Minister Sirleaf Commends First Lady Weah

Madam Weah and Minister Sirleaf posed at the end of the visit.

Internal Affairs Minister Varney Sirleaf has commended the First Lady, Clar Marie Weah, for “taking care of the country’s underprivileged.”

Minister Sirleaf made the commendation yesterday, August 9, 2018, when Madam Weah received him in audience at her Foreign Ministry offices on Capitol Hill, Monrovia, a release said.

The Internal Affairs Minister, according to the release, held a brief discussion with Madam Weah and expressed appreciation over the First Lady’s humanitarian work, especially caring for “underprivileged Liberians.”

Minister Sirleaf described Madam Weah’s initiatives as an essential boost to government’s efforts aimed at enhancing the livelihood of its people.

Sirleaf particularly named the First Lady’s support to orphanages, the construction of the old folk’s home in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, and the program to feed the elderly in Montserrado County.

Minister Sirleaf then reaffirmed his support to the First Lady’s humanitarian initiatives across the country.

First Lady Clar Marie Weah thanked the minister for the courtesy call, and welcomed his support.

She assured Minister Sirleaf of her commitment to continue reaching out to the less fortunate in an effort to improve their living standards.


  1. This lady is an illegal alien! She is not naturalized and has been working with a budget approved by the legislature as if they don’t know what is going on? This lady even reportedly voted in the past election as an illegal! That even disqualifies her for any future admission as a naturalized citizen. This is no joking matter! This should be the first of its kind in history that the first lady of a country is not even a citizen (naturalized or not). Any future citizenship case against any employer in Liberia should use this case as example of how the law or immigration in Liberia is biased against ordinary violators vs the barracuda type. Simple!

    • “The love of Liberty , brought the first lady here” lol. Let’s assume the first lady is one of the last of the settlers/pioneers to arrive, so she doesn’t require a visa/permit! Even though Liberia has an “Alien and nationality act/law “, I don’t see and/or haven’t come across any literature (act/law )where it technically sets a deadline for the return of former “free slaves” and/or descendants of free slaves from returning. Theoretically, all free “slaves” (referring to those taken from Africa to the Americas ) and descendants of free slaves could return to Liberia and settle legally as Liberians. The land was “bought” for that purpose.

      One might argue that the “single” nationality stand in the “Nationality Act” might smash this reasoning, but many of the repatriates who returned in the early 20s were US or Carribean citizens, they didn’t denounce their former citizenship, yet were accepted as Liberians. I believe this is a loophole in the law and can be argued through the legal system.

      I stand to be corrected here by historians and legal minds! I am a liberal when it comes to the nationality debate.

      On the practical side of things and for curiosity, I have been wondering how the first lady handles immigration formalities when exiting and landing on Liberian territory. What are here nationalities (I believe she is both Jamaican and a US citizen)? What passports does she bear ? I know however , that it is not uncommon for a Liberian diplomatic passport to be issued to a foreign national/citizen ( especially consuls). Is she a holder of a Liberian diplomatic passport?
