CITIZENS OF SINOE County have begun mending fences for peace and reconciliation following the recent incarceration of the county’s Superintendent, J. Milton Teahjay.
RECENTLY, SINOE COUNTY Senator, Joseph Nagbe raised serious concern that the incarceration of Supt. Teahjay has created a deep split among the county’s Legislative caucus and the citizens with a report of hullabaloo, thus contributing to a tribal split among the Kru ethnic group on one hand and the Sapo on the other side.
SUPT. TEAHJAY WAS charged with contempt for impeding legislative function after he allegedly embarrassed Sinoe County District #3 Representative, Matthew Zarzar in the county.
BUT IN AN interview yesterday, Rev. Joe Cheytee Jarwleh, Founder/Executive Director for the Movement for Reconciliation and Reunification of Sinoe County said there is no split amongst Sinoeans as being speculated in the media.
REV. JARWLEH SAID what is ongoing in the county is considered as mixed reaction on the incarceration of Supt. Teahjay. He said some of the citizens feel that the jailing of the county’s Superintendent has tainted the image of Sinoe while some feel otherwise.
WE SUPPORT THE ongoing peace initiative being embarked upon by the Movement for Reconciliation and Reunification of Sinoe County and the citizens themselves for their efforts in this direction.
THE INCARCERATION OF Supt. Teahjay must not bring any division among the people of Sinoe being cognizant of the fact that they are one people with one destiny. We believe that the decision to send Mr. Teahjay to jail was that of the entire House of Representative and as such, no one should blame another person or a particular group for being responsible for the unfortunate situation.
LET THE CITIZENS along with their leaders including the county’s legislative caucus work together for the attainment of lasting peace and genuine reconciliation so as to contribute to the growth and development of their county.
WE AGAIN APPEAL to the people of Sinoe not to do anything that will cause them to revert to the ugly past which devastated every fabric of our country.
LET US ALL work together for peace and national healing because without peace, there can be no reconciliation. That is why we are in full support of the peace initiative being embarked upon by the Movement for Reconciliation and Reunification of Sinoe County.
