DABAH VARPILAH: A RESPONSE TO MY NIECE, LEYMAH GBOWEE

Date:

Dear Leymah,

I read your letter addressed to officials of the Unity Party including me, dated January 16, 2023, via Facebook.

I am constrained to respond to you on Facebook knowing that you have never been inaccessible to me as I have never been in like manner. But I have to do this because you have chosen this medium to communicate your view on a matter you know little about and definitely seems you don’t care to know.

Regarding your Uncle Joe Boakai’s health, our values dictate that we are to empathize and wish well to those who are down and often give helping hands. But without reaching out to your Uncle Joe and not knowing much about his health status, you have taken upon yourself the role of a medical doctor to pronounce him as not being in the “position to contest”  and proposing a “political merger” for the sole purpose of winning an election. This, I believe is a well-thought-through political move that doesn’t represent the purpose of “peace and development” as indicated by your post.

Your uncle Joe Boakai, like any human being, was sick, taken to the hospital as it is normally done when one falls sick and he is now well, discharged from the hospital, and home with his family awaiting full recovery. I believe that he looks forward to a niece’s call or visit from you, whenever you are back in the country, and other well-wishers.

Regarding your proposal for a political merger, please note that mergers are not the only way to do politics in 2023. There are collaborations and endorsements. The Unity Party is currently collaborating and remains engaged with several other political parties and individuals, some of whom have publicly declared support for your Uncle Joe’s presidential bid ahead of the October polls.

We are in several of these political arrangements and look forward to the full inclusion of every other Liberian who believes that President George Weah is both a political and a democratic error that must not be repeated in October.

The Unity Party is fully cognizant of it’s role and responsibility in rescuing this Country from what is a total collapse under the CDC regime and will do nothing to disappoint our people.

Thank you.

Your aunty,

Dabah Varpiliah
