-Findley files for divorce
Liberia’s immediate past Foreign Minister and defeated senatorial candidate Gbehzohngar Milton Findley is seeking divorce of his wife Kaddieyatu Darrah Findley, according to a document from the Civil Law Court in Monrovia.
The document titled “Action of Divorce for Incompatibility of Temper,” has necessitated a writ of summons against Mrs. Findley, with specific instruction for her appearance before the court to answer to the complaint filed against her.
The court has mandated that upon Madam Findley’s failure to appear, it will enter judgment by default against her. Additionally the court has ordered Mrs. Findley to file her response or answer in the office of the judge on or before 23 January.
Mr. Findley who contested and lost the just – ended 2020 senatorial election in Grand Bassa County is said to have been in a prolonged strained relationship with his wife Kaddieyatu.
The Liberian politician who held the post of Senate President Pro – Tempore during former President Ellen Johnson – Sirleaf’s administration, left the then ruling Unity Party to form new political alliances with the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) in 2017 nearing the presidential election.
A day after President George Manneh Weah took the oath office, Findley was appointed Liberia’s Foreign Minister and the Liberian Senate on 26 January 2018 confirmed the nomination, making him the Dean of the Cabinet in President Weah’s administration.
But Mr. Findley resigned the top job as Liberia’s chief diplomat in July last year to run for a Senate Senate in Grand Bassa County, though he lost the race. He previously represented the same county in the Senate during the rule of Mrs. Sirleaf. By Winston W. Parley
