A fake Facebook account is currently using the particulars of the  District number 10 (District#10) lawmaker of Montserrado County, Liberia, to throw insults and memes. Named Yekeh Kolubah, the account has been throwing indirect insults at the female representative aspirant, Karishma Pelham Raad, who has vowed to unseat Yekeh Kolubah in the 2023 National Elections in the Country. 

On August 23,2021, this account posted “I know nothing is impossible but a hoppojoe can never unseat me in district#10”. Again, on August 25, the account posted  “Value your pu**y not every niqqa will say they’ve Fu*ked yew!!

Many comments under these posts called on Kolubah to desist from this action while a few responded that the account was fake. But many also say that his antecedents as a tough talking politician who easily insults the president and other officials in parliament are  facts to determine he is the user and owner of the account.
