Dr. Zanetor Agyeman-Rawlings the daughter of late former Ghanaian President Jerry John Rawlings, has said that, they could not spend much time with their late father because of his position and his principles.
the Klottey Korle Constituency Member of Parliament (MP), said made the revelation during a round table discussion at a vigil held in honour of the late father, she said although their time together was always brief, every encounter had its wonderful remembrance.
“There was a threat to his life at some point and he didn’t want us to be a part of that, so he felt that if we lived in a separate location it kind of decrease the risk”.
“He also didn’t want us to grow up in airs of superiority by virtue of living in the Castle, it was just to give us a life as normal as possible.
“Which meant we didn’t see him as often, but when we did there was always something, he wanted to impact so much knowledge; teaching me and my siblings how to drive before our feet could even touch the gas pedal, teaching us how to drive the model plane, and to ride our bicycles,” she said.
The former president left behind a wife, former First Lady Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings, and four children.
The vigil was honored by dignitaries and people across other parts of the world, including government officials and members of the two political parties.
