Abigail Mawutor Rawlings, a 52-year-old woman who claims to be the first child of the late former President Rawlings has been prevented from viewing his mortal remains.
She was prevented by personnel of the Ghana Police Service and the Military from gaining access to the foyer where the mortal remains of the former President have been laid in state for public viewing.
With so much agitation, Abigail Mawutor Rawlings resisted the attempts to restrict from viewing the body of the man he claims to be his father.
She shouted on top of her voice and created a dramatic scene. Her persistence and incessant demand to go view the body fell on the deaf ears of the security personnel at post who did not allow her entry.
Abigail Mawutor Rawlings after the death of former President Rawlings has claimed to be his first child who has been kept under the radar. She said she has always tried to meet her father but to no avail.
According to her, in 2003, she made her identity known to Ghanaian actress Grace Omaboe aka Maame Dokono but was told to go back to Togo if she indeed wanted her peace.
Former President Rawlings will be laid to rest at the Military cemetery tomorrow Wednesday, January 27, 2021, following her sudden demise at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital after a short illness on Thursday, November 12, 2020.
