Monrovia, Liberia- Deputy Information for Press and Public Affairs at the Ministry of Information Mr. Eugene Fahngon was ordered to leave the hearing of Hon. Yekeh Kolubah held at the Ministry of Justice on Monday after the Montserrado County District #10 lawmaker demanded his ejection.
Hon. Kolubah was responding to a citation by the Justice Ministry to clarify statements made on Sunday, April 14, 2019 when he pledged his support to the opposition collaboration of the Unity Party, Alternative National Congress, Liberty Party and the All Liberia Party.
The Montserrado lawmaker earlier refused to honor the MOJ citation, but on was escorted by his lawyer Cllr. Pearl Brown-Bull to clarify statements made on Monday.
Immediately after the hearing, Hon. Kolubah was overwhelmed by supporters and with his lawyer by his side, spoke to journalists.
He informed reporters that the hearing is expected to be concluded by next Monday, and urged his supporters to remain calm and peaceful. Speaking in a rather subtle tone, Rep. Kolubah said that he has no intention of making Liberia to get in another round of chaos.
“We are out for peace, and we speak peace,” Rep. Kolubah said.
Meanwhile, Rep. Kolubah refused to reveal details of the meeting, promising to speak on the matter at a later date. However, he promised to introduce a bill at the Liberian Legislature for the impeachment of President Weah for violating the laws of Liberia.
Whether Rep. Kolubah will go ahead with the submission of said bill on the floor of the legislature after meeting President Weah late Monday is not clear.
In the meantime, the District #10 lawmaker vowed to remain critical of the CDC-led government and President George Weah.
