Member of parliament for Klottey Korle constituency, Zanetor Rawlings has thrashed widespread claims that she relied on her family name in her political career.
According to the 42-year-old, her success in politics is due to sheer hard work and nothing else.
Speaking to Etornam Sey on TV3’s New Day on Monday August 19, Zanetor Rawlings said her victory in the 2016 parliamentary elections was due to effective campaigning and not because of her father Jerry Rawlings, who is the longest serving head of state in the country.
“I was very much aware of the dynamics on the grounds. But I had been raised not to rely on my parents’ achievements to make it through life.
“I did a lot of work, we really combed through the constituency, we went from house to house literally. It wasn’t something that happened, it took a lot of hard work and a lot of team work and shared vision,” she said.
