How can we “stand together” when you are viciously witch-hunting us and could possibly subvert us if fate presented you the opportunity? How can we “stand together” when you are sadistically pursuing Patrick Honnah
tooth and nail and hell-bent on not to grant his Punch F.M. operational rights or clearance despite the fact that the station has met all legal requirements? How can we “stand together” when you and your bunch are breathing fresh air but gruesomely kneeling on our neck and suffocating us to death?
How can we “stand together” when you and your cronies have cruelly BLACKLISTED us as “enemies of the State” and have warned people in the Private Sector not to dare do business with us? For if they did so, the consequences of doing so will be unimaginably daring. If this is not vicious hatred, I know no other way to frame it.
How can we “stand together” when you are looting our country on a colossal scale and amassing wealth and plunging us in the pit of poverty and misery? How can we “stand together” when you and your henchmen openly declared that those of us who politically disagree with you and didn’t support your presidential bid “will suffer for 12 years” and we see you firmly ensuring that such wicked plan works?
May I close with these few lines of admonishment and caution: No power is PERMANENT. Every long journey has an END. After the dread of the night, the day DAWNS. We have seen Kings, rulers, presidents, powerful men faltered and fell on their foreheads. We have seen power slipped away from their hands.
We have seen regimes crushed down and vanished away. We have seen different eras (good and bad) faded away. We have seen paradigms shifted. We have seen repressive monsters bowed in submission to the will of the people. Mr. George Weah and henchmen are no exception. Their fate is coming upon them. We will see George Weah without power. We will see Weah face his moment of reckoning. It is already written in the shining stars. History has the final say. May we read history.
By the way, did you read my open Memo to you, Mr. Weah? If you haven’t, I admonish you to muster the courage to read it.
To my dear small brother, Patrick Honnah, we extend solidarity and admonish you to remain standing and soldering on. We are standing with you and we are standing together. God is still on his throne and he is a Man of Justice. He will grant you Justice before the eyes of our very oppressors and the nation shall rejoice.
