Commentary: Town Trap Isn’t For Rat Alone

The result of being silent during the passage of the unjust and discriminatory Code of Conduct law.

By: Rufus S. Berry II, MBA

Most Liberians were silent when the Code of Conduct - as we originally referred to it – ‘The Prevent Dr. Mills Jones from participating in the 2017 Presidential election’ law was enacted into law. Now, the short term vision meant to prevent former Central Bank Governor Mills Jones has now caught Mr. Harrison Karnwea, the vice standard bearer of the Liberty Party (LP), Ambassador Jeremiah Sulunteh, vice standard bearer of the Alternative National Congress (ANC) and other members of the executive branch.

A Solution When a Nation’s Schools Fail

BUCHANAN, Liberia — Imagine an elementary school where students show up, but teachers don’t. Where 100 students squeeze into a classroom but don’t get any books. Where teachers are sometimes illiterate and periodically abuse students. Where families pay under the table to get a “free” education yet students don’t learn to read. Read more...

President Sirleaf Moderates 1st National Revenue Symposium; LRA Challenged to Enforce Tax Compliance

Monrovia, Liberia: President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has moderated a one-day symposium organized by the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA). She informed the gathering that: “The real truth is Liberians do not pay taxes.” She acknowledged that the poor tax compliance culture in Liberia is a major impediment to achieving the national development agenda of the country.

She said about 142% of support to the national budget comes from extended sources as compared to the domestic flow of the revenue needed to support Liberia’s infrastructural development agenda. She noted that with the quick-changing environment, Liberians should adopt the system of being good tax payers.

According to an Executive Mansion release, President Sirleaf made the statement on Tuesday, July 18, 2017 while moderating a one-day a panel discussion at the National Revenue Symposium, which took place at the Monrovia City Hall held under the theme: “Domestic Revenue Mobilization.”

She acknowledged development partners who have been supporting Liberia’s fiscal budget for the Agenda for Transformation, but was quick to note that the environment is changing and such support may not continue. “So, that is why we should start paying our taxes,” the Liberian leader passionately called on Liberians.
