MONROVIA – Liberia’s Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection (MGCSP), Mrs. Williametta E. Saydee -Tarr has expressed regret over the untimely passing of another young Liberian woman.

The Minister spoke Wednesday, March 1, 2023 when she led a team of Gender Ministry officials on a solidarity visit at the residence of former Chief Justice, Cllr. Gloria Musu Scott.

While at the home of the former Chief Justice, the Minister and her team received a petition from the Female Lawyers Association of Liberia (AFFEL).

Upon receiving the petition for onward submission President George M. Weah, Minister Saydee-Tarr conveyed a condolence message to the bereaved family on behalf of the government and all women around the country.

“We are here in solidarity and as mothers, empathizing and, in sympathy with Justice Scott and the grieving family.”

It can be recalled, upon hearing of the incident, the Minister immediately dispatched a high-level team led by Deputy Minister of Gender Alice Johnson Howard, and Deputy Minister of Administration, Parleh Harris to the residence of Cllr. Scott. The Ministry team of psychosocial counselors is currently providing psychosocial support to the bereaved family.

Minister Tarr promised to personally deliver the petition to the Liberian President, highlighting that President Weah is also a parent who would not want to see this happen to any child, and that he also regrets the loss of a Liberian child.

She used the gathering to rally the women of Liberia by urging women to hold together in such a time.

In that direction, the Gender Minister who was accompanied by her Deputy and Assistant Ministers, along with MGCSP staff, reassured the grieving family of the ministry’s commitment to heightening the advocacy of women’s rights and protection from all forms of violence.
