Throughout my years in speaking out and standing up for women and children, I have experienced no such things as now. When we chose to get involved into this case, we knew the forces of evil would be tempted to defend evils even if it requires them to kill. When Rep. Waylee's two vehicles chased me and my colleagues, that alone was a sign that the call for justice is just and that the only means to have deterred me and others was make threats. But it appeared we remained adamant and still are. As I write this post, I am frightened and afraid than ever before. Fear is taking a resting place in my life. Never have I faced such situation. The threats on my life are becoming enormous and visible everyday. I feel insecure in my own country. There are those who are prepared to silence and kill the voices of truth, social justice and equality. On last Friday, a Frontpage Africa's journalist was threatened and another's camera was destroyed.
There was a protest last week by Waylee's supporters on the grounds of the Liberia National Police. They had assembled to demand his release from police custody. But during their protest, my name was mentioned multiple times as the person who brought the lawmaker's character to public disrepute. From their tone, one can conclude that if I were present or could be seen anywhere around there, I would not have lived to tell the story. This speaks volume to the unfolding events.
In this public manner, I want to make it known that my life is in the hands of Rep. Waylee and his followers. Anything should happen to me, they are to be held liable. I am once again writing government agencies, diplomatic missions and state security to inform them about the threats I have been receiving. My colleagues as well feel insecure and have been confronted by surrogates of the lawmaker and defenders of ills and injustices. They have been threatened to discontinue and disembark from calling for the right things to be done and that justice should prevail for the 13-years old victim.
Please take note! We are in tough and threatening times.
