Anita Desoso is a 'crook', she's lucky I hardly talk about her – Rawlings
Former President Jerry John Rawlings has described Vice Chair of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Anita Desoso, who knelt before him to apologise and beg for forgiveness on behalf of the NDC for its ‘sins’ during the 39th anniversary of the June 4 Uprising, as a “crook”, who is fond of using cunning means to get her way.
“She’s a crook. She’s lucky I don’t talk about her that much”, Mr Rawlings said at a recent event.
“What she did was pre-planned. Yes the woman on the stage, June 4, when she went on her knees”, Mr Rawlings said.
The former military leader recalled Ms Desoso using a similar groveling tactic on his wife, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings, to gain favour to win the Women Organiser slot of the party in the past.
"Maybe sometimes I say the inappropriate things, I should have said it there and then [that she's a crook]", Mr Rawlings added.
