DPPL Rev. Kaimu: CDC Gov’t complete disappointment to Liberia
By Lewis S Teh
Opposition Democratic People Party of Liberia (DPPL) has lashed out at the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) – led government, branding it as a disappointment to the people of Liberia.
During a press conference over the weekend in Monrovia, DPPL political leader Rev. David Kaimu accused the ruling CDC of allegedly inflicting massive suffering on the Liberian people under President George Manneh Weah, adding that the government is a complete disappointment to Liberians.
“The DPPL is deeply concerned that in five years of President Weah’s government, nothing concrete has been done to address the massive suffering of the people, and to do things that will satisfy the desires of the common people, including citizens who [are] victimized by the civil war,” he alleged.
Rev. Kaimu said individuals who committed economic crimes including those who murdered innocent people are still walking free here.
According to him, the DPPL is calling on President Weah and his government to do what is necessary by setting up the war and economic crimes court in Liberia.
“We in the DPPL lend our fullest support to the United States Congress Resolution 907 which reaffirms commitment to support progress towards transparency, accountability … and other tenets of good governance in Liberia,” said Rev. Kaimu.
He urged President Weah and his CDC – led government to write two separate letters to the United Nations Secretary General and the United States Congress expressing Liberia’s readiness to fully implement recommendations contained in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) report.
Meanwhile, Rev. Kaimu said the DPPL is concerned that some Liberians in the country and the diaspora continue to live on falsehoods about other citizens just to get asylum opportunities in the United States and other countries.
He made specific reference to Mr. Hassan Seku Bility from the Global Justice Research Project, claiming that Bility is in the constant habit of telling falsehoods against some Liberians and using fake witnesses to indict other Liberian citizens.
He also urged the government here to launch an investigation into the group that is led by Mr. Bility and holds it accountable for what it is writing about Liberia and its citizens.
