Controversial Montserrado County District #10 Rep. Yekeh Kolubah has vowed to join the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) if opposition candidates Ms. Telia Urey and Mr. Darius Dillon do not win the upcoming Montserrado representative and senatorial by-elections.
Mr. Kolubah has been a ruthless critic of President George Manneh Weah and the CDC regime, but his latest utterance could shock many especially days after his wife and children were denied travel by immigration authorities at the airport over concerns of not having exit clearance to carry the kids.
Rep. Kolubah told reporters Tuesday, 16 July at the Capitol that if supporters of the four collaborating parties don’t support the two candidates during the elections, he will join the ruling CDC.
His argument is that if the CDC wins the pending elections, it would suggest that Liberians are happy about the state of affairs of the country, and therefore he will officially join the CDC.
The District #10 lawmaker indicates that his stance against ills in the country is not a personal fight, but a fight for the ordinary people who can barely afford daily meal.
Rep. Kolubah points out that if the fight to pressure the CDC government will be successful, there is a need for all, irrespective of political affiliation, to support the fight.
“As I speak to you, for the past few months we have not received salary, and if the Liberian people vote for the CDC candidates, it means all is alright in the country,” Mr. Kolubah says.
“It means people are happy about the way the country is going under this CDC-led government,” he concludes.By Bridgett Milton –Edited by Winston W. Parley
