On October 2, 2018, Multimedia Group Limited (MGL) aired a full documentary dubbed “Who Killed the Judges” in an attempt to unravel circumstances surrounding the killings of some three judges of the superior court in Ghana.
After the documentary was aired, it has regenerated a discussion on the matter after so many years.
Former president Jerry John Rawlings at the United Nations Youth summit held in Accra had sent a warning for Multimedia, sponsors and producers of the documentary piece.
When asked as to what he makes of the documentary, the statesman simply answered: “I will respond to the multimedia documentary in Kumasi”.
“I will boom on that platform to lay some facts bare” he added.
Having some quality time with students and youth from diverse background and some countries (Nigeria, Sudan South Africa) at the Accra Digital Centre, the former president charged the youth to make use of the energy they have now and “think outside the box”.
He touched on the fact that his health is currently challenged due to his old age but that doesn’t quench the youthful zeal he has in him.
Using a number of young ladies doing exploits as a yardstick, the former president charged young women most especially to never give up on political ambitions despite the hurdles.
Three judges of the Supreme Court of Ghana –Justices Poku Sarkodie, Mrs Cecelia Koranteng-Addow and Kwadwo Adjei Agyepong were abducted from their homes at Ridge in Accra and killed on June 30, 1982.
The circumstances surrounding their murder has been shrouded in secrecy.
Names such as Mr Rawlings and Kojo Tsikata’s have been mentioned in the saga.
