Gov’t Lends Approbation to Violence – Says OPRM Leader Kpadeh

By Julius T. Jaesen, II

The avant-garde leader of the One People Revolutionary Movement, Robert Moncio Wilmot Decontee Yeani Kpadeh has condemned the alarming wave of violence in Liberia allegedly carried out by people believed to be supporters of President George Weah. Speaking on the Kool FM radio on Wednesday, August 11, 2020, Mr Kpadeh blamed the government for the incidence of violence and attacks on the lives of prominent Liberians with alternative persuasions on national issues in the country. He mentioned attacks on the lives of Telia Urey, Yekeh Kolubah and lastly Senator Darius Dillon by thuggish bandits and hoodlums of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change. When quizzed on Weah’s rejection of violence cautioning his supporters to refrain violence, Mr Kpadeh termed that statement on the part of the President as a mere political bluff and showmanship as cover out for the embarrassing shame it has brought against the government.

It can be recalled that on Sunday, August 9, 2020, Darius Dillon who had gone to honour a program in Clara Town, District 14, Montserrado was attacked by stones throwing from supporters of the President – something which provoked the supporters of Dillon to reply to the attack against Dillon by Weah’s hooligans. It is no surprise to see CDC’s thugs going after people only because they hold strong views against the government. CDC since its birth as a political party has been noted for threading in a violent act. Egg heads in the CDC had refused during the 12 years of the regime of Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf to encourage young people in the party to pursue education over violence and hooliganism. They had instead recruited young people in the party into Sabu and boy scout units to lead attacks on people whose politicking differs with theirs.
