As I see it, there is no other explanation for this government’s continuous intimidations of critics, but to force those it considers oppositions to be loyal followers; thereby creating a monolithic political society in which CDC’s grand vision of a one-party state will prevail. But Liberians have come a long way in pursuit of multiparty democracy and the notion that Liberia will be a one-party state is a dangerous foreplay in our political dialectics and a choice we are unwilling to stomach.

Unmasking former Chief Injustice Francis Saye Korkpor

By John H.T. Stewart Does Chief Injustice Francis Saye Korkpor really expect laurels from the public for his dismal and corrupt performance?A laundry list of his dirty deeds committed while in that noble office is too long to detail here.

ZANU PF takes Zimbabwe 360° back to Rhodesia – country ripe for new wave of nationalism and liberation struggle!

There is a popular saying, “nothing under the sun is completely new” – as, with the planets, solar systems, galaxies, and the universe, everything simply goes round and round in circles, repeating itself over and over again. In fact, history, as a record of human activity, appears to be the most telling of this phenomenon – as evidenced by the tendency of it replaying itself, even cleverly disguised as something new, especially for those who do not bother learning anything from their past. The past few weeks have been extremely…

As I sat keenly listening to Dr. Nelson outlining a number of reforms his administration is prepared to undertake, his power-packed inaugural address reawakened lost hope.
