He accused Pres. Weah of pocketing funds allocated for development at the time of tenure of senator of Montserrado, “. He served as a senator for almost three years, before his ascendancy to the president all funds that given for the development of Montserrado got pocketed and used for personal purposes”.
Rep. Kolubah spoke recently when he delivered his first legislative report to his constituents in the district.
The report was characterized by initiatives carried out in the district and at the Capitol Building. Three of the over 32 communities in district 10 were represented and copies of the report were distributed in order for constituents to review and make an input.
