Representative Aspirant Dumoe Donates LD$200,000 to Gbarnga Central Mosque as he Continues Consultations in District Three
GBARNGA — In what appears to be a voters’ perception survey, former Bong County Senatorial Candidate, Menipakei Dumoe on Thursday, July 21, 2022, paid a courtesy visit to the Muslim Community in Gbarnga.
Dumoe, who is being asked by a cross section of Electoral District #3 citizens to vie for the District’s Representative seat in 2023, was seen interacting with some officials of the Gbarnga Central Mosque.
As part of his interaction, Dumoe visited the ongoing construction site of the Gbarnga Central Mosque and made a cash donation of LD$200,000 to the project.
It is not exactly clear what their conversation centered around, but FPA has learned that Mr. Dumoe’s visit was part of ongoing consultative meetings he’s holding with citizens across the District regarding his rumored 2023 bid.
Dumoe contested in the 2020 special Senatorial election in Bong County as an Independent Candidate.
Despite being considered one of the underdogs, Dumoe enjoyed the support of several young people across the county on his debut in a contest that featured then incumbent Senate Henry Yallah and former Deputy House Speaker now Senator Prince Moye.
Should Dumoe heed to his fellow citizens’ request, incumbent Representative Josiah Marvin Cole will have an uphill task to perform while tiptoeing his way back to the Legislature in next year’s crucial elections.
Gbarnga, which covers a huge portion of District #3 is among several places Dumoe is loved and admired for his critical stance on issues of national concern.
He became famous in Bong County when he proffered the freeing of former Liberian President, Charles Taylor from detention as one his many campaign promises.
