Miss Liberia Rubbishes ‘Drug Peddler’ Story, But MICAT Wants Title Revoke

MS. Wokie Dolo asked to handover Crown

Following media reports that the 2017 winner of the Miss Liberia Beauty Contest, Ms. Wokie Dole was arrested at a London Airport with cocaine in her possession, an allegation she denied noting that she never travel out of the Country, authority at the Ministry of Information has with immediate effect called on the Queen to turn over the crown given her and other items to the first-rounded up of the 2016/2017 event.

Addressing reporters in Monrovia at the Ministry of Information, the Assistant Minister for Tourism, Jackie Capethart Miss. Wokie Dolo will be dethroned and that all immunities withdrawn from her for what she called her ‘Misconduct and disorderly behavior’ allegedly carried out on the grounds of the Ministry of Information recently.

The terms of reference of ‘Miss Liberia’ states that the queen should at all times ride a taintless vehicle for the period which allows her to serve as the Country’s Queen, and that an office space be made available for her at the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism, something which the Minister claimed was violated by Miss. Dolo.

Minister Capethart speaking to reporters further maintained that she had on several occasions warned Miss Dolo regarding the Terms of Reference (TOR) of the ‘Miss Liberia’, she Dolo persistently failed to adhere to despite of many communications to her.

Capethart further noted that she has filed a communication to the office of the Minister of Information complaining the misconduct of Miss. Dolo last week, and therefore, called on Miss. Dolo to handover the crown and other benefits to the runner-up to perform that duty.
