CDC in Crisis Political Leader, Executive Member At Each Other’s Throats

George-WeahThe main opposition political party of Liberia, the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) of football legend, Senator George Weah  is said to be in serious  crisis as one of its executive members who is also a Senator, Dr. Peter Coleman at each other’s throats for policy differences.

Recently the political leader of the CDC called on the executive committee of the party to allow its grievance and ethics Committee to seek clarification from Senator Dr. Peter Coleman (CDC-Grand Kru) about his alleged involvement in the JFK Hospital saga where report said Dr. Coleman is receiving allowances in the face of corruption allegation against that medical institution.

In his communication, the office of Senator Weah said the former health minister must face probe in order to clear his link on the JFK Medical Center corruption allegation, who is a member of the party’s legislative caucus, on his monthly receipt of professional service fees from the John F. Kennedy Medical Center.

In reaction to his political leader assertion that he should be probed on his alleged link to the JFA saga, the Grand Kru Senator described the statement from his political leader as  a “Joke and laughable” on the part of  Senator Weah to have issued such a statement calling for him to be probed.

He said his professional service at  the JFK has saved the Government of Liberia of thousands of dollars because if any expatriate had been recruited, it would cost the GOL not less than Ten Thousand United States (USS10, 000.00) a month.
