Liberia: Supporters celebrate George Weah’s presidential goal

Published

on

Celebrations by supporters of Liberia’s president-elect, George Weah, went deep into the night after the elections body – the National Elections Commission (NEC), declared the former footballer as winner of a poll run off.

Jerome Korkoya, NEC boss, said Weah polled over 61% of the total vote cast after collating over 98% of ballots cast. Supporters across the country jubilated after the announcement was made.

It was the former World Footballer’s second attempt at the presidency having lost the first to outgoing Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in 2006. He was a vice presidential candidate in 2011 along with candidate Winston Turnbull but Sirleaf managed to secure a second and final term in office.

Weah led in the first round of the vote but failed to make the 50%+ mark in October this year. He entered the runoff with Sirleaf’s deputy Joseph Boakai who came second in the earlier vote.

The High Court in Mukono District in central Uganda found her guilty of murdering her husband Eric Kiddu after hitting him several times on the head with an iron bar.

After the murder Nakku attempted to make the killing appear to be the result of an attack by unknown people by screaming and running to neighbours to ask for help. His body was later found in a pool of blood with a panga and brick besides it, the Daily Monitor reported.

The couple had quarrelled shortly before the bloody encounter with a misunderstanding leading to Kiddu’s death.

Nakku was advised by the judge to appeal the sentence if she was dissatisfied as relatives of both husband and wife argued outside the court, trading accusations.
