    Michael Allison’s death and Ebola are lessons we supposed to learn by now

    By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh     As a reactionary group, Liberians are good at speaking after something happens. And when we speak, we don’t speak to find practical solutions to a problem that we can spearhead and solve, our utterances are reduced to empty talk and sheer ‘intellectualism’ to show that we are the most bookish […]

    We need a War Crimes Court in Liberia now

    By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh                               I saw the list, and I also read the comments of those concerned Liberians.

  • Robert Sirleaf’s frivolous and self-serving ‘lawsuit’

    Robert Sirleaf’s frivolous and self-serving ‘lawsuit’

    By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh                          Presidential son Robert Allen Sirleaf never had the Ebola virus, and doesn’t even know how it feels to have the disease in the Liberian society, and eventually be killed by it. The privileged Sirleaf doesn’t understand suffering, especially when you are a Liberian who has to live day in and day […]

    By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh                      Nearly three months after the 2014 mid-term senatorial election that elected hordes of senators for an insane nine-year term ended, Liberians are still reeling from the decisions of the non-independent National Elections Commission that elected those legislators.
