Liberia: your wife is a better leader than you

Forty LURD commanders have called on their chairman Sekou Damate to step down in favour of his wife Aisha Keita Conneh.

According to AFP, Conneh has already replaced Damate.

An interesting aside ... Conneh is the daughter of Guinean President Lansana Conte's personal fortune teller. Conneh herself is believed to be clairvoyant. And Conte is thought to have been a big LURD supporter.

LURD = Liberians United for Reconciliation and Democracy
