Braimah Kamoko, the undefeated Ghanaian boxer popularly known as Bukom Banku has questioned the allegiance of former president Jerry John Rawlings and his wife, Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings to the ruling NDC.
He asked the founder of the party and his wife to stay committed in an interview with Daily Graphic on Friday where he questioned the current perception of the first family being in bed with the opposition NPP’s leader, Nana Akuffo-Addo.
The boxer said the status and influence of the couple in the ruling NDC were unquestionable and therefore asked them to stay committed to the party.
Bukom Banku said he wants to take a decision on the NDC as to whether to leave or stay and therefore wants the Rawlingses to make up their mind as to “whether those who formed the party are no longer interested in the party”.
Referring to what looks like a departure of the Rawlingses from the NDC, he asked: “How can you take us to the riverside, deep inside the river and jump out and leave us alone inside.”
The jovial boxer made a solemn appeal to former president Rawlings and his wife who he referred to as his grandparents to re-commit to the NDC for victory in 2016.
