A former bodyguard of former president Rawlings, Sergeant Mugu Frimpong has revealed that unknown persons claiming to be children of his master who popped up after his death are not the not Rawlings’ biological children.
He disclosed this on Adanse3 FM’s Nokware Mmer3, Saturday with Prof Sam while recounting his work experience with Mr Rawlings.
“The children I know of are the once Rawlings born with his wife, former First Lady Konadu Agyemang Rawlings; Zanetor Agyeman-Rawlings, Amina Rawlings, Yaa Asantewaa Rawlings and Kimathi Rawlings”, he said.
‘John Rawlings I know is not a womanizer, I never saw him cheating on his wife’, he revealed.
On his accord, there is nothing wrong with any of them trying to claim their inheritance or establish their existence but the channel in which they seek to do so is inappropriate. Charging these individuals to stop causing confusion in the Rawlings family and the Ghanaian populace, he suggested the children get a DNA test conducted to prove their legitimacy, rather than make such claims in the media.
Two women have on different instances claimed to be daughters of the late President in events leading up to his burial. The first, 52-year-old woman, Abigail Rawlings Mawutor who claims to be the first daughter of the late former President Jerry John Rawlings popped up after his death.
Another woman known as Kate Yeboah has also come out to claim that she is also the daughter of the late former president of Ghana, Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings. According to Kate, her mother met the late former president at Breman Asikuma where she resided, leading to a relationship that produced her.
