SAM JACKSON ALLEGES SENATOR EDWIN SNOWE PROMISED HIM US$10K AS HUSH MONEY IN “ILLEGAL WESTERN CLUSTER DEAL”

Date:

Renowned Liberian economist and Politician, Mr. Sam P. Jackson has revealed that Bomi County Senator Edwin Melvin Snowe Jr., has disclosed that Senator Edwin Snowe Jr., had promised him US$10K as hush money to stay cool on the Western Cluster deal.

In a letter published on his Facebook page, Jackson told Snowe: “You blocked me on WhatsApp so I am constrained to publish this letter. This is a matter two adults could’ve solved as men. But you are an overgrown child who did not mature enough and thrusted yourself into leadership roles that you are not prepared for. “Jackson added: “On or about May 27 in 2022 you called me promising me 10k as hush money to allow you and your cartel to truck iron ore from Bomi to the Freeport of Monrovia.

“If I just kept quiet. I sent you a memo to forward to your friends at Vedanta the Multi-billion dollar Indian Iron ore company. They had revenues of 26 billion last year with hundreds of billions in assets. look at the price of their shares on the stock market.”

Mr. Sam Jackson indicated:,”I sent you the following message to your inbox this morning but you had already blocked me. Since you want a public spectacle I will give you one.”

Sam’s Message

Good morning Edwin. Unlike you, I don’t keep grudge. I have little interest in power or money. If I did none of you would come close to me. You dropped out of college in the US in 2003 to take the position of MD at LPRC. That’s your road to wealth, fame and political power.

My friendly advice to you. You are on the defensive in the Western Cluster. This could destroy you politically and expose you to criminal liabilities even if as you claim did nothing wrong. Trucking iron ore through populated areas is a grave risk. Environmentally. Socially. The long-term consequences are mostly unknown. You could be 70 years old and be exposed since you were in the firefront.

Go back to the memo I sent you on May 27. My education is my biggest asset, I was trying to help you all but you as always want a quick deal. Your people don’t need a Bassa man like me to tell them about the dangers and associated risks. That young man held his own. I know Bomi citizens are gearing to take this to higher levels. Global Witness. The US Embassy is watching.

If you think I am your enemy you are dead wrong. This trucking of ores if not fixed with the appropriate mitigation measures could cost us Bomi, Cape Mount, and Gbarpolu in the elections.

God bless. You now know I didn’t give Stanton any questions as you claim on December 30. I saw him trying to help you last night. He is a good guy in a difficult space.”
