A report reaching the New Dawn speaks of the Bong County Superintendent Selena P. Mappy dumping the Unity Party or UP, as she is said to be campaigning massively for the Coalition for Democratic Change.
Mrs. Mappy has denied the report as she claims to be a faithful and committed partisan of the UP. Superintended Mappy contested the Representative seat in electoral District 6, but poorly performed. Prior to the conduct of the October 10th elections, Superintended Mappy was seen in every corner vigorously campaigning for Vice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai especially in electoral district 6, but her campaign was fruitless evidenced by the poor performance of the Boakai Nuquay ticket in her district.
This was after she resigned her post to follow her failed legislative bid barley twenty two days before the conduct of the October 10th elections. But sources say following her defeat, Superintended Mappy allegedly lobbied with Senator Jewel Howard Taylor, the CDC Vice running mate to appeal on her behalf to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for her reinstatement as Superintendent.
Our sources Mrs. Taylor allegedly agreed to appeal on her behalf but with the condition that she did in return campaign for the CDC. Our reporter said since her reinstatement, Superintendent Mappy has allegedly been pretending to be supporting Vice President Boakai in the expected runoff election but was recently seen mobilizing chiefs for the CDC.
The Superintendent is said to be using former County Inspector William Kollie who was dismissed from his post for allegedly beating and insulting chiefs in the county as her foot soldier.
Our reporter in the county say the Bong County Superintended is being financed by the CDC to mobilize traditional people in pushing the CDC agenda forward.
When quizzed about the allegation of her support to the CDC in the expected runoff elections, Superintendent Mappy declined to comment on the issue for now.
For his part, former County Inspector William Kollie said it is his right to support any political party of his choice, likewise Mrs. Mappy.
Former Inspector Kollie has since pledged his support to the CDC after the announcement of the postponed November 7 runoff elections.
