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.
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 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.
We again call on the Government of Liberia(GoL) through its relevant ministries and agencies to do everything possible to address the growing wave of thievery in the country, particularly in Monrovia and its environs.
A self-help initiative embarked upon by residents of the Garza Community for the construction of an alternative road is laudable and must be embraced by all Liberians, as the ingenuity is human driven.
One controversial constitutional issue that arose during the past election had to do with the provision of the code of conduct on resignation of public officials intending to run for elective offices. The law was tested in court and the wrangling that is stirred when the ruling was made by the Supreme Court leaves a bitter taste after.
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.
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.
We wholeheartedly join many of our compatriots in welcoming a request from President George Manneh for an independent autopsy on the remains of fallen Liberian Broadcast Journalist, Zenu Miller.
