Calls for War Crimes Justice in Liberia goes global; Weah Administration at Crossroad on standing with War Crime Victims or War Crime Perpetrators
The United States government, the European Union, and countries around the world now stand with victims of civil wars-era crimes in Liberia. They are openly signaling their support and pressuring George Weah’s administration for a war crimes court to deliver impartial justice and to foster durable peace and stability in the country according to eight Liberian and international organizations.
As a result of this global pressure and signaling, US Ambassador-at-Large for Global Criminal Justice Beth Van Schaack visited Liberia in October 2022; Paris, the “City of Light” opened War Crime case against a former Liberian rebel commander Kunti Kamara, United Kingdom Metropolitan Police arrested a man over alleged war crimes committed in the Liberian, Switzerland prosecuted the case against 46-year-old Alieu Kosiah, Belgium investigates the role of alleged rebel commander Martina Johnson and the European Network for investigation and prosecution of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes is investigating the case against a high-profile Liberian government official working in Brussels who name appeared on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission list.
According to data from Liberia, the groups, standing ground for Justice and increasing domestic pressure on the George Weah administration are; Advocates for Human Rights, Center for Justice and Accountability, Civitas Maxima, Civil Society Human Rights Advocacy Platform of Liberia, Global Justice and Research Project, Human Rights Watch, the Secretariat for the Establishment of a War Crimes Court in Liberia, and Transitional Justice Working Group in Liberia.��Liberia has yet to prosecut the listed TRC War Crime Criminals for the grave crimes committed during its two armed conflicts and has yet to establish a war crimes court that the country’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission recommended in 2009. ��“The Liberian people have waited too long for justice and accountability for abuses suffered during the civil wars,” said Adama Dempster of the Civil Society Human Rights Advocacy Platform of Liberia and the Secretariat for the Establishment of a War Crimes Court in Liberia. “The US government has the opportunity to stand with victims of atrocities committed in Liberia’s civil wars by assisting Liberia in establishing a war crimes court.”��During the armed conflicts from 1989-1996 and 1999-2003, Liberians suffered widespread violations of international human rights and humanitarian law such as mass killings, r**e and other forms of sexual violence, summary executions, mutilation and torture, and the use of child combatants.��The US government has played a pivotal role in fostering accountability in West Africa, including in the landmark trials of former Liberian President Charles Taylor by the Sierra Leone Special Court and of the former Chadian President Hissène Habré in Senegal that should be replicated in Liberia, the groups said.��Criminal accountability for civil wars-era atrocities has widespread support in Liberia, the groups said. Individuals, families of the victims, and activists have marched in the streets of Monrovia multiple times in recent years calling for accountability and demanding the creation of a war crimes court.��The Liberian Bar Association added its support for a war crimes court in April 2019. The Traditional Chiefs Council and the National Economic Dialogue, attended by 350 Liberians, including members of the government, political parties, youth, and civil society, backed establishment of a war crimes court in September 2019. In addition, more than 50 members of Liberia’s House of Representatives have endorsed a resolution backing a war crimes court for Liberia.��“Accountability for Liberia’s past crimes has been limited to cases abroad,” said Hassan Bility of the Global Justice and Research Project and the Secretariat for the Establishment of a War Crimes Court in Liberia. “Liberia needs a dedicated war crimes court so that victims have greater access to justice for the crimes committed against them and a fuller scope of perpetrators can be held to account.”

LUCKY PHILIP DUBE was born into a Zulu family at a farm on the outskirts of Ermelo, a small town some 90 miles west of Johannesburg. His father abandoned the family before he was born, but his mother named him Lucky because she was grateful for a son, particularly as her first-born had died in infancy. Dire poverty forced her to search for work in Johannesburg, leaving Lucky and his older sister Thandi with their grandmother, who raised them with cousins and local children. Food was often extremely scarce, with soup made from sheep's droppings sometimes the only form of sustenance. During his teens, Lucky Dube lodged with an alcoholic uncle in the town of Standerton and attended Jan Rell high school, where he led a popular vocal choir and attempted to form a band. In 1982, his aunt Eleni brought him to Madadeni, a township on the outskirts of Newcastle, where Dube joined the Love Brothers, a group performing in the urban mbqanga style that merged elements of soul and pop with traditional Zulu music. The group had been founded by Dube's cousin, Richard Siluma, who worked in Johannesburg for Teal Records, which ultimately became part of Gallo, South Africa's largest recording company. Siluma took on the role of manager and arranged the group's debut recordings, which were initially credited to Lucky Dube and the Supersoul. Luckydube performed mbqanga for the next few years, releasing five albums in the style, but a longstanding love of reggae and a fascination with the Rastafari lifestyle resulted in the four-song reggae EP, Rasta Never Die (1985). Although it was a critical failure - and drew ire from his record label for the change of direction - Dube persevered, releasing Think About the Children the following year, as well as a non-reggae Afrikaans satire entitled Help My Krap (which roughly translates as Help Me Scratch). The breakthrough came in 1987 with Slave, a hugely popular reggae album whose title track warned of the perils of alcoholism. It made Dube a household name in South Africa and sold 500,000 copies worldwide following a distribution deal with the New Jersey-based Shanachie Records. The 1989 set, Prisoner, reportedly gained double-platinum status in South Africa in less than a week, resulting in Dube's first live dates in Europe and the US. In 1991, he became the first South African artist to appear at Jamaica's , his captivating performance resulting in a headline spot for the international segment of the following year's event. His 1993 album Victim was a million-seller and, two years later, Dube became the first South African to have an album handled by Motown. He last album was Respect, released in 2007. Dube's dreadlocks and espousal of Jah lent him the air of a Rastafarian, yet he was raised in the Zionist Christian Church, and did not consider himself a Rasta in the traditional sense, despite embracing aspects of the faith, such as vegetarianism. He was also a lifelong teetotaller who did not smoke either ma*****na or ci******es, making him something of an anomaly within the reggae world. Dube never let stardom go to his head, preferring to spend much of his time on his farm in KwaZulu-Natal. He is survived by his wife Zanele, their three-month old baby, Melokuhle, and his other children, Sibongile, Nonkululeko, Thokozani, Laura, Siyanda and Philani .

Cameroon simply meant everything for them
17 years ago, Cameroon failed to qualify for the world cup after being held at the fortress Amadou Ahidjo stadium by Egypt in a 1 all tie
The indomitable lions simply needed a win to qualify as a draw wouldn't suffice giving Ivory Coast was already winning in Abidjan
Cameroonians were confident and why wouldn't they. They haven't lost a match at that stadium in more than a generation
At the final minutes of the game, the referee awarded a penalty to Cameroon
Informed striker Samuel Eto'o looked at the 70,000 man crowd at the stadium and think of the other 22 million watching at home and standing at an attention to honor the penalty, he knew his entire career and image back home hangs on that penalty kick and he turned it down
Song, the corageous Defender and captain didn't have the courage for it and Geremi Njitap our midfield maestro was on suspension, watching from the stands
As everyone walked back and the crowd stood in historic silence, Pierre Wome Nlend with goose bumps mastered the ancestral courage and walked up to the task, someone had to do it , he took a deep breath, looked at the crowd and stationed the ball at the penalty spot
At the sound of the whistle, he took a walk back, looked up at the crowd again and then moved to the ball and kicked
He beat the Egyptian goalkeeper but the ball failed to beat the woodwork
It was the last kick of the game and Cameroon has just failed to qualify for the world cup. Celebration in Abidjan and anger and rage in Yaounde
The remaining players broke down in tears as if their lives depended on the goal
The population set the house of Wome Nlend ablaze and his international career all but came to an end.

Instead of Liberians apologizing to Cassava and Gari, Eddoes and plantains, let us humbly apologize to the Tolbert Family for the unnecessary killing of the man of vision, William R. Tolbert who saw this crisis long ago and decided to remedy the situation which led to the bloody rice riot of 1979.
Our next task is to work towards growing what we eat Do you all see why I talked about fly by night politicians and influencer who can’t read and understand?
They misled an entire nation and caused the 1979 rice riot. Where are they? Why aren’t they speaking out? The blood of this nation is on their hands. They are here and we know them!
The reason they rioted is currently before us. Should we blame the head for the global situation on the price of rice?
I do not think so. Tolbert I am sincerely sorry, if they don’t want to say Sorry……….
Liberians will balance on Rice 🌾 issue and grow what they eat. Bob Willie you were right yesterday! RIP

1---The Liberian Senate falls prey to huge public outcry after signing the controversial Pension and Benefits Scheme, as Senators endorsed a motion to recall the bill from the House of Representatives
Our Legislative Reporter said the bill seeks to give back 50% of all members of the Legislature, the Chief Justice and Associate Justices of the Supreme Court, President and Vice President's salaries to themselves when retired from office.
The legislative instrument when passed by both Houses of the Legislature, will give 25% of those officials' salaries payment to their family members upon their demise.
On August 30, 2022, about 23 members of the Liberian Senate, including Montserrado County Senator Abraham Darius Dillon and Grand Bassa County Senator Nyonblee Karnga-Lawrence signed the passing of the bill.
Discussing the public's concern about the bill on Thursday, Senator Dillon claimed that at no time did the Senate pass such bill, adding that draft of the bill is not what in the public.
Also speaking, Sinoe County Senator, Milton Teahjay urged his colleagues to learn from experiences from previous legislators.
He said what in the public is not a bill passed by the Senate, noting that there is nothing absolutely wrong with passing Pension Bill because it is in the interest of the citizens, not legislators.
At the same time, Bomi County Senator, Edwin Melvin Snowe has blamed some of his colleagues for always citing the voluminous nature of every document being read by the Senate Secretary.
Our Reporter however indicated that following the argument, Montserrado County Senator, Saah Joseph who also signed the bill requested a motion to recall the bill from the HOR.
The motion was then made by Senator Edwin Melvin Snowe, stating that the Senate plenary will begin a new debate about the controversial Pension and Benefits Scheme.
2--Bana FM captures live on camera opposition Representatives, Rustonlyn Dennis and Moima Briggs-Mensiah facebooking in open session during plenary’s deliberation on Thursday
Our reporter said the action by the Montserrado County lawmakers violates rule 2.1 of the house’s rules and procedures of the House of Representatives.
Rule 2.1 of the house’s rules and procedures of the House of Representatives says; daily sessions of the House of Representatives shall be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays of each week as which time issues of national concerns shall be discussed.
Our reporter said while their colleagues were seriously deliberating on a proposed Act adopting an Integrated Pensions and Benefits Scheme for certain categories of official of government of Liberia upon leaving power, Representatives Dennis and Briggs-Mensiah were seen face booking live in open session.
3---Montserrado County District #15 Representative, Abu Kamara describes as evil and devilish a legislation seeking 50% of salary payment to members of the three branches of government upon retirement
Members of the Liberian Senate have voted on a legislation seeking 50% salary payment to all lawmakers, the Chief Justice and all Associate Justices of the Supreme Court, the President and Vice President upon their retirement.
The senators also voted on a law that seeks to provide 25% of their salary payment to their families upon their death.
Montserrado County Senator Abraham Darius Dillon a member on the Judiciary Committee of the Liberian Senate, is the lead campaigner of this law.
Dillon is among those lawmakers who affixed their signatures to ensuring that such legislation is agreed upon by the Senate and forwarded to the House of Representatives for concurrence.
But phoning in on the Thursday, September 8, 2022 edition of the “New Liberia” program on Bana FM, the CDC Lawmaker said the proposed law is not in the interest of the country.
He vowed never to affix his signature to such bill, thus describing it as evil and devilish.
Representative Kamara has however promised to lobby with his colleagues to ensure that such law is rejected and should never reach the office of the President for printing into a handbill.

1.... President George Weah's Chief of Protocols, Nora Finda Bundoo describes the over 2000 concerned widows of the Armed Forces of Liberia as fake widows whose aim is to destroy her character
She vowed not to work with members of the concerned Widows of the AFL, thus warning them to stop saying lies about her.
Her assertion was in response to a recent statement made by members of the Concerned Widows and Children of the Armed Forces of Liberia.
In their statement, the widows threatened to lay down their lives through an unspecified action if national government fails to pay their benefits.
The group also termed Madam Bundoo as a person who cannot be trusted anymore, alleging that she does not seek their interest.
Amb. Bundoo was speaking to over 300 hundred women and children whom she considered as the real widows of the AFL over the weekend.
Finda Bundoo called on members of the concerned AFL widows to return all the monies they have been receiving in the name of widows, as well as the land deal given to them.
She noted that despite the lies about her, she has nothing bad against the concerned AFL widows.
The President's Chief of Protocols also promised to provide food for them on the day of their planned protest.
She has however warned members of the concerned Widows of the AFL to stop collecting money against the name of her real widows.
Meanwhile, the over 300 hundred AFL widows who have been recognized by Madam Bundoo have accused the leadership of the concerned AFL widows of illegally collecting money from them.
They have at the same time distanced themselves from the recent statement made by the concerned AFL widows.
The group of AFL widows are also appealing to President Weah to provide them their just benefits
2.... The Liberia National Police clarifies that its recent decision to provide hot meals for protesting students of the University of Liberia is in line with international standards
The campus-based Students Unification Party from the University of Liberia, staged a Flag Day demonstration styled "Fix the Country".
During the protest, the Liberia National Police served the protesters with hot meals.
The LNP's move has become the ‘talk of the town’ after the riot Police were seen distributing ‘hot’ meals to protesters.
According to police Inspector General, Patrick Sudue, the LNP's action was in keeping with international standards.
He added that having been the first Inspector General of the country and trained by the United Nations, it was important to interact and ensure safety during the protest.
He told the BBC during the weekend that gone are the days when protesters thought that state security will use force during protestation.
3.... Monrovia City Mayor, Jefferson Koijee strongly opposes the call by top opposition politicians and other citizens for President Weah to dismiss the three sanctioned government officials for their alleged act of public corruption
The United States Treasury Department recently sanctioned Minister of State Nathaniel Mcgill, Solicitor General Sayma Syrenius Cephus and National Port Authority Managing Director, Bill Twehway for their alleged involvement into public corruption.
Speaking as guest at the famous Center for the Exchange of Intellectual Opinion in Monrovia during the weekend, Mayor Koijee welcomed President George Weah's administrative decision taken against the three statesmen.
He believes that the Liberian leader's action indicates his stance against corruption in his government.
The tough-talking youth leader further indicated that it is laudable for the three officials to have been turned over for investigation so as to exonerate themselves from the allegations.
Koijee who is also the Chair for the Revolutionary National Youth League of the Coalition for Democratic Change further recognized the United States as Liberia's strategic ally for its endless support.
The CDC-RNYL's Chair at the same time applauds the US Government's latest decision to impose sanctions on three top officials of the Weah-Taylor regime.
However, Mayor Koijee stressed that the sanctions imposed on the officials will not deter members of the CDC from vigorously engaging citizens across the country ahead of the 2023 elections.
According to him, CDCians are more determined and prepared to give President George Weah a resounding victory in the presidential and representative elections in 2023.
Meanwhile, Mayor Koijee has termed as false and misleading speculations in the public that he was recently invited by the US Government to be investigated for crimes he allegedly committed against humanity.
The Monrovia City Mayor also challenged anyone that will make available evidence to the claims, clarifying that he had been involved in any form human rights violation.

The New Election Law:
Implementing McGill’s Mandate?
On February 28, 2021, the Hot Pepper published a story, headlined, “No Deal—NEC Boss Tells Min. McGill”. In that story, the paper reported that the Chairperson of the National Elections Commission (NEC), Davidetta Browne-Lansanah, had accused President George M. Weah of sending Minister McGill to her to do a staff shake-up to make way for CDC die-hard partisans in key, strategic NEC positions and, in return, her court case would fade away; otherwise, she could expect to find herself in court in less than two weeks for corruption allegations levied against her by the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC).
According to the story, Browne-Lansanah said she categorically rejected the deal and told McGill that she will neither compromise the electoral process in Liberia nor compromise her integrity for personal benefit. She further stated that no member of her staff has been errant to warrant termination, and that she would not oblige. According to her, if McGill and Weah desire to make such unwarranted changes at the NEC, they should go ahead and do it themselves.
One of the Commissioners of the NEC, Floyd Oxley Sayor, was said to have informed President Weah that Browne-Lansanah was not cooperating with the scheme of making him a second-term President, and would likely be an obstructionist if nothing is done at this time.
However, on the same day of the publication of the story, Browne-Lansannah hurriedly organized a press conference to denigrate the image of the Hot Pepper, describing the publication as false and misleading. She said she read the story that morning with “dismay and utmost disgust”, claiming that “at no time did I give any interview or made such baseless statement to any international, local media or group”.
But barely six months after the Hot Pepper’s publication, a new version of the Election Reform Law has been sent by the Executive to the National Legislature, requiring that ele
