-Doe Community Youth Threaten To Resist Political Campaigns
Youth of Doe Community in Bushrod Island have threatened to resist any attempt by political parties to campaign in the community ahead of the impending October 10, 2017 presidential and legislative elections over reported failure of the Liberian government to rehabilitate roads within the community.

According to them, they have made series of appeals to the Liberian government and other state actors regarding the deplorable state of their community roads, but their appeals have fallen on ‘dead ears’.
The aggrieved young people who carried placards with inscriptions ‘Madam President fooled us, no roads, no vote’ during a post Ramadan celebration organized by the Youth Leagues of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC), United People Party (UPP) and the All Liberian Party (ALP) said they wouldn’t rest until their demands are met by those vying for elected posts in the country.
Doe community is among several slum communities in Monrovia with high population of eligible voters, yet the residents of the community are reportedly cut off due to rain and underground waters that usually fill potholes during the height of the rainy season.
The community in Montserrado County Electoral District#14 is currently represented at the National Legislature by Representative Abraham Vamuyah Conneh, alias ‘AVC’.
Speaking to reporters over the weekend, the President of the Doe Community Youth, Steven Moore said for long they had cried, agitated and played all of the advocacy roles over the deplorable roads in the community.
“If there is no road in Doe community, there will be no campaign for any political institution in the Republic of Liberia. We are prepared as people and as citizens of this country that are living in this slum. While we are living in this slum, the slum is not living in us. We are prepared to gain the change that we want to see,” Moore said on behalf of the aggrieved youth.
He further urged that if any political actor wants to campaign in the community he/she must be prepared enough to contribute to the development of the community.
“There is no sense for the people of Doe community to contribute, and sponsor their own development specifically the roads and experience people coming to us using our roads, using our assets to campaign to us. Doe community remains a part of our country,” he added.
For his part, the youth league chairman of the All Liberian Party (ALP), Ike Moore said he feels the pains the residents of the community are going through.
Moore indicated that the aggrieved young people of the community are right because their actions will draw government and other state actors` concern.
According to Moore, the Minister of Public Works should have embarked on the rehabilitation of the Doe community roads rather than the Barnersville roads, saying the people of Doe community have suffered for too long.
“We are prepared to take these placards to the Public Works Ministry and we will be with you to get roads before the elections. We will join this struggle and we are with you,” he said.
