She said her mother before her death told her Rawlings was her father.
“My mother said Rawlings had to go to school and that if his family knew that he had impregnated her, he wouldn’t have had the opportunity to further his education so she kept it as a secret. They were childhood lovers and because of the love my mother had for him, she also didn’t mention him and got him to go to school,”.
She, however, said her efforts to reconcile with her siblings for the past 20 years have proven futile.
