Liberia Is Dying

Subtle whining is being echoed by the people in certain quarters of Monrovia regarding the lip service of the “pro-poor” leadership to deliver public goods and limit public bad. In less than two months, contradictions are rearing their ugly heads in a somewhat unorthodox way, exposing the change mantra as a façade. It is so surprising to some that the new leadership has speedily disintegrated in less than two months, in a way which has further exposed the political farce. Fresh from the electoral process, the people of Liberia desperate for change, according to the country’s electoral body, the...

Acudetox is finding its place in a small but growing number of addiction treatment centers in the United States. Andres Demoya recently found himself sitting with needles sticking out of his ears.

By Leon M. Talery I have been in the vanguard of the struggle for the dignity of most of the people whose prosperity have been blurred and aspiration sapped by the venom of corruption and misrule orchestrated by elements in the ruling clique whose penchant for wealth far surpasses their interest in the people.

LIBERIA MARITIME INDUSTRY IS LIBERIA’S BEST ENGINE FOR GROWTH & EMPLOYMENT

MONROVIA – A Few years ago, two very valuable Liberian maritime experts, Charles N. Wolo and Christian G. Herbert, both my personal friends and heroes, lost their lives. They died working in professions that were not their calling and first choice.
