"Kroll has sought to obtain information from the CBL regarding the end recipient of the new bank notes (e.g. commercial banks, Liberian Ministries, etc.) however, the CBL has not been able to provide this information. Consequently, there is a risk that significant funds were (and remain) unaccounted for by the CBL, and Kroll therefore recommends that this matter merits further understanding." Op-ed 

Castrating just four (4) of Min. Samuel D. Tweah’s LIES – Is he a wholesaler of falsehood? 

By Martin K. N. Kollie We cannot sit here and allow Min. Samuel D. Tweah to distort the narrative, especially ahead of 2020 and 2023 polls. In just 30 months as Minister of Finance and Development Planning, Samuel D. Tweah, Jr. has told many LIES. And most partisans of CDC, including some senior officials of government, have become so comfortable with his usual LIES. Either because of their ignorance or because they just have to praise this “king” even though he is NAKED. It is all about survival (struggle for…

To sum it all, we must consolidate forces and revolt through the ballot or the bullet? This will be our own struggle not others. United front or no progress - there should be no such thing as middle ground or negotiation with reactionary forces. Thank about it. Onward to victory! Op-ed 

We will stand by the people and our country and not the fake opposition!

  By Robert Kpadeh The nefarious conduct we see some opposition folks displaying currently and the undercurrents obtaining within are not reassuring and do not guarantee any genuine intent for viable CHANGE as being heralded so loudly. It would seem that some are merely clamoring for political power to basically prioritize their vested socio-economic interests above the national interest rather than executing real essential change or departing from the perennial debauchery of the country — and putting the foremost emphasis on the people. May we state for the record that…

The Curse Of Leadership In Liberia: A Review Of The Legislature In Liberia

By S. Karweaye For any society to prosper, it needs to have a government to run its affairs. The government helps to sustain the social contract that binds every member of the state. Thus, the price that is paid for a state to be prosperous is for it to have an established government that enforces the social contract. Members of an ordered society, called a state, must pay taxes sufficient to carry out the functions assigned to the state. In Liberia, costs associated with the running of government have increased…

Cherbo Geeplay: Understanding his poetry and politics

By Dag Walker Thirteen years of civil conflict nearly destroyed the small West African nation of Liberia in the late 20th century. The period of reconstruction that followed in 2003 has surprisingly resulted in an explosion of local literature, some of it world-class in quality. A nation destroyed by war has suddenly produced writers of world-renown and hope for its literature lies on the horizon. “Usually wars or crises provide a new germination, if you will, like a forest that burns down and where new vegetation sprouts,” notes Liberian poet,…

Are We Bred to be Racist?  Part II

  By Wendy Bryce Synopsis of Part I  In Part I of my two-part essay, I explored the history of racism in the western world. I theorized that the white man’s drive for economic dominance and white cultural supremacy in the New World was used to enact genocide on aboriginal peoples, and then used to justify subjugating people of black African descent, and using them for forced labor to build an empire.    In part II, I will delve into the lasting effects of white supremacy, the great divide of…

Unarguably, there's a very critical few of our gullible generation who sees merit as the sincerest tool to morally fulfill the prophecy of man's indebtedness to transform his understanding and society. We have held sacred those deep Hegelian dialectics the, moral and spiritual decadence, wide-scale violence, economic hardships, complacency, stunning poverty, conflicts, a buckled education system, paralyzed health system, vilified cultural configuration, gullible youths, unprepared menfolk, and the monstrous intransigent vices of capitalism.

We have always wanted a better Liberia, where Liberians will live irrespective of their tribe, culture, race, tradition, and creed or political affiliation. We went to the houses of the grandeur political politicos including those who are in the status quo yet we couldn’t get the empirical answer we wanted to march in the people’s struggle. Nonetheless, we remain with the facts to ascertain our acceptance…

Open Letter: Take A Stand Now On Rape and WECC President Weah

      Dear Mr. President, I am filled with frustration, pain, anger, and buried in disappointment as I write to you this letter. I wish you could agree with me Mr. Weah, and accept that is hugely mind-boggling and massive embarrassment the catalogues of rape cases across Liberia and sadly you have said nothing about it since you came to power. Are you truly a father, our father, and our father? I have asked myself and indeed keep asking myself as to where are we heading as a country…

Plato, in his groundbreaking and immortal postulation of the Republic, once asked a fundamental question which today’s African voter must pay critical attention to, if we are to avoid this present scourge of Africa being misled by foreign-anointed and controlled puppet leaders. The question still stands today as it did 3000 years ago: given the analogy that a nation is a ship sailing on high tempestuous sea’s, who would we, the citizens or passengers aboard that ship want as our captain? Would we pick any man aboard the ship on the basis of his stardom or popularity as an entertainer or some other trade unrelated to sailing; or would we search for a man who is trained and skilled in the art of navigation on the high seas? Logically, we would definitely chose and pick the man knowledgeable and capable of executing the task of ship captain! Why, because we instinctively know that our hopes of arriving at our destiny in one peace depends on the caliber of the man in whom we have entrusted our fate! Op-ed 

Liberia has gone to the Dogs Under Footballer George Weah!!!

The Editor, 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 George Weah as new Liberian President and 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 people to celebrate Weah – a tired and retired footballer with…
