Yekeh Kolubah Thrown Out of Session -For “improper dressing”

MONROVIA – Controversial Montserrado County District #10 lawmaker, Yekeh Kolubah, was again in the news yesterday, Wednesday, February 3, 2022 for the wrong reason when he was thrown out of the regular plenary session of the House of Representative for what was described as “improper dressing” by the leadership of the lower house of the National Legislature.

According to our reporter who followed the incident, Representative Kolubah had gone to the Capitol Building, just like his other colleagues to attend to the business of the day dressed in a pair of trousers with a T-Shirt under a coat and had taken seat when one of his colleagues raised the issues surrounding his mode of his dressing which was said to be against the official dress code adopted by the House. The official dress code of the House says lawmakers can wear coat suits, traditional attire and French suits but Mr. Kolubah’s attire did not represent the dress code of a lawmaker.

The complaint against his dressing was referred to Representative Johnson Gwaikolo of Nimba County, Chairman on the House Standing Committee on Rules and Order, whose submission tallied with those of his other colleagues who were protesting against Representative Kolubah. It was at that point, the District #10 lawmaker was led out of the session by the Sergeant at Arms.

Representative Kolubah in the past has been in running tussles with the leadership of the House and his colleagues, and has even been involved into open throwing of invectives on President George Manneh Weah. Rep. Kolubah was punished for some of those acts including being suspended and forfeiting his salaries and other benefits at some point in time.

Just on Wednesday, February 3, 2022, Representative Kolubah announced that he was lifting his self-imposed suspension of his membership with the Alternative National Congress (ANC) and the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP).

Meanwhile, Montserrado County District #8 Representative Moses Acarous Gray has threatened to rally some of colleagues in the lower house to flog Representative Yekeh Kolubah if he continues to insult President Weah.

“When Yekeh insults the president here, we will beat him,” Representative Gray threatened Thursday.
