Last night, prideful Liberians watched with anticipation as countries around the world paraded into the Rio Paralympic Stadium at the Opening Ceremony. To the disappointment of many people, the Lonestar Banner did not enter into the arena.
Where was, Liberia’s strong man, James Bobby Siaffa?
According to a letter sent to the International Paralympic Committee, Siaffa has taken a stand against issues of abuse and neglect from the Liberian National Paralympic Committee President and Secretary General. The Powerlifter alleges that he sustained constant verbal abuse, poor treatment, abandonment and no athletic support from LNPC President Jefferson Zoegbeh and Secretary General Festus Robinson.
