UNITY PARTY SUPPORTERS PROTEST AT PRESIDENT BOAKAI’S RESIDENCE OVER KEY APPOINTMENTS

Date:

MONROVIA – In an unexpected turn of events, a group of Unity Party (UP) supporters gathered outside the residence of President Joseph Nyuma Boakai in Paynesville to express their dissatisfaction with the alleged lack of key party appointments. The protesters highlighted the absence of UP’s National Chairman, Rev. Luther Tarpeh, from the president’s appointments.

The demonstration, which began in the early morning hours, saw many UP supporters waving party flags and demanding transparency and inclusivity within the party’s decision-making process. Chants of “We want Tarpeh!” and “Unity Party deserves representation!” echoed through the usually quiet neighborhood, said our sources who were on the scene.

Rev. Luther Tarpeh is a prominent figure within the Unity Party. He is chairman of the now ruling party and has been a long-standing advocate for the party’s principles and policies. His absence from key appointments has raised concerns among party loyalists, who believe his exclusion undermines the party’s unity and dilutes its influence within the government.

As the protest continued, local authorities maintained a peaceful presence, ensuring that the demonstration did not escalate into violence. The police were seen facilitating dialogue between party representatives and the protesters, aiming to find a resolution that would address the concerns raised.

The protest at President Boakai’s residence highlights the growing tension within the Unity Party over the alleged exclusion of key party officials from important appointments. As the government continues to navigate the complexities of governance, it remains to be seen how President Boakai will address the concerns of his supporters and ensure the party’s unity moving forward.
