He reportedly died of 'hypertension'- (Pressure), as stated by the Union on behalf of the family, The medical practitioners don't have to tell us that the brutality against Zenu also contributed to the 'hypertension' death.

How can we tell the Press Union of Liberia to avoid being a toothless organization

By Bettie Johnson Mbayo Must Liberian journalists say ‘Yes’ to the   Press Union-of Liberia statement issued yesterday on behalf of the Liberian journalist to the family [Zenu Miller‘s] who recently passed away? But let’s take it a little further, what if the Union had pressured the Government of Liberia to investigate fully the death of the journalist, and demanded that those who beat him up before his untimely death were probed, which in essence means bringing the culprits forward for prosecution if found liable? Why now? I am sure we…

As little the opportunities were, they took advantage of it. They fed us with their sweat. They went fishing, hunting and they were happy to work as cooks, house cleaners and securities for the powers that be. Out of that peanut income, they managed to provide life basic necessities for their children. It was never the most decent homes,…
