"JFK Saved My Life" Says Varney Sherman as he Donates $10,000.00 Towards a CT Scanner for the John F. Kennedy Medical Center

After returning from the United States of America following a successful brain surgery, Senator Varney Sherman of Grand Cape Mount County yesterday paid an appreciation visit to the administration of the John F. Kennedy Medical Center and launched a project to purchase a CT Scan machine for the hospital. Cllr. Sherman made an initial contribution of US$5,000 on behalf of his family, and his law firm, Sherman and Sherman, contributed an additional US$5,000, totaling US$10,000.

At a brief ceremony held at the John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital in Sinkor, Monrovia, Cllr. Sherman, accompanied by his wife Joyce, said his visit was to thank the hospital for the quality of care and services they provided him when he was taken there for treatment, after his collapse in the crowded Rotunda of the Capitol Building in May 2017.

Campaign Posters, who has the most?

It's campaign time in Liberia and the top 6 presidential candidates are displaying mega billboards, posters and fliers along major roadways, at popular intersections and on buildings and fences around the city.

Which Presidential candidate has the most number of campaign posters around the city? We didn't count, but Papa Urey is everywhere, next is Joe Boikai, followed by Weah Howard-Taylor, then Brumskine and Cummings, followed by Mills Jones.

Everyone is promising change, but few are outlining what their brand of change entails with the exception of Mills Jones, whose new mega billboard, displayed infront of MOVEE Campaign Headquarters, can best be described as a thesis directed at the youth.

While Weah Howard-Taylor is confusing people with their Change for Hope, Papa Urey says Let's get Liberia Working. Brumskine and Karnwea says Change is Coming. Cummings and Sulenteh says Real Change You Can Trust. Boikai says "Think Liberia, Love Liberia, Build Liberia" and Mills Jones other poster says "Poverty is not our destiny".

Sierra Leone mudslides: Urgent plea for help as death toll rises

Sierra Leone needs "urgent support" for thousands of people hit by mudslides and massive flooding in the capital, the country's president says.

Ernest Bai Koroma said entire communities had been wiped out and that the "devastation was overwhelming us".

Nearly 400 people have been killed and hundreds more are missing after muddy rubble swept through the Regent area near the capital, Freetown, on Monday.

A mass burial of victims is planned to free up space in mortuaries. Read more...

Freetown: A disaster waiting to happen?

Freetown is a city squeezing itself into the small space between the mountains and the sea, in a country with the highest annual rainfall in Africa.

In August - the height of the rainy season - an average of 539.9mm falls on Sierra Leone's capital.

So it comes as no surprise that Freetown is a city used to flooding.

But Monday's rain brought with it a disaster which left hundreds dead, and will no doubt be followed by finger-pointing and blame shifting.

Was it simply the effects of climate change and geography, or something more avoidable? Read more...

Impeachment on ‘Round table’, House Majority Leader Reveals

But Judiciary claims ‘immunity’

Rep. Numene Bartekwa, chairman of the majority bloc of the House of Representatives, has revealed that the Bill of Impeachment for the three Associate Justices of the Supreme Court is on the “round table” because of the intervention of religious, traditional and other civil society groups.

Speaking on a popular radio talk show, as well as in an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer yesterday, Bartekwa said the Ministry of Justice, the Liberia Council of Churches (LCC), the National Traditional Council of Liberia (NTCL) and some Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) are in a round table discussion with the House of Representatives to halt the impeachment proceedings.

Firestone To Suspend Rubber Purchasing for 2 Weeks

– Farmers Hopeful for Resumption

Firestone Rubber Plantation announced over the weekend that from August 10 through August 24, 2017, the company would suspend all rubber purchasing “due to the current extreme oversupply of our rubber inventory.”

The company however pledged to make every effort to minimize this interruption and will endeavor to resume purchasing before August 25th, if possible.

Small-holder farmers depend on the regular purchase of their rubber inventory — their main source of income — by Firestone, which in turn exports the commodity in bulk to customers abroad. Read more...
