George Weah won, but are we serious about our politics or the status quo?
admin | December 24, 2014 | no comments By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh George Manneh Weah George Manneh Oppong Weah finally won a senate seat in Montserrado County. He did not only crush his main rival, presidential son Robert A. Sirleaf, who ran conveniently and unsuccessfully as an independent candidate. Weah won convincingly by a whopping 79.6 percent to Sirleaf's 26.1 percent. Even though I am not a supporter, kudos to Weah for his senate victory and his marathon efforts for political office, which should not be taken lightly because it takes courage and heart-wrenching toughness to run for any political office, let alone running three times and counting for any political office. Now that George Manneh Oppong Weah is "Senator Weah," is he ready for the Liberian senate? I posed this same question in another piece that I wrote close to two years ago. The truth is, I doubt that George Weah is ready for the Liberian senate, or is even ready to be President of Liberia. Why? Weah (not the celebrity and iconic former football player), but Weah the politician hasn't shown any leadership in his increasingly indiscipline, acrimonious and caustic CDC political party. Weah hasn't shown leadership on the national level on any burning national issues, and hasn't shown any decision-making skills, knowledge of politics and the intellectual heft that comes with politics when one is in the middle of competing interests and issues. For Weah, however, winning the Montserrado County senate seat that includes central Monrovia, the nation's capital, Bushrod Island and surrounding areas is just the beginning of the head wind that awaits him. And he must learn quickly and act quickly and decisively to cement his place not as a celebrity (care taker) senator, but as a serious legislator - a visionary legislator who is ready to stamp his mark on jobs creation, education, economic development, law and order, infrastructure development and the environment, etc, to be taken seriously. Weah's success on these critical issues or some of them in the Liberian senate could give him credibility and elevate him and his near-messianic status to the Liberian presidency. However troubling is, with the senate victory in 2014 now out of the way, Oppong is poised to spend just two years in the Liberian senate; that is if his plan or strategy works well for him to run for the Liberian presidency in 2017. This thing about Weah, the transitory Senator to be and President in waiting will be in the senate briefly to learn governance and leadership and then run for president in 2017, says a lot about some Liberians who want this untested man to be waiting in the wing to be President of Liberia, as if the Liberian presidency is an inherited royal throne awaiting a singular individual to grow up. With stratospheric popularity that often mesmerizes political opponents, and also scares would-be rivals that they are willing to abandon their own political party in a heart beat for Weah's Congress for Democratic Change political party, certainly encourages Weah's supporters to believe he is the leader the country has been looking for in over a century of its existence as a sovereign nation. Let's learn to be realistic, folks, for our country's sake and for the next generation. Tags: featured, George Manneh Weah
