Saytumah Seeks Refuge At CDC?
Reports available to this paper indicates that sacked Minister of State for Economic Affairs Morris Saytumah is on his way to becoming a card bearing member of the Congress of Democratic Change or CDC of football star turned politician George Weah.
Until his dismissal, Saytumah was one of the most powerful ministers in the Unity Party led government. He was said to have played a major role in the dismissals and appointments of several officials, because he had the ears of the president.
Sources say his move to the CDC, which is currently engulfed in internal bickering, is being wheeled by his ex-brother in law, CDC Secretary General Eugene Nagbe. Saytumah is said to have his only daughter who is now in her early 20(s) by Eugene’s sister.
Saytumah was among President Sirleaf entire cabinet that were sent on compulsory administrative leave some three weeks ago. He is also among four officials who will not be returning.
The rest are Foreign Minister Olubanke King Akerele, Lands, Mines and Energy Minister Eugene Shannon and Dr. Richard Tolbert of the National Investment Commission or NIC.
