The Gbowee Peace Foundation Africa (GPFA) has clarified here that at no time did it ever cheer for a specific political party during its peaceful protest recently held at the Boulevard Palace Hotel in Sinkor, suburb of Monrovia.
In a Release issued over the weekend, GPFA says it did not at anytime cheer for any person or any political party or standard bearer, saying it is a non-political institution and its only interest is sustaining the peace in Liberia.
GPFA and the Liberia Women Mass Action for Peace say they are taken aback by a story published in the NewDawn newspaper with caption: “Weah was a local hero for women.”
“We demand that the paper retract this story immediately, because this statement has the propensity to undermine our peace building initiatives and our credibility with our local and international partners,” the Foundation says.
The release however narrates that it is true that the two institutions were outside the Boulevard Palace Hotel with placards, insisting that the peace be sustained here.–Press release
