By Amindeh Blaise Atabong Yaoundé, Cameroon Note:  Culled from Quartz Africa The protracted crisis in Cameroon’s English-speaking regions, which has largely grounded schools and courts in the affected areas since November 2016, and threatened tip into full-scale conflict, seems to have no end in sight.

By Sayma Syrenius Cephus Counselor-At-Law, Liberia I have been somewhat unable to understand what has been the source of parochialism in the psyche of most Liberians who preferred to be called “educated” but in truth are victims of their own limitations.

Liberia’s Democracy in Plummet: The Rogues VS the Riffraff

By Alfred P. B. Kiadii The gory clamoring of the elements of the rogue ruling Unity Party for a runoff and the disastrous trailing of the Party behind the riffraff Coalition for Democratic Change in the preliminary result announced by the criminal head of the National Elections Commission in Jerome Kokoyah is an indication of the fading and the sabbatical of hygiene in the government, and its gross insensitivity to address structural imbalances and solve social discards in the Republic.
