President Weah Commends Morocco’s AU Return as Reinforcing African Unity

President George Weah lauded Morocco’s return to the African Union on Sunday. For Weah, Morocco’s return reinforces the African unity.

Weah described Morocco’s return as a positive development for the continent, in a press meeting parallel to the 30th AU Heads of State and Government Summit, held in the Ethiopian capital

The 30th AU Summit is marked by the participation of three newly-appointed Presidents: Liberia’s George Weah, Kenya’s Uhuru Kenyatta and Angola’s Joao Lourenco.

Thirty countries supported Morocco’s bid to return to the African Union last year, while nine countries stood against the bid, including Algeria. Many African leaders welcomed Morocco’s return after 33-year of absence. In April 2017, Alpha Conde, President of the Republic of Guinea said that “Morocco’s return to the AU will make a remarkable contribution to this exhilarating undertaking of solidarity among the African peoples.”

Conde’s remarks on Morocco’s return are echoed by many African leaders, including Tanzanian Foreign Minister Augustine Mahiga, who said on Friday, January 26, that “Morocco’s contribution to the AU is of great importance,” when recalling King Mohammed VI’s “historical” speech at the 28th AU Summit in January 2017.

'He kicked me in the stomach, I peed on myself. He body-slammed me to the floor twice and told me he would kill me, no one will find my body.: In her journey to recovery, domestic violence survivor Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman tells it all

The tragic story of Christine R. M. Dennis-Freeman, like that of Agnes Yarlee and Diane Hart before her, has brought the issue of domestic abuse out of the dark unspoken place it thrives and into the open.
It's horrendous that it takes the death of women, or an attempt to kill women, to get a serious debate  on the issue of domestic abuse. Discussing domestic violence in our society is a real taboo and most men within the Liberian society, don't even find the topic worth their time, as compared to discussing sports, politics and corruption. 
But these women mention above are just the tip of the iceberg.


Defying the odds, Mrs. Dennis-Freeman refuses to keep her mouth shut and go with the flow of the Liberian society.  She courageously sat in a wheel chair up to 1:30am, sharing her story with C Liberia Clearly.  In her own words, she walked us through the day that led to her horrific story.

“I commend Mayor Smith. He’s done a great job for the city, and I hope to work with him in the future," Collins said. 
At the La Pa Grill on 6th Avenue in downtown Helena, Collins and other members of the self-described “progressive ticket” watched and waited for the results of the 2017 election.
The feeling was festive as Collins received a call from U.S. Sen. Jon Tester congratulating Collins on his victory. Victory cigars were passed around the room at the …
