Former President Rawlings has launched a blistering attack on Anita De-Sosoo describing her as a â€œcrookâ€ who uses dubious means to achieve her political desire.
He said, â€œShe is a crook. She’s lucky I don’t talk about her. What she did was pre-planned. Yeah, the woman on the stage, June 4, when she went on her knees. How can a woman come on her knees pleading for forgiveness for the party instead of accepting it graciously and letting it go.â€
According to Mr Rawlings, the first vice chairperson of the NDC decision to knell down to ask for forgiveness was staged, adding that, he wouldnâ€™t be swayed by her antics.
The founder of the opposition National Democratic Congress, NDC, is heard in a viral video accusing Anita De-Sosoo of pulling similar pranks to be elected the National Womenâ€™s Organizer of the NDC some years ago.
â€œThis same woman some time ago knelt before my wife, grabbed her feet and begged her for forgiveness. And she used this tactic to get party delegates to vote for her as the national womenâ€™s organizer,â€ the former president alleged.
Madam Anita De-Sooso used 39th anniversary of the uprising of June 4 which was held at the Madina Social Welfare School Park, to beg for clemency for all party members who offended him.
“Now to my father â€“ Founder, I know your children we have erred and I also know that you are a human being and you have also done something maybe it is not right.
“And I was so happy when I heard you say that when you brought a statement out, rendering an apology â€“ you are a hero. You are a hero. This shows that what you have thought me is still within me. If you are a leader, be prepared to say that I am sorry.
â€œIf you are a child, be prepared to say that daddy Iâ€™m sorry. So, I will take this opportunity on behalf of the party to kneel down before my dad â€“ please forgive us. Let us come together to build this country,” De-Sosoo pleaded.
