President George Manneh Weah’s recent declaration during his annual address to the nation where he noted, “Let us all exert our best effort to ensure that, in the cause of the people, the struggle must end!, a Liberian cleric and head Pastor of the Faith Healing Temple of Jesus Christ, Henry Saway has said the President’s statement is to the contrary.
Addressing his congregation during the regular Sunday worship service at the Church’s edifice, February 4, 2018 in Monrovia, Rev. Saway said the advocacy by the Liberian leader to allow foreigners to own land, especially the whites; this means the beginning of another struggle has just begun when ordinary Liberians will not be able to control their own land in their own country.
During his annual address, President said, “Liberian citizens are free to purchase property in any other country as non-citizens, yet our Constitution and laws will not allow similar privileged to be accorded to the citizens of other nations. I therefore strongly recommend that this restriction be removed, and that the appropriate rules and regulations of the Land Commission and other relevant agencies be amended and strengthened to accommodate this new development, if approved by referendum,” President Weah told his fellow compatriots.
Reacting to the President’s statement, Rev. Saway delivering his ‘powerful’ Sunday sermon decried the statement, making reference of the people Zimbabwe where the White’s took over their land which eventually led to land conflict in that part of Africa, called on the President to rethink his decision, stressing, “In deed the struggle for Liberians must end,” Rev. Saway amidst applauds from the congregation noted.
