Liberia’s Culture Ambassador Juli Endee has condemned, in the strongest term and described as unacceptable, Monday’s hit-and-run accident at the Unity Party’s Headquarters on Broad Street.

An unmarked vehicle, with a lone driver, reportedly ran into jubilant supporters of the Unity Party who had gathered to celebrate Ambassador Joseph Boakai being declared winner of the Presidential run-off election Monday evening.

In a statement Tuesday, Ambassador Endee expressed empathy with the Unity Party for such unfortunate incident and called for a swift police investigation into the matter.

Ambassador Endee said  if confirmed that the incident was done on purpose, the suspect should be made to face the full weight of the law.

She added such incident could cast a dark cloud over Liberia at a time when the country is being celebrated internationally for upholding the tenants of democracy.

The Liberia Crusaders for Peace Executive Director then expressed sadness over the death of some UP supporters and offered prayers for the injured who are currently receiving treatment in hospital.

Ambassador Endee reiterated her stance that no human life should be lost because of elections, calling on the security to ensure that the victims and the injured get justice.

She sent out a condolence message to  families of those confirmed dead from the incident and prayed that God Almighty grants them a peaceful repose of their souls.

Meanwhile the Liberian Culture Ambassador is calling on all Liberians to sustain the 20 years of uninterrupted peace the country has enjoyed since the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) in Accra, Ghana on August 18,  2003.

At the same time, the Liberia Crusaders for Peace says it haslearned with sorrow and deep sadness, the death of former United States First Lady Rosalynn Carter.

The LCP extends deepest condolences to the people of the United States of America, President Jimmy Carter and the entire Carter family for the irreparable loss sustained.

The LCP believes Madam Carter’s remarkable legacy of grace, compassion, and unwavering strength has left an indelible mark on the hearts of many, serving as a guiding light in times of adversity. 

According to the Carter Center, Rosalynn Carter, who as first lady worked tirelessly on behalf of mental health reform and professionalized the role of the president’s spouse, died Sunday, November 19, at the age of 96.

The Carter Center, which her husband Jimmy Carter established after leaving office, has been a key partner to the LCP and other civil society groups, helping to improve lives in Liberia by resolving conflicts, advancing democracy and preventing diseases.

Rosalynn Carter passed away peacefully with family by her side at her home in Plains, Georgia, the United States.

The Liberia Crusaders for Peace will forever be grateful to God for the Carter Center’s support to Peace and democracy.
