The Executive Committee, Zonal Heads, Women League, Youth League as well as the entire membership of District#16 Branch of the Congress for Democratic Change have disassociated themselves from what they call the irrational and illegal decision to expel their District#16 Representative, Edward S. Forh from the party.
In a release, the CDCians said, “We also want to add here that the allegation by Mulbah Morlu and cohorts that our District Coordinator, Partisan Sarteh A. Sarteh had signed the so-called committee report is a blatant lie and that Mr. Sarteh herewith disassociates himself from the shameful actions of Mulbah Morlu and cohorts.”
“The District wishes to make it clear that if the Government of Liberia has any issues with Forh, there are laid-down structures and laws to pursue. But for Mr. Morlu and cohorts to act on the basis of rumors and calculated attempts of enemies to our beloved Representative to destroy him politically, is divisive and not in the interest of the party at this time. This will not work,” they added.
According to the CDCians, when plans were being hatched for what they termed as shameful and diabolical act against a founding and prominent member of the party and district, they informed the party National Executives through Secretary-General Nathaniel McGill of their concern and opposition to use the CDC to fight other people to battle against Forh.
“He informed us that this was not the case and that CDC was not in the business of witch-hunting. Unfortunately, the present action looks like witch-hunting and a deliberate attempt to tarnish the character of our Representative,” they said.
The CDCians said that continuous expulsion of partisans of the CDC is counterproductive to the growth and success of any institution; and Mulbah K. Morlu and his cohorts should desist from orchestrating such uncalculated and illegal expulsions of members.
They called on the Executive Committee to re-visit what they call illegal activities of Mr. Morlu and cohorts and have Forh re-instated so as to bring unity and stability to the party.
