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?

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 […]

The Boakai-Weah Presidential Runoff: Youth vs. Old Age and Wisdom? Bring It On

By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh         The Liberian legislative and presidential elections are over for now, at least, until November, when the much-anticipated second round runoff between Joseph N.

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 […]

Why Have Debates When the Liberian Presidential Candidates are not Debating?

Why Have Debates When the Liberian Presidential Candidates are not Debating?

By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh              I watched the second Liberian presidential debate. Truth is, it was boring. Like the first debate, I came out even more disappointed with the moderators who did not do a good job of presenting themselves as knowledgeable and thoroughly prepared to take on the task before […]

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 […]

Did the Liberian Presidential Candidates Discuss Any Issues During the Debate Worthy of Our Attention?

Did the Liberian Presidential Candidates Discuss Any Issues During the Debate Worthy of Our Attention?

By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh           “The Liberian presidential debate was like a baby taking his or her first step as a human being,” said the caller who couldn’t wait to discuss his observation of the debate. “Really?” I asked him as I listened attentively to the ‘political analyst,’ one of many in […]
