A former Deputy Finance Minister, Kwaku Agyemang Manu has been wondering if former President John Kufuor ever snatched the girlfriend of Mr John Rawlings.

His comments as many do not seem to get why the two former leaders of the country do not get along as expected.

Mr Rawlings had during the occasion of the 35th Anniversary of the June 4 Uprising, accused Kufuor of being behind the country’s economic crisis and other corruption matters.

“I have said over and over again that Kufuor is responsible for setting in motion the moral and economic crisis that we are experiencing today, and I will say it again today. The investigation that Mills should have initiated never took place. But today let me give one very visible and concrete example of Kufuor’s mismanagement that we are all feeling the effects of” Rawlings declared in his statement.

“When Kufuor’s government removed four noughts from the cedi, he overnight abolished the people’s economy. He abolished the people’s economy because he abolished the means to exchange goods below the value of 1,000 old cedis” the country’s longest-serving president said.

But speaking on  Adom FM’s “Burning Issues” programme Wednesday, Kwaku Agyemang Manu suggested that Rawlings and Kufour might have clashed over a girl in the past.

Agyemang Manu who is also the Member of Parliament for Dormaa further wondered why Kufuor has been silent over these attacks from Rawlings.

He argued that the massive corruption under the Rawlings’ regime took Ghana to the infamous Highly Indebted Poor Country (HIPC) initiative, asking that: “If Kufuor was corrupt, how could he have implemented School Feeding Program, Metro Mass Transit (MMT) among other projects during his regime?”
