-Min. McGill Responds to Allegation of Poisoning Mabutu Nyenpan
By Reuben Sei Waylaun
At long last, the Minister of State for Presidential Affairs, Nathaniel McGill has responded to allegations that he and some ‘very close associates’ of President George Weah reportedly poisoned the late Public Works Minister, Mabutu Vlah Nyenpan.
Responding to such allegations Monday November 16, 2020 at his residence, Minister McGill in an interview monitored on ELBC said he has nothing to do with the death of the Works Minister, saying “God will fight my battle.”
It can be recalled the late Public Works Minister fell off on September 3, 2020 shortly after reportedly meeting with senior officials of government at his office. Minister Nyenpan went into coma before doctors and medical experts at the John F. Kennedy Medical Center in Monrovia managed to stabilize him after which he was flown to Ghana for further treatment.
It was later established that he died as a result of a ruptured brain aneurysms. According to research, of those who survived, about 665 suffer some permanent neurological deficit. Approximately 15% of people with a ruptured aneurysm die before reaching the hospital. He died nearly two months later.
However, since the death of the ‘industrious’ Minister, accusing fingers had been pointing deep into the inner circle of President George Weah with some people reportedly calling the name of the Minister of State for President Affairs, Nathaniel McGill.
But addressing reporters Monday November 16, 2020, Minister McGill said the God of Minister Nyenpan is still alive and will ensure vengeance if his death was masterminded by some people.
“I am a Christian and an African. If somebody poisoned Mabutu, his God is there. If they are lying on us, our God is also there,” McGill said.
Minister McGill further said “Truth never hide, the truth will come out. There are people who believe that we are obstacles to their success. Some people believe they can get to the president, but they think I am the obstacle, so, the way they do it is, let’s get rid of McGill and they can malign McGill character and destroy him by saying all kinds of things.”
“That God get me. The job I have was given to me by God. So, if people get up and lie and try to destroy me, only God can fight my battle. Some Liberians are very wicked.”
The late Minister Mabutu Nyenpan, 54 was a former Senator from Sinoe County and appointed by President Weah in February 2018 and confirmed by the Senate on February 15, 2018, as Minister of Public Works.
