The Movement for Economic Empowerment or MOVEE – a newly established political party of former Executive Governor of the Central Bank of Liberia has indicted President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for alleged involvement in ritualistic activities in the country, a grave claim by an opposition party.
The party made the allegation through its Margibi County Chairman on August 20, during the hoisting of MOVEE flag for the first time and officially opened the county chapter for political activities.
Mr. James Tarnue, in the presence of MOVEE political leader Dr. J. Mills Jones and other executives of the party, including hundreds of Liberians stated: “….should I tell you about the wickedness in them? You heard about the Queen Sheba in the Oldlady’s yard? The devil don’t give for nothing, the devil exchanges blood for power this is why your friends, your mothers, they are laying down to Todee Junction, they are laying down all over in this place with parts extracted. We shouldn’t allow this government in power for this wickedness”.
Mr. Tarnue, who is also the former Margibi Chairman of the opposition Congress for Democratic Change or CDC, said MOVEE will not allow this current leadership to remain in power, vowing to tear it down.
President Sirleaf is stepping down next year, having served two terms, and constitutionally unfit to go for a their term. However, her Vice President Joseph Boikai has by elected by the governing Unity Party to vie for the presidency in 2017.
The MOVEE Margibi chair noted that if Liberians had never fought before, they will fight this time to ensure that the current leadership of the country is politically eliminated. Also speaking, political leader Dr. Jones emphasized the need for change, implying that Liberians have encountered underdevelopment and poverty for too long. According to him, the only way to bring about change is to go to the ballot box next year and make a decision that will see a different leadership.
He added that change is not easy. Change, according to him, means sometimes you have to be in the sun or the rain, further calling on the people of Margibi to work with the party leadership to bring about the change they want to see.
