Mary Broh Risks Senate’s Wrath
Monrovia acting Mayor Mary Broh risks the wrath of the Liberian Senate for allegedly assaulting a staff of Senator John Ballout of Maryland County.
Members of the Senate have threatened to declare a vote of no confidence in Madam Broh and to write a formal communication to President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf for her immediate dismissal for what members of the Upper House described as her ‘uncivilized behaviors’ towards Monrovia residents.
Thursday’s decision followed a complaint by Madam Nancy Gaye, Special Assistant in the office Senator Ballout, accusing Madam Broh of publicly assaulting her during a clean up campaign recently.
The Senate has instructed Broh to appear before Plenary next Tuesday alone with the Deputy Police Director for Operations Abraham Kromah. Deputy Director Kromah is said to have allegedly told the victim the police have no power to question Madam Broh’s actions.
This paper gathered that prior to the Senator’s decision, almost every Senator present in session launched a stinging attack on the character of Madam Broh, with Senator John Whitefield describing her as a creature, while Senator Mobutu Nyenpan referred to her as a rebel. The senate has invited Madam Broh to answer series of complaints filed against her alleged constant attacks on innocent citizens.
At the same time, the controversial mayor is said to have taken her accused to court. Court officers are reportedly in search of Madam Nancy Gaye, who was allegedly attacked by Madam Broh to serve her a writ of arrest based on a complaint by the Mayor.
