Charlyne Removes Father’s “Desecrated” Billboard          

BUCHANAN – As the internal rift within the opposition Liberty Party widens day by day, the latest development in Grand Bassa County has sent shivers down the spine of many who hold in high and revered esteem the sainted memory of the party’s founder and first Standard Bearer, Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine.    Citizens and residents of Buchanan City witnessed in shock and awe when Cllr. Charlyne M. Brumskine, daughter of the late Cllr. Charles W. Brumskine, removed her father’s fallen billboard from the local headquarters of the Senator Nyonblee Karngar-Lawrence-led faction of the party. As of the time of removal of the billboard on Thursday, only the billboard bearing the image of Senator Lawrence remains standing in the vicinity.

Footages of the shocking incident on social media showed Cllr. Charlyne Brumskine removing the image of her father from the billboard along with group of her supporters, mainly youths.  The discarded billboard was accordingly uprooted by unknown persons for quite some time without any effort being made to reposition it.

The young lawyer who recently declared her intention to contest for the District #3 seat in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County on the ticket of the Liberty Party/CPP appeared flustered, yet maintained her cool as she actively participated in removing the billboard, after which she later addressed the media.

“I think for those who removed the image of Cllr. Brumskine, I have sent the message very loud to many people. But I want them to remember as I said earlier today, His Excellency George Manneh Weah, Mr. Joseph Nyumah Boakai, Mr. Alexander Cumming, Mr. Benoni Urey and all the political leaders of all the other political institutions respected Cllr. Brumskine.

“And I want you all to know that we are removing it with honor and dignity. We hold no malice to anyone, we have forgiven everyone but we cannot allow this to happen”, she said.

Thereafter, she drove with her supporters with the image to a place believed to be her residence amid chanting of battle cries, slogans and show of support.

There has been no information about the identity of those who might have been the masterminds of the late Cllr. Brumskine’s billboard desecration, but the incident remains a point of discussion in Buchanan as to why the image of the founder would be uprooted within Senator Kangar-Lawrence’s local office headquarters without it being repositioned in a respectable manner.

All efforts to verify from Senator Lawrence on how come the late Cllr. Burmskine’s billboard got allegedly desecrated at the premises of her local office in Buchanan, proved futile. However, the Analyst contacted Liberty Party Vice Chairman for Public Affairs, Mr. Daniel Sando, who works directly in the office of Senator Lawrence.

According to Mr. Sando, it is not true that someone willfully threw down the billboard bearing the image of Cllr. Charles Brumskine. He disclosed that the billboard has fallen down more than three times, and that whenever such occurred, the Chairman of the Liberty Party branch in Buchanan always instructed that the billboard be replanted. But for this time when the billboard fell, Sando said the local Chairman was not in the county, stating that those assigned at the party headquarter were awaiting the arrival of the chairman in the county to have the billboard replanted.

“Charlyne should stop what she is doing. If she wants to win Grand Bassa County, she should not use the means of fomenting confusion. Where was she when we were behind Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine, making all kinds of sacrifices to get the Liberty Party to where it is today? We have our party’s founding father the late Cllr. Charles Brumskine at heart; and we have the party at heart,” Mr. Sando cautioned.
