What about a documentary on Yaa-Naa, 39 others’ murder? - Rawlings to Multimedia

Former President Jerry Rawlings has once again responded to what he described as justice served to the killers of the 3 judges and a major in 1982 under his watch

He took to Twitter on Tuesday, October 9 describing the killing of the judges and the major as “An unfortunate tragedy that saw hard, swift justice done to the perpetrators; Unlike the organized assault and killing of Yaa Naa and his 39 elders for which those perpetrators are yet to see justice” after 16 years.

Yaa-Naa Yakubu Andani II was killed in cold blood in March 2002 after three days of the sustained gun attack on his palace, The Gbewa Palace, he was dismembered and his body parts taken away by the assailants. Apart from the Woaku Commission Report, set up by the Kufuor regime to investigate, no one knows why Yaa-Naa Yakubu Andani II was killed together with his elders.

According to him, the difference between the two murder cases is that “one group of four saw justice; the other group of 40 did no and has not”.

The former president sees no reason in using a whole documentary in resurrecting dead memories just to cause pain to relatives of victims.

As part of multimedia’s attempt to unravel circumstances surrounding the killings of some three judges of the superior court in Ghana, last week a full documentary dubbed “Who killed the judges” was airedwhich has regenerated a discussion on the matter after so many years.

But MyNewsGH.com accosted Mr Rawlings at the United Nations Youth summit held in Accra and he had a warning for Multimedia, sponsors and producers of the documentary piece.

Asked by MyNewsGh.com’s Fred Duhoe as to what he makes of the documentary, the statesman simply answered “I will respond to the multimedia documentary in Kumasi”

To make things much clearer, Mr Rawlings said: “I will boom on that platform to lay some facts bare” he revealed to MyNewsGH.com.
