Amina Agyeman Rawlings, the third daughter of late former president Rawlings, has revealed how the animals at home announced her father’s death.
According to her, Rawlings’ dogs gathered around his usual sitting spot at home and howled throughout the night until they were tired and eventually slept.
All this while, the family was oblivious to what was happening back at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital where their father had been on admission.
Amina made this revelation in the farewell tribute by children read at her father’s funeral.
She disclosed that Rawlings was a deep lover of animals, and he inculcated this in all of his children so much so that they also grew to love animals.
She revealed further that her father’s love for nature made him grow his own Garden of Eden full of different kinds of animals that lived in harmony when they could have eaten each other.
“From Jack Parlance your rooster to the wild geese who still think they own your home, to your doves, hawks, and your many dogs to name but a few,” Amina disclosed in her reading.
Meanwhile, Rawlings’ wife, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, had revealed earlier that he wanted them to elope to get married when they faced opposition with their love affair.
Konadu said she refused Rawlings’ suggestion because her family was of importance to her.
She also revealed in another report by YEN.com.gh that the late president Rawlings broke her virginity.
Also, a video of a young man who looks just like Rawlings from head to toe, and in everything, has amazed Ghanaians and they have concluded that he may be one of Rawlings’ sons.
However, a man has claimed that the young man is simply Kimathi’s friend. Ghanaians however are not convinced with this claim, owing to the striking resemblance of the man to JJ.
