Menipakei Dumoe

Justice Minister Frank Musah Dean Jr. has ordered the release of opposition politician Menikpakei Dumoe, a release from the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism has announced.

According to the release, Dumoe was arrested on Tuesday, May 12, 2020 after a search of his home – which was sanctioned by the courts – for making comments deemed threatening to national security.

Earlier this week, he posted on his Facebook page that poor people in Monrovia needed “Ak47s so that the government can take us seriously”.

Minister Dean said an investigation by the Joint Security Forces, which includes the examination of materials from Dumoe’s home, is continuing.

He said the government remains committed to protecting the fundamental rights of everyone, even as it grapples with an unprecedented health crisis and urges all to refrain from making incendiary remarks which could undermine the hard-earned peace.

Liberia currently faces an existential threat that should claim the attention of all of us. Attempting to score political points when our compatriots die is unpatriotic.


  1. And this is a stern warning to all careless “talkers”! At least his backside has been taught a lesson. Next time before opening his immature mouth, he will “think twice”!

    • Cost for freedom is never provided on a silver platter as a free gift. Decent people usually win at any cost for their beliefs, for their opinions, for the liberty of us and the pursuit of other people’s happiness. You may referred to his political incarceration as a hard lesson learned, but he won the political mind game with support from many citizens. The regime is no longer invisible, the citizens have come to see through the regime. And you are now on the side of the minority and losing popular support very fast. The oppositions to the regime are not only political parties, but common citizens with common interests . The regime had no chance but to come to its senses that it could not win a political battle that citizens are against. After 2023 defeat of George, you have a chance to live in that country with liberty as a free man, or leave as a political troublemaker. But that country will be moving on with or without you.
