It appears that Grand Gedeh County Lawmaker Morias Waylee would begin his 2017 Legislative campaign with first trying to clear himself of a rape allegation that is attracting more interest by the day. Over the weekend, the Independent National Human Rights Commission called for an investigation into allegation that the lawmaker had allegedly raped and impregnanted a 13 year-old girl in his district in Grand Gedeh.
Well on Monday May 29, the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection (MGCSP) announced that it had initiated contact with the Grand Gedeh County Lawmaker on the alleged raping of a 13-year old girl.
The approach to meet Representative Waylee is part of ongoing efforts intended to solicit facts surrounding the widespread and alleged rape saga involving the lawmaker and an unidentified 13-year old girl.
The Ministry finds it worrisome that people who have hinted and possible lead on the locality of the 13-year old victim, including the Front page africa Newspaper, have also failed to provide clear description of the victim’s location.
At the same time, the Ministry is appealing to the family of the alleged victim, especially the mother and father, to come forward and provide the appropriate location of their child so as to assist the ministry in its ongoing investigation.
Moreover, the Ministry is calling on the general public to also assist in providing pieces information on the where-about of the alleged victim.Meanwhile, the Ministry of Gender, Children And Social Protection (MGCSP) says it will in no way compromise and be selective in tackling the issue of rape and other forms of violence against women and girls. “No one is above the law and also everyone is innocent except proven guilty”, the ministry release concludes.
