Monrovia, Liberia- Controversial and tough talking Montserrado County District #10 Lawmaker Hon. Yekeh Kolubah on Monday, was part of a group known as the Independent Legislative Caucus that met with President Weah in Monrovia to discuss some pertinent national issues.
Rep. Kolubah has been a critic of the Weah-led government and on several occasions, have accused the Liberian President of corruption and bad governance.
The meeting according to sources, was brokered by a top female Executive of the ruling CDC who bypassed Chairman Mulbah Morlu and Vice Chairman Acarous Gray to initiate a dialogue between the aggrieved lawmakers and the President. Both Morlu and Gray according to sources, have blocked several attempts for such meeting to be held, and is said to have been instrumental in persuading Speaker Bhofal Chambers from allowing communications from lawmakers of the independent bloc to hit the legislative floor or to reach the President of Liberia.
According to reports, President Weah expressed shock and dismay at many grievances put forward by the lawmakers during the meeting and told them he had no knowledge about certain things they informed him about.
The independent lawmakers report say, also told President Weah that Speaker Bhofal Chambers has failed to allow them speak on the floor of plenary, while favoring only CDCians and those who had favorable views about the President and the government. The lawmakers also expressed dissatisfaction at the Executive Branch for not receiving their benefits and Districts Project funds, something they say is strangulating their effectiveness in their constituencies.
Lawmakers of the of the Independent Legislative Caucus also initiated peace between President Weah and Hon. Kolubah, but whether the Montserrado County lawmaker apologized to the President, is not clear.
In attendance at the meeting were Information Minister Eugene Nagbe and Minister of State Nathaniel McGill.
