Vice Chair of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Anita Desoso, has launched a scathing attack on Former President Rawlings for describing her as a “crook” and a “hypocrite”.
According to her , Rawlings, who is the founder of the NDC, is incapable of making decisions on his own, adding that the woes of the NDC are as a result of hatred from the former First Lady, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings.
Speaking at a recent event in Accra, the former president indicated that the act by Madam Desoso who knelt before him to apologize and beg for forgiveness on behalf of the NDC for its ‘sins’ during the 39th anniversary of the June 4 Uprising, is fond of using cunning means to get her way.
He stated; “She’s a crook. She’s lucky I don’t talk about her that much”
“What she did was pre-planned. Yes the woman who went on her knees on stage on June 4,”he added
Former president Rawlings further recalled Ms Desoso using a similar groveling tactic on his wife, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings, to gain favour to win the Women Organiser 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]”, Mr Rawlings added.
But De Sosoo interacting with Okay FM, Monday, June 18, said her sufferings at the hand of the former Ghanaian Head of State are as a result of her bad relationship with Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings.
“Nana Konadu is manipulating Rawlings. Rawlings of late does not attend NDC events but rather NPP events. I am telling Nana Konadu that is it because of her bribe that I refused to take and prevailed upon the women in the NDC to vote against her candidature that is why she is angry about me? I will refer her to the book of Judges chapter 14 and 15 going. Sampson was someone whom God had blessed but because he loved Delilah and Delilah did not loved him and had an ulterior motive; she shaved the hair of Sampson and weakened him. Later Sampson became blind. Sampson then told God that Father I have sinned against you so please send an angel to come and rescue me. I keep on telling people that somebody could be your enemy today and later become your savior. Later, Delilah prayed to God to ask for forgiveness. So, when Delilah repented and went to Sampson, Sampson carried Delilah and had wanted to throw her away. That was when the chains around Sampson got broken. So, there is a way out for Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings. She should do something about her husband because he is not like that”, she noted.
