Mr. Rawlings said, he regretted not telling her in the face about her deeds when the latter knelt before him and begged for forgiveness on behalf of the NDC for its ‘sins’ during the 39th anniversary of the June 4 Uprising.

“Maybe sometimes I say the inappropriate things, I should have said it there and then [that she’s a crook]”, Mr. Rawlings lamented in a video which has since gone viral on social media.

But speaking on Okay FM Monday, Anita De Sosoo said, her sufferings at the hands of the NDC’s founder were as a result of her bad relationship with his wife.

According to Anita, her crime was that she refused to accept a bribe Nana Konadu offered her to dump the late Professor Evans Atta Mills during the NDC’s 2011 presidential primary.

I am telling Nana Konadu that is it because of her bribe that I refused to take, that is why she is angry at me? I will refer her to the book of Judges Chapter 14 and 15 going, Madam De Sosoo said.

Earlier, her (Anita De Sosoo) son, Franklin Dorledzi who was not happy with the attack on his mother slammed Mr Rawlings asking him to tell Ghanaians how his wife acquired some state properties including the Nsawam Cannery during his regime.
