Rawlings Reconciles with Accra Mayor after public snub

The former President of Ghana, Jerry John Rawlins on Thursday 5th January. 2017 made the news when he rebuffed the outgoing Accra Mayor at the forecourt of Parliament.

Mr Vanderpuije attempted to hold a conversation with Mr Rawlings when he was making his way into the Chamber but things did not pan out as expected.
Mr Rawlings gestured in a manner that showed he was not in the mood to entertain the Accra Mayor.

Video of the incident went viral on social media triggering mixed reactions from Ghanaians. While sections of Ghanaians lauded the former Ghanaian for his actions, others said he could have done better.

But in a surprising development, Mr Rawlings approached Mr Vanderpuije to interact with him resulting in a reconciliation. Former President Jerry John Rawlings has extended an olive branch to the Accra Mayor, after he humiliated him in public.

Observing the dissolution of Ghana’s sixth Parliament on January 6 midnight, the former leader walked to Alfred Oko Vanderpuiye to reconcile with him.

The Accra Mayor told media minutes after the “patch up” that the former Ghanaian leader told him to ignore what he did to him on Thursday. He, however, did not disclose the rest of the conversation.
