A video of a junior minister in Liberia splashing expensive champagne on a luxury vehicle that he had reportedly bought for his wife as a birthday gift has sparked anger, especially among young supporters of the governing Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) party.
The CDC’s youth wing describes James Emmanuel Potter’s action last week as “a reckless display of wealth”.
The assistant minister hit back at his critics, saying in a Facebook post that he was a working person earning a salary to enable him do whatever pleased him. One Facebook user criticised the assistant minister’s actions saying:
“[Mr] Potter bought his wife an Audi SUV and sprayed it with expensive bottles of champagne while the masses suffer. Is this pro-poor?”
