Rawlings wants to stage another coup – Boakye Gyan

A former ally to Ex-President Rawlings and a key member of the 1979 June 4 uprising, Major (Retd) Boakye Gyan, has alleged that the former President wants to stage another coup.

According to the security expert, Mr. Rawlings’ constant hacking away at previous and current governments for apparent inaction, corruption among others shows that he is preparing grounds for another coup.

He was speaking on Adom FM’s morning show, Dwaso Nsem on Monday on former President Rawlings’ speech during the commemoration of the June 4 uprising in Kumasi over the weekend.

In his speech, the former President is quoted as saying “It is time to take up the party, government and the country, clean them and hand them over to a more responsible leader.”

And Major Boakye Gyan says those statements should not be taken lightly because being a former soldier and an ally to the
Rawlingses; he understands the implications of those comments attacking both the ruling and past governments.

He said Mr. Rawlings’ labeling of President Mills a failure even before his tenure in office ends and his calling former President Kufuor a corrupt leader and a thief sums up his intention to take over the ruling of the country by using his wife as a tool.

He chastised the ex-President for wanting the whole country to believe that his administration was the best ever in history of the country.

He also stated that the former President should be summoned to The Hague to answer for the overthrow of a constitutionally elected government of the late Dr Hilla Limann.

When asked whether he is afraid of Mr. Rawlings, Osahene Boakye Gyan said he wasn’t adding “only one bullet can kill me”.
