Montserrado County district ten lawmaker, Yekeh Kolubah is calling for the impeachment of President George Weah as President of Liberia.
Speaking in an interview with reporters on the grounds of the capitol building, Representative Kolubah said his decision to call for the impeachment of the Liberian leader is triggered by the alleged violations of the Liberian Constitution by President Weah.
“What is best in the interest of the Liberian people is that the President, Ambassador George Weah should be impeached on grounds that he has violated all of the laws of the country,” Representative Kolubah told journalists.
The Montserrado County Representative asserted that the President violated the Code of Conduct and the Liberian Constitution relating to the holding of by-elections in the country.
Representative Kolubah indicated that upon the return of the legislature from its Independence Day, he would introduce an impeachment Bill for the Liberian head of state, Ambassador George Weah.
Making direct reference to the recent address made by President Weah, the tough talking Representative said it is the President who should now be patient with the Liberian people and stop building his properties all across the country, instead of the Liberian people bearing patient with him.
“The President is telling the Liberian people to hold their heart and be patient with his administration but then he is building all of his properties around here, I think he should be holding his heart and stop building and address the needs of the Liberian people,” Representative Kolubah stressed.
Representative Kolubah assertion comes in the wake of calls for the impeachment of Associate Justice Kabineh Ja’neh of the Supreme Court by some Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) lawmakers, Representatives Acarous Gray and Thomas Fallah of Montserrado County districts eight and five respectively.
Meanwhile, the Montserrado county district ten lawmaker indicated that he fears nothing in calling for the impeachment of President Weah as he stands ready to pursue his call at all cost.
