Former President Jerry John Rawlings appeared in public on Thursday to address a virtual celebration of the 41st anniversary of the June 4 uprising spotting a new hairstyle.
Spotting a bushy hair with bushy beard, he attempted to explain his new look and sarcastically compared it to that of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s clean shaven head.
“Ladies and gentlemen…since the president [Akufo-Addo] has decided to use his shaven hair to get rid of convo-19, what is called…, I [have decided i] will use [my hair] Moses’ brush to get rid of it and when it happens, then I think we can go back to our” normal lives, the former President said amidst laughter and pointed to his bushy hair and beard.
The coronavirus pandemic in Ghana since March 12 has made many to stay away from barbering saloons in line with social distancing protocols.
