George Weah runs a hawkish kleptocracy (a criminal empire). He is a lawless President who violates all the laws of his country with a bellicose fist. His citizens are “dirt poor”, jobless and dying on a daily basis from extreme hunger. His economy wallows in total shambles. In the name of “Stimulus Package”, he shamelessly begged the IMF for a loan to buy rice, oil, and beans for his people (an unsustainable food distribution that now seems delusional)— meaning he is a father who is either unable to feed his children or places zero emphasis on the wellbeing of his children.
The moral contradiction he dabbles and fumbles in is that even though he is begging others to feed his people, he is, however, purchasing exotic fleets of bulletproof cars and building luxurious condominiums right before the very eyes of his hungry, depressed and weary citizens. Insofar Weah satisfies his garish lifestyle all is well and the rest can go to HELL and kiss the DEVIL. This is plainly the cognition of the man who is President of my homeland, Liberia. If this is not NARCISSISM I know no other way to frame it. His gov’t has become undesirable due to his brazen misrule of the country.
Amid these looming idiosyncrasies, a few of his buzzards shockingly mustered the temerity to contend that he (George Weah) is the “6th best Performing President in Africa”. Wow, are these Weah henchmen well and sound? Are they on some sort of deadly substance that parachutes them to the moon? Are they under some lying spell or curse that has turned them into pathological liars? Do they have any moral conscience?
Even in their desperation for a bit of good news as they have drowned in a cesspool of bad narratives created by themselves, must they manufacture such a BLACK LIE about Weah’s and his disreputable presidency? A president that is doing well by his people doesn’t need public relations, his people will invariably be his PROs. They will echo his good news wide and loud. Can you guys stop this Hilarious Nonsense for a moment!
We will meet at the polls on December 8th, 2020, and there, and then the Liberian people will render a judgment on Weah’s LEADERSHIP OF THEIR COUNTRY.
Indeed, now is the winter of our discontent! Blood in our eyes!
