Clergyman damns Rep. Yekeh Kolubah

Monrovia, Liberia, June 5, 2024 – Controversial Montserrado County Electoral District #10 Representative Yekeh Kolubah has come under criticism for announcing plans to protest against the Boakai administration.

Upon his return to the country over the weekend, Representative Kolubah held a press conference and officially announced a plan to stage a protest against him to call President Boakai’s attention to lies, deceit, corruption, violations of the law, and bad governance.

However, in response to a statement issued by the District#10 lawmaker, Rev. Philip S. Blamo and CEO of the Citizens Action Committee (CAC) condemned the planned protest, terming it as baseless and detrimental to Liberia’s progress. 

He stressed the importance of leaders prioritizing the welfare of the people over personal ambitions.

“The Liberian people are weary of politicians shifting loyalties for their selfish ambitions,” Rev. Blamo remarked, and added, “We cannot persist in a cycle of political immaturity, where leaders put personal interests above national security and development.”

Rev. Blamo noted that the people of Liberia are exhausted by politicians who constantly shift loyalties for their own selfish ambitions rather than prioritizing the country’s well-being.

“We cannot continue in a cycle without visionary leaders, where personal interests precede national security, health, and other developmental initiatives,” Rev. Blamo emphasized.

Though the District#10 lawmaker is back in the country, all of his family members reside in America, and he has been noted for making statements that tend to disturb the peace and democracy of Liberia. 

However, Rev. Blamo noted that yesterday, it was the same movement to remove former President George Weah, and today, it’s the same people and the same movement to remove President Boakai, noting that this demonstrates political immaturity and undermines pure democracy, which dictates the removal of presidents through the ballot box.

He urged Liberians to focus on unity through developmental initiatives rather than getting on the street to demonstrate and cause more hardships in the country. Editing by Jonathan Browne
