Liberia’s Inauguration Day



By Berenice Mulubah and Kru Cherie


Gbana Pekins and big jues

Wheelbarrow boys and Market girls 

Brabees and zogos

Penpen boys and penpen girls 


Big boy one and big boy two

Mamie pepper and teacher pepper

Decembrians and been-tos 

Not forgetting Dr. Turn around


All the Maco(s) and Paco (s)

 That Cerees speaking girl and senate jues

Men have come and men have gone 

Our mothers have given birth to kings and queens 


Stand on Snapper Hill and sing it loud in Kolloque song

Let all the good things flow

Club beer, cane juice and palm wine too

From God to man

the palm wine can’t fini seh 


Tell Ma Hawa to bring the chew

The GB, Fufu and dumb boy too

Palmbutter, torbugee, 

Cassavaleaf can’t fini seh  


You see what God Nah do

Papa God has brought us through

From many years of heartaches and shame

Wiping our tears away


Over the years we lost our way

Spilling our own blood from pole to pole

Swimming in hurts and pain

For so many years things remained the same


Now the time has come 

To soak our feet in the sand of Sun Set beach

So sit right here and look up 

Do you see the Lone star shining down on you


A new day has come 

To spread your lappa and dance 

From broad street to Harper 

Make sure you stop to the grand mansion 


Bring out the kakaleka and puhkayteh dance 

Let the Gbema beat flow in our soul, while we sip on this hot soup

For we celebrate peace, love and unity

On this Inauguration Day

Meet Alice Sumo, the midwife who has 1,000 babies named after her in Liberia

Alice Sumo is a respected nurse in Liberia where she has been a midwife for nearly three decades.  She was so loved and respected in Montserrado County that 1,000 babies have been named after her.
Alice, whose name means 'peace', has worked through the civil war and Ebola to do her job. She delivered her first baby at gun point at the side of the road.  In her three-decade career, she did not stop working even during the epidemic which claimed nearly 5,000 lives in Liberia in 2014 and 2015.  New mothers who Alice has cared for and supported through their pregnancy have called their daughters after her or if it's a boy, named him Alex. 
Alice now runs a maternal health center opened by Save the Children in her rural community. The children are a living testament to the impact Alice has had in Liberia.
