Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs adjourned the confirmation hearing for Amb. Dee Maxwell Kemayah after documents surfaced from Madam Wynee Cummings Wilson concerning allegations of sexual harassment on the part of the Ambassador.
The action taken by the Senate today means that no decision was taken to forward an affirmative recommendation to Plenary for the nominee to be confirmed, sources closed to Capitol Hill said.
‘The decision also says the complainant’s allegation was credible,’ the source continued.
Additionally, the source continued ‘The decision means that any other person who may have been sexually harassed can now come forward.’
Before his nomination to the top Foreign Ministry’s post by His Excellency George Weah, Amb. Kemayah has been representing Liberia at the UN.
His nomination for his new role took an immediate turn when an employee at the UN, Liberia Mission alleged that he forced her into a kiss which she later termed sexual harassment.
Despite a huge turn out by women Monday on Capitol Hill for Kemayah’s confirmation, the Senate had to take a different look into the matter given the severity of the matter.
