Bomi County Citizens Threaten To Impeach Senator Sando Johnson, As Supt Brown Urges Justice Ministry To Probe The Senator

Bomi County Senator, Sando Johnson publicly attacking the reputation of his colleague, Rep Edwin Melvin Snowe

Following series of public attacks of his legislative colleagues on a local radio station in Monrovia with invectives, and other insults, some group of citizens of Bomi County has threatened to march on Capitol to petition the National Legislature for their action.

A local journalist in the County speaking via mobile phone aired on ELBC this morning, August 3, 2017 said the citizens expressed their anger following an attack publicly on the reputation of Montserrado County District # 6, Edwin Melvin Snowe who has also expressed his intent to run for legislative seat in District # 1 in the County.

According to the journalist, the citizens in a mass meeting called yesterday, August 2, 2017, recounted the uncivilized utterance of Senator Johnson calling his colleague (Rep. Edwin Snowe) on public radio dog and homosexual was unbecoming as a legislator, and therefore noted that he should be removed as their Senator.

In a related development, Bomi County Superintendent, Samuel Brown has requested the Ministry of Justice to probe Senator Sando Johnson for alleging that arms and ammunition have been stockpiled in the County by Representative Edwin Melvin Snowe to attack him, Senator Sando Johnson for advocating for the people of Bomi County.

Wednesday of this week, August 2, 2017, Senator Johnson on ‘Henry Costa’ show lambasted Representative Snowe of expressing his intent to contest in his County, Bomi County, noting that Rep Snowe will not be accepted in his county, and at the same time using blasphemy words on him.

Listeners who were opportune to listen to this live broadcast were angered over the manner exhibited by the Bomi County Senator by insulting his colleague publicly without curtesy in his utterance. “This guy must be punished by the leadership of the legislature, his behavior on local station has degraded the entire House,” one of those who monitored the discussion with Senator Johnson said disappointingly.
