"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…

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…

Interestingly, the 2017 elections have come and gone and many are clinging on to the CDC victory as if it’s the triumph of their lives. Some of these very ones, like myself have always considered George Oppong Weah, grossly incompetent and unfit for the office of the President of the Republic of Liberia. But some of these people are somersaulting suddenly and are singing praises to Weah. You will not believe who they’re scapegoats, THE PROGRESSIVES! News 

The Liberian government is only interested in using Covid-19 to gain money–Tokpa

MONROVIA – The Director General of the National Public Health Institute of Liberia (NPHIL), Dr. Mosoka Fallah, has admitted to mismatching of data at the COVID-19 testing lab leading to the contradiction in the COVID-19 test result of Dr. Alaric Tokpah who was earlier declared negative for the virus but was actually positive. Dr. Tokpah, an educator and political activist received his clearance dated July 10, 2020 from NPHIL certifying him as negative after he went for voluntary testing on Wednesday, July 8. According to him, his results weren’t given…

I think the time has come for us, the PEOPLE OF LIBERIA, to join the rest of the “civilized” world to desecrate the symbols of Black subjugation. It will be unconscionable and abhorrent if we do not seize upon this awakening of America’s and Britain’s original sin – slavery and the continued institutionalization of racism — to remove the name of a slave master (James Monroe) from our capital city. This moment calls for a vigorous civil debate. I believe it is fitting and proper that WE THE PEOPLE OF LIBERIA change the name of our capital city. Op-ed 

The Name Monrovia (Capital Of Liberia) Should Be Changed: Monroe Was A Slaveholder

  OPEN LETTER TO THE PEOPLE OF THE REPUBLIC OF LIBERA   The Editor, Monrovia, the capital city of the Republic of Liberia, is named in honor of President James Monroe, the fifth president of the United States—and a slave owner. This honoring of a slave owner is a travesty to the autochthonous and should be an abomination to the children of the settlers (the Americo-Liberians). The 1810 census record shows that 49 enslaved individuals lived at Monroe’s Plantation in Highland, Virginia. This made Monroe one of the country’s largest…

As extreme hardship spirals as a result of economic paralysis, corruption, and bad governance under President Weah, CDC is going to lose more support (votes). Ahead of 2020 and 2023, there is a bitter price that CDC has to pay for increased job losses, rape, poor health, messy education, hunger, failed promises, public graft, etc. A lot of votes will be lost. This means that the CPP stands a far better chance to win both in 2020 and 2023 elections if they prefer winnable/sellable candidates and if they remain on a plinth of unhindered unity, honesty, maturity, and loyalty.

CDC Machiavellian Strategy Ahead of 2020 And 2023 Polls, How CPP Can Avert a Predatory Plot    

  By Martin K. N. Kollie In this brief analysis, I have exposed four (4) vicious strategies of CDC and advanced five (5) suggestions to CPP ahead of 2020 and 2023 polls in Liberia. Without Montserrado, CDC and Weah’s second term bid is a DEAD DREAM. Opposition Senator Abe Darius Dillon currently poses serious threat to CDC’s political lifespan. If the opposition wins Montserrado County for the second time in roll in this upcoming December’s senatorial election, it means that CDC is done for good. Weah and his idol worshippers…
