Liberian politics is not football however, and so he has failed twice so far in his quest for executive office. That said, one must never underestimate a candidate whose time has come. As far as forecasting "the end game" is concerned, all I can say is that while I mostly steer clear of ethnic stereotypes, sometimes, when they are positive and reflect my own personal experience, I don't mind sharing them. So here goes: the Kru are tough, strong, dynamic, energetic, and very, very intelligent people. Some of the cleverest, most gifted. intelligent, well spoken (in numerous languages) and "well read people" I have encountered in my life's journey so far have been members of the Kru ethnic group. I have also encountered Presidential candidate Weah.
All I can say is that he came across as very different to the other Kru I have met. However, who says "book" is everything. Indeed, some say now that "Boko" is "Haram". Furthermore, as events in the USA, UK and the Philippines have proven this year, it seems that we are globally firmly in an era where "experts" are disdained and all a candidate needs to do is appeal to the lowest common denominator. So this may just be his time. If that is the case then I say this to my fellow Liberians: "What will be will be". To cite one of my favourite Antillean intellectuals, Frantz Fanon, yet again: "Each generation, must out of relative obscurity, discover its mission, fulfill it or betray it".
