SPECIAL STATEMENT BY His Excellency George Manneh Weah, PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF LIBERIA

Sunday, August 2, 2020

My Fellow Liberians, like many  of you I am deeply concerned by the intemperate language, undue verbal provocations and acts of violence that have crept into our politics in the last several weeks. 

I am particularly outraged by the violent mob attacks on political leaders, notably, Alexander B. Cummings, Chairman of the Collaborating Political Parties and former Presidential Candidate of the Alternative National Congress, Hon. Yekeh Kolubah, Member of the House of Representatives, and their entourage, which happened on Thursday, July 30, in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County. 

As much as one can reasonably expect that, as we approach the senatorial elections towards the end of the year, political temperature may rise due to intense competition, it is important for all of us to note that in the exercise of our democratic rights in Liberia, violent acts and incendiary language have no place in our polity. Our collective past should make this obvious to us.  Read more...

Egypt tells Elon Musk its pyramids were not built by aliens

Egypt has invited billionaire Elon Musk to visit the country and see for himself that its famous pyramids were not built by aliens.

The SpaceX boss had tweeted what appeared to be support for conspiracy theorists who say aliens were involved in the colossal construction effort.

But Egypt's international co-operation minister does not want them taking any of the credit.

She says seeing the tombs of the pyramid builders would be the proof.

The tombs discovered in the 1990s are definitive evidence, experts say, that the magnificent structures were indeed built by ancient Egyptians. Read more...

Cummings, Kolubah Attacked in Zwedru

The political leader of the Alternative National Congress, Alexander Cummings, and Montserrado County District #10 Representative, Yekeh Kolubah, had no idea what was in store for them as they began a week-long tour in the Southeastern region of the country last week.

After being warmly welcome in Maryland and River Gee Counties, where the tour started, the two statesmen were greeted to a hostile reception early Thursday morning in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County, by a band of thuggish individuals who violently confronted the ANC delegation. Read more...

How American racism changed the map of Africa

The U.S. establishment of Liberia is emblematic of the pervasiveness of American anti-Blackness

American anti-Blackness is so pervasive that its impacts have devastated communities at home and abroad. The U.S. establishment of the West African nation of Liberia is a case in point.

From the late 18th to early 19th centuries, the U.S. government was obsessed with what it called “The Negro Problem.” Namely, how to manage the presence of the free population of African Americans, whom it had no desire to integrate into society as equal citizens.  

During this period, American leaders wrestled with the contradictions between the ideals of freedom, justice and equality — which drove the American Revolution — and the capitalist and white supremacist ideals that justified slavery and deemed Black people inferior, undesirable and dangerous.

Golden Gloves boxer killed on Staten Island was in town to celebrate Liberian independence

A Golden Gloves boxer shot to death in Staten Island came back to New York to celebrate Liberian Independence Day, and was shot at a party commemorating the historic event, his brother told the Daily News on Monday. Grashino Yancy, 32, was killed when a bullet hit his right leg...

Grashino Yancy, the 32-year-old former Daily News Golden Gloves competitor, was shot once in the leg while he was attending a neighborhood barbecue in Clifton late Saturday into early Sunday morning.

The Daily News reported his brother said Yancy was on Staten Island to celebrate Liberian Independence Day — disputing earlier reports that indicated the boxer was on the Island to mourn a loved ones death.

Yancy was shot in the right leg at approximately 12:40 a.m. and was found inside 260 Park Hill Ave., according to police. He was rushed to Staten Island University Hospital in Ocean Breeze, but was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

Despite closed borders, the US is still deporting Africans during the pandemic

While flights across Africa have grounded to a halt and many nations have shut their borders to fight the Covid-19 pandemic, one American agency has ignored directives to stop cross-border travel.

According to figures from the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the U.S. has deported at least 189 African nationals to their countries of origin from Mar. 1 to Jun. 20. The top destination countries for ICE deportations in Africa during the Covid-19 pandemic are the Democratic Republic of Congo (20), Liberia (20), Nigeria (20), Egypt (17), Ghana, (16), and Senegal (13).

HAPPY PRE-INDEPENDENCE DAY

Today I want to thank God for this country I love so much, the land of my forefathers. Oh, how I love Liberia. A land so rich with massive vegetation and precious minerals. Oh, how I love the sound of the ravishing ocean waves, the beautiful sunset on the Atlantic, the breath-taking waterfalls of kpatawee, the majestic Mount Nimba, the dazzling Mount Wologisi, the lovely Bong Range and the magnificent features of Lake Piso (fishermen’s lake). I also love the stunning beauty of the Sapo National Park, the gorgeous blue lake and the Grand Gola National Forest. Oh, how I love Liberia! Read more...
