Why Bong County Celebrity Lawmaker Lost 2017 Election


Gbarnga, Bong County - District three Representative George Mulbah (People’s Unification Party) who was once celebrated as the “voice of Bong County,’’ won’t be joining the county caucus when the 54th Legislature is seated in January. The two-term lawmaker, who crafted the bill for the construction of the Bong County Technical College (BCTC) and promised to pave Gbarnga’s roads, fell out of favor with Bong citizens after a series of missteps in his second term. Mulbah is one of five Bong lawmakers who lost their seats during the Oct. 10, 2017 elections. When the bill was passed, Mulbah returned to Bong County as a celebrity. He was hailed as the county’s “best lawmaker.”The Bong County Technical College, Mulbah’s signature project, is unfinished due to allegations of mismanagement and embezzlement of the US$4M earmarked for the project.
