President Weah said those insulting after the protest will face the full weight of the law.

“You can say whatever you want to, but be warned that cusses, insults and incitement of violence will never again be permitted under my administration,” the President asserted, adding that much of the unlawful and untraditional attitudes exhibited in the country were tolerated so much for long and it was time to handle them within the confine of the law.

  • Tell that idiot George Weah to learn to read better so he start making sense. Nothing he displays but ignorance. Are insults more hurtful than the economic hardship in the country?

    • You are more idiot than President Weah. Why is it that you who claim to be “educated” don’t think and act as such. We are African specifically Liberians. We have African values and practices. In Africa specifically Liberia, we “respect” our “elders”. We engage them “constructively and respectfully” because of their influence and status. We are not Americans, Europeans, etc. So, President Weah said those who incite violence but insulting people in “authority” will be dealt with according to the “laws” of Liberia.

  • I think I agree with the Prezo even tho’ I’m not his supporter politically. But I will also be in agreement with him were he to also issue statements bringing to book those whom are perceived as involving in broad daylight thievery, corruption, bullying through the use of power, the list may go on. For when the latter is overlooked and people go Scot free with impunity, then public anger begins to be expressed through cusses and the like. Ma pipo, let talk so talk so. But I’m strongly against cussing especially cussing our leaders.
