LIBERIA – The Strategic Committee of Julius Kanubah for the Presidency of the Press Union of Liberia (PUL) has paid tribute to fallen Liberian journalist Phillip Wesseh, describing him as a champion of media freedom and freedom of expression as well as ethical and quality journalism in Liberia.

Veteran journalist Phillip Wesseh, who worked with the Daily Observer Newspaper beginning 1981 before joining forces to establish The Inquirer Newspaper in 1991, died in Monrovia on Wednesday, 14th September, after a period of illness.

The Julius Kanubah for PUL President Strategic Committee termed the death of journalist Wesseh as a significant blow to the journalism, media and communication community of Liberia.

“For over four decades, journalist Phillip Wesseh has stood tall as a moral voice in the protection, defense, and strengthening of journalists’ rights but also the fight for and the consolidation of democracy in Liberia,” said the Julius Kanubah for PUL President Strategic Committee.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, 14th September, a delegation – on behalf of the journalism, media and communication community in support of Julius Kanubah for PUL President – visited the home of journalist Wesseh in Duport Road, Paynesville, to sympathize with his family.

During the visit, our leader Julius Kanubah joined PUL President Charles Coffey and veteran journalist Aaron Kollie of Infinitive Corporation to console the Wesseh family and reflect on the incredible life, journalism and media practices of Phillip Wesseh.

“As journalists seeking to provide quality and impactful leadership at the Press Union of Liberia, the Julius Kanubah Strategic Committee hereby pledges to continue the fine legacy of journalist Wesseh by working towards bringing credibility, integrity and dignity to the PUL and the journalism and media community of Liberia.”
