It beats my imagination to some level, and even beyond some level to have listened to a statement from Africa’s first female president-Ellen Johnson down- playing statement made by her chief bodyguard, Othello Warrick.
Quietly frankly and with no ounce of surprise, she is entitled to her opinion like any Liberian citizen on anything she wants to comment on, and how she chooses to comment.
But what is more disturbingly of concern is her latest utterances regarding the media blackout imposed on her by the Press Union of Liberia in the wake of Warrick’s bullying statement: “If they like, they can go on with the black out for the rest of the year.”
What a statement, Ma Ellen! What a tongue-tied way to respond to such national issue that hinges on the security of another group of Liberians who are doing a piece of job as their conscience depicts!
