Unity Party Drag To Court In Bong County Over Refusal To Pay $6,000USD Rent Arrears
A landlord has dragged the Unity Party to the 9th Judicial Circuit Court in Gbarnga, Bong County for its failure to pay arrears since last year.
Speaking in an interview with The Monrovia Times Hallie Sabar, the owner of the three-bedroom house said his decision to take the Unity Party to court was due to the party’s failure to pay rent for about one year seven months.
Landlord Sabar placed the total amount owed by the Unity Party as six thousand United States Dollars adding that the party should pay his money and leave the house.
He alleged that officials of Unity Party Bong Chapter are not taking proper care of the building and they are allegedly renting it to others thus contravening the agreement signed by him and the party officials a few years back.
He revealed that in 2018 Unity Party was owing three thousand six hundred United States Dollar and since January of this year up to present the Party is owing one thousand eight hundred and additional six hundred Dollars arrears.
According to Mr. Sabar during the signing ceremony of the MOU the party agreed to be paying three hundred United States Dollars per Month.
The aggrieved landlord said based on the alleged refusal of the Party leadership to pay arrears owe him, it was important that he takes the party to courts on grounds that legality is the best.
“I want the party to give me all my money, why will they owe me? I’m not a Partisan of Unity Party? Even if so, do they know how this house was built? I used my high earn money to build my house, but for educated men and women to destroy it a few years, it beats my imagination.”
Mr. Sabar said the leadership of UP has over the past allegedly misused his building, describing it as very shameful for a Party that led for twelve years to owe a man who is struggling to survive.
“Let them pay my money and leave the house now that’s all I want,” he adds.
When our Correspondent contacted Unity Party National Chairman Wilmot Paye, he confirmed that the Party owes Landlord Sabar but said it’s the responsibility of the Party’s County Chairman Robert Womba to clarify to the media.
But effort made by this paper to contact the Chairman who is the Representative Bong County District#4 prove fruitless as his phone rang endlessly without respond.
