The grounds of the Liberian Legislature was a scene of drama when some youth believed to be supporters of Rep. Thomas P. Fallah were forcefully thrown out of the grounds of the Capitol Building on Thursday September 3, 2020 by aggrieved workers.
The Montserrado County Senatorial hopeful is the Chairman of the House of Representatives’ Committee on Ways, Means, Finance and Development Planning and is the current ‘political darling boy’ of the governing Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC).
According to our Political Affairs Correspondent on the grounds of the Political Hub, the supporters have gone to endorse the Senatorial bid of Rep. Fallah when they met a resistance from the workers.
Our Correspondent said the workers were heard calling Rep. Thomas Fallah a ‘criminal’ who has stolen the Liberian dollars component of their salary.
One of the spokespersons of the disenchanted workers, Charles Brown said “We asked them out of here because we think endorsing Thomas Fallah on the grounds of the Capitol Building is like endorsing satan in a Church.”
He indicated that the Lawmakers’ actions against them is grave adding “When we endorse him, we have no argument. It means that we are telling the world that we are satisfied with the treatment.”
The workers of the Capitol Building have been protesting recently against members of the Liberian Legislature over the alleged cut of their salary for a period of one year.
As it is now, the petitioners have left the grounds of the Capitol Building and are expected to return anytime some other days; while the workers have said they will remain posted and await their return.
