Rawlings Death Was Too Easy, He Killed My Father By Firing Squad : Acheampong’s Daughter Writes

Published

on

Nana Serwaa Acheampong, biological daughter of Late Former President Ignatius Kutu Acheampong, has penned down a letter to explain his emotional explanation about the death of Ex-president Jerry John Rawlings.

According to Nana Serwaa Acheampon, Mr. Rawlings Executed her father Acheampong by Firing Squad and so, she wished a more painful death on him but, can’t say her wish came through.

Fmr. President J.J. Rawlings is dead said my visitor, I said it’s fake news! What’s the source I asked, Graphic online he said. Then it must be true. How? Was he sick? We hadn’t heard that he was sick. I checked my phone, loads of posts confirming that yes indeed he was dead!

When he was alive people often asked me how I felt about him. My response, nothing and it’s true, because if I had spent my life hating him for having killed my father, what a wasted life that would have been. Now he’s dead, and somehow I feel robbed, cheated because unlike my father, Rawlings’ death was too easy, too comfortable probably.

Death by firing squad, that’s how my father died, when I was just 6 years old. At the time I didn’t understand, but as I grew up, it started to become clearer, I had no one to call father. Now I think, his children and I are the same fatherless! But at least they grew up knowing their father, they grew up being provided for and protected by their father. So no we are not the same.

Rawlings took my father away from me by firing squad, leaving me with no father to provide for me or protect me. Rawlings is dead and I feel cheated. If there is an afterlife where you meet those who have gone before, I wonder what Rawlings will say to my father, who showed him kindness, and all the others he killed so ruthlessly. In this life, Rawlings never acknowledged the pain he caused so many of us, never said sorry for our loss or showed remorse.

Nothing! So Rawlings is dead, to me his death was too easy, too comfortable, unlike the death he gave my father and countless others. Aside from this I feel nothing about the man, except pity for his children who now know the pain of losing a father.

Thank you to all those reaching out to me at this moment.”This matter errrrh…. hmmmmm

Background Of Ignatius Kutu Acheampong Death?

Claiming that the government was corrupt beyond redemption and that new leadership was required for Ghana’s development, Flight Lieutenant Jerry John Rawlings led a group in a coup to oust the Akuffo Government and Supreme Military Council.

Shortly afterwards, Rawlings established and became the Chairman of a 15-member Armed Forces Revolutionary Council (AFRC), primarily composed of junior officers.

He and the AFRC ruled for 112 days and arranged the execution by firing squad of eight military officers, including Generals Kotei, Joy Amedume, Roger Felli, and Utuka, as well as the three former heads of state: Afrifa, Acheampong, and Akuffo-Addo.

Ghana Election 2020: Rawlings Death: “Mahama Tried Hard To Silence Rawlings When He Was Alive” : Nana Konadu Agyemang Weeps

Published

on

Nana Akonadu Agyemang Rawlings, who is wife of Late Former President Jerry John Rawlings, has made an explosive statement in a press conference this afternoon, Monday 23rd November 2020, saying that, former President John Dramani Mahama tried so hard to silence Rawlingsin the affairs of NDC when he was alive.

Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, who is the Presidential Candidate for National Democratic Party (NDC), held her press conference today at Alisa Hotel.

In the statement of the NDP, they slammed the Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama for trying to use the death of Mr. Rawlings to get political sympathy to win votes in the coming general elections.

Reading on behalf of the party, the NDP General Secretary Alhaji Mohammed Frimpong who addressed the media said the NDC is being hypocritical in the wake of the demise of the late statesman.

He said “With what he did with the demise of former President Mills, he should not be allowed to do the same with the death of our beloved, former president Rawlings. And Ghanaians should not oblige to that. The hypocrisy of the NDC when Jerry John Rawlings was alive, [was such that] John Mahama desperately wanted to silence him and now that Rawlings is no more, Mahama finds it expedient to utilize his death to galvanize support for his weak base within the NDC rank and file and the country at large to salvage his 2020 campaign which is going nowhere.”

He added “Suddenly, the individuals within the NDC under the current leadership of John Mahama who publicly vilified Rawlings have rediscovered a new voice proclaiming themselves to the true adherent of his ideals and those who used foul languages against Rawlings are now hailing him.”
