Former President Jerry Rawlings has taken a swipe at three of his successors for pretentious efforts to honour Ghana's founder Kwame Nkrumah.

"Mills, Mahama you all say you are Nkrumahists. You have chopped into the man's name" Rawlings gave free reins to his emotions in his characteristic boom speeches.

But he gave special mention and attention to his immediate successor, former President John Kufuor whom he said demeaned the legacy of Ghana’s first Prime Minister by desecrating his grave.

He said Kufour did this when he buried Kwame Nkrumah' wife, Fathia Nkrumah, at the Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum in Accra, the same place her husband was buried.
