MONROVIA-Yesterday, women of Liberia gathered on the grounds of the Liberian Legislature to petition members of the Legislature to intervene in the ongoing case involving the attack at the home of former Chief Justice, Gloria Musu Scott.
The women who were in predominantly black clothing prostrated themselves on the grounds of the Capitol Building while others were seen crying out loud for justice for the Scotts.
They presented their petition to members of that august body which was received by Grand Bassa Senator, Nyongblee Kangar-Lawrence on behalf of the first branch of the government of Liberia.
One person who has welcomed the action of women is former Liberian President, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
In her tweet yesterday (March 2, 2023), former President Sirleaf said, “ Bravo to the organizers of the match against injustice and violence and to all Liberian women and men who took part.”
In the tweet, former President Sirleaf said if she were in Liberia at the time the gathering was convened, she would have participated.
She posted a video of the women seated on the ground in front of the Capitol Building in Monrovia, Liberia.
Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is Liberia’s immediate past president.
