‘Tribal Politics A Refuge for Failed Politicians’

first_imgThe standard bearer of the Movement for Economic Empowerment (MOVEE), Dr. Joseph Mills Jones, has warned Liberians against politicians preaching tribal politics in the ensuing presidential and legislative elections.He said tribal politics is a refuge (sanctuary) for politicians who do not have anything to offer the people, and called on Liberians to be wary of such politicians because they preach that some Liberians are more Liberians than others.“We have denounced tribalism as the last refuge of politicians who do not have anything to offer the Liberian people,” Dr. Jones said. “Such failed politicians play the tribal card and they know nothing about nationalism.”Dr. Jones, who was recently confirmed as the political leader of MOVEE in Bopolu, Gbarpolu County, said while Liberians are concerned about moving the country forward, it behooves every citizen to open their eyes and provide their support to those who have shown a track record to care for their interests, and have used their responsibilities to empower them in their communities.Dr. Jones made the statement in relation to his involvement as Governor of the Central Bank of Liberia in empowering Liberians in the leeward counties with access to finances that has reportedly helped many, who would have otherwise not have a chance to that assistance.Dr. Jones said as Liberia looks forward to a better leadership, “There should be no place in the political arena for misfits whose every action is self-serving.”Described as ‘Poverty Doctor’ for his persistent advocate against poverty, Dr. Jones said Liberians are fed up at recycled politicians and political parties whose past demonstrate leadership incompetence.The former CBL Governor said Liberians cannot afford any political marriage of convenience, “which are carried out simply to gain power and to give the long-suffering masses a dose of incompetence and empty promises that heralded their past activities.”If elected president of Liberia in the forthcoming elections, Jones vowed to introduce a “caring heart leadership” that would make a difference in the lives of Liberians. He said patriotism should affect a leader to “put country above self; and not in words, but in deeds.” He insisted that poverty is not the destiny of Liberians, and promised to give voice to “the voiceless, the marginalized, the disaffected and the suffering poor.”The ‘Poverty Doctor’ reflected on his leadership at the CBL and how he stood up for market women, petty traders, carpenters, farmers, labor unions, among others, and initiated mechanisms that addressed their concerns.He said MOVEE as a political party for the poor and the downtrodden has offered hope from its inception, and promised to seek the interest of Liberians to lift them from poverty to a level where they can realize and appreciate their human dignity.“MOVEE’s unwavering conviction is that Liberians must have first preference in the country. This includes providing them jobs to make them owners of their land,” Dr. Jones said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Arrest warrant issued for election candidate after security guard’s car attacked

first_imgA former election candidate who attacked a security guard’s car during a stand-off at a repossessed building in Letterkenny has had a warrant issued for his arrest.Michael Mooney failed to appear at Letterkenny District Court where he was charged with criminal damage. The court heard how Mooney, aged 44, who is originally from Culdaff but who owns houses in Letterkenny, was at the Kube building at the Thorn in Letterkenny in January, 2017.A security company was patrolling the premises which had been at the centre of a court battle between the banks and its original owner Brendan Gildea.Dashcam footage of security guard Samuel Chestnut showed him arriving at the building with Mr Mooney standing on the road in front of him.Mr Chestnut stops momentarily as Mooney refuses to move and the security guard then revs his engine.The driver’s car then appears to strike Mooney who suddenly bangs his mobile phone off the bonnet of the car and then proceeds to kick the passenger wing-mirror  of the vehicle.Mr Chestnut is then heard saying “That was Michael Mooney” as he drives on.The security guard said that the damage to the car was over £250 sterling to repair as the wing mirror was smashed and there was a dent in the bonnet.Mooney, who stood in the 2016 General Election as an Independent candidate, was later arrested and admitted he was there in support of Mr Gildea but denied any wrongdoing.He told interviewing Gardai that he was not interfering with anybody’s business and that Mr Gildea had merely wanted to maintain ownership of the building and he was offering support to him.He said he had been crossing the road when a car approached him on the wrong side of the entrance into a building and then struck him.He said he had to go to hospital after developing a pain in his back and was still having physio as a result.Judge Paul Kelly said Money had originally been in court on March 25th and he had refused to enter a plea.“I told him he should get legal advice and he declined to agree to that and I told him I was entering a not guilty plea on his behalf,” said Judge Kelly.He added that having heard the facts he was finding matters proved and issued a bench warrant for Mooney’s arrest for sentencing.Arrest warrant issued for election candidate after security guard’s car attacked was last modified: October 21st, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BRENDAN GILDEAcourtcriminal damageGardaiKubeMartin Mooneyprotestlast_img read more
