I feel cheated because Rawlings’ death was too easy- Ignatius Kutu Acheampong’s daughter laments

Daughter the late military Head of state of Ghana President Ignatius Kutu Acheampong, Nana Serwaa Acheampong has expressed her disappointment at how easy a death former President Jerry John Rawlings had.

The former President, Jerry John Rawlings was announced dead on Thursday, November 12th, 2020 after a brief illness and stay at the Korle Bu Teaching hospital.

His death came as a shock to many Ghanians with a mixture of reactions to the news.

Ms Nana Serwaa Acheampong was amongst the group who felt there was no need mourning the late President.

According to her, Rawlings had an easy death while her late dad, Kutu Acheampong was shot dead.

According to her, she grew up fatherless because her father was executed through an order from Rawlings.

 Kutu Acheampong who ruled Ghana from 13 January 1972 to 5 July 1978, was deposed in a palace coup and was later executed by firing squad.

Read Nana Serwaa’s post below:

“Now he’s dead, and somehow I feel robbed, cheated because unlike my father, Rawlings’ death was too easy, too comfortable probably. Death by firing squad, that’s how my father died, when I was just 6 years old. At the time I didn’t understand, but as I grew up, it started to become clearer, I had no one to call father.Now I think, his children and I are the same fatherless! But at least they grew up knowing their father, they grew up being provided for and protected by their father. So no we are not the same. Rawlings took my father away from me by firing squad, leaving me with no father to provide for me or protect me. Rawlings is dead and I feel cheated.If there is an afterlife where you meet those who have gone before, I wonder what Rawlings will say to my father, who showed him kindness, and all the others he killed so ruthlessly.In this life, Rawlings never acknowledged the pain he caused so many of us, never said sorry for our loss or showed remorse. Nothing! So Rawlings is dead, to me his death was too easy, too comfortable, unlike the death he gave my father and countless others. Aside from this I feel nothing about the man, except pity for his children who now know the pain of losing a father.”- Kutu Acheampong’s daughter Nana Serwaa
