By Lewis S Teh

Following the death of one of its youthful partisans in the United States, the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) has announced four days of national mourning to be observed by all partisans across the country.

 “The CDC, through its National Youth League, is saddened to hear of the passing of one of its member comrades  Wen Sailey, and therefore declared four days national mourning”, the party declares here.

Deputy Secretary General for administration Hassan Newland, in a news conference Wednesday, January 26, 2022, described the fallen colleague as an ardent devotionist of the CDC’s doctrine, and an embodiment of the Youth League with a struggle credential of commitment, party discipline, and fearlessness. 

He says the Youth League sees his death as a heartbreaking moment for not just the party, but millions of young revolutionaries and militants; most especially standing and never relenting cadres who saw him as a role model.

“You might be dead today but your commitment to ensuring that the ideologies of the mighty CDC be projected will forever be remembered. Indeed, death has not won and death will never win.”

At the same time, the Youth League promises to stand with the deceased’s widow Mrs. Caroline Sailey, as she mourns the death of her husband, saying “we are with you as you go through these

difficult moments and will continue to be a family as always.”

Meanwhile, the League calls on all party militants to observe the irreparable loss by placing BLACK CLOTHS at their various homes, offices, and cars as they observe the period of mourning.

 The Execute Mansion in Monrovia quotes President George Manneh Weah as conveying sympathy to the bereaved family, the CDC, and those impacted by the passing of Sailey.
