LP Wants State Burial for Bryant

first_imgThe national chairman of the opposition Liberty Party, Cllr Fonati Koffa, is calling on the family of the former Chairman of the National Transitional Government of Liberia (NTGL), Charles G. Bryant, to re-consider its decision not to accept a state burial for Mr. Bryant.Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, April 24, at the Party’s District 7 office on Broad Street, the chairman explained that there are reports of Mr. Bryant’s disappointment over how the National Port Authority handled and reported its version of how a certain business’ transaction went down.According to the LP chairman, the former head of state, Mr. Charles Bryant, was one of the engineers of the democracy that every Liberian enjoys today.“There are certain choices that Mr. Charles Bryant should not make for himself, that are related to his service—especially his role in the peace process. Accordingly, the nation must accord him his due for the services he rendered the people of Liberia,” the Chairman emphasized.“Mr. Bryant was able to organize the general and presidential elections in 2005 that was free of violence in the country; we have enjoyed 10 years of peace through his leadership as former chairman of the Interim government,” he said.The chairman further explained that it is important for former heads of state to receive some opportunity in the government sector including special considerations on traveling, business arrangements, and in a number of other activities.“Former heads of state should not be running after their lodges in Liberia when wanting to travel and must make arrangement involved with the process,” he stated.According to the opposition political party chairman, there should be all necessary benefits for all former heads of state that would reflect their legacy of commitment that typified their service.He said, “We want to give the former head of the state, Mr. Bryant, whatsoever he deserves as chairman of the Interim Government of Liberia; this is why we are calling on the family to re-consider its position on Mr. Bryant’s burial.We hope that they (family members) can see reason to identify him as a statesman, who contributed to his country in many appropriate ways. The government must work with the family to ensure that he receives a befitting state-burial.”According to Cllr. Fonati Koffa, the decision by the family members of the former head of state to turn down a state-burial was troubling and disturbing, considering the nation’s own reconciliation and peace process.The chairman said “If the family does not agree to give the former head of state that burial, it means that he might not be given the treatment that a former chairman of the Interim Government of our country deserves.”In another development, Cllr Kofa also stated that it is prudent for the former president, Dr. Charles G. Taylor, to receive his benefit as a former head of state, despite having been prosecuted by the international community. “Mr. Taylor is due under the law of Liberia all benefits that a former president of Liberia deserves.”Meanwhile, the chairman disclosed that they are fully prepared for the upcoming special senatorial election, come October 14, and if a merger becomes necessary, it will be accepted by the Liberty Party.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘Pretentious’

first_imgOpposition Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) has described as “pretentious and not trusted,” recent apology made by Senatorial aspirant Robert Sirleaf, when he appeared on a local radio morning show on November 20.The local media had aired remarks made by Robert in which he vowed to brutalize Liberians who will protest against him and make them “bleed till their stomachs come out of their stomachs.” He made these assertions early this month, at an Ebola awareness event in the Red Hill Field Community in Virginia, outside Monrovia.At a news conference in Monrovia over the weekend, CDC’s National Campaign Steering Committee describes Robert’s apologies as a work of deception, adding, Robert wants to divert attention from his campaign routines that is traditionally accompanied by more gun-toting members of the police than members of the public.”Robert’s apology is pretentious and deceitful, CDC vice chairman for Operations, Mulbah Morlu, said.CDC believes that his apology is a “smoke screen that must be cautiously studied owing to the Sirleafs’ punctuated history, which is replete with continuous disregard for the sanctity of human life and remains insensitive to the struggles and sufferings of Liberians, especially residents of Monrovia.”The party maintained that it holds firm to the belief that Robert’s threat to burst open the stomachs of residents of Monrovia and make them ‘bleed like Ebola patients’ is a threat from the seat of power.“The chilled feelings of uncertainties being generated by this threat to life make ludicrous the Sirleafs’ expectations that [Robert’s] one-line apology would instantly alleviate the fears and insecurities entrenched in his well-pronounced campaign agenda against the young men and women of Monrovia,” CDC vice chairman for Operations stated.Morlu said his party distrusts Robert’s apology, especially when there is evidence that several school-age children were allegedly beaten and brutalized, before being allegedly hustled onto a police pick-up and only released later to nurse their sustained injuries without remorse.CDC believes the Special Senatorial Election throughout the country will be about the patriotic history, professional achievements, moral integrity, and humanitarian records of all candidates, “led by Amb. George Weah’s 25-year selfless service to Liberians at home and abroad; versus candidates of the failed system, led by a pseudo-humanitarian whose consistent advice to his mother and President, and his misgoverning of the national wealth which created the mess the CDC is on a mission to cleanup.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

5 women charged for robbing man in parking lot

first_imgFive women were on Friday placed before the courts when they were charged jointly for a robbery they committed on a man.Lisa Barker of Lot 14 Rasville, Georgetown; Timeka Blair of Congress Drive, South Ruimveldt, Georgetown; Simeon Williams of West La Penitence, Georgetown; Onika Favourite of Cooper Street, Albouystown, Georgetown; and Shanella Adams of Laine Avenue, Georgetown, denied the allegation when it was read to them by Magistrate Leron Daly.The women were charged for robbing the man of items and foreign currency totalling $646,000; property of Phillip Benjamin while they were in the parking lot of Nigel’s Supermarket on September 27, 2018.According to the facts presented to the court by Police Prosecutor Sanj Singh, on the day in question, the females went to the Robb Street, Georgetown parking lot where they met with the Virtual Complainant (VC) who had his car parked.In an attempt to give the women a lift, he cleared the back seat of his vehicle, which had a suitcase and a haversack containing the valuables.Further, as the man was about to place other items into the trunk of the vehicle, which was left opened, he realised that the two pieces of luggage were missing, and the woman left.As a result, the VC then drove to the head of the corner, where he saw one of the women and inquired about the items but the woman denied knowledge of the items.A report was made, and the women were arrested and charged with the offence. The women were placed on $100,000 each. The case will continue on October 26.last_img read more

City hit Southampton to cut Liverpool lead

first_imgBut they allowed a limited Southampton side back into the game after a dominating start, which suggests there are still frailties for Liverpool to exploit.David Silva put City ahead after 10 minutes but they passed up a number of chances to add to the lead and gifted Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg an equaliser in the 37th minute.For a period, Pep Guardiola’s side looked fragile, but a James Ward-Prowse own-goal and a header by Sergio Aguero just before half-time restored their confidence.-Hojberg red cardSaints’ frustrations boiled over with a red card for Hojbjerg after a wild challenge on Fernandinho late in the game.Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl sprang a surprise in his team selection by giving a debut to 18-year-old former Chelsea starlet Kayne Ramsay at right-back.City should have gone ahead in the fifth minute when Jack Stephens allowed Raheem Sterling to steal possession and set up David Silva.But the City man tried to be too deliberate, with his shot blocked by goalkeeper Alex McCarthy.But Saints could also have taken a more surprising lead after eight minutes when Mohamed Elyounoussi’s clever flick over the City defence sent Charlie Austin clear.Austin’s first touch, however, was dreadful and sent the ball into Ederson’s grateful arms.-Behind againInstead of being a goal up, the home side were behind within a minute.David Silva, who opened the scoring in Manchester City’s 3-1 win away to Southampton on Sunday, applauds fans after full-time at St Mary’sThe left side of their defence was opened up with ease by a simple one-two, leaving Bernardo Silva clear of full-back Matt Targett and free to advance down the right. He had all the time he wanted to pick out the unmarked David Silva, who hit the ball first-time past McCarthy.Riyad Mahrez then shot wide after a move that began with City playing a series of passes inside their own penalty area.And Aguero squandered an excellent chance in the 25th minute, hitting his shot against McCarthy after Sterling had accelerated past the hapless Targett.But overplaying at the other end almost proved City’s undoing.-Ederson saveEderson was nearly caught by Austin before dribbling round the striker. But he showed a mastery of the more conventional goalkeeping arts on the half-hour with a diving save to keep out Austin’s glancing header from a corner by Ward-Prowse.City did not heed the warning and Saints were level after 36 minutes.Sergio Aguero scores against SouthamptonOleksandr Zinchenko was slow to see Hojbjerg closing in on him and the Southampton captain robbed the Ukraine defender and strode forward before lashing the ball in from 15 yards.– City double stuns Saints –Zinchenko could count himself lucky that referee Paul Tierney did not see his barge on Ward-Prowse after 44 minutes as a penalty.And the home crowd were still complaining about that decision when City retook the lead on the stroke of half-time.Sterling forced his way down the left and fired in a low cross that hit the foot of Ward-Prowse and zipped between the surprised McCarthy and his near post.And the crowd’s disbelief was complete three minutes into first-half stoppage time when Aguero rose unchallenged by Jan Bednarek to nod Zinchenko’s cross under McCarthy.In the second half both sides went through the motions. City had the points they needed and Southampton were happy to avoid further damage to their confidence and goal difference. But even then City could have had three or four more goals.Sterling shot straight at McCarthy, Aguero hit the angle of the post and crossbar, and Mahrez blasted straight at the goalkeeper.Frustration got the better of Hojbjerg, who launched into a scissors-style challenge on Fernandinho and was rightly sent off.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000David Silva celebrates his goal against Southampton with teammate Bernardo Silva on December 30, 2018SOUTHAMPTON, United Kingdom, Dec 30 – Manchester City showed they are willing to accept the challenge of Liverpool in the race for the Premier League title with a 3-1 win away to Southampton on Sunday.Following shock defeats by Crystal Palace and Leicester, reigning champions City cut the gap between themselves and Premier League leaders Liverpool to seven points ahead of their meeting with the Merseysiders at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday.last_img read more

GOVERNMENT IS FAILING DONEGAL’S 28,000 UNEMPLOYED, TD TELLS MINISTER

first_imgA DONEGAL TD has launched a scathing attack on Jobs Minister Richard Bruton, slamming the failure of the IDA to bring any jobs to Donegal last year and the net loss of 129 positions by Enterprise Ireland.Speaking in the Dáil tonight on a Sinn Féin Private Members Motion on job creation, Donegal TD, Pádraig Mac Lochlainn asked challenged Mr Bruton how he could justify the recent track record in Donegal of the Government’s job creation agencies, the IDA and Enterprise Ireland considering that the county has around twice the national average of unemployment at 28% of the workforce.He directly appealed to Minister Bruton who was present in the Dáil chamber for the debate, to make a special focused effort to address Donegal’s jobs crisis. Deputy Mac Lochlainn: “The Governments failure to address the jobs crisis in Donegal is on a scale that is truly shocking.“In 2012, the IDA failed to bring any potential investors to Donegal for a site visit while companies supported by Enterprise Ireland witnessed a net loss of 129 jobs, the second highest net loss per county in the state.“Tonight I asked the Minister how he can possibly defend this track record considering there are over 22,000 people unemployed in our county or around 28% of our workforce”.He continued: “This government has promised much on jobs and delivered little but spin. The Fine Gael- Labour coalition has been in power for two years and we are now onto its second Action Plan for Jobs, yet unemployment remains desperately high in Donegal and across the state. “Indeed in Donegal, emigration has a stronger impact on unemployment rates than government policy. The scale of the jobs and emigration crisis facing our people requires an immediate and focused investment to stimulate growth and jobs.“We are calling for a larger scale investment to get our people back to work and to tackle the major competitiveness issues our economy faces. It is time for this government to back up rhetoric with investment. It is what our people need and what our people expect.” GOVERNMENT IS FAILING DONEGAL’S 28,000 UNEMPLOYED, TD TELLS MINISTER was last modified: March 13th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:000 UNEMPLOYEDGOVERNMENT IS FAILING DONEGAL’S 28TD TELLS MINISTERlast_img read more
