Speaking on a local radio station via mobile phone, the Superintendent of Grand Gedeh County, Kai Farley confirmed Thursday attack on officials of the Collaborating Political Parties in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County, but said the arrival of officials of the CPP in the County did not meet the consent of his office.

Superintendent Farley speaking further disclosed that previous visits by political leaders in the county his office was always in aware, but wondered why the CPP delegation did not inform his office, and other county officials of their arrival in the county.

Superintendent Farley’s disclosure publicly on a local radio has created more questions than answers, as to his direct involvement in the Thursday attack where dozens of citizens, mainly youths stormed the guest house where Mr. Alexander Cummings and Representative Yekeh Kolubah were logged after touring Maryland and River gee counties.

Some Liberians in their reaction against Superintendent Farley, condemned his assertion, noting that he may be aware of what took place on Thursday, July 30, 2020 when group of young people in their number angrily surround the B-2 Guest House chanting anti-slogan demanding the departure of the CPP officials from the county with immediate effect.

Due to the seriousness of such violence, members of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) were compelled to save the situation by deploying soldiers for the save departure of Mr. Cummings and Representative Kolubah from the County.
