    Alex Cummings’ Electoral Fraud Public Posture Too Little, Too Late

    By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh       Joseph N. Boakai and George Manneh Weah are heading for a November 8 runoff. This is not coming from me but from a watchful public, a public that is so tuned in to these Liberian elections that if it had been a paid pugilistic encounter, either one of the […]

    Congratulations, Bishop William BGK Harris, On Your Ordination: Well Done!

    By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh             We’ve had our publicized differences.

    Charles Brumskine is Wrong to Embrace Lahai Lasanah  (From our Archives)

    From Our Archives Saturday, November 25, 2008 By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh                I must confess I am one of those people who applauded the Liberian Legislature months ago when that body garnered the courage to suspend one of its own in the person of Isaac Nyenabo, then-President Pro-Tempore of the […]

    Don’t be Economical with the Truth, Otherwise, Fresh Voter Registration is Eminent

    By Josiah Flomo Joekai, Jr.            Liberia is at the crossroads and it is not a choice but an imperative for some of us who are conscientious to ensure that the right thing is done to consolidate the hard-earned peace that we currently enjoy.

  • What’s Wrong with Liberian Politics and the 2017 Presidential Candidates?

    What’s Wrong with Liberian Politics and the 2017 Presidential Candidates?

       By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh         I am sick of politics – Liberian politics for that matter.  Liberian politics is not only sickening and inferior, it is irritating and lacking substance. Except for the tabloid-like coverage of the presidential candidates from the dominant FrontPageAfrica, there are no debates between the presidential candidates, and there are no hard-hitting, […]

    Liberia’s Run-off Election Conundrum and Charles Brumskine’s Manipulative Supreme Court Challenge

    By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh          The November 7 presidential run-off between Boakai and Weah is off, at least for now; thanks to Charles Brumskine and the Liberian Supreme Court. It is a brief setback for the country, the candidates and their ardent supporters, and a victory for Brumskine not known to shy away […]

    Forget Boakai and Weah. Watch the Weah, Johnson and Taylor Movie Near You

    By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh                Liberian politics is scary. Liberian politics is deadly. The Liberian people are politically gullible and unserious. No debate between Boakai and Weah?

    Any of the Major Presidential Candidates Can Win the October 10 Election, Because Issues Are Not Important to the Liberian People

    By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh      “You kill my ma, you kill my pa. I will vote for you.” “Debate or no debate, I will vote for Weah.” These are the slogans from the Liberian electorates in 1997, and now in 2017; (20 years later) about the presidential candidacies of then-rebel-leader Charles Taylor and George Manneh […]
