PHOTO NOT Accord : As I am not a member of UP, I was invited as a Statesperson

    by Togba-Nah Tipoteh   Some concerns in the public space about my presence at the National Consultative Assembly of the National Executive Committee of Unity Party (UP) have given me this opportunity to explain the meaning of a public servant at the outset of this Commentary. A public servant is someone who is duty-bound to listen to everybody and do what people do to help not onesef but to help others in their struggle for sustainable improvements in their living conditions. The public servant serves not himself or…

Open Letter: Liberian History Project Misguided Interview With Togbah Na Tipoteh

By Darlington Collins Brother Duku Jallah, I just watched your nearly 30 minutes interview with Dr. Togba-Nah Tipoteh and I must say I am not quite impressed with your understanding of historical reckoning. Your questions were all over the place and at some point misguided, thereby infusing your personal feelings or opinions about the progressive class into your questionnaires while leaving your viewers with second thoughts about your presentation. You assume the role of the agent provocateur rather than an interviewer about these historical events that needed sober-minded introspection.  In…

The Movement for Justice in Africa, popularly known as MOJA, turned forty-seventh last week, yet the only reminder was a tiny post with a picture of the well-known Taiwon Gongloe, its current chairman – the picture attracted more readers, even me. But forty years is a truly long time, however, the concatenation of outrageous fortunes that has landed the Movement for Justice in Africa and its coterie of once celebrated progressives a sad afterthought in Liberian politics.

Liberia’s Progressive Forerunner, MOJA , At 47 And The Day Passed Like A Whimper

    By Worlea-Saywah Dunah The Movement for Justice in Africa, popularly known as MOJA, turned forty-seventh last week, yet the only reminder was a tiny post with a picture of the well-known Taiwon Gongloe, its current chairman – the picture attracted more readers, even me. But forty years is a truly long time, however, the concatenation of outrageous fortunes that has landed the Movement for Justice in Africa and its coterie of once celebrated progressives a sad afterthought in Liberian politics. It saddened my heart like David lamenting King…

They have not changed! They will not change!! The people know them and thus their frustration is increased because they know that these men are searching for profit in rivers of blood and piles of skulls. They understand that these men, no matter whom they serve, are nothing but vultures, eager to pick at the empty carcass of the nation. These men do not have any social conscience; they do not have any loyalty to the people or to the nation, and like their counterparts in the past history of our Republic, they are willing and ready to trade the flag and our national heritage.

The historical revisionists Vs. the progressive class

    The Editor,   The historical revisionists, many of whom are remnants of the outmoded, True Whig Party oligarchy think they have succeeded in laying blame on those we call the “Progressives” of Liberia. We often hear them say, Liberia was OK until April 14, 1979 when PAL and MOJA called for a rice riot. But what these right-wing reactionaries deliberately failed to tell our people is that April 14, 1979 was a necessity that happened through accident. Suffice this to mean that April 14, 1979 happened not because…
