President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia is playing the Russian Roulette game; very dangerous, cunning, manipulative, while looking for a soft landing for her immunity from prosecution. Buyers beware of the "Ellen Curse" for it is contagious and deadly and a losing game/ The Ellen Curse propelled George Manneh Weah to victory in the 2014 Montserrado County senatorial race when Weah crushed Ellen's son Robert Sirleaf.
Simply Thinking Thoughts Liberian 22 In my thinking thoughts, I retrospect the trend in the history of Liberia and how we would soon be gliding into a peaceful smooth transition after a long haul in our history. I retrospect the divisiveness wrought by the Americo-Liberian supremacy doctrine that birthed confusion, malice, wars, and the resultant gross mistrust and lack of transparency that have become ours. Despite this retrospection, my pain was soothed by the mere fact that through all the vicissitudes or changes of our history, whether it was war or peaceful assembly, political filibustering or arm twisting; whether it was corruption and squandering of the nation’s wealth, nepotism or abuse of human rights or respect for rule of law, the Liberian Flag still waved gracefully and Flag Day was always the appointed day to celebrate the revered Lone Star Banner.
My fellow Liberians, as we go through this election season, I am reminded of the common thread that binds us all together. That thread is Liberia. Is Liberia working for Liberians? We need to de-politicize these critical issues and reflect and come in unison to find lasting solutions. As UNMIL departs from Liberia next year, it is left with every peace loving Liberian to foster activities that will promote an economic and social inclusive agenda regardless. We can Fix This, let Fix It.
Liberia is indeed striving towards peaceful general elections on October 10. Since the commencement of political campaigning early this month, there has not been a single complaint of political intimidation or open confrontation. This shows that the country has firmly gripped political tolerance as the bedrock for the development of all. Thanks to the collective efforts of everyone.
It is quite scaring, unfathomable and disturbing how people willfully and intentionally construct and peddle plain lies and sheer gossips with ease and pride in these days Liberia—I mean they do it fearlessly, wow!
