Is President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf The Deceiver in Chief?

Liberia’s most hated and controversial president, Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf By Melissa D. Kaita I have been an admirer of Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for years, and I had considered her a courageous, hardworking, smart and progressive individual in many respects, but it would be foolheartedly to have such level of admiration from a distance. It is obvious that the reasons for which I had admired the Liberian leader are, perhaps, the same reasons why many around the world do admire her as well.
