The body of Montserrado County District#9 Representative Munah Pelham-Youngblood has arrived in the country from Ghana, where she died last week.
Family members, government officials, and scores of Liberians grieved and reflected about the late lawmaker at the Robert International Airport (RIA) when her corpse arrived.
The late Rep. Pelham-Youngblood died in Accra, Ghana on Wednesday, July 8, after a protracted illness.
Paying homage to the fallen lawmaker, President George Weah described her as a “SHERO” and a loyal and committed partisan.
President Weah said: “You have fought a good fight, you will forever remain in my heart, you are the SHERO of all Shero, you are Munah Pelham, I salute you, in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, rest in peace.”
President Weah said the late lawmaker was amongst the first group of young people who organized and championed the Congress for Democratic Change party’s ideology.
He chanted some of the party’s famous slogan, shaking his right hand with fist up in the air “Gbayahn… Gbayahn… Representative Gbayahn… the first and youngest female to join the revolution, that peaceful revolution, you are now going to rest, we will forever remember you in the history of the change that brought us here.”
The mother of the late representative was in tears and shouted “My people my boss lady, my people my honorable, oh, oh,” as she cried profusely.
The corpse of the late lawmaker will be deposited at the St. Moses Funeral home pending funeral arrangements.
