Rep Munah Pelham-Youngblood

Another member of the House of Representative, Munah Pelham-Youngblood of Montserrado County District # 9 is dead, according to the report, Rep. Pelham died an hour ago in Ghana.

Over the past years, the Montserrado County lawmaker had been undergoing serious treatment which took her to several countries including Nigeria where it was reported that she visited the Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN) of Prophet TB Joshua prior to her reported death.

The death news of Representative Munnah Pelham, stalwart of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) comes less than a week when the death news of Sinoe County District # 2 Representative Jay Nagbe Sloh was announced following a brief illness at the J F Kennedy Medical Hospital in Monrovia.

According to a local online outlet, the home of the Montserrado County, District #9 lawmaker in Sinkor, Monrovia was said to be parked with hundreds of her admirers, friends and relatives who had gone there to seek clarity from the mother of Rep Pelham.

However, the Chairman of the ruling CDC, Mulbah Morlu, confirmed to FrontPageAfrica Wednesday that the lawmaker has passed. “A real tragedy has hit the CDC with the passing of Rep. Youngblood. We are all in deep, deep shock. She was such a young and beautiful soul.”

Chairman Morlu added: “We’re devastated by the news of Hon. Pelham’s untimely death; the CDC has lost a Revolutionary Lioness, an accomplished ideological partisan that has sprawled an indelible mark on the horizons of our popular struggle. At this point, it’s not even possible to grasp the extent of the damage of this tragic news and how heavily it bears on the revolutionary psyche of the CDC. We’re shattered in spirit.”
