In May this year, Yes Ghana Online reported how former President Rawlings said if going to Heaven meant sharing the place with former President John Mahama and John Kufuor, then he is better off and happy going to hell.
The former President made the harsh comments against the two Former Presidents when he received a delegation from the Volta Region covered by Yes Ghana Online. Our story engendered a discussion which forced the former president to apologize.
At the time, According to the Former military ruler, former President Kufuor is ‘evil’ while former President Mahama, a ‘rogue’; and they both destroyed the country, adding that he will gladly join Satan in hell should they (Mahama and Kufuor) make heaven.
Mr. Rawlings later issued a statement retracting the said statement and apologized as well.
President Kufuor accepted the apology but went further to debunk the allegations made against him by Mr. Rawlings
But in another twist of events, Yes Ghana Online has obtained another tape in which the former President is grading all former presidents alive.
Starting from Atta Mills, Mr. Rawlings said “W’antumi anye hu!”, referencing Mills ability to right wrongs of the past. For Mr. Mahama, Rawlings said he wasted his opportunity but when it got to Akufo-Addo, Mr. Rawlings said he doesn’t understand why people don’t respect that man, because in his words, “that man is ‘cultured”.
As you MyNewsGH.com’s readers will guess, the last person is John Agyekum Kufuor whose name Mr. Rawlings did not mention but said “some former presidents are “Hypocrites, wicked creatures”.
Stressing and repeating the words, he said “yes, hypocrites! Wicked creatures!”.
