CDC urges Senate to reject Nyumalin & Freeman

-due to their alleged troubling human rights records

Monrovia, Liberia – February 16, 2024: The Congress for Democratic Change expresses profound dismay at President Joseph Boakai’s nomination of Mr. Francis S. Nyumalin as Minister of Internal Affairs and Mr. J. Nelson Freeman as Deputy Inspector General for Operations of the Liberia National Police.

The appointment of these individuals, who have a reprehensible history of violence, death, and destruction perpetrated against innocent citizens, severely impedes the progress of the widely promoted ‘Rescue Train,’ which now appears completely derailed.

In urging President Boakai to remove the two instigators of violence and any others involved in harming innocent citizens, the Congress for Democratic Change also appeals to the esteemed Liberian Senate to reject these nominees if the President remains steadfast in his decision.

Given the overwhelming evidence implicating these two suspects in the deaths, violence, and lawlessness against innocent citizens, it would be prudent for President Boakai or the Senate to take decisive action. This could help mitigate the impact of partisan biases that currently hinder patriotic thinking.

Driven by an excessive zeal to further political agendas, Mr. J. Nelson Freeman, on separate occasions, notably on November 7th, 2011, led a brutal special unit of the Liberia National Police. This unit trespassed onto the premises of the Congress for Democratic Change in Congo Town, where they subjected unarmed civilians to brutalization and point-blank shootings, resulting in fatalities. Despite these egregious human rights violations, Mr. Freeman evaded accountability, being absolved of wrongdoing by a partisan committee convened to ensure his innocence, while his victims continue to seek justice to this day.

Similarly, Mr. Francis S. Nyumalin, a former legislator, rose to infamy during recent elections in Foya, Lofa County for masterminding a systematic campaign of death, violence, and bloodshed against perceived political opponents. He openly proclaimed himself an ‘Old rebel,’ publicly expressing his intention to ‘Mob’ and eliminate a security personnel who had fled from his threats. Throughout the campaign, Nyumalin was armed with a single-barrel gun, assuming the role of an ‘Old rebel’ commander, and rallying numerous underprivileged youths to his cause, exploiting their fervent loyalty as ruthless instruments of death, violence, and disorder.

These incidents exemplify the documented barbarism inflicted upon innocent citizens by the nominees, casting a shadow of moral failure upon the Honorable Senate should they receive confirmation.

As a party unwavering in its commitment to upholding the rule of law, the CDC calls for swift and decisive measures against the growing culture of impunity in Liberia, irrespective of the perpetrator’s political affiliation, ethnicity, gender, or religion. Without a shared commitment to the rule of law, Liberia risks descending into the abyss of institutionalized violence, decay, and ruin.

Therefore, while continuing to be Liberia’s foremost proponent of the rule of law, steadfast in offering constructive criticism and support for the collective welfare, the CDC reserves the right, as a last resort to safeguard the sanctity of institutional governance, to contemplate unspecified political actions within the bounds of legality.

You have outlived your usefulness and should not be melting in the presendents appointments. you are not worth to morals to determine who the presidents appoints in his government. You sat here and watched the killings of our young auditors, professionals amongst other innocent loves taken away, you got the guts to come on national wires to say BS.

    I dare you talk shit next time on who the presedents appoints to positions of his choice. You are mad and should land in one Rehabilitation center for treatment. You are on the wrong side and should hold your peace and keep your mouth shut forever..Idiot!

  2. THese clowns are so funny to the point they have found themselves new jobs to keep them busy. How come you did not raised issues when you had the full authority to conduct investigations of your allegations, ok, today, you have become jobless and with no proffession, you have chosen to take over the national airwave to make your self relevance. Idiots! Mulbah, your attention should be based on how you build up your fertility as a grown man to have continuity of your name after you have gone from the surface of the earth.

    Your wuest to dictate to the President to appoint your choice or likings is belated and zero decision on your part. You are very foolish in your thinking and hope you find something else to do to keep you fit in your retirement. No amount of fear tactics will derail our peace .
