Yekeh under probe after thrown out of session

Speaker Bhofal Chambers has requested the House Committee on Rules, Order and Administration to investigate Montserrado Dist 10 lawmaker, Yekeh Kolubah and recommend necessary actions.

Rep. Kolubah was thrown out of session Tuesday for acts inimical to the office of Representative; tension was heightened and it took two colleagues of the lawmaker to walk him out peacefully.

The probe committee is headed by Lofa County lawmaker Mariama Fofana.

Yekeh went ballistic Tuesday on Speaker Chambers, his colleagues and the Liberian President after his securities reportedly got imprisoned.

The Montserrado lawmaker said Speaker Chambers is now a ‘Bodyguard’ of the President instead of creating checks and balance of the Executive.

He frowned on the Speaker for continuously refusing to place his concerns on the floor of the Legislature.

The lawmaker accused the Speaker of being dictated to by the President and not serving Lawmakers as he was constitutionally elected.

For many of his colleagues, his action is unbecoming and desecrates the sanity of the body.

Some of the harshest punishment for said action could be expulsion, sources close to Capitol Hill politics said Tuesday.

The opposition lawmaker has also resigned from the Council of Patriots and suspended membership with the Coalition of Political Parties, all opposition bodies.

According to the Dist 10 lawmaker, these opposition entities have failed to protect the interest of fellow opposition members like himself.
