Snakes Chase George Weah Out Of Office

President George Weah of Liberia has been forced to work from his private residence after snakes were found in his office.

Smith Toby, the country’s Deputy Press Secretary, told BBC on Wednesday that two black snakes were found in the Foreign Affairs Ministry building that contains his office.

“It’s just to make sure that crawling and creeping things get fumigated from the building,” Toby said.

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs hosts the office of the president, so it did an internal memo asking the staff to stay home while they do the fumigation.”

The Deputy Press Secretary said the “snakes were never killed,” because “there was a little hole somewhere [through which] they made their way back.”

Toby added that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs commenced fumigation on Friday to take care of “crawling and creeping things.”

“That building’s been there for years now, and [because of] the drainage system, the possibility of having things like snakes crawling in that building was high,” he said.

“The President is definitely returning to his office on Monday after the fumigation whether or not the snakes are found and killed.”
