Former President Jerry Rawlings

A statue to keep alive the memory and legacy of late former President Jerry John Rawlings has popped up online.

The statue is nothing short of excellence, as it clearly depicts the late statesman’s Afro hairstyle, sideburns and neat beard.

Though it is not immediately known where the artwork will be mounted, Ghanaians, who have chanced upon the work, cannot keep calm.
