In you, the people have an exemplar of courage, a symbol of excellence, a highly respected figure, and an iconic Diva Doyen. Throughout the decades, you have never toyed with the ideas of amassing wealth at the expense of the disadvantaged masses of the people. Wealth without work or through exploitation has never been your fixation. Rather, you have used your meager money to educate people who you didn’t know and perhaps got no business in helping. But as a patriot who beams with that everlasting radiant of compassion, you do so without even mentioning it. Although some of those whom you helped to nurture and made your home a refuge for the hungry and sick, have abused your trust. Some of whom today make very mean comments about you. Notwithstanding, Miatta Fahnbulleh has never lost her appetite for social justice, compassion, and solidarity. Tributes 

Tribute: The Diva Doyen of Liberian Music Miatta Fahnulleh

  By A. Bombo Kiadii When the red-letter day of a stalwart of progressive values, an excellent human to the hilt, and an epitome of treasured values comes, a tsunami of people takes the time to weigh in and express how happy they are with the fantastic personality for the immaculate examples such person displays and does regularly. They trot a range of superlatives out to mark the ritual of the day. These appreciations, especially for a person who has displayed the highest qualities of human excellence, is a badge…

Interestingly, the 2017 elections have come and gone and many are clinging on to the CDC victory as if it’s the triumph of their lives. Some of these very ones, like myself have always considered George Oppong Weah, grossly incompetent and unfit for the office of the President of the Republic of Liberia. But some of these people are somersaulting suddenly and are singing praises to Weah. You will not believe who they’re scapegoats, THE PROGRESSIVES! Op-ed 

NDC Calls On Legislature To Oppose Weah’s State of Emergency

    For Immediate Release   The National Democratic Coalition (NDC) categorically opposes the state of emergency declared by President George Weah and is annoyed by the brutal and confusing ways in which the proclamation has been given effect by some state security forces and unformed criminals around the country. The NDC, therefore, calls on the legislature of the Republic of Liberia to oppose and revoke the state of emergency proclaimed by president Weah and uphold support for the national health emergency earlier declared under the public health law by…

Incumbents and aspirants have tried to spin this to their advantage. They drive into slum communities tossing bread to residents in large numbers, in fact, according to a journalist in Kenya, “Chaos erupted among residents of Kibera, the largest slum area in Kenya as residents fought to share packets of maize flour(cornmeal) and a few masks donated by a local politician” Festus Chuma said. As the Coronavirus continues to wreak havoc across the globe, let us not forget very soon that starvation has been an age-old problem in Africa. A survey published by the Guardian in 2019 estimated that nearly 60 million children in Africa are deprived of food. The paper further elaborated that one in every three African children are stunted and hunger accounts for almost all child death across the continent. Overall, it is visible to the blind and audible to the deaf that starvation is a force to reckon with during these confinements across the continent, and the least attempt to downplay this problem has the potential to complicate the fight against this global pandemic.

Starvation, Military Brutality and Ignorance might kill more Africans than COVID-19.

  By: John Saylay Singbae, II At the onset of Coronavirus in Wuhan China, to its rapid spread to Asia, Europe and America, many Africans around the world opined that Africans were immune to COVID-19. Some attributed this assertion to the fact that black people have melanin in their bodies, unlike other races. Conversely, these statements are not mere speculations, but medically inaccurate. In the past weeks, more and more African countries have confirmed numerous cases, deaths, and recoveries like their counterparts in Europe, America, and Asia. Now, Africa accounts…
