Listeners of Classic FM , a private radio station at Techiman in the Brong Ahafo region were puzzled on Thursday, May 31, 2012 when Anita de Soso, National Democratic Congress (NDC) National Women's Organizer wept uncontrollably during an interview with the host of the Morning Show, Alhaji Tanko Ayuba.

After initially answering questions on the disunity in the NDC and recent explosive statements of Martin Amidu, the women's organizer got angry when the host asked her whether the NDC National Executive Members had notified the founder of the party, Jerry John Rawlings about the impending 20 th  anniversary of the formation of the party.

Anita said the national executives do not need to notify Rawlings since the former president did not notify them about preparations to celebrate the June 4 th  Anniversary.

According to Anita, even though Mr. Rawlings had not confided in them, the NDC National Executives would be present at the celebration since the NDC was established as a result of two revolutions initiated by Mr. Rawlings.

When she was asked about the consistent criticism of the government by Rawlings, Anita said people had contracted hypertension because of the bad blood which exists between the Rawlingses and President Mills.

She admitted that the NPP leadership had hired buses to transport people to the venue to support Mr. Rawlings to lambast the NDC.

The host drew her attention to the fact that Kofi Adams, the spokesperson for the Rawlingses had stated that Mr. Rawlings expressed sadness when news reached him that the NPP was sponsoring the June 4 th  celebration and that the accusation was baseless.

The mere mention of Kofi Adam irritated Anita, who raised her voice and appealed to supporters of the NDC to be wary of people like Kofi Adams.

She charged the host to tell Kofi Adam to shut up because he was responsible for the current happenings in the party.

Anita alleged that Kofi Adams, who secured several contracts, had  accused the leadership of the NDC of being corrupt.

She wept loudly on air to the surprise of listeners.

The host of the programme ended the programme to console her.
