Elected president of Liberia since December 26, 2017, the President and former football player, George Weah, struggles to contain this wave of protests by the people and training constantly opposition parties who condemn the country’s degrading economic situation.
Liberian senators are increasingly worried about the upsurge of political violence. They are already thinking about the last civil war that killed more than 250,000 people in a country where the global population is estimated at 4 million.
This Saturday, August 17, 2019, the opposition candidate in a by-election, Tellia Urey, was the victim of projectile throwing in the suburbs of the capital Monrovia, in the building where she was meeting.
She claims that one of the attackers tried to stab her. That’s why she firmly believes it’s an assassination attempt.
On Tuesday, August 20, 2019, senators were offended by the situation and asked the authorities to take the necessary measures to punish the perpetrators.
