Liberia: A Clarion Call to the Citizens of Cape Mount to Redeem the County

By Alfred P.B. Kiadii Cape Mount will be written off, as the result of the elevation of slavish flunkies and parasitic imbeciles, who are poised to serve as the new leaders of the county. Such asymmetrical power structure will eventually lead the county down the slope of decadence, leaving the people to wallow in despair. This will stifle growth, sap the resilience of the people, and keep the county in the state of backwardness. In an epoch of global competitiveness when progressive societies are tapping on the expertise of the savvy and brightest to lead the task for transformation,...

‘Change for Hope’ or Change for Crooks?

By Alfred P. B. Kiadii The George M. Weah Government has shown early signs of the paralysis of political patronage which has imprisoned most governments in the annals of Liberian history. Just months in office, the festering wound of corruption is contaminating the public bureaucracy, thus having the tendency of dashing the hope of a people who thought that he would have replicated his sublime performance on the soccer pitch in governance, which will lead to a paradigm shift under the so-called ‘pro-poor government’ of the reactionary and ultra-right leaning Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC). According to Liberia’s National...

Mayor Koijee Dresses like a Wall Street Plunderer, as Monrovia City Government Implodes in Disarray

Monrovia City Mayor Jefferson T. Koijee By Alfred P.B. Kiadii Against all standards of merit but in conformity with the afterthought of so-called “struggle heroes and heroines being rewarded with lucrative jobs,” President George M. Weah, in his quest to place mediocrity at the height of the public sector, appointed Jefferson Koijee to the coveted position of mayor of the metropolitan city of Monrovia. Amidst mounting criticisms from the enlightened voices in the Republic about said misnomer, forces of reaction within the ranks of the reactionary and revisionist Coalition for Democratic Change (CD), bombarded social media with a defeatist,...

The Weah-led Regime Shows Early Signs of Clampdown Due to the Lack of Policy Direction

‘My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.’ Without knowledge ignorance reigns When political power is given to tabulae rasae and political jesters, the tendency to misuse such power through the selective elimination and arrest of critics of the ruling establishment are hatched in full swing. Such reprisal actions of the government against its critics have been used by decadent regimes to purge ‘voices of protest.’ A government with no strategic focus is always nervous about criticism from either the public or political opponents. Previous regimes in Liberia have a well-documented history of a state-sponsored clampdown against political opponents and citizens...

Smoking Gun: Why Former president Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf Traveled to Beirut After her Tenure

Former Liberian president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. The first African elected woman president who left her country broke by empowering Lebanese businessmen and other foreign nationals.  Political intrigues are not new to Liberian politics; they are as old as the age of this republic. And it became very visible and a strategy for outsmarting opponents in the early days of the republic. Edward James Roye was a victim of such callous maneuvering. Even during the misrule of the True Whig Party, Williams V.S. Tubman effectively used this sadistic strategy to embarrass or eliminate opponents who were critical of his misrule...
