“As head of the traditional chiefs and elders, the advisory armed of the government, I am calling on all Liberians including all political parties to keep the peace, and for any reason you aren’t satisfied with the election result, go to the law.
“The art that created the council of chiefs and elders, our work is to protect and preserve the culture and serve as an advisory arm to the government, so let me make it clear that I am independent and not part of any political party so nobody should think that I am a part of a particular party,” Chief Karwor said.
Chief Karwoh further said that there has been a temporary ban placed on bringing country devils outside whether for traditional reasons or intimidating purposes across the 15 parts of Liberia till after the November 14, 2023 elections.
