Why is Rawlings Always Mad at President Mills?


    Former President Rawlings is losing his credibility, integrity and self-respect at the rate of the ticking of the clock with each passing day. I can see him as needing urgent psychiatric assistance if I was to be honest with him.
    His obsessive fear of seeing NPP regain power sooner is making him a near deranged person. Is his stated obsession without underlying medical condition? Certainly, it is. What a frustrated person he is!
    He has constantly without break been piling up pressure on President Mills to prosecute the perceived former NPP corrupt government officials. His main reason for hating President Mills to the hilt is his failure to jail all the NPP officials in line with his warped preposterous thinking. How serious is Rawlings, concerned intelligent people are asking? A man who ensured quite an absurd clause was safely
    entrenched in the Ghana Constitution at his behest to guarantee his safety, protect him from prosecution, exonerates him from all blame, is constantly getting on President Mills’ nerves with silly hypocritical demands. “Arrest all former NPP corrupt government officials. Investigate NPP for the murders of Ya’ na Yakubu Andani and Alhaji Mobilla”, he continually orders in lamentation. His requests though genuine as they may sound are simply a nuisance buzzing sound in the ears of many.
    Who is Rawlings at all to tell President Mills what to do? Are his hands not dripping of innocent blood? Were the members of his AFRC/PNDC/NDC governments and himself not as corrupt as the NPP Ministers he is calling for their heads or their imprisonment? Has he, or have his governments not murdered many people quite unprecedented in the annals of Ghana? I deplore corruption and murders in their every form and shape of manifestation but does Rawlings of all dubious characters have the moral justification to prescribe solutions in such hypocritical manner?
    Strip Rawlings of that obnoxious “Indemnity Clause”. I am always being teased by my White colleagues at work whenever Rawlings does his nuts. They wonder why Ghanaians have in this modern day and age allowed and continue to permit their Constitution to create a monster in the person of Rawlings? Without that silly shield of “No accountability but Indemnity all the way” that he is wearing, he would never have had that shameless audacity to open his mouth to spew garbage as he often does. Yes, I support with all my heart, soul and mind any call for the prosecution and incarceration of any corrupt Ghanaian politician regardless of their political party affiliation. But should that call be selective as opined by Rawlings? The answer is No. It should be general and all encompassing.
    Rawlings is simply scared of Nana Akuffo-Addo Danquah. Rawlings by my in-depth investigation is found to be scared of dwarfs. Seeing Nana is a midget as he says, likely to suffer from a short man’s syndrome, he will not tolerate Rawlings’ preposterous allegations without dragging him to court to substantiate them. He will also not hesitate to seek the removal of that “Indemnity Clause” that has created a
    monster, via a national referendum to render Rawlings a humble human being. Nana will perform a unique miracle by turning a fearful monster into a docile human being. What a magic!
    With the NPP possibly coming into power with Nana Akuffo-Addo as the President, Rawlings sees the noose as closing upon his neck. All his evil deeds will be exposed. Former President Kufuor boxed him with kid’s gloves; Nana Akuffo-Addo will knock him out wearing men’s gloves. Is it not this that is driving Rawlings crazy?
    No matter how long and how far he goes crying, the long rope fallen into his hands is forming a noose. It says, “When a long rope falls into the hands of an unwitting hand, it does not take long for a noose to form to hang himself”.
    Please do Rawlings the biggest favour by securing him urgent medical assistance. His behaviour is irrational, unbecoming and unbefitting for the status of a Former President of Ghana. President Mills will not allow himself to be unduly manipulated to do the unthinkable by a former dictator without morals. President Mills was a God-send gift to deal Rawlings a never forgetting blow. Rawlings finds himself now in a situation of “killing me softly” in the hands of Atta Mills. President Mills who sees himself as no longer Rawlings’ former School boy will forever remain nonchalant to Rawlings’ orders as long as they are unreasonable as they have always been. He can bad-mouth President Mills as much as he wants, unless he begins to talk sense as an elder Statesman, he will always be ignored; his orders, screams, insults etc, fall will fall on Mills’ deaf ears.
    More grease to the elbows of President Mills and the incoming President, Nana Akuffo-Addo Danquah, the Ghana’s ray of HOPE.
