…Says Chief Zanzan Kawor
Writes N. Dweh Nimley
Chief Zanzan Kawor, Chairman of the National Council of Chiefs and Elders of Liberia says the country is unstable due to the current political crisis.
At a news conference held Wednesday in Monrovia, Chief Kawor used the term ‘Liberia is shaking’ to describe the current crisis as a result of the October 10, 2017 elections.
He said the elders’ council of the country has heard noise in some quarters regarding the elections and it was important that they intervene to find amicable solution to the problem. He explained that elections during 19th century were peaceful, as citizen stood in queues behind the leaders to vote.
“We have been hearing some noise, what is wrong, we need to talk about this” Chief Kawor noted.
He expressed the need for the council to meet the president, chief justice and players in the elections to discuss the issue and to have it resolved. He thanked LP, UP, ANC and ALP for choosing the court instead of the bushes to settle their grievances.
The Liberia’s traditional chairman stated that the current political crisis cannot be left with players alone to settle, but instead the elders of the country.
