PHOTOS: Ex-Prez Rawlings body lying in state goes viral despite a ban on cameras at viewing

Published

on

A picture of the body of former President Jerry John Rawlings has gone viral despite a warning by state Security against photographing the body of the statesman.

The picture which original source remains unknown has been shared several times on social media, showing the face of the late former President almost as if he was merely asleep and could be nudged to wake up.

Spotting his afro grey hair and beard which became his signature look in the Covid-19 outbreak, Mr. Rawlings was dressed in full military honours although the uniform is not entirely visible from the picture.

The final rites for the ex president started last Sunday with a requiem mass at the Holy Spirit Cathedral and a vigil held in his honour at the Air Force Mess in Accra.

Laying in state is between today and tomorrow after which burial will take place on Wednesday at the Military cemetery.

There is public filing past of the remains at the Accra International Conference Center, AICC from where it is believed the image came from.

There is strict observance of coronavirus protocols at the premises with all present wearing face masks, from the officials on duty to the members of public filing past.

Contempt case: Go and sin no more – Supreme Court forgives remorseful Ayine

Published

on

The Supreme Court has discharged former Deputy Attorney General, Dr Dominic Ayine who was facing contempt charges.

Dr Ayine was charged with contempt following words he used in his commentary on the election petition case.

He was subsequently ordered to render a public apology; the same medium through which he was found to have scandalized the court and brought its name into disrepute.

The court’s order was subsequently complied with as Dr. Ayine rendered a public apology to both the bench and the bar for undermining the sanctity of the apex court.

In court today, Thursday, February 25, 2021, president of the court, Chief Justice Kwasi Anin-Yeboah noted that the contemner had purged himself as ordered and would be discharged without any further punishment.

Addressing the court, lead counsel for Dr. Ayine, Frank Becheem said the former Deputy Attorney General had learned his lesson and will sin no more.

Also appearing in solidarity with Dr. Ayine was lead counsel for the Electoral Commission in the election petition matter, Justine Amenuvor.

Describing Dr. Ayine as his classmate, best man and close friend, Mr. Amenuvor thanked the court for its magnanimity towards the former Deputy Attorney General.

“All diplomats supporting the legalisation of LGBT should be sacked from the country” Sam George

Published

The Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Hon Sam George, has expressed his opinion against the legalisation of LGBT.

He said all diplomats pushing for its legalisation should be expelled from the country.

Speaking on GH Today on GHOne TV Thursday, the lawmaker said Ghana has been too tolerant of high profile foreign officials supporting homosexuality in its territory.

“We will not allow anybody to bring homosexuality or love with animals into our country and tell us it is a right- It is not a right. It is a mental disorder, Our law says it is illegal, you Don’t have a right.

“I have gone out publicly to demand that the foreign ministry summons and issues either a strong warning or an expulsion notice to the Australian Ambassador, the Danish Ambassador and the Rep of the EU in Ghana because the letters of credence they presented to HE President Akufo-Addo when they were nominated by their respective countries to come and serve in Ghana mandates them to respect the laws of Ghana,” he said.

On Wednesday, the office of the LGBTQI in Ghana was shut down by police forces who raided the facility located at Ashongman in Accra.

The closure came after intense public pressure was placed on the government to shut down the facility, which was supposed to be a safe haven for gay people in the country.

Ghanaians were just not interested in that and mounted sustained pressure until government relented and shut down the place.

Ghanaians are intensely interested in the lives of LGBT individuals despite claiming they hate the activity.

There’s no question people are interested in the shut down office – what did its interior look like?

Below we reproduce some photos of the LGBT office taken after the police raided the facility.
