Where Are The Sons And Daughters Of The Southeastern Counties Of Liberia, Amid Deplorable Road Conditions?

By Joel C. Brooks

President George Manneh Weah

The recent visit to the southeast by journalists to observe this year’s World Press Freedom Day (WPFD), May 3rd, 2022 saw the deplorable condition of roads in that part of the country, a situation that has hampered the free movement of goods and services, and the movement of  citizens and other residents.

These unbearable conditions created as a result of deplorable roads in that part of Liberia gave rise to more questions than answers as to what has been the meaningful role  played by citizens who hailed from that part of the country, and who are also occupying high profile positions in the CDC-led Government.

According to GNN investigative statistics, dozens of high profile officials who hailed from the southeast include the President of Liberia, Dr. George Manneh Weah (Grand Kru County), Senator Albert T. Chie; President Pro-Temporal (Grand Kru County), Dr. Bhofal Chambers, Speaker of the House of Representatives (Maryland County), and Deputy Speaker Jonathan Fonati Koffa (Grand Kru County), Others include Justice Joseph Nagbe (Grand Kru County), and Justice Jamesetta Howard Wolokollie (Maryland County).

Others who hailed from these counties including their respective Senators and Representatives, while other senior and junior cabinet ministers, and directors are enjoying their respective positions, but failed to realizing the suffering their people are going through in these counties, specifically the challenges being faced due to the deplorable road conditions in their respective locale.

Our staff who visited several areas in the counties, noticed that citizens of these counties who spoke to our staff appeared disappointed in their leaders, especially those in high profile position in this CDC-led government, wondering as to their commitment to develop their respective counties.

According to report, many of those who hailed from these counties and are in high profile positions usually less countered hardship in getting their location via the air  and not by road; these roads are indeed challenging if you are to travel by vehicles from Monrovia to what destinations you wish to go.

The residents speaking to our reporters, called on the Liberian leader to make an impromptus tour to these affected counties by road to see the actual effect of the suffering of his people, “ I want to call on the President to visit some of these counties without prior information to see what we are going through,” Johnny Toe, a resident of Fishtown, Rivergee speaking on the issue urged.

The sons and daughters of these affected counties must see reason in coming to the rescue of their kinsmen, particularly solving these deplorable road conditions in their counties from where they hailed from.
