“Munah’s Passing Is A Tragedy Without Remedy,” Says CDC Chairman

MONROVIA, Aug. 11 (LINA) – In eulogy to deceased Rep. Munah E. Pelham-Youngblood, the Chairman of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), Mulbah K. Morlu, could not hold back his sorrow while unleashing what seems to be a general thought of members of his party and well-wishers who had gone at the Samuel K. Doe Sports Complex to pay homage to the fallen lawmaker.

Morlu said on behalf of sympathizers and members of the CDC that “Munah’s passing is a grief too difficult to bear, and a tragedy without remedy.”

“We stand collectively shattered in spirit, starring down a hopeless abyss at the corpse of the CDC Striker whose death leaves us all empty handed,” Morlue said at the weekend funeral service of Rep. Youngblood ahead of her interment at the Congo Town cemetery outside Monrovia.

The CDC, he said, is inconsolably devastated by the death of its most eloquent female ‘warrior’, while emphasizing that the late District #9 lawmaker will be eternally remembered by many for the good initiatives she undertook while serving for 10 years as a political reformer on women rights, the rights of the girl-child as well as women empowerment, and many more.

Liberians irrespective of political backgrounds paid homage to Rep. Youngblood, 36, and celebrated her life for the struggle for social change she pushed over the years, if not for standing out as a brave female politician who fought to make the entrenched patriarchal culture within the Liberian democracy a thing of the past.

Morlu noted that the late Lawmaker was being laid to rest after a prolific trench-warfare, noting that she refuses to be silenced by death, issuing perhaps the biggest of her revolutionary mandates.

“Let’s go under the sycamore tree to solve our problems,” he urged partisans of the CDC, while stating, “These are some of the contents of the « will » and we must all pay attention to ensure Munah’s sacrifices for the CDC does not go in vain as we keep listening to signals beyond the grave for Munah’s thoughts.”

The deceased lawmaker, according to Morlu, was a fighter and that she died a fighter and remains a fighter even in death as her thunderous voice of command continues to reverberate across Montserrado County, her constituency.

“She was the Leopard in town that would chase away the little foxes that sneaked out of their holes once to pollute the vine. She will also be remembered at home and abroad as that energetic, bold and fearless lawmaker who endlessly navigated domestic and regional power corridors and forcefully seeking the betterment of her people,” he noted.

The Chairman pointed out that the fallen Representative left the party (CDC) with a vacuum that none can truly occupy, wondering who brings their standard-bearer to the microphone again in the revolutionary manner and fashion that would electrify the platform, energize the leader, as she so uniquely did.

“Where is the vibrant voice of distinction that prominently towered above many on the legislative floor for gender and other rights,” he asked.

Chairman Morlu stated that as the CDC remembers the accomplished legacy of their only Striker, the party will name its vocational training school, which is currently under construction, as the Munah E. Pelham-Youngblood Center for Arts, Culture and Vocational Studies when completed this year.

“It shall be open to all Liberians as a free education platform to build technical and skills capacity, a vision Munah fought to uphold all her lifetime,” he noted.
