MONROVIA, LIBERIA -For the past two decades or more foreign partners have spent millions of dollars in Liberia to train reporters and editors without considering institutional capacity building, which is a very key component in having a vibrant media.
MONROVIA, LIBERIA -From our vantage point, we want to again encourage our government and its partners as well as all anti-rape crusaders, including the media to leave no stone unturned in ensuring that rape, which is reported to be one of the most serious crimes being committed in the country by unprincipled people, is drastically reduced, if not jettisoned.
MONROVIA, LIBERIA There is a need to continue highlighting the situations of women and girls who suffer violence and abuses in the county so as to influence policy and decision makers to find ways of reducing and/or alleviating these vices in our society.

When then East Timorese pro-independence leader - José Alexandre "Kay RalaXanana" Gusmão told his countrymen and women that not all those who lead a revolution – make good leaders, he spoke from an informed perspective.

MONROVIA, LIBERIA -We are still concerned about the issue of overcrowdings at the various prisons in the country, particularly the Monrovia Central Prison, and the need to urgently address this seemingly old age problem by the Government of Liberia (GoL) through the relevant government functionaries, mainly the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), cannot be overstated.
MONROVIA, LIBERIA - The approach by some people to always address their grievances through violent means needs to be totally discouraged, because this way of doing it is not only illegal, but uncivilized and indiscreet. It is prudent for people to always channel whatever grievances they may have through a peaceful channel instead of violent approach. We have observed continuously that the violent approach exacerbates the problems than solving them. Therefore, it is about time we do away with violent approach in solving our grievances or concerns.
