Ghana's John Jerry Rawlings: The first head of state to carry executions under military rule

In the developed countries like United States of America, United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, France etc, political leaders priority is to make things better for the masses. Their wish is to serve the people and make things better for them in a way that the people will acknowledge them as good politicians but in Africa, the story is quite different.

Ninety-nine percent of Africa politicians are inspired into politics by corruption without any plan to improve the welfare of the people. The idea or plan to loot the state, empty the government coffers, enrich themselves, feed and put their families into better institutions and positions, with stolen money banked at Swiss banks are the main priorities on the agendas.

the corrupt African head of States have no sympathy, emotions and do not know what suffering is because they are well fed with their families. To be in power for the rest of their lives, some become dictators and others try to create a one-party state to avoid the attack of opposition.The typical examples of such men are Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, Hosni Mubarak of Egypt (already stepped down after political chaos in his country) Muammar Ghadafi of Libya (yet to step down) and many others.

The desire of Ghana's former lady, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, to contest against president John Evans Atta Mills as the presidential candidate of the ruling National Democratic Congress(NDC) in the year 2012, on every grounds doesn't make sense. What do Konadu and her husband want in Ghana politics, after all, the crimes her husband committed in the political history of Ghana to fulfil his dreams as head of state?

Why must Konadu even at all try to do such thing against Atta Mills when both are members of the same party? There are so many raw materials in Ghana to satisfy the need of everyone but never enough to satisfy the greed of Konadu and her family. I know that academically Ghanaians are very intelligent people but if any Ghanaian could cast a vote to make this woman the president of Ghana, then there will be a room for people to question the integrity and intelligence of Ghanaians.

This is the time for every Ghanaian to be particularly aware that Konadu Rawlings' desire to contest as president of Ghana, is not do anything better for Ghanaians but greed. Ghanaians must continue to support president Atta Mills government to make NDC and other political parties strong and shouldn't allow the greed of the Rawlings family to collapse the party.
