Dear GhanaWeb reader,
Ghana has lost a colossus in the person of former President Jerry John Rawlings. The father of Ghana’s Fourth Republican Democracy united the country once again after his death on Thursday, November 12, 2020.
The country was deeply divided on party lines ahead of the December elections and immediately after his death was announced, political parties of both divide (NPP and NDC) halted their electoral campaigns and redirected their focus to honouring Rawlings’s memory.
The gestures didn’t come without issues as both parties were levelling accusations against each other over condolence book; involvement in funeral planning; respect of customs and traditions, among others.
