Nathalie Yamb, the alleged second wife of the late former president Jerry John Rawlings, has spoken for the first time after making an appearance at his funeral.
In a post on her social media, Yamb expressed gratitude to the State, the Ghana Armed Forces, the family, and Ghanaians for giving the late former president a befitting burial.
''Thank you to the State, the Armed Forces, the Family and the People of Ghana for giving Jerry the send-off he deserved,'' her post read.
The rumoured second wife of the late Jerry Rawlings indicated that the founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) ''was larger than life'', stressing that he fought to return power to the people.
''He was larger than life. May he rest in power and watch over us as we keep his legacy alive: the sacralisation of justice, freedom, accountability and patriotism, and the fight to desanctify power and send it back to where it belongs: to the people.''
Yamb trumpeted that the late Ghanaian president was a reflection of true leadership worth emulating.
''If we want to teach African children about leadership, then we only need to show them the picture and tell them the story of Jeremiah John Rawlings.''
