Mr. Samukai was denied taken seat in the Senate after he won the last election for the county due to his alleged involvement of misapplication of monies belonging to the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Liberia, a situation that led to him being rejected.

The public, especially citizens of the county will today decide as to who to elect amongst six candidates Sumo G. Kupee, Galakpai Kortaimai, Joseph K. Jallah, Mariamu B. Fofana, George Beyan Samah, Johnny Nadebe and Momo Cyrus.
