A man who purported for several months as Dey Governor Jakee Brown has been finally dethroned by citizens of Bomi County.
Jakee Brown, former United States military personnel was dethroned during a mass citizen consultative meeting at the weekend in Jenneh number 3 in Dewion district, Bomi County.
The citizens at the mass gathering expressed their displeasure over Mr. Brown’s attitude to become a self-acclaimed tribal Governor by overwhelmingly voting him out.
He has been replaced by the former Chief of Office Staff to former Speaker Alex Tyler, Edwin Johnson, while Ma Konah Williams goes Vice Governor and Abendego Daniels as Announcer.
Brown had claimed he was confronted by cross section of Bomi citizens mainly chiefs from the VOA # 1 community to serve as their Governor after the death of former Dey Governor Blama Gaye.
But some citizens of the county contended that Mr. Brown was not their Governor after which an official complaint was filed to the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Governor Council of Liberia, Musu Thompson.
Under his brief purported administration, Mr. Brown warned the City Council Chairman of Brewerville Soko Wiles against intervening into tribal cases, something that sparked serious misunderstanding.
Citizens of Bomi County had constantly complained about the decision of Mr. Brown to hijack the Dey Governor position, terming him as a stranger.
According to a GNN reporter who witnessed the process of a new Dey Governor said the purported Jakee Brown was conspicuously absent from the gathering.
The Liberian Flag hosted before the Brewerville residence of Mr. Brown has been removed following his removal as a purported Dey Governor, but a picture depicting him and others in traditional attire remain on his fence.
The names of newly elected Dey Governor Edwin Johnson, Vice Governor Ma Konah Williams and Announcer were presented to the Governor Council of Liberia, Musu Thompson and Senator Morris Saytumah for onward presentation to the Ministry of Internal Affairs for prompt action.
