COULD YEKEH KOLUBAH BE SMOKE-SCREAMING AMID SPEAKER KOFFA’S OUSTING?

Date:

A Patriot’s Diary

With Ekena Nyankun Juahgbe-Droh Wesley

When populist President George Manneh Weah sought to deliberately betray the trust of the masses, Montserrado District #10 lawmaker, Yekeh Kolubah made controversial headlines for being an outspoken critic of the CDC-led regime.

Yekeh gained undue popularity for his grotesque unsavory assault on former President Weah and gang throughout the previous government’s six-year reign. He was often uncouth in his criticism of Weah and the CDC’s excesses. He became a notorious parliamentary disruption! Such is the clumsy beauty of democracy in the wake of free speech – often abused flagrantly.

As Yekeh crazily gained notoriety or for some ‘popularity’ under Weah, critics of the opposition cheered him on amid mixed reactions. Surely, one man’s freedom fighter was seen as another’s terrorist then.

On the whole, Yekeh’s uncultured approach was a backdrop in his advocacy against a rogue regime even though his claims were genuine. Corruption was rife. Looting became a free for all madness! Politically motivated killings were scary. Weah and cohorts subjected the national coffers to unwarranted bleeding. Fear had gripped the citizenry. The population was panting for security that was found wanting.

Yekeh’s voice seemed like one in the wilderness as lawlessness raged. Only a few stood tall despite the risk involved. And Yekeh fought tooth and nail to challenge the status quo to the detriment of his own life. He went to great lengths amid a frostily fought election but did not wither in his ardent support for Boakai.

Amid the dramatic change of leadership, Yekeh seems unbending in his outspokenly critical mind-frame of a regime he helped to bring to power. Does it matter what manner of regime, especially when the fight is supposedly in pursuit of the truth?

Yekeh’s old friends in what became an unholy marriage against a common enemy seem to be in the driving seat. What he stood for then seemed to have united them yesterday doesn’t really matter today. Wow! The trappings of a locus shift in Political power.

Since President Boakai took over, Yekeh has sought to employ the very tactics that he vehemently used against former President Weah but it appears folks in the new administration are making no sense of a man that has become a political renegade.

Whether Yekeh’s latest revelation that Boakai wants Speaker Koffa’s head is mere smoke-screaming remains to be seen as the District #10 lawmaker is the only one making such wild allegations.

Why would President Boakai want Speaker J. Fonati Koffa ousted? Is it the issue of trust? Is Koffa feared for being seemingly powerful? Boakai’s UP dropped every attempt at balloting with Koffa when the signs were clear that the UP was going nowhere in the race for the Speakership. Without doubt, it takes numbers to win and the UP didn’t have the numbers as it were, folks. Strangely, even UP lawmakers had already pledged support to Speaker Koffa

As we say in Liberia, where there is smoke, there’s fire. Only time will tell whether Hon. Yekeh Kolubah’s latest media stunt has any merit. The coming days and weeks might add up provided the smoke can eventually amount to fire in the latest saga.
