Editor in Chief of the New Crusading Guide Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has commiserated with former President Jerry John Rawlings.
Mr Baako on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo show on October 14, 2020, expressed his condolence to his fierce rival as Mr Rawlings lost his mother last month.
Mr Baako also revealed on the show that he has not met Rawlings since 1979 but will be willing to do so now.
“I express my condolences to Rawlings and the family, I think it is the right thing to do. As to whether I will personally go to his house, I ask Who am I. The President, Vice have all gone to see him. The GJA have done same and what they should have done is invite me to join the delegation. My problem with Rawlings is political and not personal, I have said it several times he has a perfect sense of humour, it’s his politics I detest. If the GJA had invited me to go with them, it would have been the first time meeting Rawlings since November 1979, we have never met since then. As much as he is a nice personality he also has a certain spark he can as what I am doing at his residence in an angry manner”
Kweku Baako this year hinted he is compiling a book about his real life stories, particularly to give a proper historical account about the brutalities he suffered under Ex-President Jerry John Rawlings’ watch.
The seasoned journalist, who is a colossus when it comes to Ghana’s political history, made this known while responding to a recent comment by Mr. Rawlings regarding why he, Kwesi Pratt and others were thrown into jail.
Mr. Rawlings had reportedly said Mr. Baako and a host of others who were incarcerated were perceived as threats to the peace and stability of his government.
