The One People Revolutionary Movement [OPRM] says it has uncovered a diabolical plan by the George Weah administration to arrest its leader Comrade Moncio Kpadeh. The leaked according to the OPRM is political and subversion, that has nothing to do with the breaking story The Parrot News website has published regarding circumstances surrounding the mysterious and tragic killing of Audit Chief Emmanuel Nyensua of the Internal Audit Agency or IAA which went viral recently. Rather than unleashing security agents to pursue Comrade Leader Moncio Kpadeh and Editor Julius Jaesen of the Parrot News website, a responsible and intelligent government would rather choose the path of litigation if it feels or believes the Parrot outlet has done anything transgressive to its image or those of its officials named in the story.

  With Ekena Wesley   Known for ceaselessly carrying shoulder-high coffins across Monrovia owing to what was perceived as bad governance, little did Liberians know that those who crowned themselves as true leaders were in fact charlatans, to say the least. For 12 years they carried caskets in the name of protesting against a so-called rotten system on the watch of former President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. Such is the deceptive trappings of bad politics. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the barrage of protests the CDC championed; and although the…

  By Martin K. N. Kollie The RIA catastrophe poses serious security, economic, and diplomatic risks to Liberia. This situation has turned into a national emergency. Therefore, I would like to help find solution and this is how.
