Montserrado County District #10 Representative Yekeh Kolubah is calling for an audit of the 52nd and 53rd Legislature and its members, as part of efforts to dig deep into claims of corruption and the alleged missing $16 billion Liberian Dollars here.
“The issue is that the Legislature from 2006 to present need to be audited. I”m not aware of anything, what I’m hearing in the breeze is the reconvening for the impeachment of Associate Justice … Kabineh Ja’neh,” Mr. Kolubah said Thursday, 11 October on a local radio outside Monrovia.
He vows to fight against the impeachment of Justice Ja’neh if it is the reason for lawmakers to boycott recess.He argues that Justice Ja’neh’s case is not more important than the US$25 million that government says it infused into the economy.
He continues that at the early stage of President George Manneh Weah and the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) led – government, the president and his officials are just buying and building houses as if they are about to run away from the country.
Meanwhile opposition Liberty Party (LP) executive Darius Dillon has welcomed the statement of the Government of United States of America that it has reached an agreement with the Government of Liberia to bring an independent investigative team to probe the alleged missing LD$16 billion.
Mr. Dillon continues that the news about missing LD$16 billion is not a good news for the entire country, saying that the missing billion is not only about economic sabotage but can also amount to treason.
