Elders Council and Local Chiefs demand Peace among River Gee Legislative Caucus

George Kayee(GNN-Liberia River Gee Correspondent)

geeSince the pronouncement of Mr. Philip Nyenuh as Superintendent of River Gee County along with five local officials in April 2016 by the Liberia leader, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, four members of the County’s Legislative Caucus have been protesting their appointments.

With accusing fingers at one of the members of the Caucus, Senator Conmany Wesseh of masterminded the process single handedly because of his closeness to the president, but Senate Wesseh has rubbished the allegation saying such function is constitutional, and falls within the purview of the President.

This situation did not put to rest the mixed feelings among other members of the Caucus until the remains of former River Gee senator J. Nathaniel Williams was flown into the county on October 6, 2016.

The citizens, chiefs and elders during the performing of all ceremonies for the burial of the fallen River Gee Senator, members of the Caucus were still at still loggerheads which gave rise for elders of the County to get involve in mediating to settle the dust between their County’s lawmakers, and also demanding lasting peace among them.
