Former President Jerry John Rawlings says it's unnecessary the attacks hurled on some celebrities who planned to hold a dumsor vigil.
Former President Jerry John Rawlings has described as “unfair” attacks being hurled at persons mounting pressure on government to fix the worsening power crisis.
According to him, although there may be one or more “justified” causes for the crisis, there is also the issue of mismanagement on the part of government.
Mr. Rawlings who expressed these sentiments in the Ga language during a courtesy call on him by former Black Stars skipper, Stephen Appiah, said, “Our sister Yvonne Nelson is expressing her concerns and insults are being rained on her. It’s not fair. Is that how to do politics?”
He noted that he is also being affected by the crisis, adding that, “I’m disappointed in so many things but once in a while I come out to speak.”
Stephen Appiah's call on the former President was to formally invite him to his dinner and testimonial match slated for June 26 and 27 respectively.
