In Africa no one has a resume as glittering as that of former Ghanaian President Jerry Rawling’s when it comes to orchestrating successful coups. JJ, as he’s called, has two tacked in his bag.
But he’s not the only one with such feats to his name. Take Robert Gabriel Mugabe for example.
He’s Southern Rhodesia’s (Zimbabwe’s) post-independence lightening rod and hero. A bright Catholic boy with a bag of degrees to his chest. He was a constant pain to the Brits in his heydays.
