Liberia: Lewis Brown got the nerves!

Let Liberians sit down and joke with this thing while generations of “outclass” Liberians continue to be disrespected, disenfranchised and marginalized in their own Country. After initiating the massive division of our people, drugging our kids and turning them into killing machines, now they are being referred to as ignorant and uneducated 17 year-olds holding […]

probity, transparency, accountability and the federal government

    The news surrounding the Sanusi Lamido Sanusi’s suspension brings to mind, the shibboleth of the Nigerian federal government towards fighting corruption. Since the fourth republic, which began in 2009, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has been in the realms of affairs: Olusegun Obasanjo, Late Yar’Adua and the outgoing Goodluck Ebele Jonathan (GEJ). This […]

New frontlines for Liberian “war criminals” Part II

  Continue from last edition: “G.V fanatics” lash out at womanhood; used profanities as weapon in “debate”  Though it is not my intention to in any way  to add to the pains and insults already inflicted upon Massa Washington, neither do I take pleasure re-posting (in parts or whole), lewd comments by irresponsible men directed […]

Cyberspace: New frontlines for Liberian “war criminals”

A decade and half old brutal war that left nearly 300,000 dead and ruined whatever infrastructures left of the economic-deprived West African nation of Liberia, no doubt created deep mistrust and hatred between key war-actors and their victims now living abroad, mainly, the United States. Even though the bloodbath ended more than a decade ago, […]

How the media contributed to intolerance in today’s society

Journalism is one of the oldest professions in the world. For years, many people in society look to journalists because journalism is one of the noble professions in the entire world. I am sad to admit that some journalists are losing the respect they once had because journalism today is about business as usual. Some […]

Tough Choices Face President Sirleaf In 2014

  According to a recent World Bank report, Liberia is nation of over 3 million people without electricity with 0.58% of those living in the country having access to it, far below the regional average of 28.5% and possibly the lowest rate of access to public electricity in the world. In Monrovia, the country’s capital, electricity […]

why does peace continue to elude Liberia

After a  long sober reflection of the general circumstances of Liberia, I think this is the salient question at this point in time that must be looked at, reflected and acted upon if we are to truly move forward as a nation. Personally,  I think there are several issues and missteps at play here. We […]

The Curse of Leadership in Liberia: A Review of the Legislature in Post Conflict Liberia

  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 […]

Liberia, the emerging middleclass and tiny bits of tensions

He looks very frustrated behind the steering wheel of his SUV. He is making his way over the sandy road; crisscrossing between the people walking from the beach. There are many close escapes as his car skids in great speed and nearly out of control. Indeed when he reaches the junction he has angered enough […]

Another Round Of Disappointment

In my personal opinion, the main objective for political governance in post-war Liberia should be to secure democracy by instilling checks and balances, which have been absent throughout Liberia’s long history. Such political system “in a way” would limit or reduce the president or group of people’s power to no longer usurp so much power […]
