Mother of former President Jerry John Rawlings has marked her 101 birthday.

Madam Victoria Agbotui turned 101 Wednesday and celebrated the day in the company of Mr Rawlings and his wife.

She has been firmly behind her son in all aspects of his life [including his political career], however, she first appeared in the political scene when her son staged a coup in 1979.

She was also the head of the catering department at the presidency during her son’s reign.
