Sports Writers Barred from Congress


Several Sports writers who converged last Saturday at the campus of the Bassa High School in Buchannan, Grand Bassa County have expressed dissatisfaction for being barred from the process.

Though properly identified by the Liberia Football Association, the writers were nonetheless refused entry to the venue of the elections of officials of the LFA.

A security official, identified only as Victor refused to allow sports writers, who were given entry badges from observing the proceedings at the 19th Congress of the Liberia Football Association.

The unhappy sports writers meanwhile congregated at a nearby club till around 5p.m when information about the results started to come in.

LFA Communication Director Henry B. Flomo had a difficult time to engage sports writers, concerning the limited number of accreditation badges.

However, when several of them were barred from entering, the journalists decided to wait outside the Bassa High School and whiled away the time.

SWAL President Roland Mulbah and several officers and members did not allow the situation to spoil their day, and former vice president Martina Brooks joined her colleagues to share in moments when dancing was the only thing they could do.

Re-elected EC Member Dee-Maxwell Kamayah meanwhile expressed regret for the decision to prevent sports writers from witnessing the occasion and called for better partnership between the LFA and the Sports Writers Association of Liberia, SWAL.
