“Say no to tribal politics”

Aspirant Kpehe Cautions Bongese

By: Joseph Titus Yekeryan

Senatorial aspirant Johnny Kpehe has cautioned leaders and residents of the county against divisive and tribal politics.

Kpehe said tribal politics undermine democracy and further place the country in the state of instability.

He said if Bong County and Liberia should continue to enjoy its existing peace, there should be no room for tribalism in the country’s growing democracy.

“The constitution is very clear about who to contest. The criteria are set for those contesting for the Representative, Senatorial and Presidential positions. So, I want to caution you all to look up to what the constitution says rather than listening to people who want to divide you for little or nothing” Kpehe adds.

His statement comes amid reports that he comes from Lofa and is not a member of the Kpelleh tribe but wants to contest in Bong County.

He reminded Bong County citizens about the Rwanda genocide, the culmination of decades of division and incitement of hatred towards the Tutsi by extremists in the country’s leadership.

According to the UN, about nearly one million ethnic Tutsi and Moderate Hutu were killed in the 100 days of Rwanda’s most notorious modern genocides.

The Bong County Senatorial Aspirant said he does not see tribalism as a factor for development; maintaining that patriotism is the way forward to a nation’s growth and development.

According to Kpehe, the massage of divisive and tribal politics has the propensity to undermine the fragile peace of the County.

He added that aspirants vying for elected positions at the district and county levels should present a platform that will have positive impacts on the lives of the suffering masses instead of hit massages that will tear apart the county’s sustainable peace.

He also spoke on Sunday, in Gbarnga following an endorsement from the “Lorma Community” to contest for the Senate seat in Bong County. Johnny at the same time presented two thousand United States Dollars as an initial contribution to the construction of a Modern Town Hall for the Community.
