There is no difference between the late President Mills and current President John Mahama in terms of how they run Ghana. This is according to NDC founder and former President Jerry John Rawlings. The former President made this statement in an interview with Nana Aba Anamoah of GHONE TV’s ‘state of affairs’ on Friday March 18 2016.

‘‘ When I look at him and look at this John Mahama, they have too many commonalities except that this John has not lined up people on the promise of a job to insult and fabricate things against me and my wife and family as Mills did. This John has not done that but that is not to say that John Mahama is not also going astray’, he stated.
According to the former President Rawlings, corruption under John Mahama is as serious as what prevailed under President Mills. ‘This President claims he is fighting corruption but I can’t really see that’, he stated.

The former President cited Alfred Woyome, a known NDC business man who was recently acquitted and discharged of criminal charges for a judgement debt corruption scandal by the court, for his position against the John Mahama administration.

‘I am glad the NPP was able to respond to that character called Alfred Woyome who was cleared of his criminal tendencies. I read somewhere that he said, I am aware of the millions of dollars that he has spent on the NDC party. Iam not aware of that, but I am aware of the half a million euros that he has taken fraudulently from foreign groups by using my name.’

In an answer to a question of his personal knowledge of Woyome, Former President Rawlings admitted that he knew Mr. Woyome personally in the past when he didn’t know about his criminal tendencies. ‘I knew him in the old days when he used to come around and talk talk talk when I didn’t know about his dubious character’.

He called on Ghanaians to be wise and examine situations and the personalities before voting in the December elections. ‘Ghanaians must be very vigilant so that neither NDC nor NPP can misbehave during the December polls. President Rawlings Rawlings wished all the candidates in the November polls well and particularly praised the NPP’s Nana Akufo Addo for being a ‘bold charactnnone”

Nayele Ametefe jailed 8 years

Drug Queen Nayele Ametefe has been released from jail having served only three years out of her 8 and a half years sentence for narcotics peddling and trafficking.

We learnt she was released days ago on parole for showing extraordinarily good behaviour throughout her 3 years in prison, even though she has 5 and a half years to go.

Parole is a temporary release of a prisoner who agrees to certain conditions before the completion of the maximum sentence period, originating from the French ‘parole’.

The Ghanaian who also hold an Austrian passport pleaded guilty to carrying 12 kilos of cocaine to the United Kingdom was been sentenced to eight years, eight months’ imprisonment.

Nayele Ametefe was sentenced on her own plea by the Isleworth Crown Court in London. The sentence was discounted because of her early guilty plea. Nayele appeared in court well dressed and looked indifferent when the sentence was handed down on her head.

The prosecutors told the court Nayele had $23,000 and an additional 6,000 Pounds in her handbag when she was arrested. The money was payment for her courier services.

According to the prosecutors, Nayele Ametefe was carting the cocaine to South America. Her travel itinerary, the court was told indicated that she was leaving the United Kingdom two days after her arrival, for the Dominican Republic.

The 12 kilograms of cocaine was, therefore, not meant to be consumed in the UK.

In his submission for mitigation, lawyer for Nayele told the court she came from an underprivileged home and married a spare parts dealer at Ghana’s famous spare-parts market, Abossey Okai.

She has three children, the first being 16 years old. Her marriage broke down and she has been a single mother.

According to the lawyer, Nayele came into contact with powerful people in 2004 and her life changed dramatically. She travelled extensively with influential people as their companion.

The lawyer said Nayele has remained connected to powerful people in authority who are currently in power in Ghana.

She was forced by circumstances to engage in transporting drugs to support her newly attained high-class lifestyle and to take care of her three children, the lawyer said.
