Liberia: Traditional Council Chief Pleads with Lofa Traditional Leaders not to Resume Blockage of Border
National Traditional Council of Liberia Chairman Chief Zanzan Kawor is pleading with traditional leaders of Lofa County not to resume the blockage of the border between Bong and Lofa Counties.
Zanzan Kawor’s plead comes after the traditional grandmaster of Lofa County gives the government of Liberia an ultimatum to certificate embattled senator-elect Brownie Samukai this December or declare reelection in Lofa County.
Chief Kawor comments also come a day after Minister of State for Presidential Affairs Nathaniel McGill blasted traditional leaders of Lofa County for blocking the border Between Bong and Lofa Counties in demand of the certification of senator-elect Brownie Samukai.
It can be recalled, Minister McGill addressing the Ministry of Information Culture Affairs and Tourism Regular Press Briefing on Thursday condemned in the strongest term, the mixture of the Country’s culture with politics in Lofa County.
According to him, it is shameful and embarrassing to see people bring tradition into public ridicule, noting that the best way to solve problems is to use the law and not through traditional means.
