Former President Jerry John Rawlings, says people should not be concerned about his new look because he is going to keep it as long as COVID-19 continues to be around.
John Rawlings had a surprise and new look when he showed up at the June 4 celebrations this year with an all-white hair and moustache and beard that was well-grown.
The founder of the NDC looked exactly as the Nigerian playwright Wole Soyinka and many have been wondering why this new hair and look by the 73-year-old statesman.
In an interview with Asaase FM, an Accra-based radio station, JJ Rawlings, as he is affectionately called, said, jokingly, his hair is going to be used to brush away the pandemic.
“Ladies and gentlemen…“for those of you who are wondering about this Moses brush, if you want, call it Moses broom. Since the president [Akufo-Addo] has decided, he will use his shaven head to get rid of Covid-19, I will use [my] Moses’ brush [hair] to get rid of it and when it happens, then I think we can go back to our normal look.”
“I wanted to provide evidence that I was also hibernating and I have decided until it goes, this hair won’t go.
“As soon as it goes, yes,” he added.
