‘Daddy’ kept over 20 wild dogs at his Ridge Residence alone – Hannah Bissiw speaks on Rawlings’ service

Dr. Hanna Louisa Bissiw has revealed that the late former President Jerry John Rawlings had over 20 wild dogs at his Ridge Residence alone.

The Cuba-trained Veterinary Surgeon revealed on Face to Face Africa on Citi TV monitored by that she was charged with the responsibility of taking care of the animals.

“As their daughter and a veterinary surgeon there was no one in a better position to take care of your parents pets. They had 20 or probably a little more at Ridge”, she revealed.

According to the National Women’s Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), the former military ruler loved pets which informed his decision to keep such large numbers.

“You know, daddy loved pets and mummy also does. Usually, when the dog gave birth and he gives you a dog, don’t think he would just close his eye, he will follow up to see if you are treating the animal well. It was not like they were buying them but they were reproducing”, she revealed.

She revealed that she was in charge of the over 20 dogs except the medication that was bought.

“Mine was to ensure that they had their vaccinations”, she revealed.

On claims she was fired because the dogs started dying under her care, she apportioned the blame on one Dr. Tetteh at 37 insisting the animals were hale and hearty under her stewardship.

It was an open secret that Jerry John Rawlings loved pets especially dogs taking into account happenings in 2013 where one Mr Kwesi Banahene, had been accused of murdering a dog owned by former President.
