Pres. Weah, Others Sign Book Of Condolence

By Edwin G. Wandah
The Liberian leader, President George M. Weah, along with an array of Government officials yesterday, signed the book of Condolence in honor of falling Montserrado County electoral District #9 Representative Munah Evangeline Pelham-Youngblood.
Representative Youngblood died on July 8, 2020 in Ghana after a protracted illness. Prior to the demise of the late lawmaker, she was a long serving member of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change-CDC, winning District #9 twice as a Representative.
The late lawmaker was born on September 22, 1983, and won as the youngest lawmaker at the 53rd legislature, chairing and serving on several committees at the level of the legislature. Before being introduced into politics by her husband, she worked as a fashion and runway model.
She was married to a gold miner, Dr. Raymond Youngblood. She represented Liberia at the Malaika International 2004 and Miss Silverbird International in 2005 emerging as first runner-up in the Miss Liberia contest of 2005. She fell ill in mid-April 2018 and traveled to Ghana and the Ivory Coast before leaving for India where she received treatment for the first time.
Before her death on July 8, 2020, rumor broke out about her death and provoked public outcry which met up with a serious rebuttal from her family members, her party and supporters within her district.
Meanwhile, the Liberian leader who signed the book of condolence expressed sorry and regrets over the passing away of the District #9 lawmaker. Grieving as he signed the book of condolence, a host of government officials, the Speaker and Senate Pro-temp along with the 54th Legislature were seen in somber mood.
