Is Brumskine positioned to fight corruption?

Among the nearly two dozen presidential candidates vying for the Liberian presidency in 2017, the most critical critics of the ruling Unity Party are those candidates who either worked in the Unity Party government, embraced corrupt individuals in the Unity Party government or have publicly endorsed the Unity Party when it was most convenient for them. As the Liberian 2017 presidential campaign unfolds, one of those candidates leading the charge to, as they put it, “deny the Unity Party” a third term, is Charles Brumskine of the Liberty Party. It…

So what part of “multitude of proceedings” does Bility not understand?

“FIFA Legacy of Corruption Under Blatter and Bility Pledge to End it”

The Editor, Does Musa Bility have the credibility to become FIFA’s president and clean up its corruption? The answer is a big fat NO! (Re “FIFA Legacy of Corruption Under Blatter and Bility Pledge to End it”) Look, FIFA is starving for a leader with good moral character, so how can you expect a ‘back-scratcher’ like Bility, to clean up its corruption, when much of Bility’s past is sketchy? 1) Does a man (Bility) who accepted bribe money for his vote to grant the World Cup to Qatar sounds someone…

Liberians are also aware of the endless stories of corruption…

Liberia: “Mandingo Mafias” and & Fuel Monopoly At LPRC

By Harry Greaves, Jr. CPA I learned something new about the circumstances surrounding our recent fuel debacle. It was Aminata, not Srimex (my apologies to Musa Bility) that was given the exclusive right by LPRC management to bring in 6,500 tons of diesel (equivalent to 2 million gallons, about 2 weeks’ consumption). All other importers were forbidden to bring in any product until Aminata’s had landed. Problem is that Aminata’s cargo was supposed to have come in on January 10th. It is February 16th and no sign of that cargo….
