James Kwabena Bomfeh has lambasted Ex-President Jerry John Rawlings leading the celebration of June 4 uprising.
Mr. Rawlings will deliver a keynote address Monday, June 4, 2018 marking the 39th anniversary of the uprising.
The event that takes place at the Madina Social Welfare School Park will also see other speakers including NDC party Chairman, Kofi Portuphy, Dan Abodakpi, Fritz Baffour, Samuel Nuamah Donkor, Ebi Bright and Lawrence Lamptey.
The June 4th uprising occurred in Ghana resulting from bad governance and corruption within the Army and was sparked when the then military government put Mr. Rawlings on trial for attempting to overthrow the government on May 15th 1979 and since then the Ex-President has been joined by scores of fanatics to commemorate the day.
Commenting on the event on Peace FM’s ‘Kokrokoo’, James Kwabena Bomfeh, popularly called Kabila took Mr. Rawlings to the cleaners as he wondered if he (Rawlings) has a streak of shame left in him.
According to him, June 4th is a reminder of the evil and trauma that some Ghanaians underwent which Mr. Rawlings was a “beneficiary”, and questioned the logic for the celebration of June 4th in the country.
To Kabila, if Mr. Rawlings had “conscience”, he wouldn’t honor June 4th because he played a significant role in the torture that was meted out to some Ghanaians during such times.
Chronicling events that took place prior to June 4th, 1979, Kabila told host Kwami Sefa Kayi that the Ex-President is the root of corruption in the country and so stated categorically that “he has no locus” to continue to mark June 4th, stressing that “in fact, corruption; he conceives of it. It is within him in terms of his thinking”.
