President George Weah on Tuesday led an array of government officials to the rotunda of the Capitol Building to sign the book of condolence for fallen Montserrado County Representative Munah Pelham-Youngblood.
Representative Pelham-Youngblood died in Accra, Ghana on Wednesday, July 8, after a protracted illness.
Following her death, the Liberian leader described the late lawmaker as one of the matriarchs of the Coalition for Democratic Change who campaigned vigorously to ensure the Coalition won the 2017 general and presidential elections.
President Weah told the nation that the deceased lawmaker was a pillar of the CDC and a great stateswoman whose active leadership role at the National Legislature contributed enormously to nurturing the country’s democracy.
She was also a strong advocate for women leadership and empowerment, some of her fellow Lawmakers described her.
