Scores of Nimba Citizens in Montserrado County Tuesday August 28, 2018 staged a peaceful protest terming the House of Representatives Impeachment proceeding hanging over their kinsman Associate Justice Kabineh Jan’eh as “Legally Defective”.
According to their spokesman Lawrence Suah the current political and or legal drive at the House of Representatives led by two ruling party lawmakers Acarous Gray and Thomas Fallah is unhealthy for the Country’s peace process.
He said the unprovoked, unwarranted and undeserved attack on Associate Justice Ja’neh is unacceptable.
The group comprising citizens from Nimba County mainly Women, Elders, Students and Young people held placards with different inscriptions: Nimba for Peace, Respect the Supreme Court, Stop the impeachment process, Nimba Citizens are united for Kabineh Ja’neh, Liberia is all we have among others.
Presenting the petition statement to some members of the House Of Representatives especially those hailing from Nimba County the head of the protesters Lawrence Suah indicated that gone are the days where the House of Representatives will dictate and or manipulate the workings including the functions of the Supreme Court.
He said the time has come for the supreme Court to be fully independent, impartial and very strong void of political coercion or intimidation.
Political pundits have thus far observed that instead of constitutional issues,the current debate appears to be sending a different message as tribal and or religions implications are now dominating the impeachment saga.
Unlike the Sable Mining case which saw Alex Tyler forcefully leaving his position as Speaker ,Nimbians are resolved not to allow similar situation of ousting government officials out of office in their words illegally to repeat itself.
Meanwhile the House through its Speaker Dr. Bhofal Chambers is on record for saying that they are proceeding constitutionally right and are unbinding in their quest to ensure that the right thing is done though they recently failed to honor an invite from the Supreme Court on the matter.
