According to BBC, Liberian President, George Weah has been forced to work from his private resident due to the invasion of snakes in his office.

Snakes On A Mission To Overthrow Liberian President

The press secretary, Smith Toby reported that on Wednesday, two black snakes were noticed in the foreign affairs ministry building.

All the staff have been asked to stay away until the 22nd of April.

“It’s just to make sure that crawling and creeping things get fumigated from the building,” Mr Toby said.

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs hosts the office of the president, so it did an internal memo asking the staff to stay home while they do the fumigation,” he said.

The President’s office has been moved to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs since a fire in 2006 gutted the nearby presidential mansion.

“The snakes were never killed,” Mr Toby said. “There was a little hole somewhere [through which] they made their way back.”

Mr Toby said that fumigation of the Ministry has started on Friday.

“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,” he said.
