Former president Jerry John Rawlings has denied issuing a statement on the Airbus bribery scandal.
A statement from the office of Mr Rawlings said “certain unscrupulous persons have been putting out statements locally and internationally purportedly authored by him or issued by his office.”
The statement further noted that Mr Rawlings has also not commented on the recent distribution of ambulances to constituencies neither has he issued a statement on the Malawian election dispute ruling.
It warned perpetrators of these falsehoods to desist from such acts.
Members of the public who are unsure of any statement purported to emanate from the former President’s office have been advised to verify such publications on his official Facebook page – https://web.facebook.com/President.J.J.Rawlings – as all official statements are posted there.
