The Rawlingses will have to live with the results of the vote at Suyani which exposed them as possibly the most unpopular couple in Ghana.At one stroke Rawlings has lost all legitimacy as the the so-called "voice of the people" .It now emerges that all along Rawlings , the "champion of the people" was only talking and representing Rawlings and nobody else.All these years the Rawlingses lived a lie and succeeded in fooling everybody.But as Abraham Lincoln said."You can fool all the people some of the time .You can fool some of the people all the time but you cannot fool all the peole all of the time".We now know that emperor n him.His nakedness revealed is truly horrible to behold.In one stroke the man has been reduced from a giant(albeit an inflatable rubber one)to a midget now in danger of being trampled underfoot by commoners.They say pride goes before a fall .It does not pay to have a haughty spirit.For years Rawlings held everyone in utter contempt.The man was beyond the law.He was in fact the law and held the power of life and death over Ghanaians.How did he handle this awesome responssibilty? He killed, tortured countless Ghanaians.He consficated the properties and assets deemed enemies.Power drunk Rawlings came to believe that he was untouchable.Rawlings is roughly at the same stage Gbagbo was 2 months before his final collapse. Rawlings now stands accused of many many grave crimes.I fear for him.I truly fear for him.
