While going on rounds at the event and visiting one stall to the other, late Jerry John Rawlings made a stop at a place where a lady was preparing what looked like banku.
In a bid to show his all-roundedness, Jerry John Rawlings took over the cooking and started stirring it expertly to the admiration of all those gathered.
