Article: Another Day Of Shame For Aging ECOWAS

Founded as the brainchild of President William V.S.Tubman of Liberia in 1964, as a counterweight to the previous CFA (Colonies Françaises d'Afrique) of 1945, but who never lived to see it come to full fruition in 1975, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), Read more...

Why America keeps turning its back on Haitian migrants

The Biden administration is continuing a long history of exclusionary policy against Haitian asylum seekers.

The images left many sickened and outraged: Border Patrol agents on horseback hounding Haitian migrants near the US-Mexico border, more than 14,000 of whom were camped under the Del Rio bridge on September 19. The uniformed men swung their long horse reins — which many interpreted as whips — to keep the migrants from crossing into Texas. In one photo, an agent grabbed the T-shirt of a migrant, while another shouted in a video, “Get out now! Back to Mexico!” Read more...

Ellen: Good governance requires fair share of resources

Former President Ellen Johnson – Sirleaf says good governance requires the proper management of public assets and resources through systems of transparency and accountability and a sharing of those benefits in manners that are fair, just and equitable.

Delivering a keynote address recently in Freetown, Sierra Leone at the Concord Times Summit 2021 on Good Governance and Post – Covid – 19 Inclusive Recovery, Mrs. Sirleaf said those who manage public space and enact public policies have a greater responsibility to ensure those who work in the private sector are equally assured of a predictable and business-friendly environment.

An insight into the Coordinated Effort by Crooked Politicians to Destroy Alexander B. Cummings; We Saw This Coming Years Ago

Fellow Liberians, we are bearing witness to a carefully coordinated effort by questionable characters within our political dispensation to impugn the character of Mr. Alexander B Cummings of the Alternative National Congress (ANC). While this behavior is prevalent within our body politics, we cannot all sit idle and allow this to be the norm.

Our nation has lost many reputable citizens because the most corrupt and immoral elements usually carry on these kinds of smear campaigns to silence our best and brightest. If Liberia must move forward, we need to erect a barricade to prevent these individuals from contaminating the rest of the population. Read more..

Claims that ANC Altered CPP Framework Document, 'False and Misleading’

... Says Cummings

The Alternative National Congress is denying allegations that the party illegally reworked the framework document of the Collaborating Political Parties, while lashing out at their accusers for such a ‘besmearing, coordinated and vicious attack’.

The CPP, through its chairperson. Senator Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence claimed that the infractions, procedural transgressions, and fraudulent inclines, as captured in its investigative findings, transpired “under and during the leadership of the ANC and its political leader, Alexander B. Cummings. Read more...

Who is President Paul Kagame of Rwanda?
(A Political Anathema, or Visionary African Leader?)

Well, that depends on whom you ask. His detractors might say that he is an enigmatic, abrasive and often repellent autocrat, who eliminated term limits in the Rwandan constitution to stay in power for as long as he wants. To others, he is the most consistent voice of the conscience of Africa of our time. He is an Afrocentric leader who implores other African leaders to be self reliant and do for themselves the little things that are doable without relying on foreign aids or donors to tell us what to do. He argues that picking up litter in the streets and cleaning our cities to improve our quality of life should not require donor nations to help us do that. And he graphically illustrates that point by deliberately creating traffic jams in his city of Kigali, when he abruptly brings his presidential motorcade to a full stop in the middle of traffic in order to pick up street litter himself.

Poem

Poetry: I am a Liberian

I am a Liberian.
My domain stretches from the coastal plains of Cape Palmas to the grand heights of Cape Mount; up the rocky hills of Montserrado.
I claim L.I.B. because she’s all mine!
From the mighty Wologisi, higher up the snow-capped peaks of Nimba – my navel strings are buried deep within her endless rainforest.
I am because Liberia is, Liberia is because I am!

I am a Liberian.
Not because I am a Belle, Kissi or Mandingo; but because I war dance as a Mano, Lorma and Bassa.
Oh yes, the Kpelle, Gio and Gola dabble in the traditions of our ancestors, But if you were to listen keenly, you will also feel the ancient rhythm of the Krahn, Grebo, Kru and the Gbandi.
Not too far in the distance, the Congua, Dei and Vai sing along in one accord!

I am a Liberian.
I belong to no tribe, yet I belong to them all – my Liberian fraternity is total!
We stand in absolute brotherhood because the love of liberty unites us here.
True, my allegiance is to no clan, no individual group or established “societies” but to All Hail, Liberia Hail.

I am a Liberian.
Allah, Jesus or our Ancestors may define my religion; yet my loyalty to Liberia remains indivisible.
Politics will not separate me from this one fact, nor will this Free Verse cover the entirety of my Liberian-ness.
Yes, the drumbeats of my village draw me closer, but my soul remains unequivocally clear in its proclamations: I am purely and unapologetically, Liberian.

By A. O. Dualu
