The loss of ex-President Jerry John Rawlings has come as a shock to Ghanaians and the African community as another prominent figure passed on.
Some African leaders and influential people have expressed their sympathies after news of his death broke.
The likes of Goodluck Jonathan, Muhammadu Buhari and Ghana’s current President Nana Akuffo Addo among others have expressed their condolences to the deceased family and to the citizens of Ghana for the loss of the ex-President.
