VP Taylor Blamed for Confusion in Bong

first_imgVP Taylor (4th from right with hands crossed) poses with local officialsCitizens demand that she apologize and desistSeveral Bong County citizens have blamed Vice President Jewel Howard Taylor for the confusion in the county because of statements attributed to her. The citizens condemned the Vice President’s statements and called on her to return home to make an open apology to the people.Some of the citizens, who spoke on the community radio station’s Saturday morning phone-in program on June 2, claimed that the VP’s recent statement threatening the dismissal of local officials who will not join the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) has the propensity to further divide the locals and stir up confusion in the minds of their leadership.The citizens made the statements on several radio talk shows like the Kwatekeh, “Open Platform, which is Radio Gbarnga Rendezvous and the Super Bongese Morning Show.Recently, VP Taylor, who served as Senator for 12 years, while installing local officials into their respective offices in Gbarnga, said it is impossible for the government to work with people with whom she does not share the same political ideology.“The Bible says how can two walk together if they don’t agree. For us to agree, we must be on the same side, so if you think you can’t make it, tell us and we’ll find somebody else,” the VP warned the local leadership. “If any chief wants to see me, you have to get to Representative Marvin Cole and the Superintendent of Bong County, Madam Esther Walker. If you don’t get to them and approve your problem, please don’t come to me,” the Vice President told the inducted officials.“I am not scared of anybody, only God and the President of Liberia, so if you feel you will not work with us, you’ll be replaced,” Madam Taylor informed the local officials. The Vice President, who is known for making controversial statements, said similar actions were taken during the Unity Party regime when people were made to join the ruling establishment at the time.Barely a week following the VP’s threat, some of the citizens have raised objections to her statements which they said were causing further confusion in the county, adding, “the Vice President is the highest government official there, and should therefore be the one to take the lead to reconcile, but not to make these kinds of declarations. It scares us as citizens,” each of the callers emphasized.The citizens said it was unfortunate that anyone in the county who holds a contrary position to the ruling Coalition of Democratic Change (CDC)  were being subjected to intimidation and harassment with the use of the coercive apparatus of the state.“Most of the people who worked with the local government have been removed from their posts by Electoral District #3 Representative Josiah Marvin Cole, and replaced by CDC partisans, a situation that is creating bad blood among the citizens” the talk show callers stated.Jackson Quianbian, a supporter of the former ruling Unity Party, who opposed Rep. Cole’s election in 2017, was replaced by the secretary-general of the CDC in Bong, Sayblee Weyea as Labor Commissioner, while Quianbian’s Deputy, William Summorward, chairman of the People’s Unification Party (PUP), was replaced by C. Tarwoe Walonfa, a fanatic of Rep. Cole.A week ago, on the recommendation of Rep. Cole, the County Education Officer, Samuel Koenig, was replaced by James Zuannah, a staunch supporter of the CDC in the county.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
