Economic Freedom Fighters of Liberia Suspends Representative Candidate Emmanuel Gonotee of District # 14, Monsterrado County for Violating Party Doctrine.

August 17, 2023. Monrovia, Liberia – The Economic Freedom Fighters of Liberia (EFFL) has announced the indefinite suspension of Representative Candidate Emmanuel Gonotee of Montserrado County Electoral District #14. This decision comes as a direct result of Gonotee’s involvement in acts that undermine the fundamental principles and values of the party.

In a press release issued today, EFFL declared that Gonotee’s membership suspension would be effective immediately. The party warns all members and the general public to refrain from engaging in any business dealings with Gonotee in the name of the EFFL. Individuals who fail to adhere to this caution do so at their own risk, the party emphasized.

The EFFL firmly reiterates its unwavering commitment to its mission of ensuring that President George Weah becomes a one-term president. To this end, the party stands firmly behind the Rescue Mission team, led by Ambassador Joseph Nyumah Boakai, as its ally in this pursuit. The EFFL calls upon its members, known as “Fighters,” to stay dedicated and supportive of this cause.

Signed by CMSR. Julu Mah Johnson, Jr., the National Secretary General of the EFFL, and approved by CMSR. Steven Saah Kolubah, the National Chairman of the EFFL, the press release underscores Gonotee’s suspension being a consequence of his consistent support for the ruling establishment, the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC). As such, Gonotee’s actions blatantly contradict the true principles and standards of the EFFL.

The Economic Freedom Fighters of Liberia, formed in 2019, is a progressive political party that advocates for economic inclusivity, social justice, and the empowerment of the country’s marginalized communities. The EFFL aims to address systemic inequalities and champion the rights of Liberians through grassroots activism and political engagement.

Gonotee’s suspension serves as a clear message from the EFFL to all party members and affiliates that adherence to the party’s doctrine and principles is of utmost importance. The party encourages its members to remain steadfast in their commitment to driving political change and creating a more equitable society.

August 17, 2023.  Lofa – FOYA Police Station is currently investigating an alleged case of criminal mischief that occurred on Monday, August 14, 2023. Thomas F. Fallah, a resident of AG Quarter, reported that party flyers belonging to their political group were unlawfully removed from a wall where they had been placed.

The alleged perpetrators, identified as Alexander Bundoo from Sulorba Town and Anthony F. Benahoe from Lorloe Town, both of Kissi tribe, have been implicated in the incident.

According police investigation, Anthony F. Benahoe recounted that he was passing by after collecting empty bags from his cool base when he was informed by a certain John Fayiah that their party flyers had been torn down. Benahoe confronted John about who was responsible, but John did not point out the individual responsible for the act. Benahoe admitted to removing another party’s flyers from the ground without making a complaint.

In a separate confrontation, Alexander Bundoo encountered Fatu Fornina, who operates a palm wine selling place in the area. Bundoo noticed Fornina wearing a CDC chain and questioned her about her political affiliation. Fornina explained that she accepts any political party’s flyers in her business place. However, during their conversation, Bundoo allegedly took CDC flyers from Fornina’s wall, tore them off, and even stepped on some of them. When Fornina questioned his actions, Bundoo reportedly insulted her.

Following the investigation, both Alexander Bundoo and Anthony F. Benahoe have been forwarded to the Foya Magisterial Court for trial.

In another related incident, on August 17, 2023, at approximately 10 pm, a group of supporters led by Alieu A. Kamara, the secretary general of the youth wing of the Friends of Sekou B. Korleh, were seen removing a campaign banner belonging to candidate Hon. Sekou B. Korleh of District #4 in Lofa County. The banner had been turned out by an unknown individual.

It has been noted by concerned citizens that there is an escalating rivalry between supporters of Hon. Sekou B. Korleh and Hon. Mariyamu B. Fofana, both running as representative candidates for District 4. Additionally, supporters of Hon. Thomas P. Fallah and Hon. Francis Nyumaline of Foya District have been engaging in bitter political exchanges. Authorities are being urged to intervene and caution the parties involved to refrain from any form of election violence to maintain peace in the county.
