Monrovia, Liberia- Information reaching the Liberian Billboard says, former Chair of the Coalition for Democractic Change and Junior Senator of Montserrado County, Geraldine Doe-Sheriff has died in Accra, the capital of the West African Country of Ghana.
Madam Doe-Sheriff, according to family sources, died in Accra on Saturday from an unexplained illness which she has been battling for sometime now.

“This is the most shocking news of 2019 so far. I can’t believe that an action filled and vibrant woman like Senator Sheriff will just die like that. Liberia has lost a true politican and patriot,” a citizen of Montserrado told the Liberian Billboard.
When contacted, family sources told The Liberian Billboard that no funeral arrangement has been planned, and the public will be informed about developments in that effect.
