The Secretary General of the opposition Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) has received resounding condemnation from the public for his alleged involvement in ordering the flogging of a Transport Inspector over the weekend for performing his duty.

Mr. Janga Augustus Kowo, according to report aired on some local radio stations in Monrovia ordered some partisans of the CDC to flogged an Inspector of the Ministry of Transport in Congo Town after he was stopped for the inspection of his vehicle; a regular routine ongoing by both the Ministry of Transport and the Liberia National Police.

According to report, the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) Secretary General upon being asked by the Transport Inspector to display his vehicle he asked one of the traffic officers who stopped him to ride with him in his vehicle under the pretext that he was taking him to the location where his vehicle documents were.

But unfortunately, upon disembarking on board his vehicle at the headquarters of the CDC, he allegedly ordered the flogging of the police officer by his partisans, an incident that pondered the minds of many Liberians who called on some local radio stations Call-In-Programs condemning the action on the part of the CDC executive.

This report could not be independently confirmed as all efforts by this outlet to contact Mr. Kowo, the accuser and some executives of the party via mobile phone proved unsuccessful, as their mobile phone rang endlessly.

Our investigation continues.
