A 52-year old woman, Abigail Rawlings Mawutor has emerged from Togo claiming to be the first daughter of the late former President Jerry John Rawlings.
Abigail who shares some striking resemblance with the former President disclosed in an exclusive interview with SVTV Africa that she has to hide her identity due to the fear of elimination, as advised by former TV host and actress Grace Omaboe aka Maame Dokono.
According to her, after revealing who she was to Maame Donoko, the latter gave her money to leave the country in 2003 for fear of being assassinated.
“Maame Dokono knows about this. In 2003, I paid her a visit and told her about my story, but she told me if I don’t keep quiet about it I may die. So she gave me money and I left the country,” Abigail told host, Ayisha.
Speaking on how her mom met the late former President, she indicated that they met during his military training days. Madam Abigail further said when her mother confronted Rawlings of her pregnancy, he [Rawlings] asked her mother to keep it to herself for fear of being dropped out of school by his guardians.
“Most of the external family in the village know me. When my mom told me about my father, I went to the family house,” she said.
