He encouraged the traditional zoes in the county to support President George’s re-election bid based on the level of development activities, including the pavement of roads across the country.
“See the roads, see the roads; in the past, this road was very bad, but look at it today, the road is good,” he added.
He said that supporting President George Weah’s re-election bid will enable him to carry out more development activities across the country.
Chief Zanzan Karwor made the call recently in Gbanquoi, district number 7 in Nimba County during the closure of bush schools in the traditional groves in Nimba County in support of the elimination of FGM practices in Liberia.
According to him, as they move across the country to close bush schools, that will be his message to inform the chiefs and elders of Liberia to support the re-election of President George Weah.
Meanwhile, Chief Zoe Zanzan Karwor has urged traditional leaders in the country not to use the bush master to harm non-members, including women, during election periods. Instead, he emphasized that traditional leaders across the country should allow all political parties to visit their communities and towns with their election message, saying, “Traditional leaders, please allow all of the political parties to visit your various towns and villages to campaign. Don’t use the country devils to prevent them from visiting your people,” he added.
Chief Zoe Zanzan Karwor also cautioned traditional leaders not to allow cell phones to enter the zoe bush because some members use them to record all of the activities and bring them outside.
He vowed to tour the rest of the counties to encourage zoes, including traditional leaders, to support President George Weah’s re-election bid.
Chief Zanzan Karwor then referred to the CDC government of President George Weah as the best among the rest.
Some members of the traditional leaders in vote-rich Nimba County told our Nimba County correspondent that their boss, Chief Zoe Zanzan Karwor, has no right to force them against their own will. Instead, they will vote for the person they feel is a good leader.
