LIBA President Decries Tribal, Sectarian Division

first_imgLiberian Business Association president Dee Maxwell S. Kemayah is calling Liberians to rise up against those in the habit of using tribal and sectarian divisions to inflict inequality on Liberians.Making the call last Sunday at the Mount Nebo Baptist Church in Sinkor, where he and other personalities of the church were honored, Mr. Kemayah noted that at one point in time a certain group of people sectionalized the people of Liberia and the majority were marginalized in the use of the country’s wealth.There was another time in the country’s history, Mr. Kemayah said, when people were asked for their tribes before receiving any opportunity to acquire something or to have the right of passage.As a result of these situations, the LIBA president said the country has suffered not only economic and developmental retrogression, but also suffered years of civil strife that caused serious consequences on its growth and development.It is this same divide and rule syndrome that the country still experiences today, where millions of citizens are facing abject poverty with no social services extended to them.Sensing that it is the same situation pertaining in some Liberian churches, Mr. Kemayah urged religious institutions including churches and mosques, to practice values that will show cohesion instead of division.To create an inclusive society that will be pleasing to everyone, citizens must seek a person who will bring value to the society and not one who instigates divide and rule.He admonished that Liberians need to go beyond tribal or sectional sentiments to appraise people by what they contribute to the society.The LIBA president was honored along with three others, Senator Edward B. Dagoseh, Stalink K. Javon and David T. Morris, for what the church described as their “valuable services rendered to society”.Senator Dagoseh, who is also a deacon of the church, said in brief remarks that he does not believe in too much talking, but taking concrete actions that will impact people.He then contributed LD$60,000 towards the school project undertaken by the church.The senior pastor of the church, Rev. Galison M. George, recounted that these men, especially Mr. Kemayah, had taken personal interest in the activities of the church.Dea. George O.C. Kaicora, Sr., in his sermon, urged all those serving on the church’s Deacon Board to consider themselves as servants responsible for three tables, which are, the Holy Communion, the pastor’s table and benevolence.Dea. Kaicora urged them not to exercise authority over the pastor of the church, but see themselves as helpers of the pastor.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more


Cevon’s in hot water with Region 10 RDC over “illegal dumping”

first_imgBy Utamu BelleConcerns are presently being raised by the Region 10 Democratic Council (RDC) over the alleged discriminate dumping of waste by Cevon’s Waste Disposal in the vicinity of the Linden Watershed situated at Wismar.The issue formed part of a back and forth discussion at the RDC statutory meeting on Thursday, with Councillor Douglas Gittens referring to the alleged act as an “illegal operation”.The meeting which was held on ThursdayHowever, in 2012, a contract was signed between the previous administration of the RDC and Cevon’s for the company to conduct waste disposal operations in the Linden community. While the Linden Mayor and Town Council (LM&TC) was the sole entity responsible for the community’s waste management, the Council had opted not to engage in collaboration with Cevon’s.In addressing the issue at the meeting, Regional Chairman Renis Morian resorted to informing the Council of the contract which was signed by the previous RDC. He made a promise to have the content of the contract be made available to the Council.“It’s a strange contract. All the then REO signed to is for Cevon’s Waste to operate in Linden. But Cevon’s Waste had to go to the individual homes and get their own contract to pick up the waste from persons. The problem that came out of this is that Cevon’s is dumping within the Watershed Management”, Morian stated.Gittens, who was also a part of the previous RDC indicated that the contract was expected to be overlooked by that Council, however since it was not under its jurisdiction, Cevon’s was instructed to consult with the LM&TC. He opined that this was not done.“…I think they made a decision to send them away and let Linden people deal with the situation because we have the capacity to deal with something like this on our own. People bought trucks and are willing to provide the service. Why somebody got to come from town to do it?” Gittens exclaimed.This was refuted by Councillor Gordon Callender who was part of the previous LM&TC. “We had no discussions over this issue… when that document (was) signed it just appeared just so at the Town Council to say contract signed, Cevon’s in the place. We didn’t know anything about it,” he said.This was partially refuted by Councillor Charles Sampson who was also of LM&TC at the time. Sampson disclosed that initial discussions were conducted at the time, however the Council disagreed with the proposal made by the waste disposal entity.“As a private company, we could not stop Cevon’s from doing business in Linden, especially if they went to individual members of the community and put forward their proposal to do business… We could not object to that… I don’t have a problem with Cevon’s doing business in Linden if they’re doing business with private individuals but we always said that the municipality had a responsibility to collect garbage in the town and that is what we stuck to…”, he reiterated.Meanwhile, Regional Executive Officer Gavin Clarke said while the RDC may not be able to stop Cevon’s from operating, it can still hold the entity responsible for the way it does so, also to terminate its contract if the relevant specifications are not met.last_img read more


Govt taps into Treasury for $6.4 billion

first_imgThe coalition A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC), six months into its second financial year, has already tapped the treasury another .3 billion, in addition to the 0 billion Budget for 2017.Finance Minister Winston Jordan on Friday tabled the first financial paper for 2017Parliament sitting on Friday where legislators heard of monies being withdrawn from the Treasuryfor a period outlined between January 1 and December 31, 2017.The Financial Paper, No 1/2007, as presented by the Finance Minister, details the expenditure being divided into $143.6 million to be used on recurring expenditure to be used by the Ministry of the Presidency and the Finance Ministry.Of that allocation of $143.6 million, the document detailed, $130 million will be utilised by the Finance Ministry, not only for recurring expenditure, but the money also provides for the establishment of a Special Purpose Unit to manage the reform of the sugar industry.According to the Financial Paper, “this amount ($130 million) includes provision for employment costs, utilities, professional and legal fees, advertisements, office space, and operating supplies, furniture and equipment.”This money has been represented as subsidies and contributions to localFinance Minister Winston Jordanorganisations.Meanwhile, provisions have also been made for the Department of Innovation and Education Reform, housed in the Ministry of the Presidency.The Financial Paper outlines the additional spending on this department. One of the glaring increases for this department is the more-than 700 per cent increase in employment cost for its contracted employees – up from an originally voted provision of $899,000 to more than $6.3 million.This department is also slated to receive, under Capital Expenditure, in excess of $3 million for the provision of furniture and equipment.Another of the beneficiaries of the largesse supplementary provisions from the national coffers is the Public Infrastructure Ministry.While some of the provisions represent inflows from foreign-funded projects, in excess of $1.4 billion were taken from the national coffers in order to meet expenditure related to the expansion of the Cheddi Jagan International Airport at $300 million, a final payment on the rehabilitation of the MV Lady Northcote, in addition to money “to meet the increased cost of vehicle.”Other projects for which Government has expended additional sums of money relate to the construction of highway overpasses to be constructed at Houston, Eccles, Peters’ Hall, Diamond, and Providence East Bank Demerara.According to the Financial Paper, “this supplemental request is premised on the fact that the government has successfully completed negotiations with the IDB to utilise uncommitted balances that would have been cancelled as at March 31, 2017…The final disbursement date has consequently been revised to December 31, 2017.Another $160 million have been allocated for repair to the sinkhole project in the vicinity of the Kitty Pump Station.Other projects to benefit from the allocations include several of the large road repairs and construction, and the upgrade of the power grid at almost $2 billion.It was explained in the Financial Paper that the provision represent an inflow from the IDB to facilitate the payment of mobilisation advance and other areas under the programme, including the supervision of civil works and management of the project.The bond and advances were supposed to have been paid in 2016, according to the Finance Minister, but this did not obtain.last_img read more


Raging Buffon’s crazy Champions League farewell

first_img0Shares0000Gianluigi Buffon raged at English referee Michael Oliver and was sent off after he awarded the late penalty that out Real Madrid into the semi-finals of the Champions League © AFP/File / OSCAR DEL POZOTURIN, Italy, Apr 12 – Gianluigi Buffon’s Champions League career came to a bitter end on a crazy night with the Juventus legend sent off in Madrid and then accusing the referee of having “a rubbish bin instead of a heart”.The veteran goalkeeper’s frustration spilled over at the Santiago Bernabeu after Juventus beat Real Madrid 3-1 on the night, but were eliminated 4-3 on aggregate in the quarter-final after English referee Michael Oliver awarded the Spaniards a contested 97th-minute penalty. “In place of a heart he has a rubbish bin,” raged 40-year-old Buffon after Oliver pointed to the spot for Mehdi Benatia’s challenge on Lucas Vazquez in the dying minutes.Buffon was given his first ever red card in 117 Champions League games and after Wojciech Szczesny had taken his place in the Juventus goal, Cristiano Ronaldo coolly slotted home the spot kick to put defending champions Real Madrid through to the semi-finals.“You have to be a murderer to make the last two decisions the referee made,” Buffon, the Juve captain, said later.“You cannot ruin the dreams of a team. I could’ve told the referee anything at that moment, but he had to understand the degree of the disaster he was creating,” he continued.“If you can’t handle the pressure and have the courage to make a decision, then you should just sit in the stands and eat your crisps.”It was another blow for the charismatic 2006 World Cup winner who was reduced to tears after Italy dramatically failed to qualify for the global showpiece in November’s playoffs.Juventus have finished runners-up twice in the Champions League in the past three years and Wednesday’s defeat was probably Buffon’s last chance to continue his bid for the only major title missing from his collection.“I’m not here to judge what the referee saw, because it was a borderline incident,” he said, continuing his diatribe.“All I’ll say is that you can’t be that cynical in the 93rd minute, to shatter the dreams of a team that had given everything it had to give.“I’ve always found it an honour to go up against this team and this club in front of this crowd, but tonight we deserved extra time at the very least.”Juventus president Andrea Agnelli said he could understand Buffon’s fury and called for the introduction of the use of VAR in the Champions League — it is already used in the Serie A in Italy.“The referee did not understand anything, and tonight the least happy person of all should be him,” said Agnelli.Benatia, whose challenge led to the penalty, said: “It’s unbelievable that our captain isn’t allowed to speak to the referee -– the red card was very harsh.”– ‘Stolen dream’ –Before he saw red, Gianluigi Buffon celebrated Juventus’ third goal scored by Blaise Matuidi that put them on level terms with Real Madrid on aggregate © AFP / JAVIER SORIANOBuffon’s dismissal generated a storm back home with Turin daily La Stampa lamenting “the beauty of football, and its cruelty”.“(The penalty) ruined everything, including Buffon’s farewell to the Champions League. The dream was stolen, the achievement cannot be reached. It hurts to go out like this.”“It hurts badly, very badly,” agreed Italian daily Corriere della Sera. “Juventus deserved more, much more, at least extra-time.”“The rage and the pride,” headlined Gazzetta dello Sport of “a night of regrets”.“Every referee knows that there are times when whistling has a different weight, and therefore only the most obvious fouls are punished,” wrote Gazzetta dello Sport, claiming that Oliver “was not up to the challenge”.Tuttosport, a paper based in Juventus’ home city of Turin, said it was “an undeserved ending — just as Buffon doesn’t deserve to end his career in Europe with a red card.”After the frustration, Buffon — who had said this season would be his final one — must turn his attention to winning a seventh straight Serie A title with Juventus, and completing the double with the Italian Cup.Next up is a Serie A game against Sampdoria on Sunday with a potential title decider against Napoli on April 22, and the Italian Cup final against AC Milan on May 9.And there remains another record which could prove a lure for Buffon to continue his club career — Paolo Maldini’s record for Serie A appearances.Buffon has played 635 times in Italy’s top flight, but with seven games remaining this season he would fall short of former AC Milan defender Maldini’s record of 647.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Championship round-up: Charlie Austin double helps QPR to win in six-goal thriller

first_imgQueens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin showed he’s not letting transfer speculation get to him as he hit a double in their 4-2 win over Rotherham.It had looked like the Super Hoops were set for an easy win as they went 3-0 up through Tjaronn hit two goals before Austin’s first, but the Millers hit back through Jonson Clarke-Harris and Tom Thorpe.But Austin stepped up in injury time to slot home a penalty and end Rotherham’s hopes of a comeback, pushing Chris Ramsey’s side up into sixth spot.Ipswich are the early pacesetters though as they beat Preston 2-1 at Deepdale, with strikes from Brett Pitman and Ryan Fraser sandwiching Daniel Johnson’s equaliser.The Tractor Boys now have ten points but top the table as their goal difference is better than Brighton’s, who could only beat Blackburn 1-0, thanks to Kazenga Lua Lua’s effort.A Johann Gudmundsson goal eight minutes into added time handed Charlton a 2-1 victory against Hull City.Simon Makienok opened the scoring for the Addicks and although Abel Hernandez netted a leveller after 89 minutes, it wasn’t enough as Gudmundsson scored the winner and put them third.Fulham also had a late goal to be thankful for as Cauley Woodrow equalised four minutes into injury time when it had looked like Nahki Wells had given Huddersfield the win as it finished 1-1 at Craven Cottage.Bolton finally got their first goal of the campaign as Stephen Dobbie also equalised late in the day in their 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest.David Vaughan opened the scoring after Gary Madine missed a penalty for the Trotters but Dobbie, with his first for the club, ensured the spoils were shared.Bristol City claimed an impressive 1-0 win over Middlesbrough as Joe Bryan  finished off Aaron Wilbraham’s pass, and Michael Keane gave Burnley a win by the same scoreline over Brentford.Meanwhile, Reading’s match with MK Dons finished goalless at the Madejski Stadium.
