Ex President Rawlings Wept At June Four Anniversary – Has The Rectionary Minority Learnt Any Lessons From That Volcanic Eruption in 1979?

“It sounded rather foolish for one to ask me of his aims when people were dying of starvation in the teeth of a few, well fed, who even had the chance of growing fatter, when the economy of this country was dominated by foreigners, especially Arabs and Lebanese, whom successive governments had failed to question about their nefarious activities..

The first accused started talking about WIDE SPREAD CORRUPTION IN HIGH PLACES, and stated that THIS NASTY STATE OF AFFAIRS COULD BE REMEDIED ONLY BY GOING. THE ETHIOPIAN WAY.” This was an answer given to Major Okyere who asked Flt. Lt. J.J. Rawlings the first accused during the May 15th attempted coup de’tat to outline his aims and objectives for the MUTINY that morning during his trial at the Burma Hall in May 1979. “I am not an expert in Economics and I am not an expert in Law, but I am an expert in working on an empty stomach while wondering when and where the next meal will come from, I know what it feels like going to bed with a headache, for want of food in the stomach” – J.J. Rawlings – June 4, 1979 Fighting corruption is very high government Mahama gov’t agenda.

Thirty Five (35) years after these famous patriotic speeches, there is an extreme wide spread corruption in both high and low places to the extent that Wikileaks had to come out boldly tell the World that most institutions in Ghana are corrupt citing the Judiciary, the Police Service, Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority, Ghana Immigration Service, Customs Exercise and Preventive Services (CEPS), Ghana Education Service and the Civil Service in Ghana right under the nose of Former President Rawlings who is now out of political power at the age of 53 years in 2000 and cannot set up any Audit Task Force again as he did in 1985 under the PNDC era which uncovered massive corruption in the Ghana Education Service led by Professor Kwamena Ahwoi during the PNDC era. Thousands go to bed hungry under the nose of Rawlings the Redeemer, thousands are still wondering when and where the next meal will come from under the nose of Rawlings. Ex. President Rawlings is seriously sick politically because of the above revelations by Wikileaks and the suffering of the masses in Ghana but he has no wings to fly any more simply because we are in a Constitutional Rule which goes with corruption, greed, dishonesty as some politicians, businessmen and foreign criminals who have used our blood, sweat and tears – the toils of our laboring to enrich themselves, to drown in wine and women, while you and I, while the majority of us, are daily struggling for survival since January 2001 to date 2014. Why wont’ Rawlings become politically sick? He became politically sick on 8th January 2001 after handing over to Pres. Kufour. “It is no longer a question of the Akan against the Ewe, the Ga against the Northerner, but a question of THOSE WHO HAVE AND THOSE WHO HAVE NOT – A question of the vast majority of hungry people against a VERY TINY MINORITY OF GREEDY, IN HUMAN SELFISH, POLITICIANS, BUSINESSMEN AND THEIR BANK MANAGERS” that was the Peoples Man – J.J. Rawlings in June 1979 –Today 2014 corruption is in its worst form in the body politic today – I mean, the worst since Ghana’s independence in 1957 according to Wikileaks. Today, it is now the Asante Akyem politicians verses Northerners in Ghana. They feel very uncomfortable and even insecure because a Northerner from the minority tribe in Ghana is the popularly elected President of Ghana who will walk to and from the Flagstaff House until the year 2021 when he will hand over to other NDC Presidential candidates. It will be recalled that Jerry Rawlings ended his prophetic speech by saying that God will not help you and the big man will not help you, because his stomach is full, his children’s stomachs are full and there is enough for them to go and come as they like, only you can help yourselves” Thirty five years today 2014, we are witnessing all the Prophetic speeches of Rawlings in 1979 LIVE IN THIS COUNTRY SINCE 1992. Rawlings is politically sick and only true cadres as well as his numerous admirers should continue praying for his long life but we don’t need the prayers of those political crooks in cassocks who cowardly hide behind their cursed pulpits to incite their congregants against the NDC government.

For the third time in Ghana’s history President Mahama’s government is prose cutting members of his government in court- I mean the Abuga Pele case, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and J.J. Rawlings also prosecuted their own party members and even Ministers of State. This never happened under Dr. K.A. Busia’s Progress Party government, and it never happened under EX-Prez Kufour’s government from 2001-2008. Rawlings is politically sick but who will support and throw his weight behind him again as he gave Ex-gratia awards to former Ministers of State, MMDCES Regional and District Organizing Assistants who worked under him from 1982 -1992 and completely left us cadres drenched in nothingness from 1982 – 2000, who will then stick out his/her neck to throw his weight behind him in these harsh economic conditions today 2014? Rawlings is politically, sick. We must all help President Mahama to succeed because he is doing his best.


Between January 2001 – December 2008, the Architect of Probity and Accountability Flt. Lt. J.J. Rawlings was in directly put under surveillance for 24hours daily throughout the 8years that President Kufour was in power by the National Security Operatives. Several attempts were made to assassinate him and when such plans were hatched, President Kufour always flew out of the country, so that when his men succeed in killing Rawlings, he will then pretend not to be aware of it at all.

Probity and Accountability was killed and dis-membered and finally buried deep at the Osu Castle under President Kufour from 2001 – 2008 while an office of Accountability was set up, fully equipped with green eyed NPP members to look for NDC members who needed to be invited and questioned for corruption.

Billions of Ghana Cedis have been embezzled by Civil servants and Public Servants according to the Auditor General’s Report presented to the Public Accounts Committee in Parliament from 2001 – 2008 but the late Prez. Mills said Let It Be-on the advice of the late Paul Victor Obeng and Mr. Kofi Awoonor as revealed to me by Mr. P.V. Obeng during a conversation at the Umutasi Hotel at Akrokerri, his home town in 2010. The late Obeng held several powerful positions since the PNDC era in 1982 until his untimely death on May 17th, 2014 but he was not arrogant and power hungry because he was a simple man who treated cadres as his co-equals.

Yes, Rawlings is politically sick and have developed internal bleeding because of the massive corruption that took place under President Kufour’s time in office. He is not a toothless bull dog because he has the teeth that can bite alright but he can’t bite anymore. He can always talk, but he can’t walk the talk now adays. To add insult to injury, garbage is swallowing up Accra which was a thing of the past under President Rawlings hence the internal bleeding in his stomach. Now, was the execution of the Generals in June 1979 justified as corruption in Ghana is Ten fold and it is a crime to speak the truth or fight crime in the country? The Answer is Yes, because the situation at that time demanded their execution by the People of Ghana who rightly urged Rawlings to sign the death warrants of the Generals. This is the True story of what happened in June 1979.

Apart from the capital town of Ghana been swallowed by Garbage, Tema, Tarkwa, Techiman, Sekondi/Takoradi, Kumasi, Koforidua, and most Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies nation wide are being swallowed by garbage and there seem to be no solution in sight.

Therefore, the intestines of Jerry Rawlings have been turning round in his stomach like sand and stones inside a concrete mixture since Jan. 7th 2001 to date because the 1992 Constitution retired him at the ripe age of just 53years. If you doubt what I have said, you can get in touch with Rawlings and he will comfirm what I have written about him and even add more to it. Cleanliness is next to Godliness but where is the cleanliness of Ghanaians since 1993 to date? Nobody cares because we are in a constitutional rule where a so called democracy have been imposed on Ghanaians by Western Powers isn’t it? Well, Cholera, Malaria, Tuberculosis and Typhoid fever does not discriminate and when they strike, you will go to the next World whether you are an NPP, NDC, Moslem, Christian or Pagan. These deadly diseases will strike you dead whether you are an Akan, Ewe, Nzema, Dagau, Frafra, Dagomba, Gonja, Builsa, Ga, Krobo, Nabra Sefwi, Ahanta, Waasa, Wala, Lobi Kotokoli,Komkonba, Kusagi, Brifo, Grunshie, Moshie, Binoba, Vagla, Mo, Nanumba, Sisaala or Nawuri in this country.

Furthermore, Rawlings have developed another severe headache over corruption in Ghana since 2001 – 2008 during Ex-President Kufour’s administration when they became a Looting Brigade but were left untouched by President Mills on the advice of the late Professor Awoonor and late P.V. Obeng all of blessed memories. Rawlings is politically sick because the PNDC reduced corruption in Ghana from 200% in December 1981 to 1% in the year 1989 and it was the first great achievement by any gov’t. since Ghana’s independence in 1957. If you were to be in his shoes, why won’t you become very sick politically?


Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, the former first lady is the Life Patron of the June Four Movement, so it is very odd for her to leave the NDC which in heir to June 4 and form her own political party out of bitterness. She must scrap the NDP and return to the NDC unconditionally because she was helping the NPP led by Nana Akuffo Addo to come to power in 2012 he would have jailed her. Nobody would have sympathized with the Rawlingses if they had succeeded in helping this tribal War Lord on war path to come to power. I hope they would listen to my rich advice and distance themselves from the NPP in 2016. I hope they will. Corruption in very high on the Agenda of President Mahama so Rawlings sickness will soon vanish for good. Long live the Rawlingses. Long live President Mahama, Long Live the NDC, Long Live Ghana but Short Live the violent prone NPP. Amen is anybody listening? I am done. “Jaanbie Iwaii Aluta Continua!
