FELMAUSA Disappoints the Mandingo Community during meeting with President Sirleaf
By: Bangalee Trawally
15 November, 2010
Leadership upon leadership of FELMAUSA continues to pursue the same leadership style, not seeing the big picture why we (Liberian Mandingoes) need a mother organization like FELMAUSA. Let me first and foremost thank the current leadership of FELMAUSA for making it possible to have an audience with Her Excellency President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf. I think it was a golden opportunity to lay out sensitive issues of concern as well, the plight of the Mandingo people in Liberia, particularly in Nimba County. But I’m greatly disappointed that no one of three speakers at that meeting mentioned anything regarding that. Our leaders take pride in taking photographs with people in national leadership or simply with those in high stature from elsewhere in society for website posting purposes. Don’t get me wrong; I sincerely appreciate FELMAUSA’s effort geared towards the medical assistance she is about to embark upon in Liberia. But in my belief, FELMAUSA’s chief responsibility is advocacy. Anything short of that will also be considered seeking personal aggrandizement. Click here for the aforementioned  meeting!

Konneh Of Our Staff Reports, Senator Prince Y. Johnson has turned his attention to the problems confronting Liberians under the watch of President Ellen Johnson- Sirleaf. At the beginning, just before the Senator arrived, the expressions on the faces of participants were indescribable; but one would call it smiles for some people while frowns and anxiety could be good descriptions for others.

I was not mesmerized when O'Neil Philip, an imprudent and thoughtless student from the University of Liberia, writes in the daily observer his paltry parses of issues he thinks merit attentions. His array of gibberish is titled, "THE EYE OPENER: LIBERIA'S EXTREMIST MUSLIMS AND EMERGING JIHADISTS." In it, he blatantly named Muslims (Mandingos) as perpetrators of crimes and extremist jihadists, even though he does not know the meaning of "extremist jihadists." PHILIP writes," Read detail

Speech by Amb. Barnes at CDC Gala Event 10-16-10
18 October, 2010
Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen: I bring you fraternal greetings from the Liberia Destiny Party (LDP).When I received the invitation from the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) USA to be the Keynote Speaker for this inauguration ceremony, I immediately accepted it with great enthusiasm. My enthusiasm was occasioned by the fact that very rarely do political parties invite the leader of a rival political party to serve as its keynote speaker on such a momentous occasion. The fact that the CDC leadership in the United States could make such a magnanimous gesture demonstrates recognition that the issues confronting our country transcend party loyalty and affiliation and represent challenges that have enjoined every Liberian to be a part of the solution.
