Former president Jerry John Rawlings has called out the Editor-in-chief of the New Crusading Guide, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako for lying against him.
According to Mr. Rawlings, Baako lied to the National Reconciliation Commission (NRC) in 2002 about how the late Mawuli Goka was tortured by soldiers while in detention during the Rawlings regime.
Rawlings, in a rare interview with Kwaku Sakyi Addo on Asaase Radio, said his soldier were very professional and didn’t torture Goka as Baako claimed.
“Nobody did any such thing and professional soldiers don’t do things like that actually,” he said.
He added that Kweku wanted Editor-in-chief of the Daily Dispatch newspaper Ben Ephson to join him as a witness but the latter declined the offer as he believes Kweku was lying.
“I think he [Ben Ephson] knew this kind of makeup wasn’t good enough…just to poison the atmosphere against us,” he said.
