The Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) of Senators George Weah and Jewel Howard Taylor has suffered the departure of another executive member of the Party, Mr. Kanio Bai Gbala resigned last week for some unknown reasons.
The Resignation of Kanio Bai Gbala from the Party was confirmed by the Secretary General of the Party, Janga Kowoh during an interview with a local radio station today.
Kanio Gbala served as the chairman of the Press and Public Affairs Committee of the Coalition.
In a letter addressed to the Chairman of the party, Mr. Nathaniel McGill, Mr. Gbala wrote:
“Chairman McGill, I visualize myself as a man of personal conviction, consistency, and honor and so this is probably one of the most difficult decisions I’ve had to make my entire life.”
“Our dear country Liberia has witnessed some of the worst man-made and/natural disaster that can plague a nation. We are amongst the most destitute in the world and our people live lives akin to those during the middle ages. “
“As October 2017 approaches, we are afforded another opportunity to within the Executive and Legislative branches of government to reverse this negative narrative.”
“I aim with 100% certainty to be an active player within these processes especially in District 3 of Montserrado where I will contest as a representative.”
Kanio was not specific as to why he was suspending his membership, but FrontPageAfrica has been reliably informed that he is about to join the All Liberian Party (ALP headed by Liberian business mogul Benoni Urey who withdrew his support from the CDC in late 2013.
In recent time, there has been some rigmarole within the CDC as to who contests district seats on the party’s ticket in the October elections ahead of primaries.
