Claim: This is Weah’ palace on the Marshall Road.

Verdict: False: the building is not for President Weah.

Full Story: A social media post of a huge palace was on Thursday paraded on social media, with a claim that it is owned by Liberia’s President George Manneh Weah.

The claim follows Presidential Aspirant Counselor Tiawon Gongloe’s request to Weah to muster the courage and disclose the source of funding for the barrage of properties accumulated and constructed following his ascendancy to the presidency.

Cllr. Gongloe in his request said the call was aimed at promoting accountability and transparency and in keeping with the public right to know as enshrined in the Liberian constitution. 

The post was shared 13 times, had 43 reactions, and attracted many comments.


Verification: The reverse image search Yandex was used that showed similar images out of Liberia.

The content is widely shared on Instagram and other social media. It was posted in 2021 as one of the top houses designs.

Conclusion: False: the house is not in Liberia and not owned by President Weah as posted by the social media account.
