Permanent Representative of Zambia to the UN

Dear Ambassador Kapambwe:

Compliments of the Season! My name is Jones Nhinson Williams, a Liberian citizen resident in the United States, and a professional within the government systems of the United States.

I am writing to protest the unruly attitude of some of your citizens towards the leaders of Liberia. Of particular concern is a young man named Mainda Simataa, a self-professed and indiscipline ‘socialist’. Little Simataa has developed the habit of insulting the president-elect and vice president-elect of Liberia as well as the Liberian people.

First and foremost, Liberia is not a socialist nation and Simataa is not a Liberian. He has no business engaging in Liberian affairs and especially Liberian politics. Assuming he has interest in addressing issues relating to Africa, of which Liberia is a part, he is at liberty to do so without insulting people we cherish as our leaders. Imagine, if young Liberian citizens, many of whom are more educated and write better than little Simataa, could get on social media and use the Internet to rain insults and vulgar language on President Edgar C. Lungu and his wife Esther Lungu as well as against the Zambian people, how will you feel?

In Liberia, we are politically active and engaging but we do so with civility. If civility is not part of Zambia’s political and social culture, it is the duty of Zambians to limit such attitude within the borders of their country.

What President Trump and Kim Jong Un Ate

The historic summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un continued midday Tuesday, as the leaders satisfied their appetites while holding negotiations with a contingent of advisers over a working lunch.

Joining Trump were Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Chief of Staff John Kelly, National Security Advisor John Bolton, U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and Deputy Assistant to the President for Asian Affairs Matthew Pottinger.
