Rawlings asks Multimedia to have a documentary on the murder of Ya-Na

- Former President Jerry Rawlings has challenged Multimedia to take a look at the killing of a major Dagomba chief, an issue that shocked the nation

- This was after the former leader took issue with Mulimedia for what he thought was an unfair coverage on history

Former Ghana leader Jerry Rawlings has continued on the offensive against Multimedia in what he perceives as unfair documentation of history.

The influential media house produced and presented a documentary on a 1982 extra-judicial killing that rocked Ghana while Rawlings was a military leader.

Three judges of the Supreme Court of Ghana, Justices Poku Sarkodie, Cecelia Koranteng-Addow and Kwadwo Adjei Agyepong, were abducted from their homes at Ridge in Accra and killed on June 30, 1982.

As part of Multimedia’s attempt to unravel circumstances surrounding the killings of three judges in Ghana, a full documentary dubbed “Who killed the judges” was aired on October 2, 2018.

It regenerated the discussion on the matter and stimulated opinions from a cross-section of Ghanaians.

Rawlings initially mentioned that he was going to deal with Multimedia at a later time. But on Tuesday afternoon, Rawlings posted further misgivings on Twitter.

He challenged Multimedia to document the 2002 murder of 40 people in the palace of the Dagomba monarch, Ya-Na Yakaubu Andani.

According to him, the difference between the two murder cases is that “one group of four saw justice; the other group of 40 did no and has not”.
