Barely 24 hours after her dismissal from government, the Congress For Democratic Change has with immediate effect expelled Montserrado County Senatorial hopeful Jemama Wolokollie from the party.
The expulsion of Madam Wolokollie, according to the party comes after an early action of suspension for fraud extortion, corruption and her role played in a fake loan scheme.
According to a released issued by the National Executive Committee of the on July 1, 2020, Madam Wolokollie was found guilty after an investigation into allegations levelled against her.
The statement indicated that with the lingering immoral disciplines, madam Wolokollie “doesn’t have the moral pedigree to maintain membership with the CDC.”
The party said it will not tolerate unwholesome actions or utterences that will damage the integrity of the ruling establishment.
However, the party has extolled president George Weah for dismissing expelled partisan Wolokollie.
The CDC described president Weah’s decision as timely and an important step to discouraging improper conduct.
President Weah took the decision to sack the former Deputy Commerce Minister for actions incompatible to her status as a senior Government official.
In reaction, Madam Wolokollie claimed her dismissal was due to her stance exposing the wrongs in the ruling coalition.
She reacted via a Facebook post noting “if by expressing my views about the wrongs within my our party, the CONGRESS FOR DEMOCRATIC CHANGE has warranted my dismissal then so be it. I have no regret.”
Of recent Madam Wolokollie has been vocal calling for the removal of Mr. Mulbah Morlu as chairman of coalition for democratic change
According to her, Mr. Morlu who spoke ills of the President does not deserve to be the chairman of the CDC.
She accused the party chairman and the Mayor of Monrovia of tribalism, especially amid the pending senatorial election.
She further accused Rep. Thomas Fallah who appears to be the forerunner in the CDC for the slot to contest the senatorial seat for Montserrado County of distributing motorcycles in the county as part of a scheme to deceive the poor people of the county.
Madam Wolokollie declared her intention to contest the senatorial seat for Montserrado County a fortnight ago, claiming she got the blessing of the party’s chairman to contest.
Madam Wolokollie preferred to be a CDCian with a difference and has a better vision for the county.
In another interview on SKY FM in Monrovia, Madam Wolokollie expressed her disappointment in the manner in which the party has been conducting primaries, claiming that it has often been fraudulent.
