FORMER PRESIDENT JERRY JOHN RAWLINGS CONFIRMED DEAD

Credible information reaching Nkonkonsa.com indicates that former President Jerry John Rawlings is dead.

According to a closed family source who confirmed the unfortunate news to Nkonkonsa.com, the former president passed on, today, November 12, 2020 after a brief illness.

The sad news was also confirmed on Peace FM’s midday news, this afternoon.

Jerry John Rawlings was born in Accra on 22nd June, 1947, to a Ghanaian mother from Dzelukope, near Keta, in the Volta Region, and a Scottish father.

Background of Rawlings

Jerry John Rawlings was born in Accra on 22nd June, 1947, to a Ghanaian mother from Dzelukope, near Keta, in the Volta Region, and a Scottish father.

He was educated at Achimota School where he obtained his General Certificate of Education ‘O’ Level in 1966.

He enlisted as a Flight Cadet in the Ghana Air Force in August, 1967, and was subsequently selected for officer cadet training at the Ghana Military Academy and Training School, Teshie, in Accra.

In March, 1968, he was posted to Takoradi in the Western Region to continue his course.

He passed out in January, 1969, as a commissioned Pilot Officer. He won the coveted “Speed Bird Trophy” as the best cadet in flying and airmanship.

He earned the rank of Flight-Lieutenant in April, 1978. He was an efficient officer with a close rapport with his men.

During his service with the Ghana Air Force, he witnessed the deterioration of discipline and morale, reflecting the corruption of the regime of the Supreme Military Council (SMC) at that time.

As promotion brought him into contact with the privileged classes and their social values, his awareness of the injustices in society was sharpened.

He was thus regarded with some unease by the SMC. He read widely and discussed social and political ideas with a growing circle of like-minded friends and colleagues.

On May 28, 1979, Flt.-Lt. Rawlings, together with six others, appeared before a General Court Martial in Accra, charged with leading a mutiny of junior officers and men of the Ghana Armed Forces on 15th May, 1979. There was strong public reaction, especially after his statement had been read in court, explaining the social injustices that had prompted him to act.

The ranks of the Armed Forces, in particular, expressed deep sympathy with his stated aims. When he was scheduled for another court appearance on 4th June, 1979, Flt.-Lt. Rawlings was sprung from custody. With the support of both military and civilians, he led a revolt, which decisively ousted the Supreme Military Council from office and brought the Armed Forces Revolutionary Council (AFRC) into being.

The AFRC, under the chairmanship of Flt.Lt. Rawlings, carried out a “house-cleaning exercise” aimed at purging the Armed Forces and society at large of corruption and graft as well as restoring a sense of moral responsibility and the principles of accountability and probity in public life.

Meanwhile, following the programme already set in motion before the 4th June Uprising for civilian administration, general elections were held.

On 24th September, 1979, the AFRC handed over to the civilian Government of the People’s National Party (PNP) under President Hilla Limann.

On 31st December, 1981, Flt. Lt. Rawlings led a section of the Armed Forces to overthrow the PNP administration. A Provisional National Defence Council (PNDC), composed of both civilian and military members, was established, with Flt-Lt. J.J. Rawlings as the Chairman.

His interests include reading, building model aircraft, horse-riding and swimming. He is married to Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings with whom he has four children – three girls and a boy.

Flt-Lt. Rawlings ceased to be a member of the Ghana Armed Forces with effect from September 14, 1992. He formed the National Democratic Congress, which contested and won the 1992 Presidential and Parliamentary elections. He and the party again won the 1996 elections.

His term of office ends in the year 2000.

He is the joint recipient of the 1993 World Hunger Prize. He holds an Honorary Doctor of Law Degree from Medgar Evers College, City University of New York and Lincoln University Doctorate Degree for Diplomacy and Development.

COURT ORDERS PSYCHIATRIC EXAMINATION OF ‘DR UN’

The Asokore Mampong District Court, presided over by Her Worship, Portia Molly Sally, has ordered a medical examination of self-acclaimed Global Ambassador for the United Nations (UN), Kwame Fordjour, popularly known as ‘Dr. UN, for organising fake awards.

According to the trial judge, the mental fitness of an accused person is a prerequisite to a fair trial and that it was important for Dr UN to have the mental capacity to understand and appreciate court proceedings.

A ‘diplomat’ and ‘global ambassador’ by self-description, with a doctorate degree that has its veracity as questionable as his personality, Mr Fordjour accomplished a scam on a magnitude almost never experienced in the country.

The court has, however, granted bail to the organiser of one of the country’s most controversial award schemes at the amount of GH¢ 15, 000 with two sureties to be justified.

‘Dr UN’ was arrested on Friday, October 16, 2020, at the premises of Kumasi-based radio station, Hello FM by the Police after an interview.

‘Dr UN’ is facing trial for defrauding by false pretenses from four different complainants.

Facts

Presenting the facts of the case to court, Inspector Samuel Mensa, disclosed the complainants, in this case, are renowned members of society, directors of some institutions and also a district chief executive, all residing at different locations within the Kumasi Metropolis and its environs in the Ashanti region.

The Prosecutor added that the accused is a self-styled coordinator of Global Public Service, a non-legally existing Non-Governmental Organization said to be with the United Nations (UN) and working in Ghana.

According to the prosecutor, Inspector Samuel Mensah, during the months of July and August 2018, the accused, with the intent to defraud, went to the complainants with letters and memorandum to the effect that they won an award from the office of the UN Ghana.

He added the accused went on to convince the unsuspecting complainants that the said award named as ‘The United Nations Gold Star Honour of Excellence Leadership Award’ was to be conferred on them by the UN at the Great Hall of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUS) to be followed by a so-called Red-carpet Dinner reception to be held in honour of the recipients and their followers who were to pay GH¢1,000.00 each for the so-called Red-carpet reception.

“My Lord convinced about this false representation, the complainants went ahead and paid different sums of money to the accused through his MTN mobile money account and bank numbers,” Inspector Mensa noted.

The Prosecutor told the court that on the 3rd day of August 2018, the complainants gathered at the Great Hall of the KNUST at 6:30 pm in anticipation of a memorable event.

“But after they had waited for more than three hours, complainants became agitated only to be informed that the programme would no longer take place,” he told the court.

Inspector Mensa stressed the complainants then begun to demand for the money they had paid for the so-called Red-carpet Dinner reception.

According to the prosecution, the accused failed to refund the money to the complainants, hence a scuffle ensued and the Police were called where accused was arrested and handed over to the KNUST Police for necessary action.

The accused admitted having collected the various sums of money from the complainants but stated that due to some circumstances beyond his control, the programme could not take place.

The organiser for the infamous ‘Global Blueprint Excellence Awards’, which has been described by many as a scam following revelations that it had no affiliation with the UN as he had touted, Dr. UN, through his counsel, Kwame Adofo, told the court that all charges levelled against him will be contested.

By court

The presiding judge, Her Worship Portia Molly Sally, ordered a psychiatric examination of Dr UN.

“In accordance with Section 133 (1) of Act 30, I am not certain that the first accused is of sound mind to stand trial or to plea to the charges without a scientific examination. It is, therefore, prudent to hold on to the trial and order that the first accused should be medically examined,“ the presiding judge ruled.

IF SOCIETY STOPS LIKING NUDE PICTURES; NO WOMAN WILL GO NUDE – Actress, Irene Opare

Actress Irene Opare has blamed the Ghanaian society over the influx of nude pictures and videos of women in the country.

Not long ago, social media influencer Akuapem Polo was incriminated for posting on her social media handle a nude picture of herself standing in front of her son to mark his birthday.

Something that seemed to be an action to celebrate her toils and how she has been able to raise the kid by herself took a turn for the worse when a child rights organization reported her to the Gender Minister and the Police.

Akuapem Polo posting her nude picture is just a fraction of the nude postings on social media as it has become a new normal for most ladies, popularly called ‘slay queens’, to pose nude to attract social media following and/or earn a living.

Speaking in an interview with Nkonkonsa.com, Irene Opare was of the view that it is of no fault of nude women to go nude stressing it is the society that has empowered them.

To her, should the society or their social media followers frown on the act, this trend of going nude will stop.

“If they go naked and don’t get likes. If they don’t 150000 likes, they will stop undressing themselves. They will know the people don’t like it. But if she dresses up and gets 150000 likes, she will start putting on dress. Do you get it? But if she goes nude and people compliment her telling her how nice her body, stomach, buttocks and breasts are, and people say it and give them money; you know, so that’s why they do it. I don’t blame them. That’s where the society is now. That’s what the society wants, so they’re giving it to you.’’

She stated categorically that she sees nothing wrong with a lady going nude to make ends meet.

“…they’re big girls. They’re not twelve years. If it’s someone who is aged 10, 11 or 12 and I see her nude, I will go to here house personally and beat her. But these are big girls, when someone reaches 18 years; she is old. And like I always tell them that this is their world. Our world was different. This is your world, social media and so forth; use it positively to make money out of it. But most of them choose to go nude negatively, do stuff negatively and they still make money out of it.

“Because it’s like this is what the current generation likes. That’s why these girls go nude. Because they go nude and they make billions out of the nudity. It’s not good. I haven’t said it is right but for me, as a woman, I won’t criticise it too much because it is their decision…You do what you like. They’re not children; they’re grown up and they feel this is what gets them money, fame and that is it. So, they do it more and they’re still doing it, and I have less to talk about it.’’

Nonetheless, she emphasised that “I won’t advise my child to go nude. If I see my child has gone nude, I will call her and say ‘hey, no way!’ Me, personally, I would not advise anybody to do it but like I’m saying they’re old enough to know what is good and what is bad. If they choose to do that to make money, fine, that’s their choice. I don’t have anything against them.’’.
