The former political leader of the opposition Liberty Party (LP) who has fallen sick and is currently in the United States for medical treatment is said not be recovering from the illness, and is reportedly far from fully been recovered, according to family sources.
Cllr. Charles Brumskine was reported to be critically ill and was being attended to by doctors in the United States. In August, the Liberty Party National Executive Committee reacted to a widespread speculation that the former presidential candidate was dead. The party disputed the report and called on the nation to pray for Brumskine’s recovery.
His daughter, Charlyne Brumskine, wrote recently on her Facebook page thanking Liberians for their prayers, noting that her father was back on his feet after struggling in sickness for nearly two months.
However, she said the path to her father’s full recovery is still a long way. “It has not been easy, and we still have a long way to go, he still has a long road to full recovery,” the younger Brumskine wrote.
On behalf of her mother and siblings, she also thanked Liberians and all who prayed for the recovery of the former presidential candidate.
“Words cannot describe how grateful we are to you,” she also wrote.
She said while her ailing father was in his worst moment in the hospital, she saw people from all over the world, especially Liberians, unite in prayer in a way that touched her family deeply.
“We received prayers and messages of hope from senior government officials I have never met before – calls, texts, and social media posts from Liberians throughout the country,” she noted.
“During one of the most difficult times in my life, I saw Liberians as I have always known us to be compassionate, loving and unified in a common cause.”
She encouraged citizens and well wishes to continue their prayers until her father gains full recovery to his health.
