Liberia Rape Law In the Female-led Government: How Did Liberian Women Benefit?

Liberia Rape Law In the Female-led Government: How Did Liberian Women Benefit?

By P. Nimely-Sie Tuon              Within days, the presidency of Liberia’s first woman president will officially come to an end, and many are wondering and maybe anxiously waiting as to how observers, particularly historians, will rate the presidency of Madam Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf. As compared to her male counterparts, the Sirleaf presidency […]

Two Bad Apples

Two Bad Apples

By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh         Liberians are having a field day – at least in terms of the coming of the on-and-off run-off presidential election scheduled for the 26th of December, the day after Christmas. Whether the event schedulers are right or wrong for choosing this celebratory day after, when Liberians are still […]

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

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!

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

By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh             We’ve had our publicized differences. But when it was about his recent ordination as Bishop of the International Christian Fellowship and his vision to preach the gospel to the world, I am with him.  As odd couples for decades traveling in our own stubborn lanes of […]

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

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. I am fully committed to this well-intentioned course and that […]

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, […]

Where is our moral outrage when George Weah, Prince Johnson and other Liberian politicians violate us and betray our trust?

Where is our moral outrage when George Weah, Prince Johnson and other Liberian politicians violate us and betray our trust?

By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh         George Manneh Weah, the celebrated former football star, Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) hero, Montserrado County Senator and perennial presidential candidate, made a startling revelation recently when he told the Liberian people that he spoke with the disgraced killer, con man and mastermind of the Liberian civil war, Charles Taylor, who […]

Quincy B: RIP

Quincy B: RIP

By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh                 I never met the late Quincy B who died at the age of 23 in a car accident, as he and his entourage left a Karoake event in downtown Monrovia. I am not familiar with his music either. My only familiarity with the late singer is the post-death video of him […]

Our Obsession with Liberian Presidential Politics and the 2017 Elections

Our Obsession with Liberian Presidential Politics and the 2017 Elections

By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh          In early March 2017, just days ago, a violent storm hit some parts of Liberia destroying homes and leaving countless Liberians homeless. The storms did not only destroyed homes and left countless people homeless in coastal communities such as Greenville, Sinoe County, Buchanan, Grand Bassa County and New Kru Town (as […]
