MONROVIA, January 23 (LINA) - The National Secretary General of the Movement to Support Boakai for the 2017 Presidential Election, Robert Kpadeh, has termed a recent act by members of the Coalition For Democratic Change (CDC) during their convention as “gangsterism”.
Speaking on ELBC radio Monday, Kpadeh said it was sad for the country to see young people from the CDC carrying caskets on their shoulders in the streets of Monrovia claiming they were those of the president and vice president.
Recently, members of the CDC, during their convention, held a parade at which time they carried two caskets on their heads which they described as those of the president and vice president.
Kpadeh described this act of the CDC as an act of “gangsterism,” noting that it is a symbolic outlook of how Liberia will look when the party assumes leadership of the country.
He said it is despicable for the leaders of the CDC to sanction young people to carry out such act against a sitting president and vice president.
Kpadeh stressed that this act on the part of the CDC shows the quality of leaders governing the party and that it brings into question their moral sensitivity and leadership judgment.
