NDC traitors worse than our 'enemies' – Rawlings

Ex-president Jerry Rawlings is incensed with what he describes as unprecedented monetization of the political space which is being perpetrated by members of his own party in government.
According to him, the monetization has eroded the principle of integrity on which the party has always won its elections.
Speaking at the 30th Anniversary ceremony of the 31st December Women's Movement, the former president minced no words in describing the said government functionaries as traitors who have betrayed the ideals of the National Democratic Congress.
He said the Movement has not only been instrumental in empowering women but has been at the forefront of organising the NDC party.
Mr. Rawlings said instead of the NDC government supporting the Movement to achieve the principles on which it was formed, it is rather sabotaging it even more than what the so-called 'enemies' did between 2000-2008.
He said the government has enviably lost the sense of political morality and has demeaned itself in a 'crass manner.'
The former president said the party is now faced with fighting two enemies - traitors and the perceived enemies.
We cannot fight these two enemies, he pointed out, adding 'one must go.'
