A New Patriotic Party (NPP) loyalist has blamed the death of ex-President Jerry John Rawlings on opposition leader John Dramani Mahama, saying he will also taste his share of death someday.
According to Hajia Fati, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) presidential candidate will die like an animal for having a hand in the death of Mr Rawlings.
In a 32 seconds video posted by political activist Kwame A Plus and sighted by Ghana Guardian, the vociferous NPP woman is seen raining causes on Mr Mahama for killing JJ Rawling to win the upcoming December 7 polls. Hajia Fati also accused John Mahama of murdering his predecessor, Prof John Evans Attah Mills.
"It's John Mahama who killed Rawlings. John Mahama, you've killed Rawlings for power? You'll die like a fowl. You also killed Atta [refering to former President Mills]. As for Atta, you made him a fool and subsequently strangulated him. John Mahama is now in Ashanti region so beware Asantehene, so he doesn't kill you too", she said.
A Plus has however condemned the viral video saying it is "unfair" and "below the belt". He has since called on the leadership of the NPP to also come out publicly to condemn the "disappointing" act.
"Hajia, this is below the belt. This is very unfair. Every right thinking person in the NPP, (of cause there are many) must condemn this. Hajia I'm disappointed in you. You are my person. But this is very disappointing", Said A Plus.
