friend Dunhill Pawosey, 62, recalled their school days and said that the cardinal had been an avid table tennis player and guitarist.
He laughed as he told The Telegraph's Harriet Alexander that they used to enjoy playing James Brown songs together.
 Mr Pawosey said that he had never left Ghana but would love to visit his friend in Rome and believed that he was "the right person" to become the next Pope.
