COL's Winston Tubman Endorsement Profoundly Disappointing

COL's Winston Tubman Endorsement Profoundly Disappointing

 I am not an Ellen supporter. I am not a Winston supporter, either. I did not support any of the candidates that vied for the Liberian presidency in 2011. I am however, for a candidate who genuinely supports democracy, the respect of the rule of law, and strives to build a livable and prosperous Liberia. […]

The Trouble With Our Post-War Liberian Politics

The Trouble With Our Post-War Liberian Politics

Once again, Liberia’s elite politicians are fussing over election results. They did it in 1985 following Doe’s military dictatorship; in 1997 after Taylor’s rebel gang held the nation hostage for eight years,and in 2005 under the patronage of the so-called International Community. We are witnessing it in 2011, yet under the patronizing, condescending influence of the […]

Ellen's Nobel Nightmare

Ellen's Nobel Nightmare

Most Liberians know by now that President Sirleaf is a Nobel laureate. I don’t think she and Leymah ever expected that honor, but it came anyway from Oslo when the Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded the 2011 Peace Prize to Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Leymah Gbowee, and the Yemeni peace activist, Tawakkul Karman.                             It is the first in […]
