Monrovia – When President George Weah was Senator he had requested the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to issue his wife a Liberian passport.

She was denied on grounds that she was not a Liberian citizen.

Madam Clar Weah, who was born in Jamaica to Jamaican parents, migrated to Fort Lauderdale, Florida in the United States where she runs a thriving Caribbean restaurant and grocery store.

According to reports, the President met his wife, Clar, at a Chase bank, where she worked as a Customer Service personnel. He had gone to open an account with the bank.

She was firstly denied possessing a Liberian passport even after her fingerprints were done at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

But with her new portfolio, her husband will waive her status and she will possess a Liberian passport.
