Zoe Pennue Joins Senatorial Race

By Alva Mulbah Wolokolie

After several months of contemplating as to whether he would remain a Representative or not, Grand Gedeh County District #1 Representative Zoe Emmanuel Pennue, has finally taken the cat out of the bag that he stands ready and prepared to contest the 2014 senatorial elections in Grand Gedeh County.

Zoe E. Pennue is currently a Representative from Grand Gedeh at the 53rd National Legislature. This is his second term serving as lawmaker for that county. He won in 2005 for the first time as an independent candidate and won again in 2011.

Asked what prompted his decision, Pennue told reporters yesterday at his residence that several persons from the county and Grand Gedeians in Monrovia have repeatedly encouraged and petitioned him to represent them at the Liberian Senate.

“This decision has been on my mind for some time after citizens from the county approached me to join the race in 2014. Today, I call you the press so that you can tell the world that I am contesting the senatorial seat for Grand Gedeh in the 2014 elections. I am not frighten by any side comments as whether I can make it or not,” Rep. Pennue asserted.

Now, it is expected that lawmaker Pennue will join the battle with incumbent Senior Senator Isaac Nyenabo, CDC Chair George Solo, former Minister for Presidential Affairs Charles Brezze among others that have thrown their hats in the race too.
