Pres. Sirleaf Visits Late VP Moniba’s Family Ahead Of Reburial

MONROVIA, December 21 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has visited the family of the late Vice President Dr. Harry Fumba Moniba to console them ahead of his reburial expected to take place in Bolahun Clan, Kolahun District, Lofa County.

According to an Executive Mansion release, the Liberian leader was accompanied by the Minister of State for Presidential Affairs, Ambassador Sylvester Grisgby, and Cllr. Jonathan Fonati Koffa, Minister of State Without Portfolio, among others.

At the home of the late Liberian Vice President, President Sirleaf was met upon arrival by the widow, Madam Minitta Moniba, and children, including Dr. Clarence Moniba, who later took her on a tour of the Moniba premises.

President Sirleaf toured the late Vice President’s private museum and entire residence, as well as interacted with his children, grand and great-grand children, traditional dancers, and community members who turned out to celebrate the life and legacy of the late Vice President Moniba.

Speaking to the media following the Liberian leader’s visit, Dr. Clarence Moniba,  son of the deceased and the Head of President Delivery Unit (PDU), said the reburial ceremony planned by family members was meant to celebrate the life their father lived to encourage others to emulate his legacy.

Dr. Moniba said since the death of his father in 2004 following a tragic motor accident in the United States of America, his remains was brought to Liberia and temporarily buried at his home in Paynesville.

But he said family members have always opted to honor the late Vice President’s “will” of being buried in his hometown – Bolahun Clan in Kolahun District, Lofa County.

Dr. Moniba thanked President Sirleaf for the visit to Moniba family and for honoring his father with her presence accompanied by senior government officials.

Meanwhile, the reburial ceremony is expected to be the second of such in five years, following the reburial of Dr. Edward Beyan Kesselly, founding and former first partisan of the ruing Unity Party held on Saturday, April 29, 2011 in Nyamaamdu Town in Quardu Gboni District of Lofa County.

The late Dr. Kesselly’s reburial brought together more than 10,000 people to celebrate his life and legacy.
