Black Stars end World Cup qualifying campaign

  Edwin Gyasi’s first Ghana goal cancelled out Shikabala’s opener as the Black Stars ended their World Cup qualifying campaign with a draw against Egypt. The Pharaohs, who qualified for next summer’s showpiece in Russia with victory over Congo-Brazzaville, were without Mohamed Salah for their final qualifier, but took the lead in the 62nd minute of a scrappy contest.

Chief Kawor, Stop the Interference, Let the Supreme Court Do Its Work

  Recent pronouncement by Chief Zanzan Karwor, leader of the National Traditional Council of Chiefs and Elders, and their collaborators intending to interfere with the critical work before the National Elections Commission and the Supreme Court to adjudicate the allegations of irregularities and fraud that occurred during theOctober 10 elections are a travesty (mockery, charade).

George Weah’s Vice-Presidential: “Samson and Delilah Death Trap!”

  I had a terrible dream this morning, the likes of which I have never seen or had. In my dream I saw several Liberian Patriarchs and Matriarchs that were troubled by George Weah’s Vice-Presidential pick. They expressed serious concern and stated that his move, despite his popularity with the ordinary people and youth of Liberia, was a “recipe for renewed war in Liberia.” They termed it as a “Samson and Delilah death trap” that will indulge Liberians in a chaotic atmosphere that may once again destabilize the West African…
