Harry Moniba Politician

Dr. Harry Fumba Moniba (22 October 1937- 24 November 2004) was a politician in Liberia hailing from the northwestern county of Lofa. He was the vice-president of Liberia from 1984 to September 1990 under the banner of the National Democratic Party of Liberia and ran for president in 1997. He planned to run in the 2005 Liberian presidential election but was killed in a 2-car accident in Michigan on 24 November 2004. He was afforded one of the largest state funerals in Liberian history. He left behind his wife Minita, and their five children. His burial grounds was highly contested with several groups of Liberians threatening violence if he was not buried in his home county, while others advocated for him to be buried on the grounds of the national gravesite. His family decided to place his remains in the compound of their suburban Monrovia home. Two funerals were held in honor of Dr. Moniba: one in the United States and one in his home country of Liberia. At the U.S. funeral, Dr. Moniba's widow (Minita) was presented with the United States flag by Congresman Nick Smith. The flag had been flown at half mast over the U.
