Count yourself ‘lucky’ to be alive – Kweku Baako to Rawlings
Written by Saltfmonline.com on October 18, 2018
Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide, Kweku Baako has described former President Jerry John Rawlings as the “luckiest Ghanaian” ever to be Alive.
Mr. Baako said the former president’s role in Ghana’s history cannot be overlooked because he was pivotal in a series of activities that led to the demise of many Ghanaians.
Kweku Baako was reacting to a recent documentary aired by Joy News seeking to uncover events that led to the killing of some Judges during the Rawlings’ regime.
The documentary dubbed “Who Killed the Judges” has generated lots of controversy after being aired with former president Rawlings describing it as fabricated to paint some people as evil.
The ex-President has however claimed innocence of the incident saying history has been “re-hashed” and “re-cooked” to make him and other innocent people look guilty.
The three judges; Justices Kwadwo Adjei Agyepong, Poku Sarkodie and Mrs. Cecelia Koranteng-Addow, and a retired Major in the Ghana Armed Forces, were abducted and branded “enemies of the revolution” under the Provisional National Defence Council (PNDC) led by Mr. Rawlings in 1982.
Speaking on Peace fm’s kokrokoo, Mr. Baako said former president Rawlings cannot vindicate himself from the murders that occurred under his leadership, for which he played significant roles.
He added any soldier who overthrows a constitutionally elected government commits treason and the punishment is death.Therefore, for Rawlings to be walking freely, it is a miracle but also means that he is a “running illegality”.
“He is the luckiest Ghanaian ever. Any soldier who will overthrow a constitution with a gun, you’re a running illegality. Whether you like it or not and the law says that thing is punishable by death”.
