FOOTBALL : GEORGE WEAH - - AFRICAN FOOTBALL LEGEND - - ELECTED AS LIBERIA'S NEW PRESIDENT !
Football's magic transcends many boundaries.

Indeed.

In Liberia, not only a Football Legend will assume the highest office of the land, his election into power dawns a new page in his country's troubled history.

George Weah - - probably the greatest African footballer that ever lived - - is elected President of his native Liberia.

In a historic feat, George Weah will lead his country in its first democratic transfer of power in 74 years.

Liberia has been ravaged by civil wars and lawlessness which claimed the lives of more than a quarter of a million people in almost four decades.

George Weah @GeorgeWeahOff, now 51, - - the first and only African footballer to win the most prestigious Ballon d'Or and the FIFA World Player of the Year, and who was also named African Player of the Century - - ran for the Liberian presidency on a "change for hope" campaign.

"These elections are about the hopes and future of our country. No amount of fear tactics and intimidation will stop the Liberian people from realizing the change they truly desire", Weah once said on the campaign trail.

George Weah will officially be sworn in, as President of Liberia, on 22 January 2018.

He becomes only the third footballer to be elected head of state, in world history.
