Liberia’s president and former international footballer George Weah is working from home after two snakes were found in the building that contains his office.
The black snakes were seen this week briefly emerging from a hole in a wall of the reception area of the building in Monrovia, Liberia’s capital.
Deputy press secretary Smith Toby said that the former international soccer star and President Weah was told to stay away until the Foreign Affairs building can be fumigated.
The president’s office has been located in Ministry of Foreign Affairs since a fire gutted the presidential mansion in 2006.
The deputy press secretary said his office has opened an inquiry on the matter and a fumigation process has begun to take care of ‘crawling and creeping things.’
It is less than a month since the building was last closed for fumigation between 29 March and 1 April.
‘The snakes were never killed,’ Mr Toby said. ‘There was a little hole somewhere… they made their way back.’
The Executive Protection Service was unable to kill the snakes as they vanished back through the same passage from which they first appeared, a source told FrontPageAfrica.
‘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,’ Mr Toby said.
