ZWEDRU: Hundreds of concerned citizens have participated in a peaceful protest along the principal streets of Zwedru, the Capital City of Grand Gedeh County, in Southeast Liberia, against the appointment of former Representative of the County, Alex C. Grant, as Superintendent of Grand Gedeh County by President Joseph Nyuma Boakai.

Addressing a news conference during the protest, the spokesman of the concerned Grand Gedeans, Mr. Kai Gee, alleged that former lawmaker Grant is a person who has brought shame and disgrace to the people of Grand Gedeh County.

According to Mr. Gee, it is saddened that the deaths of many prominent sons of Grand Gedeh County in recent years are associated with former lawmaker Grant.

He accused the nominee, Alex C. Grant, of his involvement in the death of Representative Erol Madison Gwion (late); Otis Jolo, a prominent son of Grand Gedeh; and in the disappearance of an official of the National Elections Commission (NEC), Alfred Dunner, among many others.

The traditional leaders assured the protesters that their petition will be looked into.

It can be recalled that some Grand Gedeans based in Montserrado County, also staged a peaceful protest in recent times, at the capitol, the seat of the Liberian Legislature, during which the protestors urged the senate to reject former Representative Grant as Superintendent of Grand Gedeh.

However, former Lawmaker Grant, sometimes ago, categorically refuted claims that he was involved in the death of Representative Erol Madison Gwion. Former Representative Grant said claims being made against him were calculated by his detractors aimed at achieving their selfish political gains.

Former Representative Grant said, he has done nothing wrong that the allegations levied against him are designed by detractors to taint his good reputation.
