Liberia’s politics of uncertainty: Another of Sirleaf’s made conflict

Conflict and chaos, instead of governance, are the words on everyone’s lips these days in and outside of Liberia, and for good reason, too.  Building peace, reuniting the country and the people, and ensuring good governance are certainly not getting any easier, with the destructive activities and bad intentions of certain individuals coupled with widespread and inscrutable corruption, capital flight, surging food costs, and unsettling economic hardship and social uprisings showing their potential at every inch of the day in Liberia.

What did Ambassador Greenfield say about Liberian leaders?

L/R: President Sirleaf with her best friend, Amb. Linda Thomas Greenfield Ambassador Linda Thomas Greenfield made a good point in a recent speech at a program organized by the Friends of Liberia and the New York University (NYU) Washington, D.C. campus when she said: “Liberian leaders failed Liberia.” Retired Ambassador Greenfield is no stranger to Liberia. In fact, she is considered, by most Liberians, as one of their own––a beloved sister and friend. In fact, we are told that in some quarters of the Liberian capital Monrovia, and in other public arenas, Liberian children referred to her as “Aunty...
