    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

    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

    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 Elliptical Political Journey of Rev. Samuel B. Reeves, Jr

    By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh         I don’t know much about Rev. Samuel B. Reeves, Jr., the vice-presidential candidate who is on the ticket of presidential candidate Mills Jones of the Movement for Economic Empowerment (MOVEE). I got to know a little about Rev. Reeves just recently after his protective brother, Joe Reeves, (a former die-hard supporter […]

    “President” J. Emmanuel Nuquay? Lord, Help Liberia and the Liberian People

    By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh               J. Emmanuel Nuquay is the current Speaker of the Liberian House of Representatives. Mr. Nuquay is also the running mate of the current vice president Joseph Boakai, who is running to be the next president of Liberia. Nuquay could be President of Liberia. Scary, indeed. Before his selection as the […]

    Code of Conduct is Dead: Thanks to the Supreme Court of Liberia

    By Tewroh-Wehtoe Sungbeh           I am back! I took a well-deserved time off from writing and political punditry to briefly focus on self, which is necessary in these times to maintain my sanity. A lot has happened since, and Liberians as usual are either speaking out in support of or against those decisions that could […]

    The Last Thing Lawmakers Must Do – The Masses Are Watching Ahead of 2017 Election

    By Martin K. N. Kollie            Why give a 30-year tax holiday or tax break to a Lebanese hotel – the Farmington Hotel owned by Lebanese businessman George E. Abijaoudi when no Liberian-owned hotel has even received a tax holiday for 1 year or even 6 months? Why go into a US$59.5 million Pre-Financing Loan […]
