Donors’ money for Liberia’s agriculture diverted to agri-vultures

By Cllr. Sayma Syrenius Cephus There has been a tiresome, racist tendency perpetrated by foreign supremacists that Liberians cannot manage their development without costly so-called experts dressed up in NGO garb transacting that development for us. The endless litany of apparent ‘sustainable’ interventions which collapse ignominiously in NGO hands when the grantor donor funds dry out, have significantly eroded Liberians patience and thankfully, tempered our resolve to put this donor house of select NGO cards into order just in time for the new political dispensation and the growing excitement everywhere to get things right this time around for the...

All Who Condemned Colonialism in Africa Must Apologize To the West-Part I

Colonialism may not have been good, but certainly it was far better than the present level of corruption in Africa Those Who Condemned Colonialism in Africa in the Past Must Apologize To the West–Part I Unlike the Republic of Botswana where one hardly ever hears any distasteful and dreadful news stories about internal political rivalries, grafts, the abuse of power and rampant corruption, trump-up criminal charges against ‘perceived enemies’ of the state, and state organized killings, Africa is a classic example of a ‘hell paradise’—disease-plagued, extreme poverty, denial and nasty political brinkmanship reign! Pathetically, this is demonstrated by the...
