Rawlings Saved Ghana, We’ll Never See His Kind Again – Leila Djansi

Former President Jerry John Rawlings

Filmmaker Leila Djansi says she does not understand why there are duplicitous commentary about the life of late former President Jerry John Rawlings.

Taking to her Facebook page she stated that some of the commentary she has heard mentions “J.J. Rawlings had a good and bad side.”

She stated that it is unhealthy for people to refer to those who enforce discipline, integrity, hard work and selflessness as difficult or bad.

“Rawlings SAVED Ghana from hunger and all the corruption wrought under Acheampong. He punished the guilty. If that’s what made him bad, well…”

She described the late stateman as rare and a dreamy god.

Ms Djansi wrote that the country will never have “a legend” like the late former President ever again.

“Every plane that flew above our heads brought the chant “JJ Rawlings” from kids…Rest Well! You will be missed and never forgotten!”

Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings died at the Korle Bu Teaching hospital after a short illness on November 12, 2020.

The final funeral rites of the late former President was held at the Black Star Square in Accra with scores of dignitaries and Ghanaians in attendance to bid farewell to him.

Classic Ghana
