Former President Jerry John Rawlings has died aged 73.

Rawlings died Thursday at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital after he was rushed to the health facility last week.

Rawlings, who seized power twice via military coups, was admitted to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Ghana's capital, Accra, last week after suffering from a brief illness.

A family spokesperson revealed that the late former President Jerry John Rawlings felt severely ill and was hospitalised just a few days after burying his mother on Saturday, October 24, 2020.

Rawlings was born in 1947 to a Scottish father and a Ghanaian mother who died in September at the age of 101.

Rawlings, who trained as an air force officer, came to power in 1979 after leading his first coup, and then transferring power to civilian rule soon after.

In December 1981, he staged a second coup and was Ghana’s military leader until he introduced multiparty elections in 1992 that returned the country to democracy.

He won the elections and was sworn in as president in 1993 and served two elected four-year terms, leaving office in 2001.

Rawlings handed over power to John Kufour of the opposition party who had defeated Rawlings’ vice president in the previous year’s election.

After stepping down, Rawlings remained a power broker in Ghanaian politics while serving in various international diplomatic posts, including as the African Union’s representative in Somalia.
