The Acting youth chairman of Walapolu Clan in Zota District, Bong County, Lawrence Kpanah has described as immoral, his alleged denial to represent his Clan in the just ended County Council Sitting by Representative Robert Flomo Womba.
Lawrence told our Bong County correspondent recently that he received a communication from the District Youth president John Wenepolue, requesting his attendance at the just ended County Council Sitting on behalf of the youth of Walapolu Clan.
Lawrence alleges that he was replaced on Monday, 12 November by Rep. Womba with one of the lawmaker’s office staff Cecelia Mulbah, a resident of Gbarnga, Bong County.
Lawrence deems Rep. Womba’s alleged action denying him the opportunity to attend the County Sitting as a conflict of interest that will stall the progress of Zota District.
Lawrence Kpannah was a staunch supporter of defeated District #4 Representative Candidate Susannah Lorpu Mator.
Rep. Womba’s leadership is facing accusation of alleged marginalization by sources, and others think it will narrow his chances for re-election in 2023.
According to statistics, since 2005, no Representative in Bong County Electoral District #4 has ever retained the seat for a second term.
Former Rep. Edwin Juah of Naama Town Zota District, was elected in 2005 and was subsequently replaced at the ballot box in 2011 through the election of Lester Paye from Foloquelleh.
Paye was equally replaced in the 2017 general elections by the election of Rep. Womba who hails from Kpaquellie Clan.When contacted, Rep. Womba stated that he cannot respond to such story on grounds that he has other things to do.
Mr. Womba stated that whatever he wants to do in his district, that’s his will and he do not expect people to criticize him.
