House Speaker Bhofal Chambers risks being complained here before traditional leaders to face inquiry for his failure to attend a Church funeral rites of his fallen kinsman, Montserrado County District #15 Rep. Adolph Lawrence.
The threat to complain Speaker Chambers of Maryland County comes from one of his southeastern kinsmen, River Gee County District #3 Rep. Francis Dopoh who levies a charge against the nation’s third most powerful official of allegedly abusing the moral sanctity of the 54th Legislature.
It is not clear why Speaker Chambers and some lawmakers of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) boycotted the late Lawrence’s Church funeral over the weekend, but a solemn occasion intended to bid the deceased farewell on Capitol Hill was earlier disrupted on Thursday by the CDC and opposition Liberty Party (LP).
Additionally the late Rep. Lawrence prior to his death was among the few critical voices at the House of Representatives that had dissent against the Speaker’s style of handling legislative politics and other issues of national concern.
Rep. Dopoh told reporters in Monrovia Sunday, 28 April that Speaker Chambers’ absence from the funeral has drawn the line between he (Dopoh) and the Speaker.

The River Gee lawmaker warns that whoever wants to come between them will feel the full weight.
He describes Speaker Chambers as a vindictive leader who is allegedly bent on abusing the moral sanctity of the
Rep. Dopoh claims that Speaker Chambers is unfit to lead the 54th Legislature.
Meanwhile, Rep. Dopoh is asking President George Manneh Weah to reshuffle his government because there are many that are working in the regime that are misplaced.
According to Rep. Dopoh, if President Weah will transform Liberia, there is a need for him to run the country void of friendship.By Bridgett Milton–Edited by Winston W. Parley
