…Her Apathy Towards Mahama & Parents Activities Killing Dream
There is an uneasy calm within the camp of the embattled National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate for Klottey Korley, Zanetor Rawlings.
Insiders reveal to The Herald that, an air of mistrust has engulfed the Zanetor camp with some members beginning to suspect that Zanetor is an extension of a grand plot by the Rawlings’ family to take over the governing party.
Indeed, some members of the Zanetor team, have been captured on tape bitterly lamenting about the utterances of ex-President Rawlings, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, and the non-involvement of Zanetor in the affairs of the NDC and the excellent performance of the Mahama administration.
Most of the members are currently confused, following the recent outburst by Zanetor’s father; ex-President Jerry John Rawlings, against the John Mahama administration.
They suspect they are being used, just like how they lured some hardworking young men like Michael Teye Nyaunu, Sidi Abubakar Musah, Dela Coffie, Namburr Berrick, Dr. Nii Armah Josiah Aryeh, and others from the NDC, who until the formation of National Democratic Party (NDP) were made to believe they were fighting for a genuine course to put the NDC government led by John Evans Atta Mills on track.
They realized almost too late that it was all about one person’s ego and ambition to be President, which the whole family partly or wholly
supported and secretly worked towards.
Since the NDP Congress at the Trade Fair which endorsed the candidature of Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings as it’s flagbearer for the 2016 Presidential Elections, it has been revealed by The Herald’s source that, many members have been ashamed, therefore, have avoided a couple of meetings the team has called.
Zanator, who frequents a popular, but exclusive restaurant lately, was spotted been escorted by different team members, who usually watch over her expensive Mercedes-Benz saloon car, whiles she wines and dines luxuriously.
After their recent media blitz over a Supreme Court judgment, the source said, a plan was hatched at their retreat from court to smear some top government officials, who they suspect are not sympathetic to their case.
They were of the view that, if they accused these innocent and loyal party members of threatening and attempting to eliminate some of its members, they could win more sympathy and also frighten their retreating supporters to bond in solidarity with each other.
Top on the list to smear according to our source is, Dr. Valerie Sawyer, who the team believes is the most unyielding leader opposition to Zenator’s challenged victory at the Klottey Korley polls.
They also listed some top Gov appointees with Ga-Dangme roots, as well as former appointees of the late Prof Mills from the Volta Region, who they claim are against their candidate, because they have not forgiven her father, Mr. Rawlings, for the mental torture he visited on the late President.
Our source say, many team members frequently seek assurance from each other, if they can trust Mr. and Mrs. Rawlings, and if Zanetor, will not be the trojan horse.
It will be recalled that, Mrs. Rawlings, who always wanted to lead the NDC even before her husband named Prof Mills as his successor in Swedru, clandestinely supported Mr. Eddie Anan, and later, deceived Dr Spio Gabrah to contest against Prof. Mills at the NDC Legon Congress in 2006.
She later craftily put herself up to first be elected as the Party’s Vice Chairman in Tamale on a deceptive message of reorganizing the Party.
The genuine frustrations of some party young folks, was later to be harvested in the formation of a Friends of Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings (Fonkar).
A vehicle she used with subtle backing of her family to torment President Mills’ Government, until she contested against him, but was squarely beaten at the Sunyani Congress, which led to her break away from the NDC to form the NDP.
The Herald’s source says, she remains bitter and feels undeserving people are profiting from the sweat of her family and has vowed to bring down the roof on them. Some members of Zanetor’s team are beginning to feel uncomfortable with her interest in her daughter’s campaign, when it is clear to them she doesn’t wish the NDC and John Mahama well.
One of the team members, who said he spoke with Michael Teye Nyaunu, says the former Member of Parliament for the Lower Manya Krobo Constituency regrets that the former first lady, exploited and used them to achieve her selfish gains and cautioned them to be careful in dealing with the Rawlings’ household.
With the team running out of luck with its team members, who are seeing through the possible plan, some stubborn members have been directed to launch a media attack on their perceived detractors and blame them for their troubles with the hope that they can exploit some sympathy from the NDC’s high and mighty.
More to come!
