Acarous Gray Booed

By Garmonyou Wilson

Residents of Montserrado County District #8 in the Bassa Community yesterday booed its Representative Acarious Gray for what they described as his failure to identify with the community since his ascendency to the Legislature.

Rep. Gray who attended an outdoor problem that was also attended by the President of Liberia, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, General Services Agency (GSA) Head, Mary Broh, Montserrado Senior Senator Joyce Sumo, Finance Minister, Armara Konneh and a host of other government officials was demeaned as he tried to give welcoming remarks amidst the calls from the community to sit down.Services Agency (GSA) Head, Mary Broh, Montserrado Senior Senator Joyce Sumo, Finance Minister, Armara Konneh and a host of other government officials was demeaned as he tried to give welcoming remarks amidst the calls from the community to sit down.Joyce Sumo, Finance Minister, Armara Konneh and a host of other government officials was demeaned as he tried to give welcoming remarks amidst the calls from the community to sit down.

After his unwelcomed remarks the District #8 Representative was seen taking his assigned sit next to the President at which time the President gave the young Representative a look of sorrow for the obvious disdain that his constituency gave him.

Residents from the Bassa Community could be heard screaming at the young politician that he has only visited the community because the President was there which one resident described to this paper as shameful and undeserving of a second term as a representative of the community.

After the program which kicked off the government’s rehabilitation of 22 public latrines in major communities throughout Monrovia, while walking back to his vehicle, residents of the community could be heard telling Rep. Gray to return government’s car because he was not fit to ‘eat free money’.

For several minutes residents of the community besieged the Representative’s car preventing him from entering while chanting several anti-Gray slogans, such as “Get out of here; give us our money back.”

The angry residents did however give the District #8 Representative a chance to speak, but with teary eyes and the uncontrolled objection from Bassa Community residents, Representative Gray was inaudible.

Rep. Gray however did manage to leave the scene with hundreds of Bassa Community residents chasing his car screaming and yelling that he (Gray) is not an appropriate representation of them and that he should not rest at his Capitol Building office because the time would come that he would be voted out by the Bassa Community and other communities in the District that see him as a 419 lawmaker who has only come to eat government’s money and forget the very people that put him where he is today.
