Girls from Liberia's Monrovia Academy playing out dream of a lifetime at USA Cup

Traveling to USA Cup widens eyes and world perspective of Liberian U15 team. 

Long before the U.S. women’s national soccer team started making headlines this summer at the World Cup, two key members made a trip to Liberia, planting seeds for a dream that played out this week at the USA Cup in Blaine.

In 2016, U.S. coach Jill Ellis and goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris were visiting Monrovia Academy, an institution that aims to use soccer and education in creating the “future leaders” of Liberia.

For the young girls at Monrovia Academy, Ellis and Harris became instant role models, not some faraway celebrities. When the Americans made their World Cup championship run this summer, while fighting for equal pay, the Liberian girls watched intently, and with a purpose. Read more...

EX-FINANCE MIN. AMARA KONNEH, ECOBANK, 46 OTHERS ON ASSETS PROBE AND RECOVERY LIST

Former Finance Minister in the Ellen Johnson Sirleaf government, Amara Konneh and some present and past officials as well as ECOBANK Liberia are listed among 46 other persons of interest by the Liberian government’s Asset Investigation, Restitution and Recovery Team (AIRReT).

This is contained in a statement released by the Team on Thursday, July 18,2019 and signed by its Chairman, Cllr. Arthur Johnson, one of the leading criminal lawyers currently practicing in Liberia.

Mr. Konneh is currently an official of the World Bank Africa division assigned in East Africa.

Also making of the list of persons of interest are former Defense and Justice Ministers, Brownie J. Samukai and Cllr. Benedict Sannoh.

In a broadcast address to the nation on May 29, 2019, President George Weah made another promise to fight corruption, with a threat to recover all monies stolen from the country dating back to the past ten years.

“In the next several days, my Government will begin the review of all General Auditing Commission audits over the past 10 years, and will commence legal actions against every person that is implicated in these audit reports.  Anyone found culpable will face the full force of the law. “ Read more...

Fortescue Eyes Liberia Opportunities But Says No Deals Signed

Fortescue Metals Group Ltd. has held talks in Liberia on opportunities in the West African nation, though disputes a government claim it’s already agreed to join a plan to upgrade the nation’s railways -- a key step to unlock iron ore riches in neighboring Guinea.

Andrew Forrest, the billionaire founder of the world’s No. 4 iron ore exporter, attended meetings in Liberia, including with President George Weah, to discuss philanthropic work “as well as potential future economic and development opportunities,” Chief Executive Officer Elizabeth Gaines said Thursday in a statement.
Talks were introductory and Perth-based Fortescue hasn’t entered into any specific commitments, according to Gaines. “Fortescue is not a party to any agreement with the Liberian government,” she said, adding the producer also doesn’t have any exploration tenements in West Africa. Read more....

Liberia today: The complex picture of a country in transition

Lydia Sackie still remembers the day she saw her parents being dragged away by Samuel Doe’s soldiers during Liberia’s first civil war, in the 1990s. It was the last time she saw them.

Winner Williams saw her parents die in the Ebola epidemic that killed nearly 5,000 people between 2014 and 2015. She was 10 then.

Today, Sackie, 26, and Williams, 14, live at an orphanage in Chicken Soup Factory, a small town outside of Liberia’s capital, Monrovia. Both are survivors of the trauma that has wounded this small West African country in recent decades. Read more...

Garbage Overflow In The Streets Of Monrovia: The Impact On Human Health And The Environment.

The world has a garbage crisis. All nations generate an estimated 1.3 billion tons of garbage annually, and that number is expected to grow in the coming years. The United States, China, Brazil, Japan, and Germany account for the largest proportion of garbage generated, according to an LA Times story written by Ann Simmons. Overpopulation, urbanization, industrialization, the lack of regular trash collection and disposal are key drivers for the surging garbage crisis.

Middle to high-income countries like China, Brazil, Japan, Germany, and the United States can manage their garbage through an efficient collection and disposal system, coupled with bioconversion technologies that produce fuel for electricity generation. These countries are also able to collect and dispose of 90% of their waste. Unlike low-income countries, many of which are in sub-Saharan Africa, less than 30% of their waste is collected and disposed of. More than 2/3 of their waste is openly dumped. Read more...

The long, sordid history behind Trump’s ‘go back’ to your country comments

When President Trump tweeted on Sunday that four congresswomen should “go back” to the countries they came from, he was writing the latest entry in a centuries-old story equating whiteness with American citizenship.

His attacks on the women, three of whom were born in the United States and one of whom is a naturalized citizen, echoed an idea that cropped up in the early days of the republic, informed the abolition movement and the Civil War, justified strict immigration quotas in the early 20th century, and forced Barack Obama, the first black president of the United States, to produce his birth certificate for public inspection.
