Former President Rawlings has described the Vice Chairperson of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Anita Desoso, as a “crook”, who is fond of using cunning means to get her way.
According to Jerry Rawlings, Anita Desoso is crook and that, she was lucky he doesn’t talk about her too much.
“She’s a crook. She’s lucky I don’t talk about her that much”, Rawlings said during a recent event.
At the 39th anniversary of the uprising of June 4 which was held at the Madina Social Welfare School Park, Monday, First Vice-Chair of the NDC, Anita Desoso knelt down and begged the founder of the party, Jerry John Rawlings, to forgive them their sins.
“Now to my father – Founder, I know your children we have erred and I also know that you are a human being and you have also done something maybe it is not right.
And I was so happy when I heard you say that when you brought a statement out, rendering an apology – you are a hero. You are a hero. This shows that what you have thought me is still within me. If you are a leader, be prepared to say that I am sorry. If you are a child, be prepared to say that daddy I’m sorry. So, I will take this opportunity on behalf of the party to kneel down before my dad – please forgive us. Let us come together to build this country”.
However, Former President Rawlings speaking in a recent event said “what she did was pre-planned. Yes, the woman on the stage, June 4, when she went on her knees".
The former military leader recalled Anita Desoso using a similar grovelling tactic on his wife, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings, to gain favour to win the Women Organizer slot of the party in the past.
"Maybe sometimes I say the inappropriate things, I should have said it there and then [that she's a crook]", Rawlings added.
