Fiery sports presenter Countryman Songo has recounted with fondness how Dr Zanetor Rawlings, the first daughter of the late former president Jerry John Rawlings saved him from the clutches of hunger.
The ‘Fire-Man’ shared his intriguing story on Asempa FM as seen below;
“There was a day I was famished. It was break time…one interesting thing was that Zanetor had bodyguards meaning all other students had maximum protection. Students who attended Achimota those days felt so proud. You will mostly spot her car and the bodyguards monitoring every move.
I was hungry and went looking for my cousin, thinking I will get some food. I spotted Zanetor setting alone so I approached her. I said hello and she responded calmly and asked how I was also doing.
I said I was hungry and so she offered me her toast and tea in her flask, I ate it. The interesting thing was that I took food from the president’s daughter.
Zanetor was a fantastic student. She swept all the awards on our speech and prize-giving day. We all cheered her not because of her status but based on merit. She was a brilliant student, even Twi language, she did great, she was lovely.
You won’t see her all over but she was approachable and lovely.”
