Rawlings Tells Story 11/15/2008
Former President Jerry Rawlings, as if confessing under a hex, has admitted that he was the reason for the brutal murder of General Odartey-Wellington, a former Army Commander.


Mr. Rawlings further warned that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, flag-bearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), is committing the same offence for which the late Army Chief was ghastly murdered during the June 4, 1979 military insurrection. The former President, in the bizarre confession captured on tape, said General Odartey-Wellington, whose son Felix was detained for calling Rawlings a conman, was killed because he was spreading reports at the military barracks that he, Rawlings, had credited ‘yo ke gari’ for breakfast.


He said though the allegation was true, the subject annoyed the junior ranks in the military because they were beneficiaries of the credited ‘yo ke gari’ and thus took advantage of the 1979 uprising to spray several bullets into the Army Chief.Sounding bitter, Mr. Rawlings said he had cause to believe that Nana Akufo-Addo is currently using the ‘yo ke gari’ subject to ridicule him. “One of the Generals who got badly mauled down; they sprayed him with bullets and he stopped; he was called Odartey-Wellington because he also at that time, after the 15th May mutiny when we were arrested, was going down the Unit and sort of messing up my name.


One of the allegations he used was that I was a useless officer who could not even afford a meal; and that I was doing so and so. “Meanwhile, the soldiers he was talking to came from those Units and they knew what happened. He was invoking and provoking hatred against himself with that kind of story. No wonder when the country exploded on June 4th, he was one person who died terribly even though he was one of the fine ones among that corrupt lot,” Rawlings stated at his Ridge residence during an interaction with a group of students who had visited him from two universities in Nigeria.
