Former President Jerry Rawlings’ family and sympathizers gathered at the Holy Spirit Cathedral in Adabraka, Accra, to commemorate a year since his death.

Zanetor and Kimathi Rawlings, the late president’s children, took turns eulogizing their father, Ghana’s longest-serving Head of State who died on November 12, 2020, after a brief illness.

Zanetor Rawlings praised her father’s anti-corruption ideals, among other things.

“The journey of combating corruption has been a complex journey for Ghana, but while you lived, you never stopped championing that cause,” “Your loss was a loss to the whole country, and the pain one felt was by most Ghanaians,” Zanetor Rawlings read.

Kimathi Rawlings expressed the Rawlings family’s gratitude to the government and the National Democratic Congress, which Mr Rawlings founded.

“We are very grateful for the huge presence and love showed to your founder and the family. We count on your continued support.”

Former President John Dramani Mahama, one of the NDC stalwarts present, paid tribute, saying the late former President, Jerry John Rawlings, will be remembered forever.

“It [His memory] will live forever. Today we mourn him. It is exactly one year since he passed, and yet he remains a colossus in the history of this country,” he said to the press after the service.
