View Full Version : PHOTO: Rawlings Kids Show Up

All eyes were on three out of four children of former President Rawlings when they showed up at the Sunyani Coronation Park during the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flag-bearer primaries.

The three, Amina, Yaa Asantewa and the only son, last born-Kimathi, were dressed in NDC party colors and were seen carrying huge digital cameras with binocular lenses and telescopes.


It was the very first time the three had been seen together at a political event.

The only time they were seen at a public event in their public life was during the visit of American President Barrack Obama to Ghana.

It was apparent that Rawlings’ children had turned up to show support for their mum, who was contesting the flag-bearer primaries.

Indeed, they sat close to her and Kimathi was seen a couple of times walking to her seat for private whispers between mother and son.

Indeed, former Aide to the Rawlingses, Ambassador Victor Smith, had alleged publicly that Nana Konadu’s daughters played an influential role in her decision to contest for the flag-bearership slot.

Kimathi, the youngest of them all, is an exact carbon copy of his father. He has stayed away from the limelight and his presence at the congress grounds caused a stir.

He was dressed in a long-sleeved shirt and jeans and wore a traditional smock on top of the shirt, just as the father used to do when he was President.

Kimathi was also wearing a thick afro hairstyle, the same style Jerry Rawlings was noted for in the past.

He was initially reported to be working with a private bank in Accra but fresh reports say he has moved to an oil firm. Just like Jerry Rawlings, Kimathi has a huge sense of humor and a very courageous attitude.

His sister, Yaa Asantewa, aside a few instances, remained glued to her seat. Amina on the other hand was recently called to the Bar after she earlier studied Economics and Social Studies at Trinity College, University of Dublin.

Their big sister Ezanator was always in the news for either flying a military fighter jet, getting caught up and entangled during a parachute-jump or appearing on national television to explain how she excelled in her basic examinations.

Even at the threshold of her adult life, Ezanator again became a subject of news when her love relationship with Selassie Djantua hit the rocks.
