- says they should be arrested and prosecuted for the ’26’ saga.
The Liberian leader, President George Manneh Weah, who is the standard bearer and the founding father of Congress for Democratic Change (CDC), has addressed the nation on the July 26th violence saga, denouncing CDC-COP.
“I also want to stress, as the founding father of the Congress for Democratic Change, now the Coalition for Democratic Change, that we do not have any CDC-COP within our organization,” the President said.
The President stressed that in all his public engagements he has emphasized the need to maintain the hard-earned peace that we now enjoy, stating that it was the cause for which he made a personal sacrifice as an Ambassador of peace.
“So if you claim to love me or follow my political ideology, you can not do so with violence.”
The President said anyone or group that has his image on a banner in support of him and his government has to be peaceful, respectful, and tolerant.
“You cannot support a man of peace by being violent,” he said.
“When you come to join us, you become a CDC partisan of peace, democracy, and development.”
The President therefore mandated the Ministry of Justice and the entire national security apparatus to immediately arrest all those involved in the violent incident on July 26, 2022 and ensure that they face the full weight of the law.
“I have also instructed the Minister of Health to ensure that all those who sustained injuries during the violent attack be given the best medical treatment at the expense of the government”, the Liberia leader said.
The Liberian leader said despite our political differences, we are one nation, one people united under God’s command.
He expressed heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all Liberians and friends of Liberia alike, for the beautiful celebration of the country’s 175th Independence Day on July 26, 2022.
