Writes Plenary; claims Morlu has indirectly attacked opposition politicians’ lives
Montserrado County District #10 Representative Yekeh Kolubah has written a letter to House Speaker Bhofal Chambers calling for an investigation into Molubah Morlu’s a statement indicting opposition politicians of wanting to assassinate President George Weah. Mr. Morlu is the National Chairman of the governing Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC).
Morlu said he accused members of the opposition parties to assassinate the President, because of the inconsiderate reaction towards the ‘assassination threat’ which went viral on social media.
In his letter to Speaker Chambers, dated February 7, 2019, Rep. Kolubah said he wants attention of the plenary drawn to “a very disturbing statement concerning the assassination of President Weah, as claimed by Mr. Morlu.
Kolubah is also the Co-chairman on the House Committee on National Defense and a member of the House National Security Committee.
“I am taking this allegation very serious, because it has the propensity to destabilize the country’s peace,” he told his colleagues.
“Mr. Morlu’s [remarks are] a complete instigation of attack on the lives of opposition political party leaders, and politicians in the country, which contravenes the tenet of democracy,” Kolubah said.
He added, “this is the same Mr. Morlu who said he saw pickups (vehicles) loaded with tons of Liberian dollars departing from the National Housing Bank, (and) today, we have a serious situation of missing L$16 billion untold story faced by the government.”
“Notwithstanding, Mr. Morlu is again insinuating that opposition politicians want to assassinate the President,” the letter said.
“I therefore crave for my colleagues to invite him to justify his assertion to this august body,” Rep. Kolubah said.
Meanwhile, Tuesday’s session of the House of Representatives, which should have been the 9th day sitting, was considered as the 1st Special Session of the 2nd Session of the House of Representatives of the 54th Legislature.
Yesterday’s Special Session was held in Executive and, therefore, Rep. Kolubah’s letter, according to sources in the office of the Chief Clerk, will be on the Thursday, February 14 agenda.
