Brownie Samukai, Musa Bility and Samuel Tweah: CDC&CPP, one and the same!

  By: Lawrence S. Tuah   The much presaged call from the opposition politician, Sen. Abraham Darius Dillion in the upper house of senate has been; to ensure integrity in the Legislature and the governance of the state; to reassure public trust and confidence through accountability and proper usage of public funds; and to institute the respect for the rule of Law through the application of democracy. Well, this is not just a call that has attracted Sen. Dillion alone, most Liberians are aware amidst the absence of these values,…

CoP also referred to the intervention of Liberia’s international partners at this 11th hour as “an intrusion” into the internal affairs of the state. “We do not object to intervention or intrusion, as much as we feel they are getting too much involved in our domestic affairs — that’s not necessarily a bad thing. But we hope that same level of intrusion will be made when it comes to the US$25 million [infusion]; that same level of intrusion will be made when it comes to other bread-and-butter issues like the L$16 billion; that same level of intrusion will be made when it comes to the attacks on Honorable Yekeh Kolubah, Senator Dillon, or Henry Costa or Mo Ali…” Op-ed 

My TAKE on Liberty Party, CPP and CoP integrity saga: Hypocrisy at the highest level!

By Abraham Doedeh Even though Senator Abraham Dillon has apologized, let me state again for the record, Mr. Dillon’s statement of using biblical scriptures to [justify corruption] is untimely and ill-thought but whatever way you put or justify it, it is FLAT out wrong to defend a bad character and actor like Musa Bility, who has a consistent history of criminal record nationally and internationally. Here’s my problem with the Dillon power play; prior to the convention Mr. Dillon had the singular most sacred responsibility to bring Kla Edward Toomey…

Darius Dillon the game is up: Change we can believe in or same old, same old?

Alfred Bombo Kiadii On yesterday, Darius Dillon took to Facebook to double down on his support for Musa Bility, the new chairperson of the Liberty Party. Despite claiming to be the self-styled ‘light’ at the legislature who is all for propriety in public service, Dillon enthusiastically defended his friend as he gyrated between throwing in biblical exegesis to suit his absurd special pleading while supplying arrogant defense to shut down dissent. His latest action, if it is any meter to measure his sincerity, shows he gives his friends a free…

Is Brumskine positioned to fight corruption?

Among the nearly two dozen presidential candidates vying for the Liberian presidency in 2017, the most critical critics of the ruling Unity Party are those candidates who either worked in the Unity Party government, embraced corrupt individuals in the Unity Party government or have publicly endorsed the Unity Party when it was most convenient for them. As the Liberian 2017 presidential campaign unfolds, one of those candidates leading the charge to, as they put it, “deny the Unity Party” a third term, is Charles Brumskine of the Liberty Party. It…

LFA Chief Bility Disqualification to Court of Arbitration

The Editor, FIFA’s Electoral Committee disqualified Musa Bility based on their findings and the “multitude of proceedings” that were brought against him! So what part of “multitude of proceedings” does Bility not understand? (Re “LFA Chief Bility Detests Disqualification to Court of Arbitration”) Sure, Bility is entitled to due process, but here are some of the “multitude of proceedings” brought against him: 1) There’s an on-going FBI investigation of bribery and corruption against FIFA officials, including Bility, who accepted bribe money to vote for Qatar to host the World Cup!.…

“FIFA Legacy of Corruption Under Blatter and Bility Pledge to End it”

The Editor, Does Musa Bility have the credibility to become FIFA’s president and clean up its corruption? The answer is a big fat NO! (Re “FIFA Legacy of Corruption Under Blatter and Bility Pledge to End it”) Look, FIFA is starving for a leader with good moral character, so how can you expect a ‘back-scratcher’ like Bility, to clean up its corruption, when much of Bility’s past is sketchy? 1) Does a man (Bility) who accepted bribe money for his vote to grant the World Cup to Qatar sounds someone…

Like FIFA’s Sepp Blater: LFA’s Musa Bility must be investigated

By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh Public corruption is a huge problem in Liberia, even in Liberian football. The Liberian Football Association (LFA), which is a part of the Liberian political, cultural and social landscape, is no exception regarding the issue of rampant corruption that enveloped the entire country over the years. Liberians (God, bless their forgiving, loving and tolerant hearts), in the midst of enormous suffering are aware of corruption and the gross inequality they’ve encountered and experienced in their own country. Liberians are also aware of the endless stories of corruption…

Liberia: “Mandingo Mafias” and & Fuel Monopoly At LPRC

By Harry Greaves, Jr. CPA I learned something new about the circumstances surrounding our recent fuel debacle. It was Aminata, not Srimex (my apologies to Musa Bility) that was given the exclusive right by LPRC management to bring in 6,500 tons of diesel (equivalent to 2 million gallons, about 2 weeks’ consumption). All other importers were forbidden to bring in any product until Aminata’s had landed. Problem is that Aminata’s cargo was supposed to have come in on January 10th. It is February 16th and no sign of that cargo.…
