In a Series of Facebook Posts, Mr. Akwasi A Afrifa Akoto indicated the death of Jerry John Rawlings is not tragic enough. He wrote:

“This death is not tragic enough….
Unlike the Osagyefo who died miserably in a far away country….
And unlike my mentor and my inspiration, the Arch-Tribalist Awoonor who also died tragically in a far away nation…..
Well…, maybe the spirit of the Sika Dwa intervened to spare him a tragic death…after all, the children and spouse are subjects of Sika Dwa….
They have hailed and egg on any champion Atta who had attempted to bring down the Sika Dwa …to their own demise…
When even the British imperialists couldn’t tackle….


Champion Attas will come…
Champion Attas will go, miserably and tragically….
But the Sika Dwa will continue to live long and prosper…so woe to future Champion Attas….
Now… I am in such an ecstatic mood so much so that if any hypocrite comes on this thread to do mouth-mouth, I shall rain insults on him like the day he was born…
Then again, maybe the way and manner the “babies with sharp” dealt with him and how his own party repudiated him were tragic enough and probably worse than death…
Nonetheless, condolences to menua baa and me wofasefuo…”

Mr. Akwasi A Afrifa Akoto further  added that for some 30 years, Ghananians have celebrated and have upheld June 4 and the killings of people’s relatives who were President’s and generals. Mr. Akwasi A Afrifa Akoto in a Facebook post wrote;

Hypocrites and parasites….

“JJ do something before you die…”

For some 30 years, Ghananians have celebrated and have upheld June 4 and the killings of presidents, generals, fathers and mothers….

…and every single June 4 that they did lay wreaths and did pray and did play the national anthem, they were simply celebrating with joy over the deaths of other people’s fathers and mothers and uncles and aunties and brothers and sisters….

Hypocrites and parasites……
