This is why they will rig elections and use brute force to consolidate power. This is a recipe for conflict as patriots will not sit idly for Weah and his henchmen to take ownership of Liberia, loot it vastly while the Liberian people languish in despair.

Hence, this becomes a tricky dilemma that requires leadership not brutality. Op-ed 

OPRM: in solidarity with marketeers of Waterside and poor masses

  For immediate release[PRESS]   (30th March 2020)- The One People Revolutionary Movement(OPRM) condemns in the highest term the report of the use of brute-force against the struggling poor marketeers at the waterside market on yesterday morning.
