“Gov’t can’t silent us”
The Chairman of the former governing United Party warns here that if government arrested Montserrado County District#10 Representative YekehKolubah, the rest of the opposition community would not keep quiet.
Chairman J. Wilmot Paye says there is no way the government can silent the opposition bloc or any other person, who speaks against the Weah administration
Speaking Wednesday, 17 April at the residence of Representative Kolubah in Old Road community, Monrovia Chairman Paye goes on that if government likes, it should arrest talk show Henry Costa, Mo Ali, and the rest of the people who are in the opposition community, but they will still not keep quiet from speaking about ills in the society.
Fully attired in khaki uniform, with Unity Party jacket and cap, the UP chairman notes that Represent Kolubah is being prosecuted because he has joined the opposition, adding, they want to arrest him because he sees wrongs and talks about [them.]
According to him, when Kolubah joined the four collaborating opposition parties, the Minister of State Nathaniel McGill accused them of plotting to overthrow the government, and he was never rebuked by the authority.
“We are standing with Yekeh, and there is nothing this government can do to us to keep us silent; I hope the Liberia National Police have enough rooms for us in their prisons because we are standing with the District #10 lawmaker to the end”, Paye vows.
He wants the international community to take note of unfolding development in the country, stressing the need for government tolerate free speech because every Liberian has right to talk if something was not going right.
“George Weah must understand that he didn’t win legitimately; it was December 28, 2017, when the former Vice President Joseph Boakai, supported by the other opposition leaders decided to let go for the sake of peace”, he claims.
He alleges that the government is doing all these things to stop the planned June 7 peaceful protest, but notes, as citizens it is their constitutional right to carry on peaceful protest, which should not be denied.
He said that the International community is tired of reporting from Liberia because every day there is a misuse of power and other unconstitutional things going on in the country.By Ethel A. Tweh
