Weah: “What was damaged during the 14 years of civil war,” he said, “cannot be fixed in a day’s time. This government is focused on rehabilitating Liberians whose lives were damaged. I want you not to join those who are undermining the country through protests. Join me to rebuild the country.” As part of his development plans, President Weah said the government was exerting efforts to change the lives of Liberians, by building concrete homes in place of the huts they have been living in over so many decades.

Exposing the Tyranny of Mr. Weah and his Reckless and Ruthless Government Officials

    The Editor,   Under this Weah regime, Liberia is a country where the competent are downsized and the incompetent are employed, which means the worst and the least qualified are in charge while our best and most qualified are sidelined largely due to politics. And those who have been employed don’t understand the magnitude, prominence, and potency of the positions they serve.  They are very oblivious and zero in understanding and suffer from a high level of dyslexia, brain injury, and semi-literacy. It is only under Mr. Weah…

Min. Samuel Tweah Must Account for the $US 24.8million National Road Fund 

    By: Cde. Jusu Kamara  Liberia has been reduced to a den of thievery and mass looting. The current leadership which is a basinet of deplorable career mafias and social delinquents is not only bereft of ethics that guide public administration but also very awful to accountability. This is why they have run the country for the last five years like overlords presiding over their fiefdom. They have transformed the national treasury into a personal purse and they deplete it slavishly at will. They carry on these vicious acts…

Anti-Corruption Day’s Message to the Liberian People

By Tiawan Saye Gongloe December 11th, 2022, marks international anti-corruption day. We ask all Liberians to take a moment to reflect on what corruption has done to the people of Liberia.

Corruption was the primary reason for the civil conflict that caused the death of over three hundred thousand Liberians. Under the Weah government, Liberia is moving backward due to high…

The two authoritative sources that I have just given do not make competence or integrity of relatives an exception to the definition. Therefore, those who are saying that the appointment of relatives who are competent and have integrity falls outside the definition of nepotism are wrong. Unless they write their own dictionaries, they have to accept the current definition of nepotism. Except for monarchies, like Kingdoms and empires, where countries are ruled by families, nepotism is wrong everywhere, especially in democratic countries such as ours. Nepotism is wrong because it is an abuse of power. It provides a situation where the best jobs in a country are occupied by relatives of public officials. It deprives better qualified citizens who are not relatives of public officials of opportunities for employment. A nepotistic leader promotes patronage, opportunism and sycophancy as avenues for employment. In an atmosphere where nepotism prevails, honest patriots and nationalists are deprived of opportunities for employment because they are not prepared to stoop so low. Nepotism therefore is a dangerous and very serious corrupt practice because it has the tendency to promote corruption and mass unemployment. Public Policy

Samuel Kofi Woods II on What can the media do to sustain democracy now and in the future

A Patriot’s Diary With Ekena Wesley If only the Liberian media would have an appreciation of the powerful realm they occupy in society, the resolve to effectively exert themselves amid the truism of nation-building would be a foregone conclusion.
