Liberia's Unity Party expels President Johnson Sirleaf

In a disappointing closing chapter to her 12 years as the first elected female president in Africa, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is being expelled from her Unity Party.

    Liberia's Unity Party has expelled the outgoing president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf - accusing her of sabotaging the presidential campaign of Vice President Joseph Boakai.

    The party says she and four others did not support their candidate, lending their support instead to the opposition’s candidate, George Weah.

    Al Jazeera's Hannah Hoexter explains.
