Truth is, the Sirleaf administration, and even President Sirleaf is indeed teetering on cowardice, hypocrisy and incompetence. The list is comprised of […]

    George Weah won, but are we serious about our politics or the status quo?

    By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh               George Manneh Oppong Weah finally won a senate seat in Montserrado County. He did not only crush his main rival, presidential son Robert A.

    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 […]

    A government-run and manipulated National Elections Commission is undemocratic

    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.

    Trumpeting the Good Side of America (A Tale of Two Countries)

    LACC’s blunder adds to nation’s woes

    By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh          I know from common sense that when a person is accused of a crime and is finally charged with that crime, prosecutors are expected to quickly put their case together to put the individual on trial for such alleged act.
