MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Leadership of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) Widows has apologized to President George Weah for its recent protest at Star Base on Bushrod Island.

They were demanding benefits of their deceased husbands, accusing Executive Mansion Chief of Protocol, Finda Bundoo, of being irresponsible for the delay in setting them, a claim Madam Bundoo has since denied.

Addressing a news conference on Tuesday, September 6, 2022, the AFL Widows’ Leadership apologized to President Weah and Madam Bundoo for the embarrassment caused, as a result of the protest.

The Leadership assured the Liberian Government that they will never take to the street in demand of any benefit, but will negotiate with Government.

The Organization Vice Chairperson for Operation, Oretha Tweh, Vice Chairperson for Administration, Musu Kermue and Chairperson Mary Allison spoke at the news conference.

Meanwhile, the National Bureau of Veteran Affairs through its Assistant Director General for Women and Children, Ophelia Hinneh, also appealed to The President and Executive Mansion Chief of Protocol to forgive the AFL Widows.

She assured the widows that the Bureau will always work with the relevant authorities in seeking their welfare in accordance with the mandate of the institution.
