‘KEMAYAH WILL ACCOUNT FOR HIS ACTIONS’ – FOREIGN MINISTER’S SEXUAL HARASSMENT ACCUSER, WYNEE SAYS

Date:

MONROVIA – The lady pointing an accusing finger at Liberia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, D. Maxwell Kemayah, for allegedly harassing her sexually, Madam Wynee Cummings Wilson, has asserted that he will account for his actions against her.

Wilson stated Wednesday that no matter what Kemayah throws her way, he will account for his actions either willingly or he will be forced to do so through the appropriate laws.

In September 2020, Wilson filed a complaint of sexual harassment against Kemayah, alleging that he sexually harassed her when he served as Liberia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, at the time she worked there as a “local staff.”

On Monday, 6 November 2023, Wilson was arrested by officers of the New York Police Department at the Permanent Mission of Liberia to the UN, after she resisted attempts by authorities there, who were reportedly acting upon the orders of Foreign Minister Kemayah to prevent her entry into the office at the Mission.

She’s of the belief that the Monday incident at the Mission was a continuation of what she termed the pattern of harassment, intimidations, retaliations, and retributions by Minister Kemayah to silence her from speaking out.

“Let the word go forth that Minister Kemayah cannot break my spirit to fight for justice. No matter what Minister Kemayah throws my way, he will account for his actions either willingly or he will be forced to through the appropriate laws,” Wilson indicated.

She refuted assertions from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Liberia that she’s not an employee of Liberia’s Permanent Mission to the UN.

In a statement released to the press on Wednesday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that Wilson was just an “apprentice” and was never an employee of the country’s Permanent Mission to the UN, contrary to claims from her that she’s a staff at the Mission in New York, the United States of America.

But Wilson has since replied the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, retorting that assertions from the Ministry are all a diabolical lie intended to mislead the public from Minister Kemayah, whom she accused three years ago of sexually harassing her.

“For the record, I am not an “apprentice”! My bank account reflecting salary payments to me does not carry such title,” Madam Wilson refuted claims made by the Foreign Ministry that she was never an employee of Liberia’s Permanent Mission to the UN, but was rather accepted as an “apprentice”.

She claims Kemayah has no morals, no principles, and no values, maintaining that the Foreign Affairs Ministry’s assertions made public Wednesday are deliberate distortions that represent a pattern of harassment, intimidations, retaliations, and retributions by the Minister of Foreign Affairs since she reported him for sexual harassment to the Office of Foreign Missions at the United States Department of State in September 2020.
