Ghana’s first-ever woman to be recruited to the police force has passed away at 91 years old.
Rosamond Asiamah fought for the rights of her fellow policewomen.
Her son, Andrew Nkansah told the BBC that her greatest achievement in terms of the police force was encouraging other women to join the force.

She insisted that women officers who got pregnant should be allowed back into the force after their maternity leave.
Her former colleagues also stood by her. One of them, Margaret Dakwa, said 12 of them were recruited on the same day and Madam Asiamah was made their leader.
