Former Miss Liberia to enter politics

By Emmanuel wise Jipoh 

The former Miss Liberia 2017, Wokie Kou Dolo, has declared her intention to contest as an Independent Candidate in Montserrado county electoral district#6 against incumbent Representative, Rev. Samuel Enders come 2023.

“I have resolved to contest, and I am sure to get the ticket and become the candidate to represent the People of District #6 Montserrado County come 2023.”

Miss. Dolo made the declaration to The NewDawn via Messenger, revealing “I am trying to get into politics. However, I wanted to share my journey into politics with you. I have decided to participate in the upcoming elections specifically for District 6 Representative seat.” 

“I am ready! We’re ready! I’ve decided to get in the race to help my people, not for any other gains, but for my people’s interest, and I will announce the declaration of my intention to serve as the next Representative of District #6 upon my return from South Africa”, she disclosed.

 She was Miss Liberia for five years after winning the prestigious crown on 30 December 2016, becoming the longest serving queen in the country due to delay by the government to organize another competition.

Not until early this year when XL-Entertainment, headed by entrepreneur Zubin Cooper, took up the responsibility to partner with the Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism (MICAT) and organized Miss Liberia 2022 which was won by 21-year-old Miss Verolyn Veseh Vonleh of Rivercess county, who now carries the beauty face of Liberia.
