Actor and comedian, Clement Ashitey, better known as Clemento Suarez, has disclosed the family of late ex-President Jerry Rawlings has asked him to stop mimicking him for now.

After the visit, he had on several interviews replayed scenes from his visit.
He made the disclosure on Accra-based UTV when he was offered another opportunity to relive the moment and imitate Mr Rawlings.
“I was called by ex-president Rawlings’ family to stop imitating him from now until he is buried. I was told to respect the dead and more so his personality as a former president,” he revealed.
Clemento Suarez says he has decided to abide by the family’s wishes and desist from mimicking him in the mean time.
Flt Lt Rawlings passed away on the 12th of November,2020 after suffering a short illness.
