Mr. Mohamed S. Kromah

NEW YORK —A veteran administrator with more than 30 years in public service and institutional management both in Liberia and the United States, Honorable Mohamed S. Kromah is being urged to contest the senatorial seat vacated by President George Manneh Weah in Montserado County, Liberia.

Since January 1, 2018, thousands of Liberians have been calling upon Honorable Kromah to contest the senatorial seat.  Many of those urging Mr. Kromah include prominent leaders from various tribal groups in Monrovia and throughout the country.

Mr. Kromah brings a wealth of experience, having served in senior management positions in the United States and as a former managing director of the Liberia Industrial Free Zone Authority (LIFZA) during the administration of interim president (Chairman) Charles Gyude Bryant.

As head of the Free Zone, Honorable Kromah made several promising international arrangements to establish an Industrial Park in Montserrado County that would have provided a great opportunity to create and provide private sector job opportunities for Liberians.

The industrial park which Honorable Kromah still envisions and for which he has maintained regular contacts with prospective investors would also serve as an outlet for foreign products.

Last year, the World Conference of Mayors appointed Honorable Kromah to serve on its Planning Committee for the WCM Detroit 2017, according to a dispatch that quoted Reverend Jim Holley, organizing Chairman for the World Conference of Mayors Detroit 2017.

In the communication sent to Honorable Kromah and signed by its Chairman, the world mayors had tasked the seasoned Liberian administrator with the recruiting of attendees and sponsors for the World Conference of Mayors Landmark conference which was hosted by the WCM and supported by the City of Detroit in the United States.
