What is the June 4th revolution
The Supreme Military Council II (SMC II) leadership’s detention and subsequent trial of Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings and other junior military officers, who were accused of mutinying after a botched coup attempt on May 15, 1979, served as the catalyst for the June 4 Revolution, also known as the June 4th Uprising.
Several factors contributed to the unsuccessful coup attempt on May 15, 1979, according to Jerry John Rawlings.
First off, Jerry John Rawlings and other junior military officers frequently received salary denials. On a larger scale, the issues of pervasive corruption among SMC officials, bad governance, economic hardship and general civilian resentment, as well as significant levels of indiscipline within the Ghana Army, were also brought up.
