It’s an open fact that the late former President Jerry John Rawlings was brutally honest!
No matter how hard the truth seemed, he one way or the other found a soft spot to tell it.
The only recognized son of Rawlings, Kimathi has paid tribute to him and revealed the one-time his father labelled him as stupid!
According to him, he almost lost his life when he and some friends carelessly went diving at the Ada beach resort.
After the tumultuous experience in the middle of the lake that scared the hell out of his father’s best swimmer, the young man returned home and the below was his father’s word for him.
“I did not think it was necessary to warn you because I didnt think you were stupid enough to swim in that part of the beach,” Kimathi wrote in his tribute to his father.
