Who Is Advising President Weah?

No later did it turn out to be set up for journalists who were now trapped and prevented from leaving the yard or the party headquarters. They were mercilessly flogged, on instructions from some party officials, who instructed that both local and international journalists be flogged and while in the process, their electronic equipments were destroyed.

  By Emmanuel Saingbe TO BE SUCCESSFUL, PRESIDENT WEAH MUST AVOID THE PITFALLS OF THE PAST   As President of Liberia, the first thing George Manneh Weah should always keep in mind is  he does not own Liberia. That is, President Weah should always keep separate what belongs to him as a person and what belongs to Liberia as a nation. And this is why all patriotic Liberians should continue to demand that President Weah publicly declare his assets. President Weah should also bear in mind to avoid the abuse…

President Weah keeps 2005 promise of threats against Journalists

No later did it turn out to be set up for journalists who were now trapped and prevented from leaving the yard or the party headquarters. They were mercilessly flogged, on instructions from some party officials, who instructed that both local and international journalists be flogged and while in the process, their electronic equipments were destroyed.

  By: Staff writer Monrovia—Recently, a young journalist was mysteriously murdered, by unknown men, and I can’t help it, as thoughts of threats against journalists, made by then Ambassador George Oppong Weah, in 2005 keeps coming to mind as a flash back. During the campaign for the presidential runoff elections between the only two parties standing, CDC and UP, the then CDC standard bearer Mr. George Oppong Weah, went to Nimba County that year and gave his campaign address when he said; “To journalists, remember life is reciprocal, today is…

Liberia is Dying!

While President Weah has appointed most of his side friends to lucrative positions in the public sector, similarly, VP Jewel Howard Taylor has influenced the appointment of her family relations and her close associate, Mobutu V. Nyenpan to another lucrative position in the government. The government is fast turning into a club of friendship. Both VP Jewel Howard Taylor and President Weah are turning the new administration into a Club based on FRIENDSHIP.

Subtle whining is being echoed by the people in certain quarters of Monrovia in regards to the lip service of the “pro-poor” leadership to deliver public goods and limit public bad. Just in less than two months contradictions are rearing their ugly heads in a somewhat unorthodox way, exposing the change mantra as a façade. It is so surprising to some that the new leadership has speedily degenerated in less than two months, in a way which has further exposed the political farce. Fresh from the electoral process, the people…

Open Letter to PUL on the Media Climate in Liberia

President Weah were taking questions from reporters in the midst of dignitaries, I asked the visitor if the UN was willing to support efforts in Liberia to set up a war crimes court like it did in Sierra Leone

    Mr. Charles Cuffey President Press Union Of Liberia (PUL) Clay Street, Monrovia Liberia Dear Mr. Cuffy, In these last few weeks the media in Liberia have been challenged in the line of their duties like we’ve seen before under the dictatorships of Samuel Doe in the 1980s and Charles Taylor in the 1990s. What was unique about attacks on the media and journalists over those periods was the threats came directly from the men occupying the highest office in the land. Newspapers and radio stations were accused of…

Refussal to declare assets, two months in Pres. Weah building new mansion?

To me, this action on the part of the minister is an insult to the Liberian masses. The average Liberian lives on less than US$1.00 a day. McGill's loan to acquire a mansion, sends a bad message to everyone and solidifies the notion that the only quick way to get rich is working for government. This action on the part of the Minister of state undermines the "Pro-poor Agenda"

    Monrovia – Facing mounting questions about his reluctance to declare his assets or encourage newly-appointed members of his administration to do so, President George Manneh Weah is being heavily criticized in the wake of the demolition of his 9th Street home. Many Liberians have taken to social media to voice their anger that the President is undertaking a building project of his personal property without declaring his assets, especially in the backdrop of the government’s controversial pro-poor policy. Section 10.1 of the revised Code of Conduct referencing declaration…

The implication is that the pro-poor agenda will become imperiled

  Coming events, it is said, usually cast their shadows; if the Christmas will be good, you will tell from the eve. These are all common sayings, both here and abroad, with a lot of hidden meaning. President Weah in his maiden address to the nation following his assumption of office declared before a watching world that governance under his tenure, will be “pro-poor”. And as if to drive home the point, he announced a unilateral 25 percent cut in his salary and benefits and he called on other officials…

Gone to the dogs: George Weah will be the ultimate American puppet president!?

To me, this action on the part of the minister is an insult to the Liberian masses. The average Liberian lives on less than US$1.00 a day.

  Why Are Africans Good at Electing and Celebrating Bad Leaders? From the celebration of Mnangagwa as Zimbabwe’s white-farmers President, to the raucous ululating of Ramaphosa as ANC Leader and 2018 white-monopoly candidate, and now the praise heaped on George Weah as new Liberian President and American puppet; one wonders where and when this mass madness and celebration of the inept, corrupt and mediocre leaders will end? Weah therefore comes as no surprise; for in Africa, you can always count on the masses to choose unwisely! It is therefore criminal and utterly stupid of the Liberian…
