Vice President Jewel Howard Taylor seems to always be in the news both for good and bad reasons.At one instant, VP Taylor publicly apologized to President Weah about her increasing travels out of the country without informing the President.
But suspicions abound about strain in the relationship between the former First Lady and ex-wife of jailed former president Charles Taylor, who then Senator George Weah picked as running mate during the 2017 elections.
The latest speculation surrounds a social media post in which President George M. Weah is being cautioned to be careful with his Vice President Jewel Howard-Taylor.
According to the post, a well known Liberian journalist was spotted at Vice President Taylor’s residence by 3:00 am Sunday probably to plan some dirty games against Weah and his government.
The poster identified as Musa Swaray claims Madam Taylor wants to undermine President Weah in order to gain fame, something he describes as an NPP agenda.Swaray writes, “Prezo, we know this woman. Please be careful with her. Her own former husband Charles Taylor never trusted her. Where there is smoke, fire is not far from there; Mr. President. Don’t eat to Jewel’s house; don’t say I didn’t tell you.”
But a local group dismisses the post as FAKE INFORMATION, noting that from the general perspective of the Liberian people who know Vice President Jewel Howard Taylor, “She harbours no ill will towards her chief and her President and she is the greatest fan of President Weah.”
The group says if Swaray and his likes have nothing to contribute to the social and economic development of Liberia, it is time they shut up.“When Jewel, who is a God fearing child, says she is for you, she is for you. She believes in her boss President Weah and together they will ensure that the CDC led government succeeds.”
According to the group, such post which is intended to sow seeds of discord within the ruling CDC and between President Weah and Vice President Taylor, cannot change anything because the President believes in her, saying It will never be and the President, His Excellency George Manneh Weah will never listen or give credence to their evil plan against the party that the so-called Musa Swaray and his likes want to destroy under the pretense that they are fighting Vice President Taylor with unfounded and mischievous information on facebook page.
