Thousands protest against George Weah in Liberia

Stay Home. Stay Safe. Save Lives.

Thousands of people have marched through the streets of the Liberian capital, Monrovia, to protest against President George Weah’s handling of the economy – which has seen spiralling inflation.

The demonstrators want Mr Weah to say what happened to $25m (£19m) that the government withdrew from the country’s Federal Reserve Account in 2018 in an effort to stabilise the economy.

They have also called on the former football star to declare his assets before and after he became president two years ago.

Mr Weah has accused opposition politicians of organising the demonstration and he called on them to focus instead on creating jobs.
