Lofa County Sen. Steve Zargo has condemned a bill to impeach Justice Kabineh M. Ja’neh, describing it as meaningless and inappropriate. Addressing a team of journalists in Gbarnga recently, Sen. Zargo says the country is faced with economic hardship and other issues that must be addressed, rather than less important things.
He says the Liberty Party (LP) will not give credence to issues that are of no benefit to Liberians, urging those behind the impeachment of Justice Ja’neh to rethink and redirect their actions.
Montserrado County Lawmakers Thomas Fallah and Arcarious Gray of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) proffered a bill of impeachment against Justice Ja’neh some weeks back.
They accused him of alleged misconduct, abuse of public office, wanton abuse of judicial discretion, frauds, misuse of power and corruption.
But Sen. Zargo indicates that he sees no reason for impeachment at this time.
According to him, such move is a clear manifestation that those seeking Justice Ja’neh’s removal are not working in the interest of the citizens, especially when the country is struggling economically.
“Why will some of [our] colleagues … be talking about impeaching a Justice? We need to be talking about how we can improve the lives of our citizens but not to be bringing unnecessary things onboard,” he says.
He argues that Liberia’s problem is not from those on the Supreme Court Bench. Sen. Zargo believes that lack of sincerity has been the problem here, adding that when leaders of the country are sincere to themselves, the Country stands to move on the right trajectory. He has called on Reps. Thomas Fallah and Acarous Moses Gray to redirect their action and fight for the improvement of the Country.
