Former first lady, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings has revealed her biggest fear for her husband Jerry Rawlings during Ghana’s turbulent political periods.
The wife of the former head of state recounted her experiences when she appeared on Restoration With Stacy, a programme on TV3.
This was what she said when show host Stacy Amoateng asked her whether she ever feared she’ll one day wake up and be told that her husband was gone:
“Yea I had fears, I wouldn’t be normal if had no fears and I would not love him if I had no fears…..“one day, I was getting ready for school, I was then offering a course on management and while I was getting my child ready so I send her to my mother then, so that I can go to school. Then a lady came to knock on my door and asked where my husband was.
“I asked whether there was a problem because he hadn’t come home and so I thought she knew where he was. Then she asked to come in first so I let her in, then she said your husband is out there shooting people everywhere. As soon as she landed, I asked her, is this what you came here to tell me? with a gesture, I asked her to get out.”
“But after she left, I sat down for a while and I was worried especially due to past experiences, this is because he had been picked up on several occasions by the military intelligence. “So yes indeed as a wife I was worried and afraid.”
