FEMALE POLITICIAN IN LIBERIA REPORTS THREAT TO HER LIFE

Date:

LIBERIA – Supporters of the controversial political leader of the opposition Liberty Party, Senator Nyonblee Karnga are being accused of threatening the life of Miss Charlene Brumskine, a representative hopeful in Grand Bassa County.

Cllr. Charlyne Brumskine is the daughter of the opposition Liberty Party’s founding father, the late Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine. She told a recent radio interview that she has received death threats since she declared her intention to contest a legislative seat in her home county of Bassa.

The threat though is not from the ruling party, she disclosed that it is from her own party, especially from the Nyonblee Karnga’s faction.

Liberty Party is split into the Musa Bility’s faction and the Nyonblee Karnga’s faction. Cllr. Charlyne Brumskine is seen as supporting the Bility’s faction because she wrote her letter of intent to contest a legislative seat to the Musa Bility group.

Appearing on the OK FM recently, the Grand Bassa County representative hopeful for 2023, Charlyne Brumskine, did not accuse Nyonblee of ordering the threat on her life but alleged that it was her supporters who were making the death threats.

Charlyne told the radio that she has been facing death threats because she decided to contest for a representative seat in Bassa on the ticket of LP’s chairman Musa Bility’s faction instead of the Nyonblee faction.

Recently, Cllr Charlene Brumskine ordered the removal of signposts with her father’s photos at the Nyonblee Karnga faction offices in Bassa because she said they were being desecrated.

Senator Karnga has not been reached for comment, but an aide close to her who preferred not to be named rubbished the allegation.
