Dr. Zilla Limann, the daughter of Ghana’s former President Dr. Hilla Limann, has vowed never to attend the funeral of former president, Jerry John Rawlings should the latter die.
Dr. Limann made this known whilst speaking on Zylofon FM on Monday.
She was asked by Blakk Rasta if she will attend Rawlings’ funeral if he dies before her since he [Rawlings] attended her father’s funeral.
Dr Limann said in attending someone’s funeral, there should be a connection between the two parties and that she has no link with Flight Lieutenant Jerry John Rawlings.
“Me? No! No! Not at all. I don’t know him like that to go to his funeral…For me, I think there is really personal a thing. I need to know you or your family or there has to be a link or whatever. It will not even cross my mind” she stated.
Dr. Limann added that despite all these, they (Limann’s family) have no bad intentions about the former president reiterating that the decision is just a personal one.
Dr. Hilla Limann was elected in 1979 and sworn into office on the 24th September 1979 as president of Ghana’ third Republic.
He was overthrown on the 31st December 1981 by Flight Lieutenant Jerry John Rawlings then leader of AFRC who had handed over power to him for about two-and-a-half years. He died on the 23rd January 1998 after a failed attempt to relaunch his political career under the Fourth Republican Constitution which started in 1992.
Dr. Zilla Limann is the sixth child of Ghana’s former President and wife of the legendary Hiplife originator Reggie Rockstone.
