J. J Rawlings Says ‘I’m One Of Africa’s Cleanest Leaders…I’ve Never Been Corrupt’

J J Rawlings

 

Though we are yet to see any leader calling himself corrupt, the many of our African leaders (past and present) perfectly fit the word…

Despite countless allegations of Human Right Violations and Corruption that were thrown at him and his government when he was the President of the Ghana, Jerry John Rawlings has come out to state that, he is one of Africa’s cleanest leaders and that he was never corrupt…

Pretty interesting right?

According to RadioXYZ;

Former President Jerry Rawlings of Ghana has said he is one of Africa’s cleanest leaders to have been head of state.

“I will dare you to go and line up some of your finest policemen, some of your finest heads of state, some of your finest judges. Make any allegations against me. You included. Whatever questions you want to ask; take me through a chemical interrogation. I will be the one who will pass. I wonder how many of you will pass,” Mr Rawlings told some African youths at a forum outside Ghana recently.

Responding to a question from a member of the audience about allegations of corruption leveled against him back home by critics, Mr Rawlings retorted: “…Chief when it comes to accusing me, don’t forget, eight generals, three former heads of state, painfully executed. I Rawlings will not turn round and commit the very crime for which another man lost his life.”

J. J. Rawlings Says Acheampong, Utuka & Others Needed To Die

J J Rawlings

 

It will be hypocrisy on my apart to suddenly claim that no one has the right to take away the life of another, because life is a God given gift—on the grounds that I don’t even believe in the existence of such a God.

However, even with the absence of objective moral values (as some people argue), right to life is a basic right, inherent, and until a Court of a land through fair trail has ordered so, it becomes illegal to take the life of another—-no matter the justification you can buy from somewhere…

Without a fair trail as we will all accept, J. J Rawlings had no legal right to kill or order the killing of any of the people he did. It is therefore unfortunate that even as at today, he still thinks his actions are justified and proper.

According to RadioXYZ;

Former President Jerry Rawlings says the Armed Forces Revolutionary Council necessarily needed to have executed Generals Afrifa, Acheampong, Utaka and other senior Military Officers in 1979 to save the country from implosion.

“We had no choice. We thought let two go. Acheampong and a certain Utuka, very corrupt Generals. They were sacrificed. It was not enough. Ladies and gentlemen, 10 days later, we had to sacrifice another 6 and some of the Commanders were innocent good people but it had to be done because the rage in the country was too high, too much”, the former Military leader told students in the Volta region where he spoke as the Guest of honour at the closing ceremony of the regional camp of the International Youth Fellowship at the Adidome Senior High School.

POLITRICKS OF THE DAY: J. J. Rawlings Seeks Wisdom For Prez Mahama

J J Rawlings

Ghana’s former President and Leader of the 31st December Revolution, Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings has in a statement to mark the 31st Anniversary of the Revolution, sought God’s guidance for the people of Ghana as well as President John Mahama as he prepares to take up the mantle as fourth elected President of the Fourth Republic.

He prayed for God to provide President Mahama with the wisdom to pick men and women of integrity to man his administration and the courage to ‘prevent leeches, parasites, thieves and liars from taking refuge” in the corridors of power.

President Rawlings added that he wished President Mahama well as he prepares officially take up the mantle of leadership on January 7.

Out Of Box Story: Wikileaks Has Released Reports Which Say J. J Rawlings Uses Drugs + Nana Akuffo Addo Smokes Marijuana

For some reason, I have even forgotten about Wikileaks and their release of US classified reports. In our forgotten minds, Wikileaks has hit Ghana with reports they released on 30th August, 2011 which are; US Embassy cable that says former President Jerry John Rawlings uses drugs and his finance minister at that time was alarmingly incompetent. And another report by former United States Abbassador to Ghana, Pamela Bridgewater, on the profile of NPP presidential aspirants ahead of the 2008 elections.

On J. J. Rawlings, the cable which was created on July 31, 1997 states “Ambassador Princen’s wife concluded emphatically that Rawlings is a drug-user. Periods of high-level energizing were followed by Rawlings’disappearance for thirty minutes, and upon his return he was subdued and even mellow. He perspired profusely at short notice, and consumed large quantities of non-alcoholic drinks. Princen reinforced my own impression that Rawlings’ attention span has shortened of late. But the Princens found the President open, indulgent towards his children, and extremely deferential – even obsequious – towards his spouse.”
