NDC Sympathizes with NKT Tragedy Victims -Wants Proper Security Protocols Established for Crusades

MONROVIA: In the aftermath of the gruesome New Kru Town church crusade that left 29 worshippers dead when disadvantaged youths allegedly attacked the worshippers, the National Democratic Coalition of Liberia (NDC) through its leadership has expressed profound condolences to the families of the deceased.  The NDC in the same token says the government should not have allowed a gathering of more than 50 persons at the aforementioned religious event and other events in the past several months in violation of COVID-19 Pandemic Health Protocols.

“It is further observed that there was a lack of proper security safeguard by the organizers, the city, and the national police at the event at a time when citizens are vulnerable to unprovoked attacks by criminal bands in many communities around Monrovia,” the NDC noted, while expressing profound condolences to the families of those who lost their lives during a church event in the Borough of New Kru Town recently.

“Hence, the NDC proposes a thorough investigation of the incident by the Liberian government so as to bring to justice the perpetrators of this violence; address the lack of security and safeguard for the attendees; investigate the general breach as well as lack of enforcement of COVID-19 Pandemic Protocols at government, religious, private, and other events or gatherings in the country; and put in place the necessary measures that will prevent the recurrence of this national tragedy. In addition, the NDC admonishes the public and government to avoid being hasty in placing blame on the less fortunate and disadvantaged population of the country commonly referred to as “Zogos” in the absence of proper investigation, facts and evidence,” the NDC statement said.

The NDC is Liberia’s social democratic political coalition that was founded in 2011. The coalition comprises the New Democratic Alternative for Liberia Movement (The NEW DEAL Movement whose motto is “LIBERIA FIRST”), the Free Democratic Party (FDP), and other social democratic political groups, movements, and entities in Liberia.
