Opposition Liberty Party (LP) Political Leader Senator Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence says the government cannot be pushing for reconciliation when members of the Legislature are violating the constitution of the country.
Appearing on a local radio Tuesday, 11 December in Monrovia, the Grand Bassa Senator indicated that government lacks the political will to reconcile Liberia.She says the impeachment proceeding against Associate Justice Kabineh M. Ja’neh is unconstitutional.
Meanwhile, Senator Karnga-Lawrence has spoken of a lawsuit issued against her by Monrovia City Mayor, Jefferson Koijee.The LP Political Leader says a writ was taken to the Legislature, but the court sheriff was told that the instrument could not be served on grounds that she was in session.
She is being sued by the City Mayor following her utterances against situations that erupted in Montserrado County District #13 when Mr. Koijee and some ruling party Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) supporters were accused of inflicting wounds against opponents in election violence in November.
Meanwhile, Senator Karnga – Lawrence says the fight against corruption must start from the top, noting that people who come to public service must be vetted on their track records, including their achievements at their former places of work.
She recommends that officials of government who have started buying expensive properties be audited and strong actions taken.According to her, such action would sent a strong signal to the rest of the world that the people here are ready for business.
