LIBERIA: The House Is Bereaved As Sinoe County Lawmaker Passes Off

The late Rep. J. Nagbe Sloh

Members of the House of Representatives and the people of Sinoe County are bereaved following the death of one of its members, Jay Nagbe Sloh after a protracted illness.

The former lawmaker who was representing the people of Sinoe County District # 2 was a tough-talking and on many occasions burst out on Speaker Bhofal Chambers for handling sessions in what he thought was a bias manner.

According to report, Representative died at the John F. Kennedy Memorial Medical Center in Monrovia, he was member of the Unity Party.

In May, Rep. Sloh called on the Press Union of Liberia to institute a media blackout on Speaker Chambers after he revoked the Capitol Building accreditation of Truth FM’s Musa Kanneh.

He formed a formidable alliance with the late Representative Adolph Lawrence and Mont County District 10 Representative Yekeh Kolubah that openly called for the removal of Speaker Chambers over allegation of corruption and the Speaker’s “inability to lead.”

As Chairman on Communication at the House, Rep. Sloh noted the media blackout would make the legislature acknowledge the role of the media and will refrain from making decisions that are not call for.

In February, he campaigned vigorously to see the ousting of Chambers as Speaker of the House.

In one of his interviews with Truth FM, he disclosed that his campaign to remove Chambers as Speaker was just short of nine signatures. He noted at the time that Speaker Chambers was of no help to the President and the governing Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC).

He was a vocal member of the Independent Legislative Caucus formed to ‘restore sanctity’ at the House of Representatives.

He formed a formidable alliance with the late Representative Adolph Lawrence and Mont County District 10 Representative Yekeh Kolubah that openly called for the removal of Speaker Chambers over allegation of corruption and the Speaker’s “inability to lead.”

Prior to his election, he served as the Head of Liberia News Agency.
