Review of “A Liberian Life: Memoir of an Academic and Former Minister of State Presidential Affairs” by D. Elwood Dunn

In full disclosure, I believe that Dr. D. Elwood Dunn is at least primus inter pares among Liberian scholars, arguably he is primus, for his substantive contribution to academia (imagine if he had been able to spend 35 years teaching Liberin university students), and for his scholarly engagements and publications about Liberia.

Chemicals used by Bea Mountain Mining Corp may be poisoning water in 10 Grand Cape Mount communities.

May 24, 2022: It has come to the attention of Africa Environmental Watch, Inc.

Liberia: Did CPP Investigative Report Lie on Cummings?

The CPP investigative report suffers from significant defects in its scope of review, analytical rigor, and conclusions and lacks the ability to withstand scrutiny provides no reliable substantiation for the allegations and wholly unsafe basis for any criminal prosecution,” — Omnia-Alaco Report 

The investigative report by the Collaborating Political Parties, which accused Alexander Cummings and two senior members of the Alternative National Congress of tampering with the framework document, has been deemed “wholly unreliable, shoddy and fundamentally flawed, both in terms of its process and its stated conclusions.”

Such damning stance was contained in a forensic investigation report by renowned British lawyer, Cherie Blair, whose international law firm, Omnia Strategy LLP, and the London-based investigations and intelligence firm, Alaco Limited, hired by Cummings to look into the ostensibly serious allegations of forgery leveled against him.

Why Boakai Distanced Himself from WhatsApp Chatroom in Ongoing Cummings Trial

MONROVIA – The WhatsApp Messenger App seems to have a key role to play in the ongoing trial of Alexander Cummings of the Alternative National Congress (ANC), his party chairman, Senator Daniel Natheen and Secretary-General Alloysius Gould. It all began with the omission of several portions of chats between July 2 to July 19 by the prosecution. The prosecution would later say it was inadvertent, but that was after a strong fight by the defense to have those chats reflected in the submitted evidence. The prosecution described the omission as “suppression of evidence”. Read more...

Unearned Praise

By: Leymah R. Gbowee

During a recent ceremony celebrating the life and legacy of Dr. Vartan Gregorian, a friend of his spoke about him getting a job and sitting with Vartan for advice. Vartan told him, “You have been given an excellent opportunity to head one of the most prominent philanthropic organizations. Remember, it is not your money, so don’t be intoxicated by unearned praise.

In today’s world, I have come to observe how people who are fortunate to serve sometimes get caught up in the dangerous trap of being intoxicated by power and the need to fuel that intoxication daily with undeserved praises. Read more...
